CENTRAL EUROPEAN MEDIA's gross profit margin for the fourth quarter of its fiscal year 2014 has significantly increased when compared to the same period a year ago. Even though sales decreased, the net income has increased. CENTRAL EUROPEAN MEDIA has very weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.47 which clearly shows a lack of ability to cover short-term cash needs. The liquidity decreased from the same period a year ago, despite already having weak liquidity to begin with. This would indicate deteriorating cash flow.
During the same period, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has decreased by 22.26% from the same quarter last year. The key liquidity measurements indicate that the company is in a position in which financial difficulties could develop in the near future.
