The company managed to grow both sales and net income at a faster pace than the average competitor in its industry this quarter as compared to the same quarter a year ago. SHAW COMMUNICATIONS INC has very weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.35 which clearly shows a lack of ability to cover short-term cash needs. The company's liquidity has decreased from the same period last year.
