- The revenue growth came in higher than the industry average of 3.8%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 12.7%. This growth in revenue does not appear to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, displayed by a decline in earnings per share.
- CRY has no debt to speak of therefore resulting in a debt-to-equity ratio of zero, which we consider to be a relatively favorable sign. Along with the favorable debt-to-equity ratio, the company maintains an adequate quick ratio of 1.35, which illustrates the ability to avoid short-term cash problems.
- The gross profit margin for CRYOLIFE INC is rather high; currently it is at 68.10%. Regardless of CRY's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, CRY's net profit margin of 4.60% is significantly lower than the same period one year prior.
- The company, on the basis of change in net income from the same quarter one year ago, has underperformed when compared to that of the S&P 500 and greatly underperformed compared to the Health Care Equipment & Supplies industry average. The net income has decreased by 23.8% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, dropping from $2.02 million to $1.54 million.
- The company's current return on equity has slightly decreased from the same quarter one year prior. This implies a minor weakness in the organization. In comparison to the other companies in the Health Care Equipment & Supplies industry and the overall market, CRYOLIFE INC's return on equity is significantly below that of the industry average and is below that of the S&P 500.
