McDonalds Company Summary From 2014 to 2018

McDonald's sells several food products, soft drinks, coffees, and other thirst-quenchers.  The quick-service restaurant services both breakfast and lunch menu items. As of 2019, the company runs over 37,000 establishments, including over 35,000 franchised-owned quick-service operations. The firm was founded in 1940.  Their headquarters is in Chicago, Illinois.  In the last several years, the company has been moving toward a healthier menu due to customer demand and governmental pressures.

McDonalds Financial Ratio Summary From 2014 to 2018

McDonald’s total asset turnover as fallen from .80 in 2014 to .64 in 2018.  This reduction shows that the company is utilizing its assets less efficiently.

Inventory turnover for the company has increased from 249 in 2014 to 411 in 2018.  This indicates that the company is carrying less inventory.  This is fantastic because less inventory means using less restaurant space for storage.  However, this also means that if the restaurant does not order stock optimally, then sellouts are bound to happen.  This will inevitably lead to lost revenues.  Not so great.

Accounts Payable turnover had decreased from 31.9 in 2014 to 17.4 in 2018.  This action screams that the firm is paying its Accounts Payable at a significantly slower pace over time.  In other words, McDonald’s vendors have to wait longer for their checks.  This may inevitably lead to less loyalty by suppliers.
