### Ratio

1. 1. Ratio Analysis MEANING Ratios show the relationship between two numbers. Accounting ratio shows the relationship between two accounting figure. Ratio analysis is the process of computing and presenting the relationships between the items in the financial statement. It is an important tool of financial analysis, because it helps to study the financial performance and position of a concern. FORMS There are three different forms in which an accounting ratio can be expressed 1. Pure ratio: A pure ratio is a simple division of one number by another. The relationship between current asset & current liabilities is expressed in this way. 2. Percentage: Certain accounting ratio becomes more meaning full if expressed as a percentage. The relationship between profit and sales is expressed in this way 3. Rate: Sometimes ratios are expressed as rates i.e. ‘number of times’ over a certain period .relationship between stock and sales is expressed in this way. ****11****
2. 2. Ratio Analysis CLASSIFICATION 1) Based on financial statement According ratio express the relationship between figures taken from financial statement. Figures may be taken from balance sheet, profit & loss account or both. One way of classification of ratio is based upon the sources from which figure are taken A) Balance sheet ratios: If ratio are base on the figure of balance sheet they are called balance sheet ratio E.g. ratio of current assets to current liabilities or ratio of Debt to equity .while calculating these ratio, there is no need to refer to the revenue statement .these ratio study the relationship between the assets and the liabilities of the concern. These ratio help to judge the liquidity, solvency and capital structure of the concern. There are six type of balance sheet ratio as follow: Current ratio, Liquid ratio, Proprietor ratio, Capital gearing ratio, Debt equity ratio a Stock working capital ratio. B) Revenue statement ratios: Ratio based on the figure from the revenue statement are called revenue statement ratio. These ratios study the relationship between the profitability and the sale of the concern. There are six revenue statement ratios, viz Gross profit ratio, Operating ratio, Expenses ratio, Net profit ratio & Net operating profit ratio & Stock turn over ratio. C) Composite ratios: This ratio indicates the relationship between two items, of which one is found in the balance sheet and another in the revenue statement. there are two types of composite ratios i) Some composite ratio study the relation ship between the profit and the investment of the concern E.g. Return on capital employed, Return on proprietors fund, Return on equity capital etc. ii) Other composite ratios that we are going to study are Debtors turnover, Creditors turnover, Dividend payout and Debt services. ****22****
3. 3. Ratio Analysis 2) Based on function: Accounting ratios can be classified according to their function (i.e. their purpose) into Liquidity ratios, Leverage ratios, Activity ratios, Profitability ratios, and Turnover ratios. A) Liquidity ratios: show the relationship between the current assets and current liabilities of the concern. B) Leverage ratios: show the relationship between the proprietor fund and debt used in financing the assets of the concern .Example are Capital gearing ratio ,Debt equity ratio and Proprietary ratio .these ratio s are also known as SOLVENCY RATIOS. C) Activity ratios (also known as TURNOVER RATIOS or PRODICTIVITY RATIOS) show the relationship between the sales and the assets .E.g. Stock turnover ratio, Debtor turnover ratio etc. D) Profitability ratios show the relationship between i. Profit and sales ,for example – Operation ratio, Gross profit ratio, Operating net profit ratio, Expenses ratios Etc, or ii. Profit and investment, for Example-Return on investment, Return on equity capital Etc. E) Coverage ratios show the relationship between the profits on one hand and the claims of outsiders (dividend, interest Etc) to be paid out of such profits. Examples are Dividend payout ratio and debt service ratio. 3) Based on user A) Ratios for short term creditors: current ratio, Liquid ratio & Stock working capital. B) Ratios for Share holder: Return on proprietors’ funds, Return on Equity capital. C) Ratios for Management: Return on capital employed, Turnover ratio, Operating ratio, Expenses ratios. D) Ratios for long term creditors: Debt equity ratio, Return on capital employed, preparatory ratio. ]] ****33****
4. 4. Ratio Analysis 1) CURRENT RATIO (CR) = CURRENT ASSETS (CA) CURRENT LIABILITIES (CL) 2) QUICK / LIQUIDITY RATIO (QR) = QUICK ASSETS (QA) QUICK LIABILITIES (QL) 3) STOCK WORKING CAPITAL (SWC) STOCK (CST) X 100 WORKING CAPITAL (WC) 4) PROPRIETORS RATIO (PR) = PROPRIETORS FUNDS (PF) X 100 TOTAL ASSETS (TA) 5) DEBT EQUITY RATIO (DER) = BF PF 6) CAPITAL GEARING RATIO (CGR) = PC+BF EF ****44****
5. 5. Ratio Analysis 1. CURRENT RATIO (CR) MEANING : This ratio compares the current assets with the current liabilities. It is expressed in the form of a pure ratio. FORMULA : CURRENT RATIO (CR) = CURRENT ASSETS (CA) CURRENT LIABILITIES (CL) COMPONENTS : Current assets: Sundry debtors(less Provision), loose tools, income accrued /Due, Bill receivable, cash and Bank balance, Marketable investment, closing stock of raw material, Working in progress, finished goods, store and spares, Pre payments, short term loan and advance tax.. Current liabilities: Sundry creditors, bill payable, outstanding expenses, unclaimed dividend and proposed dividend, provision for taxation, income received in advanced, bank overdraft. FUNCTION/PURPOSE : Current ratio is a liquidity/solvency ratio which indicates the ability of the concern to meet its short-term liabilities. It measure the short term solvency of the concern .it is used by a creditors to judge the safety margin available and to decide the amount and the term of the credit. LIMITATION  Ignore composition: Current ratio ignores the composition of working capital. Two companies A & B may have the same current ratio; but if company A has more stocks and company B has more cash, company B has a better liquidity / solvency.  Ignores Quality: current ratio also ignores the quality of working capital. two companies A & B may have the same current ratio and the same amount of stock and debtors ,but if company A has more absolute stock and doubtful debts, company B has a better liquidity /solvency. INTERACTION WITH OTHER RATIOS This ratio should be studied with liquid and ratio and stock working capital ratio for judging the short term solvency of the concern. ****55****
6. 6. Ratio Analysis COMMENTS Actual Ratio:- Rs. XX of current assets available for each Re. of current liability. Higher than Standard:- 1. Very good short term liquidity/solvency. 2. Excess stocks, bad debts, idle cash. 3. Under-trading. Lower than Standard:- 1. Unsatisfactory short-term liquidity/solvency. 2. Shortage of stocks, bad debts, idle cash. 3. Over-trading. 2. QUICK/LIQUID RATIO (QR) MEANING: Liquid ratio compares the quick assets with the quick liabilities .it is expressed in the form of a pure ratio .it is also known as quick ratio or Acid test ratio. FORMULA: QUICK / LIQUIDITY RATIO (QR) = QUICK ASSETS (QA) QUICK LIABILITIES (QL) COMPONENTS Quick assets (QA): Current assets (-) l closing stock (-) pre payment i.e. Debtors, loose tools, income accrued, income accrued /Due, Bill receivable, cash and Bank balance, Marketable investment. NOTE: stock is exclude because it is in certain as to when and how much ,it will realise.Prepayment are exclude because ,they cannot be converted into cash. QUICK LIABILITIES (QL): Sundry creditors, bill payable, outstanding expenses, unclaimed dividend and proposed dividend, provision for taxation NOTE: bank overdraft is excluded ,because it is almost a permanent arrangement with the bank and is not required to be paid in full as long as the concern existing. ****66****
7. 7. Ratio Analysis FUNCTION/PURPOSE: Liquid ratio is a liquid/solvency ratio which indicates the ability of the concern to meet its short term liabilities without selling stocks, it measure the immediate solvency of the concern .it overcome the imitation of the current ratio .it consider both the composition and the quality of the working capital .it is qualitative test of solvency .it emphasizes the quality of the current assets (i.e. their convertibility in to cash) rather than their quantum. INTERACTION WITH OTHER RATIOS Liquid ratio should be studied with current ratio for commenting on short term solvency COMMENTS Actual Ratio:- Rs. XX of liquid assets available for each Re. of quick liability. Higher than Standard:- 1. Very good day-to-day liquidity/solvency. 2. Idle cash balances. 3. Under-investment. Lower than Standard:- 1. Unsatisfactory day-to-day liquidity/solvency. 2. Low cash balances. 3. Over-investment. ****77****
8. 8. Ratio Analysis 3. STOCK TO WORKING CAPITAL RATIO MEANING: This ratio shows the relationship between the closing stock and the working capital. It helps to judge the quantum of inventories in relation o the working capital of the business. It is expressed as a percentage. It is also known as Inventory Working Capital Ratio. FORMULA: STOCK TO WORKING CAPITAL RATIO =STOCK (CST) X 100 WORKING CAPITAL(WC) COMPONENTS Stock [CST] would mean closing stock. Working Capital [WC] = Current Assets less Current Liabilities FUNCTION/PURPOSE Stock to working capital ratio is a liquidity ratio. It indicates the composition and quality of the working capital. This ratio also helps to study the solvency of a concern. It is qualitative test of solvency. It shows the extent of funds blocked in stocks. If investment in stock is higher it means that the amount of liquid assets is lower. INTERACTION WITH OTHER RATIOS This ratio should be studied with stock-turnover ratio, current ratio and quick ratio. Best combination for short-term solvency would be: (1)Current Ratio 2:1 (2)Quick ratio slightly greater than one. (3)Good stock-turnover during the say 6 to 7 times, and Stock to working capital ratio lower than 100% COMMENTS Actual Ratio:- % of WC blocked in stocks. Higher than Standard:- 1. More other current assets available to pay current liabilities. Lower than Standard:- 1. Less other current assets available to pay current liabilities. ****88****
9. 9. Ratio Analysis 4. PROPRIETORY RATIO MEANING: Proprietary ratio compares proprietor’s funds with total liabilities (or total assets). It is usually expressed in the form of percentage. It is also known as Net Worth to Total Assets Ratio, Equity Ratio, and Net worth Ratio or Asset Backing Ratio. FORMULA: PROPRIETORY RATIO = PROPRIETORS’ FUNDS OR SHAREHOLDER’S EQUITY (PF) X 100 TOTAL ASSETS OR TOTAL LIABILITIES (TA OR TL) COMPONENTS: Proprietors’ Funds [PF] will include: 1. Paid up Equity capital (EC) 2. Reserves & Surplus (RS) including capital reserves, revenue reserves, P&L a/c Cr. Balance Less: Accumulated losses (i.e. P & L a/c Dr. Balance) Less: Fictitious Assets like Miscellaneous Expenditure not written off. 3. Paid up Preference Capital (PC) Thus, PF = EC + RS + PC or EF + PC Total Assets [TA] (Fixed Assets + Investments + Current Assets) = Total Liabilities [TL] (Own Funds + Loans + Current Liabilities) = Total of the (Horizontal) Balance Sheet excluding fictitious assets & Accumulated losses (if any). = Capital Employed + Current Liabilities FUNCTION/PURPOSE: Proprietary ratio is a solvency ratio which indicates (i) The long term solvency; and (ii) The extent of funds invested by the owners in relation to total funds employed in the business (i.e. capitalization). INTERACTION WITH OTHER RATIOS: This ratio should be studied with Debt-Equity ratio to study the capital structure and with Current and Liquid ratio to comment on the long term and short term solvency of the business. ****99****
10. 10. Ratio Analysis COMMENTS Actual Ratio:- % of total assets financed by owner’s funds. Higher than Standard:- 1. Very good solvency position. 2. No trading on equity. Lower than Standard:- 1. Unsatisfactory solvency position. 2. Trading on equity. 5. DEBT-EQUITY RATIO MEANING: THIS ratio compares the long term debts with shareholders’ funds. It is usually expressed as a pure ratio. FORMULA: This ratio is calculated in two ways (1) Debt = Borrowed Funds(BF) Equity Proprietors’ Funds (PF) (2) BF . BF + PF COMPONENTS Borrowed Funds [BF] includes 1. Debentures, Loans, etc. 2. Interest accrued and due on such BF. Proprietors’ Funds [PF] includes 1. Equity share capital (EC) 2. Reserves & Surplus (RS) Less: (a) Profit & Loss A/c Dr. Balance (loss (b) Miscellaneous Expenditure not written-off, if any. 3. Preference share capital (PC) ****1010****
11. 11. Ratio Analysis PURPOSE/FUNCTION Debt-equity ratio is a solvency ratio which indicates the proportion of debt and equity in financing of the assets of the concern. Debt-equity ratio shows the (i) margin of safety for long term creditors; and (ii) The balance between debt and equity (i.e. capitalization). INTERACTION WITH CAPITAL GEARING RATIO This ratio differs from Capital Gearing Ratio in one aspect. Preference share capital is considered as a part of Equity in Debt-equity ratio whereas it is clubbed with loans and debentures in Capital Gearing Ratio. COMMENTS Actual Ratio:- Rs. X obtained from debt, for each Re. 1 from shareholders. Higher than Standard:- 1. Low safety margin for lenders. 2. More interest payments. 3. Less scope for more loans. 4. Trading on equity.

12. 12. Ratio Analysis 6. CAPITAL GEARING RATIO MEANING ‘Gearing’ means the process of increasing the equity shareholder’s return through the use of debt. Equity Shareholders earn more when the rate of return on total capital is more than the rate of interest on debts. This is also known as ‘leverage’ or ‘trading on equity’. The Capital Gearing Ratio shows the relationship between two types of capital viz. (i) Equity capital including reserves and (ii) Preference share capital and long term borrowings. It is usually expressed as a pure ratio. This is also known as ‘Capital Structure Ratio’. FORMULA Capital Gearing Ratio = Capital Entitled to fixed Rate of Interest or Dividend = PC + BF Capital not so entitled to Fixed Rate of Interest or Dividend EF COMPONENTS Capital entitled to fixed rate of interest or dividend 1. Preference capital (PC) 2. Debentures, Long term loans, i.e. Borrowed Funds (BF) Capital not entitled to fixed rate of interest or dividend (Equity holders’ Fund or EF) 1. Equity Capital (EC) 2. Reserves & Surplus (RS) Less: Profit & Loss A/c Dr. Balance Less: Fictitious Assets Thus, CGR = PC + BF EF PURPOSE/FUNCTION Capital Gearing Ratio is a leverage ratio which indicates the proportion of debt and equity in the financing of assets of a concern. ‘Leverage’ means his process of increasing the equity shareholders’ return through the use of debt also known as ‘gearing’ or ‘trading on equity’. Capital Gearing Ratio shows the balance between debt and equity. ****1212****
13. 13. Ratio Analysis COMMENTS Actual Ratio:- For every Rs. XX from funds with fixed returns, Re. 1 is from equity shareholders. Higher than Standard:- Higher returns for equity shareholders if rate of fixed returns is less than ROI. Lower than Standard:- Low returns/loss to equity shareholders if rate of fixed returns is more than ROI. ****1313****
14. 14. Ratio Analysis 1. Gross Profit Ratio: GPR= GP/Sales x 100 2. Operating Ratio: OR= COGS + OE/Sales x100 3. Expense Ratio: ER= AE or SE or FE/Sales x100 4.

Study of Expense ratios helps us to know the cause behind overall change in the Operating ratio. Management can take corrective action accordingly. Expense ratios indicate the efficiency of management in controlling the expenses and thereby improving profitability. Expenses ratios over a number of years should be studied to find out trend. While interpreting these ratios, it must be kept in mind that if expenses are fixed in nature, ratio would decrease as sales increase but if expenses are variable, same percentage would be maintained.

Its purpose is to (i) calculate the speed at which stock is being turned over into sales; (ii) calculate the stock velocity to indicate the period taken by the average stock to be sold out; and (iii) judge how efficiently the stocks are managed and utilized to generate sales. ****2222****
23. 23. Ratio Analysis INTERACTION WITH OTHER RATIO: THIS ratio should be studied with the current ratio and liquid ratio while commenting on short term liquid/solvency .if Company’s current ratio is 2:1 & liquid ratio is 0.5:1, it means that the concern has larger stocks and low quick assets. This fact can be proved if company’s stocks turnover ratio is very low say 1 or 2 which means low stocks – turnover is the reason for good current ratio but bad quick ratio. COMMENTS Actual Ratio:- Stock Holding Period is xx. Higher than Standard:- 1. Stock sold out fast. 2. Same volume of sales from less stock. 3. More sales from less stock. 4.
