You will need to research the type of ratios that make up the;classifications in the question (profitability, liquidity, efficiency, gearing;and shareholder return). Your answer should be structured by showing the name;of the ratio in one column (ROCE for example) then a column for 2008 and a;column for 2007 and both of these columns will contain the percentages or;ratios. REMEMBER ? you must show the calculation and you should show 16 ratios.;NOTE: do not forget to "comment on the most important changes between 2008;and 2007" Problem;7.2 Tamalan plc - you will determine 16 ratios (if you don't have 16 then you;left something out) that demonstrates changes in profitability, liquidity;efficiency, gearing and shareholder return. Research the text because these;ratios are defined. For example;Gross profit/Sales xx.x/xx.x = xx.x% xx.x/xx.x = xx.x% Note - for;each year use a column format for both years.
