  1. It’s important to point out on a GAAP basis they earned $.01 per share. More interesting than that is their current ratio dipped slightly below 1. Think about this like your house, if your debt repayment for the next 12 months exceed what you have in savings you have a current ratio less than 1.

    More interesting is that they didn’t take a writedown on NantHealth or if they did it was small despite market conditions not favoring an IPO. There business is also shifting from software to services. It’s hard to imagine how they got profitability up in that transition, but more importantly how sustainable that kind of move is going to be for them. Showing an increasing backlog of work is also interesting. Hopefully others know a lot of people buying Allscripts services.
