LIFE STORAGE Management Efficiency

LIFE STORAGE INC has Return on Asset of 5.6588 % which means that on every $100 spent on asset, it made $5.6588 of profit. This is considered to be average in the sector. LIFE STORAGE management efficiency ratios could be used to measure how well the company manages its routine affairs as well as how well it operates its assets and liabilities.
The company has 827.64 M in debt with debt to equity (D/E) ratio of 0.62, which is OK given its current industry classification. LIFE STORAGE INC has a current ratio of 0.37, suggesting that it has not enough short term capital to pay financial commitments when the payables are due. Debt can assist LIFE STORAGE until it has trouble settling it off, either with new capital or with free cash flow. So, LIFE STORAGE's shareholders could walk away with nothing if the company can't fulfill its legal obligations to repay debt. However, a more frequent occurrence is when companies like LIFE STORAGE INC sell additional shares at bargain prices, diluting existing shareholders. Debt, in this case, can be an excellent and much better tool for LIFE STORAGE to invest in growth at high rates of return. When we think about LIFE STORAGE's use of debt, we should always consider it together with cash and equity.
