Liquidity is one of the most essential factors for assessing the company’s position. In general, liquidity means the ability of the company to pay off its obligations as they mature. It relates to how easy it is able to convert its assets into cash.
The goal of the BS-thesis is to:
- outline the importance of execution financial analysis at a company, defining its resources and methods, such as horizontal, vertical and ratio analysis;
- consider the liquidity concept;
- define liquidity indicators and ratios, such as working capital, current ratio, quick ratio and cash ratio;
- analyze company´s liquidity position using ratio and horizontal method;
- research methods to improve the liquidity position of the company.
The financial statement of the company Marel Food System has been taken into consideration and analyzed its liquidity. The analysis has revealed that during the research period the liquidity ratios have declined, especially this trend was observed in 2008. Also, throughout the period liquidity ratios did not meet recommended standards, which may indicate a possible risk of default on obligations in both the short and long term. In order to avoid these risks, have been considered such ways as accounts receivables monitoring, managing accounts payable, payment of current liabilities, increasing current assets with equity and selling unproductive asset.
