  16. 16. 17-16Horizontal Analysis ExampleCalculating Change in Dollar Amounts Dollar Current Year Base Year = – Change Figure Figure Since we are measuring the amount of the change between 1998 and 1999, the Rupees amounts for 1998 become the “base” year figures.
  17. 17. 17-17Horizontal Analysis Example Calculating Change as a PercentagePercentage Rupees Change Change = Base Year Figure × 100%

  19. 19. 17-19Horizontal Analysis Example ($11,500 ÷ $23,500) × 100% = 48.9%
  20. 20. 17-20Horizontal Analysis Example
  21. 21. 17-21Horizontal Analysis Example Let’s apply the same procedures to the liability and shareholders’ equity sections of the balance sheet.
  22. 22. 17-22 CLOVER CORPORATION Comparative Balance Sheets December 31, 1999 and 1998 Increase (Decrease) 1999 1998 Amount % Liabilities and Stockholders EquityCurrent liabilities: Accounts payable $ 67,000 $ 44,000 $ 23,000 52.3 Notes payable 3,000 6,000 (3,000) (50.0) Total current liabilities 70,000 50,000 20,000 40.0Long-term liabilities: Bonds payable, 8% 75,000 80,000 (5,000) (6.3) Total liabilities 145,000 130,000 15,000 11.5Stockholders equity: Preferred stock 20,000 20,000 - 0.0 Common stock 60,000 60,000 - 0.0 Additional paid-in capital 10,000 10,000 - 0.0 Total paid-in capital 90,000 90,000 - 0.0Retained earnings 80,000 69,700 10,300 14.8 Total stockholders equity 170,000 159,700 10,300 6.4Total liabilities and stockholders equity $ 315,000 $ 289,700 $ 25,300 8.7

  24. 24. 17-24 CLOVER CORPORATION Comparative Income Statements For the Years Ended December 31, 1999 and 1998 Increase (Decrease) 1999 1998 Amount %Net sales $ 520,000 $ 480,000 $ 40,000 8.3Cost of goods sold 360,000 315,000 45,000 14.3Gross margin 160,000 165,000 (5,000) (3.0)Operating expenses 128,600 126,000 2,600 2.1Net operating income 31,400 39,000 (7,600) (19.5)Interest expense 6,400 7,000 (600) (8.6)Net income before taxes 25,000 32,000 (7,000) (21.9)Less income taxes (30%) 7,500 9,600 (2,100) (21.9)Net income $ 17,500 $ 22,400 $ (4,900) (21.9)

  32. 32. 17-32Trend Percentages Example Wheeler, Inc. provides you with the following operating data and asks that you prepare a trend analysis. $1,991 - $1,820 = $171
  33. 33. 17-33Trend Percentages ExampleUsing 1995 as the base year, we develop the following percentage relationships. $1,991 - $1,820 = $171 $171 ÷ $1,820 = 9% rounded
