Reread “All Is Not Paradise in Eden’s Garden,” parts 1 and 2,( Attached below) in files found at the end of subsection LO 4 of this week’s chapter of your text.
Assume the role of Shelly Edison (the accountant) and calculate the following ratios. Using the financial statements for Eden’s Garden, calculate the following ratios:
- Current Ratio
- Quick Ratio
- Debt Ratio
- Times Interest Turnover Ratio
- Average Inventory Turnover
- Average Collection Period
- Average collection period in days
- Average Payable Period
- Average payable period in days
- Net Sales to Net Assets
- Net Sales to Working Capital
- Net Profit on Sales
- Net Profit on Equity
What recommendations can you make to Eden’s to improve their company’s financial performance in the future?
Your paper should be 3-5 pages in length and conform to the APA Style with in text citations. Calculations of the ratios should be shown in an appendix (Xcel spreadsheets would work as well) in APA format while the body of the paper is used for explanations and recommendations.
