Problem 17-4A

1.Current ratio

= 3.9 to 1

2.Acid-test ratio

= 2.3 to 1

3.Days' sales uncollected

x 365 = 33.2 days

4.Inventory turnover

= 7.2 times

5.Days’ sales in inventory

x 365 = 49.6 days

6.Debt-to-equity ratio

(\$16,500 + \$2,200 + \$2,300 + \$62,400) / (\$90,000 + \$59,800) = 0.56 to 1

7.Times interest earned

\$66,950 / \$3,100 = 21.6 times

8.Profit margin ratio

= 13.8%

Problem 17-4A (Concluded)

9.Total asset turnover

= 1.7 times

10.Return on total assets

= 23.1%

11.Return on common stockholders' equity

= 35.4%

a. Current ratio

= 2.5 to 1= 2.5 to 1

b. Acid-test ratio

= 1.0 to 1= 1.0 to 1

c. Accounts receivable turnover

= 18.0 times = 13.5 times

d. Inventory turnover

= 7.0 times = 4.5 times

e. Days’ sales in inventory

x 365 = 62.8 days x 365 = 90.1 days

f. Days' sales uncollected

x 365 = 24.6 days x 365 = 29.3 days

Short-term credit risk analysis: Ryan and Priest have essentially equal current ratios and equal acid-test ratios. However, Ryan both turns its merchandise and collects its accounts receivable more rapidly than does Priest. On this basis, Ryan probably is the better short-term credit risk.
