Figure 1: current ratio
If the current ratio is less than 1, the company may not able to pay its debt at the due date.
From figure 1, both companies have their current more than 1. In the years 2007 and 2008, Carlsberg has higher current ratio than Guinness.
Guinness has higher current ratio than Carlsberg from the year 2009 to 2011.
Current ratio is used to measure company’s ability to pay short term obligation, and its formula is current assets divided by current liabilities. The higher the ratio, the company is more capable to pay its short term debt.
Figure 2: cash ratio
Creditors will look at the ratio indicates the ability of company repay its short-term liabilities, the higher ratio the better. In year 2007 and 2008, Carlsberg has higher ratio than Guinness, whereas Guinness has higher ratio from year 2009 to 2011.
Cash ratio is commonly used to measure company liquidity, and the formula is total cash and cash equivalents divided by current liabilities. Cash ratio is more conservative than current ratio as it excludes inventories and account receivables.
It also indicates that how much company’s assets are financed by debt. From the total debt ratio, investors and lenders can know that the leverage and the potential risk of one company with its debt load, where higher total debt ratio, the higher risk. In the year of 2007 and 2008, the total debt ratio of Guinness Anchor Berhad is slightly higher than Carlsberg. But from year 2009 to 2011, the Carlsberg’s level of risk is higher than Guinness especially in year 2009.
Total debt ratio indicates what is the proportion of debt are relative to its total assets, and the formula is total debt divided by total assets.
High debt equity ratio tells that a company depends more on debt in financing its growth. In year 2007 and 2008, Guinness’s debt equity ratio is higher than Carlsberg’s; yet from year 2009 to 2011, Carlsberg’s debt equity ratio is higher than Guinness. The cost of debt financing should not overweigh the revenue the company generates in order to protect the benefits of stockholders.
Debt equity ratio measures a company’s financial leverage; its formula is dividing total debt by stockholders’ equity. The ratio indicates the company utilizes how much proportion of debt and equity to finance its assets.
The ratio tells how many times a company can cover its interest expenses by its pretax earnings Company that fail to meet the obligation may face bankruptcy. In year 2007 and 2008, Carlsberg do not have any interest expenses, so the Times interest earned can’t compute. From year 2009 to 2011, Guinness seems to have higher ratio than Carlsberg, thus it is easier for Guinness to fulfill its interest payment.
Times interest earned is used to measure a company’s capability to meet its debt obligation. The formula is company’s earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) divided by interest expenses.
Low ratio means the company has excess inventories, it represent a fail investment with zero return. From 2007 to 2009 and year 2011 as well, Guinness has inventory turnover ratio slightly higher than Carlsberg. In year 2010, Carlsberg has higher inventory turnover ratio than Guinness.
Inventory turnover ratio tells how quickly a company sells off their inventories and replace over a period. Higher inventory turnover ratio means the company has strong selling operation.
The formula of the ratio is total sales divided by account receivable during the year. High ratio indicates that the company operates more on cash basis or the collection of account receivables is efficient. From the figure 7, both companies’ ratio is quite similar, in year 2007 and 2010, Carlsberg has slightly higher ratio, whereas in year 2008, 2009 and 2011, Guinness has higher receivables turnover ratio.
Receivables turnover ratio used to measure a company’s effectiveness in extending credit and collecting debts.
Return on assets varies on different industry, so it is a good indicator to compare company in same industry. Total asset of the company is financed by debt and equity, so percentage of ROA tells investors how effectively the company converting money invested into net income. The higher the ROA, the better, as the company is generating more income on less investment. From the figure 9, Guinness Anchor Berhad has very high ratio of ROA compare to Carlsberg from year 2007 to 2011
Return on assets indicates how efficient a company using its assets to generate profit. It is calculated by annual net income divided by total assets and displayed in percentage.
It is calculated by annual net income divided by total shareholders’ equity. ROE is a good indicator to compare companies in same industry. The higher percentage, the better, as the company well utilizes investment fund to generate high net income. From the graph, Guinness has very high ratio and more favorable compare to Carlsberg, because Guinness’s management has utilizes the investment fund well for the sake of the shareholders.
Return on equity ratio indicates how efficient a company generates net income using money invested by shareholders and it is expressed in percentage.
P/E ratio is very useful if comparing companies’ future growth prospect in the same industry. The P/E ratio indicates that how much dollar should be invested in order to get RM 1 of current earning. From the figure 15, from year 2007 to 2010, Carlsberg Brewery Malaysia Berhad seems less attractive because it have higher P/E ratio as investors need to invest more money in order to get RM 1 of earnings per share compared to Guinness Anchor Berhad. But in year 2010 and 2011, Guinness Anchor Berhad is less attractive.
The price-to-earnings ratio is a valuation ratio, and the formula is company’ market price per share divided by per-share earnings. Stocks with higher P/E ratio are expected to have higher earnings growth if compared with stocks with lower P/E ratio.
They are temporary reports. These statements are neither complete nor exact. They reflect only monetary transactions of a business.

Financial position is affected by several factors such as economic,
social and financial, but financial factors are being recorded in these financial statements
Only quantitative factors are taken into account, but not qualitative factors
such as prestige, reputation and loyalty of employees/consumers. Thus, investors might only look at financial report and miss out the potential.
Monetary unit is never stable under inflationary condition
Personal judgment of the accountant
Differences in accounting. The problem with this is that the companies may not use the same accounting methods. One might use first-in first-out inventory methods while another uses the average cost method
The problem with classification. We may not get an accurate picture of what a company actually represents.
A diversified company may be difficult to fit into a particular classification of companies. For example, a company may be involved in telecommunications, software and health-related devices.
When dealing with very large companies that have many different sources of income, the financial statements do not give you the entire picture
