TheStreetRatings.com Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings rates Interface 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, expanding profit margins, good cash flow from operations and increase in net income. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had somewhat disappointing return on equity.

Highlights from the ratings report include:
  • TILE's revenue growth has slightly outpaced the industry average of 1.2%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues slightly increased by 8.2%. Growth in the company's revenue appears to have helped boost the earnings per share.
  • The debt-to-equity ratio is somewhat low, currently at 0.88, and is less than that of the industry average, implying that there has been a relatively successful effort in the management of debt levels. Along with the favorable debt-to-equity ratio, the company maintains an adequate quick ratio of 1.35, which illustrates the ability to avoid short-term cash problems.
  • 39.35% is the gross profit margin for INTERFACE INC which we consider to be strong. It has increased from the same quarter the previous year. Along with this, the net profit margin of 5.20% is above that of the industry average.
  • Net operating cash flow has significantly increased by 962.85% to $22.09 million when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, INTERFACE INC has also vastly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of -10.61%.
  • The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has significantly exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the Commercial Services & Supplies industry. The net income increased by 206.1% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, rising from $4.03 million to $12.32 million.
