Phileo,

good analysis.!!

You did miss one thing. They should get another 2-3 points for shares outstanding. You forgot to account for the split last year which is why the shares outstanding doubled. This may be a flaw with teh RM spreadsheet but you can work around it by adjusting for the split in the year prior numbers I suspect. So, now the score is more like 46 (or so).

To add some analysis they lose most points on the flow ratio, of those points available. This occurs because despite low current assets, current liabilities (and no debt, good!) are even lower. They need to work on, effectively, delaying payment. They appear to collect quickly (low A/R) but also pay out quickly. As they become more dominant in their industry areas they should be able to "work" their suppliers etc more to get better payment terms and improve that flow ratio. That would be enough to get them over the 50 point barrier from todays location as shown in your analysis.

Just fyi, great job.. cheers,

jgc
