Current liquidity ratio of the largest Russian manufacturers of medical appliances and equipment
Information agency Credinform presents a ranking of the largest Russian manufacturers of medical appliances and equipment. Companies with the highest volume of revenue (TOP-10) were selected for this ranking according to the data from the Statistical Register for the latest available periods (2016 and 2015). The enterprises were ranked by current liquidity ratio in 2015 (Table 1). The analysis was based on data from the Information and Analytical system Globas.
Current liquidity ratio (х) is calculated as current assets to short-term liabilities of the company. The recommended value is from 1.0 to 2.0. The value of the indicator less than 1.0 indicates the excess of current liabilities over current working capital. Thus, the lower interval limit is determined by the need to ensure the adequacy of working capital for the full repayment of short-term liabilities. Otherwise, the enterprise faces bankruptcy. However, a significant excess of short-term funds over liabilities may indicate a violation of the capital structure and non-rational or inefficient investment of funds.
Taking into account the actual situation both in economy in general and in sectors, the experts of the Information Agency Credinform have developed and implemented in the Information and Analytical System Globas the calculation of practical values of financial ratios that can be recognized as normal for a particular industry. The practical value of current liquidity ratio for manufacturers of medical appliances and equipment in 2016 was from 1,03 to 8,91.
For the most complete and objective view of the financial condition of the enterprise it is necessary to pay attention to the complex of ratios and financial indicators of the company.
