Chapter 13 Analyzing Financial Statements EXERCISES E13–4 1. If the average sales volume remains the same, then the cost of goods sold will also remain the same. If the inventory decreases by 25%, the inventory turnover ratio will increase. 2. In a period of increasing prices, a change from FIFO to weighted average will cause inventory to decrease and cost of good sold to increase. Ratio Impact of change Profit margin = Net income / Net sales Decrease Fixed asset turnover = Net Sales / Average net fixed assets No effect Current ratio = Current assets /Current liabilities Decrease Quick ratio = (Cash + ST investments + A/R) / CL No effect E13–10 Current assets = $38,914 + $202,539 + $389,905 + $198,000 + $11,163 = $840,521 Current liabilities = $71,635 + $51,615 + $43,694 + $4,288 = $171,232 Current ratio = Current assets / Current liabilities = $840,521 /$171,232 = 4.91 Quick ratio = Quick assets / Current liabilities = $631,358 / $171,232 = 3.69 Inventory turnover = Cost of goods sold / Average inventory = $1,406,829 / [($216,412 + $198,000) / 2] = 6.79 Receivables turnover = Net credit sales / Average net accounts receivable = $2,568,776 x 60% / [($326,896 + $389,905) / 2] = 4.30 The current ratio and the quick ratio indicate clearly that the company has sufficient current assets to pay its current liabilities.
