As can be seen from the table the key performance indicators and ratios have been on a decline since 2005 till 2008 except for the current ratio and debt to assets ratio although the bank faced liquidity problems in 2008 the current ratio remained constant as a balance was kept between the current assets and current liabilities of the firm. The debt to assets ratio also remains constant due to the fact that the gain or loss on the assets which were revalued impacted mainly the income statement rather than the balance sheet.
