  • The company is somewhat indebted, loan repayment needs to be taken into account. It looks mediocre against similar enterprises.
  • Considering the past twelve months, traditional Price-to-Earnings relation is huge, as profits were extremely low in relative terms. It ranks substantially worse when measured against peer companies.
