Solution Preview

Profitability ratios offer several different measures of the success of the firm at generating profits.

The gross profit margin is a measure of the gross profit earned on sales. The gross profit margin considers the firm's cost of goods sold, but does not include other costs. It is defined as follows:

1. Gross Profit Margin = (Sales - Cost of Goods Sold) / Sales
= (120,000 - 45,000) / 120,000
= 0.625

Return on assets is a measure of how effectively the firm's assets are being used to generate profits. It is defined as:

2. Return on Assets = Net Income / Total Assets
= 31,500 / 140,000
= 0.225

Return on equity is the bottom line measure for the shareholders, measuring the profits earned for each dollar invested in the firm's stock. Return on equity is defined as follows:

3. Return on Equity = Net Income / Shareholder Equity
= 31,500 / 64,000
= 0.49

4. Receivables turnover is an indication of how quickly the firm collects its accounts receivables and is defined as follows:

Receivables Turnover
= Annual Credit Sales / Accounts Receivable
= 120,000 / 22,000
= 5.55

The receivables turnover often is reported in terms of the number of days that credit sales remain in accounts receivable ...
