We need to show National Bank some ratios to convince them to extend line of credit next year as well. Debt Assets Ratio: This ratio tells us how much of the company's assets have been financed by debt and is used to measure company financial risk. In this case the estimate was as low as 41% which turned out to be 48% in Q1, though in Q1 and Q4 the difference between pro forma and Actual was not much. The min shift b/w actual and estimated is found to be 2% and maximum of 7%. Though the debt/ Assets ratio is not low so there is a risk involved with the company as approximately around 45% of the asset is on debt.

Working Capital Turnover (WCT): On analyzing yearly WCT, we can see that there has been a marked increase (40.29 in pro forma and 41% in actual). This shows that their working capital management has increased from last year. The quarterly trend in WCT shows that due to seasonality effects, the working capital varies quarterly, but the actual and proforma ratios show almost similar trends. Thus, working capital management has not reduced from last year.

The credit obtained from bank and cash from sales is not only used in operating activities, but also to finance the dividend payments (Rs 400 lac) and investing in the change in net block (Rs 830 lac). Moreover, the company is keeping a ready pile of cash. This shows that the company has a healthy credibility if it becomes a bit less conservative about its outlooks.
