I don’t think so. AR and DSO look healthy. For the last fully reported fiscal quarter, Virgin Media Inc. (NASDAQ:VMED)’s year-over-year revenue grew 3.6%, and its AR grew 0.6%. That looks OK. End-of-quarter DSO decreased 3.9% from the prior-year quarter. It was down 5.9% versus the prior quarter. Still, I’m no fortuneteller, and these are just numbers. Investors putting their money on the line always need to dig into the filings for the root causes and draw their own conclusions.
