Financial Analysis


PDF SOLUTIONS INC's gross profit margin for the first quarter of its fiscal year 2015 has increased when compared to the same period a year ago. Sales and net income have dropped, underperforming the average competitor within its industry. PDF SOLUTIONS INC is extremely liquid. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 13.34 which clearly shows the ability to cover any short-term cash needs. PDFS 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 21.56% 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.
