1 Farm business analysis can be divided into the following: 1 Enterprise Analysis. Often important to estimate profitability of individual enterprises. 2 Financial. Focuses on capital position of the business. Includes solvency, liquidity, and changes in net worth. 3 Profitability. Analyzed by comparing income and expenses. Short-term profitability measured by net farm income. Long-term profitability measured by return on assets.
2 Efficiency of Production and of Input Use Refers to measures of biological parameters. Measures of the efficiency of input use. These should be used as assumptions in the business plan as a basis for the financial analyses in the plan. Once in business, the farm manager should re-calculate these and review these each year to make comparisons on farm performance from year to year.
3 Biological Parameters Gross yield (kg/ha) Net yield (kg/ha) Survival Growth (g/day) Average size of fish Weight of marketable products
4 Efficiency of Input Use Feed conversion ratio Fish production per worker Fish production per dollar of working capital Fish production per 1,000 fingerlings stocked
5 Profitability Measures Profitability = Total revenues - total costs A business that is both solvent and liquid will not necessarily be profitable. Farm profits are measured from the Income Statement
6 Profitability Measures Primary measure of farm profitability is : Net Farm Income Net Farm Income is a measure of the return to operator s equity, capital, unpaid labor, and management. Net Farm Income can be distributed among the four principal factors of production: land, labor, capital, and management
7 Gross Revenue Pie Payments to suppliers for feed, seed, fuel, etc. Rent to owner for rented land Interest to lenders for borrowed money Wages to employee NFI to operator for unpaid labor, equity capital, & management
8 Net Farm Income Total revenue Less total costs = Net income from operations Plus or minus the gains/losses from sales of capital assets = Net farm income
9 Return to Labor and Management Some businesses have more assets or borrow more money than others Net income from operations Plus interest expenses = Adjusted net income Minus opportunity cost of capital = return to labor and management
10 Return to Labor Return to labor is that portion of adjusted net farm income remaining after the opportunity costs of both management and capital have been subtracted. Represents the residual return to the owner for the labor input. = Return to labor and management Minus the opportunity cost of management.
11 Return to Management Return to management is that portion of adjusted net farm income remaining after opportunity costs of both labor and capital have been subtracted. Represents the residual return to the owner for the management input. Negative returns to management are not unusual, but positive net returns are the goal.
12 Return to Management = Return to Labor and Management Minus the opportunity cost of labor.
13 Rate of Return on Farm Assets Can be compared to the rates of return on other long-term investments. ROA is independent of the type and amount of financing. ROA can be compared to other similar farms, returns from other investments, opportunity costs of the farm s capital & past ROA s for farm to measure profitability.
14 Rate of Return on Farm Assets = Return to assets X 100 average farm asset value Return to assets = NFI + interest - opportunity cost of labor - opportunity cost of management
15 Rate of Return on Farm Equity More indicative of a farm s financial progress. Measures the percent return to owner s net worth or equity.
16 Rate of Return on Farm Equity = return on equity X 100 average equity Return on equity = Net Farm Income from Operations Minus opportunity cost of unpaid family labor Minus opportunity cost of management
17 Operating Profit Margin Ratio (OPMR) = return to farm assets gross revenue of farm Measures the proportion of gross revenues left after paying expenses
18 Operating Profit Margin Ratio (OPMR) Farms with large investments in fixed assets such as land & few operating expenses will show higher OPMR. Farms with more rented assets will have higher ROA but lower OPMR Only problem if both ROA and OPMR are below average - then problems of profitability are evident.
19 Financial Measures: Designed to measure the solvency and liquidity. To identify weaknesses in structure or mix of types of assets and liabilities. Primary sources of data to calculate financial measures are the balance sheet and income statement.
20 Financial Efficiency: Liquidity Liquidity is the ability of a business to meet cash flow obligations. It is important to keep financial transactions of the business running smoothly.
21 Current ratio Liquidity Measures = current farm assets current farm liabilities Quick indicator of a firm s liquidity Current assets will be sold or turned into salable products in the near future & will generate cash to pay debt obligations that come due. The higher the value, the more liquid the business.
22 Liquidity Working Capital Working capital is the difference between current assets and current liabilities. Working capital represents excess dollars available from current assets after current liabilities have been paid.
23 Liquidity - Interest Coverage Ratio Net income after taxes plus interest paid and accrued, divided by interest. Measured from the income statement. Interpretation: The higher the ratio, the less the burden of interest on income.
24 Interest Coverage Ratio Some texts list this as a measure of solvency and financial risk. Relates a firm s financial charges (interest) to the firm s ability to service debt. Indicates how much of the firm s returns to assets are available for every dollar in interest commitment. Covers a period of time, rather than a point in time.
25 Liquidity - Cash Flow Coverage Ratio Excess available cash divided by cash required for interest and principal payments. Calculated from the cash flow budget. Interpretation: The higher the ratio, the more favorable the liquidity.
26 Cash Flow Coverage Ratio Excludes payments on the operating loan balance because they are so flexible. Indicates the extent to which the excess cash generated by the business provides a cushion for or flexibility in covering these debt-servicing requirements.
27 Liquidity: Debt-Servicing Ratio Cash required for interest and principal payments divided by total cash available. Measured from the cash flow statement. Interpretation: The higher the ratio, the greater the burden of debt on cash flow and the lower the liquidity.
28 Cash Flow Risk and Sensitivity Ratios 1 Percent farm revenue can decline and still meet cash flows. (Excess available cash/ total cash available) 2 Percent farm expenses can increase and still meet cash flows. (Excess available cash/cash operating expenses) 3 Percent interest rates can increase and still meet cash flows. (Excess available cash/total liabilities)
29 Financial Efficiency: Solvency Refers to the value of assets owned by the business compared to the amount of liabilities owed. Indicates whether, if the business were to be sold, if there would be enough capital to be able to pay off the debts.
30 Solvency Measures The debt/asset ratio is a common measure of business solvency. It is calculated by dividing total farm liabilities by total farm assets using current market values for each. Debt/asset ratio = total farm liabilities total farm assets
31 Solvency Measures Smaller values are preferred to larger ones. Smaller values indicate a better chance of maintaining solvency of business should it be faced with a period of adverse economic conditions. A low debt/asset ratio may also indicate that a manager is reluctant to use debt capital to take advantage of profitable investment opportunities.
32 Measures of Solvency Equity/asset ratio Indicates what part of total assets is financed by the owner s equity capital. Equity/asset ratio = total equity total assets
33 Equity/Asset Ratio Higher values are preferred, but cannot exceed 1. If the equity/asset ratio = 1, then liabilities = 0. An insolvent business would have a negative equity/asset ratio because equity would be negative.
34 Solvency Measures Debt/equity ratio Also called the leverage ratio. Compares the proportion of financing provided by lenders with that provided by business owner. Debt/equity ratio = total liabilities total equity
35 Solvency Measures Smaller values are preferred. Debt/equity ratio will approach zero as liabilities approach zero. Very large values result from very small equity, which means an increasing chance of insolvency. New businesses tend to have low levels of equity which results in higher debt/equity levels.
36 Solvency Measures Change in Net Worth Indicates business growth, additional capital investment, and a greater borrowing capacity. Net Worth = total assets - total liabilities The objective of the business is to increase net worth over time, to accumulate capital.
37 Financial Efficiency Measures Gross Ratio: Total farm expenses divided by gross farm revenue. Interpretation: The lower this value, the more efficient the farm business.
38 Financial Efficiency Measures Turnover Ratio: Gross farm revenue divided by average total farm assets. Interpretation: The higher this value, the more efficient the farm business.
