Financial Analysis

NATUS MEDICAL INC's gross profit margin for the second quarter of its fiscal year 2016 is essentially unchanged 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. NATUS MEDICAL INC is extremely liquid. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 2.45 which clearly shows the ability to cover any short-term cash needs. BABY managed to increase the liquidity from the same period a year ago, despite already having very strong liquidity to begin with. This would indicate improved cash flow.

During the same period, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has increased by 6.00% 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.
