A level is needed by which to judge a company’s performance.

This level can be obtained by comparing companies with in the same industries with other companies.

This is known as a cross-sectional study.

To compare the accounts of one company with its own previous years. Possible to see if a company is improving in certain areas or not. This is known as a Time series study.

This involves comparing the ratios of one firm with those of similar firms or with industry averages.

Or

To compare the ratios of one firm with those of similar firms or with industry averages at the same point in time is called External Comparisons.

Similarity is important as one should compare “apples to apples.”

Example: to compare the ratios of MIHE and RIHE

- As Percentage: such as 25% or 50%. For example if net profit is Rs.25,000/- and the sales is Rs.1,00,000/- then the net profit can be said to be 25% of the sales.
- As Proportion: The above figures may be expressed in terms of the relationship between net profit to sales as 1 : 4.
- As Pure Number /Times: The same can also be expressed in an alternatively way such as the sale is 4 times of the net profit or profit is 1/4th of the sales.

Liquidity Ratio

Ratio’s that measure a firm’s ability to meet short term obligations.

Or

It shows that Can we make required payments?

Balance Sheet Ratios

Liquidity Ratios

- Liquidity ratios are used to measure a firm ability to meet short term obligations.
- They compare short term obligations with short term (or current) resources available to meet these obligations.

- Current Ratio
- Acid test (quick) Ratio

Balance Sheet Ratios

Liquidity Ratios

Shows a firm’s ability to cover its current liabilities with its current assets.

Or

It is the relationship between the current assets and current liabilities of a firm.

Current Assets

Current Liabilities

For AlkozaiDecember 31, 2009

If

Current Assets = $1,195

and

Current Liabilities = $500

Balance Sheet Ratios

Liquidity Ratios

$1,195

$500

= 2.39

- Looks at the ratio between Current Assets and Current Liabilities
- A ratio of 2.39 would mean the firm has $2.39 of current assets to cover every $1 in current liabilities
- Too high – Might suggest that too much of its assets are tied up in unproductive activities – too much stock, for example?
- Too low - risk of not being able to pay Current liabilities.

Shows a firm’s ability to meet current liabilities with its most liquid assets.

Or

It is the ratio between Quick Current Assets and Current Liabilities.

Balance Sheet Ratios

Acid test (quick) Ratio

Acid-Test (Quick)

Current Assets - Inv

Current Liabilities

For AlkozaiDecember 31, 2009

If

Current Assets = $1,195

and

Current Liabilities = $500

Inventory = $696

Balance Sheet Ratios

Liquidity Ratios

$1,195 - $696

$500

= 1.00

- The Inventory takes to much time to convert into cash, so a more realistic ratio is to ignore Inventory.
- A ratio of 1 would means that the firm has $1 of cash to cover every $1 in current liabilities.
- Again if it is too high means that the business is very liquid, may be able to use the cash for other activities to increase performance.
- If it is too low then the business may face problems in payment of current liabilities.
