Market Share Versus Profits

Revenues History
Earnings History

Compared to the same period last year, ANGO-US‘s change in revenue was close to the amount of its change in earnings. It remains to be seen how the rest of its peer group’s results will turn out and if ANGO-US‘s performance is a sign of any major shift in the composition of market share in this sector. Also, for comparison purposes, revenues changed by -3.85% and earnings by -78.98% compared to the previous period.

Earnings Growth Analysis

The company’s earnings growth was influenced by year-on-year improvement in gross margins from 44.38% to 46.06% as well as better cost controls. As a result, operating margins (EBITDA margins) rose from 14.58% to 15.40% compared to the same period last year. For comparison, gross margins were 45.74% and EBITDA margins were 15.31% in the last reporting period.

Gross Margin Trend

Companies sometimes sacrifice improvements in revenues and margins in order to extend friendlier terms to customers and vendors. Capital Cube probes for such activity by comparing the changes in gross margins with any changes in working capital. If the gross margins improved without a worsening of working capital, it is possible that the company’s performance is a result of truly delivering in the marketplace and not simply an accounting prop-up using the balance sheet.

Gross Margin History
Working Capital Days History

ANGO-US‘s gross margin improvement has not produced any big difference in its working capital. Working capital days are currently 101.77, compared to last year’s level of 93.81 days. This leads Capital Cube to conclude that the improvements in gross margins are likely from operating decisions and not trade-offs with the balance sheet.

Cash Versus Earnings – Sustainable Performance?

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

ANGO-US‘s year-on-year change in operating cash flow of 15.90% is around its change in earnings. This suggests that there are likely no significant movement in accruals or reserves for managing earnings this period.

Margins

The company’s earnings growth has also been influenced by the following factors: (1) Improvements in operating (EBIT) margins from 6.55% to 8.19% and (2) one-time items. The company’s pretax margins are now 5.32% compared to 1.16% for the same period last year.
