- FBR's revenue growth has slightly outpaced the industry average of 15.2%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 20.7%. Growth in the company's revenue appears to have helped boost the earnings per share.
- The debt-to-equity ratio is somewhat low, currently at 0.71, and is less than that of the industry average, implying that there has been a relatively successful effort in the management of debt levels. To add to this, FBR has a quick ratio of 1.72, which demonstrates the ability of the company to cover short-term liquidity needs.
- 47.30% is the gross profit margin for FIBRIA CELULOSE SA which we consider to be strong. 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 2.99% trails the industry average.
- The return on equity has improved slightly when compared to the same quarter one year prior. This can be construed as a modest strength in the organization. Compared to other companies in the Paper & Forest Products industry and the overall market, FIBRIA CELULOSE SA's return on equity significantly trails that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
