Financial Analysis


SPARTANNASH CO's gross profit margin for the first quarter of its fiscal year 2016 is essentially unchanged when compared to the same period a year ago. Sales and net income have dropped, although the growth in revenues underperformed the average competitor within the industry, the net income growth did not. SPARTANNASH CO has weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.74 which 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 remained virtually unchanged only increasing by 4.60% 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.
