Exceptional growth potential with flawless balance sheet

One reason why investors are attracted to PAGS is its notable earnings growth potential in the near future of 25%. Earnings growth is paired with an eye-catching top-line trajectory also doubling over the same period, which indicates a high-quality bottom-line expansion, as opposed to those driven by unsustainable cost-cutting activities. PAGS is financially robust, with ample cash on hand and short-term investments to meet upcoming liabilities. This indicates that PAGS has sufficient cash flows and proper cash management in place, which is a crucial insight into the health of the company. PAGS currently has no debt on its balance sheet. This means it is running its business only on equity capital funding, which is rather impressive for a US$14b market cap company. PAGS 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.
