Financial Analysis

CEDAR FAIR -LP's gross profit margin for the first quarter of its fiscal year 2016 has significantly increased when compared to the same period a year ago. Sales and net income have grown, and although the growth in revenues has outpaced the average competitor within the industry, the net income growth has not. CEDAR FAIR -LP has very weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.37 which clearly shows a lack of ability to cover short-term cash needs. The company's liquidity has increased from the same period last year.

At the same time, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has significantly decreased by 97.27% 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.
