Gross Profit/Sales * 100
Net Profit After Tax/Net Sales *100
Net Sales / Total Assets
Total Debt / Total Debt + Total Share Holder Equity
Current Assets/Current liabilities
Current Assets-Inventory-Prepared Exp/Current Liabilities
GROSS PROFIT MARGIN
As the above ratio gross profit margin shows that company is not able to make its gross profit more. Cost of goods is very high which results in low gross profit .only in 2006 gross profit is good.
NET PROFIT MARGIN
as the above ratio net profit margin shows the negative results which means company is generating only loss. This loss is because of the increase in the cost of inputs like raw, material, energy, labor and finance cost.
ASSET TURN OVER RATIO
This ratio tells whether or not company is making enough use of the money tied up in the business. As above ratio from 2004 to 2006 is good because it shows that company is generating one and half of the capital employed but the problem is that company also facing high cost.
This ratio shows how much of business is being funded by the owners and how much of the business is being funded by borrowed money. The debt ratio is high in company's financial position which is not a good sign because fixed interest payments that must be paid regardless of the company profit level.
This ratio shows the relation between the current asset and current liabilities. This ratio is good at 2004 but its going decrease in 2005 and vice versa which is not good sign. Anyhow this ratio is satisfactory because current assets are able to meet the current liabilities.
The liquidity ratio shows the proportion of funds that can easily be turned into cash to pay the current liabilities. This ratio is good in all years except in 2008.
There is no trainings program offered to enhance the productivity of their technical staff. There is lack of skilled people and direct force in the region. The employee's turnover rate is high due to various circumstances mainly late payments for salaries.
The market of textile is changing day by day and the management of the company could not cope with these current changes of recession and inflation. If we took the management over another organization so we could not use the existing managers.
Management stated here all the departments like Finance, Marketing , Human Resource.
The employees are not feeling safe in their jobs so that they are not participating actively in the company. They are not able to remove automatically remove any litter they find.
The company is effected by financial position so the management could not pay the salaries amount to the employees in time , To earn money may be a prime motivator for many but there is relative importance of social contact, belonging to a group, feeling valued and needed, and obtaining recognition. The employees feel lack motivation simply because of the huge communication gap between them and the management and due to the lack of concentration of the top management to them.
DISSATISFACTION AMONG STAFF
One of the major weaknesses as in a majority of the companies is the lack of co-ordination between the management and the worker. In short there is a weak point in their Human Resource management. Workers feel that they are being exploited and are not given the remuneration that they deserve.
LACK OF TECHNICAL SKILLS
The organization has imported the latest technology but not prepare the people to use the technology by the same time. Because of this the organization faces the hidden cost.
LACK OF TEAM WORK
In any organization team work plays a vital role to enhance the production level. In Margalla textile mills there is no such kind of team work so there is misunderstanding between employees.
LACK OF COORDINATION
In the Margalla textile mills there is lack of co-ordination between the different departments which can be a barrier to achieve the organizational objectives.
New technology is available in the international market to meet flexible production level with cost effectiveness; the company can install those machineries and techniques to reduce cost and to improve the product quality.
The market which serves by the company is large. The competition is there in the market so there is barrier for new entrants because it required a great deal of capital. But Pakistan's textile products are well known in the international market.
Trade on World Wide Web is another opportunity for the industry. It allows the manufacturer to make available their products on the internet so that the cost ultimately decreased.
Change in environment
Change in the environment of the industry could be a favorable act for its survival. Change in environment means change in technology and the change in policies which are imposed by the Government.
The Pakistan is cultivating the cotton at vast level and suitable land for cotton cultivation. So the raw material is available within the country at enormous quantity.
In the international market Pakistan is known as a famous country in the textile industry which is producing a large number of textile products.
Kohinoor textile mills can expand their market to Switzerland Japan Italy and Canada.
RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT
The organization can improve their Research and development department to introduce new and latest design in the international market to compete with others.
There is continuous improvement in technology is going on through out the world, so Kohinoor textile mills can import new machinery & technology and can train their people to enhance their productivity level.
As the world is now globalizes then the new opportunities are also increased in textile industry. So Kohinoor can offer its product globally.
Advanced computer and information technology, telecommunication, data bases represents the efficient and effective medium for identifying and evaluating opportunities .There is an opportunity for Kohinoor textile mills to use market in technology and achieve more efficiency in productivity and more effectiveness in future as the technology is getting modern and more automated with the passage of time.
The textile industry is declining in employment terms, rising inflation, increasing imports, and the variation in the exchange rates in the country. So the industry is threatened by unstable economy.
Pakistan is also exaggerated from the economic recession in the current phenomenon, which affects about all the international and multinational organizations and the textile sector is affected by this economic recession and the exports of textile goods declined.
New political decisions about textile industry are not supportive because there is no subsidy is granted to the industry and the current scenario of inflation and economy recession is destructive for the textile industry. On the other side if there is change in the political circumstances in any country it would affected the quota's and MoU's as well.
The government is unwilling to provide further subsidies to the textile industry. The government is of the view that the textile industry has been 'pampered" enough and that they have provided the desired amount of incentives and concessions. They think that it is about time the industry resolve its own issues and bring about significant changes to ensure the sustenance and progress of the industry.
The Interest rates in Bangladesh, India and China are comparatively low than in Pakistan. As in Bangladesh the rates are 8.5 to 9.0% , 5.25% in India (market rate is 10.25% , however exemption of 5 % is provided to the textile industry) and 5.58 % in China. Meanwhile, in Pakistan, the interest rates to have risen more than 150 percent, to 13.25 percent in last three to four years. The increase in interest rates has essentially crippled the small time textiles owner, while seriously hindering the growth of the textile tycoons which led to textile owners accusing the government and banks for maintaining detrimental policies. I believe that the actions from the new government that have a positive impact on the industry, as the textile provides employment to approx 38 % of our working class. A coherent plan should be devised by the Pakistani government that allows some sort of exemption/concession such as in India; the Export-Import Bank was set up for the purpose of financing and facilitating the industries, especially textile.
The one of important problem that negatively affects the textile Industry of Pakistan is the non-guaranteed supply of power by WAPDA, due to which textile industry suffered heavy financial losses. Because of the the inconsistent electricity supplies, the production affects a lot, which resulted that industry could not meet its target for the quarter of Dec, Jan, and Feb, and the massive financial losses were borne by the textile owners, its also hit most vulnerable to the workers daily wages.
Inorder to cut cost, some textile units have built their own energy generating plants which runs on gas, but small units production depends entirely on the electricity supply of WAPDA.
RISISNG PRICES OF RAW MATERIAL.
The price of raw material is rising simultaneously so that the input cost is getting higher and due to the competition in the international market the prices of textile good is reduced by using new technologies in producing goods.
Good days in textile business are over. After the end of textile quotas the prices in the international market have come down, whereas in Pakistan with the increase in export refinancing rates during the year besides persistent rise in the raw cotton rates in local market cost of production has considerably increased, making our exports costlier than competing countries like China and India.
RAW MATERIAL EXPORT TO RIVALS COUNTRIES
The best quality raw cotton export to rival countries at the cheapest rates has posed threat to the value-added industry of the country. Exporters and manufacturers from value-added industry expressed serious concern over export of top quality raw cotton especially to those countries that are competitors like India, would badly hit the biggest foreign earning industry of the country.
Terrorism is another immense threat for the export division as textile industry has approximately more than 68 % share of the total export of the country.
LACK OF RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT
Due to the Lack of Research and Development in Cotton Sector of Pakistan, it resulted low quality of Cotton production and to low profitability,therefore farmers are shifting to other cash crops such as sugarcane, where the profitability is high.. Comparing the last year, the cotton area of Punjab alone sown less by 1.14 percent this season and because of the decreasing production of cotton every year, the textile owners argues about the ambitious Cotton Vision 2015 target of 20 million bales.
This is because of non existence of R&D in Textile Industry of Pakistan, which gives international competitors gaining more market share.
LACK OF INFRASTRUCTURE IN PAKISTAN
For the growth of an organization in any industry,the infrastructure plays an important role .Infrastructure facility like roads, power etc are not adequate in Pakistan due this lack of insufficient infrastructure cost incurring on there products is relatively high and there is a hindrance for proper and regular delivery in the market.
