In It's Earnings That Count Hewitt Heiserman wrote a chapter about his "five minute test, here it is for Cohesant:


Criteria Benchmark COHT Notes
1 Auditor's Opinion Clean opinion Pass

2 Lawsuits No material lawsuits Pass (Conditionally)

3 Unusual Losses No more than one in last three years Pass

4 Earnings Restatements No earnings restatements Pass

5 Intangible Assets Ratio Intangibles less than 20% of total assets Pass

6 Debt to Equity Ratio Less than 75% Pass

7 Revenue Growth At least 30% over the last five years Fail Revenue Growth from the past five years was only 22%

8 Stock Based Compensation Ratio Less than 15% Pass

I'm not really sure if this is going to format right, if it doesn't does anyone know hoe to make it firmat correctly?

I hope this helps
