Notes
  • This paper identifies the most suitable functional ways of characterising the statistical distribution of various financial ratios for a cross-section of companies. To do this, the paper employs various transformation techniques and normality tests. The main results indicate that the ratios of current assets/​sales, quick assets/​sales, current assets/​current liabilities and quick assets/​current liabilities all follow a log-normal distribution. The statistical distribution of quick assets/​total assets can be approximated by either a log-normal or a gamma function, while for current liabilities/​total assets both normal and gamma curves are suitable. Only a normal distribution fits the ratios of current assets/​total assets and working capital/​total assets.
