ExPro Reference: The current ratio is a liquidity ratio that measures a company's ability to pay short-term obligations or those due within one year. It tells investors and analysts how a company can maximize the current assets on its balance sheet to satisfy its current debt and other payables. The normative indicator is in the range of 1-3.
The EBITDA (Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization) margin indicates the profitability and rate of return of the company before taxes, interest on loans, and depreciation, i.e. how much EBITDA is generated (profit before taxes, interest payments, depreciation) per 1 UAH of revenue.
