Financial data source and analysis principles

The above is a comparative analysis of the financial position and performance of the company. The comparison is based on official financial statements filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) through the Electronic Data Gathering, Analysis, and Retrieval system (EDGAR) (about 10,000 largest publicly traded companies). The comparison is performed using the eleven key financial ratios (see table above). Company's financial ratios are compared with the median values of ratios of all companies and of companies within the same industry, and also with the quartiles of those ratios. Each ratio value is given a score ranging from -2 and +2 depending on its position relative to the quartiles (-2 – below the first quartile; -1 – between the first and the second quartile; +1 – between the second and the third quartile; +2 – above the third quartile; 0 – the ratio value deviates from the median by no more than 5% of the difference between the median and the quartile closest to the ratio value). To draw a conclusion from the analysis the individual scores are weighted equally to get an overall score ranging from -2 and +2.

 much better (+1 - +2incl) better (from 0.11 to +1incl) about the same (from -0.11incl to +0.11incl) worse (from -1incl to -0.11) much worse (from -2incl to -1)

 improved considerably (positive change of more than 1 point) improved (positive change of less than 1 point) unchanged (little or no change in score, no more than 0.11 points) deteriorated (the score has decreased by less than 1 point during the year) deteriorated considerably (the score has decreased by more than 1 point during the year)
