<p style=”text-indent:.5in”>The ratio signals the frequency of Starbucks in converting debtors into sale; accounts receivable turnover increased in 2016 compared to 2015 due to a significant increase in annual credit sales. The rise in the ratio over the review period is favorable for Starbucks as it warrants generation of revenue; it indicates that customers bought commodities on credit many times and offset their balances in a short period.</p>

<p style=”text-indent:.5in”>The annual turnover of Starbucks is on the rise, and this guarantees profitability, which has a positive correlation with sales revenue. Furthermore, the accounts receivable also has an upward trend; the upsurge of the above signals an increase in credit sales, which boosts the total turnover of the venture. Moreover, an increase in inventories is an indicator of efficiency in the production process; these will match the growing demand of commodities offered by Starbucks as signaled by the rise of annual sales revenue&nbsp;(Starbucks 45). The increase of these variables complements the wealth maximization objective of Starbucks.</p>

Noted is the essence of liquidity ratios and the current ratio signals a decline in the ability of the company in offsetting maturing financial obligations with current assets promptly.
