Financial Reporting Annual Notes

Obtain the most recent annual financial statements and notes (annual report or 10-K) for Monro Muffler Brake, Inc. (MNRO).

You are asked only for selected financial statement analysis of your company. In your report, discuss trends, financial position, ratios, etc. only if relevant for evaluating the quality of reported financial information or specifically required by the project. For example, it may be helpful to discuss inventory turnover when assessing inventory valuation risk.

To assess a company's financial statements, think specifically about: (1) the types of underlying transactions and events that affect the company, (2) how well the financial accounting rules (i.e., GAAP) reflect those transactions and events, (3) the aggressiveness or conservatism of management's accounting choices, and (4) how the annual report helps you assess the company's risks, financial position, and profitability.

Additional valuable information about the Company is in the MD&A report. This information may help you understand the company's business policies and practices.

For each item below, provide an easy to read and understandable presentation of the facts for your company.

1. REVENUE RECOGNITION AND RECEIVABLES VALUATION:
? Types of revenue transactions (e.g., cash, credit, or advance customer orders, etc.)
