ELLI Health

 How is Ellie Mae's financial health and their level of debt?

A company's financial position is much like your own financial position, it includes everything you own (assets) and owe (liabilities).

The boxes below represent the relative size of what makes up Ellie Mae's finances.

The net worth of a company is the difference between its assets and liabilities.
Net Worth

  • Ellie Mae's cash and other short term assets cover its long term commitments.

This treemap shows a more detailed breakdown of Ellie Mae's finances. If any of them are yellow this indicates they may be out of proportion and red means they relate to one of the checks below.
Assets

The graphic below shows equity (available funds) and debt, we ideally want to see the red area (debt) decreasing.

If there is any debt we look at the companies capability to repay it, and whether the level has increased over the past 5 years.
