This is a general indication of the extent to which claims of short-term creditors are covered by assets that are expected to be converted into cash in a period that roughly corresponds to the due dates of the current liabilities. The higher the ratio, the greater the cushion between current obligations and the firm's ability to pay them. A general guideline suggests that a current ratio less than 2 might indicate a potential cash shortage.
