It offers to identify its lowest value, which would characterise the period during which an enterprise could suspend repayment of current liabilities without the risk of deteriorating the financial state down to the crisis level. It calculates and analyses factual values of the indicator at a number of mining and smelting enterprises of Ukraine for the period 2002 – 2011. It states that it is more expedient to use different values for different groups of enterprises as boundary values. It also offers to set the upper limit value of the period of outstanding current liabilities at the level of 1 year. It states that when this value is exceeded, the financial state of an enterprise is characterised as a critical situation.

Analysis of effectiveness of the state industrial policy in ferrous metallurgy of Ukraine for the period 1996 – 2010 (p. 146 - 151)

The article contains analysis of results of realisation of legislative and regulatory acts, which determined development of the state industrial policy in ferrous metallurgy of Ukraine from 1996 till 2010. Analysis was conducted with the use of national statistics and international organisations: World Steel Association and International Steel Statistical Bureau. Analysis showed discrepancy of obtained results with the goals, which were set by the state within the framework of the branch industrial policy. This concerns development of the industrial and technological base, trade structure of production and export and also internal consumption of steel. Despite a number of benefits provided by the state, the technological level of the branch was low. Primary steel and semi-finished products dominate in the trade structure of production. Internal consumption of steel is limited and is lower than export indicators. The situation in other countries is quite opposite, due to which the article underlines a necessity to use their experience of branch industrial policy.

Regularities of Formation of Own and Borrowed Capital of an Industrial Aviation Enterprise under Conditions of Financial Independence (p. 160 - 164)

The main problem that arises when determining effectiveness of capital management is a necessity to account a big number of factors, which can influence an enterprise and determine its financial independence. Today, the following problems acquire special importance when managing formation of a capital of an industrial aviation enterprise: identification of the general requirement in capital, search for sources of its formation and managing the structure. Recommendations with respect to managing the structure of own and borrowed capital, unlike in previously considered in scientific and special literature, are not limited with the study of methods of capitalisation of profit. They are connected with identification of possibilities of use of additional capital as an element of own and acceptance credit, bonded debt – as an element of the borrowed capital. At the same time, the funds that are attracted as additional capital and acceptance credit are not considered as components of the financial flow. Thus, methods of justification of growth of the value of the financial flow by means of alternative sources of growth of the capital and methods of assessment of influence of the capital structure upon the size of the financial flow act as elements of the mechanism of management of movement of financial flows of enterprises. The mechanism of formation of own and borrowed capital and methods of managing its structure objectively create conditions of financial independence of an industrial aviation enterprise in the form of automatic protection from external factors and by way of formation of sources of financial sufficiency of resources.

Selection and identification of a by-product coke plant (BPCP) management tool (p. 165 - 169)

The degree of achievement of its goal by a company depends on many factors, including on its management tool. Economic science offers a big selection of such tools, but, as the analysis has shown, not all of them could be applied at a BPCP. The goal of the article is to identify a BPCP management tool, which would take into account its technological and organisational specific features. Due to specific industry (complexity of a production complex and continuous nature of production) and organisational factors (ascription of BPCP to vertically integrated structures (holding) of a mixed type and technocratic type of management), the tools, the object of management of which are relations with clients and strategic changes at a BPCP, cannot be used. In order to achieve BPCP goals – minimisation of costs and maximisation of money funds – it is necessary to use tools, the object of which is operation activity of a company, taking into account conditions of their use. Such tools could include: controlling, management by goals, key indicators of effectiveness and budgeting. Under conditions when a holding company has a limited nature of influence upon formation of its income and cash flows, but at the same time has a possibility of independent operative management of financial activity, only efficient management of costs and finances can guarantee survival of the company. Budgeting meets these requirements. It could be used in a combination with controlling, which is an information provision of managerial decision making and management by goals, and key indicators of effectiveness, which are rules (recommendations) of identification of the system of indicators of activity of subdivisions.

In order to detect impact of the structure of corporate ownership on corporate management the article uses general scientific and special methods of study: method of critical analysis and generalisation of theoretical studies, comparison method and statistical method. Analysis of engineering enterprises confirmed availability of impact of the structure of corporate ownership on corporate management. The article also shows that the engineering industry of Ukraine is characterised with the concentrated ownership structure, which has the following features: restriction of rights of minority shareholders with respect to management and control in a joint stock company; availability of corporate conflicts between majority and minority shareholders; availability of intense control of owners over management, which influences efficiency of making managerial decisions; hired managers and enterprise employees have no possibility to acquire stock of a joint stock company including in the form of bonuses and incentives; the controlling owner is interested in efficient activity of the enterprise and tries to create necessary conditions for this. The conducted studies give a possibility to establish that a share of stock that belongs to a hired executive body is smaller in those joint stock companies in which concentration of ownership is higher. The article also shows that the higher ownership concentration the higher is the probability that the owner would be a part of controlling bodies.

A critical evaluation of the prospects for increasing the resource base of the power generation enterprises in terms of the transition to a stock model of the electric energy market has made it clear that there is no direct link between the way in which the market is organized and expansion of the generating capacities. A high level of concentration of the electric energy market is likely to stipulate establishing monopolistic prices and underutilization of production capacity with purpose to maintain them. In view of the potential sources of financing for modernization of electroenergetics, it was suggested that three financial instruments for attracting capital to the industry should be put into practice: the transformed «green» tariff, «energy» bonds, special-purpose accounts for the means of the depreciation fund of effective enterprises.

Assessing the Impact of Ukraine’s International Obligations on the Tariff Policy in the Energy Sector (p. 148 - 159)

The article presents an analysis of the existing international legal documents in the energy sphere, which define the features of the national energy policy of Ukraine. Among the main such documents are considered the Energy Charter Treaty, the Treaty on the establishment of the Energy Community, the Association Agreement between the Ukraine and the European Union. These international treaties have primacy over the national legislation, so their provisions should be of top priority in the course of formation of the national energy policy. At the same time, international commitments to implement the national tariff policy in the energy sector are not explicitly written in international documents. This fact allowed Ukraine to implement economically inefficient, non-competitive, and anti-social tariff policy in the energy sector. A systematization together with analyzing of the international obligations of Ukraine has allowed to determine that the following principles should be laid down in the basis of the national tariff policy in the energy sphere: non-discrimination of market participants on national affiliation; full reflection of efficient, including environmental, costs in conditions of sustainable development; transparency of regulatory policy; prohibition of distortion, limitation, and prevention of competition, as well as abusing of dominant position.

Using the Secondary Resources as a Means of Ensuring the Ecological-Economic Efficiency of Coal Enterprises (p. 165 - 170)

The article is aimed at studying and developing measures of ecological-economic efficiency of coal industry enterprises in using secondary resources. It was stated that the majority of the State-owned coal mining enterprises are unprofitable. The reasons for this are high cost of production, reduction of coal production, outdated mine fund, prices for sold coal, which are much lower than the self-cost. It is noted that despite the decrease in coal production, the economic activity of coal mining enterprises has a significant negative impact on the environment. The structure of coal waste storage is analyzed and its impact on ecology and human health is identified. It is concluded that the main reserve for improving the efficiency of coal enterprises and reducing the negative impact on the environment is the use of coal waste as a secondary raw material. The foreign experience on the use of secondary coal raw materials for production of building materials (ecological bricks, highways), aluminium, etc. is analyzed. It is proposed to introduce these measures in Ukrainian coal enterprises with the purpose of Improvement of ecological-economic efficiency of the coal enterprises’ activities.

The article is aimed at researching the essence and components of the mechanism for investment provision of innovation development, the implementation of which would ensure a long-term dynamic growth of both the industrial sector and the economy of the country as a whole. The essence and components of the mechanism for investment provision of innovative development of the country’s industrial sector are analyzed. The need to introduce an investment mechanism for the innovative provision of the development of industry is defined, including: objects, entities, purpose, principles, functions, legal and regulatory issues, institutional, informational, infrastructure provision of its functioning. It is defined that the mechanism for investment provision of the innovation activity in industry is implemented both through market mechanisms for investment provision, and through the internal corporate mechanisms of individual enterprises, but the State has a dominant role in creating economic, legal mechanisms to attract and stimulate investment directed towards an innovative development. Thus, the State creates a legal field, forms relevant institutions, provides economic incentives and mechanisms and also activates, stimulates and regulates the processes of investment provision of the innovative industrial development. The authors propose formation and comprehensive functioning of the mechanism along with an instrumentarium for the State regulation of investment and innovation provision of industrial development, in order to ensure both coordination and action of the State regulation, as well as the formation and activation of both the market and the internal corporate mechanisms for the investment provision of the industrial development.
