Copart IncFind Ratings Reports
COPART INC's gross profit margin for the third quarter of its fiscal year 2017 is essentially unchanged when compared to the same period a year ago. The company has grown its sales and net income during the past quarter when compared with the same quarter a year ago, and although its growth in net income has outpaced the industry average, its revenue growth has not. COPART INC is extremely liquid. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 2.41 which clearly shows the ability to cover any short-term cash needs. The company managed to increase its liquidity from the same period a year ago, despite already having strong liquidity to begin with. This would indicate improved cash flow.
At the same time, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has greatly increased by 40.44% 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.
