Many investors are wondering about the rate at which Xponential Fitness 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.

Xponential Fitness is bordering on breakeven, according to the 7 American Hospitality analysts. They anticipate the company to incur a final loss in 2021, before generating positive profits of US$32m in 2022. Therefore, the company is expected to breakeven just over a year from today. How fast will the company have to grow each year in order to reach the breakeven point by 2022? Working backwards from analyst estimates, it turns out that they expect the company to grow 57% year-on-year, on average, which is extremely buoyant. If this rate turns out to be too aggressive, the company may become profitable much later than analysts predict.

We’re not going to go through company-specific developments for Xponential Fitness given that this is a high-level summary, though, bear in mind that generally a high forecast growth rate is not unusual for a company that is currently undergoing an investment period.

One thing we would like to bring into light with Xponential Fitness is its debt-to-equity ratio of over 2x. Typically, debt shouldn’t exceed 40% of your equity, and the company has considerably exceeded this. A higher level of debt requires more stringent capital management which increases the risk around investing in the loss-making company.
