Every enterprise needs finance to start and carry out its operation. Finance is the lifeblood of an organization. So, finance should be managed effectively. <br />Financial statements are prepared primarily for decision making. Financial Statement Analysis refers to the process of determining financial strength and weakness of the firm by properly establishing strategic relationship between the items of the balance sheet and profit and loss account. There are various methods and techniques used in analyzing financial statements, such as comparative statements, trend analysis, common size statements, schedule of changes in working capital, funds flow and cash flow analysis, cost volume profit analysis and ratio analysis and other operative data. The analysis of financial statement is used for decision making by various parties<br />3.2 Meaning and Concept of Financial Analysis:-<br /> <br />The term ‘financial analysis’ , also known as analysis and interpretation of financial statements’, refers to the process of determining financial strengths and weakness of the firm by establishing strategic relationship between the items of the balance sheet, profit and loss account and opposite data.”Analysing financial statements,” according to Metcalf and Titard, “is a process of evaluating the relationship between component parts of a financial statements to obtain a better understanding of a firm’s position and performance”. In the words of Myers, “Financial statement analysis is largely a study of relationship among the various financial factors in a business as disclosed by a single set-of statement, and a study of the trend of these factors as shown in a series of statements.” <br />The purpose of financial analysis is to diagnose the information contained in financial statements so as to judge the profitability and financial soundness of the firm. Just like a doctor examines his patient by recording his body temperature, blood pressure, etc. before making his conclusion regarding the illness and before giving his treatment, a financial analyst analysis the financial statements with various tools of analysis before commenting upon the financial health or weaknesses of an enterprise. The analysis and interpretation of financial statements is essential to bring out the mystery behind the figures in financial statements. Financial statements analysis is an attempt to determine the significance and meaning of the financial statement data so that forecast may be made of the future earnings, ability to pay interest and debt maturities (both current and long-term) and profitability of a sound dividend policy<br />The term ‘financial statement analysis’ includes both ‘analysis’, and ‘interpretation’. A distinction should, therefore, be made between the two terms. While the term ‘analysis’ is used to mean the simplification of financial data by methodical classification of the data given in the financial statements, ‘interpretation’ means, ‘explaining the meaning and significance of the data so simplified however, both analysis and interpretation are in terlinked and complimentary to each other aAnalysis is useless without interpretation and interpretation without analysis is fifficult or even impossible most of the authors have used the term analysis only to cover the meaning both analysis and interpredation as the objective of analysis is ti sutudy the relationship between various items of financial statements by interpretation. We have also used the terms Financial statement Analysis or simply Financial Analysis to cover the meaninng of both analys is and interpretation.<br />3.3 - Objective and Importance of Financial Statament Analysis:-<br />The primary objective of financial statements analysis is to understatd and diagnoe theimformation contained in financial statement with a view to judge the profitability financial soundness of the firm and to make forecast about future prospects of the firm. The purposed of analysis depencds upon the person interested in such analysis and his object. However the following purposed or objecti es of finandiaol statements analysis may be stated to bring out signifiance of such analysis.<br />To assess the earning capacity or profitability of the firm.<br />To assess the operational efficiency and managerial effectiveness.<br />To assess the short term as wesll as log term solvency of the firm.<br />To identify the reasons for change in profitability and financial position of the form.<br />To make inter firem comparisons.<br />To make forecasts about future prospects of the firm<br />To assess the progress of the firm over a perid of time.<br />To help in decision making and control.<br />To guide or determine the dividecnd action<br /> To proved important information for granting credit. <br />Types of Financial Analysis<br />On the basis of material used<br />On the basis of modus operandi,<br />On the bases of entities used,<br />On the basis of time horizon.<br />On the basis of Material Used. <br />According to material used, financial analysis can be two types.<br />(a)External Analysis<br />(b)Internal Analysis<br />External Analysis: This analysis is done by outsiders who do not have access to the detailed internal accounting records of the business firm. There outsiders include investors, potential investors, creditors, potential creditors, credit agencies, government agencies and general public. For financial analysis thus save only a limited purpose, however the recent changes in the government regulations requiring business firms to make available more detailed information to the public though audited published accounts have considerably improved the position of the external analysis.<br />Internal Analysis:- This analysis is done by persons who have access who have across to the detailed internal accounting records of the business firm is known as internal analysis such an analysis can therefore be performed by executives and employees of the employee of the organization as well as government agencies which have statutory powers vested in them financial analysis for managerial purposed is the internal type of analysis that can be effected de[ending upon the purpose to be achieved<br />On the basis of modus operandic<br />According to the method of operation followed in the analysis can be two types <br />Horizontal Analysis<br />Vertical Analysis <br />Horizontal Analysis:- If refers to the comparison of financial data of a company for several years. The figures of this type analysis are presented horizontally over a number of columns. The figures of the variously years are compared with standard or base year. A base year is a year chosen as beginning point. It is also called ‘Dynamic Analysis’. This analysis makes it possible to focus attention on items that have changed significantly during the period under review. Comparative statements and trend percentages are two tools employed in horizontal analysis.<br />Vertical Analysis:- It refers to the study of relationship of the various items in the financial statements of one accounting period. In this type of analysis the figures from financial statements of a year are compared with a base year selected from the same year’s statement. It is also called ‘Static Analysis’. Common size financial statements and financial ratios are the two tools employed in vertical analysis. Since vertical analysis considers data for one time period only, it is not vary conducive to a proper analysis financial statements. However, it may be used along with horizontal analysis to make it more effective and meaningful.<br />On the basis of entities involved:<br />According to the method of operation followed in the analysis can be two types<br />Inter –firm or Cross Sectional Analysis<br />Intra-firm or Time Series Analysis<br />Inter-Firm or Cross Sectional Analysis:- Cross sectional analysis involves comparison of financial data of a firm with other firms (competitors) or industry averages for the same time period <br />Intra-firm or Time Series Analysis:- Time series analysis involves the study of performance of the same firm over a period of time.<br />On the basis of time horizon.<br />According to the method of operation followed in the analysis can be two types <br />s<br />Short term Analysis<br />Long term Analysis.<br />Short term Analysis:- Short term analysis measures the liquidity position of a firm, i. e. short term paying capacity of a firm or the firm’s ability to meet the current obligations.<br />Long term Analysis:- Long term analysis involves the of the firm’s ability to meet the interest costs and repayment schedules of its long term obligations. The solvency, stability and profitability are measured under this type of analysis.<br />Procedure of Financial Statements Analysis<br />Broadly speaking there are three steps involved in the analysis of financial statements. These are<br />Selection<br />Classification<br />Interpretation<br />The first step involves selection of information (data) relevant to the purpose of analysis of financial statements. The second step involved is the methodical classification of the data and the third step includes drawing of inferences and conclusions.<br />The following procedure is adopted for the analysis and interpretation of financial statements.<br />The analyst should acquaint himself with principles and postulates of accounting. He should know the plans and policies of the management so that he may be able to find out whether these plans are properly executed or not.<br />The extent of analysis should be determined so that the sphere of work may be decided. If the aim is to find out the earning capacity of the enterprise then analysis of income statement will be undertaken. On the other hand, if the financial position is to be studied then balance sheet analysis will be necessary.<br />The financial data given in the statements should be re-organized and re-arranged. It will involve the grouping of similar data under same heads, breaking down of individual components of statements according to nature. The data is reduced to a standard form.<br />A relationship is established among financial statements with the help of tools and techniques of analysis such as ratios, trends, common size, finds flow etc.<br />The information is interpreted in a simple and understandable way. The significance and utility of financial data is explained for helping decision-taking.<br />The conclusions drawn from interpretation are presented to the management in the form of reports<br />Methods or Devices of Financial Analysis<br />A Number of methods or devices are used to study the relationship between different statements. The following methods of analysis are generally used:<br />Comparative statement<br />Trend analysis<br />Common size statements<br />Funds flow analysis <br />Cash flow analysis <br />Ratio analysis<br />Cost-volume-profit analysis<br />In this project the Comparative statement and Ratio Analysis is used to study the financial statements of Au-Financiers (India) Pvt. Ltd.<br />Comparative Statement:- The comparative financial statements are statements of the financial position at different periods of time. The elements of financial position are shown in a comparative form so as to give an idea of financial position at two or more periods. Any statement prepared in a comparative form will be covered in comparative statements. From practical point of view generally two financial statements.<br />Balance Sheet<br />Income Statement <br />Comparative balance sheet:- The comparative balance sheet analysis is the study of the trend of the same items, group of items and computed items, group of items and computed items in two or more balance sheets of the same business enterprise on different dates. The changes in periodic balance sheet items reflect the conduct of a business. The changes can be observed by comparison of th balance she at the beginning and at the end of a period and these changes can help in forming an opinion about the progress of an enterprise. The comparative balance sheet has two columns for the data of original balance sheet. A third column is used to show this increase in figures. The fourth column may be added for giving percentage of increases and decreases. <br />Guidelines for Interpretation of Comparative Balance Sheet<br />While interpreting comparative balance sheet the interpreter is expected to study the following aspects.<br />Current Financial Position and Liquidity Position<br />Long term Financial Position<br />Profitability of the Concern<br />For studying the Financial Position and short term Financial Position of a concern, one sees the working capital in both the years. The excess of current assets over current liabilities will give the figure of working capital. The increase in working capital means improvement in the current financial position of the business. An increase in current assets accompanied by the increase in current liabilities of the same amount will not show any improvement in short term financial position. One should study the increase or decrease in current assts and current liabilities and this will enable him to analyze the current financial position.<br />The second aspect which should be studies in current financial position is the liquidity position of the concern. If liquid assets like cash in hand, cash at bank, bills receivable, debtors, etc. Show an increase in the second year over the first year, this will improve the liquidity position of the concern, the increase in inventory can be on account of accumulation of stocks for want customers, decrease in demand or inadequate sales promotion efforts. An increase in inventory may increase working capital of the business but it will not be good for business.<br />The long term financial position of the concern can be analyzed by studying the changes in fixed assets, long term liabilities and capital. The proper financial policy of concern will be to finance fixed assets by the issue of either long term securities such as debentures, bonds, loans from financial institutions or issue of fresh share capital, an increase in fixed assets should be compared to the increase in long term loans and capital if the increase in fixed assets is more than the long term securities then parts of fixed assets have not only been financed from long term sources. A wise policy will be to fiancé fixed assets by raising long term funds.<br />The new aspects to be studied in a comparative balance sheet questions is the profitability of the concern. The study of increase or decrease in retained earning, various resources and surpluses, etc will enable the interpreter to see whether the profitability has improved or not. An increase in the balance of profit and loss account and he other resources created from profits will mean an increase in profitability to the concern. The decrease in such accounts may mean issue divided, issue dividend, issue of bonus share or deterioration in profitability of the concern.<br />After studying various assets and liabilities and opinion should be formed about the financial position of the concern. One cannot say if short term financial position is good the n long term financial position will also be good or vice versa. A concluding word about the overall financial position must be given at the end.<br />Comparative Income Statement:- The income statement gives the results of the operation of a business. The comparative income statement gives an idea of the progress of a business over a period of time. The changes in absolute data in money values and percentages can be determined it analyze the profitability of the business. .like comparative balance sheet income statement also has four columns. First two columns give figures of various items for two years. Third and fourth columns are used to show increase or decrease in figures in absolute amounts and percentages respectively.<br />Guidelines for Interpretation of Comparative Income Statement<br />The analysis and interpretation of income statement will involve are following steps. <br /> <br />The increase or decrease in sales should be compared with the increase ore decrease in costs of goods sold. An increase in sales will not always mean an increase in profit. The profitability will improve if increase in sales is more than increase in costs of goods sold. The amount of gross profit should be studied in the first step.<br />The second step of analysis should be the operational profits. The operating expenses such as office and administrative expenses, selling and distribution expenses should be deducted from gross profit to find out operating profits. An increase in operating profit will result from the increase in sales position and control of operating expenses. A decrease in operating profit may be due to an increase in operating expenses or decease in sales. The change in individual expenses should also be studied. Some expenses may increase due to the expansion of business activities while others may go u due to managerial inefficiency.<br />The increase or decrease in net profit will give an idea about the overall profitability of the concern. Non operating expenses such as interest paid, losses from sales of assets, writing off deferred expenses, payment of tax, etc. Decrease the figure of operational profit, we get a figure of net profit. Some non operating incomes may also be there which will increase net profit. An increase in net profit will gave us an idea about the progress of the concern. <br />An opinion should be formed about profitability of the concern and it should be given at the end. It should be mentioned whether the overall profitability of the concern is good or not.<br />Focus on Financial statement Analysis:<br />Financial statement analysis involves evaluating different aspects of a business enterprise, which are of great importance to different users such as management, investors, creditors, bankers, analyst, investment advisers, etc. generally, the following analyses are made while making Financial Statement Analysis.<br />Liquidity or short term solvency analysis.<br />Profitability analysis<br />Capital structure or gearing analysis<br />Market strength or investor analysis <br />Growth and stability analysis<br />Application of Financial Analysis<br />Following are the application of financial analysis:<br />Assessing Corporate Excellence<br />Judging credit worthiness<br />Forecasting bankruptcy<br />Valuing equity shares<br />Predicting bonds ratings<br />Estimating market risk<br />Limitations of Financial Statement Analysis<br />Financial analysis is a powerful mechanism of determining financial strengths and weakness of a firm. But, the analysis is based on the information available in the financial statements. Thus, the financial analysis suffers from serious inherent limitations of financial statements. The financial analysis has also be careful about the impact of price level changes, windows dressing of financial statements, changes in the accounting policies of a firm, accounting concepts and conventions, and personal judgment, etc. the readers are advised to relate the limitations of financial statements as given in the previous chapter and also the limitations of ratios as a tool of financial analysis as discussed in Ratio Analysis. Some of the important limitations of financial analysis are, however, summed up as below.<br />It is only a study of interim reports.<br />Financial analysis is based upon only monetary information and non-monetary factors are ignored.<br />It does not consider changes in price levels.<br />As the financial statements are prepared on the basis of a going concern, it does not give exact position. Thus accounting concepts and conventions cause a serious limitation to financial analysis.<br />Changes in accounting procedure by a firm may often make financial analysis misleading.<br />Analysis is only a means and not an end in it self. The analyst has to make interpretation and drawn his own conclusions. Different people may interpret the same analysis in different ways.<br />Overview of Ratio Analysis<br />Introduction:- Ratio analysis is one of the techniques used to analyze the financial statement. It is one of the most powerful tools of financial analysis. It is the process of establishing and interpreting various ratios (quantitative relationship between figures and group of figures). Through ratio analysis financial statement can analyze more clearly and decision made from such analysis.<br />According to Accountant’s Handbook by Wizon Kell and Bedford, a ratio’is an expression, of the quantitative relationship between the numbers’.<br />Nature of Ratio Analysis:- Ratio analysis is a technique of analysis and interpretation of financial statements. It is the process of establishing and interpreting various ratios for helping in making certain decision. However, ratio analysis is not an end in itself. It is only a means of better understanding of financial strength and weaknesses of affirm. Calculation of mere ratios does not serve any purpose, unless several appropriate ratio are analyzed and interpreted. There are a number of ratios which can be calculated from the information given in the financial statements, but the analyst select the appropriate data and calculate only a few appropriate ratios from the same keeping in mind the objective of analysis. The ratios may be used as a symptom like blood pressure, the pulse rate or the body temperature and their interpretation depends upon the caliber and competence of the analyst. The following are the four steps involved in the ratio analysis:<br />Selection of relevant data from the financial statements depending upon the objective of the analysis.<br />Calculation of appropriate ratios from the above data.<br />Comparison of the calculated ratios with the ratios of the same firm in the past, or the ratios developed from projected financial statements or the ratio of some other firms or the comparison with ratios of the industry to which the firm belongs.<br />Interpretation of the ratios.<br />Use and significance of Ratio Analysis<br />Helpful in decision making.<br />Helpful in financial forecasting and planning.<br />Helpful in communication.<br />Helpful in co-ordination.<br />Helpful in Control.<br />Helpful in efficiency appraisal<br />Helpful in evaluation of financial position.<br />Helpful to investors, financial institution, employee<br />Limitations of Ratio Analysis:-<br />The ratio analysis is one of the most powerful tools of financial management. Though ratios are simple to calculate and easy to understand, they suffer from some serious limitations.<br />Limited Use of Single Ratio:- A single ratio, usually, does not convey much of a sense.<br />To make a better interpretation a number of ratios have to be calculated which is likely to confuse the analyst than help him on making any meaningful conclusion.<br />Lack of Adequate Standards:- There are no well adapted standards or rules of thumb for all ratios which can be accepted as norms it renders interpretation of the ratios difficult.<br />Inherent Limitation of Accounting:- Like financial statements, ratio also suffer from the inherent weakness of accounting records such as their historical nature. Ratios of the past are not necessarily true indicators of the future.<br />Change of Accounting Procedure:- Change in accounting procedure by a firm often makes ratio analysis misleading. E.g.a change in the valuation of methods of inventories, from FIFO to LIFO increases the cost of sales and reduces considerably the value of closing stocks which makes stock turnover ratio to be lucrative and an unfavorable gross profit ratio.<br />Window Dressing:- Financial statements can easily be window dressed to present a better picture of its financial and profitability position to outsiders. Hence, one has to be very careful in making a decision from ratios calculated from such financial statements. But it may be very difficult for an outsider to know about the window dressing made by a firm.<br />Personal Bias:- Ratio are only means of financial analysis and not an end in itself. Ratios have to e interpreted and different people may interpret the same ratio in different ways.<br />Incomparable:- Not only industries differ in their nature but also the firms of the similar business widely differ in their size and accounting procedures, etc. it makes comparison of difficult and misleading. Moreover comparisons are made difficult due to differences in definitions of various financial terms used in the ratio analysis.<br />Absolute Figures Distortive:- Ratios devoid of absolute figures may prove distortive as ratio analysis is primarily a quantitative analysis and not a qualitative analysis.<br />Price Level Changes:- While making ratio analysis, no consideration is made to the changes in price levels and this makes the interpretation of ratio invalid.<br />Ratios no Substitutes:- Ratio analysis is merely a tool of financial statements. Hence, ratios become useless if separated from the statements form which they are computed. <br />Clues not Conclusions:- Ratios provide only clue s to analysts and not final conclusion. These ratios have to be interpreted by these experts and there are no standard rules for interpretation. <br />Classification of Ratios:<br />The use of ratio analysis is not confined to financial manager only. There are different parties interested in the ratio analysis for knowing the financial position of a firm for different purposes. In view of various users of ratios, there are many types of ratios which can be calculated from the information given in the financial statements. The particular purpose of the user determines the ratios that might be used for financial analysis.<br />Various accounting ratios can be classified as followed<br /> <br />Secondary Ratio<br />Balance Sheet RatioLiquidity RatiosProfitability RatioPrimary RatioProfit & Loss Account RatioComposite RatioLeverage RatiosActivity Ratios<br />Functional Classification in View of Financial Management or Classification According to Tests.<br />Liquidity Ratio:<br />(A)<br />1.
