  1. 1. Financial Reporting andAnalysis-UnderstandingIncome Statement
  2. 2. 2
  3. 3. Session Agenda• Understanding the Income Statement– Introduction to Income statement and its components– Principles of Revenue recognition• Discussion of Quiz question 1– Depreciation expense recognition• Discussion of Quiz question 4– Inventory expense recognition• Discussion of Quiz question 2– EPS and diluted EPS calculations• Discussion of Quiz question 33
  4. 4. Introduction to the Income Statement• Income statement is also known as:– “Statement of operations”/ “statement of earnings”/ "profit and loss statement (P&L)”• An income statement equation:– Revenues - Expenses = Net Income• Revenue– Gross Revenue– Net Revenue : Gross revenue adjusted for estimated returns & allowance– Example• Expenses can be grouped based on their function / nature:– By Function• Manufacturing Expenses: Raw material, labor and direct expenses are included in cost of goods sold• Selling and General & Administrative expenses– By Nature• Depreciation: Both on assets in manufacturing and administration are combined together• Research and development expenses• Estimated Gains/ Losses from discontinued operations:– Gain or loss which are not related to their normal business activities– For example, Gain (Loss) on sale of fixed assets (difference between book value and sale vale)4
  5. 5. • Presentation formats of Income Statements:1. Single-step• Revenue less Expenses : all items are groupedtogether as revenue or expenses2. Multi-step• Shows detailed presentation includingcalculation of gross profit, operating profit & netincome• Gross profit / loss: Revenue – Cost of GoodSold• Operating profit / loss (EBIT): Gross profit –Other Operating expenses (like SGA)• Income from continuing operations: Operatingprofit - Interest expense - Income taxes• Net Income = Income from continuingoperations + Earnings/ loss from discontinuedoperations5Introduction to the Income Statement (Cont…)

  7. 7. Revenue Recognition• According to the IASB, the term "income“ includes revenue and gains:– “Income is defined as increases in economic benefits during the accounting period inthe form of inflows or enhancements of assets or decreases of liabilities that result inincreases in equity, other than those relating to contributions from equity participants”• Revenue is recognized in the income statement when:– It is earned– Need not necessarily be recognized at the time of cash exchange• IASB guidelines for revenue recognition:1. Transfer of ownership’s risk and rewards to buyer2. Reliable Measurement of Revenues3. Reliable Measurement of associated costs4. Probable that economic benefits on sale will flow to the entityIncome is broad concept and includes gains / losses from non operating activitiesas well.7
  8. 8. Example: Quiz question• Question 1: An electronic goods company allows only its most valued customers to buy goodson credit in their store. For this, a background check of those customers is conducted to gaugetheir credibility. A customer ordered a laptop from the company in August. The good wasshipped and delivered in September. The payment was made in full by the due date inNovember. Assuming that the company follows accrual method of accounting, the mostappropriate month in which the company should recognize the revenue is:A. AugustB. SeptemberC. November8
  9. 9. Solution• Answer: B• Explanation: Since the delivery took place in September, the ownership “risk” is transferred.Also, there is a good probability of future flow of economic benefits because the credibility of thecustomers has already been tested. Hence, September is the right time to recognize therevenue.9
  10. 10. Long term Contracts: Revenue recognition methodsGenerally for the entities engaged in construction projects• Percentage of completion method:– Appropriate when the projects cost and revenue can be reliably estimated– Amount of revenue to be recognized =Total contract value x total cost incurred to date / total expected cost of the project– Accordingly, revenue, expense, and therefore profit, are recognized based on the % completed• Completed Contract Method:– Used when the outcome of a project cannot be reliably measured or– The project is short-term– Revenue, expense, and profit are recognized only when the contract is completed– But, if a loss is expected, the loss must be recognized immediately (Principal of conservatism)• Compared to completed contract method, percentage of completion method:– Recognizes revenue early hence it is more aggressive– Requires estimation of total costs hence subjectivity is involved– Provides smoother earnings and results in better matching of revenues and expenses over time• No impact on Cash flow: cash flows is same under both methods10* Important concept
  11. 11. Expenses Recognition• According to the IASB:“Expenses are decreases in economic benefits during the accounting period in the form ofoutflows or depletions of assets or incurrence of liabilities that result in decreases in equityother than those relating to distributions to equity participants”• Matching Principle:– Both revenue and associated expenses are matched and recognized in same period– Matching concept requires expenses to be recognized in the same period when revenues arerecognized for which expenses were incurred• E.g. inventory is purchased in Q4, 2008 and the goods are sold in Q1 2009, then, using the matchingprinciple, both the revenue and the cost of goods sold are recognized in Q1 200911
  12. 12. Depreciation and Amortization• Depreciation:– Long-lived assets provide economic benefits beyond one accounting period hence their costmust be matched with revenues of more than one accounting period– Depreciation is a charge for allocation of cost of long lived assets over their economic lives• It is the cost of using long-lived assets in business matched with revenues• Hence it requires to estimate the life as well as the rate of depreciation– Depreciation is charged for tangible assets like plant and equipment whereas amortization ischarged for intangible assets like patents / copyrights– Land is the fixed asset which is not depreciated while Goodwill is not amortized12* Important conceptMethod Used forDepreciation Tangible Fixed AssetsAmortization Intangible Fixed Assetswith finite livesImpairment Intangible Fixed Assetswith infinite lives
  13. 13. Depreciation Recognition Methods1. Straight-line depreciation– Equal amount of depreciation expense each period– Requires significant estimate for residual value and useful life2. Accelerated method of depreciation:– Allocates high depreciation in early period of assets life– Accelerated method is a conservative method because of low net income in early periods– Matching of expenses to revenues better in this method– Declining balance method is one of these methods• Applies a constant rate of depreciation to a declining book value– Double-declining balance method• DB does not explicitly use the assets residual value in the calculations, but depreciation ends once theestimated residual value has been reached.13
  14. 14. Example: Quiz question• Question 4: In January 2013, Starperf Company purchased a new equipment to use for itsoperations. The cost of equipment was $ 1, 20,000 and is expected to last for 8 years. Thesalvage value of the equipment is $ 20,000. The depreciation expense for the second year usingthe double declining balance method is closest to:A. 12,500B. 22,500C. 32,50014
  15. 15. Solution• Answer: B• Explanation:For year 1, Depreciation = (2/8)* (120000-0) = 30000For year 2, Depreciation= (2/8) * (120000-30000) = 22500Similarly, for year 3, Depreciation = (2/8) * (120000- 52500) = 1687515
  16. 16. Inventory Recognition• Specific identification method:– Use this method when a firm can identify exactly which items were sold and which remain in inventory– For example: an auto dealer records each vehicle sold or in inventory by its identification number• First-In, First-Out (FIFO) method:– The first item purchased is assumed to be the first item sold• Cost of goods sold (COGS) consists of costs of early purchases including beginning inventory• Inventory consists goods which are purchased more recently– FIFO is appropriate for inventory that has a limited shelf life.• For example: A company dealing in perishable goods will follow this method to sell its oldest inventoryfirst to keep the inventory on hand fresh• Last-in, First-out (LIFO) method:– The last item purchased is assumed to be sold first• Cost of goods sold (COGS) consists of costs which were purchased more recently• Inventory consists goods which were purchased early including beginning inventory– LIFO is appropriate when goods does not deteriorate with age• For example, a mining company will sell goods off the top of the pile16
  17. 17. Inventory Recognition Cont…• Weighted average cost:– Not affected by the physical flow of the inventory– Calculate weighted average cost of purchases to value both• Cost of goods sold• Closing inventory– Cost per unit is calculated by dividing cost of goods available by total units available– It is popular because of its ease of use17* Important conceptMethod COGS value Ending Inventory valueFIFO Initial purchases Recent purchasesLIFO Recent purchases Initial purchasesWeightedAverageAverage of all Average of all
  18. 18. Example: Quiz question• Question 2: Akash motors made the following inventory transactions in the current year:If the beginning inventory is 15 units @ $ 30, the year-end inventories using FIFO and LIFOmethods respectively are closest toA. $ 4200, $ 2950B. $ 3750, $ 2950C. $ 4200, $ 340018Purchase Sales50 units @ $ 50 20 units @ $ 6030 units @ $ 30 25 units @ $ 4060 units @ $ 60 30 units @ $ 50
  19. 19. Solution• Answer: C• Explanation: Year-end inventory using FIFO= (60X60) + (5X30) + beginning inventory= 3600+150+ (15X30)= 4200• Year-end inventory using LIFO= (50X50) + (15X30) + beginning inventory= 2500 + 450 +450= 340019
  20. 20. Earnings per share (EPS)• Most commonly used profitability performance measure for publicly-traded firms– Basic EPS – (company has only equity shares)– Diluted EPS – (company has both equity shares & convertible debentures)– All firms with complex capital structures must report both• Non-public companies are not required to report EPS data• Company’s capital structure:– Simple capital structure (basic EPS)• Contains only common stock, nonconvertible debt and nonconvertible preferred stock– Complex capital structure (basic and diluted EPS)• Contains potentially dilutive securities like Options, Warrants, or Convertible securities along withcommon stock20
  21. 21. Basic EPS• The concept is simple- we use the income available to “common” stockholders in thenumerator and the average number of outstanding shares in the denominator to get Earningsper share for a common shareholder• Weighted average number of common shares– Number of shares outstanding during the year weighted by the period they were outstanding forin a year21* Important concept
  22. 22. Diluted EPS• Diluted EPS is lower than Basic EPS• Diluted EPS is calculated when capital structure contains dilutive securities like stock options,warrants, convertible debt, or convertible preferred stock– These securities will decrease EPS if exercised / converted to common Stock• Each potentially dilutive security must be examined separately to determine if it is actuallydilutive• These securities could be anti-dilutive as well if these would increase EPS when they areexercised or converted to common stock• Anti dilutive securities are not considered in the calculation of diluted EPS22* Important concept
  23. 23. Example: Quiz question• Question 3: Lakshmi Corporation had 10,000 shares of outstanding common stock at thebeginning of the year. The company issued 4,000 new shares of common stock on July 1. Thecompany also issued 5% stock dividends on July 1. Finally, it issued 100 convertible bondswhich are each convertible into 15 common stock shares on September 1. Assuming that theconvertible bonds are dilutive, the weighted average numbers of shares to be used in computingbasic and diluted EPS respectively are closest to:A. 12000, 12500B. 12100, 12600C. 12000, 1250023
  24. 24. Solution• Answer: B• Explanation:The weighted average numbers of shares to be used in computing basic EPS= (10000)*(12/12) + (4000)*(6/12)*(1.05)= 12100The weighted average numbers of shares to be used in computing diluted EPS= (10000)*(12/12) + (4000)*(6/12)*(1.05) + (15X100)*(4/12)= 1260024

Transfer of ownership’s risk and rewards to buyerC. Reliable Measurement of Revenues25
  26. 26. 3. Calculate revenue to be recognized under percentage of completion method in 2009 forfollowing contract awarded in 2008 beginningTotal Contract Size = $100,000 , Total Estimated Costs = $80,000Costs incurred in 2008 = $20,000, Costs incurred till 2009 = $60,000A. $25,000B. $50,000C. $75,0004. What will be depreciation under double declining balance method given following information– PP&E Net Value = $50,000– PP&E Accumulated Depreciation = $10,000– Useful Life = 5A. $10,000B. $16,000C. $20,000Questions26
  27. 27. 5. Calculate diluted EPS given following information:– Net Income = $50,000; Dividend on preference shareholders = $5,000– No of shares outstanding at beginning of the year = 4000– No of shares issued mid of the year = 1000– Stock warrants: 100 – each warrant = 1 share; Exercise price = $50– Convertible Debt: 300, 8% bonds with par value of $30000; each bond is convertible in 2 common share– Average share market price = $75; Closing price = $60 ; Tax Rate = 30%A. $9.09B. $9.16C. $9.296. Inventory is reported in books atA. Cost using FIFO, LIFO or weighted average costsB. Net realizable valueC. Lower of cost or net realizable valueQuestions27
  28. 28. Answers1. B.– Operating profit = $10,000 - $6,000 - $1,000 - $500 = $2,500– Net Profit = 2,500 - $100 - $100 - $300 = $2,0002. A.– Evidence of an arrangement between the buyer and seller is pre requisite under SECguidelines3. B.– Revenue Recognized in 2008 = 20000 / 80000 * 100000 = 25000– Revenue Recognized till 2009 = 60000 / 80000 * 100000 = 75000– Revenue Recognized in 2009 = 75000 - 25000 = 500004. B.– DDB depreciation = ( 2 / useful life) * (cost – accumulated depreciation) = (2 / 5) * (50,000-10000) = 16,000– Net value is equal to cost – accumulated depreciation.28
  29. 29. Answers5. A.– Basic EPS: (50000 – 5000) / (4000*6/12 + 5000*6/12) = $10– Check whether each of securities are anti dilutive or not– Warrants = anti dilutive as exercise price is less than average market price– Convertible Debt =– Impact on Basic EPS => Interest * (1-tax rate) / shares to be issued on conversion= ((30000 * 8%)* (1-30%)) / (300*2) = $2.8= $2.8 is less than current basic EPS of $10 hence these bonds are dilutive– Diluted EPS = Nominator = (50000 – 5000) + ((30000 * 8%)* (1-30%)) = 46,680– Denominator = (4000*6/12 + 5000*6/12) + (100 – (100*50/75)) + (600) = 4500 + 33.33 + 600= 5133.33– Diluted EPS = $9.096. C.– Inventory is reported at the lower of Cost or Net realizable value. Net realizable value is theselling price of inventory less the estimated cost of completion and disposal costs.29
