Now lets discuss about the Financial Reports & facts about the company..! Assumed we are explaining to non financial professionals What are Financial statements? And what is it used for? Financial statements are records that provide an indication of an individual‟s, organization‟s, or business‟ financial status. There are four basic types of financial statements: balance sheets, income statements, cash-flow statements, and statements of retained earnings. Typically, financial statements are used in relation to business endeavours. Balance sheet financial statements are used to provide insight into a company‟s assets and debts at a particular point in time. Information about the company‟s shareholder equity is included as well. Typically, a company lists its assets on the left side of the balance sheet and its debts and liabilities on the right. Sometimes, however, a balance sheet has assets listed at the top, debts in the middle, and shareholders‟ equity at the bottom. Income financial statements (Profit & Loss Account) present information concerning the revenue earned by a company in a specified time period. Income statements also show the company‟s expenses in attaining the income and shareholder earnings per share. At the bottom of the income statement, a total of the amount earned or lost is included. Often, income statements provide a record of revenue over a year‟s time. Cash-flow financial statements provide a look at the movement of cash in and out of a company. These financial statements include information from operating, investing, and financing activities. The cash-flow statement can be important in determining whether or not a company has enough cash to pay its bills, handle expenses, and acquire assets. At the bottom of a cash-flow statement, the net cash increase or decrease can be found. Statements of retained earnings show changes in a companys or organization‟s retained earnings over a specific period of time. These statements show the beginning and final balance of retained earnings, as well as any adjustments to the balance that occur during the reporting period. This information is sometimes included as part of the balance sheet, or it may be combined with an income statement. However, it is frequently provided as a completely separate statement. The average individual does not typically have a use for financial statements. However, sole proprietors may use them in the same manner as other businesses. High-net-worth individuals may also use them for the purpose of obtaining loans, participating in investment deals, and developing financial, tax, and business plans.Source: http://www.wisegeek.com/what-are-financial-statements.htm

The decline was primarily driven by reduced voice revenue resulting from continued market and regulatory pressure on pricing and slower usagegrowth partially offset by growth in data and fixed line.

Fixed line revenue increased by 7.7%(*) with the number of fixed broadband customers reaching 5.4 million at 31 March 2010, a net increase of960,000 customers during the financial year.In Africa and Central Europe service revenue fell by 1.2%(*), a 4.3 percentage point decline on the previous year resulting from challenging economic conditions inCentral Europe, mobile termination rate cuts across the region and competition led pricing movements in Romania partially offset by strong growth in Vodacom.

Strong revenue growth in Vodacom, combined withdirect and customer cost savings partially offset the decline in Central Europe.In Asia Pacific and Middle East EBITDA increased by 1.4%(*), with growth in India being partially offset by declines in other markets due to pricing andrecessionary pressure and the start-up in Qatar.Operating profit increased primarily due to changes in impairment losses. In the 2010 financial year, the Group recorded net impairment losses of £2,100million. Vodafone India was impaired by £2,300 million primarily due to intense price competition following the entry of a number of new operators into themarket. This was partially offset by a £200 million reversal in relation to Vodafone Turkey resulting primarily from movements in discount rates. In the prioryear impairment losses of £5,900 million were recorded.Adjusted operating profit decreased by 2.5%, or 7.0%(*) on an organic basis, with a 6.0 percentage point contribution from favourable exchange rates, whilstthe impact of merger and acquisition activity reduced adjusted operating profit growth by 1.5 percentage points.The share of results in Verizon Wireless, the Group‟s associate in the US, increased by 8.0%(*) primarily due to the expanding customer base, robust datarevenue and operating expenses efficiencies partially offset by higher customer acquisition and retention costs.What is EBITDA? Earnings Before Interest, Tax, Depreciation and Amortization
Current Ratio = Current Assets / Current Liabilities= 14219 / 14579= 0.97This means that for every $1 of debt or liability, Vodafone Plc has $0.97 of Cash to settle the liability which is not enough. The general rule of thumb is the higher the current ratio, the better.Most investors prefer a Current Ratio of 2:1 meaning $2 of Current Assets for every $1 of Current Liabilities.The increase in other current liabilities from £13.8 billion at 31 March 2009 to £14.6 billion at 31 March 2010 was primarily due to foreign exchange differences arising on translation of liabilitiesin foreign subsidiaries and joint ventures.Reason why the current liabilities are higher than the current assets are could be due toExpanding Business Operations Investing in Short Term Securities and earning interest.But the Vodafone Plc has growing earnings and, for the most part, growing cash flows and growing revenues.Current assets have increased in 2010 comparing to the 2009 by Performance indications/ Percentages explained here… How to calculate the growth percentage % (New/Current Figure – Old/previous Figure) / Old/previous Figure * 100 What is Ratio Analysis ? Whats the use of it? Performing Ratio Analysis is very important for a company/small business or an individual. Ratio Analysis is basically comparing previous and current financial raw datas/figures making some analysis, assumptions and predictions for the future well being of the business. Not only it says the current and future situation of the business but also it helps to bring down the higher volume of data in to a small volume. Few Important ratios are discussed below
Ratio Analysis Non current assets are up by 2.21% [(142766 - 139670) / 139670 * 100] Equity is up by 4.8% [(90381 – 86162) / 86162 * 100]Non current liabilities are gone down 6% [(37559 – 39975 ) / 39975 * 100] due the settlement (down) of long term borrowings 9.8% [(28632 - 31749) / 31749 * 100] Return on owners equity This ratio measures the effectiveness of the funds in the business Formula: Net profit before tax / owners equity * 100 = 8674 / 90810 * 100 = 9.5% Measures the return on owners funds invested in the business Return on Assets Measures of return on total assets employed in the business Net profit before tax / total assets * 100 =8674 / 156985 * 100 =5.5% Margins Measures the profitability of the business Gross profit margin Measures the numbers of cents for each dollar of sales available to meet operating expenses Gross profit / sale * 100 =15033 / 44472 * 100 = 33.8% Expense ratio Measures the number of cents for each dollar of sales used on operating expenses Expense / sales * 100 = 10409 / 44472 * 100 = 23.4% Net profit margin Measures the number of cents for each dollar which is available for tax and to the owner as a return Net profit before tax / sales * 100 = 8674 / 44472 * 100 = 19.5%
Turnover Solvency Measures the ability of the business to meet its debts in the long term measure the efficiency with which assets are being managed Equity ratio Assets turn over ratio Measures the level of funds provided by the internal sources Measure the efficiency with which assets are used to generate sales Owners equity / total assets * 100 Sales / total assets = 90381 / 156985 * 100 = 44472 / 156985 =57.5% =28.3% Stock turn over ratio Debt ratio Measure the efficiency of how inventory holdings are being managed Measure the level of funds provided by the external. Sources Cost of goods sold / stock Total liabilities / total assets * 100 = 29439 / 433 = 66175 / 156985 * 100 =67.9 = 42.1% Liquidity Measures the ability of the business to meet its debt in the short term Current ratio Measures the ability of the business to meet its debt Current assets / current liabilities = 14219/ 28616 =0.50:1 Explanation: So far this means that the business is not doing good which means that the every $1 of liability of the business has only 50 Cents to settle. this doesn’t mean that the business is going down thecurrent liabilities has increased due to the short term borrowings how ever the business has a very healthy $7.2 billion of free cash flow in order to meet the day to day liabilities. Liquidity ratio Measures the ability of the business to meet its debts (current assets - stock) / (current liabilities - bank overdraft) =(14219 – 433) / (28616 – 11163) = 13786/17453 =0.78 Average collection period Measure the efficiency of accounts receivable (debtors) collection rates.The revenue for Vodafone is mainly generated in voice/data/ fixed line internet connections by post payment method or prepay method by the subscribers as the payment s are made at the point ofsales financial statement has been made on that basis. However the average collection period for the Vodafone group plc is 65 days.

2011 financial year PredictionsVodafone is ringing up sales well ahead of predictionsRead more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/money/article-1297224/Vodafone-ringing-sales-ahead-predictions.html - Last updated at 10:54 PM on 23rd July 2010“Bosses at Vodafone yesterday bolstered their defences against attack from dissident shareholders when they unveiled sales figures well ahead of predictions.The £79billion mobile phone group saw its shares rise 0.9p to 149.9p after it announced that revenues from its worldwide operations have shown underlying growth for the firsttime since the onset of the global recession. Over the three months to June, revenues were £10.6billion, an underlying increase of 1.1 per cent on a year earlier. In the UK, salesrose 0.7 per cent to £1.2billion.Earlier this week, one of Vodafones investors, the Ontario Teachers Pension Plan, attacked the company for its poor record on acquisitions and vowed to vote against the re-election of chairman Sir John Bond at next weeks shareholders meeting. “We expect the Group to return to low levels of organic revenue growth during the 2011 financial year although this will be dependent upon the strength of theeconomic environment and the level of unemployment within Europe.In contrast revenue growth in emerging economies, in particular India and Africa, is expected to continue as the Group drives penetration and data in thesemarkets.EBITDA margins are expected to decline but at a significantly lower rate than that experienced in the previous year. Adjusted operating profit is expected to bein the range of £11.2 billion to £12.0 billion. Total depreciation and amortisation charges are expected to be slightly higher than the prior year, before theimpact of licence and spectrum purchases, if any, during the 2011 financial year.Free cash flow is expected to be in excess of £6.5 billion reflecting a continued but lower level of benefit from the working capital improvement programmelaunched in the 2010 financial year. We intend to maintain capital expenditure at a similar level to last year, adjusted for foreign exchange, ensuring that wecontinue to invest in high speed data networks, enhancing our customer experience and increasing the attractiveness of the Group’s data services.The adjusted tax rate percentage is expected to be in the mid 20s for the 2011 financial year with the Group targeting a similar level in the medium-term. TheGroup continues to seek resolution of the UK Controlled Foreign Company and Indiatax cases.Three year free cash flow and dividend per share growth target We expect that annual free cash flow will be between £6.0 billion and £7.0 billion, ineach of the financial years in the period ending 31 March 2013, underpinning a dividend per share growth target of at least 7% per annum for each of thesefinancial years. We therefore expect that total dividends per share will be no less than 10.18p for the 2013 financial year.AssumptionsGuidance is based on our current assessment of the global economic outlook and assumes foreign exchange rates of £1:€1.15 and £1:US$1.50 throughout thisthree year period. It excludes the impact of licence and spectrum purchases, if any, material one-off tax settlements and restructuring costs and assumes nomaterial change to the current structure of the Group. With respect to the dividend growth target, as the Group‟s free cash flow is predominantly generated bycompanies operating within the euro currency zone, we have assumed that the euro to sterling rate remains within 10% of the above guidance exchange rate. A1% change in the euro to sterling exchange rate would impact adjusted operating profit by approximately £70 million and free cash flow by approximately £60million.
