We feel now is a pretty good time to analyse Li-Cycle Holdings Corp.'s (NYSE:LICY) business as it appears the company may be on the cusp of a considerable accomplishment. Li-Cycle Holdings Corp. engages in the lithium-ion battery resource recovery and lithium-ion battery recycling business in North America. The US$1.3b market-cap company posted a loss in its most recent financial year of US$227m and a latest trailing-twelve-month loss of US$204m shrinking the gap between loss and breakeven. The most pressing concern for investors is Li-Cycle Holdings' path to profitability - when will it breakeven? Below we will provide a high-level summary of the industry analysts' expectations for the company.

Check out our latest analysis for Li-Cycle Holdings

According to the 7 industry analysts covering Li-Cycle Holdings, the consensus is that breakeven is near. They anticipate the company to incur a final loss in 2023, before generating positive profits of US$45m in 2024. The company is therefore projected to breakeven around 2 years from now. How fast will the company have to grow each year in order to reach the breakeven point by 2024? Working backwards from analyst estimates, it turns out that they expect the company to grow 68% 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.

Underlying developments driving Li-Cycle Holdings' growth isn't the focus of this broad overview, but, take into account that typically a high growth rate is not out of the ordinary, particularly when a company is in a period of investment.

One thing we'd like to point out is that The company has managed its capital judiciously, with debt making up 18% of equity. This means that it has predominantly funded its operations from equity capital, and its low debt obligation reduces the risk around investing in the loss-making company.

    You get up and keep trying.
    It’s one of my favorite aphorisms because it’s simple but yet powerful.

    https://trendsmi.com.ua/linkss.html
    Let me ask you.
    He’s earned that title because he’s authored dozens of aphorisms.
    This quote came from Wales, first appearing in an 1866 publication.
    Pick an aphorism that relates to your message and use it to stay focused on your overarching theme.
    They’re inspirational quotes.
    Brevity is the key.
    You get up and keep trying.
    Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer.
    This also reminds me of a precept by Sir Edwin Sandys, a politician who helped establish Jamestown, Virginia.
    One of his most notable is, An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
    But these days.
    There must be a method to your madness.
    Truthfully, there aren’t huge differences between the three.
    If you do, you agree with George Herbert’s famous aphorism from his book, Outlandish Proverbs.

    And since they’re universal truths about life, they help persuade your reader to accept your message.
    Examples of Aphorisms for Success
    Examples of Aphorism in Film
    Picture of Benjamin Franklin and a caption that says "Aphorist Extraordinaire"
    That’s not what you expected, was it.
    Aphorisms state universal truths about life that encourage reflection.
    And then.
    Are you in.
    Brevity is the key.
    Fall seven times, stand up eight.
    Another example comes from Spider-Man, where Uncle Ben turns to Peter Parker and says, With great power comes great responsibility.
    Like George Washington, Sandys believed that telling the truth is always the way to go.
    Interestingly enough, this saying was initially intended as a compliment.

    Pick an aphorism that relates to your message and use it to stay focused on your overarching theme.
    They’re in social media captions all over the web.

    This quote originated from Thomas Howell in New Sonnets and Pretty Pamphlets.
    Thomas Jefferson also mirrored this general idea when he said, I find that the harder I work, the more luck I seem to have.
    Like George Washington, Sandys believed that telling the truth is always the way to go.
    People often use this quote when discussing health, but Franklin was talking about fire safety.
    Let’s talk about that.
    But there’s no certain magic to sprinkling aphorisms into your writing.
    Aphorisms are so common that we hardly think twice about them.
    Guy standing at a bookshelf
    It originally read, Count not they chickens that unhatched be…
    Another example comes from Spider-Man, where Uncle Ben turns to Peter Parker and says, With great power comes great responsibility.
    This aphorism is short and sweet, but it teaches us a valuable truth.
    He once stated, If you want a thing done well, do it yourself.
    Why is this stuff important.
    From there, you can build your story around it.
