CHAPTER 2 Financial Statements and Analysis INSTRUCTOR’S RESOURCES Overview This chapter examines the key components to the stockholders' report: the income statement, balance sheet, statement of retained earnings, and the statement of cash flows. On the income statement and balance sheet, the major accounts/balances are reviewed for the student. The rules for consolidating a company's foreign and domestic financial statements (FASB No. 52) are described. Following the financial statement coverage the chapter covers the evaluation of financial statements using the technique of ratio analysis. Ratio analysis is used by prospective shareholders, creditors, and the firm's own management to measure the firm's operating and financial health. Three types of comparative analysis are defined: cross-sectional analysis, time-series analysis, and combined analysis. The ratios are divided into five basic categories: liquidity, activity, debt, profitability, and market. Each ratio is defined and calculated using the financial statements of the Bartlett Company. A brief explanation of the implications of deviation from industry standard ratios is offered, with a complete (cross-sectional and time-series) ratio analysis of Bartlett Company ending the chapter. The DuPont system of analysis is also integrated into the example. PMF Tutor : Financial Ratios This section of the Gitman Tutor generates problems to give the student practice calculating liquidity, activity, debt, profitability, and market ratios.
