Financial Analysis


SPARTANNASH CO's gross profit margin for the first quarter of its fiscal year 2017 is essentially unchanged when compared to the same period a year ago. 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. 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 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 increased by 6.31% 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.
