Current Asset is important to company's creditors and private equity firms as they will often be interested in how much that company has in current assets since these assets can be easily liquidated in case the company goes bankrupt. However, it is usually not enough to know if a company is in good shape just based on current asset alone; the amount of current liabilities should always be considered.
