American Resources Corp. (Indiana)Find Ratings Reports
AMERICAN RES CORP's gross profit margin for the first quarter of its fiscal year 2019 has significantly decreased when compared to the same period a year ago. Sales and net income have dropped, although the growth in revenues underperformed the average competitor within the industry, the net income growth did not. AMERICAN RES CORP has very weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.04 which clearly shows a lack of ability to cover short-term cash needs. The company's liquidity decreased from the same period a year ago, despite already having very weak liquidity to begin with. This would indicate deteriorating cash flow.
At the same time, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has greatly increased by 131.37% 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.
