SILGAN HOLDINGS INC's gross profit margin for the third quarter of its fiscal year 2015 has decreased when compared to the same period a year ago. Sales and net income have dropped, although the growth in revenues underperformed the average competitor within the industry, the net income growth did not. SILGAN HOLDINGS INC has weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.75 which shows a lack of ability to cover short-term cash needs. The liquidity decreased from the same period a year ago, despite already having weak liquidity to begin with. This would indicate deteriorating cash flow.
During the same period, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has decreased by 19.12% from the same quarter last year. Overall, the key liquidity measurements indicate that the company is in a position in which financial difficulties could develop in the future.
