This presentation will take place in your normal seminar time during week commencing 16th November 2015. (week 10). Using ratios, your presentation should highlight the respective financial strengths and weaknesses of your chosen companies. b) Produce a written report on the performance and financial position of your company and the competitor. c) Your written report should highlight, compare and discuss the financial strengths and weaknesses of the two companies’. Using ratio analysis, you should consider year on year comparisons over two years for your chosen company and then provide inter- company comparisons for the second year only, with the competitor from the same business sector. It is not mandatory that you compare 2013 with 2014. If you prefer, you could compare 2014 and 2015 accounts if they have been published. d) Your presentation & report should include analysis of : · Profitability · Efficiency · Liquidity · Gearing and · Investor Ratios. At the end of the report you should include an appendix showing all the ratios that you have calculated (year on year and intercompany comparisons) and the basis of their calculation, clearly stating any assumptions that you have made.
