Financial Analysis

BIGLARI HOLDINGS INC's gross profit margin for the third quarter of its fiscal year 2017 has decreased when compared to the same period a year ago. Even though sales decreased, the net income has increased. BIGLARI HOLDINGS INC has weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.74 which shows a lack of ability to cover short-term cash needs. The liquidity decreased from the same period a year ago, despite already having weak liquidity to begin with. This would indicate deteriorating cash flow.

During the same period, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has increased by 10.94% from the same quarter last year. Overall, the key liquidity measurements indicate that the company is in a position in which financial difficulties could develop in the future.
