Paysafe Limited (NYSE:PSFE): When Will It Breakeven?

·2 min read

Paysafe Limited (NYSE:PSFE) is possibly approaching a major achievement in its business, so we would like to shine some light on the company. Paysafe Limited provides digital commerce solutions to online businesses, SMB merchants, and consumers through its Paysafe Network worldwide. The company’s loss has recently broadened since it announced a US$127m loss in the full financial year, compared to the latest trailing-twelve-month loss of US$205m, moving it further away from breakeven. Many investors are wondering about the rate at which Paysafe will turn a profit, with the big question being “when will the company breakeven?” In this article, we will touch on the expectations for the company's growth and when analysts expect it to become profitable.

Check out our latest analysis for Paysafe

Paysafe is bordering on breakeven, according to the 9 American IT analysts. They anticipate the company to incur a final loss in 2021, before generating positive profits of US$84m in 2022. The company is therefore projected to breakeven just over a year from now. In order to meet this breakeven date, we calculated the rate at which the company must grow year-on-year. It turns out an average annual growth rate of 116% is expected, which signals high confidence from analysts. If this rate turns out to be too aggressive, the company may become profitable much later than analysts predict.

Underlying developments driving Paysafe's growth isn’t the focus of this broad overview, though, take into account that generally a high growth rate is not out of the ordinary, particularly when a company is in a period of investment.

Before we wrap up, there’s one issue worth mentioning. Paysafe currently has a relatively high level of debt. Typically, debt shouldn’t exceed 40% of your equity, which in Paysafe's case is 84%. A higher level of debt requires more stringent capital management which increases the risk in investing in the loss-making company.
