(NASDAQ:ICUI) due to its excellent fundamentals in more than one area. ICUI is a company with great financial health as well as a an impressive track record of performance. In the following section, I expand a bit more on these key aspects. For those interested in digger a bit deeper into my commentary, take a look at the report on ICU Medical here.
Excellent balance sheet with proven track record
ICUI delivered a triple-digit bottom-line expansion over the past couple of years, with its most recent earnings level surpassing its average level over the last five years. In addition to beating its historical values, ICUI also outperformed its industry, which delivered a growth of 30%. This is an optimistic signal for the future. ICUI’s ability to maintain an adequate level of cash to meet upcoming liabilities is a good sign for its financial health. This implies that ICUI manages its cash and cost levels well, which is a key determinant of the company’s health. ICUI appears to have made good use of debt, producing operating cash levels of 101x total debt in the prior year. This is a strong indication that debt is reasonably met with cash generated.
