This was the result of improved management of operations, reduction of inventory time in the Company’s operating cycle..
While the liabilities /total assets ratio has not changed much over the years, the liabilities/total capital ratio tended to increase sharply in 2016 as compared to the same period last year with an increase of 165, 4% to 198.1%.
