Company Evaluation Paper – PepsiCo.
This paper provides calculated ratios of liquidity, activity, debt and profitability of Pepsi Co for the fiscal years 2007-2008. This information was obtained from the financial statements.
The current ratio is considered to be the most simplified liquidity test. It essentially signifies a company's capacity to satisfy its short-term liabilities utilizing its short-term assets. A current ratio which is larger than or equal to one shows that current assets should have the ability to satisfy its short-term obligations. A current ratio that is less than one may entail that the company has issues with its liquidity. Pepsico’s current ratio in 2007 was 1.3. In 2008 the current ratio was 1.2.
