Financial Analysis

GLOBAL PARTNERS LP's gross profit margin for the first quarter of its fiscal year 2017 has decreased when compared to the same period a year ago. Even though it increased sales and net income significantly, the company was unable to grow at a faster pace than its industry competitors. GLOBAL PARTNERS LP has weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.60 which shows a lack of ability to cover short-term cash needs. The company's liquidity has decreased from the same period last year.

At the same time, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has significantly decreased by 36.06% from the same quarter last year. Overall, the key liquidity measurements indicate that the company is in a position in which financial difficulties could develop in the future.
