WIPRO LTD's gross profit margin for the first quarter of its fiscal year 2014 has increased when compared to the same period a year ago. The company managed to grow both sales and net income at a faster pace than the average competitor in its industry this quarter as compared to the same quarter a year ago. WIPRO LTD is extremely liquid. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 2.28 which clearly shows the ability to cover any short-term cash needs. The company managed to increase its liquidity from the same period a year ago, despite already having strong liquidity to begin with. This would indicate improved cash flow.
During the same period, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has increased by 20.47% 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.
