Outstanding track record with flawless balance sheet

Over the past year, SYZ has grown its earnings by 42%, with its most recent figure exceeding its annual average over the past five years. The strong earnings growth is reflected in impressive double-digit 30% return to shareholders, which is an optimistic signal for the future. SYZ's ability to maintain an adequate level of cash to meet upcoming liabilities is a good sign for its financial health. This indicates that SYZ has sufficient cash flows and proper cash management in place, which is an important determinant of the company’s health. SYZ currently has no debt on its balance sheet. It has only utilized funding from its equity capital to run the business, which is typically normal for a small-cap company. Investors’ risk associated with debt is virtually non-existent and the company has plenty of headroom to grow debt in the future, should the need arise.
