Project #96292 - Research Project, and Financial Analysis

 

The overall purpose of this research project is to perform a financial analysis of the company you have chosen and arrive at an overall assessment of the financial viability of the company. To accomplish this it is necessary to calculate and review various financial ratios and create a forecast of the next two years based on these ratios, trends in income statement and balance sheet items and finally, calculate a value past on the forecast. A general outline for this review is shown below.

 

 

 

A. Introduction

 

            1. Description of the company and industry. Focus on key aspects of the company and industry. Does not need to be more than 4 to 5 paragraphs.

 

 

 

B. Analysis

 

            Historical analysis of various ratios. It is up to you to select the ratios you believe are important and relevant to your analysis. Ratios should be at least three year of history and include not only ratios but also growth rates in key parameters for the company. An obvious example would be to use historical sales growth to forecast sales growth for the next two years.

 

            Other parts of the income statement should follow off the sales and sales growth. In turn various balance sheet items should align with forecasted sales growth. Finally, you should use the balance sheet and income statement and balance sheet to create a proforma statement of cash flow.

 

            All the ratios should be shown on an excel spreadsheet, including growth rates and any forecasts. As we have discussed in class, you should also use industry comparisons to help determine appropriate ratios. It is not necessary to show industry ratios, but it may be useful to do so. You can obtain many of these through Netadvantage S&P.

 

 

 

C. Forecast

 

            Hopefully, you have started on most of the items discussed in the Analysis section. As previously stated, the forecast should be based on certain key variables such as sales growth, asset growth, etc. You will alos need to review ceratin management presentation and/or financial reports to develop a sense of where a particular company desires to go in the future. Once a forecast for the next two years is developed, you can create a valuation model for the company. We will didcuss this latter function further in classs.
