Financial Analysis

PRIMERO MINING CORP's gross profit margin for the third quarter of its fiscal year 2016 has significantly decreased when compared to the same period a year ago. Sales and net income fell significantly, but still managed to outperform when compared to the average company in its industry. PRIMERO MINING CORP has weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.70 which shows a lack of ability to cover short-term cash needs. The liquidity decreased from the same period a year ago, despite already having weak liquidity to begin with. This would indicate deteriorating cash flow.

During the same period, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has decreased by 12.89% 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.
