Finance is the life blood of business.Without finance,the heart
and brain of business cannot function implying thereby its natural
death.right from conceiving the idea of birth of a business to its liq-
uidation finance is required.It is a prerequisite for obtaining physical
resources, which are needed to perform productive activities and car-
rying business operations such as sales,pay compensations,reserve
for contingencies(unascertained liabilities)and so on.So,finance is the
pivot around which the whole business operations cluster.
According to F.W.paish:-“Finance may be defined as the position
of money at the time it is wanted”.
Financial means procuring sources of money supply and allocation
of these sources on the basis of forecasting monetary requirements of
the business.the word ‘management’refers to planning,organization,
co-ordination and control of human activities and physical resources
for achieving the objectives of an enterprise.
Financial management refers to the management of fi-
nance.It is the effective & effective utilization of financial resources.
According to Weston & Brigham:-financial management is anarea
of financial decision making harmonizing individual motives& en-
terprise goals.


Some of the importance of the financial management is as follws:
for all the business activities.Business activities shouls be not only
harmonized but also planning determination implementation offer
analysis of finance.All activities revolve around the finance. So fi-
nance planning and control are important function.
ment provides a sound base to all managerial decisions.Financial
management is the focal point in the process of decision making
.Production,sales, employees,research & development decisions are
based on financial management.
3) IMPROVE PROFITABILITY:-Profitability of the concern purely
depends on the effectiveness and proper utilization of funds by the
business concern .Financial management helps to improve the profit-
ability position of the concern with help of strong financial control
devices such as budgetary control,ratio analysis and cost volume
profit analysis.
4) BASIS OF AMANAGERIAL PROCESS:-financial management
is the basis of whole management process,such as planning,co ordi-
nation and control.According to sound financial planning all other
plans are executed & controlled.
5) MEASURE OF PERFORMANCE:-financial management deals
with risk & uncertainty factors which are directly hit by profitability
& risk.Thus,financial management is needed for maintaining proper
balance in risk & uncertainty.


In the last to last chapter we studied five of the tool available in the
tool available in the tool kit of a financial analyst namely multi step income
statement,horizontal analysis ,common sized analysis,trend analysis and
analytical balance sheet and applied them to analyse the financial statement
of capol ltd and libertyeltd. We can upon some interesting findings based
on that analysis .what you must have observed is that in all the cases we
analysed the two financial statements ,that is,balance sheet and profit and
loss statement,almost in isotation .In reality however,the two statements are
totally interrelated and dependent on each other . this is ,despite their mer-
its, one of their limitations and thence the need for amore comprehensive
tool of analysis,that is Ratio Analysis.One of the ratio that is Eps has been
analysed in the last chapter.
Definition of Ratio analysis:-
Ratio Analysis is a comprehensive tool of analysis in that it seets to meas-
ure and establish cause and effects the relationships between either two
items of balance sheet , say current ratio ,that is ratio of current assests to
current liabilities, or of profit and loss account, say net profit margin that is
ratio of pat to net sales or both the balance sheet and the profit and loss ac-
count say return on net worth that is ratio efficiency protitability and capi-
tal market valuation of a company.


That does not mean that it can be used independently of other tools and techniques . to initiate you in the subject it is neces- sary to take up abridged finacial statements. ratio analysis .hence the need for a full annual report .Ratio analysis is thus a relative and more focusedanalysis of financial statements.particularly the com- putation part may accquire numerous reasonable and logical assumption depending upon the information available.because absolute figure comparison will lead to now where  Intra firm compari8son for the same reson  Comparison against industry benchmarks  Analysis of chronological performance over a long period As you will observe later in this chapter . 4 . Ratio analysis is of particular significance in the following cases  Inter firm comparison.while analysing the ratios of industries Ltd. however..It leads to an expansion and futher analysis of the findings recorded through other tools.At the same time.

Ratio Analysis is part of the fi- nance statement analysis. The company’s Financial Information is contained in the basic finan- cial statements i. This technique is very much usefully in the assessment of working capital requirement and also to know the performance of company. production. marketing and personal manage- ment. This is the region why the ratio analysis is done. A ratio is relationship between to variable unless to variables are compared it cannot be calculated which one is superior to other. needs finance to carry on its operations and to achieve its targets. medium or small. 5 . trading and profit & loss account.e. which helps in know in the companies position to the outsiders. By us- ing the these ratios we can review the at how much working capital are in- vested in current assets. INTRODUCTION The success any organization mainly depends upon four functional areas of management namely finance. Every enterprise either big. balance sheet. Finance is defined as the provision of money at the time it is re- quired.

Aratio analysis is analyzing the information by comparing two different vari- ables. it is to be noticed that there is a basic limitation of the tra- ditional financial statement comprising the balance sheet and the profit & loss account i. they do not give all the information regarding financial operation of the firm. other people who these with the company. However.e. Accordingly RATIOS not only indicate the present position. Using various ratios we can find out the liquidity and solvency posi- tion of the company. May indicate not only the financial position and pre- cautions but also the past policies and actions they have caused. So ratio analysis is a technique that helps these people to deal with the company. investors..These statements are very useful for evaluating the financial position and performance of the of a firm. 6 .it is a widely used tool of financial analysis and interpretation of ratios should give experienced . skilles analysts a better understanding of the financial condition and performance of the firm than they would obtain from the analysis of financial data alone . In practical use these statements does not give much more detailed information what creditors. Ratio Analysisis a powerful tool of financial analysis. they also indicate the causes leading up the large extent for in- stance accounts ratio.

Ratio Analysis the principle tool of finance statememt analysis. They reveal the relationship in more meaningful way which enables to draw better conclusions. But comparing ratios merely does not add any information of profits and sales. referred to as ratio Analysis. The relationship can be expressing items that are related with each other are for the purpose of financial analysis . 7 . It is also defined as the systematic use of ratio is to interpret the finan- cial statement so that the strengths and weakness of afirm as well as its historical performance and current financial condition can be de- termined. it is the process of analyzing the relation between two financial variables.

A creditor can establish the credit rating & an investor can plan buying and selling of shares on the basis of safety of principal earnings.  The study is also beneficial to employees and offers motivation by showing how actively they are contributing for company growth.  By using the technique of ratio analysis the labor leaders reveal how the company stands in relation to labor & welfare. 8 . NEED OF THE STUDY  The study has great significance and provides benefit to various par- ties who are directly or indirectly connected with the company.  A banker can judge the liquidity position.

liquidity and leverage and activity ratios only.  The study consists of only the past performance of Coromondel Agro Products and Oils Limited (CAPOL)  The study does not consist of the future trend analysis. Ratio Analysis is done with se- lected ratios.  The study is based on secondary data only. SCOPE OF THE STUDY The study is based on analysis of the historical data & information contained in company published income statements & balance sheets for a period of 5 years from 2011-12 to 2015-16. 9 .  Only the ratios concerned with profitability.

profitability and efficiency position of the company. OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY The major objective of the study is to know about financial strengths & weakness of Coromondel Agro Products and Oils Limited (CAPOL) through financial ratio analysis.  To make appropriate suggestions and measures for the effective work- ing of the company. staff devel- opment and career progression. The main objectives of study are:  To understand the liquidity.  To make comparison between the ratios during different periods.  To assess levels and sources of job satisfaction and job dissatisfaction  To explore their ideas on the development of higher education over the next twenty years.  To evaluate and analyze various facts of the financial performance of the company.  To examine the opportunities available to them for training.  To understand the impact of broader changes in higher education on the working lives of administrative and support staff and in particular on their roles and responsibilities. 10 .

2.Lack of Adequate standards:There are no well accepted standards or rules to thumb for all ratios which can be accepted as norms .Limited use of single ratios:A single ratio usually does not convey much of asense. 11 . ratios also suffer from the inherent weakness of accounting records such as their historical nature ratios of the past are not necessarily true indi- cators of the future renders interpretation of the ratios difficult. LIMITATIONS OF THE STUDY The ratio analysis is one of the most powerful tools of financial management throught ratios are to calculate and easy to understand they suffer from some serious limitations.Inherent Limitations of Accounting:Like financial statement. 3.To make a better interpretation a number of ratios have to be cal- culated which is likely to confuse the analyst then help him in making any meaningful Conclusion. 1.Personal Bias:ratios are only means of financial analysis and not an endin itself ratios have to be interpreted and different people may interpret the same ratio in different ways.

Primary Data: It is collected from the direct interaction with the financial per- sons and other officials of the company. To some extent this method is also used in natural sciences. including questionnaires and telephone interviews in market research. That information was utilized for calculating performance and based on that. 12 . In natural sciences observation is conducted in natural settings while in the social sciences an artificial situation can also be created where the observer can observe the participants. 1. interpretations were made. The distinction between primary research and secondary research is crucial among market-research professionals  TOOLS OF PRIMARY DATA:  Observation: is the most commonly used method of data col- lection in the humanities and social sciences. METHODOLOGY OF THE STUDY The information is collected from secondary sources during the project. amongst others. It is often undertaken after researchers have gained some insight into an issue by review- ing secondaryresearch or by analyzing previously collecte primary data It can be accomplished through various methods.  Primary research: involves the collection of original primary data by researchers. or experiments and direct observations in the physical sciences.

Interviews are expensive as compared to other meth- ods of data collection.  Questionnaire: is one of the most commonly used methods of data collection in research.Some of the information regarding theoretical aspects is collection through referring standards text books. Questionnaires are formulated to get to the point information on any subject area. Due to this reason it becomes costly as well as time consuming. Interviews: are another important method of primary data col- lection. 13 .  2. Secondary Data: Most of the calculations are made on the financial statements of the company. In the interview the interviewer collects information from each respondent independently. The question- naire is an inexpensive method of data collection as compared to other methods of primary research.

Vegetable oils and fats are princi- pally used for human consumption but are also used in animal feed. followed by chop- ping or grinding. The different kinds of edible vegetable oils include: Olive oil. Palm oil. Sunflower oil. The following are the steps involved in the processing of oils. The oils and fats are extracted from a variety of fruits. Grape seed oil. soyabean or sunflowr oils. all oil seeds have enzymes that can influence quality. Step1: Preparation of seeds begins with heating and dehulling. freeing the oil to make the penetra- tion of solvents into the cells easier. corn. Pumpkin seed oil. Sesame oil and rice bran oil. During processing. Penult oil. The generic term “vegetable oil” when used to label a cooking oil product refers to a blend of a variety of oils often based on palm. Safflower oil. Canola oil. for medicinal purposes and for certain technical applications. This is accomplished by rolling or flaking. Processing of Cooking Oil in India: The vegetable oil processing industry the extraction and processing of oils and fats from vegetable sources. 15 . which is liquid at room tempera- ture. to break the cell walls. seeds. Many other kinds of vegetable oils are also used for cooking. and nuts. Corn oil. Soya beam oil. In addition.

The primary objective of this step is to produce a clean. if the chemical ex- traction method is used. the oil is filtered and sold as unrefined oil. the oil undergoes further refining. but more often. the oils are steam heat- ed to evaporate the solvents at temperatures around 3000 F. 16 . At this temperature. Step2: Extraction from seeds is accomplished either by mechanically press- ing or by mixing such gasoline-like solvents as hexane and heptanes (which are lung irritants and nerve depressants). de- pending on t he seed type. oxazolinine thiones and other compounds. the oil can now be bottled and sold as “unrefined oil” in health food stores. with canola or rapeseed. crude oil product. Most of the sol- vents are evaporated. sulpate. the oil is extremely flammable and some factories have been known to blow up or catch on fire. mechanically pressed seeds are subject to addi- tional heating during the “auger” process. where the average temperature reaches about 1200C (2480) with higher temperature and pressures produc- ing more oil. After be- ing mashed and cooked for up to two hours at varying temperatures. Oil desig- nated for more refining goes through more processing procedures. at this stage. Some of these compounds act as a catalyst poison during hydro generation of oil for margarine production. the enzyme myrosinase can influ- ence quality because it catalyses hydrolysis of glucosinolates to give glu- cose.

The hydrated gums are vacuum dried for crude lecithin processing. or greenish hue. Alkali solutions combine with the free fatty acids to form soaps and also help to remove toxic substances that are natu- rally present in many plants. At this stage. It satisfies export oil requirements for a product free of impurities that settle out during shipment. which is also deemed undersirable Degumming coverts the phospha- tides to hydrated gums which are insoluble in oil and readily separated as sludge. yellow. increasing the neu- tral oil contained in the soap stock. or alkalis used in order to remove phosphates.Step 3: Degumming is a treatment of crude oils and water. This process also involves the addition of phosphoric acid and water at temperatures of 600C (1400F) The Industry’s rationale for the degumming process is as follows: It is necessary to remove the lecithin. Caustic soda. waxes and other impurities. It substantially decreases refinery waste load because of the lower neutral oil lossess and the reduction of gums discharged. the oil still has its pigmentation of red. Gum removal prior to alkali refining often improves yield because the phosphates can acts as emulsifiers in a caustic solution. Temperatures again have reached 750C (1670).

Degummed oil is more suitable to this physical refining technique because of the significant reduction in such nonvolatile impurities as phosphatides and metallic prooxidants. and mixed with a type of clay substance that will absorb the unwanted pigment. forming conjugated fatty acids. sterols.It prepares the oil for steam refining. Most of the spent clay is then filtered from the oil. and products or oxidation formed during the bleaching stage. In the bleaching process. trans acids begin to form. which removes undersirable odors and tastes from the oil. monoglycerides. including residues.2250 C. Above 1600C (3200F). Above 2000C (3920F) trans fatty acids multiply substantially and above 220 0C. 18 . Step4: Bleaching oils is necessary because they have a strong yellow or reddish pigment that is considered undesirable. It results in improved acidulation performance. Step5: Deodorization is done through pressurized steam distillation at tem- peratures of 2400-2700 C (464-5180F) for 30 to 60 minutes. toxins. Note: When temperatures go above 1500C (3020F) unsaturated fatty acids become mutagenic. Deodorizing reduces the content of many other substances. During this phase. some of the plyunsaturated fatty acids may undergo oxidation and toxic peroxides. for about 4 hours. the trans fatty acid explodes. beta carotene and tocopherols (Vitamin E). oils heated to temperatures of 1750 . The soap stock from alkali refining is easier to adulate because of lower emulsifier content and the ac- id water has less impact on the waste water treatments systems. as well as removing sulphur.

Major Features of Edible Oil Economy: There are two major features. other dominant feature which has had significant impact on the present status of edible oilseeds/oils industry has been the program of liber- alization under which the Government’s economic policy allows greater freedom to the open market and encourages healthy competition and self regulation rather than protection and control.For example. The production of oilseeds declined to 20. therefore. soyabean and rice bran. This is evident by the very impressive increased in the production of oilseeds from about 11.

The Central Govt is aware of the production of edible oils is a highly unorganized industry. Orissa. The controls exercised were stringent and covered both the manufacturer and the dealer. namely (i) Vegetable Oil Products (Control) Order. It was decided that in future. Karnataka and Rajasthan have started implementation of the Packaging order. Delhi. Government had carried out a through review and intensive consulta- tions with the industry. it would be sufficient if control is limited to the manufacturing stage only.The power for implementation of the order is basically delegated to the State Governments. 1975. It is in view of the situa- tions that the State Governments have been empowered to exempt any edi- ble oils from the provisions of this order in specific circumstances. 1998: The Vanaspathi industry was controlled by this department through two control orders under the Essential Commodities Act. For the smooth implementation of the packaging order. Looking to the status of the vegetable products industry in the coun- try. efforts are be- ing made to remove some operational difficulties. A substantial quantity of oil produc- tion is in the small scale or unorganized sector. Andhra Pradesh. Vegetable Oil Products (Regulations) Order. 1995. 33 . The other States have also initiated action and appointed Registering Authority and Inspecting officer for implementation of this or- der. The State Governments namely Tamilnadu.

These two Orders were issued at a time when the vanaspati industry was at a primitive stage and strict control over manufacture and distribution of the product was required.

1967: The order is basically a quality control order to ensure that the sol- vent extracted oils particular are not reached to the consumers for consump- tion before the same are refined and conformed to the quality standards specified in the order for the purpose. reduces the area of control and limits the role of this Department to the manufacturing stage of the vegetable oil product. The standards of quality prescribed under the Sched- ule have been tightened and all requirements which were vague and non- measurable and thus open to arbitrary interpretation have been done away with.Therefore. Standards for the solvent (hexane). have also specified so as to eliminate possible contamination of oil from the solvent used. Salient Features:  Procedure simplified  Transparency in operation  Minimizing area of control  Consumer Protection through quality assurance  Requirements which were vague and non-measurable done away with Solvent Extracted Oil. 1998. the earlier orders have been replaced with a single order called the Vegetable oil products (Regulation) order.

Role of Cotton seed oil in Indian Economy: The global production of cottonseed oil in the recent years has been at around 4-4. Currently. It is estimated that. China. more particu- larly groundnut oil. Cottonseed is traditional oilseed of India. In India the average pro- duction of cotton oil is around 4 lakh tons a year. United States and Paki- stan are the major producers of oil. viz. 39 . In India. the oil recovery from cottonseed is around 11% Gujarat is the major consumer of cottonseed oil in the country. United States (60000tons) is the major exporter of cottonseed oil. be- fore palm and soya oil became the only imports of the country. India.5 million tons. It is also used for the manufacture of vanaspathi. if sci- entific processing is carried out the oil production can be increased by an- other 4 lakh tons. while Canada is the major importer. The major seed producers. Around 2 lakh tons are traded globally every year. The price of cottonseed oil is generally depend- ent on the price behavior of other domestically produced oils. the country does not import cottonseed oil. India used to import around 30000 tons of crude cottonseed oil.

The process of cotton-seed involves the following: 1. Fuzzy fibers are extracted though this process.PRODUCTION PROCESS: Cotton seed is by-product of the cotton and is a valuable source of edible oil. At present the plant capacity is 150MT per day. sand and dust in the seed into the linters during the de-lining operating and their quality. Oil Mill 3. in the first cut fine cotton is extracted. There are first cut and second cut. Cotton-seed pre-processing 2. Refining COTTONSEED PRE-PROCESSING PLANT: The following operation are carried out in this plant are a) Seed cleaning b) Delinting c) Hulling and separation d) Lint cleaning e) Hull grinding A) SEED CLEANING: Cotton-seed has been taken directly by company without cleaning and will face problems. India is probably the oldest cotton producing in the world. Solvent Extraction 4. because of impurities like leaf particles. Oil has several industrial and other appli- cations. B) DELINTING: After cleaning the next stage in processing is delinting cotton from the cottonseed. 46 . whereas in the second cut rough cotton is extracted. cake linters and hulls.

E) HULL GRINDING: The extracted hull is made into fine powder through hull Grinding. The adjust- ment of the flow of the air through the hull and seed separator is important and requires considerable attention in the beginning. In order to carry this two prem- atic covering systems are provided fro the covering of the cycles of the first and second cut delinters.C) HULL AND SEED SEPARATION: The mixture of hulls and uncut seed from the upper tray of the shak- en separator is conveyed to that of the hull and seed separator. blocks of hull are powdered which can be used as Animal feeds and even in Aquaculture. DOUBLE DRUM HULL HEATER: The primary object of his hull beater is to remove fine following powder. In this conditioner slightly meat will be heated by the supply of steam. MECHANICAL EXCELLING PLANT: First meat will come from cottonseed per-processing plant to the oil mill. D) LINT CLEANING: The unusual impurities in the linter are trash sticks. The importance of proper cleaning is to make readily salable cotton. 47 . The meat will go to the tempo conditioner. Linters cannot be over emphasized. Heavy paddle shafts revolving in drums of perforated metal do the beating operation. This is designed to reduce the oil content in the hull. All these have the effect of lowering the cellulose content of the linters and thus degrading their quality.

Here the cake may have 6% to 8% of oil. from this tray meat will fall down is the kettle and inside there is a jacket to heat the meat. so the do-oiled cake is sent to the de-hexaning toaster. With the use of these two meats will go to the conveyors and the conveyors will give meat to all the xix expellers. then it goes to the “Solvent Extraction Plant (SEP). it will become small pieces. hexane is evaporated and these vapors are cooled and reused extraction.From this tempo conditioner will go be two sides that is one side there is a elevator and the other side there is a rotator lift.5% but this cake has the hexane. Thus meat will get crushed inside. Free-fatty Acid 2. Colour Pigments. steam will come down form the water-tube boiler and steam is fed to the kettle to heat meat with use of an alligators. SOLVENT EXTRACTION PLANT (SEP): Oil cake breaks into small pieces and that is discharged into the ex- tractor. meat will fall on the warm shaft. REFINER: Crude oil is having the following undesirable quantities 1. de-oiled cake is heated with steam. Gums and 3. Again cake will bend into broken cracks i.e. In extractor hexane (one of the petroleum product) is sprayed on the cake. Hexane is absorbed from oil cake and from the misella. 48 . In the toaster. Therefore oil will come to the bottom part of the machine and cake will come in the front part of the machine. After the ex- traction cake contains oil below 0. Top of Kettle is opened and there is a tray to collect the meat.

After neutralization oil is called Neutral Oil for reducing the colour of oil we are send it to the next process called bleaching. It smells bad. bubble is rotating with high speed due to that oil and soap are separated. to remove it. At temperature odors and some color pigments are evaporated. Bleaching c. After mixing oil is fed to the centrifuged in I. oil is de-odorized in de-odoriser.Refining is done in three stages: a. 49 . b) Bleaching: Neutral Oil is discharged to bleacher and it is heated with steam vac- uum.A and soap. The resultant oil is called bleached oil. De-odourisation a) Neutralization: Oil is mixed with sodium hydroxide. It is reacted with F. Neutralization b. After belaching oil is filtered for removing the particles. That oil is having the high colour (reddish). After de-odourisation oil is filtered and sent to storage tanks that are called Refined. c) De-odourisation: Bleached oil is charged upto 175 degree centigrade with the help of hot and cold steam under vacuum.F.

In fact. Ratios. As compared to other tools of financial analysis. Absolute figures are certainly valuable but their value increases manifold if they are studied with another through ratio analysis. Ratio analysis is an instrument for diagnosis of the data to be summarized and simplified. The ratio refers to the numerical or quantitative relationship between two variables or items.X weights 50Kg. Ratio analysis is an instrument for diagnosis of the financial health of an enterprise. 50 . The re- lationship of these two figures expressed mathematically is called a RA- TIO. THEORETICAL FRAME WORK INTRODUCTION: The company’s financial information is contained in Balance Sheet and Profit and loss account. Ratios enable the mass of data to be summarized and simplified. are full of meaning and communities the relative importance of the various items appearing in the Balance shet and profit and loss account. For instance. A ratio is calculated by dividing one item of the re- lationship between two variables or items. the capital employed is also seen. The need for ratios arises due to the fact that absolute figures are often misleading. Is lie fat? We cannot give answer unless we know his age and height Similarly a company’s profitability cannot be known unless to- gether with the amount of profit. However it is only in the light of other in- formation that the significance of a figure is realized. A ratio is calculated by dividing one item of relationship with the other. The figures contained in these statements are absolute and sometimes unconnected with one another. The ratio analysis is one of the most useful and common method of analyzing financial statements. An absolute figure does not convey much meaning. Mr.

It is worked out by dividing one number by another. are dump and are unable to communicate anything. MODE OF EXPRESSION: i) RATE. and obtained by dividing the former by the latter. The term ratio refers to the numerical or quantitative relationship between two figures. Ratios are relative form of finan- cial data and very useful technique to check upon the efficiency of a firm. The data given in financial statements. gross profit is 30% of sales. in absolute form. for example. Some ratios indicate the trend or progress or downfall of the firm. for example. which is the ratio between the two numerical facts over a period of time.MEANING OF RATIO: A ratio is only a comparison of the numerator with the denominator. Ratio analysis is an important and age old technique of financial analysis. Current Assets to Current Liability ratio is 3:1 iii) PERCENTAGE which is a special type of rate expressing the re- lationship in hundred it is arrived at by multiplying the quotient by 100. 51 . stock turnover is three times a year. Ratios are designed to show how one number is related to another. ii) PURE RATIO OR PROPORTION which is arrived at by the simple division of one number by another. A ratio is the relationship between two figures. for example.

i. The first task of the financial analysis is to select the infor-
mation relevant to the decision under consideration from the
statements and calculates appropriate ratios.

ii. The second step is to compare to calculated ratio with the ra-
tios of the same firm relating to past or with the industry rati-

iii. This step facilities in assessing success of failure of the firm.

iv. The third step involves interpretation, drawing of inferences
and report-writing.

v. Conclusions are drawn after comparison in the shape of report
or recommended course of action.



The inter relationship that exists among the different items appeared
in the financial statements, are revealed by accounting ratios. Ratio analysis
of a firm’s financial statements is of interest to a number of parties, mainly,
shareholders, creditors, financial executives etc. shareholders are interested
with earning capacity of the firm: creditors are interested in knowing the
ability of firm to meet its financial obligation: and financial executives are
concerned with evolving analytical tools that will measure and compare
costs, efficiency, liquidity and profitability with a view to making intelli-
gent decisions.

1. Aid to measure General Efficiency: Ratios enable the mass of ac-
counting data to be summarized and simplified. They acts an index
of the efficiency of the enterprise. As such they serve as an instru-
ment of management control.
2.Aid to measure Financial Solvency: Ratios are useful tools in the
hands of management and other concerned to evaluate the firms perfor-
mance over a period of time by comparing the present ratio with the past
ones. They point out firm’s liquidity position to meet its short term obli-
gation and long term solvency.
3.Aid in Forecasting and Planning: Ratio analysis is an invaluable aid
to management in the discharge of tits basic function such as planning,
forecasting, control etc. The ratio that are derived for analyzing and
scrutinizing the past result, helps the management to prepare budgets to
formulate policies and to prepare the future plan of action etc.


4.Facilitate decision-making:It throws light on the degree of efficiency
of the management and utilization of the assets and that is why it is
called surveyor of efficiency. They help management in decision mak-
5.Aid in corrective Action: Ratio analysis provides interfirm compari-
son. They highlight the factors associated with successful and unsuc-
cessful firms. If comparison shows an unfavorable variance, corrective
actions can be initiated. Thus, it helps the management to take correc-
tive action.
6.Aid in Intra Firm Comparison: Intra firm comparisons are facilitat-
ed. It is an instrument for diagnosis of financial health of an enterprise.
It facilitates the management to know whether the firm’s financial posi-
tion is improving or deteriorating by setting a trend with the help of ra-
7.Act as a Good Communication: Ratios are an effective means of
communication and play a vital role in informing the position of and
progress made by the business concern to the owners and their interest-
ed parties. The communication s by the use of simplified and summa-
rized ratios are more easy and understandable.
8. Evaluation of Efficiency: Ratio analysis is an effective instrument
which, when properly used, is useful to uses important characteristics of
business – liquidity, solvency, profitability etc. A study of these aspects
may enable conclusions to be drawn relating to capabilities of business.
9.Effective Tool: Ratio analysis help in making effective control of the
business measuring performance, control of cost etc. Effective control is
the keynote of better management. Ratio ensures secrecy.

A ratio defined as “the indicated quotient of two mathematical expressions” and as “the re- lationship between two or more things”. Such is the nature of all financial ratios. in turn. which can be. a ratio is used as an index or yardstick for evaluating the financial position and perfor- mance of a firm. A ratio is known as a symptom like blood pressure. Financial analysis is used as a device to analyse and interpret the financial health of enterprise.Nature of Ratio Analysis: Ratio analysis is a powerful tool of financial analysis. An accounting figure conveys meaning when it is related to some other relevant information. The absolute accounting figures reported in the financial statements do not pro- vide a meaningful understanding of the performance and financial perfor- mance of a firm.

Different authors have classified the ratios in varying groups. A) Classification by Statements B) Classification by users C) Classification according to importance D) Classification by purpose A) Classification by Statements: 58 . Financial ratios have been classified in several ways. The short- term creditor’s main interest is in the liquidity position or short-term sol- vency of the firm: long-term creditors are more interested in the long-term solvency and profitability analysis and the analysis of the firm’s financial conditions: management is interested in evaluating every activity of the firm because they have to protect the interest of all parties. It is a matter of great surprise that no uniformity has been achieved in this regard. A number of standpoints may be used as base for classifying the ratios. To illustrate. Thus accounting ratios may be classified on the following bases leading to somewhat over- lapping categories.

B) Classification by Users: This classification based on the parties who are interested in making the use of ratios. The Traditional classification is based on those statements from which information is obtained for calculating the ratios.

The following are the broad categories of account- ing ratios from functional point of view. ratios according to the purpose are more meaningful. The modern approach of classifying the ratios is accord- ing to purpose or object of analysis. CLASSIFICATION BY PURPOSE 60 . D) Classification by Purpose / Function: This is classification based on the purpose for which an analyst com- putes these ratios. For analysis. CLASSIFICATION BY IMPORTANCE Primary Ratios Secondary Ratio Egs: Egs: Assets Turnover. Expense Ratio etc. it is customary to group the purpos- es into broad headings. This basis of classification of ratios has been recommended by the British Institution of Management. Thus. There can be several pur- pose which can be listed. Working Capital turnover Profit Ratio Stock to Current Assets Operating Profit Ratio Fixed Assets to Total As- Return on Capital Fund set stock velocity etc. They are two types. ratios are used for the pur- pose of assessing the profitability and sound financial position.

 The higher ratio indicates that the firm ability to pay to current obli- gations in time. Networking Capital Ratio: 62 . Current assets Current Ratio = Current liabilities “ Internationally accepted current ratio is 2:1 current assets shall be two times to current liabilities ”.  If current assets have more of stock. debtors other than cash and bank. It is also known as working capital ratio. Its may be difficult to meet current obligations.  A ratio of less than to indicates inablequate current assets to meet current liabilities.  A very high current ratio also does not indicate efficiency since it means less efficient use of funds. Current Ratio The ratio reflects the relation between currents assets and current lia- bilities. The objective of calculat- ing of this ratio is to determine the ability of the concern to meet its short- term obligations.  But at the same time most of the current assets consist of bank and cash it is easier to meet the obligations.1. 2.

At the same time. This ratio establishes the relationship between quick assets and current liabili- ties. Networking capital Net working Capital Ratio = Net Assets 3. “ For this purpose stock and Prepaid expenses are not included in current assets”. Cash Position Ratio or Absolute Liquid Ratio: 63 . normally a year. But this is not necessarily so. it measures the firm’s potential reservoir of funds. Quick Ratio: Quick ratio is also known as liquid ratio or acid test ratio or near money ratio. Quick or Liquid Assets Quick Ratio = Liquid / Current liabilities Current assets – (Stock and Prepaid expenses) = Current liabilities – Bank over draft 4. This ratio regarded as a good indicates of liquidity quick. usually not exceeding one year. Networking capital is not a ratio. The difference between current as- sets and current liabilities is called net working capital. The term current assets refers to assets which in the normal course of business get converted into cash over a short period. Current lia- bilities are those liabilities which are required to be paid in short period. The objective is to measure the instant debt paying ability of the con- cern.

to calculate this ratio. It is calculated by dividing shareholders funds by the total assets. Shareholders’ Funds Proprietary Ratio = Total Assets or Total Resources Preference share capital and equity share capital plus all reserves and items are called shareholder’s fund. Total assets includes all assets includ- ing goodwill.75: 1 ratio is recommended to ensure liquidity. The invento- ry and the debtors are excluded from current assets. It is a variant of the debt equity ratio. When liquidity is highly restricted in terms of cash and cash equivalents. 5. This type of ratio is not widely used in practice. If the ratio is 1:1 then the firm has enough cash or hand to meet all current liabilities. and immediately maturing obligations on the other. 0. Capital Gearing Ratio: 64 . this ratio should be calculated. This ratio shows the long term or future solvency of the business. Proprietary Ratio: Proprietary Ratio relates the shareholders funds to total assets. The acceptable nor of the ratio is 1:3. Cash + Marketable Securities Cash Ratio = Current Liabilities Generally. This test is more rigorous measure of a firm’s liquidity position. Liquidi- ty ratio measures the relationship between each and near cash items on the one hand. It is a variation of quick ratio. 6.

including reserves and surplus. Capital Gearing Ratio is also known as Capitalisation Ratio or Lev- erage Ratio. Closely related to solvency ratios is the capital gearing ratio which is mainly used to analyse the capital structure of a company. The term Capital Gearing or Leverage normally refers to the proportion be- tween the fixed intrest or dividend bearing funds and non-fixed interest or dividend bearing funds. The former includes funds supplied by debenture holders and preference shareholders and the latter include equity sharehold- ers fund. If indicates the proportion between owner’s fund and non-owners funds (Preference shares plus long-term debt. Debt Equity Ratio: 65 .) 7. Fixed Interest Bearing Funds Capital Gearing = Equity Share Capital The capital gearing ratio show the mix of finance employed in the business.

The financing of total assets of a business concern is done by own-
er’s equity (also known as internal equity) as well as outside debts (known
external equity). How much fund has been provided by the owners and how
much by outsiders in the acquisition of total assets is a very significant fac-
tor affecting the long-term solvency position of a concern. In other words,
the relationship between borrowed funds and owner’s capital is a popular
measure of the long-term financial solvency of a firm. This ratio indicates
the relative proportions of debts and equity in financing the assets of a firm.
This ratio is calculated in various ways.

External Equities
Debt – Equity Ratio =
Internal Equities
Outsiders Funds
Debt – Equity Ratio =
Share holders Funds

As acceptable norm for this ratio considered 2:1. A higher debt-
equity ratio is allowed in the case of capital intency industries, a norm of
4:1 used for fertilizers and comment units and a norm of 6:1 is used for
shipping units.

8. Reserves to Equity Share Capital Ratio:


It reveals the policy pursued by the company with regard to growth
shares. A very high indicates a conservative dividend policy and increased
back of profit. Higher the ratio better will be the position.
Revenue Reserves
Reserve to Equity Capital Ratio=
Equity Capital

9. Solvency Ratio:
It is also known as debt ratio. It is a difference of 100 and proprietary
ratio. This ratio is found out between total assets and external liabilities of
the company. External liabilities means all long period and short period lia-
Total liabilities
Solvency Ratio =
Total Assets

Solvency generally refers to the capacity or ability of the business to
meet it short term and long term obligations it measure the proportion of
total assets provided by the forms. Creditors with total assets are far more
external liabilities, created as solvent.

10. Security Ratio:
Fixed liabilities usually make the form of debentures, preferably , se-
cured on fixed assets, of the company the market value or depreciated book
value fixed assets, should be taken into account at the date of calculation of
this ratio. A ratio of 1.5:1 is considered good.



1. Gross Profit Ratio:
The gross profit ratio is also known as Gross Margin Ratio, Trading
Margin ration etc., is expressly as a “Per Cent Ratio” The difference be-
tween Net Sales and Cost of goods Sold is known as Gross Profit. Gross
profit is highly significant. The earning capacity of the business can be as-
certained by taking the margin cost of goods sold and sales. It is very useful
has a test of proprietary and management efficiency. It is generally content-
ed that the margin of gross profit should be sufficient enough to recover all
operation expenses and other expenses and also leave adequate amount as
Net Profit in relation to sales and owner’s equity. Thus, in a trading busi-
ness, gross profit is net sales minus trading cost of sales.
Gross Profit
Gross profit ratio = x 100
Net sales
Sales – cost of goods sold x100
or =
Net Sales

2. Operating Ratio:


Cost of goods sold + Operating Expenses Operating ratio = Net Sales Cost of goods sold = Opening Stock + Purchases – Closing Stock Operating expenses= Administrative expenses + Financial Expenses + SellingExpens- es 3. Operating ratios are generally expressed in percentages. Net Profit Ratio: 69 . There are many expenses ratio. adminis- trative expenses. Administrative Expenses = x 100 Net Sales 4. Cost of goods sold are also known are also known as di- rect operating expenses and the rest are known as other operating expenses. Total operating expenses include cost of goods. This ratio establishes the relationship between total operating ex- penses and sales. Expenses Ratio: The expenses is also known as supporting ratios to operating ratio it becomes imperative that each aspect of cost of sales and or operating ex- penses should be analyzed in detailed just findout as how for the concern is able to say or is making over expenditure in respect of different type of ex- penses. The following are a few: Factory Expenses a. Factory expenses ratio = x 100 Net Sales Administrative expense b.

the expenses of operating the business and the cost of borrowed funds. It is also called Net profit to Sales Ratio = (Profit margin). 70 . It is an index of efficiency and profitability when used with gross profit ratio and operating ratio. the cost of merchandise or services. Higher the ratio of net operating profit to sales. Net Profit Net Profit Ratio = x 100 Net Sales This ratio is used to measure the overall profitability and hence it is very useful to proprietors. better is the operational efficiency of the concern. The profit margin indicative of management’s ability to operate the business with sufficient success not only to recover from revenues of the period. but also to leave a margin of reasonable compensa- tion to the owners for providing their capital at risk.

This is also known as Return on Investment or Rate of Return. It measures the profitability of investments. This ratio is also known as profit – to – assets ratio. 2. The prime objective of making investments in any business is to obtain statisfactory return on capi- tal invested. Return on Shareholders Equity: 71 . It indicates the percentage of return on the capital employed in the business and it can be used to show efficiency of the business as a whole. Operating Profit Return on Capital Employed = x 100 Capital Employed 3.PROFITABILITY RATIOS RELATED TO INVESTMENTS 1) Return on Assets: Profitability can be measured in terms of relationship between net profit and assets. Thus overall profitability can be known. according to the purpose and intent of the calculation of the ratios. Return on Capital Employed: This is the second type ROI (Return on Investment). Net Profit Return on Assets = x 100 Total Assets There are various approaches possible to define net profits and as- sets.

e. Cost of Goods Sold Stock Turnover Ratio = Average inventory at cost 72 . A firm must have reasonable stock in comparison to sales. This ratio helps the fi- nancial manager to evaluate inventory policy. It is the ratio of the cost of sales and average inventory. The ratio establishes the profitability from the shareholders point of view. Net Profit Return on share holder’s equity = x 100 Shareholders Fund The term net profit as used here. means net income after payment of interest and tax including net non-operating income (i. This ratio is calculated consider the adequacy of the quantum of capital and its justification for investing in inventory. Non-operating in- come minus non-operating expenses.) ACTIVITY RATIOS OR TURNOVER RATIOS Inventory Turnover Ratio: This is also known as stock velocity.

The amount of total payables of a business concern depends upon the purchases policy of the concern. This ratio indicates the efficiency of the management in utilizing the working capital of the business concern “Net working Capital means the sum of total current assets minus current liabilities. A business usually purchase on credit goods.. change with the in- crease or decrease in sales. But when the form does not pay off its creditors within time it may have adverse effect on the business. Longer the period of outstanding payable is lessor is problem of working capital of the firm. Net Credit Purchases Creditors Turnover Ratio = Average account payable Working Capital Turnover Ratio: Working capital of a company is directly related to sales. Net Sales Working Capital Turnover Ratio = Net working Capital 73 . CREDITORS TURNOVER RATIO This is also known as Accounts Payable or Creditors Velocity. The current assets like debtors bills receivables cash and stock etc. raw materials and services from other firms. the quantity of the purchases and suppliers credit policy.

Net Credit Sales Debtors Turnover Ratio = Average Debtors + Bills Receivables Net Credit sales means that the sales return are deducted from total credit sales. it has been adopted by many firm in some form or the other. The objective of this ratio is to measure the liquidity of receiv- ables or ascertaining the average period over which receivables are uncol- lected. 74 . A change in any of these ratios will change in these factors will bring a change in these two ratios. 45 to 60 days may be considered as normal ratio. The earning power. Credit Sales as a result of credit sales debtors bills receivables are created. represented by return on capital employed. shows the combined effect of the net profit margin and the capital turnover. In order to increase their sales the business concern start making. As a useful tool for finan- cial analysis.The higher ratio is considered congenial for the business implies better cash flow. DU PONT CHART The Du pont Company of US pioneered a system of financial analy- sis which has received widespread recognition. Generally the shorter the average collection period the better is the qualities of debtors. This ratio also called receivables turnover ratio or Debtors velocity ratio.Debtors Turnover Ratio: This ratio express the relationship between sales and average debtors.

The most important financial ratios may be divided into four types. Costs A financial ratio is the principal tool for analysis of financial state- ments. particularly in signaling business strengths and weakness of a firm. The two components of this ratio. Return on Capital Employed Turnover x Profit Margin Capital Em-       Sales Sales Net Profit ployed Working Cap. the profit margin and the in- vestment turnover ratio individually do not give an over-all view as the former ignores the profitability of investments while the later fails to con- sider the profitability on sales. Costs Fixed ital Assets + Selling Costs Stock + B/R + + Debtors + Cash Adm. Financial ratios seem to have predictive ability. 75 . namely. It helps to ascertain the financial condition of a firm.The usefulness of the Du Pont type of analysis lies in the fact that it pre- sents the over all picture of the performance of a firm as also enables the management to identity the factors which have a bearing on profitability. + Sales Mfg.

These ratio indicate the funds provided by owners and credi- tors. Rate of Return Ratios reflect the relationship be- tween profit and Investment for examples. Capital- Equity Ratios. Net Profit Margin etc. Fund Flow Ratios etc. C) TURNOVER RATIOS. Fixed Asset Turnover etc. B) FINANCIAL LEVERAGE refers to the use of debt finance. Return on Investment. For examples. That is these ratios measure the proportion of outsiders capital in fi- nancing the firm’s assets and establishing the relationship between bor- rowed capital and equity capital. Liquid Ratios. PROFITABILITY RATIO measure the overall performance of Business – profit margin ratios and rate of return ratios. for examples. 76 . Current Ratios. Debtors Turnover. Return on Equity etc. leverage or capital structure ratios are calculated. Stock Turnovers. These ratios are calculated by establishing relationship between sales and assets. For example. For examples. Debt-Equity Ratios. To judge the long term financial position a firm. Gross Profit Mar- gin. Profit margin ratios show the relationship between profit and sales. Interest Coverage Ratios etc.A) LIQUIDITY refers to the ability of a firm to meet its obligations in the short run usually one year. Liquidity ratios are calculated by establishing relationships between current assets and current liabilities. also referred to as activity ratios or asset man- agement ratios measure how efficiently the assets are employed by the firm.
