The industry leader by turnover OOO A G C Flat Glass Klin is placed on the seventh spot of the ranking with the current assets to equity ratio value that equals to -0,89 and satisfactory solvency index Globas-i®.

None of the represented companies in the Top-10 fit in the ratio statutory value. The closest to the statutory values are the indicators 0,66 and 0,08 belonging to PAO A G C BSZ and NAO AO Salavatsteklo respectively, having the prime and high solvency index Globas-i®.

Following the results of 2014 the industry-average indicator of current assets to equity ratio amounted to -1,8, which in the whole speaks for irrational use of the working capital. The indicators of ZAO RSK and OOO Gardian Steklo Rostov are lower that the industry-average ones. It means that the companies have the low mobility rate of own assets due to the fact that the major part of them is invested in the slowly realizable assets instead of the currents assets.
