Ratios you must know l.jpg
Ratios you MUST know

  • Profitability (ROCE).

  • Gearing

  • Liquidity (current and acid test ratios),

  • Financial efficiency (asset turnover, stock turnover, creditor and debtor days),

  • Shareholder ratios (dividend per share and dividend yield)


Which is better l.jpg
Which is better?

Company A has

£100,000 profit

Company B has

£1m profit

Which is the more successful company?


Which is better5 l.jpg
Which is better?

Company A has

£100,000 profit, where £200,000 was the capital invested

Company B has

£1m profit, where £10m was the capital invested

Which is the more successful company?


Which is better6 l.jpg
Which is better?

Company A has

£100,000 profit, where £200,000 was the capital invested

Company B has

£1m profit, where £10m was the capital invested

100,000/200,000 x100

= 50%

1m / 10m x100

= 10%

How can you use % calculation to see the differences?


Profitability ratios l.jpg
Profitability ratios

Gross Profit Margin *

Operating Margin *

ROCE

* Covered in AS BUSS2


This is one type of ratio l.jpg

This is one type of ratio!

… Known as ROCE

Return on Capital Employed


Profitability ratios9 l.jpg
Profitability Ratios

  • The ‘primary ratio….’

  • ROCE – return on capital employed

  • This tells us how efficient the company is by looking at their profits & comparing it to the funds invested in the business.

  • ROCE = Operating profit x 100

    Capital employed


Examples of roce 2007 l.jpg
Examples of ROCE (2007)

Which company do you think might be the most efficient at generating profits?

Remember to consider the reasons why?

Which company looks the more impressive just on raw profit figure?


Examples of roce 200711 l.jpg
Examples of ROCE (2007)

Which company looks the more impressive now?


Examples of roce 200712 l.jpg

Calculate the ROCE figure

Operating profit x100

Capital employed

Examples of ROCE (2007)


Examples of roce 200713 l.jpg
Examples of ROCE (2007)

For every £1 invested in the company, Burberry make 37p back in profits

Evaluating ROCE

Higher % is better

Watch for trend over time

ROCE

Watch out for low quality profit which boosts ROCE

Leased equipment will not be included in capital employed


Other profitability ratios l.jpg
Other profitability ratios…

  • At AS you looked at…

    • Gross profit margin

    • &

    • Net profit margin,

      and in A2 you will be given credit for looking at this profitability ratio again!


Gross profit margin l.jpg

Gross Profit Margin

Gross Profit Margin = Gross Profit x 100 = %

Turnover

Remember: Turnover = sales Gross Profit = Turnover – Cost of Sales

The Gross Profit margin ratio tells us the profit a business makes on its cost of sales or cost of goods sold. It is a very simple idea and it tells us how much gross profit per £1 of turnover the business is earning.

For example,

A 40% GPM means for every £1 sold 40p equates to gross profit

A 14% GPM means for every £1 sold 14p equates to gross profit

Gross Profit is the profit we earn before we take off any administration costs, selling costs and so on. So we should have a much higher gross profit margin than net profit margin.


Gross profit margin17 l.jpg
Gross Profit Margin

Here are a few examples of the gross profit margins from different businesses.

What does the Gross Profit Margin also tell us about the cost of sales?

The Gross Profit Margins may vary from business to business and industry to industry.

For example, the International Airline has a gross profit of 5.62% yet the Accounting Software business has 89.55%

If a company’s raw materials and factory wages go up a lot, the gross profit margin will go down unless the business increases its selling prices at the same time.


Net profit margin l.jpg
Net Profit Margin

Net Profit Margin = Net Profit x 100 = %

Turnover

Remember Net Profit = Gross Profit – overheads + income earnt

The Net profit margin ratio tells us of net profit per £1 of turnover. That is, after taking into account the cost of sales, administration costs, the selling and distribution costs, the net profit is the profit that is left, out of which they will pay interest, tax, dividends and so on.

Just like the gross profit margins, the net profit margins also vary from business to business and industry to industry. When we compare the gross and net margins we can gain a good impression of their non-production and non-direct costs such as administration, marketing and finance costs.

We saw that the International airline’s gross profit margin was the lowest of the 8 industries at 5.62% but its net profit margin is 4.05%, only a little bit lower. On the other hand, the discount airline gross profit margin is 27.46% but its net profit margin is 10.87% These comparisons give us a great insight into the cost structure of these businesses.

Compare Ryanair with BA management structures.


Comparing gross to net profit margins l.jpg
Comparing Gross to Net Profit Margins

So what’s happened to Manufacturing?

Look at the software business – a very high GPM of 89.55% but a NPM of 27.15% . This is still high, but we can see that the administrations costs are very high while the costs of sales are very low.

Ratio formula


Gearing another ratio l.jpg

Gearing – another ratio

A Liquidity ratio


Gearing l.jpg
Gearing

  • This tells us how much of the company’s finance is through debt!

  • A highly geared business is funded heavily through long term debts

  • A low geared business is funded mainly through its owners/shareholders.


Gearing25 l.jpg
Gearing

  • A company with 80% gearing….

  • has 80% of funds through long term debts and 20% through owners/shareholders.

  • A company with 35% gearing…

  • has 35% of funds through long term debts and 75% through owners/shareholders.

Which is in the better position?


Calculating gearing l.jpg
Calculating Gearing

Gearing = non current liabilities x 100

total equity & non current liabilities*

  • Aka capital employed

    So if a company has £280 in non current liabilities and £1,000 in capital employed

    Gearing = 280 x 100 = 22%

    1000+ 280


Slide27 l.jpg

Examples of Gearing (2007)

Which company looks the more impressive just on the figures?

Which is in the better position?

Why could the differences in dates be important?


Benefits of high gearing l.jpg
Benefits of high gearing

  • With low interest rates – highly geared companies benefit from cheap finance…. But when Interest rates go back up…

  • Relatively few shareholders – easier to keep control of the company.

  • Fewer shareholders could mean that the business has less dividend pressure, and could retain profit for future investments.


Benefits of low gearing l.jpg
Benefits of low gearing

  • Most of the capital is ‘permanent’ and does not have to be ‘repaid’ with interest!

  • Less risky where creditors can not force the business into liquidation (think Woolies!)

  • Easier to borrow more in the future if the company wants to expand.

Liquidity ratios l.jpg
Liquidity ratios

Assess whether a business has sufficient cash or equivalent current assets to be able to pay its debts as they fall due


Liquidity ratios32 l.jpg
Liquidity ratios.

  • What is liquidity?

  • Liquidity is an asset'sability to be easily converted through an act of buying or selling without causing a significant movement in the price and with minimum loss of value.

  • Money in the bank or cash on hand, is the most liquid asset.


Liquidity ratio l.jpg
Liquidity Ratio

  • These tell us how healthy the business is in the SHORT TERM

  • It tells us whether the working capital is sufficient to cover the immediate debts!

    • Current Ratio

    • Acid Test Ratio


Quick recap l.jpg
Quick recap…

  • What is the money owed to a business from customers called on the balance sheet?

    • Receivables (from debtors)

  • What are the other ‘current assets’?

    • Cash

    • Inventories (stock)


Current ratio l.jpg

Current Ratio

A liquidity ratio


Current ratio36 l.jpg
Current Ratio

Current Ratio = current assets : current liabilities

or

Current Ratio = Current assets

Currentliabilities

  • So what do you think a current ratio of 2:1 means?

  • The company has £2 of assets for every £1 of debt


Examples of current ratios l.jpg

Which company looks the more impressive just on the figures?

Examples of Current ratios

Calculate their Current Assets ratio…

= current assets / current liabilities

Written as ? : 1


Examples of current ratios38 l.jpg
Examples of Current ratios

Should Tesco & BA panic about a ‘liquidity’ of <1?


What can they do to improve current ratio l.jpg
What can they do to improve Current ratio?

  • Sell under used non current assets – but is this really wise?) BA is grounding 22 planes this winter!

  • Raising more share capital (what the banks have done!)

  • Increase long term borrowing! (OK when IR’s are soo low!)

  • Postpone planned investments – eg Stelios disagreement over Easyjet!


Good video link l.jpg
Good video link

  • http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/8178474.stm

  • About BA & how ‘well it’s positioned’ to survive the current crisis – looks at reducing CA, increasing N-CL & gearing all in one clip!


Acid test ratio l.jpg

Acid Test Ratio

A liquidity ratio


Acid test ratio42 l.jpg
Acid Test Ratio

  • This ratio looks at comparing assets with liabilities BUT with removing stock figures

  • ACID TEST RATIO

  • =(current assets – inventories) : Current liabilities

    Or

  • ACID TEST RATIO = Current assets – inventories

    Current liabilities


Why remove the inventories l.jpg
Why remove the inventories?

  • Stock is THE MOST illiquid asset of the business

  • It can take a long time to convert inventories (stock) into cash

  • It can ‘depreciate’ if sold as 2nd hand rather than ‘produced’ into final product.


Acid test ratio44 l.jpg
Acid Test Ratio

  • So another way of calculating the Acid Test Ratio

    = Cash & receivable (debtors)

    Current liabilities

  • So what would an Acid Test Ratio of 1.5:1 mean?

  • The company has £1.50 worth of liquid assets to every £1 of debt!

  • The ideal situation is an Acid Test ratio of 1:1


Quick q l.jpg
Quick Q

  • If Tesco has a current ratio of 0.61:1, what do you think their Acid Test Ratio will be?

  • Will it be higher or lower than this?



Slide47 l.jpg

Examples of Acid Test ratios

Much lower due to having so much stock!


Why is 1 1 ideal l.jpg
Why is 1:1 ideal?

  • Why is the acid test ideal 1:1?

  • If a company has a ratio of 2:1 – what does this mean?

  • Why is that not the most efficient use of its liquidity?

  • If a company has a ratio of 0.1 : 1 – what does this mean?

  • What does this suggest about the company’s financial strength?

Asset turnover

Stock turnover

Asset turnover l.jpg
Asset Turnover

  • This tells us how well the company uses all it’s assets to generate its sales

    Asset turnover = Revenue (sales turnover)

    Net assets*

    * where net assets are Total Assets -Total liabilities

    * this is also the total equity figure at the bottom of the balance sheet.


Examples of asset turnover l.jpg
Examples of Asset turnover

  • It’s very difficult to compare different industries

  • This is a ratio that definitely to be used benchmarking inter-firm comparison or over a period of time with the same firm.

  • For example,

  • Tesco will have a high asset turnover – ‘pile them high & sell them cheap’. Meanwhile, Harrods would have a low asset turnover of lower quantity sales but with a high profit margin!



Stock turnover55 l.jpg

This tells us the number of times a business will sell & replace its stock.

A fishmonger should have a HIGH stock turnover of 365 times – as it gets fresh fish delivered every day of the year!

Where as a second hand car dealer may have a stock turnover of 12 times – which is selling & replacing its cars on the forecourt once a month!

Stock Turnover


Calculating stock turnover l.jpg
Calculating Stock Turnover replace its stock.

Stock Turnover = Cost of goods sold

Average stock held

  • List three business that would have a high stock turnover and three that would have a low figure for stock turnover.

  • A bread shop has an opening stock of £5 000 at the start of the financial year and at the end of the year its stock is £6 000.

    The cost of sales for the shop is £55 000.

    Calculate its stock turnover.


Factors that influence rate of stock turnover l.jpg
Factors that influence rate of stock turnover replace its stock.

  • Nature of the product – perishable, antiques

  • Importance of holding stock – in large or smaller quantities – imagine going into M&S with empty shelves! High street stores need large quantities of stock.

  • The length of the product life cycle

  • Stock management systems

  • Variety of products being held.


Debtor creditor days l.jpg

Debtor & Creditor days replace its stock.


Debtor days l.jpg
Debtor Days replace its stock.

  • Debtors are known as receivables

    Debtor days = receivables x 365

    revenue

  • This tells us how much credit the company gives to its customers.

  • Sofa companies often give ‘buy now pay later options’ – whereas at the local petrol station I have to pay immediately!


Creditor days l.jpg
Creditor Days replace its stock.

  • Creditors are known as payables

    Creditor days = payables x 365

    revenue

  • This tells us how long the company takes to pay back the money it owes to its suppliers.

  • Delaying payment for as long as possible can help the business!

  • BUT – can cause problems with suppliers in future!

  • BUT – can incur interest charges (Late Payment Act 1998!)

DPS = Total dividends

Number of shares issued

  • Answer is expressed as number of pence per share

  • In 2008 M&S anounced dividends of £343.6m for 1,586.48m shares 21.65p per share.

  • Obviously the higher the dividend the better for shareholders! The lower the dividend per share might mean that the company is retaining profit for investments!


Dividend yield l.jpg
Dividend Yield replace its stock.

Dividend Yield = Dividend per share x 100

Market price of share

  • So using the M&S calculation previously, if the share price was 220p on one day… the Dividend yield would be 21.65/220 x 100 = 9.48%

  • You would need to compare this figure with past figures & can vary greatly with fluctuations in the stock market!
