o Identify your company, its industry, and analyze the important segments (percentage of sales or subsidiaries) of your company compared to its industry and its overall business.

o Perform a complete financial analysis of your chosen company’s financial statements—horizontal, vertical (percentage of sales and common-size), and changes in ratios—for the last two years.

 

Compare all ratios to industry averages.

Evaluate the company’s ratios against the industry averages.

Explain the significance of the company’s ratios when compared to industry averages.
