Explanation Earnings per share (EPS): The amount of net income available to each shareholder per common share outstanding is referred to as earnings per share (EPS). Gross margin (gross profit): Gross margin is the amount of revenue earned from goods sold over the costs incurred for the goods sold. Net margin: This ratio gauges the operating profitability by quantifying the amount of income earned from business operations from the sales generated. Asset turnover ratio: The Asset turnover is a contrast to the profit margin ratio and it is calculated to determine the net sales and average total assets. Use the following formula to calculate the asset turnover ratio: Asset turnover =NetsalesAverage total assets Return on assets: Return on assets is the ratio of the net income, and interest expense to the average total assets. The rate of return on total assets measures the efficiency of the business. It measures how efficiently the business is using its total assets in generating the income. {Return on assets}=Net incomeTotal assets Accounts receivable turnover: Accounts receivable turnover is a liquidity measure of accounts receivable in times, which is calculated by dividing the net credit sales by the average amount of net accounts receivables.

Average collection period: Average collection period indicates the number of days taken by a business to collect its outstanding amount of accounts receivable on an average.

Calculate the earnings per share of Company B: Earnings per share = Net incomePreferred dividendsAverage common shares outstanding=$24,000$010,000=$2.40

1. 2.      Calculate the gross profit margin of company B:

Gross profit margin=Gross profitNet sales=$107,000$267,000×100=40.07%

1. 3.      Calculate the operating profit margin of company B:

operating profit margin=Operating incomeNet sales=$45,000$267,000×100=16.85%

Net profit margin=Net incomeNet sales=$24,000$267,000×100=8.99%

1. 5.      Calculate the total asset turnover ratio of Company B:

Total Assets turnover ratio=Net salesAverage total assets=$267,000$390,000 (1)=0.68

Working note (1):

Calculate the value of average total assets.

Average total assets=[Total assets in balance sheet+Total assets in adjustments]2=$400,000+$380,0002=$780,0002=$390,000
