Activity 12 - Vodafone Fixed and Current Asset Turnover ratios
We can work on these ratios together now, for practice purposes. Go to the database and find the data for Vodafone that you need to calculate the fixed and current asset turnover ratios. Calculate the ratios and discuss what you have found: include your views on the strength of the ratios and indicate the additional information you need to resolve any problems you might find.
Once you have carried out the basic ratio analysis, look back at the discussion on the total asset turnover ratio when we isolated the intangible assets for Vodafone and incorporate the intangible assets value in your analysis.
Did you get this?
Good news! Vodafone has an improved fixed asset turnover ratio: an increase of 50% over the previous year. We can see that this improvement is due to the turnover having increased at a faster rate than the increase in fixed assets.
