( 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%
  11. 11. ( e ) If MDB were to raise its financial leverage to the same level as KCS • New Financial Leverage = 2.52 • Therefore the revised Return on Net Worth= 3.47 x 2.52 = 8.75%
