Transcript

  • 1. Financial Key Performance Indicators (KPI)
  • 2. % of actual bills compared to expected bills
    • Definition % of actually generated bills compared to expected bills to be generated by selected period. The period is usually the planned meter reading/billing date. This date is defined in scheduling.
    •  
    •  
    • Calculation # of invoiced billing docs / # of expected billing docs
  • 3. Accounts Payable Turnover Ratio
    • Definition This ratio indicates the number of times the Accounts Payable "turned over" - that is, were paid - in a period.
    •  
    •  
    • Calculation Period Purchases/Accounts Payable, Ending Balance
  • 4. Acid Test Ratio
    • Definition This ratio compares the company's Current Liabilities with its Quick Assets - Cash, Marketable Securities, and Accounts Receivable. These assets are considered "quick" because they either are cash or can be converted to cash quickly. The Acid Test determines how well a corporation can meet its current obligations immediately - within days.
    •  
    •  
    • Calculation [Quick Assets/Current Liabilities] * 100
  • 5. Administration Costs Reductions
    • Definition Administration costs reductions by automating transactions (reduction in redundant data entry)

  • 6. Age structure of open items
    • Definition % of open items (value) that are overdue for more than 30 days, 60 days, 90 days.
    •  
    •  
    • Calculation Sum of overdue open items (debits) by grid (query date - due date)
  • 7. Annual Sales To Inventory Ratio
    • Definition By comparing Inventory to Sales, this ratio indicates whether there is too little or too much inventory to support the given level of sales. The objective is to have the smallest level of inventory while still meeting sales requirements efficiently. Note: Cost of Goods Sold is generally used for this estimate (see: Inventory Turnover), but Sales may substitute for it. The Sales-To-Inventory-Ratio has to be annualized, because Sales accumulate over the year and Inventory balances remain more or less constant from quarter to quarter.
    •  
    •  
    • Calculation Sales/Average Inventory
  • 8. Asset Coverage Ratio
    • Definition The Total Assets divided by the amount of Long Term Debt indicates the safety of the lender's capital. The higher the ratio, the greater the security.
    •  
    •  
    • Calculation Total Assets/[Long Term Debt + Total Equity] * 100
  • 9. Available Liquidity
    • Definition Funds available within a certain maturity band
  • 10. Average Collection Period
    • Definition The Average Collection Period is the average number of days between the day the invoice is sent out and the day the customer pays the bill. Note: Average Daily Credit Sales equals Sales/365. This computation indicates the company's efficiency in enforcing its credit policy.
    •  
    •  
    • Calculation Average Receivables/Sales * 365
  • 11. Average Inventory
    • Definition The sum of the daily/monthly/quarterly stock value for one year of the analysis divided by the number of days. Inventory is also known as 'Stock Value'.
    •  
    •  
    • Calculation Total annual stock value / Number of days
  • 12. Average Receivables
    • Definition The Average Receivables is the sum of the beginning and the closing balance for a period divided by two.
    •  
    •  
    • Calculation [Beginning Receivables + End Of Period Receivables]/2
  • 13. Average Working Capital
    • Definition Average Working Capital is computed by adding the Working Capital values at the beginning and the end of an accounting period and dividing by two.
    •  
    •  
    • Calculation [Beginning Working Capital + End Working Capital]/2
  • 14. Average cost per incident
    • Definition Total costs of incident handling (service desk in total, sales & marketing partly, other involved departments partly) / Number of incidents
    •  
    •  
    • Calculation Sum of costs for processing incidents (service desk in total, sales & marketing partly, other involved departments partly)  in a period / Number of incidents in a period
  • 15. Average due items customer collection per day
    • Definition "Average amount not paid per day, weighed by the number of days between the due date and the end date for the period/payment date. End date for period: End date of the query to be analyzed. Expired due date: The open item has not been paid/cleared before the due date. Example: 2 late payments received. Payment 1 = €200 paid after 12 days late. Payment 2 = €100 paid after 8 days late. Avg. amount not paid per day = (200€ x 12d + €100 x 8d) / (20d x 2p) = €80"
    • Calculation &quot;If payment date > due date or due date < end date for period: Sum [Amount of open items passed due date x ((payment date or end date for period) - due date)] / (# of days in period x # of invoices)&quot;
  • 16. Average payment period for materials
    • Definition This ratio indicates the number of times the Accounts Payable &quot;turned over&quot; - that is, were paid - in a period.
    •  
    •  
    • Calculation Period Purchases/Accounts Payable, Ending Balance
  • 17. Average payments per day
    • Definition &quot;Average amount received per day, weighed by the number of days between the document date and the payment date. Example: 2 payments received in the last 100 days. Payment 1 = €100 paid after 12 days. Payment 2 = €50 paid after 8 days. Average amount received per day = (€100 x 12d + €50 x 8d) / (20d x 2p) = €40&quot;
    •  
    •  
    • Calculation Sum [Amount per payment x # of days per payment] / (# of days in total x # of payments)

    •  
    •  
    • Calculation Borrowed Capital/Equity
  • 21. Break Even Point
    • Definition The Break-Even Point is the Sales level at which the business neither profits nor loses money; Sales and Total Costs are exactly equal. It is a function of Sales, and Fixed and Variable Costs. This computation is made to enable the sales manager to know the point at which a product, a product line, or the business itself becomes profitable. It also can be used to calculate the Sales required to maintain a predetermined level of Operating Income if a variable changes.
    •  
    •  
    • Calculation Fixed Costs/[1 - Variable Costs/Sales]
  • 22. Capital
    • Definition Capital is the difference between the value of a company's Assets and the total of its Liabilities. Capital represents the ownership interest of investors. It is also known as Net Worth or Equity. In a corporation, capital represents the Stockholders' Equity.
    •  
    •  
    • Calculation Total Assets - Total Liabilities
  • 23. Capital Employed Ratio
    • Definition The Capital/Stockholders' Equity has to be adjusted by deducting the value of assets that do not contribute to Operating Income, such as marketable securities or other forms of investment. The ratio of Sales divided by the Capital Employed reflects how well capital (adjusted to exclude noncurrent Assets) is used to produce revenue (sales). A high rate of Capital Employed usually means that capital is being used efficiently.
    •  
    •  
    • Calculation Sales/[Capital - Noncurrent Assets] * 100

    •  
    •  
    • Calculation Common Stock
