IGATE CORP's gross profit margin for the third quarter of its fiscal year 2014 has decreased when compared to the same period a year ago. The company managed to grow both sales and net income at a faster pace than the average competitor in its industry this quarter as compared to the same quarter a year ago. IGATE CORP is extremely liquid. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 2.07 which clearly shows the ability to cover any short-term cash needs. IGTE managed to increase the liquidity from the same period a year ago, despite already having very strong liquidity to begin with. This would indicate improved cash flow.
At the same time, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has greatly increased by 34.97% from the same quarter last year. Overall, the key liquidity measurements indicate that the company is very unlikely to face financial difficulties in the near future.
