Financial ratio analysis is the calculation and comparison of ratios, which

are derived from the information in a company’s financial statements. The level and
historical trends of these ratios can be used to make inferences about a company’s
financial condition, its operations and attractiveness as an investment. The information in
the statements is used by

its financial structure.

data and calculate only a few appropriate ratios. The following are the four steps involved
in the ratio analysis.

• Selection of relevant data from the financial statements depending upon the
objective of the analysis.

2009-10 8803.63 5421.75 1.62


From the above chart, it shows the decline trend during F.Y. 2007 to F.Y.2009.

It was high in F.Y.2007 at 4.14 times which further reduced to 1.62 times in F.Y. 2009
which is lower than standard i.e. 2:1.

In F.Y. 2007 the ratio was high due to the high Cash & Bank balance which
further reduced to 2.67 times in F.Y. 2008. In F.Y.2009 the ratio was very low because of
increase in Current Liability.

The continuous decrease in Current Ratio is not good for company’s financial
health. So company has to take necessary action to improve current ratio.

the ability of a firm to pay its short-term obligations as & when they become due.

The chart shows continuous decline trend from F.Y.2007 to F.Y. 2008. The ratio
is above the standard i.e. 1:1. In F.Y. 2007 the ratio was high at 4.5 times due to
tremendous increase in Cash & Bank Balance which was25 times greater than F.Y.2008,
also in F.Y. 2007. Further it reduced to 1.54 times but we cannot say that the liquid
position of the company is good because in F.Y. 2009 company’s Cash & bank balance
and Debtors has increased.
Thus, the company can suffer the shortage of fund due to slow paying, doubtful &
long duration outstanding debtors.

At early stage i.e. in F.Y. 2007 it was low at 1.59 times which further
increased to 2.34 times in F.Y. 2008 and later on it further decreased to 1.62 times.

Rs. 50.37 per share (EPS). The difference per share is retained in the business.


1) There is continuous decrease in Current Ratio. Thus, it is necessary to take

corrective actions.

2) The company can suffer the shortage of fund due to slow paying, doubtful & long

duration outstanding debtors.

3) The lenders contribution is higher than owner’s contribution which indicates that

Creditors are less secured than shareholders of the company.

4) The operating expenses relative to sales have been increasing.

5) Proprietary ratio of the company fluctuates during the period of study. It shows

the change in the value of reserves and surplus in the form of shareholders’ fund.

7) The overall financial condition of R-INFRA is good.


The R-INFRA’s overall position is at a good position. Particularly the

current year’s position is well due to raise in the profit level from the last year position. It

is better for the organization to diversify the funds to different sectors in the present

market scenario.
