GuruFocus gives the company a financial strength rating of 3 out of 10 and there is currently a severe warning sign issued for poor financial strength. While the company’s cash-to-debt ratio of 66.28 ranks better than 78.53% of industry competitors, the company has seen increasingly negative cash flows over the last year. Its return on invested capital has also become increasingly negative, suggesting capital efficiency issues.
