Ratio Name Purpose of Ratio Ratio Answer What do the ratios tell you about Landry's financial performance?
2003 2002
1 Net Profit Margin Computes the percentage of sales the company keeps after deducting expenses. . 4.2% 4.6%
Sales increased from $41.5 million in 2002 to $45.9 million in 2003. However, Landry's net profit margin declined from 4.6% in 2002 to 4.2% in 2003. This decrease in net profit margin is primarily due to a decline in Landry's gross profit percentage. Gross profit percentage is the amount of profit after deducting the cost of Landry's operations. This means Landry's cost of providing restaurant services (food and service costs) increased more than Landry's sales. This could be due to Landry's opening new restaurants which incur full operating costs but the new restaurants need to build sales.

2 Gross Profit Percentage Computes the percentage of sales the company keeps after deducting cost of revenues
Landry's gross profit has been declined from 71.2% to 70.9% in 2003. It is a slight decrease even thoudh sales of Landry has been increased from $894.8 million in 2002 to $1,105.8 million in 2003. The decrease may result from the increase in Landry's cost of revenues, which increased more than the increase in sales. This could be due to Landry's opening new restaurants, which incur full operating costs but the new restaurants need to build sales.

Prepare Income Statements of Flexibly Designed

This project should be completed using Excel (with formulas and linked data). The parameters of the project are below:

1. Prepare an Income Statement for the year ended 2011. This statement should be flexibly designed (formulas in cells). This should be a multi-step income statement (see video and/or exhibit 4.1 on pg. 4-5). To the right of your dollars in this statement, show common-sized percentages based on sales (vertical analysis).

2. Show journal entries, adjusting entries and closing entries for the below additional information...none of the journal entries have been posted to the ledger (many journal entries have been booked to get you started, however none of the entries for 2011 have been posted). You can add a transaction analysis (not required), however you must show actual journal entries that include debits and credits.

3. Prepare a Statement of Retained Earnings for the year ended 2011. This statement should be flexibly designed.

4. Prepare a Balance Sheet dated Dec. 31, 2011. Have the Balance Sheets for 12/31/10 and 12/31/11 on the same Excel sheet labeled Balance Sheets. Again, a flexible design is required so any changes will automatically update the balance sheet.

5. Prepare a Statement of Cash Flows using the indirect method for the year ended 2011. The Statement of Cash Flows (operating section) should automatically change when assumptions are changed. The ending cash as shown on the statement of cash flows will then flow to the Balance Sheet. Cash flow videos are still available in the classroom for your review and appendix B in your textbook contains additional information that you might find helpful.

6. Analysis: on a separate sheet titled "Analysis" compute the following and show in a table (show your work below your table); your table should look similar to that on page 4-21:
a. ROE for 2011
b. ROA for 2011
c. RNOA for 2011
d. Stockholders' Equity for 2010 and 2011
e. Net Income for 2011
f. NOPAT for 2011
g. NOA for 2010 and 2011
h. NOPM for 2011
i. NOAT for 2011
j. NNO for 2010 and 2011
k. Current Ratio for 2010 and 2011
l. Quick Ratio for 2010 and 2011
m. Liabilities-to-Equity Ratio for 2010 and 2011

6. The building depreciates at $5,000 per year.
7. Half of the marketable securities were sold for $1,200. The FMV and cost of the other half of the securities are the same, so no adjustment to FMV is required.
8. Salaries are $2,200 per month (12 months of salaries expense must be booked). It is expected that one-half month will be owed on 12/31/11 because of when payday falls (therefore, 11.5 months of salaries have been paid and ½ month is still owed to the employees at year end).

14. The tax rate is 30 percent. Income taxes for the current year are due and therefore paid during the first two months of the next year (you will have complete an entry to pay the 2010 taxes, however the 2011 taxes will not be paid until the end of January 2012).
15. Dividends of $3,000 were paid during 2011.
16. The unearned revenue has been earned during the year (classified as other revenue on the multi-step income stmt.).
