Information agency Credinform has prepared a ranking of the largest Russian footwear manufacturers. Companies with the largest annual revenue (Top-10) were selected for the ranking, according to the data from the Statistical Register for the latest available accounting periods (2015 - 2017). Then they were ranked by quick ratio (Table 1). The analysis was based on the data from the Information and Analytical system Globas.
Too high ratio value may indicate irrational capital structure. It may be connected with a slow turnover of funds invested in stocks and an increase in accounts receivable. A low level of the indicator means that the funds and the upcoming income from current operations do not cover company’s current liabilities.
For getting of the most comprehensive and fair picture of the financial standing of an enterprise it is necessary to pay attention to all indicators and financial ratios.
|Name, INN, region||Sales revenue, million RUB||Net profit (loss), million RUB||Quick ratio (x), from 0,5 to 0,8||Solvency index Globas|

Bankruptcy claim was filed against the company
|Total for Top-10 companies||21688,3||23606,9||1498,0||989,0|
|Average for Top-10 companies||2168,8||2360,7||149,8||98,9||0,39||0,50|
|Average industry value||59,8||70,9||4,2||3,4||0,17||0,16|
— improvement compared to prior period, — decline compared to prior period.
Average value of quick ratio of Top-10 companies is much higher than the average industry one. In 2017 no company had this ratio within the recommended values.
During the decade average industry quick ratio tended to decrease (Picture 2).
An universal indicator, by which one can judge the scale of a business, is the volume of revenue. How efficiently the company operates in the market is indicated by the derived index from revenue - profit or loss. Revenue is demonstrated by any operating firm, but not all of them are profitable. The number of profitable companies, as well as their total profit can show the concentration ratio of Russian business in a regional level, the attractiveness of one or another territory for the development of entrepreneurship.
Moscow is the center of country's economic life, the city where the largest, most competitive and successful enterprises are located, which sometimes not conduct production activities directly in the capital. It’s hard to argue against this thesis, namely in Moscow, according to the results of 2018, 29,9% of the total profit of Russian companies were formed. St. Petersburg is in the second place with a noticeable lag: only 5,6% of total corporate profit were earned in the city on the Neva. The third place is occupied by Khanty-Mansijsk Autonomous District - Yugra – 5,3%.
In total, almost 62% of profit are accounted for by TOP-10 regions, the remaining 75 regions - a little over a third - 38%. This indicates the maintaining of a high degree of concentration of entrepreneurial activity in a small group of economically significant subjects to the detriment of the rest.
However, if we consider the dynamics of the distribution of companies’ profit by regions over the past 10 years, we can make an interesting conclusion: the total share of profitable organizations of Moscow in the total profit of Russian companies decreased by a substantial 8,1% (s. Picture 2). This was the maximum decrease among all the subjects of the RF.
On the other hand, the share in the total profit of companies of the Sakhalin region increased by 2%, of the organizations of the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous District - by 1,3%, of the enterprises of Leningrad region - by 1%.
In other words, there is a slow, gradual flow of business from the capital to regions. This process can be considered exclusively as a boon for the country as a whole.
