Financial Analysis


EDGEWATER TECHNOLOGY INC's gross profit margin for the fourth quarter of its fiscal year 2016 has increased when compared to the same period a year ago. The company has grown sales and net income during the past quarter when compared with the same quarter a year ago, however, it was unable to keep up with the growth of the average competitor within its industry. EDGEWATER TECHNOLOGY INC has strong liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 1.89 which shows the ability to cover 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 remained virtually unchanged only increasing by 3.25% from the same quarter last year. The key liquidity measurements indicate that the company is unlikely to face financial difficulties in the near future.
