Staffing 360 Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ:STAF) Is About To Turn The Corner

With the business potentially at an important milestone, we thought we'd take a closer look at Staffing 360 Solutions, Inc.'s (NASDAQ:STAF) future prospects. Staffing 360 Solutions, Inc., a staffing company, engages in the acquisition of staffing companies in the United States and the United Kingdom. With the latest financial year loss of US$24m and a trailing-twelve-month loss of US$19m, the US$33m market-cap company alleviated its loss by moving closer towards its target of breakeven. Many investors are wondering about the rate at which Staffing 360 Solutions will turn a profit, with the big question being “when will the company breakeven?” We've put together a brief outline of industry analyst expectations for the company, its year of breakeven and its implied growth rate.

According to some industry analysts covering Staffing 360 Solutions, breakeven is near. They expect the company to post a final loss in 2020, before turning a profit of US$14m in 2021. Therefore, the company is expected to breakeven roughly a year from now or less! How fast will the company have to grow to reach the consensus forecasts that anticipate breakeven by 2021? Working backwards from analyst estimates, it turns out that they expect the company to grow 90% year-on-year, on average, which signals high confidence from analysts. Should the business grow at a slower rate, it will become profitable at a later date than expected.

Given this is a high-level overview, we won’t go into details of Staffing 360 Solutions' upcoming projects, but, keep in mind that generally a high growth rate is not out of the ordinary, particularly when a company is in a period of investment.

One thing we would like to bring into light with Staffing 360 Solutions is it currently has negative equity on its balance sheet. This can sometimes arise from accounting methods used to deal with accumulated losses from prior years, which are viewed as liabilities carried forward until it cancels out in the future. Oftentimes, losses exist only on paper but other times, it can be a red flag.
