Financial Analysis


LINDSAY CORP's gross profit margin for the first quarter of its fiscal year 2016 has increased when compared to the same period a year ago. Sales and net income have dropped, however the growth has outpaced the average competitor within the industry. LINDSAY CORP is extremely liquid. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 2.28 which clearly shows the ability to cover any short-term cash needs. LNN 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 decreased by 20.16% 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.
