Financial Statement Analysis

Chapter 17

- Describe basic financial statement analytical methods.
- Use financial statement analysis to assess the solvency of a business.
- Use financial statement analysis to assess the profitability of a business.
- Describe the contents of corporate annual reports.

1

Describe basic financial statement analytical methods.

- Users analyze a company’s financial statements using a variety of analytical methods. Three such methods are as follows:
- Horizontal analysis
- Vertical analysis
- Common-sized statements

- The percentage analysis of increases and decreases in related items in comparative financial statements is called horizontal analysis.

Horizontal Analysis:

Difference$17,000

Base year (2013)$533,000

= 3.2%

Horizontal Analysis:

Difference$25,800

Base year (2013)$64,700

= 39.9%

Horizontal Analysis:

Difference$296,500

Base year (2013)$1,234,000

= 24.0%

Horizontal Analysis:

Difference$37,500

Base year (2013)$ 100,000

= 37.5%

- A percentage analysis used to show the relationship of each component to the total within a single financial statement is called vertical analysis.

- In a vertical analysis of the balance sheet, each asset item is stated as a percent of the total assets.
- Each liability and stockholders’ equity item is stated as a percent of the total liabilities and stockholders’ equity.

Vertical Analysis:

Current Assets$550,000

Total Assets$ 1,139,500

= 48.3%

- In a vertical analysis of the incomestatement, each item is stated as a percent of net sales.

Vertical Analysis:

Selling expenses $191,000

Net sales $1,498,000

= 12.8%

- In a common-sized statement, all items are expressed as percentages with no dollar amounts shown.
- Common-sized statements are useful for comparing the current period with prior periods, individual businesses with one another, or one business with industry averages.

Use financial statement analysis to assess the solvency of a business.

- All users of financial statements are interested in the ability of a company to do the following:
- Meet its financial obligations (debts), calledsolvency.
- Earn income, called profitability.

- Solvency analysis focuses on the ability of a business to pay its current and noncurrent liabilities.
- Solvency and profitability are interrelated. A company that cannot pay its debts will have difficulty obtaining credit, which can decrease its profitability.

- A company’s ability to pay its current liabilities is called current position analysis. It is of special interest to short-term creditors.

- The excess of current assets over current liabilities is called working capital. Working capital is often used to evaluate a company’s ability to pay current liabilities.
- Working capital is computed as follows:

Working Capital = Current Assets – Current Liabilities

Current Assets

Current Liabilities

Current Ratio =

- The current ratio, sometimes called the working capital ratio,also measures a company’s ability to pay its current liabilities.
- The current ratio is computed as follows:
