Gage Roads Brewing Co. Limited (ASX:GRB): A Fundamentally Attractive Investment

Simply Wall St

Gage Roads Brewing Co. Limited (ASX:GRB) is a company with exceptional fundamental characteristics. Upon building up an investment case for a stock, we should look at various aspects. In the case of GRB, it is a company with robust financial health as well as an optimistic future outlook. Below, I've touched on some key aspects you should know on a high level. For those interested in digging a bit deeper into my commentary, take a look at the report on Gage Roads Brewing here.

Flawless balance sheet with reasonable growth potential

One reason why investors are attracted to GRB is its earnings growth potential in the near future of 48%, made up of high-quality, operational cash from its core business, which is expected to more than double over the next year. This indicates a high-quality bottom-line expansion, as opposed to those driven by unsustainable cost-cutting activities. GRB's strong financial health means that all of its upcoming liability payments are able to be met by its current cash and short-term investment holdings. This suggests prudent control over cash and cost by management, which is an important determinant of the company’s health. GRB currently has no debt on its balance sheet. This means it is running its business only on equity capital funding, which is typically normal for a small-cap company. Therefore the company has plenty of headroom to grow, and the ability to raise debt should it need to in the future.
