Introduction of the topic - Liquidity and Profitability :

The capacity to be converted easily and with minimum loss into cash. Ultra-short-dated treasury notes are an example of a liquid investment. A liquid market is one in which there is enough activity to satisfy both buyers and sellers.

High liquidity produces flexibility for a firm or an investor in a low-risk position, but it also tends to decrease profitability.

Liquidity: we can calculate by this method

  • Current ratio
  • Quick ratio
  • Operating cash flow ratio


Liquidity Ratio :

Current ratio = current assets/current liability

Acid-test ratio (Quick ratio) = current asset-(inventories + prepayment) / Current liability

Operation cash flow ratio = Operation cash flow/current liability


Profitability :

The ability of a company to earn a profit. It is a relative measure of success for a business profit, in economics, return on capital, also called earnings, minus the costs of maintaining land, labor, and capital. It is also known as net income.

The main objective of every business concern is to earn profits. A business must be able to earn adequate profit in relation to the risk and capital invested in it.


Profitability Ratios or Income Ratios :

Gross profit ratio:- Gross profit / Net Sales * 100

(Net sales= Sales - Sales return)

Net profit Ratio: - Net profit / Net sales * 100

(Operating Net Profit= operating net profit/ Net Sales *100 or operating Net profit= gross profit – operating expenses)

Operating Ratio :- Cost of goods sold + Operating expenses / Net Sales * 100

(Cost of goods sold = Net Sales – Gross profit, Operating expenses = office & administration expenses + Selling & distribution expenses + discount + bad debts + interest on short loans)

Earning per share (E.P.S.) :- Net Profit – dividend on preference share / No. of equity shares

Dividend per share (D.P.S.) :- Dividend paid to equity share Holders / No. Of equity shares *100

Dividend Payout ratio(D.P.) :- D.P.S. / E.P.S. *100


Focus of the Problem

  • To understand the Profitability trend in different companies
  • To understand the availability of cash to pay debts.
  • To know the creditability of the companies.


Objectives of the Project Report :

  • To study the profitability and liquidity of the company.
  • To study the Profit trend of oil company.
  • To study the efficiency of company regarding utilization of resources.
  • To study the credibility of the companies.


Suggestions :

  • No window dressing should be included in the liquidity and profitability analysis.
  • It should be more structured and comprehensive.
  • This should provide opportunity to improve financial position and creditability.
  • There should be different time period for the measurement of the performance
  • Liquidity and profitability should be based on accurate data.
  • The companies should adopt optimum capital decision to get good return on long term investment to increase their profits.
