Though most of the broking firms have given buy ratings. The company has reported a net loss of $74.8 million last year, which is more than double the net loss of $32.78 million in 2017. UBS projects 50% compound annual revenue growth by 2023. The company had posted a net loss of $52.9 million for the first six months of 2019.

The company is not yet profitable but Credit Suisse projects the teeth-straightening start-up can reach profitability by 2020.

Meanwhile, the funds raised through an IPO will be used to pay bonuses, to fund the taxes and other obligations relating to its incentive bonus agreements, to redeem LLC units from pre-IPO investors and to fund a dividend to those investors, with the rest to be spent on general corporate purposes.

On the other hand, Wolf Haldenstein Adler Freeman & Herz LLP  announced that a federal class action securities lawsuit has been filed in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan against SDC related with the Company’s September 2019 initial public offering.

Meanwhile, SDC got launched in the first international market, Canada, in November 2018, then the second international market, Australia, in the second quarter of 2019, and the third international market, the U.K., in the third quarter of 2019. The company has approximately 75% of the total market opportunity outside of the U.S., and therefore project significant opportunity to grow internationally. In the third quarter of 2019, the company has launched the innovative Nighttime Clear Aligner product into the U.S. market, and the company anticipates to roll out this new product into the other markets throughout the third and fourth quarters of 2019. This proprietary new product, which requires only 10 hours of nightly wear, will enable the company to expand the market to customers who are unwilling or unable to wear aligners for the 22-hour daily wear cycle typically required with traditional clear aligner therapy.
