- SHEN's revenue growth has slightly outpaced the industry average of 5.8%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 13.9%. This growth in revenue appears to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, improving the earnings per share.
- The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has significantly exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the Wireless Telecommunication Services industry. The net income increased by 47.5% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from $3.03 million to $4.47 million.
- Net operating cash flow has increased to $22.45 million or 25.06% when compared to the same quarter last year. The firm also exceeded the industry average cash flow growth rate of -24.08%.
- The gross profit margin for SHENANDOAH TELECOMMUN CO is rather high; currently it is at 57.80%. It has increased from the same quarter the previous year. Regardless of the strong results of the gross profit margin, the net profit margin of 6.50% trails the industry average.
- SHEN's debt-to-equity ratio of 0.87 is somewhat low overall, but it is high when compared to the industry average, implying that the management of the debt levels should be evaluated further. Regardless of the somewhat mixed results with the debt-to-equity ratio, the company's quick ratio of 0.81 is weak.
