German term or phrase: ausgabenneutral
Bis zum Erreichen des Break-Even sind diese Projekte weiterhin ausgabenneutral, parallel sind wir bestrebt alternative Finanzierungsmöglichkeiten zu finden, um das enorme Potenzial dieser Produkte nicht ungenutzt lassen zu müssen.

Does anyone now the UK equivalent? Is it cash-flow neutral - but then there is also the term einnahmenneutral...
Many thanks in advance.
