Nanobiotix S.A.'s (EPA:NANO) most recent earnings announcement in December 2018 indicated that losses became smaller relative to the prior year's level as a result of recent tailwinds Investors may find it useful to understand how market analysts predict Nanobiotix's earnings growth trajectory over the next couple of years and whether the future looks brighter. Note that I will be looking at net income excluding extraordinary items to get a better understanding of the underlying drivers of earnings.
Market analysts' consensus outlook for the upcoming year seems relatively muted, with earnings continuing to flop around in the negative territory, reaching -€30.7m in 2020. However, earnings should move into an upward direction, reaching -€31.7m in 2021, and -€32.9m in 2022.
Although it is informative knowing the rate of growth each year relative to today’s figure, it may be more valuable to gauge the rate at which the business is rising or falling every year, on average. The pro of this approach is that it ignores near term flucuations and accounts for the overarching direction of Nanobiotix's earnings trajectory over time, be more volatile. To calculate this rate, I've appended a line of best fit through analyst consensus of forecasted earnings. The slope of this line is the rate of earnings growth, which in this case is -4.1%. This means that, we can presume Nanobiotix will chip away at a rate of -4.1% every year for the next few years.
