This paper deals with the evaluation of the financial performance and financial position of IT companies in the consolidated group. The sub­ject of the investigation is a consolidated group consisting of a parent com­pany domiciled in Germany and its subsidiary in Slovakia. The article aims to point out the mutual relations within the consolidated group through correlation coefficients. The examined relations are in the area of profitabil­ity, indebtedness, liquidity and some macroeconomic indicators. The paper set out two objectives of the research: 1) within the consolidated group, the mutual relations between the parent company and the subsidiary are not significant; 2) within the consolidated group, the mutual relations between the parent company and the subsidiary are significant. Interesting conclu­sions emerged from the comparison of correlation coefficients.
