Ratio analysis

  1. 1. RATIO ANALYSIS Ratio-analysis means the process of computing, determining and presenting the relationship of related items and groups of items of the financial statements. They provide in a summarized and concise form of fairly good idea about the financial position of a unit. They are important tools for financial analysis. According to Myers, " Ratio analysis of financial statements is a study of relationship among various financial factors in a business as disclosed by a single set of statements and a study of trend of these factors as shown in a series of statements."
  2. 2. Advantages and Uses of Ratio Analysis • To workout the profitability: • To workout the solvency: • Helpful in analysis of financial statement: • Helpful in comparative analysis of the performance: • To simplify the accounting information: • To workout the operating efficiency: • To workout short-term financial position: • Helpful for forecasting purposes:

  4. 4. Before looking at the ratios there are a number of cautionary points concerning their use that need to be identified : a. The dates and duration of the financial statements being compared should be the same. If not, the effects of seasonality may cause erroneous conclusions to be drawn. b. The accounts to be compared should have been prepared on the same bases. Different treatment of stocks or depreciations or asset valuations will distort the results. c. In order to judge the overall performance of the firm a group of ratios, as opposed to just one or two should be used. In order to identify trends at least three years of ratios are normally required.
  5. 5. HOW A RATIO IS EXPRESSED • 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.
  6. 6. Liquidity Ratios. • Liquidity refers to the ability of the concern to meet its current obligation as and when these become due the short- term obligations are met by releasing amounts from current floating or circulating assets. The current asset should either be liquid and near liquidity.
  7. 7. •Current Ratio = Current Assets Current Liabilities Rule Of Thumb is 2:1 •Quick Ratio or Acid Test Ratio = Quick Assets Current Liabilities Rule Of Thumb is 1:1
  8. 8. Absolute Liquid Asset = Cash& Bank+ Short Term Securities+ Temporary Investments Current Liabilities Rule of thumb = .5:1 CURRENT ASSETS CURRENT LIABILITIES Cash in hand Creditors Cash at bank Bills payables Debtors Bank overdraft Temporary investment Dividend payables Stock Income recd. In adv Bills receivables Outstanding expenses Prepaid expenses Accrued incomes
  9. 9. Current Asset Movement and efficiency ( Activity Ratio) • Funds are invested in various assets in business to make sales and earn profit the efficiency with which assets are managed directly effect the volume of sales. The better the management the larger is the amount of sales and the profits. Activity ratio measures the efficiencies and the effectiveness with which firm manages its resources and assets.
