ACCT 604 - FINANCIAL STATEMENT ANALYSIS
This course is designed to prepare you to interpret and analyze financial statements for tasks involving credit and security analyses, lending and investment decision, and other decisions that must rely on financial data. This course, therefore, explores in greater depth financial reporting topics from the perspective of financial statement users. We develop sufficient understanding of the concepts and recording procedures to enable you to interpret various disclosures in an informed manner. We discuss each financial reporting issue in terms of its effect on assessments of a firm’s profitability and risk. We then apply analytical tools and concepts in competitor analysis, credit and investment decision, bankruptcy prediction, and valuation. The importance of Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in the preparation of the annual report will be a primary focus of the class. The valuation process including ratio analysis will be illustrated in a dynamic and “real-life” business case scenario. The subjective nature of valuation, from both a historical and fair market value perspective, will be discussed and illustrated through case discussion and analysis. In addition, generally Accepted Accounting Principles and the international reporting environment will be woven throughout the class.
