Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates M/A-COM Technology Solutions Holdings as a

hold

. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, good cash flow from operations and expanding profit margins. However, as a counter to these strengths, we also find weaknesses including unimpressive growth in net income and feeble growth in the company's earnings per share.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • The revenue growth greatly exceeded the industry average of 9.4%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 42.1%. 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.
  • Net operating cash flow has significantly increased by 644.79% to $15.51 million when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, M/A-COM TECHNOLOGY SOLUTIONS has also vastly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of -23.28%.
  • MTSI's debt-to-equity ratio of 0.83 is somewhat low overall, but it is high when compared to the industry average, implying that the management of the debt levels should be evaluated further. Despite the fact that MTSI's debt-to-equity ratio is mixed in its results, the company's quick ratio of 2.11 is high and demonstrates strong liquidity.
  • M/A-COM TECHNOLOGY SOLUTIONS has experienced 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, M/A-COM TECHNOLOGY SOLUTIONS reported poor results of -$0.32 versus -$0.25 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($1.90 versus -$0.32).
  • The company, on the basis of change in net income from the same quarter one year ago, has significantly underperformed when compared to that of the S&P 500 and the Semiconductors & Semiconductor Equipment industry. The net income has significantly decreased by 146.9% when compared to the same quarter one year ago, falling from -$6.31 million to -$15.57 million.
