Financial Analysis

MEI PHARMA INC's gross profit margin for the fourth quarter of its fiscal year 2017 has significantly 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. MEI PHARMA INC is extremely liquid. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 11.01 which clearly shows the ability to cover any short-term cash needs. MEIP managed to increase the liquidity from the same period a year ago, despite already having very strong liquidity to begin with. This would indicate improved cash flow.

During the same period, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has increased by 22.05% 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.
