Analysts expect that its growth to keep slowing in light of the rising competition.
But there are also some positives. There is a likelihood that Boohoo could be a good acquisition target now that its stock price has become attractive. For one, this is a company with over £276 million in cash and an adjusted EBITDA of £173 million. Yet it is valued at just £1 billion.
