In this new treatment of ratio analysis, we are reminded that people (not figures) get things done. That is why business management is considered an art. But without an understanding of the significant numbers generated by a company in its many reports, SUCCESS MAY BE ELUSIVE. Ratio analysis stimulates thinking. Thinking leads to the action & change needed to meet goals & solve problems. 101 BUSINESS RATIOS are organized into six groups--sales, profit, debt/capital, efficiency, marketing, investment. For each there is a clear definition essay explaining the ratio, three forms of equation for calculation. This is possibly the first book of its kind to utilize so many numbers not found in financial statements--things like floor space, back orders, employees, customers, transactions. The result is many entirely new measures to help managers better understand their companies. How to chapters discuss finding input numbers, calculating, & presenting the ratios. The reader is introduced to the way computers are used to process ratio information. A discussion of industry norms includes sample pages from leading publications. Recommended for managers, financial professionals, consultants. Hardcover with appendix, glossary, index. $24.95 plus $2.00 s&h.
