MAYES 2 & 4 Fin. Stmt. & Ratio Analysis

- Ratio analysis
- Du Pont system
- Effects of improving ratios
- Limitations of ratio analysis
- Qualitative factors

Common Size Financial Statements

Displays info as %, not $;

Provides 2 key benefits:

1. Allows for easy comparison between firms of different sizes.

2. Aids in spotting important trends which otherwise might not be obvious when looking at $ amounts.

Common Size Financial Statements

Common size Income Statement: all values a function of Sales $

Common size Balance Sheet: all values a function of Total Assets.

Analysis of Common Size Balance Sheets

- Elvis has ? proportion of inventory and current assets than Industry.
- Elvis now has ? Equity, which means (MORE? / LESS?) debt than Industry.
- Elvis has ? short-term debt than industry, but ? long-term debt than industry.

Analysis of Common Size Income Statements

- Elvis has ? COGS ( %) than industry’s ( %), but ? other expenses. Results?

Percentage Change Analysis:

Looks at Change rates from period to period between financial categories.

Indicator of +/- growth trends.

Analysis of Percent Change Income Statement

- i.e., Sales growth v. NI ?
- i.e., If NI grows faster than sales, then becoming more profitable.
- So becoming (more/less) profitable?

Analysis of Percent Change Balance Sheets

- i.e., Total assets growth v. sales. If assets grow at faster rate than sales, have asset utilization problem.

Why are ratios useful?

- Standardize numbers; facilitate comparisons
- Used to highlight weaknesses and strengths

What are the five major categories of ratios, and what questions do they answer?

- Liquidity: Can we make required payments as they fall due?
- Asset management: Do we have the right amount of assets for the level of sales?

(More…)

- Debt management: questions do they answer?Do we have the right mix of debt and equity? (Leverage)
- Profitability:Do sales prices exceed unit costs, and are sales high enough as reflected in PM, ROE, andROA?
- Market value:Do investors like what they see as reflected in P/E and M/B ratios?

Things to ask? Better? Worse? questions do they answer?

Effects of Debt on ROA and ROE averages?

- ROA is lowered by debt--interest expense lowers net income, which also lowers ROA.
- However, the use of debt lowers equity, and if equity is lowered more than net income, ROE would increase.

- PM= f(profitability)
- TA T/O = f(asset utilization)
- EM = f(debt & equity %s)
- Shows how these factors combine to
determine the ROE.

Economic Profit averages?= NOPAT – A/Tax Cost of Op. Capital

Economic Profit Measures of PerformanceWhere:

NOPAT = EBIT (1-tax rate)

A/Tax Cost of Op. Capital =

WACC * (Net Op. Working Cap + Net Fixed Assets)

** NOWC = (Non-interest bearing C/A – Non-interest bearing C/L)

Financial Distress & Z-score averages?

- Technique to determine likelihood of financial distress.
- Altman shows model 80-90% accurate w/ Z-score cut-off of 2.675; that is Z-score < 2.675 = distress.
- Actually determined 3 levels
- Z<1.81 Bankruptcy predicted w/in 1 yr.
- 1.81<Z<2.675 Financial Distress, poss. Bankruptcy
- Z>2.675 No fin. Distress predicted

Financial Distress & Z-score averages?Z = 1.2X1 + 1.4X2 + 3.3X3 + 0.6X4 + X5

- Where the variables are the following financial ratios:
- X1 = Net Working Capital / Total Assets
- X2 = Retained earnings / Total Assets
- X3 = EBIT / Total Assets
- X4 = Market Value of all equity / book value of Tot. Liabs
- X5 = Sales / Total Assets
- *For publicly traded companies

Market Price = averages?From the stock exchanges

EPS =

P/E =

C.S.Shares out.

Price per share

EPS

Calculate and appraise the

P/E, P/CF, and M/B ratios.

2005E 2004 2003 Ind. averages?

P/E

P/CF

M/B

- P/E: How much investors will pay for $1 of earnings. High is good.
- M/B: How much paid for $1 of book value. Higher is good.
- P/E and M/B are high if ROE is high, risk is low.

What are some potential problems and limitations of financial ratio analysis?

- Comparison with industry averages is difficult if the firm operates many different divisions.
- “Average” performance is not necessarily good.
- Seasonal factors can distort ratios.

(More…)

- Window dressing financial ratio analysis? techniques can make statements and ratios look better.
- Different accounting and operating practices can distort comparisons.
- Sometimes it is difficult to tell if a ratio value is “good” or “bad.”
- Often, different ratios give different signals, so it is difficult to tell, on balance, whether a company is in a strong or weak financial condition.

What are some qualitative factors analysts should consider when evaluating a company’s likely future financial performance?

- Are the company’s revenues tied to a single customer?
- To what extent are the company’s revenues tied to a single product?
- To what extent does the company rely on a single supplier?

(More…)

- What percentage of the company’s business is generated when evaluating a company’s likely future financial performance?overseas?
- What is the competitive situation?
- What does the future have in store?
- What is the company’s legal and regulatory environment?
