    are they on the verge of bankrupcy
     
  5. why don't you clowns go back to accounting 101

    instead of posting on ET

    :p
     
  6. Yes, genius, the more customers they have the more deposits they get, increasing their liabilities. Very risky strategy. They obviously would be much better off with no customers, get those liabilities down to zero.

  9. Daal, you are stupid person
     
  10. No, I don't think so.

    The word liabilities is misleading in this context since the $3,116,641,386 refers only to "Payable to customers". Others liabilities are exlcuded. The total liabilities are $3,245,016,934.

    The liabilities here in accounting do not equal to loans or something we need to settle as soon as possible. The figure alone says nothing as to whether a firm is on the verge of bankrupcy.

    There are some accounting ratios which may give you the idea of its debt settling capability (eg ratio of current assets to current liabilities)

    I hope this helps you to clear things up. :)
