Quick Liquidity Ratio
- A ratio used to determine if a company has the short-term liquidity to make its financial obligations by selling its most liquid assets. Similar to the "current ratio", the quick liquidity ratio excludes inventory from the entity's assets. The quick liquidity ratio is calculated by subtracting the value of company's inventories from its assets and dividing that figure by the company's current liabilities. Also known as "quick assets ratio" or just "quick ratio."
