Interpretation of Financial ratios for TWo old ages
Based on our ratios analysis of fiscal old ages 2008 and 2009. The undermentioned reading of the fiscal ratios for the two old ages:
Debt Management Ratio
In debt to equity ratio every bit good as the debt ratio of the company in continuosly diminishing for the last three old ages. This means that the company is under lesser sum of debt and lesser adoption is made by the company in the last three old ages. This besides suggests that company is holding higher sum of assets which means that value of the company is increasing:
We can see from the last three old ages that return on equity ratio every bit good as return of assets ratio is invariably increasing which means that there is an addition in the sum of net income for the stockholders for the past three old ages. This means that stockholders are acquiring more dividends.
Net income Margin Ratio: Net income Margin Ratio has been increased in instance of 2008 as compared t0 2007. This shows that the per centum of the net income which the company is gaining is traveling high which is evidently a good mark for the company
We can see from the above tabular array that return to equity every bit good as return to the assets has been decreased in the span of one twelvemonth
Market & A ; Book
Monetary value to net incomes ratio is diminishing with the addition in the assets of the company. This means that company ‘s net incomes are traveling higher.
Along with that market to book value of the company is increasing this means that market value of the company is increasing twelvemonth by twelvemonth
We can urge in this undertaking that a stockholder should put in the company because of the ground that the company ‘s stockholder ‘s equity has increased marginally in the twelvemonth 2009 with a really less addition in the liabilities. This means that company ‘s debt is really less as comparison to the assets of the company. We know that company had a really bad clip in the twelvemonth 2008 when debt increased at a really fast gait in the company but still after that daze company has covered a batch and that we can see from the company ‘s tendency from the last two old ages that there is considerable addition in the assets and really less addition in the debt. This means that company ‘s debt to equity ratio every bit good as debt ratio is diminishing which means that there is really less sum of fiscal hazard associated with puting in the company. Hence we can urge to the general stakeholders that they can easy put in the company in order to gain more dividends. There is another ground for which stockholders can put in the company because we have described that the company is a manufacturer of natural gas and natural gas is considered to be the future fuel of the state. Hence this suggests that company is traveling to boom in the close hereafter.
In short we can give some short description for puting in the company:
Market value of the company is increasing
Company is holding higher net incomes
Higher assets and lower debt
Investors are acquiring more dividends
We can urge from our analysis that harmonizing to the fiscal informations given to us and our analysis to the fiscal information, earlier informations were the best as per the investing by the stockholders are concerned. The chief ground behind this is that there is an addition the liability of the company during this period of clip for the company was really less. Hence from our survey during the period of our survey we can state that the best periods in which stockholders could hold invested in the company were earlier periods. But as the clip passed, there was a great addition in the liabilities of the company. This addition in debt of the company shocked the people and made the people or the portion holders to alter their determination as all the stockholders thought that with this immense addition in the liabilities of the company, company would ne’er be able to last in the industry. Harmonizing to our analysis of two twelvemonth period, 2008 was the worst as per the point of position of the investors to put in the company because there was a immense addition in the liabilities of the company.
With this lessening in the trust of stockholders on the company, there a small better scenario in the twelvemonth 2008 and a little more better in the twelvemonth 2009. And in the last two old ages company has done a batch to better its status in the industry. In the twelvemonth 2009, addition in the liabilities is so less as compared to the assets of the company.
