1. DSRI = Days Sales in Receivables Index

Measured as the ratio of daysÂ’ 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) = (1310.4 / 8603.9) / (1277.9 / 8287.1) = 0.15230303 / 0.15420352 = 0.9877

2. GMI = Gross Margin Index

Measured as the ratio of gross margin in year t-1 to gross margin in year t.

Gross margin has deteriorated when this index is above 1. A firm with poorer prospects is more likely to manipulate earnings.

 GMI = GrossMargin_t-1 / GrossMargin_t = (GrossProfit_t-1 / Revenue_t-1) / (GrossProfit_t / Revenue_t) = (2632.9 / 8287.1) / (2691.9 / 8603.9) = 0.31771066 / 0.31286975 = 1.0155

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 - (4654.3 + 1074.4) / 14293.1) / (1 - (4318 + 849.9) / 10799.3) = 0.59919821 / 0.52145972 = 1.1491

4. SGI = Sales Growth Index

Ratio of sales in year t to sales in year t-1.

Sales growth is not itself a measure of manipulation. However, growth companies are likely to find themselves under pressure to manipulate in order to keep up appearances.

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)) = (191.1 / (191.1 + 849.9)) / (245.4 / (245.4 + 1074.4)) = 0.18357349 / 0.18593726 = 0.9873

 SGAI = (SGA_t / Sales_t) / (SGA_t-1 /Sales_t-1) = (2021.3 / 8603.9) / (1960 / 8287.1) = 0.23492835 / 0.23651217 = 0.9933

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) = ((5787.5 + 2275.3) / 14293.1) / ((4464 + 2077.2) / 10799.3) = 0.56410436 / 0.60570593 = 0.9313

8. TATA = Total Accruals to Total Assets

 TATA = (IncomefromContinuingOperations_t - CashFlowsfromOperations_t) / TotalAssets_t = (NetIncome_t - NonOperatingIncome_t - CashFlowsfromOperations_t) / TotalAssets_t = (146.5 - 0 - 684.7) / 14293.1 = -0.0377
