Date: 02/07/2011 (a)  Compute the financial ratios listed in Exhibit 3-2 for Lakeside for the years  ended December 31, 2007 and December 31, 2008.  Comment on any large  fluctuations, unusual fluctuations, or lack of expected fluctuations.  Also, give  an   overall   conclusion as to the significance of the change in Lakeside’s  liquidity, solvency, and profitability positions from 2004 to 2005.   Use the  following format. [Use Case3.xls for a spreadsheet to compute the ratios].

Average Days to  Collect Receivables 22.07 26.35 Since the increase in the average days  to collect the receivable it might be a  concern for the company. This shows  that the company should be more  aggressive in collecting the money.
