Cash flow to total liabilities ratio:

Total Cash on Hand at end of year = 2,894,000,000
Total Liabilities = 17,859,000,000

Return to net operating ratio:

Net operating margin:

Net operating profit X 100 / net operating revenues
6,597,000,000 X 100/25,851,000,000

Return on total assets:
(Profit before taxation) X 100 / average total assets
9,291,000,000 X 100/40,556,000,000

Return on equity:
(Profit before taxation - taxation) X 100 / average equity
(9,291,000,000 - 2,694,000,000) X 100/22,697,000,000
