Ratio Analysis at S & S Air, Inc.
Chris Guthrie was recently hired by S&S Air, Inc., to assist the
company with its financial planning and to evaluate the company's
performance. Chris graduated from college five years
ago with a finance degree. He has been employed in the finance
department of a Fortune 500 company since then.

S&S Air was founded 10 years ago by friends Mark
Sexton and Todd Story. The company has manufactured and
sold light airplanes over this period, and the company's products
have received high reviews for safety and reliability. The
company has a niche market in that it sells primarily to ind~
viduals who own and fly their-own airplanes. The company
has two models; the Birdie, which sells for $53,000, and the
Eagle, which sells for $78,000.

Although the company manufactures aircraft, its operations
are different from commercial aircraft companies. S&S
Air builds aircraft to order. By using prefabricated parts, the
company can complete the manufacture of an airplane in only
five weeks. The company also receives a deposit on each
order, as well as another partial payment before the order is
complete. In contrast, a commercial airplane may take one
and one-half to two years to manufacture once the order is

Mark and Todd have provided the following financial
statements. Chris has gathered the industry ratios for the light
airplane manufacturing industry.
