IROBOT CORP's gross profit margin for the first quarter of its fiscal year 2015 is essentially unchanged when compared to the same period a year ago. Even though sales increased, the net income has decreased. IROBOT CORP is extremely liquid. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 4.35 which clearly shows the ability to cover any short-term cash needs. IRBT 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.
During the same period, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has increased by 13.68% 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.
