Outstanding track record with flawless balance sheet

One reason why investors are attracted to PAYS is its notable earnings growth potential in the near future of 40%. The optimistic bottom-line growth is supported by a similarly outstanding revenue growth over the same time period, which indicates that earnings is driven by top-line activity rather than purely unsustainable cost-reduction initiatives. PAYS delivered a bottom-line expansion of 86% in the prior year, with its most recent earnings level surpassing its average level over the last five years. The strong earnings growth is reflected in impressive double-digit 32% return to shareholders, which paints a buoyant picture for the company.

PAYS is financially robust, with ample cash on hand and short-term investments to meet upcoming liabilities. This implies that PAYS manages its cash and cost levels well, which is a key determinant of the company’s health. Investors should not worry about PAYS’s debt levels because the company has none! It has only utilized funding from its equity capital to run the business, which is typically normal for a small-cap company. PAYS has plenty of financial flexibility, without debt obligations to meet in the short term, as well as the headroom to raise debt should it need to in the future.
