The objective of this report is to analyze the scenario of Bata Shoe Company (Bangladesh) Ltd. as well as gathering practical knowledge from the financial context and establish a relation with our knowledge of the course. A key objective is to conduct a ratio analysis, developing common size income statement of the company and evaluate their performances by generating industry averages or industry standard values. To evaluate their performances against the industry standard values we have used the Do Pont System to analyze the ratios. The project includes application of various ratio formulas to find out the ratios required to understand the financial situation of the company in comparison to the industry average.

Before gathering all the information, we generated a clear and precise strategy to work. First we collected the Annual report of the company for the year 2005 & 2004. Then the ratios and industry standard values are generated using Microsoft Excel. Afterwards, the original reports are common sized using the format of our book (Principles of Managerial Finance, Lawrence J.Gitman.) Finally, implementing our learning in the course did the analysis part.

This report focuses on the various ratios under the criterion of liquidity, profitability, asset management, debt management, market value which are generated on the financial performances of the shoe manufacturing company naming Bata Bangladesh from Dhaka Stock Exchange of the year 2005.

T analysis part reflects our limited knowledge about the vast financial world. Furthermore, the assumptions made about various situations can be different from what it is in the real world. So, the content of the report may vary slightly from reality and the analysis in the report may not fully reflect the actual situation of the company.

Source of data
The information provided in this report was collected in several ways. We collected the annual report from people in parental level and other essential information was collected from the internet. Finally, they were manipulated with the help of the contents of our book.

All the calculations are done for the ratio shown in below:
Liquidity Ratios

1. Liquidity Ratio = Current Asset/Current Liabilities (Current Asset and Current Liabilities are taken from balance sheet) 2. Quick or Acid Ratio = Current Asset-Inventories/Current Liabilities (Current Asset, Inventories, Current Liabilities are taken from balance sheet)

Debt Management Ratios

7. Debt Ratio = Total Liabilities/ Total Asset (Total Liabilities, Total Asset are taken from balance sheet) 8. Times Interest Earned = EBIT/Interest paid on borrowing (EBIT, and Interest are taken from Income sheet) 9.

Comment: So the company has to take the initial steps to turn their Average payment rate faster than the industry average.

Analysis on Fixed Asset Turnover: Industry Comparison: The industry average for fixed asset turnover is 8.7 where the companys ratio of fixed asset turnover is 5.41. The fixed asset turnover indicates the efficiency with which


the firm uses its fixed asset to generate sales. The industry average is almost 1.6 times of companys ratio. Comment: Bata is not utilizing its fixed asset effectively to generate revenue. As a result the industry average goes up than the company ratio. However, the company has acquired new fixed assets during the year due to which the fixed asset turnover is lower Analysis on Total Asset Turnover: Industry Comparison: In the recent year the industry average is 1.1 where the company ratio is 1.65.

Relate ROA and ROE-----

ROA = = =

Earnings available to common stockholder/ Total Asset (Earnings available to common stockholder/ sales) * (Sales / Total Asset) Net Profit Margin * Total Asset Turnover

ROE = = =

Earnings Available to common stockholder/ Common stock Equity (Earnings available to common stockholder/ Total Asset) * (Total Asset/ Common stock Equity) ROA * FLM (Financial Leverage multiplier)

CALCULATION: ROA = = FLM = = = ROE = = = 6.74% * 1.65 11.12 % Total Asset / Common stock Equity (341664110+5535554+1507240857)/ 746888105 2.48 ROA *FLM 11.12% * 2.48 27.58 %


DUPONT System Analysis

The DuPont Equation is designed to show that how the profit margin on sales, the total asset turnover ratio, and the use of debt interact to determine the rate of return on equity. The DuPont formula enables the firm to break down its return into profit on sales and efficiency of asset use components. In our findings we have found the following ratios: Return on Total Assets (ROA) = = Tk.206638315 Tk.1854440521 11.14 %

Return on Common Equity (ROE) = = Tk.206638315 Tk.746888105 27.67 %

From the above ratio we can trace that Batas high ROE is primarily the consequences of fast collections of accounts receivable, which resulted in low levels of receivable and therefore low levels of total assets. The low total assets slowed Batas total asset turnover driving up its ROA, which then drove up its ROE. By using the DuPont system of analysis to combined Batas overall returns as measured by its ROE. The advantage of DuPont system is that it allows the firm to break its return on equity into a profit on sales component (net profit margin), an efficiency of asset use component (total asset turnover), and a use of financial leverage component (financial leverage multiplier). The total return to owners therefore can be analyzed in these important dimensions.


After completing the analysis part we have recommended some suggestions which they may follow: 1. Though the current ratio of Bata is in a better position than the industry average but their quick ratio is very poor compared to the industry average. Inventory is the least liquid current asset. Analyzing the quick ratio we can say that the companys inventory management is not so good. If they keep on carrying their inventory for a long time then there is a possibility of their inventory becoming obsolete. So they have to focus on their inventory management system. 2. Although their inventory turn over ratio sounds good but it is less than the industry average ratio. We know from the quick ratio that their inventory management is not good enough. If they run their company with the same inventory ratio they wont be able to cope with the industry standard to be in the market. 3. They need to improve their average payment period otherwise the lenders and the suppliers would not be interested to invest or supply goods on credit to the company. 4. They must improve their price per earnings as this will attract investors as it indicates the degree of confidence of the investor in the firms future performance.


What we have learned from this project

As BBA graduates, in the near future when we will be a part of the corporate activities, it will be important for us to understand the financial situation of the company we will be working for or will be running. This project gave us an opportunity to learn several important aspects about the finance of a company. We learned to prepare common size income statement and calculate ratios from the figures of the companys balance sheet and income statement. We have also learned how to interpret financial ratios to analyze and monitor a firms performance. It helped us to gather practical knowledge from the financial context and establish a relation with our knowledge of the course.

Bata Shoe Company Ltd. is one of the leading companies in the footwear manufacturing industry in Bangladesh. Analyzing the overall ratios we have found that although their overall performance is good but they need to focus on some areas where they need to improve their performance which will in turn boost up their profit and will help them to battle with their competitors.
