Financial Analysis

BROADSOFT INC's gross profit margin for the first quarter of its fiscal year 2017 is essentially unchanged when compared to the same period a year ago. Even though sales increased, the net income has decreased, representing a decrease to the bottom line. BROADSOFT INC is extremely liquid. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 3.14 which clearly shows the ability to cover any short-term cash needs. BSFT 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 20.38% 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.

HOLD. The current P/E ratio is negative, which has no meaningful value in the assessment of premium or discount valuation, it simply displays that the company has negative earnings. Conducting a second comparison, its price-to-book ratio of 4.13 indicates a premium versus the S&P 500 average of 3.09 and a significant discount versus the industry average of 9.04. The price-to-sales ratio is well above the S&P 500 average, but well below the industry average. After reviewing these and other key valuation criteria, BROADSOFT INC proves to trade at a discount to investment alternatives within the industry.
