Cash Versus Earnings – Sustainable Performance?

It is important to examine a company�s cash versus earnings numbers to gauge whether its performance is sustainable.

ALARF-US‘s year-on-year change in operating cash flow of 10.50% is around its change in earnings. This suggests that there are likely no significant movement in accruals or reserves for managing earnings this period.


The company’s earnings fell, largely because of the narrowing in operating margins, which decreased from 89.04% to 80.89%. The decline in earnings probably would have been worse, were it not for some one-time items that improved pretax margins from 57.32% to 70.53%.
