PHILIP MORRIS INTERNATIONAL'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. Sales and net income have dropped, however the growth has outpaced the average competitor within the industry. PHILIP MORRIS INTERNATIONAL has very weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.35 which clearly shows a lack of ability to cover short-term cash needs. The company's liquidity decreased from the same period a year ago, despite already having very weak liquidity to begin with. This would indicate deteriorating cash flow.
At the same time, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has significantly decreased by 58.08% 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.
