Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates Vantiv as a

buy

. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, compelling growth in net income, good cash flow from operations, expanding profit margins and notable return on equity. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had generally high debt management risk by most measures that we evaluated.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • The revenue growth greatly exceeded the industry average of 26.8%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 29.1%. Growth in the company's revenue appears to have helped boost the earnings per share.
  • The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has significantly exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the IT Services industry. The net income increased by 2693.0% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from -$1.41 million to $36.54 million.
  • Net operating cash flow has increased to $250.54 million or 45.86% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, VANTIV INC has also vastly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of -8.94%.
  • 45.67% is the gross profit margin for VANTIV INC which we consider to be strong. It has increased from the same quarter the previous year. Despite the strong results of the gross profit margin, VNTV's net profit margin of 4.64% significantly 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 IT Services industry and the overall market on the basis of return on equity, VANTIV INC has underperformed in comparison with the industry average, but has exceeded that of the S&P 500.
