Financial Analysis


SUPERVALU INC's gross profit margin for the third quarter of its fiscal year 2015 is essentially unchanged when compared to the same period a year ago. Sales and net income have dropped, although the growth in net income underperformed the average competitor within the industry, the revenue growth did not. SUPERVALU INC 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 has decreased from the same period last year.

At the same time, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has greatly increased by 31.09% 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.
