The balance sheet has two sides: on the left side are the assets and on the right side the liabilities and shareholders equity. This reflects what the firm owns and how it is financed. Assets = Liabilities + Shareholders Equity* *Remember: the shareholders equity is defined to be the difference between the assets and the liabilities of the firm (i.e. what the shareholders would have left after the firm discharged its obligations). 3 Accounting Statements and Cash Flow 2.1 The Balance Sheet Contd Assets: listed in order by the length of time it normally takes to convert them to cash (liquidity). Examples of current assets: include cash itself, marketable securities and receivables (bills to be paid by the firms customers), and inventories of raw materials, work in process, and finished goods. Examples of long term assets: usually illiquid, assets such as office buildings. The balance sheet does not include all of the companys assets. Some of the most valuable ones are intangible (i.e. patents, reputation, skilled management, well-trained work force, etc.) 4 9/15/2011 2 Accounting Statements and Cash Flow 2.1 The Balance Sheet Contd Liabilities and Equities: The right-hand portion of the balance sheet shows where the money to buy the assets comes from.
