Determinants of Profitability of Food Industry in India: A Size-Wise Analysis
Ramachandran Azhagaiah,Raju Deepa
Management , 2012,
Abstract: Profitability is the profit earning capacity, which is a crucial factorin contributing to the survival of firms. This paper is a maidenattempt at estimating the impact of size on profitability, consideringthe ‘size’ as the control variable. For this purpose, the selectedfirms are classified into three size categories as ‘small,’ ‘medium,’and ‘large’ based on the sales turnover. The results show that volatilityand growth are the major predictors in determining profitabilityin case of small size firms while growth is important in determiningthe profitability of medium size firms. Capital intensityhas a significant positive coefficient with the profitability of largesize firms. The overall result shows that the larger the size of thefirm, the more the investment in long lived assets has helped toincrease the profitability of the firm unlike the trend in cases ofsmall size and medium size firms.

Ramachandran Azhagaiah,Candasamy Gavoury
Managing Global Transitions , 2011,
Abstract: Firms can use either debt or equity capital to finance their assets. Thebest choice is a mix of debt and equity. The present study mainly analyseshow far the capital structure (CS) affects the Profitability (P) of corporatefirms in India. The study tries to establish the hypothesized relationshipas to how far the CS affects the business revenue of firms andwhat the interrelationship is between CS and Profitability. This studyis carried out after categorizing the selected firms into three categoriesbased on two attributes, viz. business revenue and asset size. First, firmsare grouped into low, medium and high based on business revenue.Second, firms are classified into small, medium and large based on assetsize to establish the hypothesized relationship that CS has significantimpact on Profitability of Information Technology (IT) firms inIndia. For the study, a sample of 102 it firms was chosen by the Multi-Stage Sampling Technique. The data for a period of 8 years rangingfrom 1999–2000 to 2006–2007 have been collected and considered foranalysis. Regression Analysis (to analyze the unique impact of cs onProfitability), in addition to descriptive statistics such as Mean, StandardDeviation, and Ratios has been used. The study proves that therehas been a strong one-to-one relationship between cs variables andProfitability variables, Return on Assets (ROA) and Return on CapitalEmployed (ROCE) and the CS has significant influence on Profitability,and increase in use of debt fund in CS tends to minimize the net profitof the it firms listed in Bombay Stock Exchange in India.

Ramachandran Azhagaiah,Selvaraj Sathia
Managing Global Transitions , 2012,
Abstract: In the presence of market imperfections, leverage has the potential tohave an important influence on investment decisions. If a firm makesmoney on its borrowing (has favorable financial leverage), the shareholdersrealize higher earnings per share (EPS) than would be the casein the absence of debt, as the debt-equity ratio (DER) is a long termrisk measure. In the present study 25 textile firms, which are listed inBombay Stock Exchange are taken as a sample for the study periodfrom 2004 to 2008. The study reveals that the firms i. e. ACM, AFL, ASL,BASML, BCIL, GSM, GDPM and GJML show significant growth rate infinancial, operating and combined leverage.
The Relationship between Working Capital Management Efficiency and EBIT
Azhagaiah Ramachandran,Muralidharan Janakiraman
Managing Global Transitions , 2009,
Abstract: This paper is aimed at analyzing the relationship between Working Capital Management Efficiency (WCME) and Earnings before Interest&Taxes (EBIT) of the Paper Industry in India during 1997–1998 to 2005–2006. Tomeasure the WCME three index values viz., Performance Index (PI), Utilization Index (UI), and Efficiency Index (EI) are computed, and are associated with explanatory variables, viz., Cash Conversion Cycle (CCC), Accounts Payable Days (APDAYS), Accounts Receivables Days (ARDAYS), Inventory Days (INVDAYS). Further, Fixed Financial Assets Ratio (FIXDFARA), Financial Debt Ratio (FINDBTRA) and Size (Natural log of Sales) are considered as control variables in the analysis, and are associated with the EBIT. The study reveals that the Paper Industry has managed the WC satisfactorily. The APDAYS has a significant (–)ve relationship with EBIT, which indicates that by deploying payment to suppliers they improve the EBIT. The Paper Industry in India performs remarkably well during the period, however, less profitable firms wait longer to pay their bills, and pursue a decrease in CCC.

Azhagaiah Ramachandran,Veeramuthu Packkirisamy
Managing Global Transitions , 2010,
Abstract: The objective of this paper is to examine the association between the Corporate Leverage (CL) and the Dividend Policy (DP) of firms across industries in India in respect of Size of Corporate Firms. The investigation is conducted on a panel sample of 73 firms across industries [Cement, Chemical and Fertilizer, IT, Oil and Gas, Pharmaceutical, Shipping, and Textiles], which listed their shares in National Stock Exchange (NSE) in India for the period 1996–2007. The impacts of Capital Structure (CS) variables (leverage) on DP measures – dividend payout (Net dividend paid/net income) in the presence of some basic fundamental variables are considered to be the determinants of DP, using the Multiple Regression Technique (OLS method). The results of the cross-sectional ols Model for the selected sample firms under various sectors show that there is a significant effect of selected independent variables. Therefore, this study proves that the DP of Small Size, Medium Size, Large Size, and Overall Corporate Firms across industries in India is dependent on the level of debt in CS.

Dr. Ramachandran Azhagaiah,T. Sathish Kumar
Interdisciplinary Journal of Research in Business , 2011,
Abstract: This paper examines the corporate (financial and Pondicherry University, operating) performance of Indianmanufacturing firms, following the merger event from the economic-finance Puducherry-605 008, Indiaperspective. The study is based on short run analysis of two periods: viz three years prior to merger, and threeE-mails: sathishvethathiri@yahoo.com years immediately after merger covering a period from 2004 to 2010. We tested two hypotheses whether there have been significant improvements in the corporate performance of Indian manufacturing corporate firms following the merger event, using a parametric statistical t-test. To measure the corporate performance, ratios such as current ratio, quick ratio, working capital turnover ratio, inventory turnover ratios, total asset turnover ratio, fixed asset turnover ratio, gross profit margin, net profit margin, operating leverage, net fixed assets relative to net worth and total liabilities relative to net worth areextensively used. Empirical results show mixed results of pre-and post-merger values computed. The study proves that Indian manufacturing corporate firms involved in merger& acquisition (M&A) have achieved an increase in the liquidity position, operating performance, profitability, and financial and operating risk. Further, it is inferred that the overall efficiency of acquirer firms is also increased. The statistical analysis also supports for a significant relationship between the pre and post M&As level of the corporate firms’performance.

Case Reports in Clinical Medicine (CRCM) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/crcm.2016.52010
Abstract: A relatively infrequent form of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is the isolated apical variant and it is more common in oriental people, especially in the Japanese. It contributes 25% of cases of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy in Japan but only 1% to 2% in the non-Japanese population. It may occasionally present in the elderly and classically involve the apex of the left ventricle. An isolated apical right ventricular involvement had been detected in an elderly female by transthoracic two-dimensional echocardiographic imaging.
