Ratio Analysis of Colgate Palmolive (India) Limited
The most important tool for financial statement analysis is “Ratio Analysis”.
Ratio Analysis: It is an analysis of strength and weakness of an organization by establishing the quantitative relation among the balance sheet and income sheet of such an organization
These ratios that are used to assess a business's ability to generate earnings as compared to its expenses and other relevant costs incurred during a specific period of time. For most of these ratios, having a higher value relative to a competitor's ratio or the same ratio from a previous period is indicative that the company is doing well.
Net Profit Ratio:
N.P.R= PAT/ TOTAL REVENUE
Net profits show how much each dollar earned by the company is translated into profits. A low profit margin indicates a low margin of safety and higher risk that a decline in sales will erase profits and result in a net loss.
