Interpreting Asset Turnover and Net Profit Margin Required 2 Would analysts be more likely to increase or decrease their estimates of stock value on the basis ofthese changes Explain what the changes in these two ratios mean The asset turnover ratio determines how well assets are used to generate sales This analysis indicates that the company has decreased its efficiency in using assets to generate sales from 209 in 2007 to 198 in 2008 Net profit margin measures a company s ability to control expenses while generating sales This analysis indicates that the company s performance is this regard has declined from 56 in 2007 to 45 in 2008 E511 Analyzing and Interpreting Asset Turnover and Net Profit Margin Required 3 Compute the debttoassets ratio for 2008 and 2007 2008 Debttoassets

Would analysts be more likely to increase or decrease their estimates of RadioShack s ability to repay lenders on the basis of this change Explain by interpreting what the change in this ratio means The debttoassets ratio indicates the percentage of assets financed by debt as a sign of the company s financing risk This analysis indicates that the company has increased its debt financing from 613 in 2007 to 642 in 2008 Analysts would likely decrease their estimates of RadioShack s ability to repay lenders because the company increased its relative reliance on debt financing making the company more risky
