GENCO SHIPPING & TRADING's gross profit margin for the third quarter of its fiscal year 2013 has increased when compared to the same period a year ago. Sales and net income have grown, and although the growth in revenues has outpaced the average competitor within the industry, the net income growth has not. GENCO SHIPPING & TRADING has very weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.09 which clearly shows a lack of ability to cover short-term cash needs. The company's liquidity has decreased from the same period last year.
During the same period, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has decreased by 14.40% 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.
