CHAPTER – 2 REVIEW OF LITERATURE

REVIEW OF LITERATURE
Ball and Brown (1968) were the first to highlight the relationship between stock prices and information disclosed in the financial statements. Empirical research on the value relevance has its roots in the theoretical framework on equity valuation models.

Ohlson(1995) depicted in his work that the value of a firm can be expressed as a linear function of book value, earnings and other value relevant information. Financial statement lending is rarely used for small business lending as it looks at the audited financial statement of companies that have a access to public credit market. In contrast, relationship lending, is based on “soft” information about the potential borrower. In other words, banks rely on the subjective information about a borrower that they received out of the lasting relationships rather than on financial condition of the borrowers. Another indication of relationship lending as reported by Cavalluzzo, Cavalluzzo, and Wolken (2001) is that 84 percent of the loans received by small businesses came from lending institutions located in the same city. The median distance between the firm and the lender was just three miles.

Allen Berger (1999) defines three conditions that should be met for relationship-based finance to occur. First, information other than data from financial statements, collateral and other public resources is collected. Second, the information is collected via continuous communication between the lender and the small business, the customers of the small business, and local community. Third, the information is confidential and can be used only for making further lending decisions.

3.4

SAMPLING PROCEDURE Sampling procedure is adopted when secondary data are not available for the problem under study. As my study was mainly on secondary data and it was easily available to me. Therefore, no sampling procedure was applicable. To fulfill the objectives financial analysis tools namely Ratio Analysis has been choosen.

CHAPTER – 4 THEORETICAL ASPECTS

4.1

FINANCIAL ANALYSIS

The term “Financial Analysis” also known as analysis and interpretation of financial statements refers to the process of determination of financial strengths and weaknesses of the firm by establishing strategic relationship between the items of profit and loss account and balance sheet. Purpose:• - Financial performance To use financial statements to evaluate an organization. Past Present Future - Financial Position Solvency Growth Earning Capacity • To have a means of comparative analysis across time in terms of In a Company Inter Company Industrial Averages • To apply analytical tools and techniques to financial statements to obtain useful information to aid decision making. Financial Analysis is the starting point for making plans, before using sophisticated forecasting and planning procedure. Moreover, analysis and interpretation both are complementary to each others. Interpretation requires analysis while analysis is useless without interpretation. Financial analysis involves comparison for similar figures in different periods, different figures in the same period and similar figures of different enterprises.

Information provided by financial statements is not an end in itself as no meaningful conclusions can be drawn from statements alone. The information is made useful through analysis and interpretation. 4.2 TOOLS OF FINANCIAL ANALYSIS

There are number of methods and techniques that are used to analyses the financial position of a firm. The following are the methods that are generally used for analysis:1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. Ratio Analysis Trend Analysis Comparative Statement Analysis Common Size Statement Analysis Fund Flow Statement Analysis Cash flow Statement Analysis CVP Analysis The tools that I have used in my study are    Ratio Analysis Trend Analysis Comparative Statement Analysis The theoretical details of these are discussed as follows. 4.3 OBJECTIVES ANALYSIS:To assess the earning capacity or profitability of the firm. To assess the operational efficiency and managerial effectiveness. To assess the short term as well as long term solvency position of the firm. To identify reasons for the change in profitability and financial position of the firm. To make inter firm comparisons. To make forecasts of future prospects. To assess progress over a period of time. AND IMPORTANCE OF FINANCIAL STATEMENT

To help in decision making and control. To provide information for taking credit. 4.4 PROCEDURE FOR FINANCIAL STATEMENT ANALYSIS

Broadly speaking there are three steps involved in the analysis of financial statements. These are:i. ii. iii. Selection:- It involves selection of information [data relevant to the purpose of analysis of financial statements]. Classification:- It involves methodicating the way of classifying the data. Interpretation:conclusions. Steps 1st Step:- Analyst should acquitain himself with principles postulates of accounting. 2nd Step:- Extent of analysis should be determined. Objectives of analysis should be set. 3rd Step:- Financial data given in statements should be re-organized and re-arranged. 4th Step:- Relationship should be established with the help of financial tools like ratio, trend etc. 5th Step:- Interpret the information. 6th Step:- Draw conclusion in the form of report. 4.5 COMPARATIVE STATEMENT ANALYSIS It involves drawing inferences and

The comparative financial statements are statements of the financial position at different periods of time. The elements of financial position are shown in a comparative form so as to give an idea of financial position at two or more periods. From practical point of view, generally, two financial statements (balance sheet and income statement) are prepared in comparative form for financial analysis purposes. Not only the comparison of the figures of two periods but also relationship between balance sheet and income statements enables an indepth study of financial position and operative results. The two comparative statements are:-

i. ii. i.

Comparative Balance sheet Income Statement

Comparative Balance Sheet :- The comparative balance sheet is the study of the trend of the same items or group of items in two or more balance sheets of the same business enterprise on different dates. The changes can be observed and reflect the conducts of business.

ii.

Comparative Income Statement:- The income statement gives the results of the operations of a business. The comparative income statement gives an idea of the progress of a business over a period of time. The changes in absolute data money values and percentages can be determined to analyse the profitability of the business. Akal Sales Pvt. Ltd.. . uses comparative statements to access its financial performance for current year with past years performance. It also uses the technique for making inter company comparison. 4.6 TREND ANALYSIS

The financial statements can be analysed by computing trends of series of information. This method determines the direction upwards or downwards and involves the computation of the percentage relationship of each statements item base to the same item in the base year. The information for a number of years is taken and one year, generally, the first years is taken as a base year. The figures of the base years are taken as 100 and the trend ratios for other years are calculated on the basis of the base year. The analyst is able to see the trend of figures whether upwards or downwards. Procedure for calculating trends 1. 2. 3. One year is taken as base year. Generally, the first year is taken as base year. The figure of base year are taken as 100. Trend percentages are calculated in relation to the base year.

If a figure in other year is less than the figure in base year the trend percentage will be less than 100 and it will be more than 100 if figure is more than the base year figure. Each year figure is divided by the base years figure. The base period should be carefully selected and should be a normal period. Akal Sales Pvt. Ltd.. . uses trend analysis techniques to estimate its progress in corporate world. 4.7 INTRODUCTION TO RATIO ANALYSIS

The ratio analysis is one of the most powerful tools of financial analysis. It is the process of establishing and interpreting various ratios [quantitative relationship between figure and groups of figures]. It is with the help of ratios that the financial statements can be analyzed more clearly and decisions made from such analysis. Nature of Ratio Analysis Ratio Analysis is a technique of analysis and interpretation of financial statements. It is the process of establishing and interpreting various ratios for helping in making certain decisions. However, ratio analysis is not an end in itself. It is only a means of better understanding of financial strengths and weaknesses of a firm. There are a number of ratios which can be calculated from the information given in the financial statements but the analyst has to select the appropriate data and calculate only a few appropriate ratios keeping in mind the objectives of analysis. Steps involved in the Ratios Analysis i. ii. iii. Selection of relevant data from the financial statements depending upon the objective of the analysis. Calculation of appropriate ratios from the above data. Comparison of calculated ratios with the ratios of the same firm in the past or the ratios developed from projected financial statements or the ratios of some

others firms or comparison with the ratios of the industry to which the firm belongs. iv. Interpretation of the ratios.

Use or Significance of Ratio Analysis It is with the help of ratios that the financial that the financial statements can be analyzed more clearly and decision made from such analysis. The use of ratios is not confined to financial managers only. There are different parties interested in the ratio analysis for knowing the financial position of a firm for different purposes. With the use of financial ratios, one can measure the financial condition of a firm and can point out whether the condition it strong, good, questionable or poor. (a). 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. (b). Managerial uses of ratio analysis Helps in decision making – from the information provided in the financial statements. Helps in communicating – the financial strength weakness of a firm in an understandable manner to the interested parties. Helps in co-ordination – for efficient and effective business management. Helps in control – standard ratios can be based upon Performa financial statements and deviations, if any, can be checked and removed by taking timely actions. Helps in financial forecasting and planning - planning is looking ahead and the ratios calculated for a number of years work as a guide for the future. Other uses – budgetary control, standard costing etc. Utility to shareholders/Investors An investors in the company will like to assess the financial position of the concern where he is going to invest his first interest will be the security of his investment and then the return in the form of dividend or interest. He will assess the value of fixed assets and loans raised against them. (c). Utility to creditors

The creditors or supplies extend short term credit to the concern. They are interested to know whether financial position of the concern warrants their payments at the specified time or not. If the current assets are quite sufficient to meet current liabilities then the creditors will not hesitate in extending credit facilities. (d). Utility to employees The employees are also interested in the financial position of the concern especially profitability. Their wage increases and amount of fringe benefits are related to the volume of profits earned by the concern like gross profit, operating profit, net profit ratios etc. (e). Utility to Government Government is interested to know the overall strength of the industry. Various financial statements published by industrial units are used to calculate ratios for determining short term, long term, and overall financial position of the concerns. Government may base it’s future policies on the basis of industrial information. (f) Tax Audit requirements Section 44 AB was inserted in Income Tax Act by the Finance Act, 1984. Under this section, every assessor engaged in any business and having a turnover or gross receipts exceeding Rs. 40 lakhs in required to get the accounts audited by chartered accountant and submit the tax audit report. Clause 32 of Income Tax Act requires that the following accounting ratios should be givem: (i). Gross profit/turnover (ii). Net profit/turnover (iii). Stock in trade /turnover (iv). Material consumed/Financial goods produced Limitations Of Ratio Analysis Though ratios are simple to calculate and easy to understand yet they suffer from some serious limitations.

1. Limited use of a single ratio:- A single ratio, usually does nor convey much of a sense. To make a better interpretation a number of ratios have to be calculated which is likely to confuse the analyst than help in making any meaningful conclusion. 2. Lack of adequate standards:- There are no well accepted standards or rules of thumb for all ratios which can be accepted as norms. 3. Inherent limitations of Accounting:- Like financial statements, ratios also suffer from the inherent weakness of accounting records such as their historical nature. Ratios of past are not necessarily true indicators of the future. 4. Change of accounting procedure:- Change in accounting procedure by a firm often makes ratio analysis misleading eg. a change in valuation methods of inventories from FIFO and LIFO increases the cost of sales and reduces considerably the value of closing stocks which makes stock turnover ratio to be lucrative and unfavourable gross profit ratio. 5. Window Dressing:- Financial statements can easily be window dressed to present a better picture of its financial and profitability position to outsiders. Hence, one has to be very careful in making decisions from ratio calculated from which such statements. 6. Personal Bias:- Ratio are only means to financial analysis and not an end itself. Ratio has to be interpreted and different people may interpret the same ratio in different ways. 7. Incomparable:- Not only the industries differ on their nature but also the firms of a similar business widely differ in their size and accounting procedures etc. Hence, it makes comparison of ratios difficult and misleading. 8. Absolute Figure Distortive:- Ratios devoid of absolute figures may prove Distortive as ratio analysis is primely a quantitive analysis and not a qualitative analysis. 9. Price level changes:- while making ratio analysis, no consideration is made to changes in price levels and this make the interpretation of ratios invalid. 10. Ratios no substitutes:- Ratio analysis is merely a tool of financial statement analysis. They are meaningless in absence of such statements. 11. Cures not conclusion:- Ratios provide only dues to analyst and not final conclusions. They are to interpreted by experts and there are no standards rules of interpretation. 4.4 CLASSIFICATION OF RATIOS

In view of various users of ratios, there are many types of ratios which can be calculated from the information given in the financial statements. Eg. a supplier of goods of a firm on credit or a banker advancing a short term loan to a firm, is interested primilarly in short term paying capacity of the firm or say its liquidity.

Classification according to significance or importance

The ratios have also been classified according to their significance or importance. Some ratios are more important than others and a firm may classify them as primary and secondary ratios. The primary ratios are one which are of prime importance to a concern. The other ratios which support or explain the primary ratios are called secondary ratios. eg. return on capital employed is a primary ratio and relationship of operating profit to sales or relationship of sales to total assets is a secondary ratio.

Akal Sales Pvt. Ltd. . uses ratio analysis along with trend and comparative statement analysis to judge it’s past, present and future performance. To see it’s growth it’s ditches and how to overcome item. It uses it to see it’s solvency, liquidity and profitability position.

RATIO ANALYSIS OF Akal Sales Pvt. Ltd..

6.1

Analysis of Ratios

a.

Liquidity Ratio Liquidity refers to the ability of the concern to meet it’s current obligations as and when these become due liquidity ratios, by establishing a relationship between cash and other current assets to current liabilities, provide a quick measure of liquidity. The failure to meet it’s obligations due to lade of sufficient liquidity, will results in poor credit worthiness. A high degree of liquidity is also bad, idle assets earn nothing. Therefore, there must be balance between high liquidity and lack of liquidity. To measure the liquidity of a firm, the following ratios can be calculated.

1.

Current Ratio:- Indicates the availability of current assets in rupee for every one rupee of current liabilities. Current Assets Current ratio = -----------------------Current Liabilities Current Ratio of Akal Sales Pvt. Ltd. Years Current Assets Current Liabilities Current Ratio Interpretation A ratio equal or near to the rule of thumb of 2:1 i.e. current assets double the current liabilities is considered to be satisfactory. So, in the year 2010, 11, the company has a very high current ratio which is not favourable. But in the year 2012, it has a favourable current ratio. 2010 36403063.42 11801247.73 3.08 2011 32557122.96 9441802.71 3.45 2012 40810103.51 14609005.03 2.79

2.

Quick Ratio:- This ratio is also known as acid test ratio. It refers to the ability of the firm to pay its short term obligations as and when they become due. An asset is said to be liquid if it can be converted into cash within a short period of time without lose of value. Quick Assets = Quick Assets -----------------------Current Liabilities Quick Ratio of Akal Sales Pvt. Ltd. Years Quick Assets Current Liabilities Quick Ratio Interpretation 2010 30584146.62 11801247.73 2.59 2011 23952272.17 9441802.71 2.54

Quick Assets = Total Current assets - [Inventory + prepaid expense]

As a rule of thumb, quick ratio of 1:1 is considered satisfactory. If quick assets are equal to current liabilities then the concern may be able to meet it’s short turn obligations.

The quick ratio of Akal Sales Pvt. Ltd.. is not fluctuating much. But they may considered satisfactory as the quick assets are sufficient to pay its current liabilities. 3. Absolute Liquid Ratio:- some authorities are of the opinion that the absolute liquid ratio should also calculated together with current ratio and acid test ratio so as to exclude even receivables from current assets and find out absolute liquid assets. Absolute liquidities Absolute liquid ratio =-----------------------Current Liabilities Absolute liquid assets = Cash and bank + short term securities Absolute liquid Ratio of Akal Sales Pvt. Ltd.

Current Assets movement or efficiency ratio activity ratios measure the efficiency or effectiveness with which a firm manage it’s resources or assets. These ratios are also called turnover ratios because they indicate the speed with which the assets are converted or turned over into sales.

1.

Inventory Turnover Ratio:- It indicates whether the inventory has efficiently used or not. The purpose is to see whether only the required minimum funds have been locked up in inventory. It indicates the number of times the stock has been turned over during the period. Net Sales ------------Inventory

The inventory has been disposed off in 40 days on an average in 2010 and in 55 days in 2011.

2.

Debtors/Receivables turnover Ratio:- Debtors velocity indicates the number of times the debtors are turned over during a year. Generally, the higher value of debtors turnover, the more efficient is the management of debtors/sales or more liquid are the debtors. Debtors Turnover ratio = Total credit sales -----------------------Debtors 2010 51986696.62 29495056.01 1.76 2011 50928182.74 23350333.58 2.18 2012 70400766.12 30582072.33 2.30

CHAPTER – 7 CONCLUSION

7.1

CONCLUSION Finance is the basic pillar on which the structure of an industrial undertaking is based. This pillar should be properly placed. A hot working environment and attractive incentives for the achievement of targets have obviously created ideal condition in Akal Sales Pvt. Ltd. for both the management and workers. From the very beginning, the profitability position of the concern was improving though sometimes like in 2010 the company had to face losses ; but that was due to the period of depression in economy. Due costly raw material, low technology, high labour cost; the production cost is high. But still the company has generated profits. This shows the efficiency of the management. From the analysis of the financial conditions of the firm, I hereby conclude that any reduction in operation cost as a result of improved technology, efficient & effective management of finance or better source of material would improve the profitability, liquidity and solvency of the organization.

7.2

3.

Company should install modernized of equipments and machines in production plants and new techniques should also be used to reduced cost and improve quality.

4. 5. 6.

Recruitment should be made on merit basis, qualifications & efficiency. Improve co-operations & co-ordinations among departments. Establishment of separate marketing department.
