Subject: Financial Ratio Analysis

I have conducted the financial ratios of Del Campo Foods by using your financial statements and industry benchmarks. The years that have been analyzed are 2010, 2011, and 2012E. The first ratios will examine the liquidity of Del Campo Foods. The current ratio of assets to liabilities for 2010, 2011, and 2012 are 2.33X, 1.17X, and 2.34X respectively. In the years 2010 and the estimate for 2012E, the current ratio is good because for every dollar that the company owes, it has $2 in assets.

The industry average debt ratio is at 50%, so the only year that Del Campo's debt was high was in 2011. This means that the company is unable to meet its financial obligations. For the projected year of 2012, Del Campo has low debt compared to their total assets indicating that the company's level
