Financial Ratio Analysis and Comparison

1. Note from Income Statement and Balance Sheet.
* Total Net Income of Coca-cola.Co was suddenly high in 2010. This was caused by Income Before Income Taxes. As in Coca-cola annual report, it was illustrated by: “The increase in 2010 was primarily attributable to a $4,978 million gain due to the re-measurement of our equity investment in CCE to fair value upon our acquisition of CCE's North American business.” * Pepsi.Co’s Current Assets in 2010 was transferred to non-current assets mostly in 2011. So total assets of this company increase except Current Assets.| | 2. Total Asset Turnover

| 2011| 2010|
PepSi. Co| 0.943085| 1.071064|
Cocacola. Co| 0.61| 0.58|
From these factors, it shows that the total assets in 2011 of Pepsi.Co declined markedly. In 2010 their total assets was 1.07, but by 2011 only 0.9. Compared with competitors Cocacola.Co grew slightly and tended to increase in the coming years. However, these both companies in two years are still below the value of 1.8.

Co decreased from 2010 to 2011. It means in 2011 2 companies invested more money but they earned less than what they had earned in 2010. As the ratio of return on asset, we can see that Coca-cola. Co has a more effective strategy in investment that Pepsi.Co. Because the ratio of Coca is higher than Pepsi’s. 4. Profit Margin ( ROS )

| 2011| 2010|
Pepsi.Co| 9.60| 10.93|
Coca-cola.Co| 18.42| 33.63|
