Profit or loss for the year: The main idea behind any business is to make profits. This is the most appropriate information and the idea behind an income statement. This shows in general how much a business made after deducting the expenses that were incurred in running the business. Venus made a profit of $3,029 834, and this is the ultimate measure of a business performance. Earning per shares: For any business to start operating, it needs funds. The funds are provided by investors who become the shareholders. For investing in the business, they expect returns to be paid to them on a regular basis for their investment to be worth the risk of investing and also act as a source of income to them. This shows how relevant the earning per share is as it shows compensation to investors. Venus pays $3.76 per share which is a good return on investment from the investor’s perspective. This is likely to encourage more and more people to invest in the company which will push the share prices up. Question 3 An observation that I have observed is the high amount that has been allocated to research and development. In total, Venus has allocated $ 1.8 million. This shows how much the technological world is and our much new inventions matter.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
