Swedish Match Management Efficiency

Swedish Match AB has return on total asset (ROA) of 30.54 % which means that it generated profit of $30.54 on every $100 spent on asset. This is very large. Swedish Match management efficiency ratios could be used to measure how well the company manages its routine affairs as well as how well it operates its assets and liabilities.
The company has accumulated 15.89 B in total debt with debt to equity ratio (D/E) of 7.67, indicating the company may have difficulties to generate enough cash to satisfy its financial obligations. Swedish Match AB has a current ratio of 1.18, suggesting that it may have difficulties to pay its financial obligations in time and when they become due. Debt can assist Swedish Match until it has trouble settling it off, either with new capital or with free cash flow. So, Swedish Match's shareholders could walk away with nothing if the company can't fulfill its legal obligations to repay debt. However, a more frequent occurrence is when companies like Swedish Match AB sell additional shares at bargain prices, diluting existing shareholders. Debt, in this case, can be an excellent and much better tool for Swedish to invest in growth at high rates of return. When we think about Swedish Match's use of debt, we should always consider it together with cash and equity.
