RATIO ANALYSISRatio-analysis is a concept or techniquewhich is as old as accounting concept.Financial analysis is a scientific tool. It hasassumed important role as a tool forappraising the real worth of an enterprise, itsperformance during a period of time and itspit falls. Financial analysis is a vital apparatusfor the interpretation of financial statements. Italso helps to find out any cross-sectional andtime series linkages between various ratios.
RATIO ANALYSISUnlike in the past when security was considered tobe sufficient consideration for banks and financialinstitutions to grant loans and advances, nowadaysthe entire lending is need-based and the emphasis ison the financial viability of a proposal and not onlyon security alone. Further all business decisioncontains an element of risk. The risk is more in thecase of decisions relating to credits. Ratio analysisand other quantitative techniques facilitateassessment of this risk.
RATIO ANALYSISRatio-analysis means the process ofcomputing, determining and presenting therelationship of related items and groups ofitems of the financial statements. Theyprovide in a summarized and concise formof fairly good idea about the financialposition of a unit. They are important toolsfor financial analysis.
Lenders’ need it for carrying out the followingTechnical AppraisalCommercial AppraisalFinancial AppraisalEconomic AppraisalManagement Appraisal
It’s a tool which enables the banker or lender toarrive at the following factors :Liquidity positionProfitabilitySolvencyFinancial StabilityQuality of the ManagementSafety & Security of the loans & advances to be oralready been provided
Before looking at the ratios there are a number of cautionarypoints concerning their use that need to be identified :c.The dates and duration of the financial statements beingcompared should be the same. If not, the effects ofseasonality may cause erroneous conclusions to be drawn.e.The accounts to be compared should have been preparedon the same bases. Different treatment of stocks ordepreciations or asset valuations will distort the results.g.In order to judge the overall performance of the firm a groupof ratios, as opposed to just one or two should be used. Inorder to identify trends at least three years of ratios arenormally required.
The utility of ratio analysis will get further enhanced if following comparison is possible.3.Between the borrower and its competitor4.Between the borrower and the best enterprise in the industry5.Between the borrower and the average performance in the industry6.Between the borrower and the global average
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.

Liabilities have Credit balance and Assets have Debit balanceCurrent Liabilities are those which have either become due forpayment or shall fall due for payment within 12 months fromthe date of Balance SheetCurrent Assets are those which undergo change in theirshape/form within 12 months. These are also called WorkingCapital or Gross Working CapitalNet Worth & Long Term Liabilities are also called Long TermSources of FundsCurrent Liabilities are known as Short Term Sources ofFundsLong Term Liabilities & Short Term Liabilities are also calledOutside Liabilities
Assets other than Current Assets are Long Term Use of FundsInstallments of Term Loan Payable in 12 months are to be taken asCurrent Liability only for Calculation of Current Ratio & Quick Ratio.If there is profit it shall become part of Net Worth under the headReserves and if there is loss it will become part of IntangibleAssetsInvestments in Govt. Securities to be treated current only if theseare marketable and due. Investments in other securities are to betreated Current if they are quoted. Investments inallied/associate/sister units or firms to be treated as Non-current.Bonus Shares as issued by capitalization of General reserves andas such do not affect the Net Worth. With Rights Issue, changetakes place in Net Worth and Current Ratio.
Current Ratio : It is the relationship between the current assets and current liabilities of a concern. Current Ratio = Current Assets/Current Liabilities If the Current Assets and Current Liabilities of a concern are Rs.4,00,000 and Rs.2,00,000 respectively, then the Current Ratio will be : Rs.4,00,000/Rs.2,00,000 = 2 : 1 The ideal Current Ratio preferred by Banks is 1.33 : 1Net Working Capital : This is worked out as surplus of Long Term Sources over Long Tern Uses, alternatively it is the difference of Current Assets and Current Liabilities. NWC = Current Assets – Current Liabilities
Current Assets : Raw Material, Stores, Spares, Work-in Progress. FinishedGoods, Debtors, Bills Receivables, Cash.Current Liabilities : Sundry Creditors, Installments of Term Loan, DPG etc.payable within one year and other liabilities payable within one year.This ratio must be at least 1.33 : 1 to ensure minimum margin of 25% of currentassets as margin from long term sources. Current Ratio measures short term liquidity of the concern and its ability tomeet its short term obligations within a time span of a year. It shows the liquidity position of the enterprise and its ability to meet currentobligations in time.Higher ratio may be good from the point of view of creditors. In the long run veryhigh current ratio may affect profitability ( e.g. high inventory carrying cost) Shows the liquidity at a particular point of time. The position can changeimmediately after that date. So trend of the current ratio over the years to beanalyzed. Current Ratio is to be studied with the changes of NWC. It is also necessary tolook at this ratio along with the Debt-Equity ratio.
3. ACID TEST or QUICK RATIO : It is the ratio between Quick CurrentAssets and Current Liabilities. The should be at least equal to 1.Quick Current Assets : Cash/Bank Balances + Receivables upto 6 months +Quickly realizable securities such as Govt. Securities or quickly marketable/quotedshares and Bank Fixed Deposits Acid Test or Quick Ratio = Quick Current Assets/Current LiabilitiesExample :Cash 50,000Debtors 1,00,000Inventories 1,50,000 Current Liabilities 1,00,000Total Current Assets 3,00,000Current Ratio = > 3,00,000/1,00,000 = 3:1Quick Ratio => 1,50,000/1,00,000 = 1.5 : 1
DEBT EQUITY RATIO : It is the relationship between borrower’s fund (Debt) and Owner’s Capital (Equity). Long Term Outside Liabilities / Tangible Net Worth Liabilities of Long Term Nature Total of Capital and Reserves & Surplus Less Intangible Assets For instance, if the Firm is having the following : Capital = Rs. 200 Lacs Free Reserves & Surplus = Rs. 300 Lacs Long Term Loans/Liabilities = Rs. 800 Lacs Debt Equity Ratio will be => 800/500 i.e. 1.6 : 1
5. PROPRIETARY RATIO : This ratio indicates the extent to which Tangible Assets are financed by Owner’s Fund. Proprietary Ratio = (Tangible Net Worth/Total Tangible Assets) x 100 The ratio will be 100% when there is no Borrowing for purchasing of Assets.6. GROSS PROFIT RATIO : By comparing Gross Profit percentage to Net Sales we can arrive at the Gross Profit Ratio which indicates the manufacturing efficiency as well as the pricing policy of the concern. Gross Profit Ratio = (Gross Profit / Net Sales ) x 100 Alternatively , since Gross Profit is equal to Sales minus Cost of Goods Sold, it can also be interpreted as below : Gross Profit Ratio = [ (Sales – Cost of goods sold)/ Net Sales] x 100 A higher Gross Profit Ratio indicates efficiency in production of the unit.
7. OPERATING PROFIT RATIO : It is expressed as => (Operating Profit / Net Sales ) x 100 Higher the ratio indicates operational efficiency8. NET PROFIT RATIO : It is expressed as => ( Net Profit / Net Sales ) x 100 It measures overall profitability.
9. STOCK/INVENTORY TURNOVER RATIO : (Average Inventory/Sales) x 365 for days (Average Inventory/Sales) x 52 for weeks (Average Inventory/Sales) x 12 for months Average Inventory or Stocks = (Opening Stock + Closing Stock) ----------------------------------------- 2. This ratio indicates the number of times the inventory is rotated during the relevant accounting period
10. DEBTORS TURNOVER RATIO : This is also called DebtorsVelocity or Average Collection Period or Period of Credit given .(Average Debtors/Sales ) x 365 for days (52 for weeks & 12 for months) 11. ASSET TRUNOVER RATIO : Net Sales/Tangible Assets 12. FIXED ASSET TURNOVER RATIO : Net Sales /Fixed Assets 13. CURRENT ASSET TURNOVER RATIO : Net Sales / Current Assets 14. CREDITORS TURNOVER RATIO : This is also called CreditorsVelocity Ratio, which determines the creditor payment period.(Average Creditors/Purchases)x365 for days (52 for weeks & 12 for months)
15. RETRUN ON ASSETS : Net Profit after Taxes/Total Assets16. RETRUN ON CAPITAL EMPLOYED : ( Net Profit before Interest & Tax / Average Capital Employed) x 100 Average Capital Employed is the average of the equity share capital and long term funds provided by the owners and the creditors of the firm at the beginning and end of the accounting period.
Composite Ratio17. RETRUN ON EQUITY CAPITAL (ROE) : Net Profit after Taxes / Tangible Net WorthEARNING PER SHARE : EPS indicates the quantum of net profit of the year that would be ranking for dividend for each share of the company being held by the equity share holders. Net profit after Taxes and Preference Dividend/ No. of Equity Shares19. PRICE EARNING RATIO : PE Ratio indicates the number of times the Earning Per Share is covered by its market price. Market Price Per Equity Share/Earning Per Share
20. DEBT SERVICE COVERAGE RATIO : This ratio is one of the most important one which indicates the ability of an enterprise to meet its liabilities by way of payment of installments of Term Loans and Interest thereon from out of the cash accruals and forms the basis for fixation of the repayment schedule in respect of the Term Loans raised for a project. (The Ideal DSCR Ratio is considered to be 2 ) PAT + Depr. + Annual Interest on Long Term Loans & Liabilities --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Annual interest on Long Term Loans & Liabilities + Annual Installments payable on Long Term Loans & Liabilities ( Where PAT is Profit after Tax and Depr. is Depreciation)

What is the Creditors Velocity Ratio if Purchases are Rs.10.5 Lac ?Ans : (Average Creditors / Purchases ) x 12 = (26 / 1050) x 12 = 0.3 months
Exercise 5. : Profit to sales is 2% and amount of profit is sayRs.5 Lac. Then What is the amount of Sales ?Answer : Net Profit Ratio = (Net Profit / Sales ) x 100 2 = (5 x100) /Sales Therefore Sales = 500/2 = Rs.250 Lac Exercise 6. A Company has Net Worth of Rs.5 Lac, Term Liabilities of Rs.10 Lac. Fixed Assets worth RS.16 Lac and Current Assets are Rs.25 Lac. There is no intangible Assets or other Non Current Assets. Calculate its Net Working Capital. Answer Total Assets = 16 + 25 = Rs. 41 Lac Total Liabilities = NW + LTL + CL = 5 + 10+ CL = 41 Lac Current Liabilities = 41 – 15 = 26 Lac Therefore Net Working Capital = C. A – C.L = 25 – 26 = (- )1 Lac
Exercise 7 : Current Ratio of a concern is 1 : 1. What will be the NetWorking Capital ?Answer : It suggest that the Current Assets is equal to Current Liabilitieshence the NWC would be NIL ( since NWC = C.A - C.L )Exercise 8 : Suppose Current Ratio is 4 : 1. NWC is Rs.30,000/-. Whatis the amount of Current Assets ?Answer : 4a - 1a = 30,000 Therefore a = 10,000 i.e. Current Liabilities is Rs.10,000 Hence Current Assets would be 4a = 4 x 10,000 = Rs.40,000/- Exercise 9. The amount of Term Loan installment is Rs.10000/ per month, monthly average interest on TL is Rs.5000/-. If the amount of Depreciation is Rs.30,000/- p.a. and PAT is Rs.2,70,000/-. What would be the DSCR ? DSCR = (PAT + Depr + Annual Intt.) / Annual Intt + Annual Installment = (270000 + 30000 + 60000 ) / 60000 + 120000 = 360000 / 180000 = 2
Exercise 10 : Total Liabilities of a firm is Rs.100 Lac and Current Ratiois 1.5 : 1. If Fixed Assets and Other Non Current Assets are to the tuneof Rs. 70 Lac and Debt Equity Ratio being 3 : 1. What would be the LongTerm Liabilities? Ans : We can easily arrive at the amount of Current Asset being Rs. 30 Laci.e. ( Rs. 100 L - Rs. 70 L ). If the Current Ratio is 1.5 : 1, then CurrentLiabilities works out to be Rs. 20 Lac. That means the aggregate of NetWorth and Long Term Liabilities would be Rs. 80 Lacs. If the Debt EquityRatio is 3 : 1 then Debt works out to be Rs. 60 Lacs and equity Rs. 20 Lacs.Therefore the Long Term Liabilities would be Rs.60 Lac.Exercise 11 : Current Ratio is say 1.2 : 1 . Total of balance sheet beingRs.22 Lac. The amount of Fixed Assets + Non Current Assets is Rs. 10Lac. What would be the Current Liabilities?Ans : When Total Assets is Rs.22 Lac then Current Assets would be 22 – 10i.e Rs. 12 Lac. Thus we can easily arrive at the Current Liabilities figurewhich should be Rs. 10 Lac
