Explanation

Total Assets is connected with Return on Assets.

ARRIS International PLC's annualized Return on Assets (ROA) for the quarter that ended in Sep. 2015 is

ROA=Net Income (Q: Sep. 2015 )/( (Total Assets (Q: Jun. 2015 )+Total Assets (Q: Sep. 2015 ))/ 2 )
=105.028/( (4558.675+4513.24)/ 2 )
=105.028/4535.9575
=2.32 %

Note: The Net Income data used here is four times the quarterly (Sep. 2015) net income data.

In the article Joining The Dark Side: Pirates, Spies and Short Sellers, James Montier reported that In their US sample covering the period 1968-2003, Cooper et al find that firms with low asset growth outperformed firms with high asset growth by an astounding 20% p.a. equally weighted. Even when controlling for market, size and style, low asset growth firms outperformed high asset growth firms by 13% p.a. Therefore a company with fast asset growth may underperform.

Total Assets is linked to total revenue through Asset Turnover.

ARRIS International PLC's Asset Turnover for the quarter that ended in Sep. 2015 is

Asset Turnover
=Sales/Average Total Assets
=Revenue (Q: Sep. 2015 )/( (Total Assets (Q: Jun. 2015 )+Total Assets (Q: Sep. 2015 ))/ 2 )
=1221.416/( (4558.675+4513.24)/ 2 )
=1221.416/4535.9575
=0.27

* All numbers are in millions except for per share data and ratio. All numbers are in their own currency.

Therefore, if a company grows its assets faster than its sales, the asset turnover will decline. This might be a warning sign for the business.
