- The revenue growth came in higher than the industry average of 14.8%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 44.2%. 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.
- The debt-to-equity ratio is somewhat low, currently at 0.90, and is less than that of the industry average, implying that there has been a relatively successful effort in the management of debt levels. Despite the fact that EXC's debt-to-equity ratio is low, the quick ratio, which is currently 0.57, displays a potential problem in covering short-term cash needs.
- EXELON CORP has exprienced a steep decline in earnings per share in the most recent quarter in comparison to its performance from the same quarter a year ago. The company has reported a trend of declining earnings per share over the past two years. However, the consensus estimate suggests that this trend should reverse in the coming year. During the past fiscal year, EXELON CORP reported lower earnings of $1.40 versus $3.75 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($2.50 versus $1.40).
- The gross profit margin for EXELON CORP is rather low; currently it is at 20.80%. It has decreased significantly from the same period last year. Along with this, the net profit margin of 6.01% trails that of the industry average.
- Net operating cash flow has decreased to $1,574.00 million or 18.69% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, when comparing the cash generation rate to the industry average, the firm's growth is significantly lower.
