2 Analyzing Financial Statements Balance SheetThe financial condition of the company on a certain date (a snapshot on that date)Income StatementThe financial performance of the company over a period of time (the accounting period)Cash Flow StatementSources and Uses of Cash over the accounting periodFinancial RatiosCompares financial data to create insightful relationships about the company’s financial health and operating performance.
3 Types of Financial Ratios LiquidityMeasures a firms ability to meet it near-term obligations.Working capital or EfficiencyIndication of how well a firm is using it’s assets to generate profits.Capital Structure or SolvencyProvide indications on how a firms is financing it’s investment in assets.Profitability or OperatingUsed to measure if a company is generating sufficient returns on it’s investments.Investment or Market TestMeasures used by many investors to compare a company’s earnings and dividend payments to it’s stock price.
4 Liquidity RatiosLiquidity measures the financial strength of an organization and it’s ability to pay it’s debts.LiquidityThe measure of a company’s ability to meet current obligations when they are due.Current obligations are all current expensesSalaries Payable; Accounts Payable; and Rent PayableThe two common Liquidity Ratios:Current ratio;Quick, or Acid Test
5 Liquidity Ratios Current Ratio Quick Ratio Current Ratio = Current AssetsCurrent LiabilitiesCurrent Assets include cash; marketable securities; accounts receivable; inventory; and prepaid expenses.Quick RatioQuick Ratio = Quick AssetsUses only the most liquid assets; cash, marketable securities and accounts receivable.
6 Questions???? How can a company manipulate it’s Liquidity ratios? What would happen if a company changed from FIFO to LIFO to account for Inventory valuation?Where would clues be found to indicate the Liquidity ratio was manipulated?
7 Working Capital Ratios Measures how effectively a company utilizes it’s Working Capital to generate profitsInventoryInventory turnoverAccounts ReceivableAccounts Receivable TurnoverAverage Collection PeriodAccounts PayableAccounts payable payment periodAssetsFixed Asset TurnoverTotal Asset Turnover
8 Inventory Inventory Turnover Inventory Turnover = COGSAverage InventoryThis tells how many times the inventory turned-over during the accounting period. The more times the inventory is turned, or used, the more efficient the company.Inventory is expensive to purchase and hold.Faster turnover means less risk of obsolescence.On the other hand, the company must avoid stockouts and lost business.
9 Accounts Receivable Accounts Receivable Turnover Accounts Receivable Turnover = Annual Credit SalesAverage Accounts ReceivablesIndicator of how well credit sales are collected. The more times Accounts Receivable is turned over, the more efficient the company and more working capital is available.Average Collection PeriodAverage Collection Period = Average Accounts Receivables(Annual Credit Sales ¸ 365)Calculates the average number of days it takes to collect payments due.Can indicate a problem if higher than the credit terms that are offered.A low number may indicate a company is only selling to customers who pay quickly. There may be untapped opportunities for new customers.
10 Accounts Payable Accounts Payable Payment Period Accounts Payable Payment Period = Average Accounts Payable(Annual Credit Purchase¸365)The amount of credit purchases is not usually available in financial statements; use Cost-of-Goods-Sold or other figure as a replacement.Identifies the average number of days from receipt of goods or services until they are paid.The longer the Period the more working capital is held and available to the company.This is non-interest borrowing except for the loss of Prompt Payment Discounts..
11 Assets Fixed Asset Turnover Total Asset Turnover Fixed Asset Turnover = Sales RevenueAverage Fixed AssetsTotal Asset TurnoverTotal Asset Turnover = Sales RevenueAverage Total AssetsThese ratios indicate how effectively a company is utilizing it’s assets, both current assets and non-current assets to generate Revenues.
12 Questions ???If the Accounts Receivable Collection period changed from 36 days to 48 days what would this indicated?What is the impact if the Inventory Turnover rate goes from 7.3 times to 6.2?
13 Capital Structure Ratios Provide indications on how a firms is financing it’s investments in assets.Total DebtTotal Debt to Owners’ EquityTotal Debt to Total AssetsLong-term DebtLong-term Debt to Total CapitalizationInterest ExpenseTimes Interest EarnedDebt Financing: requires repayment of the principle and interest.Equity Financing: No obligation to repay and no interest.
14 Total Debt Total Debt to Owners’ Equity Total Debt to Total Assets Total Debt = Current liabilities + non-current liabilitiesMeasures the relationship between borrowed funds and equity financingA company with a higher percentage than similar companies may use too much borrowing compared to owner financing.Total Debt to Total AssetsTotal Debt to Total Assets = Total DebtTotal AssetsMeasures the extent to which total asset are financed by borrowed funds (as opposed to owners equity)A company with a higher percentage than similar companies may have problems borrowing more money.
15 Long-term Debt Long-term Debt to Total Capitalization Long-term Debt to Total Capitalization = Non-current liabilitiesTotal CapitalizationTotal Capitalization = Long-term Debt + Owners’ EquityIt measures the percentage of Long-term debt to all permanently invested capital from all sources.Some analyst include deferred taxes in total capitalization since it may essentially be a permanent investment in the company.The ratio will vary by business and industry.A small corporation may have a high ratio due to a high level of borrowed funds and a low amount of equity financing.A larger, publicly traded corporation will have a lower ratio due to a high level of equity financing.
16 Interest Expense Times Interest Earned Times Interest Earned Ratio = Earnings Before Interest and Taxes (EBIT)Interest ExpenseEBIT is found on the Income Statement as the net Operating Profit before subtracting interest expense and taxes.Measures the ratio of the Operating Profit available to service debt.The higher the number the greater the safety margin and the lower the risk a company can pay it’s debts.
17 Questions ???A high Total Debt to Owners Equity ratio could have what implications?How could this be corrected?
18 Profitability RatiosUsed to measure if a company is generating sufficient returns on it’s investments.SalesGross Profit MarginOperating Profit MarginNet Profit MarginEquityReturn on Equity (ROE)AssetsReturn on Assets (ROA)
19 Sales Gross Profit Margin Gross Profit Margin = Gross Profit Net Sales RevenueGross Profit = Nets Sales - COGSNet Sales Revenue = Sales Revenues - returns.Represents the markup on Cost of Goods SoldRepresents the amount of net sales that will cover operating expenses, interest and taxes.A common measure used by engineering and sales managers. New products or services must almost always meet a minimum Gross Profit Margin before it is offered.
20 Sales Operating Profit Margin Net Profit Margin Operating Profit Margin = Net operating incomeNet Sales RevenueUsed as a measure of operating efficiency in relation to sales revenues.Net Profit MarginNet Profit Margin = Net IncomeMeasures the relationship of net profit to sales revenues.Will show how many cents on each sales revenue dollar becomes profit.
21 Equity and Assets Return on Equity (ROE) Return on Assets (ROA) Return on Equity = Net IncomeAverage Owners’ EquityMeasures the percentage of owners’ equity that becomes profit.Measures a company’s return on owner financing.Return on Assets (ROA)Return on Equity = ______EBIT________Average Total AssetsMeasure a company’s return on it’s investment in total assets.Use EBIT to account for Interest (a function of Capital Investment)
22 Questions ???A high Gross Profit Margin always means a high Net Profit Margin?What types of Industries would require a high Gross Profit Margin?Why do some analyst look primarily at a company’s Operating Profit Margin rather than the Net Profit Margin?

28 Assessment What are the five (5) categories of financial ratios? Generally, what does each group tell you about a company?What do the Investment ratios tell you about the performance of a company?What are the two benchmarks used for comparision?
