In other words P&G can get TRL120m, TRL96m or TRL144m depending on the economic conditions. Based on their expectations, P&G treasurers choose to sell TRL96m forward at TRL1.90and buy TRL48m put option at TRL1.90 both with six month maturities. The cost of the put option is \$0.02.

## Balance Sheet Analysis

Obtain the latest annual report and accounts of a company of your choice.* Consult the Balance Sheet and determine the company's net asset value.

· What is the composition of the assets, i.e. the relative size of fixed and current assets?
· What is the relative size of intangible fixed and tangible fixed assets?
· What proportion of current assets is accounted for by stocks and debtors?
· What is the company's policy towards asset revaluation?
· What is its depreciation policy?

Now consult the financial press to assess the market value of the equity. This is the current share price times the number of ordinary shares issued. (The notes to the accounts will indicate the number of shares issued.)

· What difference do you find between the net asset value and the market value?
· How can you explain this?
· What is the P:E ratio of your selected company?
· How does this compare with other companies in the same sector?
· How can you explain any differences?
· Do you think your selected company's shares are under- or over-valued?
