    This paper explores the liquidity (solvency) position of ten prominent high street retailers using both the traditional measures of Current Asset Ratio and Quick Asset Ratio and the a more innovative measure the Defensive Interval. The paper sets out to establish, using the available accounting data, how long such companies could survive if a zero cash in-flow situation were to arise. This is explored in the light of terrorist threats from a variety of quarters aimed at high street retailers.
