Financial Analysis


BOX INC's gross profit margin for the first quarter of its fiscal year 2016 has decreased when compared to the same period a year ago. The company grew its sales and net income significantly quarter versus same quarter a year prior, and was able to outpace the average competitor in the industry when comparing revenue growth, but not when comparing net income growth. BOX INC has average liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 1.21 which shows that technically this company has the 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 47.36% from the same quarter last year. Together, the key liquidity measurements indicate that it is relatively unlikely that the company will face financial difficulties in the near future.
