Benchmark – financial analysis on ikea

Refer to Tables A-1 through A-5 in Appendix II  I have attached them of the text for the  operational definitions of and formulas for numerous common financial  ratios, including profitability, liquidity, leverage, activity, and  shareholders’ return. Using these formulas, complete at least one ratio  from each of the five categories, though you may apply as many of the  ratios for which you can find the required information in the firm’s  financial reports. On your calculations page, specify for which formulas  you are solving.

In an assessment of approximately 750 words, address the following:

  1. Determine  which of the ratios provide the most key insights into the firm’s  current level of performance. How can you assess whether the results of  your calculations are positive or negative? Explain which of the ratios  give you reason to be concerned with the organization’s current strategy  and why.
  2. The Organizational and Operational Plans assignment  references the possible benefits and risks of forming a strategic  alliance. What would be the risks of forming a strategic alliance in  terms of the firm’s profitability ratios? Which of those five ratios is  most likely to reveal immediate information for analysis of the  alliance’s effectiveness?
  3. Considering today’s financial climate,  how likely is it that the organization could acquire the capital  necessary to support an aggressive value-enhancement strategy? From  where would that capital originate? Compared to current interest rates,  what do you believe is a realistic interest rate the firm might incur?  Which of the liquidity ratios will be impacted by the influx of capital,  if borrowed?

Submit your calculations with your written response.
