Financial Analysis

Sales and net income have dropped, although the growth in net income underperformed the average competitor within the industry, the revenue growth did not. CHEMTURA CORP has average liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 1.22 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, indicating deteriorating cash flow.

During the same period, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has increased by 5.11% 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.
