- GLPW's revenue growth has slightly outpaced the industry average of 6.5%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 11.7%. This growth in revenue does not appear to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, displayed by a decline in earnings per share.
- GLPW has no debt to speak of therefore resulting in a debt-to-equity ratio of zero, which we consider to be a relatively favorable sign. Along with this, the company maintains a quick ratio of 2.59, which clearly demonstrates the ability to cover short-term cash needs.
- Return on equity has greatly decreased when compared to its ROE from the same quarter one year prior. This is a signal of major weakness within the corporation. In comparison to the other companies in the Electrical Equipment industry and the overall market, GLOBAL POWER EQUIPMENT GROUP's return on equity is significantly below that of the industry average and is below that of the S&P 500.
- The gross profit margin for GLOBAL POWER EQUIPMENT GROUP is currently extremely low, coming in at 14.00%. It has decreased from the same quarter the previous year. Along with this, the net profit margin of -1.06% trails that of the industry average.
