Interpretation: - As we know that ideal current ratio for any firm is 2:1.The current ratio of company is less than the ideal ratio. This depicts that companys liquidity position is not sound. Its current assets are less than its current liabilities. Generally a QR of 1:1 is considered to represent satisfactory current financial position. The trend of quick ratio is uneven & the ratio is around 0.5:1 over a period of time. A quick ratio is an indication that the firm is liquid and has the less confidence to meet its current liabilities in time. This shows company has liquidity problem.

INTERPRETATION: 1.It shows increasing trend which is favorable for the company. As it indicates how rapidly the inventory is turning into receivable through sales. A high ratio is good from the view point of liquidity. A low ratio would signify that inventory does not sell fast. 2. A high ratio is indicative of shorter time lag between credit sales and cash collection. The higher the value of debtors turnover the more efficient is the management of debtors or more liquid the debtors are. A low ratio shows that debts are not being collected rapidly. As the graph reveals that the debts are collected in time & the process is improving consistently. This shows that company is utilizing its debtors efficiently as compare to previous year. 3. This ratio indicates high net working capital requires for sales. This company having negative working capital because, they have more current liabilities over current assets. It shows that the short term loans are not sufficient and more money are invested in the purchase of fixed assets. Thus this ratio is helpful to forecast the working capital requirement on the basis of sale.

Profitability & Investment turnover Ratio:Profitability Dec,06 Dec07 Dec08 Dec09 Dec10 Ratio Gross Profit 17.32 28.97 23.72 20.59 27.68 Ratio Net Profit 16.85 21.16 20.44 16.29 19.69 Ratio Investment Valuation Ratio Face value 10.00 10.00 10.00 10.00 10.00 Dividend per 8.00 15.00 20.00 20.00 23.00 Share G/P margin ratio shows the profit relative to sales. A high ratio of gross profits to sales is a sign of good management as it implies that the cost of production of the firm is relatively low. For ACC it is uneven but it was good in FY07 & FY10. The net profit margin is indicative of management ability to operate the business with sufficient success not only to recover from revenues, but also to leave a reasonable margin to the owners. A high net profit margin would ensure adequate return to the owners as well as enable a firm to face adverse economic conditions. It is significant & satisfactory for the company. As it shows the dividend per share ratio is increasing over years. It means that the investors have faith in the company.


It is suggested that the company has to increase its current assets to meet its shortterm obligations. Company has to improve debtors collection period continuously so that effective receivable management will possible. Reserves should be utilized for the growth of the company. While forecasting cash flow, the management should take into account the impact of unforeseen events, market cycles and actions by competitors. The effect of unforeseen demands of working capital should be factored in. Collaborating with the customers & suppliers instead of being focused only on own operations will also yield good results. If feasible, helping them to plan their inventory requirements efficiently to match their production with their consumption will help reduce inventory levels.
