Financial Analysis


TERNIUM SA -ADR's gross profit margin for the fourth quarter of its fiscal year 2016 has increased 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. TERNIUM SA -ADR has weak liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 0.56 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 8.88% 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.
