Keywords:finance, financial stability, profitability, entrepreneurship, industry
The article examines trends in the financial stability of Ukrainian enterprises, particularly in the industrial sector, in the current operating environment. Effective management of financial stability is vital for the success of enterprises, entrepreneurship in general, and the economy of the country. The industrial sector comprises approximately one-third of enterprise assets, and the rate of growth of non-current assets and equity of industrial enterprises is higher than the rate for entrepreneurship as a whole. However, the share of capital held by industrial enterprises is lower, which affects their financial stability. The amount of non-current assets exceeds equity, resulting in negative own working capital and other absolute indicators of financial stability. The evaluation of financial stability indicators indicates a rather low level. The full-scale war in Ukraine has resulted in negative financial results, particularly in the industrial sector. Profit is a critical factor for financial stability, equity growth, and entrepreneurship development. In the current circumstances, it is necessary to find new ways to increase profitability, reduce costs without compromising product quality, implement energy-saving measures, improve energy efficiency, optimize production capacity, increase resource use efficiency, and develop a successful marketing strategy. To improve financial stability, the article proposes issuing new shares, additional contributions from founders, revaluation of fixed assets, and seeking opportunities to receive irrevocable financial assistance from organizations, individuals, and states.
