Liabilities to assets ratio of the largest Russian perfume and cosmetics manufacturers

ranking 31.10.2016

Information Agency Credinform has prepared the ranking of the largest Russian perfume and cosmetics manufacturers by liabilities to assets ratio.

Previously, we have already referred to this category of producers in the ranking «Accounts payable turnover of manufacturers of perfumery products».

The largest enterprises (TOP-10) in terms of revenue were selected according to the data from the Statistical Register for the latest available period (for the year 2015). Then, the companies were ranged by liabilities to assets ratio (Table 1).

Liabilities to assets ratio (х) is calculated as a ratio of long-term and short-term borrowed funds to total assets and specifies the share of company’s assets, which is funded with borrowings.

The recommended value is from 0,2 to 0,5. The ratio higher than normative value testifies the excessive debt load, which may stimulate development as well as negatively influence on the sustainability of corporate finance. The ratio value lower than normative may indicate about conservative strategy of financial management and excessive caution in attracting new borrowed funds.

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