## ADVANCED QUESTIONS ON RATIO ANALYSIS

Question 1:

X Co. has made plans for the next year. It is estimated that the company will employ
total assets of Rs. 8,00,000. 50 per cent of the assets being financed by borrowed capital
at an interest cost of 8 per cent per year. The direct costs for the year are estimated at
Rs. 4,80,000 and all other operating expenses are estimated at Rs. 80,000. The goods will
be sold to customers at 150 per cent of the direct costs. Tax rate is assumed to be 50 per
cent.

Calculate:
a. Net Profit Margin/NP Ratio
b. ROA

d. Return on owner’s equity [Hint – Return on shareholder’s funds]

Question 2:

cent and a current ratio of 2.5. The firm’s current liabilities are Rs. 96,000, Inventories as Rs.
48,000 and cash as Rs. 16,000.

## a. Determine the average inventory to be carried by the firm, if an inventory turnover of 5

times is expected.

## b. Determine the average collection period if the opening balance of debtors is

intended to be Rs. 80,000.

To Question 4:

## 1. Total debt = 0.60 * Owner’s Equity

= 0.60 * 1,00,000 = 60,000

## 2. Fixed Assets = 0.60 * Owner’s Equity

= 0.60 * 1,00,000 = 60,000

## 3. Total Capital = Total Debt + Owner’s Equity

= 60,000 + 1,00,000 = 1,60,000

## 4. Total Assets = Current Assets + Fixed Assets = 1,60,000 = Total Capital

Since FA = 60,000, Thus, 1,00,000

## 5. Assets Turnover = 2 times

Sales/TA = 2 times Thus, x/1,60,000 = 2 and therefore Sales = 3,20,000

## 6. Inventory turnover ratio = 8 times

COGS or Sales / Average Inventory => 3,20,000/x = 8 and therefore Inventory = 40,000

## 7. Cash = Current Assets - Inventory (assumption)

1,00,000 – 40,000 = 60,000

## 8. Current Debt = 0.40 * Total Debt

0.40 * 60,000 = 24,000

## 9. Long-term debt = Total debt – current debt

60,000 – 24,000 = 36,000

Therefore,

## Sources/Liabilities Amount (Rs.) Applications/Assets Amount (Rs.)

Current Debt 24,000 Cash 60,000
Long-term Debt (+) 36,000 Inventory (+) 40,000
Total Debt 60,000 Total Current Assets 1,00,000
Owner's Equity (+) 1,00,000 Fixed Assets (+) 60,000
TOTAL LIABILITIES 1,60,000 TOTAL ASSETS 1,60,000
