This program covers how to calculate and analyze the basic set of financial statement (or tax return) ratios for operating businesses. Preliminary steps (covered in related programs) include understanding the types of financial statements and level of accountant involvement, distinguishing between cash and accrual accounting methods, and the unique format and features of business tax returns. We now turn to the four primary sets of ratios: (1) liquidity, (2) leverage, (3) profitability, (4) efficiency, and (5) debt coverage. Using a comprehensive case, calculations are demonstrated, as wells as major issues, strengths and limitations of the various ratios. Participants will work from a ratios reference guide that is intended to be a resource for future statement spreading.
Topics to be covered include:
Target Audience: Credit analysts, portfolio managers, assistant relationship managers, community bankers, small business lenders, commercial lenders, consumer lenders, branch managers that lend to business owners, private bankers, special assets officers, loan review specialists and others involved in business and commercial lending
