Does IMMU produce enough cash relative to debt?

IMMU’s debt level has been constant at around US$20m over the previous year – this includes long-term debt. At this constant level of debt, IMMU’s cash and short-term investments stands at US$586m for investing into the business. Moving onto cash from operations, its trivial cash flows from operations make the cash-to-debt ratio less useful to us, though these low levels of cash means that operational efficiency is worth a look. For this article’s sake, I won’t be looking at this today, but you can assess some of IMMU’s operating efficiency ratios such as ROA here .

Does IMMU’s liquid assets cover its short-term commitments?

At the current liabilities level of US$44m, the company has been able to meet these commitments with a current assets level of US$594m, leading to a 13.45x current account ratio. Having said that, many consider a ratio above 3x to be high.

Can IMMU service its debt comfortably?

With debt at 5.8% of equity, IMMU may be thought of as having low leverage. IMMU is not taking on too much debt commitment, which may be constraining for future growth. Risk around debt is extremely low for IMMU, and the company also has the ability and headroom to increase debt if needed going forward.

Next Steps:

Although IMMU’s debt level is relatively low, its cash flow levels still could not copiously cover its borrowings. This may indicate room for improvement in terms of its operating efficiency. However, the company exhibits an ability to meet its near term obligations should an adverse event occur. I admit this is a fairly basic analysis for IMMU’s financial health.
