3.1.1 Balance Sheet Comparison:


From the balance sheet of the both companies we can identify that Ashraf textile had 504,741,251 tk total assets in 2005 but on the other hand Saiham textile had only 425,320,371 tk total asset in 2003-2004. Next year Ashraf textile companies total asset was decreased and Saiham textile company’s total assets increase and in 2007 Ashraf textile reached in 167,726,578 tk whereas in 2005-2006 Saiham textile’s total asset 436,650,516 tk.

The total liability we saw that Ashraf textile had 623,823,012 tk liabilities in 2005 & Saiham textile had 152,581,718 tk only in 2003-2004.Both companies’ liabilities were also increased in next year. But clearly we can comments that Ashraf textile had least liability than the Saiham textile. How ever Saiham textile had the more Net asset than the Ashraf textile.

share holder’s equity

we can easily understand that Saiham textile had the more equity and it was 818,663,635 tk for 2004-06 & Ashraf textile had -1,123,244,182. So we can say that Saiham textile had the more investment in the market.

From our income statement we can identify that Saiham textile has a profit 74,932,529 tk in 2004 & 52,001,246 tk in 2005 & 57,295,427 tk in 2006. From this we can say that the profit is decreasing by next two years. And this shows that sale for Saiham textile decreasing during the next two year. On the other hand Ashraf textile is in a loss of -62,609,854 tk in 2005 & -122,738,787 tk in 2006 & -14,064,257 tk in 2007. They continue their business in loss where Saiham textile doing their business with profitability.

3.1.3 Analyzing Common Sizing & Indexing:

In common size analysis we express the various components of a balance sheet as percentage of the total assets of the company.In addition this can be done for the income statement,but here items are releted to net sales.In Ashraf textile balance sheets over the three year span the percentage of current assets increased.On the other hand Saiham textile current assets fluctuated.

The common size income statement show the gross profit/loss margin from year to year. We see that Ashraf textile operating expenses increase year to year & in 2007 increases sharply.whereas Saiham textile operating expenses diccreased in 2004-2005 & increase again in 2005-2006.In 2005-2007 Ashraf textile’s net profit had negetive percentage, whereas Saiham textile’s net profit increased.

4.0 Financial Statement Analysis by ratio:

For the performance measurement of Ashraf textile & Saiham textile mills Ltd. In below we are going to analysis about the two companies financial statement using ratio analysis. We used 11 methods to analyze the ratio. Here are belongs:

4.1 Liquidity Ratio:

i) Current Ratio: Current assets divided by current liabilities. It shows a firm’s ability to cover its current liabilities with its current assets. In below there is the graph of the two textile company’s current ratio:

From the graph we can see that Ashraf textile current ratio is 0.32 times in 2005 and 0.167 times in 2007. Here we see that current ratio has been decreased and go down in less than 1. On the other hand Saiham textile current ratio is 1.044 in 2003-04 & next two year stay remain but it also be below the 1 and from the Ashraf textile. In the last year for both company we suggested that the current liabilities cannot be covered if existing current asset are liquated at their book values.

ii)Quick Ratio: Current assets less inventories divided by current liabilities. It shows a firms ability to meet current liabilities with its most liquid assets.

From the graph we can easily identify that in 2006 Ashraf textile & Saiham textile quick ratio is decreased dramatically. We say that in the last year of the both company’s quick ratio increased. But Saiham textile has good position than the Ashraf textile.

4.2 Financial Leverage debt ratio:

i)Debt-To-Equity: Ratios that show the extent to which the firm is financed by debt.

If we consider the year 2007 of Ashraf textile, the ratio is -1.253 that creditors are providing for each tk 1. In the case of Saiham textile in 2005-2006 the ratio is 0.599 that creditors are providing. So we can say that Ashraf textile is in a better position than the Saiham textile.

ii) Debt-To-Total Asset Ratio: The debt to total asset ratio is derived by dividing a firm’s total debt by its total assets.

From the graph we can realize that Ashraf textile ratio is more than Saiham textile in their last three year. We know that the higher the debt to assets ratio, the greater the financial risk; the lower the ratio, the lower the risk. So Ashraf textile has more risk than the Saiham textile.

4.3 Coverage Ratio:

i) Interest Coverage Ratio: Ratio earning before interest and taxes divided by interest charges. It indicates a firm’s ability to cover interest charges. It is also called times interest earned.

This ratio serves as one measure of the firm’s ability to meet its interest payments and thus avoid bankruptcy. The higher the ratio the greater company could cover its interest payment without difficulty. So analyze after the two graphs we can said that Saiham textile has more interest coverage than the Ashraf textile Cement. Ashraf textile ratio is fluctuated highly in 2007.

4.4 Activity Ratio:

i) Receivable Turnover: the receivable turnover ratio provides insight into the equality of the firm’s receivables and how to successful the firm is in is collections. This ratio is calculated by dividing receivables into annual net credit sales.

From the graph we can say that Ashraf textile received their receivable money from the buyers within 101 days in 2005, 6 days in 2006 & 125 days in 2007. On the other, Saiham textile received within 14 day in 2003-2004, 6 day in 2004-2005 and 42 days in 2005-2006. Eventually we can say that Saiham textile was received money within short time rather than the Ashraf textile.

ii) PAYABLE TURNOVER: There may be occasions when a firm wants to study in own promptness of payment to suppliers or that of a potential credit customer. This ratio is calculated by dividing purchase into total A/C payable.

From the graph we can say that Ashraf textile paid their payable money to the sales within 138 days in 2005, 276 days in 2006 & 360420 days in 2007. On the other, Saiham textile paid within 35 day in 2003-2004, 10 day in 2004-2005 and 15 days in 2005-2006. Eventually we can say that Saiham textile was paid money within short time rather than the Ashraf textile.

iii) INVENTORY ACTIVITY: To help determine how effectively the firm is managing inventory and also to gain an indication of the liquidity of inventory. This ratio is calculated by dividing inventory into COGS.

The figures tell us how many days, on average, before inventory is turned into accounts receivable through sales. Here we see that Ashraf textile was faster than Saiham textile in case of inventory activity.

iv) TOTAL ASSET TURNOVER: The relationship of net sales to total assets is known as the total asset turnover, or capital turnover.

The median total asset turnover for the industry is 1.66. For this ratio analysis we saw that Ashraf textile & Saiham textile both are less efficient than the industry in this regard. On the other hand Saiham textile is in a better position than the Ashraf textile.

4.5 Profitability Ratio:

i) PROFITABILITY RATIO IN RELATION TO SALES: The ratio we consider is the gross profit margin or simply gross profit divided by net sales.

It is a measure of the efficiency of the firm’s operations, as well as an indication of how products are priced. From the above graphs we saw that Ashraf textile has relatively more effective at producing and selling products above cost.

ii)PROFITABILITY RATIO IN RELATION TO INVESTMENT: this profitability ratio relates profits to investment. One of those measures is the rate of return on investment, or return on asset.

The standard ratio compares for this is nearly 8%. From our analysis we found that Saiham textile ratio simply fluctuates. Their percentage is not so good. On the other handAshraf textile had negative percentage from 2005-2007.
