Financial statements contain a plethora of information, but companies and analysts are often overwhelmed with “data overload” in their day-to-day operations. This course focuses on key metrics and a means of conducting easy trend analysis and forecasting to hone in on those ratios that are most critical to a business.

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Calculate and analyze various forms of corporate valuation techniques
  • Calculate and analyze profitability ratios
  • Calculate and analyze effect ratios
  • Calculate and analyze causal ratios
  • Analyze a company’s product concept and markets and their effect on ratios
  • Conduct a financial ratio comparison across competitors/industries
  • Conduct an analysis of a bankruptcy prediction model
  • Forecast sustainable growth through External Funds Needed calculations

Topics Discussed:
The course will examine and walk-through key financial statement ratios and trends across multiple industries, with particular focus on less common analysis ratios and how to utilize them across various market segments. In addition, a strong focus on a company’s “product concept” will be included and how it ties to the financials.
