Ratio Analysis & Interpretation

CHAPTER – 3

INTRODUCTION TO RATIO ANALYSIS
Ratio is numerical relationship between two variables which are connected with each other in some way or the other. Ratios may be expressed in any one of the following manners:

As a number between 500 and 100 may be expressed as 5(500 divided by 100) As a fraction may be expressed as former being 5 times of the later. As a percentage the relationship between 100 and 500 may be expressed as 20% of the later. As a proportion relationship between 100 and 500 may be expressed as 1:5. Ratio analysis facilitate the presentation of information of financial statements in simplified and concise and summarized form.

 

In the words of Hund, William,” Ratios are simply a means of highlighting in arithmetical terms the relationship between figures drawn from financial statements.”

NATURE OF RATIO ANALYSIS Ratio analysis is basically a technique of:
1.

2.

Establishing meaningful relationship between significant variables of financial statement. Interpreting the relationship to form judgement regarding the financial affairs of the unit.

Usefulness of ratio analysis depends upon identifying   

objective of analysis; selection of relevant data; deciding appropriate ratios to be calculated; comparing the calculated ratios with norms of standards or forecasts; Interpretation of ratios.

INTERPRETATION OF RATIOS Ratios are interpreted in following different ways:

individual ratio may be studied with reference to certain rule of thumb.

group ratio may be interpreted by considering group of several related ratios.  comparison with past.  comparison with projections.  inter-firm or inter-industry comparison.

LIQUID RATIO

Liquid ratio measures the ability of the unit to meet its short term obligations and reveals the short – term financial strength or weakness. This ratio is used to determine whether the unit is: » capable to meet short-term obligations » the working capital being properly utilized » the current financial position improving

Current ratio » this ratio is also known as working capital or 2:1 ratio. This ratio reveals the adequacy of current assets to pay off all current liabilities. Formula to calculate this ratio is:

The current ratio of HDFC BANK is high as standard specify, but as the ratio analysis revealed this ratio has been improved as compared to earlier years.

SOLVENCY RATIO
The long-term financial soundness of any business can be judge by its long-term creditors with the help of solvency ratio. This ratio helps to interpreting the capacity of business to: 

make periodic payment of interest , repay long-term debt as per installments stipulated in the contract.

Capital gearing ratio» it is the ratio between capital plus reserves and fixed cost bearing securities. This ratio measures the extent of capitalization by the funds raised by the issue of fixed cost bearing securities. This ratio is interpreted by the use of two terms.

solvency ratio

INTERPRETATION Lower solvency ratio is always desirable because lower ratio means more the bank is able to meet its debt obligations out of its own funds and the bank has no need to depend on outsiders and to pay fixed interest on borrowings.

Total indebtedness ratio» this ratio differs slightly from debt-equity ratio as instead of term liabilities only, we take total outside liabilities i.e. term and current both. This may reflect the solvency position in a better way. As it indicates the adequacy of firm’s equity in making payment of outside liabilities. This ratio is computed as:

solvency ratio, profitability ratios, Return on shareholders’ funds ratio, all these fall in the year 2005, which express bad impression of financial position/health of HDFC BANK ltd., because these ratios are always desirable to rise in subsequent years, as these are the main indications of progress of any unit. On the other hand, debt-equity ratio, reserve to capital ratio, interest coverage ratio, dividend pay-out ratio, all these ratios arise in the year 2005 which too is undesirable, increasing Reserve ratio shows increasing need to maintain separate funds to meet prevailing unfavourable conditions, & which may interpret smooth day-to-day functioning of bank. Increasing Dividend pay-out ratio shows undesirable burden to pay even under unfavourable conditions which too/further leads to misery position of business.
