Financial Analysis


FINISH LINE INC's gross profit margin for the third quarter of its fiscal year 2016 has increased 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. FINISH LINE INC has very weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.25 which clearly shows a lack of ability to cover short-term cash needs. The company's liquidity decreased from the same period a year ago, despite already having very weak liquidity to begin with. This would indicate deteriorating cash flow.

During the same period, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has decreased by 16.48% from the same quarter last year. The key liquidity measurements indicate that the company is in a position in which financial difficulties could develop in the near future.
