Financial Analysis

STARTEK INC'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 grown, and although the growth in revenues has outpaced the average competitor within the industry, the net income growth has not. STARTEK INC has average liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 1.02 which shows that technically this company has the ability to cover short-term cash needs. The company's liquidity has decreased from the same period last year.

During the same period, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has decreased by 17.75% from the same quarter last year. Together, the key liquidity measurements indicate that it is relatively unlikely that the company will face financial difficulties in the near future.
