1. DSRI = Days Sales in Receivables Index

Measured as the ratio of days’ sales in receivables in year t to year t-1.

A large increase in DSR could be indicative of revenue inflation.

DSRI=(Receivables_t / Revenue_t) / (Receivables_t-1 / Revenue_t-1)
=(34.979 / 276.856) / (28.901 / 265.502)
=0.12634366 / 0.10885417
=1.1607

GMI=GrossMargin_t-1 / GrossMargin_t
=(GrossProfit_t-1 / Revenue_t-1) / (GrossProfit_t / Revenue_t)
=(56.625 / 265.502) / (55.39 / 276.856)
=0.83273949 / 0.8213909
=1.0138

3. AQI = Asset Quality Index

AQI is the ratio of asset quality in year t to year t-1.

Asset quality is measured as the ratio of non-current assets other than plant, property and equipment to total assets.

AQI=(1 - (CurrentAssets_t + PPE_t) / TotalAssets_t) / (1 - (CurrentAssets_t-1 + PPE_t-1) / TotalAssets_t-1)
=(1 - (175.044 + 25.171) / 201.97) / (1 - (139.888 + 18.065) / 173.337)
=0.00868941 / 0.08875197
=0.0979

4. SGI = Sales Growth Index

=Revenue_t / Revenue_t-1
=276.856 / 265.502
=1.0428

DEPI greater than 1 indicates that assets are being depreciated at a slower rate. This suggests that the firm might be revising useful asset life assumptions upwards, or adopting a new method that is income friendly.

DEPI=(Depreciation_t-1 / (Depreciaton_t-1 + PPE_t-1)) / (Depreciation_t / (Depreciaton_t + PPE_t))
=(6.536 / (6.536 + 18.065)) / (6.841 / (6.841 + 25.171))

=0.71520213 / 0.64992354
=1.1004

7. LVGI = Leverage Index

The ratio of total debt to total assets in year t relative to yeat t-1.

An LVGI > 1 indicates an increase$sgai= in leverage

LVGI=((LTD_t + CurrentLiabilities_t) / TotalAssets_t) / ((LTD_t-1 + CurrentLiabilities_t-1) / TotalAssets_t-1)
=((0 + 42.575) / 201.97) / ((0 + 31.419) / 173.337)
=0.21079863 / 0.18125963
