The largest Russian manufacturers of metal pipes on the asset/liability ratio

ranking 02/02/2017

Information agency Credinform prepared the ranking of Russian manufacturers of metal pipes. The companies with the highest volume of annual revenue involved in this industry (TOP-10) were selected for the ranking, according to the data from the Statistical Register for the latest available accounting periods (for 2015 and 2014). Then the enterprises were ranked by the asset/liability ratio (Table 1).

Asset/liability ratio (х) is calculated as the relation of long-term and short-term debts to the sum of the balance and points at the share of company's assets funded with loans.

The common recommended value of the index varies from 0,2 to 0,5, and the practical values calculated by the Information agency Credinform using an individual method, which takes into account the actual position of companies in a particular industry, varies from 0,4 to 1,0.

Exceedance of the upper standard value points to an excessive debt overburden, which can stimulate development, but have a negative impact on the stability of corporate finances. The index value, being lower than the standard value, can be indicative of a conservative strategy of financial management and an excess of caution in the attraction of new borrowings.

For getting of the most comprehensive and fair picture of the financial standing of an enterprise it is necessary to pay attention not only to compliance with standard values, but also to all combination of financial indicators and company’s ratios.

The volume of revenue of 10 the largest companies is 96% of the total revenue of 100 the largest enterprises. It points to a very high level of monopolization in this industry. In particular, the share of industry leaders - VYKSA STEEL WORKS JSC VSW and CHELYABINSKII TRUBOPROKATNYI ZAVOD PAO - in the total revenue of the group of TOP-100 companies for 2015 made about 67% cumulatively (Picture 2).

Eight of TOP-10 enterprises got the highest or high solvency index GLOBAS-i®, that points to their ability to repay their long-term debts timely and fully.

SEVERNAYA TRUBNAYA KOMPANIYA LLC got satisfactory solvency index GLOBAS-i®, due to the information on its participation as a defendant in arbitration court proceedings in terms of debt collection and to the loss in the structure of the balance sheet ratios. The forecast of ratio development remains stable, and credits require guarantees.

VOLZHSKIE AVTOMOBILNYE ZAPCHASTI K LEGKOVYM MASHINAM LLC got unsatisfactory solvency index GLOBAS-i®, due to the application for recognition of the company bankrupt. The probability of financial insolvency in the next 12 months is very high. The forecast of ratio development is negative, and credits are declined.

Three from TOP-10 companies (shown in red in Table 1) made a loss or reduction in the net profit in 2015 compared with the previous period. At the same time, all the enterprises, as well in the group of TOP-10, as in the group of TOP-100, created steadily the volumes of revenue in 2015.

Industry production indicators in physical terms in the period from 2011 to 2016 are not stable, as evidenced by the data calculated on the basis of the information of the Federal State Statistics Service (Picture 3). At the end of 11 months of 2016 there is a decline in production.

Companies, producing metal pipes, are spread relatively equally within the country’s territory and tend to industrial regions with well-developed infrastructure required for such energy-intensive and high-tech industry. This information is confirmed by the Information and analytical system Globas-i, according to which 100 the largest companies of the industry in terms of revenue for 2015 are registered in 30 regions of Russia (Picture 4).
