dc.description.abstractThis study looks at two categories of retailers to find differences in averages in financial ratios. The first group of retailers has adopted a successful online model that allows consumers to purchase products directly from their websites. The other group of retailers did not adjust to the change in the market and stayed with a traditional brick and mortar model. This group faces financial distress and bankruptcy. This study analyzes various financial ratios in profitability, efficiency, leverage, and liquidity. A comparison is completed between the two groups, allowing averages to be analyzed to determine which ratios are most valuable to retailers in understanding their risk of financial distress and bankruptcy.en_US
