ТОP-10 private security companies by return on assets ratio

ranking 03/07/2020

Information agency Credinform has prepared a ranking of the largest Russian security companies. The largest enterprises (TOP-10) in terms of annual revenue were selected according to the data from the Statistical Register for the available periods (2016-2018). Then the companies were ranged by return on assets ratio (Table 1). The analysis was based on the data from the Information and Analytical system Globas.

Return on assets (%) is calculated as the relation of the sum of net profit and interest payable to the total assets value of a company and shows how many monetary units of net profit are earned by every unit of total assets.

The ratio characterizes the effectiveness of using by the company of its resources. The higher is the ratio value, the more effective is business, that is the higher the return per every monetary unit invested in assets.

However, it is necessary to take into account that the book value of assets may not correspond to their current market value. For example, under the influence of inflation, the book value of fixed assets will increasingly be underestimated in time, that will lead to an overestimation of the return on assets. Thus, it is necessary to take into account not only the structure, but also the age of the assets.

It should be also taken into account the dynamics of this indicator. Its consistent decline indicates a drop in asset utilization.

For the most full and fair opinion about the company’s financial position the whole set of financial indicators and ratios should be taken into account.
