Financial Analysis

SAMSON OIL & GAS LTD's gross profit margin for the third quarter of its fiscal year 2017 has significantly decreased when compared to the same period a year ago. The company grew its sales and net income significantly quarter versus same quarter a year prior, and was able to outpace the average competitor in the industry when comparing revenue growth, but not when comparing net income growth. SAMSON OIL & GAS LTD has very weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.12 which clearly 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 greatly increased by 297.93% from the same quarter last year. The key liquidity measurements indicate that the company is in a position in which financial difficulties could develop in the near future.
