  • Quick Ratio
    The Quick Ratio, which is also known as the acid-test ratio or the quick assets ratio, is an indicator of a company’s short-term liquidity. This ratio measures a company’s ability to meet its short-term obligations with its liquid assets. The higher the Quick Ratio, the better the position the company is in.
    The Quick Ratio is more conservative than the Current Ratio, a more well-known liquidity measure, because it excludes inventory from current assets. Inventory is excluded because some companies have difficulty turning their inventory into cash. There are situations when short-term obligations must be paid off immediately that the current ratio would overestimate a company’s short-term financial strength.
    The quick ratio is calculated as:
    Quick Ratio = (Current Assets - Inventories) / Current Liabilities
    The Quick Ratio for the Last 12 Months chart is linked to a grid that shows the quick ratio details.
