    Answer of Question 1:-

    Compute current ratio of ABC Company before and after the credit sales have been
    made to A & N Co.

    As we know the formula

    Current Ratio = Current Asset / Current Liabilities
    =0.83 times
    Abc company has $0.83 in current asset for every $1 liabilities or
    Abc Company has its current liabilities covered 0.83 time less.
    After credit sale made
    Credit sale “20” million will add in account receivable
    Account receivable will rise from 50+20 (credit sale)
    Account receivable =50+20=70
    11 million will go in inventory account
    Which is 450+11=461million

    Debt equity ratio = total debts/total equity =34% / 66% = 0.515

  2. Comment on as how the change in Debt to Equity Ratio would affect the decision of
    the financial institution if the company requests for a further loan.


    * In this Company’s case we come to know about its Balance Sheet shows that its Current Ratio and Liquidity Position is not so good. Because its current ratio is less than 1 which is 0.83: 1 before sale and after sale it goes onto 0.84 : 1 still less than 1.
    * On the other hand we have the company’s Liquidity Position, which is also not satisfactory because it also less than 1.
    * Now the question of Further Loan; the Financial Institution will give them more loan because the company’s Debt- Equity Ratio is good.
    * Because the Debt- Equity Ratio is 60 : 40. Means in any company the Financial Institution invest 60% of cash and the rest 40% invested by the company.
    * The company should less its Inventory and try to sale more of it.

    Question No 03 Answer:-

    As we know that
    Debt Equity Ratio = Total Debt/ Total Equity
    Debt-Equity ratio before loan:
    a) Total Debt Ratio = Total Assets- Total equity / Total Assets
    = 3540 – 2320 / 3540
    = 0.344%
    100% – 34.4% = 65.6%
    Total Debts = 34.4%
    Total equity = 65.6%
    Debt-equity ratio = Total Debts / Total Equity
    = 34.4% / 65.6%
    = 0.524 time
    Debt-Equity ratio after loan:
    b) Total Debt ratio = total Assets – total equity / total Assets
    = (3540+51) – (2320+51) / (3540+51) 3591-2371/3591
    = 3591 – 2371 / 3591
    = 1220 / 3591
    = 0.339 times
    100% – 33.9% = 66.1%
    Total Debts = 33.9%
    Total equity = 66.1%
    Debt-equity ratio = total debts / total equity
    = 33.9% / 66.1%
    = 0.512 times
