The current 0.9 ratio is mainly used to give an idea of a company's ability to repay its liabilities (debts and payables) with its assets (cash, negotiable securities, inventory, receivables). As such, the current relationship can be used to make a rough estimate of a company's financial health. The quick ratio of 0.6 is a measure of a company's ability to meet its short-term financial liabilities with fast assets (cash and cash equivalents, short-term marketable securities and credits). The greater the relationship, the greater the financial security of a company in the short term. A common rule of thumb is that companies with a rapid ratio above 1.0 are sufficiently able to meet their short-term liabilities.
