4. 4. Raffles Apparel Mart • Don’t waste time calculating the net profit margin and the asset turnover margins as they both multiply out to become the Return on Assets ratio • Return on Assets = net profit / total assets= 7983 / 76 500 • Financial Leverage = total assets / net worth = 76 500 / 35 879 • Therefore return on net worth = net profit /net worth = 7983 / 35 879 = 22.25%
5. 5. Singapore Status Clothiers • Return on Assets = net profit / total assets= 1679 / 9400 • Financial Leverage = total assets / net worth = 9400 / 6044 • Therefore return on net worth = net profit /net worth = 1679 / 6044 = 27.78% • Therefore SSC has a higher return

9. 9. ( c ) If SRS were to raise its asset turnover ratio to the average of the four retailers: • Average asset turnover ratio of the other four retailers = (2.31+3.11+2.84+1.24) / 4 = 2.38 • Therefore the revised Return on Net Worth – Return on assets = 2.38 x 3.4 = 8.1 – Financial leverage = 5.52 (no change) – Therefore RONW = 8.1 x 5.52 = 44.67%
10. 10. ( d ) If ZZS achieve same net profit margin as WG • Same net profit margin as WG = 3.9 • Therefore the revised Return on Net Worth – Return on assets = 3.9 x 2.84 = 11.08 – Financial leverage = 2.98 (no change) – Therefore RONW = 11.08 x 2.98 = 33.02%
