  1. Structure of the Balance Sheet and Statement of Cash Flows Chapter 4 .

  2. Learning objectives • How balance sheet accounts are measured and classified. • How balance sheet information is used. • Balance sheet terminology and format outside the U.S. • How footnotes aid your understanding of the firm’s accounting policies, subsequent events, and related-party transactions. • How successive balance sheet and the income statement can be used to identify cash inflows and outflows. • How the cash flow statements can be used to explain changes in successive balance sheets. 4-2

  3. Learning objectivesConcluded • The distinction between operating, investing, and financing sources and uses of cash. • How changes in current asset and current liability accounts can be used to compute “cash flows from operations” from accrual earnings. • Key changes under the FASB/IASB proposed exposure draft on financial statement presentation. 4-3

  4. Elements of the balance sheet How the money is invested Where the money came from ASSETS LIABILITIES EQUITY = + • Probable future economic benefits • Obtained from past transactions or events • Probable future sacrifices of economic benefits • Arising from present obligations • To transfer assets or provide services in the future • As a result of past transactions or events • The residual interest in net assets. 4-4

  5. Balance sheet information Rates of return ROA and ROCE ASSETS Capital structure Debt vs. Equity Helps Liquidity Cash conversion LIABILITIES + EQUITY assess Solvency Ability to pay debt Flexibility Operating and financial Balance Sheet 4-5

  6. Balance sheet measurement conventions Historical cost ASSETS Current cost (fair value) Measurement LIABILITIES + EQUITY methods Net realizable value Discounted present value Balance Sheet 4-6

  7. Balance sheet classification:Overview ASSETS LIABILITIES EQUITY = + • Current assets • Property, plant and equipment • Investments • Other assets • Current liabilities • Long-term debt • Other liabilities • Preferred and common stock • Additional paid-in capital • Retained earnings 4-7

  8. Balance sheet presentation:International differences U.S. Format: U.K. Format: Fixed Assets Current Assets + + Current Assets Long-lived Assets - = Current Liabilities - Current Liabilities Non-current Liabilities + Non-current Liabilities = + Stockholders’ Equity Capital Employed 4-8

  9. Financial statement footnotes • Footnotes are an integral part of companies’ financial reports. • These “notes” help users better understand and interpret the numbers presented in the body of the financial statements. • Three important notes: • Summary of significant accounting policies. • Subsequent event disclosures. • Related party transactions 4-9

Statement of cash flows • Explains why a firm’s cash position changed between successive balance sheet dates. Here’s a balance sheet equation: = + + Stockholders’ equity Cash Non-cash assets Liabilities 4-10

  11. Cash flow statement format Cash inflows and outflows from transactions and events that affect operating income Operating Activities Cash inflows and outflows from loaning money to others, investing in securities, or in assets (e.g., equipment) used to produce goods and services. Investing Activities Cash inflows and outflows from borrowing money, selling stock, and paying dividends Financing Activities Δ Cash 4-11

  12. Deriving cash flows from operations:Indirect approach 4-12

  13. Deriving cash flow information:Overview Income statement Beginning Balance sheet Ending Balance sheet Cash flow statement You can always derive any one financial statement from information available in the other three statements. 4-13

  14. Global Vantage Point The proposed Exposure Draft issue by the FASB and the IASB recommends that the statement of financial position and statement of cash flows be broken down into the distinct sections, categories, and subcategories shown in Exhibit 4.15. 4-14

  15. Summary • The balance sheet shows the assets owned by a company at a given point in time, and how those assets are financed (debt vs. equity). • Be alert for differences in balance sheet measurement bases, account titles, and statement format. • Financial statement footnotes provide important information. • The cash flow statement shows the change in cash for a given period, broken down into operating, investing, and financing activities. 4-15

  16. Summary concluded • Changes in certain balance sheet accounts help explain why operating cash flows differ from accrual income. • Conversely, the cash flow statement helps to explain changes in balance sheet accounts • T-accounts are a useful analytical device for deriving cash flow and accrual income information from successive balance sheets 4-16
