FINANCIAL ANALYSIS Financial Analysis is the process of determining the operating and financial characteristics of a firm from accounting data and financial statements. The goal of such analysis is to determine efficiency & performance of the firm management, as reflected in the financial records and reports.Its main aim is to measure the firm’s liquidity, profitability and other indications that business is conducted in a rational and orderly way. “Financial statement analysis is largely a study of relationship among the various financial factors in a business as disclosed by a single set of statements, and a study of trends of these factors as shown in a series of statements. ” – John N. Myer. MEANING OF FINANCIAL STATEMENTS Financial statements refer to such statements which contains financial information about an enterprise.
They report profitability and the financial position of the business at the end of accounting period. It includes two statements which the accountant prepares at the end of an accounting period. They are: •The Balance Sheet •Profit & Loss A/C They provide some extremely useful information to the extent that balance sheet mirrors the financial position on a particular date in terms of the structure of assets, liabilities and owner’s equity and so on and the profit and loss a/c shows the results of operations during a certain period of time in terms of revenue obtained and the cost incurred during the year.Thus the financial statement provides a summarized view of financial positions and operations of a firm. FEATURES OF FINANCIAL ANALYSIS •To present a complex data contained in the financial statement in simple and understandable form.
•To classify the items contained in the financial statement in convenient and rational groups. •To make comparison between various groups to draw various conclusions PURPOSE OF ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL STATEMENTS •To know the earning capacity or profitability. •To know the solvency. To know the financial strengths.
•To know the capability of payment of interest & dividends. •To make comparative study with other firms. •To know the trend of business. •To know the efficiency of management •To provide useful information to management TYPES OF FINANCIAL ANALYSIS Financial statements are analysed by different parties for different purposes. The analysis is done from different angles. On The Basis Of Process of Analysis •Horizontal Analysis: This is used when the financial statement of a number of years are to be analysed.
Such analysis indicates the trends and the increase or decrease in various items not only in absolute figures but also in percentage form. This analysis indicates the strengths and weaknesses of the firm. This analysis is also called as dynamic analysis because it also shows the trend of the business.
•Vertical Analysis : This is used when financial statements of a particular year or on a particular date are analysed. For this type of analysis we generally use common size statements and the ratio analysis.It involves a study of quantitative relationship among various items of balance sheet and profit and loss account. This type of analysis is static analysis because this is based on the financial results of one year. Vertical analysis is useful when we have to compare the performance of different departments of the same company. It is also known as ‘Static Analysis’ as it concentrates solely on one year financial statement. On The Basis Of Information Available •Internal Analysis: This analysis is based on the information available to the business firm only .
Hence internal analysis is made by the management. Internal analysis is more reliable and helpful for financial decisions. •External Analysis: This analysis is made on the basis of published statements, reports and information. This analysis is made by external parties such as creditors, investors, banks, financial analysis etc. PARTIES INTRESTED IN FINANCIAL STATEMENT ANALYSIS The analysis of financial figures contained in the company’s profit and loss account and balance sheet by employing appropriate technique is known a financial statement analysis.Financial statement analysis is useful to different parties to obtain the required information about the organization.

Chapter II Review of Literature CHAPTER II REVIEW OF LITERATUREIt is mandatory to review the literature available with respect to the area of the research study. Measuring the performance of the corporate sector has always been the area of controversies from the point of view of the government, shareholders, prospective investors, creditors, employees and other stakeholders. Several studies have been undertaken to analyse the financial performance in the corporate sector.
The present chapter presents some of the studies conducted by the financial analysts in the past. Financial Performance Analysis-A Case StudyCurrent Research Journal of Social Sciences 3(3): 269-275, 2011 ISSN: 2041-3246 © Maxwell Scientific Organization, 2011 Abstract: The present study aims to identify the financial strengths and weaknesses of the Indian public sector pharmaceutical enterprises by properly establishing relationships between the items of the balance sheet and profit and loss account. The study covers two public sector drug and pharmaceutical enterprises listed on BSE.
The study has been undertaken for the period of twelve years from 1997-98 to 2008-09 and the necessary data have been obtained from CMIE database.The liquidity position was strong in case of both the selected companies thereby reflecting the ability of the companies to pay short-term obligations on due dates and they relied more on external funds in terms of long-term borrowings thereby providing a lower degree of protection to the creditors. Financial stability of both the selected companies has showed a downward trend and consequently the financial stability of selected pharmaceutical companies has been decreasing at an intense rate.The study exclusively depends on the public sectors published financial data and it does not compare with private sector pharmaceutical enterprises. This is a major limitation of the research. The study is of crucial importance to measure the firm’s liquidity, solvency, profitability, stability and other indicators that the business is conducted in a rational and normal way; ensuring enough returns to the shareholders to maintain at least its market value. The study will help investors to identify the nature of Indian pharmaceutical industry and will also help to take decision regarding investment.
Paul J. Fitz Patrick (1932) has conducted a study on 20 failed and 19 non-failed firms applying a trend of 13 financial ratios to examine whether there was a significant difference in the trend of ratios, at least three years prior to the failure he has found that there was a persistent difference and significant difference in all the ratios of failed firms in relation to those of non-failed firms. The best indicators were Net-profit to Net worth to Total debt and Net worth to fixed assets.Charles Merwin (1942) has found out that ratios are successful predictors of failure in five years prior to discontinuance.
The ratios namely Net-working capital to Total assets, Current ratio, Net-worth to Total debt were found to be extremely sensitive and the most significant predictor among them. Bain (1951) through his study on ‘Relation of profit rate of industry concentration’ found that the differences in industry concentration ratio or barrier to entry. He asserted the hypothesis by finding a correlation co-efficient of 0. 28 between rates of return on Net-worth of 42 industries.Beaver (1966) has taken a trend of 30 financial ratios for 79 paired failed and non-failed United States firms and has found that there was a significant difference in the ratios of both category of firms. In 1969 he has made a comparison of predictive ability of different ratio of the same paired firms and he has identified that three ratios namely Cash flows to Total debt, Net income to total assets and total debt to total assets are the best indicators. He has identified that the ratios of failed firms differed significantly from those of non-failed firms and they deteriorated sharply during the last five years prior to failure.SAMILOGLU ; DAMIRGUNES (2008) said that even though the profitability is constantly positive, inaccurate working capital management procedures may lead to bankruptcy of the firm.
They suggest that current, acid test, and cash ratios as traditional measures of liquidity are incompetent and static balance sheet measures that cannot provide detailed and accurate information about working capital management effectiveness. In their research formulas used for calculating them consider both liquid and operating assets in common and traditional ratios are not meaningful in terms of cash flow.NANDI (2011) made an attempt to examine the influence of working capital management on corporate profitability.
For assessing impact of working capital management on profitability of National Thermal Power Corporation Ltd. during the period of 10 years i. e. , from 1999-2000 to 2008-09 Pearson’s coefficient of correlation and multiple regression analysis between some ratios relating to working capital management and the impact measure relating to profitability ratio (ROI) had been computed and applied.An attempt had been undertaken for measuring the sensitivity of return of investment (ROI) to changes in the level of working capital leverage (WCL) of the studying company. KARADUMAN, AKBAS ; CALISKAN (2011) have tried to shed light on the empirical relationship between efficiency of working capital management and corporate profitability of selected companies in the Istanbul Stock Exchange for the period of 2005-2009.The companies should focus on working capital management in order to increase their profitability by seriously and professionally considering the issues on their cash conversion cycle which was derived from the number of day’s accounts payable, the number of day’s accounts receivable and the number of days of inventories. The findings suggested that it may be possible to increase profitability by improving efficiency of working capital.
MALLICK AND SUR (1998) made an attempt to analyse the impact of working capital management on profitability in Indian Tea industry with the help of some statistical tools and techniques.The study revealed that, out of the nine ratios relating to working capital management five ratios registered positive association and the remaining four ratios showed negative correlation with the profitability indicator. Rao ; Rao (1999) undertook a similar type of study where ten ratios relating to working capital management were selected. Out of these indicators, positive association was noticed only in three. CHEAKRABORTY (2008) evaluated the relationship between working capital and profitability of 25 selected companies in the Indian pharmaceutical industry during the period 1996-97 to 2007-08.Inadequacy of working capital may lead to the firm to insolvency, whereas excessive working capital implies idle funds which earns no profits. Therefore, efficient management of working capital is an integral part of the overall corporate strategy to improve corporate profitability. The partial regression coefficients shown in the multiple regression equation of ROCE on CR, ITR and DTR fitted in this study revealed that the liquidity management, inventory management and credit management made positive contribution towards improvement of the corporate profitability.
Altman (1968) took 66 firms in general and applied Multiple Discriminant Analysis to discriminate the failed firms from the non-failed firms as the basis of weighted combination of five financial ratios. The Weighted combination of Working capital to total liabilities, cumulative retained earnings to total assets, Earnings before interest and taxes to total assets, Market value of equity to book value of total debt and Sales to total assets was able to predict the bankruptcy with 45% degree accuracy.He also found that the predictive ability of the model declined very sharply when the number of years prior to the failure increased. Samules and Smith (1968) in their study on “Profits, variability of profits and firm size” have found the relationship between profitability (profit after tax on net assets) and size of the firm (net assets) and revealed that they were inversely related to each other for the years 1954-1963. Roger Cossaboom (1971) in his study “Lets Reason the profitability – liquidity Trade- off” has found out the significant importance gained by the profitability – Liquidity off.
He has identified four aspects namely liquidity, flexibility, sensitivity, innovation and segmental financing which should be examined by the firm to reduce the firms vulnerability to further liquidity squeeze he has identified financial flexibility and innovation by financial managers as the best approach for further liquidity management. Pinches, Mingo and Cauthers (1973) have applied factor analysis to classify 51 log transformed financial ratios of 221 compustat firms for four cross section of six years apart.The section of the method was prompted by application in other behavioural disciplines like psychology and organizational analysis. They identified seven factors Return on Investment, Capital intensiveness, Inventory intensiveness, financial leverage, Receivables intensiveness, short-term liquidity and cash position. These factors explained 78-92% of the total variance of the 51 financial ratios. Moreover the correlations for the factor loadings and the difference R-Factor analysis indicate that the ratio patterns are reasonably stable over time.
Banerjee (1974) studies the dangers of too little working capital and too much working capital by taking a case study he used certain ratio in order to analyse the working capital management performance. N. Krishna Rao and N.
Ramachandran (1977) studied the likely impact of reduction in current assets on the return on capital via the principal of working capital leverage for the few companies operating in the Indian corporate sector. For his study 18 companies belonging to 12 industry groups have been chosen.Johnson (1978) runs the factory analysis for a single year 1972 but for two industries based on a sample of 306 primary manufacturing and 61 retail firms. Congruency co-efficiency of financial ratios patterns indicates a good stability of the nine factors for the two industries. Bhabatosh Banerjee (1988) analysed the different turnover ratios such as debtors and the creditor’s turnover as well as the stock turnover ratio. The cash position and the cash movement are also examined with the effect of liquid ratio.Chen and Shimerda (1989) present a summary of the financial ratios used in a number of the early studies which used the financial ratios for analysis and prediction.
They note that there is an abundant 41 different financial ratios which are found useful in the earlier studies. They reconcile by judgment the factors in their earlier studies into financial leverage, Capital Turnover, Inventory Turnover, Receivables Turnover short term liquidity and cash position. They identify ten financial ratios which are representative of the seven factors.Panigrahi (1990) examined the liquidity position of the large Indian Companies for the period 1970-1971 to 1986-1987 with the help of standard financial ratio and working capital ratio have been computed to explain the significance of association between the ratios. Mansur A. Mulla (2001) have evaluated the financial stability and operation health of textile mills in the co-operative sector using Altman’s z scores analysis and found that the mill is in the verge of financial collapse due to inadequate working capital, negative earnings efore interest and taxes and poor liquidity position and the unit has to tone up the efficiency and effectiveness of the organization. K. Sankaran (2002) have applied altmans z score analysis to estimate the financial health of 10 pharmaceutical companies in India out of which five Indian companies and five Multinational corporations and has developed a model stating that if the z is less than 1:81, it indicates that the company is moving towards bankruptcy and if the z score lies between 1:81 and 2:99 it means grey area for the company and if the score value is above 2:99 it means that the company is healthy.
He has found that four out of five Multinational corporations were healthy and one falls in the grey area but in the case of the Indian Companies one falls in the healthy category three were in grey area and one in the bankruptcy zone. G. Sudarsasna reddy (2002) have analysed the financial performance of paper industry in Andhra Pradesh and suggested the following ways to strengthen the profitability position of the paper mills. ) Restructuring of finances ii) Modernization of technology for better operating performance iii) Use of fixed assets efficiently iv) Creation of adequate depreciation provision v) Optimization of inventory management vi) Strengthen the degree of liquidity vii) Adoption of sound credit viii) Cost minimization. Title: A Systematic Approach to Contextual Analysis in Small Business Asset- based Lending Authors: Scott, Stanl Sources: Secured Lender; Nov/Dec 2005, Vol 61 Issue 6, p104-113, 6p Abstract: The article provides information on a systemic approach to contextual financial analysis in small business asset- based lending.
The objective of financial statement analysis is to interpret result in a business environment. Key factors to consider in evaluating management impact on financial result include the company’s attempt to distinguish itself from competitors. Bollen (1999) conducted a study on Ratio Variables on which he found three different uses of ratio variables in aggregate data analysis: (1) as measures of theoretical concepts, (2) as a means to control an extraneous factor, and (3) as a correction for heteroscedasticity.In the use of ratios as indices of concepts, a problem can arise if it is regressed on other indices or variables that contain a common component. For example, the relationship between two per capita measures may be confounded with the common population component in each variable.
Regarding the second use of ratios, only under exceptional conditions will ratio variables be a suitable means of controlling an extraneous factor. Finally, the use of ratios to correct for heteroscedasticity is also often misused. Only under special conditions will the common form forgers soon with ratio variables correct for heteroscedasticity.Gerrard (2001) conducted a study on The Financial Performance on which he found that Using ratio analysis the financial performance of a sample of independent single-plant engineering firms in Leeds is examined with regard to structural and locational differences in establishments. A number of determinants of performance are derived and tested against the constructed data base. Inner-city engineering firms perform relatively less well on all indicators of performance compared with outer-city firms. The study illustrates the importance of using different measures of performance since this affects the magnitude and significance of the results.Financial support is necessary to sustain engineering in the inner city in the long run.
Johnson (2009) conducted a study on Financial Ratio patterns on which he found that the properties and characteristics of financial ratios have received considerable attention in recent years with interest primarily focused on determining the predictive ability of financial ratios and related financial data. Principal areas of investigation have included the prediction of corporate bond ratings and the anticipation of financial impairment].Related studies have examined the characteristics of merged firms the differences in financial ratio averages among industries whether firms seek to adjust their financial ratios toward industry averages the relationship between accounting-determined and market-determined risk measures, and the influence of financial ratios on analysts’ judgments about impending bankruptcy The general conclusion to emerge from these various research efforts is that a number of financial ratios have predictive and descriptive utility when properly employed.Title: Analysing The Financial Condition Of City Of Corona, California: Using A Case To Teach The Gasb34 Government – Wide Financial Statements. Authors; Chaney, Barbara A. 1, Source; Journal of Public Budgeting, Accounting & Financial Management; Summder2005, Vol. 17 Issue2, p180-201, 22p, 4charts Abstract: A financial statement analysis case uses the government-wide financial statements of Corona, CA to teach students about the financial overview provided in the new governmental financial reporting model.
Educators are struggling to incorporate the new model in their governmental accounting curricula.The case analysis is beneficial to students in three ways. First the active, case learning approach of using a real world example complements existing pedagogical materials for better mastery of the new reporting model.
Second, the case approach of using ambiguity and alternative solution and class discussion promotes the development of communication skills. To summarize the literature, Ratio analysis is a key dimension of financial management, suggesting a relationship between profit and loss as mentioned in the balance sheet of an organization. Its appropriate use will go toward giving a true picture of the financial health of the unit.Its benefits can be seen in areas of management, production, marketing, personnel management etc.
