TheStreetRatings.com Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings rates Genpact as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, reasonable valuation levels, compelling growth in net income and good cash flow from operations. Although the company may harbor some minor weaknesses, we feel they are unlikely to have a significant impact on results.

Highlights from the ratings report include:
  • The revenue growth came in higher than the industry average of 20.5%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 8.9%. Growth in the company's revenue appears to have helped boost the earnings per share.
  • The current debt-to-equity ratio, 0.55, is low and is below the industry average, implying that there has been successful management of debt levels. To add to this, G has a quick ratio of 1.99, which demonstrates the ability of the company to cover short-term liquidity needs.
  • The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has significantly exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the IT Services industry. The net income increased by 179.1% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from $25.18 million to $70.26 million.
  • Net operating cash flow has significantly increased by 62.19% to $125.54 million when compared to the same quarter last year. The firm also exceeded the industry average cash flow growth rate of 21.03%.
