Obtain faculty approval of your selected organization before beginning the assignment.
Prepare a 15-20 minute presentation to the stakeholders of your selected organization to discuss the financial strength of the company. You need to convince the investors to keep their stock, creditors to keep lending you money, employees to continue to work hard for the company’s continued success, and praise management’s effort. In order to do this, you will use financial statement analysis including:
• Horizontal and vertical analysis
• What do the liquidity, profitability, and solvency ratios reveal about the company’s financial position?
• What does the collected data reveal about the company’s performance and position compared to competitors?
This is NOT a presentation about ratio calculations. It is a presentation about the company’s financial position using ratios to prove your point.
Access the information contained in your selected organization’s balance sheet and income statement to calculate the following:
• Liquidity ratios
o Current ratio
o Acid-test, or quick, ratio
o Receivables turnover
o Inventory turnover
• Profitability ratios
o Asset turnover
o Profit margin
o Return on assets
o Return on common stockholders’ equity
• Solvency ratios

Create a horizontal and vertical analysis for the balance sheet and the income statement.
Show your calculations for each ratio.
