Financial Analysis


WABASH NATIONAL CORP's gross profit margin for the fourth quarter of its fiscal year 2016 is essentially unchanged when compared to the same period a year ago. Sales and net income have dropped, although the growth in revenues underperformed the average competitor within the industry, the net income growth did not. WABASH NATIONAL CORP has strong liquidity. Currently, the Quick Ratio is 1.90 which shows the ability to cover short-term cash needs. The company managed to increase its liquidity from the same period a year ago, despite already having strong liquidity to begin with. This would indicate improved cash flow.

During the same period, stockholders' equity ("net worth") has increased by 7.40% from the same quarter last year. The key liquidity measurements indicate that the company is unlikely to face financial difficulties in the near future.
