The paper uses current ratios and the quick test to evaluate the liquidity and the short-term solvability of Arctic and Polaris. The paper discusses how a company that is in short-term financial difficulties may have difficulties in the long run as well. The paper, therefore, assesses the liquidity status for a judgement on the overall financial health of the two companies. The paper explains that the current ratio is calculated by dividing the current asset value to the current liabilities value and, subsequently, compared to 1. For a company not to be in trouble with its liquid assets, its current assets must be greater in value than the current liabilities, so the current ratio has to be over 1.
