Seek Limited (SEK) has ended the 2013 financial year with more than $184 million cash in bank, improving the quality of its balance sheet and lifting its Skaffold Quality Score from B to A. Unfortunately the increase in total shareholders equity, coupled with higher debt, did not result in a material uplift in NPAT and SEK’s return on equity fell from close to 40% in 2012 to 24%, as at 30 June 2013.
