Analysis of the Financial Performance of a Company

Analyze and discuss the recent financial performance (the last five years) of your company.

Your analysis must compare your company to one other listed company operating in the same business sector, using the Financial Times classification of business sectors. Your analysis and discussion should consider the following areas:

  • Historical trends in accounting statement entries (for example, turnover, profit, dividends, cash flow from operations, long-term debt, and so on).
  • Historical trends and inter-company comparisons of relevant accounting ratios (for example, return on capital employed, net profit margin, earnings per share, debt/equity ratio, current ratio, and so on).
