3. CHAPTER 15FINANCIAL STATEMENT ANALYSIS After studying this chapter, you should be able to: 5 Identify and compute ratios and describe their purpose and use in analyzing a firm’s liquidity, profitability, and solvency. 6Understand the concept of earning power and indicate how material items not typical of regular operations are presented. 7 Recognize the limitations of financial statement analysis.

5. BASICS OF FINANCIAL STATEMENT ANALYSIS • Analyzing financial statements involves Three characteristics of a company: 1its liquidity, 2 its profitability, and 3its solvency. • Every item reported in a financial statement has significance. • In order to obtain information as to whether the amount 1represents an increase over prior years or 2is adequate in relation to the company’s need for cash, the amount of cash must be compared with other financial statement data. • Comparisons can be made on several difference bases – threeare illustrated in this chapter: 1intracompany basis, 2industry averages, and 3intercompany basis.

6. TOOLS OF FINANCIAL STATEMENT ANALYSIS Three commonly used tools are utilized to evaluate the significance of financial statement data. 1Horizontal analysis (trend analysis) is a technique for evaluating a series of financial statement data over a period of time. 2Vertical analysis is a technique for evaluating financial statement data that expresses each item in a financial statement in terms of a percent of a base amount. 3Ratio analysis expresses the relationship among selected items of financial statement data.

7. ILLUSTRATION 15-1, 15-2 SEARS ROEBUCK’S NET SALES SEARS, ROEBUCK AND CO. The purpose of horizontal analysis is to determine the increase or decrease that has taken place, expressed as either an amount or a percentage. The recent net sales figures of Sears, Roebuck and Co. are shown above. Given that 1996 is the base year, we can measure all percentage increases or decreases from this base period amount as shown below. (Net Sales Stated in Millions) 2000 1999 1998 1997 1996 \$ 40,937 \$ 39,484 \$ 39,953 \$ 39,837 \$ 36,662 Change since base period =

8. ILLUSTRATION 15-4 HORIZONTAL ANALYSIS OF SEARS, ROEBUCK’S NET SALES We can determine that net sales for Sears, Roebuck increased approximately 8.7% [(\$39,837 - \$36,662) ÷ \$36,662] from 1996 to 1997. We can also determine that net sales increased over 11.7% [(\$40,937 - \$36,662) ÷ \$36,662] from 1996 to 2000. The percentage of the base period for each of the 5 years, assuming 1996 as the base period, is shown below. Sears, Roebuck and Co. Net Sales (in Millions) Base Period 1996 2000 1999 1998 1997 1996 \$40,937 \$ 39,484 \$ 39,953 \$ 39,837 \$36,662 111.7% 107.7% 109% 108.7% 100%

39. EARNING POWER AND IRREGULAR ITEMS • For users of financial statements to determine earning power or regular income, the irregular items are separately identified on the income statement. • Three types of irregular items are reported: 1Discontinued operations, 2Extraordinary items, and 3Changes in accounting principle.

40. DISCONTINUED OPERATIONS • Discontinued operations constitutes the disposal of a significant segment of a business. • The income (loss) from discontinued operations consists of 1 the income (loss) from operations and 2the gain (loss) on disposal of the segment.

41. ILLUSTRATION 15-31 STATEMENT PRESENTATION OF DISCONTINUED OPERATIONS Acro Energy Inc. has revenues of \$2.5 million and expenses of \$1.7 million from continuing operations in 2002. The company therefore has income before income taxes of \$800,000. The company discontinued and sold its unprofitable chemical division during 2002. The 2002 loss from chemical operations was \$140,000 (net of \$60,000 in income taxes), and the loss on disposal of the chemical division (net of \$30,000 in income taxes), was \$70,000. Given a 30% income tax rate, the partial income statement presentation is shown below.

42. EXTRAORDINARY ITEMS • Extraordinary items are events and transactions that meet two conditions: they are 1unusual in nature and 2infrequent in occurrence. • Extraordinary items are reported net of taxes in a separate section of the income statement immediately below discontinued operations.

45. CHANGE IN ACCOUNTING PRINCIPLE • To make them comparable, financial statements are expected to be prepared on a basis consistent with that used in the preceding period. • A change in accounting principle occurs when the principle used in the current year is different from the one used in the preceding year. • A change is permitted when 1management can show that the new principle is preferable to the old principle and 2the effects of the change are clearly disclosed in the income statement.

46. CHANGE IN ACCOUNTING PRINCIPLE When a change in accounting principle has occurred, 1the new principle should be used in reporting the results of operations of the current year and 2the cumulative effect of the change on all prior year income statements should be disclosed net of applicable income taxes in a special section immediately preceding net income.

47. ILLUSTRATION 15-34 STATEMENT PRESENTATION OF CUMULATIVE EFFECT OF CHANGE IN ACCOUNTING PRINCIPLE At the beginning of 2002, Acro Energy Inc. changes from the straight-line method of depreciation to the declining-balance method for equipment purchased on January 1, 1999. Assuming a 30% income tax rate the net of income tax effect of the change is \$16,800 (\$24,000 X 70%). The partial income statement presentation is shown below.

48. LIMITATIONS OF FINANCIAL ANALYSIS You should be aware of some of the limitations of the three analytical tools illustrated in the chapter and of the financial statements on which they are based. 1Estimates: Financial statements contain numerous estimates; to the extent that these estimates are inaccurate, the financial ratios and percentages are inaccurate. 2Cost: Traditional financial statements are based on cost and are not adjusted for price-level changes. Comparisons of unadjusted financial data from different periods may be rendered invalid by significant inflation or deflation.

49. LIMITATIONS OF FINANCIAL ANALYSIS 3Alternative Accounting Methods: Variations among companies in the application of GAAP may hamper comparability. Although differences in accounting methods might be detectable from reading the notes to the financial statements, adjusting the financial data to compensate for the different methods is difficult, if not impossible, in some cases. 4Atypical Data: Fiscal year-end data may not be typical of the financial condition during the year. Firms often establish a fiscal year-end that coincides with the low point in operating activity or in inventory levels. Thus, certain account balances may not be representative of the account balances during the year. 5Diversification of Firms: Diversification in American industry also restricts the usefulness of financial analysis. Many firms today are too diversified to be classified by industry, while others appear to be comparable when they are not.
