REPORT

For this report you will use Refinitiv Software to access financial information about the company you have been assigned.

You will be guided through this process during regular lab time
Half of you will attend the lab for the first hour; the remaining half will attend for the second hour.
Watch for a notification email for your time to attend.
Refinitiv software is also available in the Accounting Help Centre for you to use
Use the excel template in the dropbox of your D2L shell to complete the assignment
Use Refinitiv software to obtain:
Financial statement information for your assigned company for the two most recent years
o Download and save these statements to the excel sheet provided in the assignment dropbox

Do an internet search to obtain:
Industry standards or norms for the industry to which your assigned company belongs
Market share price for the company you have chosen

Using the excel template provided in the dropbox, and the financial statements saved in this same spreadsheet, calculate the required ratios for both years.

Use formulas in excel (linking to the financial statements) to calculate amounts. For example:

If there are values that are not available in your statements, clearly indicate on your spredsheet – it will be confirmed from the uploaded statements.

Make sure all areas of the spreadsheet are formatted so that ALL information is easily readable and can be seen clearly (no hidden text because of formatting).

Using what you have learned in chapters 3 and 4, prepare a financial analysis of the company. Once the ratios are calculated for both years, use this data to:

o What does this ratio itself indicate?

o What do these changes tell you?
o Did they increase or decrease, and what does this mean?
o Are they improving or doing worse than the previous year?
o How do they compare to the industry overall?
