Flawless balance sheet with solid track record

IRI delivered a satisfying double-digit returns of 33% in the most recent year Unsurprisingly, IRI surpassed the Software industry return of 18%, which gives us more confidence of the company's capacity to drive earnings going forward. IRI's ability to maintain an adequate level of cash to meet upcoming liabilities is a good sign for its financial health. This indicates that IRI has sufficient cash flows and proper cash management in place, which is a key determinant of the company’s health. IRI 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. 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.
