SIMPSON MANUFACTURING INC's gross profit margin for the first quarter of its fiscal year 2016 is essentially unchanged when compared to the same period a year ago. Sales and net income have grown, and although the growth in revenues has outpaced the average competitor within the industry, the net income growth has not. SIMPSON MANUFACTURING INC is extremely liquid. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 3.69 which clearly shows the ability to cover any short-term cash needs. The company's liquidity has decreased from the same period last year, indicating deteriorating cash flow.
At the same time, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has remained virtually unchanged only increasing by 1.04% 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.
