. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, impressive record of earnings per share growth, compelling growth in net income, good cash flow from operations and expanding profit margins. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat disappointing return on equity.
Highlights from the ratings report include:

The company has demonstrated a pattern of positive earnings per share growth over the past two years. We feel that this trend should continue. During the past fiscal year, FLEETCOR TECHNOLOGIES INC increased its bottom line by earning $3.37 versus $2.51 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($5.11 versus $3.37).
- The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has exceeded that of the S&P 500 and greatly outperformed compared to the IT Services industry average. The net income increased by 21.5% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, going from $78.62 million to $95.51 million.
- Net operating cash flow has increased to $159.77 million or 27.51% when compared to the same quarter last year. The firm also exceeded the industry average cash flow growth rate of -2.63%.
- The gross profit margin for FLEETCOR TECHNOLOGIES INC is rather high; currently it is at 57.09%. Regardless of FLT's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, FLT's net profit margin of 32.34% significantly outperformed against the industry.
