It will have to explain any substantial issues that appear on the financial statements and common size statements. Identify any material differences or variances from year to year and relative to key competitors. Three years of financial statements should be used.
I need to be able to demonstrate an example of a Financial Ratios. It will need help in the calculation and presentation of three years of financial ratios together with the most recent financial ratios for the key competitors. I have aggregated the financial statements of the key competitors and then calculate these competitor ratios based upon this aggregated set of financial statements. I need to learn each financial ratio by referencing differences or variances of company A to the competitor ratios of company B and C, and I would like to be able to discuss each financial ratio by referencing differences or variances of company A to itself across time.
