Financial Analysis

ADVANCED EMISSIONS SOLUTIONS's gross profit margin for the first quarter of its fiscal year 2016 has increased when compared to the same period a year ago. Sales and net income have grown, and although the growth in revenues has outpaced the average competitor within the industry, the net income growth has not. ADVANCED EMISSIONS SOLUTIONS has very weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.38 which clearly shows a lack of ability to cover short-term cash needs. The company's liquidity has decreased from the same period last year.

At the same time, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has significantly decreased by 229.40% from the same quarter last year. The key liquidity measurements indicate that the company is in a position in which financial difficulties could develop in the near future.

Along with this, the price-to-book ratio is also meaningless due to a negative book value for the company, making any comparisons useless. The current price-to-sales ratio is above both the S&P 500 average and the industry average, indicating a premium.
