Later. Through this report. Dhirubhai Ambani. Through a thorough financial analysis. studied and interpreted in light of company¶s performance. I study ratio analysis. a company that has been made Mr. Issue of bonus Debentures and other current news are analyzed and their impact on the bottom line of the company is assessed. Dhirubhai Ambani. I try and evaluate the various ratios to appreciate their impact on company¶s performance over the last four years The financial statements of last four years are identified. 6 . I decided to choose one of India¶s largest companies in a sector that has rapidly grown over the last few years and a company where leaders like Mr. my aim to understand the financial factors is influencing the company and its decision making. fund flow analysis and cash flow analysis of the company to analyzing the financial position of the company in last four years. I try and analyze the financial environment in which Reliance Industry Limited is operating.Executive Summary The project assigned to me was to study the financial health of any organization in the country. or rather. Finally. Critical decisions of distributing dividends.

The final step is interpretation and drawing of inference and conclusions. and so on and the Profit and Loss account shows the results of operations during a certain period of time in terms of the revenues obtained and the cost incurred during the year.Introduction Meaning of Financial Statement Financial statements refer to such statements which contains financial information about an enterprise. They report profitability and the financial position of the business at the end of accounting period. liabilities and owners equity. The two statements are: y y The Balance Sheet Profit And Loss Account They provide some extremely useful information to the extent that balance Sheet mirrors the financial position on a particular date in terms of the structure of assets. relation and evaluation. The team financial statement includes at least two statements which the accountant prepares at the end of an accounting period. The second step is to arrange the information in a way to highlight significant relationship. Financial statement is the process of selection. Thus the financial statement provides a summarized view of financial position and operations of a firm Meaning of Financial Analysis The first task of financial analysis is to select the information relevant to the decision under consideration to the total information contained in the financial statement. 7 .

Features of Financial Analysis y To present a complex data contained in the financial statement in simple and understandable form. y Purpose of Analysis of financial statements y y y y y y y y To know the earning capacity or profitability. y To classify the items contained in the financial statement inconvenient and rational groups. To know the efficiency of mgt. To make comparison between various groups to draw various conclusions. To know the financial strengths. To provide useful information to mgt Procedure of Financial Statement Analysis y The following procedure is adopted for the analysis and interpretation of financial statements:- 8 . To make comparative study with other firms. To know the capability of payment of interest & dividends. To know the trend of business. To know the solvency.

however. Analyzing financial statements involves evaluating three characteristics of a company: its liquidity. trends. The liquidity of the borrower is extremely important in evaluating the safety of a loan. Breaking down of individual components of statement according to nature. is primarily interested in the ability of the borrower to pay obligations when they come due. its profitability. Earning capacity of the enterprise then analysis of income statement will be undertaken. If the aim is find out. It will involve the grouping similar data under same heads. A short-term creditor. A long-term creditor.y The analyst should acquaint himself with principles and postulated of accounting. The significance and utility of financial data is explained for help indecision making. y The conclusions drawn from interpretation are presented to the management in the form of reports. He should know the plans and policies of the managements that he may be able to find out whether these plans are properly executed or not. such as a bank. if financial position is to be studied then balance sheet analysis will be necessary. A relationship is established among financial statements with the help of tools & techniques of analysis such as ratios. y The extent of analysis should be determined so that the sphere of work may be decided. such as a bondholder. Long- 9 . On the other hand. looks to profitability and solvency measures that indicate the company¶s ability to survive over a long period of time. y The information is interpreted in a simple and understandable way. common size. The data is reduced to a standard form. fund flow etc. y The financial data be given in statement should be recognized and rearranged. and its insolvency.

term creditors consider such measures as the amount of debt in the company¶s capital structure and its ability to meet interest payments. Similarly, stockholders are interested in the profitability and solvency of the company. They want to assess the likelihood of dividends and the growth potential of the stock. Comparison can be made on a number of different bases. Following are the three illustrations:

1. Intra-company basis.
This basis compares an item or financial relationship within a company in the current year with the same item or relationship in one or more prior years. For example, Sears, Roebuck and Co. can compare its cash balance at the end of the current year with last year¶s balance to find the amount of the increase or decrease. Likewise, Sears can compare the percentage of cash to current assets at the end of the current year with the percentage in one or more prior years. Intra-company comparisons are useful in detecting changes in financial relationships and significant trends. 2. Industry averages. This basis compares an item or financial relationship of a company with industry averages (or norms) published by financial ratings organizations such as Dun & Bradstreet, Moody¶s and Standard & Poor¶s. For example, Sears¶s net income can be compared with the average net income of all companies in the retail chain-store industry. Comparisons with industry averages provide information as to a company¶s relative performance within the industry.

10

3. Intercompany basis.
This basis compares an item or financial relationship of one company with the same item or relationship in one or more competing companies. The comparisons are made on the basis of the published financial statements of the individual companies. For example, Sears¶s total sales for the year can be compared with the total sales of its major competitors such as Kmart and Wal-Mart. Intercompany comparisons are useful in determining a company¶s competitive position.

Tools of Financial Statement Analysis Various tools are used to evaluate the significance of financial statement data. Three commonly used tools are these: y Ratio Analysis y Funds Flow Analysis y Cash Flow Analysis Ratio Analysis:
Fundamental Analysis has a very broad scope. One aspect looks at the general (qualitative) factors of a company. The other side considers tangible and measurable factors (quantitative). This means crunching and analyzing numbers from the financial statements. If used in conjunction with other methods, quantitative analysis can produce excellent results. Ratio analysis isn't just comparing different numbers from the balance sheet, income statement, and cash flow statement. It's comparing the number against previous years, other companies, the industry, or even the economy in general. Ratios look at the

11

relationships between individual values and relate them to how a company has performed in the past, and might perform in the future.

Meaning of Ratio:
A ratio is one figure express in terms of another figure. It is a mathematical yardstick that measures the relationship two figures, which are related to each other and mutually interdependent. Ratio is express by dividing one figure by the other related figure. Thus a ratio is an expression relating one number to another. It is simply the quotient of two numbers. It can be expressed as a fraction or as a decimal or as a pure ratio or in absolute figures as ³so many times´. As accounting ratio is an expression relating two figures or accounts or two sets of account heads or group contain in the financial statements.

Meaning of Ratio Analysis:
Ratio analysis is the method or process by which the relationship of items or group of items in the financial statement are computed, determined and presented. Ratio analysis is an attempt to derive quantitative measure or guides concerning the financial health and profitability of business enterprises. Ratio analysis can be used both in trend and static analysis. There are several ratios at the disposal of an analyst but their group of ratio he would prefer depends on the purpose and the objective of analysis. While a detailed explanation of ratio analysis is beyond the scope of this section, we will focus on a technique, which is easy to use. It can provide you with a valuable investment analysis tool.

12

This technique is called cross-sectional analysis. A company whose leverage ratio is higher than a competitor's has more debt per equity. A financial ratio measures a company's performance in a specific area. You can use this information to make a judgment as to which company is a better investment risk. You obtain a better indication of the direction in which a company is moving when several ratios are taken as a group. For example. Cross-sectional analysis compares financial ratios of several companies from the same industry. Objective of Ratios: Ratios are worked out to analyze the following aspects of business organizationA) Solvency1) Long term 2) Short term 3) Immediate B) Stability C) Profitability D) Operational efficiency E) Credit standing 13 . you must be careful not to place too much importance on one ratio. By comparing the leverage ratios of two companies. Ratio analysis can provide valuable information about a company's financial health. you could use a ratio of a company's debt to its equity to measure a company's leverage. However. you can determine which company uses greater debt in the conduct of its business.

000: 5.50.000/12.5 times are the credit sales that of cash sales. such relationship can be expressed in different ways as follows ± A] As a pure ratio: For example the equity share capital of a company is Rs.000] = 2.00.000 = 4:1.5 [30. 12.00. C] As a percentage: In such a case. then the gross profit may be described as 20% of sales [ 10. the cash sales of a firm are Rs.00.000. For example. 5.00. B] As a rate of times: In the above case the equity share capital may also be described as 4 times that of preference share capital.000.00.00.000 & the preference share capital is Rs. one item may be expressed as a percentage of some other items.000] 14 .000 & credit sales are Rs. the ratio of equity share capital to preference share capital is 20. 30. So the ratio of credit sales to cash sales can be described as 2.000/50. 20. net sales of the firm are Rs. 00.00. 10.00. Similarly.F) Structural analysis G) Effective utilization of resources H) Leverage or external financing Forms of Ratio: Since a ratio is a mathematical relationship between two or more variables / accounting figures.00.00.000.000 & the amount of the gross profit is Rs.00.

the analyst cannot reach any fruitful conclusion unless the calculated ratio is compared with some predetermined standard. The importance of a correct standard is oblivious as the conclusion is going to be based on the standard itself. The cross section analysis helps the analyst to find out as to how a particular firm has performed in relation to its competitors. In interpreting the ratio of a particular firm. So it involves the comparison of two or more firm¶s financial ratio at the same point of time.Steps in Ratio Analysis The ratio analysis requires two steps as follows: 1] Calculation of ratio 2] Comparing the ratio with some predetermined standards. The firm¶s performance may be compared with the performance of the leader in the industry in order to uncover the major operational inefficiencies. Types of comparisons The ratio can be compared in three different ways ± 1] Cross section analysis: One of the way of comparing the ratio or ratios of the firm is to compare them with the ratio or ratios of some other selected firm in the same industry at the same point of time. The standard ratio may be the past ratio of the same firm or industry¶s average ratio or a projected ratio or the ratio of the most successful firm in the industry. The cross section analysis is easy to be undertaken as most of the data required for this may be available in financial statement of the firm. 15 .

For example. an assessment can be made about the trend in progress of the firm. The Time series analysis looks for (1) Important trends in financial performance (2) Shift in trend over the years (3) Significant deviation if any from the other set of data\ 3] Combined analysis: If the cross section & time analysis. but it is decreasing over the years & is approaching the industry average. over the years it has been declining for the firm. 16 . The combined analysis as depicted in the above diagram. whereas the industry average has not shown any significant changes. about the direction of progress of the firm. A trend of ratio of a firm compared with the trend of the ratio of the standard firm can give good results.2] Time series analysis: The analysis is called Time series analysis when the performance of a firm is evaluated over a period of time. which clearly shows that the ratio of the firm is above the industry average. Time series analysis helps to the firm to assess whether the firm is approaching the long-term goals or not. both are combined together to study the behavior & pattern of ratio. the ratio of operating expenses to net sales for firm may be higher than the industry average however. then meaningful & comprehensive evaluation of the performance of the firm can definitely be made. By comparing the present performance of a firm with the performance of the same firm over the last few years.

Pre-Requisites to Ratio Analysis:
In order to use the ratio analysis as device to make purposeful conclusions, there are certain pre-requisites, which must be taken care of. It may be noted that these prerequisites are not conditions for calculations for meaningful conclusions. The accounting figures are inactive in them & can be used for any ratio but meaningful & correct interpretation & conclusion can be arrived at only if the following points are well considered. 1) The dates of different financial statements from where data is taken must be same. 2) If possible, only audited financial statements should be considered, otherwise there must be sufficient evidence that the data is correct. 3) Accounting policies followed by different firms must be same in case of cross section analysis otherwise the results of the ratio analysis would be distorted. 4) One ratio may not throw light on any performance of the firm. Therefore, a group of ratios must be preferred. This will be conductive to counter checks. 5) Last but not least, the analyst must find out that the two figures being used to calculate a ratio must be related to each other, otherwise there is no purpose of calculating a ratio.

Based on Financial Statement
Accounting ratios express the relationship between figures taken from financial statements. Figures may be taken from Balance Sheet, P& P A/C, or both. One-way of classification of ratios is based upon the sources from which are taken. 1] Balance sheet ratio: If the ratios are based on the figures of balance sheet, they are called Balance Sheet Ratios. E.g. Ratio of current assets to current liabilities or Debt to equity ratio. While calculating these ratios, there is no need to refer to the Revenue statement. These ratios study the relationship between the assets & the liabilities, of the concern. These ratios help to judge the liquidity, solvency & capital structure of the concern. Balance sheet ratios are Current ratio, Liquid ratio, and Proprietary ratio, Capital gearing ratio, Debt equity ratio, and Stock working capital ratio. 2] Revenue ratio: Ratio based on the figures from the revenue statement is called revenue statement ratios. These ratios study the relationship between the profitability & the sales of the concern. Revenue ratios are Gross profit ratio, Operating ratio, Expense ratio, Net profit ratio, Net operating profit ratio, Stock turnover ratio. 3] Composite ratio: These ratios indicate the relationship between two items, of which one is found in the balance sheet & other in revenue statement. There are two types of composite ratios-

19

g. stock turnover ratios.a) Some composite ratios study the relationship between the profits & the investments of the concern. E. debtors¶ turnover ratios. return on equity capital etc. activity ratios. 1] Liquidity ratios: It shows the relationship between the current assets & current liabilities of the concern e. 4] Profitability ratios: a) It shows the relationship between profits & sales e. return on equity capital.g. debt equity ratios.g. operating net profit ratios. & debt service ratios Based on Function: Accounting ratios can also be classified according to their functions in to liquidity ratios.g. It is also known as Turnover ratios & productivity ratios e. capital gearing ratios. return on capital employed. creditors turnover ratios. debtors turnover ratios. return on proprietors fund. profitability ratios & turnover ratios.g. liquid ratios & current ratios. leverage ratios. return on investment. gross profit ratios. dividend payout ratios. expenses ratios b) It shows the relationship between profit & investment e. operating ratios. & Proprietary ratios.g. 20 . b) Other composite ratios e. 2] Leverage ratios: It shows the relationship between proprietors funds & debts used in financing the assets of the concern e.g. 3] Activity ratios: It shows relationship between the sales & the assets.

dividend payout ratios & debt service ratios. return on capital employed. operating ratios. stock working capital ratios 2] Ratios for the shareholders: Return on proprietors fund. proprietor ratios. return on equity capital 3] Ratios for management: Return on capital employed. 21 .5] Coverage ratios: It shows the relationship between the profit on the one hand & the claims of the outsiders to be paid out of such profit e. turnover ratios.g. liquid ratios. expenses ratios 4] Ratios for long-term creditors: Debt equity ratios. Based on User: 1] Ratios for short-term creditors: Current ratios.

which indicate the liquidity of a company. E. It is expressed in the form of pure ratio. These ratios are discussed below Current Ratio Meaning: This ratio compares the current assets with the current liabilities. 2:1 Formula: Current assets Current ratio = Current liabilities 22 . It is also known as µworking capital ratio¶ or µsolvency ratio¶. Quick/Acid-Test ratio. The ratios. and Cash ratio. are Current ratio.Liquidity Ratio: Liquidity refers to the ability of a firm to meet its short-term (usually up to 1 year) obligations.g.

with in a year. as originally contemplated.. Recommended current ratio is 2: 1. This ratio measures the liquidity of the current assets and the ability of a company to meet its short-term debt obligation. Current liabilities consist of trade creditors. and prepaid expenses. which will become liquid within approximately twelve months with liabilities. and provision for taxation.The current assets of a firm represents those assets which can be. 23 . in the ordinary course of business.e.term liabilities. bills payable. which will be due for payment in the same period and is intended to indicate whether there are sufficient short-term assets to meet the short. the greater the short-term solvency. Current assets include cash and bank balances. CA gets converted into cash in the operating cycle of the firm and provides the funds needed to pay for CL. Any ratio below indicates that the entity may face liquidity problem but also Ratio over 2: 1 as above indicates over trading. dividends payable and outstanding expenses. that is the entity is under utilizing its current assets. normally not exceeding one year. i. This compares assets. The current liabilities defined as liabilities which are short term maturing obligations to be met. bills receivable. CR measures the ability of the company to meet its CL. bank credit. semifinished and finished goods. Current ratio (CR) is the ratio of total current assets (CA) to total current liabilities (CL). debtors (net of provision for bad and doubtful debts). converted into cash within a short period time. The higher the current ratio. inventory of raw materials. marketable securities.

a quick ratio of 1:1 is considered good. This is a fairly stringent measure of liquidity because it is based on those current assets. One drawback of the quick ratio is that it ignores the timing of receipts and payments.Liquid Ratio: Meaning: Liquid ratio is also known as acid test ratio or quick ratio. Generally. Inventories are excluded from the numerator of this ratio because they are deemed the least liquid component of current assets. short-term marketable securities. Liquid ratio compares the quick assets with the quick liabilities. Inventory and prepaid expenses are excluded since these cannot be turned into cash as and when required.g. 24 . cash immediately or at a short notice without diminution of value. which are highly liquid. 1:1. QR indicates the extent to which a company can pay its current liabilities without relying on the sale of inventory. It is expressed in the form of pure ratio. E. and sundry debtors. QA includes cash and bank balances. which can be converted into. The term quick assets refer to current assets. QA refers to those current assets that can be converted into cash immediately without any value strength. Formula: Quick assets Liquid ratio = Quick liabilities Quick Ratio (QR) is the ratio between quick current assets (QA) and CL.

If the super liquid assets are too much in relation to the current liabilities then it may affect the profitability of the firm. Formula: Cash + Bank + Marketable securities Cash ratio = Total current liabilities Since cash and bank balances and short term marketable securities are the most liquid assets of a firm.Cash Ratio: Meaning: This is also called as super quick ratio. Investment/ Shareholder EARNING PER SHARE:Meaning: 25 . financial analysts look at the cash ratio. This ratio considers only the absolute liquidity available with the firm.

But remember not all profit earned is going to be distributed as dividends the company also retains some profits for the business Dividend Per Share:Meaning: DPS shows how much is paid as dividend to the shareholders on each share held. Formula: Dividend Paid to Ordinary Shareholders Dividend per Share = Number of Ordinary Shares 26 . Earnings per Share represent earning of the company whether or not dividends are declared. EPS measures the profits available to the equity shareholders on each share held. Formula: Net Profit after Tax Earnings per share = Number of equity share The higher EPS will attract more investors to acquire shares in the company as it indicates that the business is more profitable enough to pay the dividends in time. the earning per share are determined by dividing net profit by the number of equity shares.Earnings per Share are calculated to find out overall profitability of the organization. If there is only one class of shares.

Formula: Dividend per share Dividend Payout ratio = Earning per share *100 D/P ratio shows the percentage share of net profits after taxes and after preference dividend has been paid to the preference equity holders.Dividend Payout Ratio:Meaning: Dividend Pay-out Ratio shows the relationship between the dividends paid to equity shareholders out of the profit available to the equity shareholders. Equity shareholders earn more when the rate of the return on total capital is 27 . Gearing CAPITAL GEARING RATIO:Meaning: Gearing means the process of increasing the equity shareholders return through the use of debt.

A firm. can comfortably meet its operating expenses and provide more returns to its shareholders. GROSS PROFIT RATIO:28 .more than the rate of interest on debts. It is expressed as a pure ratio. Formula: Preference capital+ secured loan Capital gearing ratio = Equity capital & reserve & surplus Capital gearing ratio indicates the proportion of debt & equity in the financing of assets of a concern. This is also known as leverage or trading on equity. Profitability These ratios help measure the profitability of a firm. The relationship between profit and sales is measured by profitability ratios.equity capital & preference capital & long term borrowings. There are two types of profitability ratios: Gross Profit Margin and Net Profit Margin. which generates a substantial amount of profits per rupee of sales. The Capital-gearing ratio shows the relationship between two types of capital viz: .

Jointly * 100 * 100 29 . selling. pricing and tax management. It measures the overall efficiency of production. It is defined as the excess of the net sales over cost of goods sold or excess of revenue over cost. purchase. Gross profit Gross profit ratio = Net sales Net Profit Ratio:Meaning: Net Profit ratio indicates the relationship between the net profit & the sales it is usually expressed in the form of a percentage. This ratio shows the profit that remains after the manufacturing costs have been met. selling & inventory. how good its control is over the direct cost. It measures the efficiency of production as well as pricing. how productive the concern . Formula: NPAT Net profit ratio = Net sales This ratio shows the net earnings (to be distributed to both equity and preference shareholders) as a percentage of net sales. financing.Meaning: This ratio measures the relationship between gross profit and sales. administration. how much amount is left to meet other expenses & earn net profit. This ratio helps to judge how efficient the concern is I managing its production.

They are also called efficiency ratios or asset utilization ratios as they measure the efficiency of a firm in managing assets. The term fund employed or the capital employed refers to the total long-term source of funds. It is the sum of long-term liabilities and owner's equity. Capital employed refers to the long-term funds invested by the creditors and the owners of a firm. Alternatively it can also be defined as fixed assets plus net working capital. These ratios are based on the relationship between the level of activity represented by sales or cost of goods sold and levels of investment in various assets.considered. the gross and net profit margin ratios provide an understanding of the cost and profit structure of a firm. Formula: NPAT Return on capital employed = Capital employed *100 Financial These ratios determine how quickly certain current assets can be converted into cash. The important turnover ratios are debtors turnover ratio. 30 . Return on Capital Employed:Meaning: The profitability of the firm can also be analyzed from the point of view of the total funds employed in the firm. ROCE indicates the efficiency with which the long-term funds of a firm are utilized. It means that the capital employed comprises of shareholder funds plus long-term debts.

inventory/stock turnover ratio. These are described below: DEBTORS TURNOVER RATIO (DTO) Meaning: DTO is calculated by dividing the net credit sales by average debtors outstanding during the year. Net credit sales are the gross credit sales minus returns. and total assets turnover ratio. Formula: Credit sales Debtors turnover ratio = Average debtors The higher the DTO. It measures the liquidity of a firm's debts. Average debtors are the average of debtors at the beginning and at the end of the year. 31 . from customers. the better it is for the organization. This ratio shows how rapidly debts are collected. fixed assets turnover ratio.average collection period. if any.

Formula: Cost of Goods Sold Stock Turnover Ratio = Average stock ITR reflects the efficiency of inventory management. A high ratio indicates a high degree of efficiency in asset utilization while a low ratio reflects an 32 . which may lead to frequent stock outs and loss of sales and customer goodwill. In general. the more efficient is the management of inventories. the average of inventories at the beginning and the end of the year is taken. However. averages may be used when a flow figure (in this case. cost of goods sold) is related to a stock figure (inventories).Inventory or Stock Turnover Ratio (ITR) Meaning: ITR refers to the number of times the inventory is sold and replaced during the accounting period. The higher the ratio. For calculating ITR. Fixed AssetsTurnover (FAT) The FAT ratio measures the net sales per rupee of investment in fixed assets. and vice versa. a high inventory turnover may also result from a low level of inventory. Formula: Net sales Fixed assets turnover = Net fixed assets This ratio measures the efficiency with which fixed assets are employed.

It relates shareholders fund to total assets. Total assets also know it as net worth. This ratio determines the long term or ultimate solvency of the company. In other words. It helps to judge the quantum of inventories in relation to the working capital of the 33 . Proprietary ratio determines as to what extent the owner¶s interest & expectations are fulfilled from the total investment made in the business operation.inefficient use of assets. Proprietors Ratio: Meaning: Proprietary ratio is a test of financial & credit strength of the business. the fixed assets turnover ratio tends to be high (because the denominator of the ratio is very low). Proprietary ratio compares the proprietor fund with total liabilities. It is usually expressed in the form of percentage. However. Formula: Proprietary fund Proprietary ratio = Total fund OR Shareholders fund Proprietary ratio = Fixed assets + current liabilities Stock Working Capital Ratio: Meaning: This ratio shows the relationship between the closing stock & the working capital. this ratio should be used with caution because when the fixed assets of a firm are old and substantially depreciated.

Debt Equity Ratio: Mening: This ratio compares the long-term debts with shareholders fund. this ratio indicates the relative proportion of debt & equity in financing the assets of the firm. Formula: Stock Stock working capital ratio = Working Capital Stock working capital ratio is a liquidity ratio. E.business. This relationship is shown by debt equity ratio.g. It is a qualitative test of solvency. If investment in stock is higher it means that the amount of liquid assets is lower. It indicates the composition & quality of the working capital. The purpose of this ratio is to show the extent to which working capital is blocked in inventories. It is expressed as a percentage. The relationship between borrowed funds & owners capital is a popular measure of the long term financial solvency of a firm. Leverage is also 34 . This ratio also helps to study the solvency of a concern. The ratio highlights the predominance of stocks in the current financial position of the company. It is usually expressed as a pure ratio. Alternatively. Leverage means the process of the increasing the equity shareholders return through the use of debt. 2:1 Formula: Total long-term debt Debt equity ratio = Total shareholders fund Debt equity ratio is also called as leverage ratio. It shows the extent of funds blocked in stock.

It is a relation between net credit purchase and average creditors Net credit purchase Credit turnover ratio = Average creditors * 100 Months in a year Average age of accounts payable = Credit turnover ratio 35 . This ratio is of practical importance to prospective investors & shareholders. Return on proprietors fund is a profitability ratio. This ratio indicates the relationship between net profits earned & total proprietor¶s funds. Return on Proprietor Fund: Meaning: Return on proprietors fund is also known as µreturn on proprietor¶s equity¶ or µreturn on shareholders¶ investment¶ or µinvestment ratio¶.known as µgearing¶ or µtrading on equity¶. Its purpose is to measure the rate of return on the total fund made available by the owners. which the relationship between profit & investment by the proprietors in the concern. Debt equity ratio shows the margin of safety for long-term creditors & the balance between debt & equity. It shows the speed at which payments are made to the supplier for purchase made from them. This ratio helps to judge how efficient the concern is in managing the owner¶s fund at disposal. Formula: NPAT Return on proprietors fund = Proprietor¶s fund Creditors Turnover Ratio: It is same as debtors turnover ratio.

The importance of ratio analysis lies in the fact that it presents facts on a comparative basis & enables the drawing of interference regarding the performance of a firm. This ability is reflected in the liquidity ratio of a firm. The liquidity ratio is particularly useful in credit analysis by bank & other suppliers of short term loans.

This is made possible due to inter firm comparison & comparison with the industry averages. It should be reasonably expected that the performance of a firm should be in broad conformity with that of the industry to which it belongs. whether the movement is favorable or unfavorable.5] Inter firm comparison: Ratio analysis not only throws light on the financial position of firm but also serves as a stepping-stone to remedial measures.

The advantages of ratio analysis can be summarized as follows:  Ratios facilitate conducting trend analysis. operating efficiency. These limitations are described below: 1] Information problems  Ratios require quantitative information for analysis but it is not decisive about analytical output.

Changes in accounting policy may affect the comparison of results between different accounting years as misleading. there is need to consider the changes in technology. not qualitative information.  When comparing performance over time.  Ratios provide only quantitative information. comparisons can be distorted by changes in the price level.  Ratios are calculated on the basis of past financial statements.  Selective application of government incentives to various companies may also distort intercompany comparison. 3] Inter-firm comparison  Companies may have different capital structures and to make comparison of performance when one is all equity financed and another is a geared company it may not be a good analysis. The movement in performance should be in line with the changes in price. They do not indicate future trends and they do not consider economic conditions.
