Ratios used for analysis are liquidity, profitability, solvency, working capital, investors and cash flow ratios. Analysis of common size statement is also given. I compared three years from 2012 to 214 and evaluated performance on basis of these three years. For common size analysis, I converted each value of income statement and financial statement into percentage and compared with previous years. Competitor analysis is also given in report. One of its biggest competitors is Adidas. I compared financial ratios with it. I used consolidated financial statements for different ratio analysis. Financial ratio analysisRatio analysis provides overview of company performance and evaluates financial situation of company. Financial ratios can be used to compare company’s trends and used to make comparison with other firms. These are used to compare solvency of company. CITATION inv15 \l 1033 (investopedia.com) It is analytical tool used by financial manager to evaluate firm on basis of data presented in annual reports. Ratio shows relationship of items. For ratio analysis, it is necessary that two items should relate with each other in some context. Values from Balance sheet, income statement and cash flow statement are used to calculate ratios for investments purposes as well as for company’s overview. CITATION Baj99 \l 1033 (Bajkowski, 1999). Ratios are used to analyze company on basis of over and under performance. Financial strength of company is analyzed by using values from financial statements to calculate ratios. Liquidity ratiosLiquidity ratios provide estimation of ability of company to pay its short-term obligations like accounts payable, accrued expenses and creditors. These ratios are used to analyze profitability by calculating current, acid test and quick ratio. Liquid ratios are calculated by using cash as well as near cash values. These collectively called as current assets. Urgent or short-term obligations are compared with current assets. These obligations are termed as current liabilities. Higher ratio indicates good sign of making payment by company easily in near future. In case of lower ratio, company can have difficulties in meeting current debs and obligations. CITATION Sal11 \l 1033 (Saleem & Rehman, 2011)Current ratioCurrent ratio is calculated by comparing current assets with current liabilities while quick ratio is calculated by comparing quick assets with current liabilities. Quick assets are obtained by subtracting stocks from current assets. There is no hard and fast rule about value of ratio. Company will be liquid in case of higher ratios. I analyzed Nike Inc. on basis of current and liquid ratio to measure strength of liquidity. These ratios are compared on basis of three years from 2012 to 2014. Current ratio for 2012 is 2.89. It is 3.47 in 2013 and in 2014; its current ratio is 2.74. This shows increasing trend from 2012 to 2013 and decreasing trend from 2013 to 2014. In 2013, current assets of company were $13630 million but in 2014 current assets increased as $13696 million. Current liabilities decreased from $3962 million to $5027 in 2014. CITATION Nik14 \l 1033 (Nike Inc, 2014) It means that decrease in ratio is not because of current asset it is because of current liabilities. Ideal ratio shows that it should not be more than 2. Quick ratioQuick ratio from 2012 to 2014 is 1.82, 2.31 and 1.71 respectively. It again shows reduction in 2014. This is also because of increased current liabilities. Current assets are increased less than current liabilities as shown earlier. This ratio is above 1 which is acceptable. Cash ratio for company is 0.97, 1.52 and 1.02 from 2012 to 2014 respectively. By comparing these two ratios with Adidas, it can be concluded that company it having higher ratios than its competitor does. It means that it is more liquid. In 2014, current ratio of Adidas is 1.68. CITATION gur14 \l 1033 (.gurufocus.com) . Profitability ratioProfitability ratios provide indication of earnings generation of company as compared to its expenses. There are several ways to evaluate profitability of firm.

Gross profit ratio is calculated by comparing gross profit with sales and multiplying with 100. Net profit ratio is calculated using net profit. These ratios are used for evaluating efficiency and performance of company. These are measured on basis on return and margin. Return ratios are used to measure efficiency of firm in generating return from assets and shareholders’ equity. Profit ratios provide efficiency as per performance by comparing profit generation capacity of firm from sales. Return on asset provides picture of firms earning by investing in assets. Return on equity is calculated by comparing net income with shareholders equity and it is most important ratio for investors as per investment point of view.

Efficiency as per asset management increased. CITATION nas15 \l 1033 (nasdaq.com)By comparing these ratios with Adidas provided surprising results. Its gross profit margin is 47% for year ended 2014. Return on equity for this company is 10.16%, which is less than Nike Inc. it means that as per generating from shareholders investments Nike Inc. is step forward from Adidas.

Debt to equity ratio is calculated by dividing total liabilities with shareholders equity. Interest coverage ratio is calculated by dividing operating income with interest expenses. For debt ratio ideal figure is 0.5. It means that assets should not be financed by debts more than half. Debt to equity ratio should be 1 in ideal situation.

In 2014 ratio is 2.39%. Total liabilities are increasing as compared to previous year. Ideal ratio is 0.5 but in this case, this ratio is alarming for company.

Higher ratio is goo but for this company ratio is reduced in 2014, that is alarming. This increase may be due to more interest expenses or lower operating income. Debt to equity ratio for Adidas is 0.23 in 2012, 0.12 in 2013 and 0.28 in 2014. Debt to equity ratio for Nike is better than Adidas. Interest coverage ratio is 13.46 for 2014.

Debtor day ratio is used to calculate how efficient company is in receiving debt from debtors. Creditor day ratio shows ability or efficiency of company in paying obligations to creditors.

This ratio is also showing increasing trend. This ratio is always compared with market price. If two companies are paying same dividend but share of one company is trading on low price other is trading on high price.
