Financial Analysis

ALLERGAN PLC's gross profit margin for the fourth quarter of its fiscal year 2016 is essentially unchanged when compared to the same period a year ago. The company has grown sales and net income during the past quarter when compared with the same quarter a year ago, however, it was unable to keep up with the growth of the average competitor within its industry. ALLERGAN PLC is extremely liquid. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 2.01 which clearly shows the ability to cover any short-term cash needs. The company's liquidity has increased from the same period last year.

During the same period, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has remained unchanged from the same quarter last year. Overall, the key liquidity measurements indicate that the company is very unlikely to face financial difficulties in the near future.
