Analysts Expect Breakeven For SiteMinder Limited (ASX:SDR) Before Long
With the business potentially at an important milestone, we thought we'd take a closer look at SiteMinder Limited's (ASX:SDR) future prospects. SiteMinder Limited develops, markets, and sells online guest acquisition platform and commerce solutions for accommodation providers in Australia, the Asia Pacific, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and the Americas. On 30 June 2022, the AU$1.1b market-cap company posted a loss of AU$110m for its most recent financial year. The most pressing concern for investors is SiteMinder's path to profitability – when will it breakeven? We've put together a brief outline of industry analyst expectations for the company, its year of breakeven and its implied growth rate.

Consensus from 12 of the Australian Software analysts is that SiteMinder is on the verge of breakeven. They expect the company to post a final loss in 2024, before turning a profit of AU$1.9m in 2025. The company is therefore projected to breakeven around 2 years from now. What rate will the company have to grow year-on-year in order to breakeven on this date? Using a line of best fit, we calculated an average annual growth rate of 78%, which is rather optimistic! If this rate turns out to be too aggressive, the company may become profitable much later than analysts predict.
Given this is a high-level overview, we won’t go into details of SiteMinder's upcoming projects, however, keep in mind that by and large a high forecast growth rate is not unusual for a company that is currently undergoing an investment period.
Before we wrap up, there’s one aspect worth mentioning. SiteMinder currently has no debt on its balance sheet, which is rare for a loss-making growth company, which typically has high debt relative to its equity. The company currently operates purely off its shareholder funding and has no debt obligation, reducing concerns around repayments and making it a less risky investment.
