Financial Analysis

TRONOX LTD's gross profit margin for the fourth quarter of its fiscal year 2016 has decreased when compared to the same period a year ago. The company has grown sales and net income during the past quarter when compared with the same quarter a year ago, however, it was unable to keep up with the growth of the average competitor within its industry. TRONOX LTD has average liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 1.29 which shows that technically this company has the 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 1.90% 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.
