In the previous year, PHIA has ramped up its bottom line by 67%, with its latest earnings level surpassing its average level over the last five years. Not only did PHIA outperformed its past performance, its growth also exceeded the Medical Equipment industry expansion, which generated a 7.8% earnings growth. This is what investors like to see! PHIA'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 indicates that PHIA has sufficient cash flows and proper cash management in place, which is an important determinant of the company’s health. PHIA appears to have made good use of debt, producing operating cash levels of 0.37x total debt in the prior year. This is a strong indication that debt is reasonably met with cash generated.
