I work on Ratio Analysis at KANSAI NEROLAC PAINTS LTD. LOTE. It is

decisive subject to study the procedure, methods, merits and demerits of Ratio

Analysis. I referred various resources person like Mr.Vinod Kadam sir (Head of

Accounts Department); I got lot of information on the topic.

Company having both domestic and abroad customer and company is satisfying

them by providing quality material as well as quick supply of material.


Kansai Nerolac Paints Ltd (KNPL) was established in 1920.It is a subsidiary of

Kansai Paint Co. Ltd., Japan.

KNPL operates in India and also has operations in Nepal and Sri Lanka through

Joint Ventures with Kansai Nepal and Capital Holdings Maharaja Group

respectively. KNPL has presence in multiple market segments of the paint market

viz. Decorative, Automotive, Auto Refinish, Wood Coatings, General Industrial,

Coil Coating, Floor Coating, Performance Coatings and Powder Coatings.

In the Decorative Paint Market, Nerolac is positioned as an environmentally

conscious brand which is synonymous with Health. The tag line of the Company,

Healthy Home Paints emphasizes the focus of the Company on environment


KNPL is one the most preferred vendors for Industrial paints in the country. Over

the years the Company has worked tirelessly to create value for its customers and

is acknowledged as the market leader in Industrial coatings. Many of the leading

players in the Automobile industry trust Nerolac to service their paint

requirements. This leadership has been made possible

Through a combination of customer insights, customized R&D, quality, service,

value engineering and delivery.

KNPL has 4 factories located at Jainpur (UP), Lote (Maharashtra), Bawal

(Haryana) and Hosur (Tamil Nadu). In addition, a new state of the art facility will

be commissioned at Sayakha (Gujarat) to cater mainly to automobile customers.

These factories provide customers with an unmatched range and flexibility to cater

to their requirements in the shortest possible time.

As announced earlier, the Company is setting up a Decorative Plant at Amritsar

and work is progressing satisfactorily at the site. Another Greenfield plant at

Vishakhapatnam which has been announced is being planned, and work for which

will start shortly.

The Company currently has a state-of-the-art R&D facility in Mumbai. A new

cutting edge Research & Development center at Vashi will shortly commence

operations in FY 18-19.

Customer satisfaction is the central goal around which KNPL functions. The

requirements of customers are paramount and are constantly evolving. KNPL uses

its Research and Development to develop unique

Customized solutions for its customers. KNPL has continuously focused on

introducing new technology for the customer every year. Notable introductions this

year were products such as Anti-Graffiti coatings, Rebar Coating for Concrete and

Super durable Powder.

In a market which is growing and a strong foundation, KNPL is now looking

towards unleashing the next era of growth for the Company.

The Company continued its growth momentum in Nepal with high double digit

volume and value growth. The Company successfully completed brand migration

from ‘Nerolac’ to ‘KNP’. The company name was also changed to KNP Japan

Private Limited.

The Company entered Sri Lankan paint market by way of a joint venture with

Capital Holdings Maharaja, which is one of the biggest conglomerates in Sri

Lanka. The Company successfully started a Greenfield plant and launched entire

range of Decorative Paints (Water-based and Solvent-based).


2017-18 was an eventful year for the domestic market. The introduction of GST

ushered in a new era in Indian business. The Paint industry successfully adopted

the new Tax system put in place.

The industry did feel the impact of demonetization as well as GST and demand as

a whole for the industry was subdued in both the segments. The organized players

are expected to perform better than the small and medium scale players. The

industry however views GST as positive and beneficial in the long run.

The industry witnessed inflationary pressures through-out the year. Higher prices

of crude, exchange rate volatility and the larger geo-political climate added to the

uncertainty. In addition tough environmental legislations in China impacted global

supply chains of many key ingredients adding to availability as well as inflationary


The industry has partially been able to pass on the cost increase in the market.


1. Favorable Economic Scenario

With major policy decisions such as Demonetization and GST

implementation completed, the country is now moving towards

consolidation. Infrastructure reforms, Job growth, affordable housing are

among the top priorities for the government this year.

2. Impetus to the Rural Economy

The Rural economy was given a boost with significant steps such as a

healthcare plan, and an increase in the Minimum Support Price for farmers

by 50% announced in the Budget for 18-19. This will increase income in the

hands of the rural consumer and hence be an opportunity for growth.

3. Real Estate Sector & Interest Rates

The real estate sector was expected to make a turnaround during the past

year, however, the weakness in the market continued for most of the year

despite low interest rates. During the final quarter, demand started to pick up

and is expected to continue this year while interest rates continue to remain


4. Opportunities due to climate change

The Company has embarked upon growth agenda using climate change as an

opportunity. The Company’s innovation in products and technology has

helped to curtail energy consumption on customer production lines. Super

durable coating solutions have been helping its customers to enhance life of

their products. In its operations, the Company is taking advantage of lower

rates of renewable energy.

1. New Competitors

New Competitors are entering the Indian Paint Market. KNPL endeavors to

be proactive in countering any challenges that may arise due to increased

competition in the market.

2. Crude Oil Prices and Inflation

Crude oil prices are putting pressure on raw material prices used for Paint

manufacturing, which is in turn putting pressure on the bottom line. Inflation

is expected to be high. KNPL is trying to offset this effect through a

combination of internal initiatives and price increases from its customers.

3. Availability of raw materials

With the tightening of environmental controls in China, there is a cascading

effect on global supply chains for key raw materials for the paint industry.


During the year, embedded digital, Business continuity, GST readiness and

Security were the key IT initiatives. Continuing the investment made in the in-

memory computation capabilities, in the current year, KNPL has taken steps

towards leveraging new embedded digital technologies like Machine Learning,

IOTs and Advanced Analytics. These technologies would enable KNPL to have a

deeper insight into the data. This would help enhance the service capabilities of the

Sales and Manufacturing functions to the market.

To provide real time information to the customers and influencers, KNPL has

implemented the Dealer portal for the Decorative customers and enhanced the call

center to connect with the influencers. Various processes in supply chain,

procurement, Manufacturing and Finance were re-engineered to provide visibility

into the various Key Performance Indicators and enhance effectiveness. Further

KNPL aligned all its IT systems to the GST enabled Eco system.

As part of the Business Continuity initiative, Near Disaster Recovery site was

made operational for key applications. Taking cognizance of the changing IT

environment and to insulate against the various security risks, KNPL has

augmented its security solutions framework.

To study the Strength and weakness of KNPL LOTE.

Ratio Analysis is a form of Financial Statement Analysis that is used to obtain a

quick indication of a firm's financial performance in several key areas. Financial

ratios are categorized according to the financial aspect of the business which the

ratio measures.

Financial ratios allow for comparisons

1. between companies

2. between industries

3. between different time periods for one company

4. between a single company and its industry average

Ratios generally hold no meaning unless they are benchmarked against something

else, like past performance or another company. Thus, the ratios of firms in

different industries, which face different risks, capital requirements, and

competition, are usually hard to compare.

In the analysis of financial statements, it is better to have a complete understanding

of the different types of ratios, their calculation, and interpretation.

Financial ratios can be classified into five types as follows.

1. Liquidity ratios

2. Asset Management ratios

3. Leverage ratios

4. Profitability ratios

5. Valuation ratios

1. Liquidity ratios

Liquidity ratios asses the firm`s ability to meet its short- term obligations using

short-term assets. The short-term obligations are the ones recorded under current

liabilities that come due within one financial year. Short-term assets are the current

assets. There are three (03) important liquidity ratios.

a. Current ratio

The current ratio (CR) is equal to total current assets divided by total current

liabilities. This indicates the extent to which current liabilities can be paid off

through current assets.

current assets
current ratio =
current liabilities

b. Quick asset Ratio

One Key problem with the current ratio is that it assumes that all current assets can

be converted in to cash in order to meet short-term obligations. We know this

assumption is highly untrue. Firms carry current assets, such as inventory and pre-

paid expenses which cannot be converted into cash quickly. To correct this

problem, the quick asset ratio (QAR) removes from current assets less liquid

current assets, such as inventory and pre-paid expenses, which cannot be converted

into cash quickly. The quick ratio, also called the acid test ratio, is equal to liquid

current assets, divided by current liabilities. It indicates the extent to which current

liabilities can be paid off through liquid current assets such as cash, marketable

securities, and accounts receivables.

Current asset
Quick asset ratio = − inventory
Current liabilities

c. Cash ratio

The cash ratio goes a step further and examines the ability of the firm to settle

short-term liabilities using only cash and cash equivalents such as marketable

securities. In other words, the cash ratio indicates the extent to which current

liabilities can be paid through very liquid assets.

cash ratio = + mareketable securities
current liabilities

2. Asset management ratio

Asset management ratios also known as efficiency ratios indicate the efficiency of

the use of assets in generating sales. There are five (05) more important efficiency

ratios: average collection period, inventory turnover, cash conversion cycle, fixed

assets turnover and total assets turnover.

a. Average collection period

The average collection period (ACP), also known as days’ sales outstanding

(DSO), indicates the average length of time the firm must wait after making

a credit sale before it collects cash. In other words, it shows the average

number of days’ accounts receivables remain outstanding. The ACP is

calculated as follows:

average collection period =
annual credit sales⁄365

b. Inventory stock/turnover ratio

The inventory turnover indicates whether inventory levels are reasonable in

relation to cost of goods sold. Inventory Turnover ratio is calculated as


cost of goods sold
inventory stock =
averege inventory

Lower inventory turnover ratio relative to the industry standard may indicate

excessive, obsolete, or slow moving inventory, while higher turnover may

indicate inadequate inventory and perhaps possibility of inventory shortages.

c. Cash conversion cycle

The cash conversion cycle shows the average number of days the cash is tied

up in inventory and receivables. Typically, a firm buys inventory, and cash

is tied up in inventory for a number of days before they are sold and

converted in to receivables. Thus beyond the initial period in which cash is

tied up in inventory, there is an additional time period where cash is tied up

in receivables. However, firms are also able to obtain inventory on a credit

basis, to that extent, the firm does not tie up its own funds in building

inventory. Hence, the total number of days’ cash is tied up in inventory and

receivables can be determined as follows.

cash conversioncycle

= inventory processing days + averege collection period

− payables payement period

d. Fixed asset turnover ratio

The fixed asset turnover ratio measures the efficiency of the use of fixed

assets in generating sales. It is computed as sales divided by average net

fixed assets, where the average net fixed assets is equal to the simple

average of beginning and ending balance sheet values of net fixed assets.

Net fixed assets are gross fixed assets less accumulated depreciation.

fixed asset turnover ratio =
averege net fixed assets

A lower fixed asset turnover relative to the industry may indicate that the

firm carries excessive fixed assets. A higher turnover may indicate

inadequate, low, outdated or depreciated fixed assets.

e. Total assets turnover ratio

Total asset turnover ratio measures the efficiency of the use of total assets in

generating sales. Total assets are sum of current and net fixed assets. The

total asset turnover is calculated as sales divided by average total assets. The

average total assets are the simple average of total assets at the beginning

and end of the period

total assets tunover ration =
averege total assets

4. Leverage ratio

The leverage ratios, also called debt management ratios, measure two key

aspects of the use of debt financing by the firm. The use of debt financing a

called financial leverage. We want to know the level of financial leverage

used by the business as well as the ability of the firm to service its debt

obligations. The debt ratio, debt-equity ratio and interest cover is discussed


a. Debt ratio

The debt ratio indicates the proportion of assets financed through both short-

term and long term debt. This ratio is computed as total debt, which is the

sum of short-term and long-term debt, as a percentage of total assets. A

higher ration indicates higher leverage. A higher ration also means lower

debt capacity in that the ability for the firm to raise funds through more debt

is lower due to already high debt levels.

total debts
debt ratio =
total assets

b. Debt –Equity ratio

The debt to equity ratio (D/E) is also widely used as an indication of the

level of financial leverage. While there are several ways of computing this

ratio, the most useful version is to express long term debt as percent of total

equity. Thus it focuses only on the long-term financing, both debt and
equity, and it is meaningful when we want to examine the long-term

leverage. Total equity includes both preferred equity and common equity. A

higher debt equity ratio indicates greater leverage and potentially higher

financial risk.

long term debt

debt equity ratio =
total debt

c. Interest converge ratio

The interest converge ratio, also known as the times-interest earned (TIE),

measures the ability of firm`s current operating earnings (EBIT) to meet

current interest obligations. It is the ratio of EBIT to interest charge. The

ratio shows number of times the interest payment is covered by the firm`s

operating earnings. The larger the coverage the better their ability of the firm

to service interest obligations on debt.

interest coverage ratio =
interest charge

5. Profitability ratio

The profitability ratios, also known as performance ratios, assesses the

firm`s ability to earn profits on sales, assets and equity. These are critical to

determining the attractiveness of investing in company shares, and investors

use these ratios widely. We will examine five important profitability ratios,

namely, gross profit margin, operating profit margin, net profit margin,

return on assets, and return on equity.

a. Gross profit margin ratio

The gross profit margin (GPM) shows the firm`s profit margin after

deducting costs of goods sold but before deducting operating expenses,

interest expenses, and taxes. This ratio is also known as gross profit ratio.

sales−cost of goods sold

gross profit margin ratio =

This is the first level of profitability. The GPM depends primarily on the

firm`s product pricing and cost control. The price of the product impacts

sales. Production cost such as material, labor, and overhead or the cost of

purchases affect the cost of goods sold. A firm with a better ability to price

products in line with inflation of cost of production and the ability to control

production costs or suppliers will be able to maintain or increase gross


b. Operating profit margin

The operating profit margin (OPM) shows the firm`s profit margin after

deducting cost of goods sold and operating expenses but before interest

expenses and taxes. The operating profit is the earnings before interest and

taxes or EBIT as a percent of sales.

operating profit ratio =

The OPM reflects the true profitability of firm`s business in that it is

calculated before deducting interest costs, which are a result from firm`s

financing decision, and taxes, which are outside the control of the firm. In

other words, regardless of the way the firm is financed, whether through

debt or equity, and regardless of the taxes imposed by the government, the

firm is able to earn this margin.

c. Net profit margin ratio

This is the bottom line profitability, which most analysts and investors pay

attention to on a regular basis. The net profit margin (NPM) shows the

firm`s profit margin after all the costs and expenses. It is the profit available

for distribution to common shareholders a percentage of sales.

net income
net profit margin =

Obviously, the lower operating profit margin is one reason for the lower

NPM. It is also possible that, since the firm is more debt-financed than an

average firm, it has more interest expenses as well. Since taxes are fixed, the

key difference between the OPM and NPM is interest costs, which are

linked to the firm`s financing decision.

d. Return on assets

The return on assets (ROA) measures the return earned on total assets

employed in the business. Sometimes, this is also referred to as the return on

total capital. Since total assets are financed through both debt and equity, is

important that the return measure used for this calculation reflects income to

both shareholders and debt holders. We define the return as the net income

available for distribution to shareholders plus the interest expenses paid to

debt holders. This return is divided by the average total assets, which

represents the simple average of the total assets at the beginning and ending

balance sheets.

net income + intrest expenses

return on assets =
avg total assets

e. Return on Equity

The return on equity (ROE) measures the return earned on the capital

provided by the common stockholders (Equity holders). It is the net income

as a percent of the average common equity, where the average common

equity is the simple average of the common equity at the beginning and

ending balance sheets. The net income is the income available for

distribution to ordinary shareholders after deducting any preferred


net income
return on equity =
avg common equity

6. Valuation Ratios

The valuation ratios indicate the market valuation of a stock in terms of

some measure of company fundamentals such as earnings, book value, cash

flows, and dividends. These are the ratios that investors tend to look at on a

daily basis. These ratios change whenever the price of the stock changes. We

will discuss the price/earnings ratios, the price/book value ratio, the

price/cash flow ratio, and dividend yield.

a. Price/Earnings ratio

This is the most widely used valuation ratio. It indicates the market price of

a share in terms of earnings. It is the rupee amount an investor has to pay for

each rupee of earnings made by the firm for the ordinary shareholder.

𝑚𝑎𝑟𝑘𝑒𝑡 𝑝𝑟𝑖𝑐𝑒 𝑝𝑒𝑟 𝑠ℎ𝑎𝑟𝑒

𝑝𝑟𝑖𝑐𝑒 =
𝑒𝑎𝑟𝑛𝑖𝑛𝑔𝑠 𝑝𝑒𝑟 𝑠ℎ𝑎𝑟𝑒

The earnings per share (EPS) is calculated as the net income available for

ordinary shareholders divided by the number of issued shares.

𝑛𝑒𝑡 𝑖𝑛𝑐𝑜𝑚𝑒
𝑛𝑢𝑚𝑏𝑒𝑟 𝑜𝑓 𝑠ℎ𝑎𝑟𝑒𝑠

b. Price / Book Value Ratio (P/BV)

Price / Book Value are also a regularly reported and watched valuation ratio.

It indicates the market price of a share in terms of the book value of equity.

It is the rupee amount an investor has to pay for each rupee of book value.



The book value per share is calculated as the equity divided by the number

of ordinary shares outstanding.

𝐵𝑉 =

c. The price/cash flow

The price/cash flow indicates the price of a share in terms of the cash flow

per share. It shows the rupee amount an investor has to pay for each rupee of

cash flow generated.

𝑚𝑎𝑟𝑘𝑒𝑡 𝑝𝑟𝑖𝑐𝑒 𝑝𝑒𝑟 𝑠ℎ𝑎𝑟𝑒

𝑝𝑟𝑖𝑐𝑒 =
𝑐𝑎𝑠ℎ 𝑓𝑙𝑜𝑤 𝑝𝑒𝑟 𝑠ℎ𝑎𝑟𝑒

Although not widely reported, this is in fact a more useful ratio than the P/E

and P/BV ratios discussed earlier. This is because the price of a share must

be related to the actual cash flows generated by the firm to its shareholders.

There are a number of different definitions of cash flow, and the one we use

here is the most basic definition of cash flow. The cash flow is the net

income available for ordinary shareholders adjusted for non-cash income

and expenses included in the income statement. Since most common non-

cash item in the income statement is depreciation of physical assets and

amortization of intangible assets, the cash flow is calculated by adding these

two items to the net income.

d. Dividend yield values

The dividend yield indicates the dividend income as a percentage of the

investment. It is calculated as the common dividend per share dividend by

the market price per share.

𝑑𝑖𝑣𝑖𝑑𝑒𝑛𝑑 𝑝𝑒𝑟 𝑠ℎ𝑎𝑟𝑒

𝑑𝑦 = × 100
𝑚𝑎𝑟𝑘𝑒𝑡 𝑝𝑟𝑖𝑐𝑒 𝑝𝑒𝑟 𝑠ℎ𝑎𝑟𝑒

This is a particularly an important valuation measure for investors seeking regular

income. Investor who depend on income from their investments include retired

persons and well as pension and mutual funds, which invest with the primary

objective of maximizing the income return. These investors like to see a higher

dividend yield. Typically, higher dividend yields are associated with more stable

and mature companies such as utilities. Growth -oriented companies tend to pay

lower dividends such as at a higher multiple, and as a result, produce lower

dividend yields. The dividend per share (DPS) is the total dividends to ordinary

shareholders during a specific period divided by the number of ordinary shares


𝑡𝑜𝑡𝑎𝑙 𝑜𝑟𝑑𝑖𝑛𝑎𝑟𝑦 𝑑𝑖𝑣𝑖𝑑𝑒𝑛𝑑

𝑑𝑝𝑠 =
𝑛𝑢𝑚𝑏𝑒𝑟 𝑜𝑓 𝑠ℎ𝑎𝑟𝑒


Data collection is an important step in any project and success of any project will

be largely depend upon who much accurate you will be able to collect and how

much time, effort and money will be required to collect the necessary data.

5. Bank reconciliation under the guidance of Vinod Kadam Sir (Head of

accounts department)

Bank reconciliation is the process of matching the balances in an

entity's accounting records for a cash account to the corresponding

information on a bank statement. The goal of this process is to

ascertain the differences between the two and to book changes to

the accounting records as appropriate. The information on the bank

statement is the bank's record of all transactions impacting the

entity's bank account during the past month.

Bank reconciliation should be completed at regular intervals for all

bank accounts, to ensure that a company's cash records are correct.

Otherwise, it may find that cash balances are much lower than

expected, resulting in bounced checks or overdraft fees. Bank

reconciliation will also detect some types of fraud after the fact;

this information can be used to design better controls over the

receipt and payment of cash.


At the time of doing and completing my summer internship in KNPL LOTE LTD

.I had certain limitation, because of that I was not able to access deep information

related with my project.

 My project is totally related with finance so I was only permitted to work only

in accounts and Administration department.

 Because of limited work area and limited time, it was not possible for me to

gather precise and in depth information.

 The key persons like managers and executive of every company are always

trying to maintain secrecy for their internal records as well as actual financial

records and hence they never open each and every card in front of outsider or

interns. So I have also faced such limitation of secrecy.


On the basis of data analysis on working capital management in KNPL, the

Conclusions arrived.

a. The company has gross profit for the past four years (2014-15, 2015-16,

2016-17, and 2017-18) in negatives and the current liabilities are

increasing, in comparison to Current assets position. Hence, it is an

alarming sign for the smooth working capital management.

b. There is also satisfactory net cash flow from the operating, investing and

financing activities of the organization.

c. The company is in a better manageable position and the company’s

present status of maintaining current assets and current liabilities are


Finding and Suggestion

The profit Of the Company Is not in a good Position for That company
has to Take Alternative Actions such As

Increasing in Procurement

Production, and Control in Expenses Like, Administrative, selling Etc.

The firms have low current ratio so it should increase its current ratio
where it can meet its short term obligation smoothly.

Liquidity ratio of the firm is not better liquidity position in over the five
years. So I suggested that the firm maintain proper liquid funds like
cash and bank balance.

It should enhance its employee’s efficiency, more training needed to its

employees in order to increase its production capacity and minimize
mistakes while performing the tasks, also more safety precaution need to
implement to the employees who directly working on sugar production

The firm high inventory so I suggested that the firm must reduce the
stock by increase sales.

The direct material cost of the firm is very high so it’s my advice to the
firm that to decrease the direct material cost by purchasing raw material
from the other suppliers.

The firms should have proper check on the manufacturing process of the
