Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates Controladora Vuela Compania de Aviacion SAB as a

hold

. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and notable return on equity. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including unimpressive growth in net income, premium valuation and poor profit margins.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • The revenue growth greatly exceeded the industry average of 6.6%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 40.7%. 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.
  • VLRS's debt-to-equity ratio is very low at 0.23 and is currently below that of the industry average, implying that there has been very successful management of debt levels. Although the company had a strong debt-to-equity ratio, its quick ratio of 0.79 is somewhat weak and could be cause for future problems.
  • 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 Airlines industry average. The net income has significantly decreased by 25.1% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, falling from $48.31 million to $36.18 million.
