The future plans of the firm should be laid down in view of the firm financial strengths and weakness. Thus, financial analysis is the starting point for making plans, before using any sophisticated forecasting and planning procedures. Understanding the past is a prerequisite for anticipating the future. Users of financial analysis Financial analysis is the process of identifying the financial strengths and weaknesses of the firm by properly establishing relationships between the items of the balance sheet and the profit and loss Account.
Financial analysis can be undertaken by management of the firm, or by parties outside the firm. viz owners, creditors, investors and others. The nature of analysis will differ depending of the purpose of the analyst. a. Trade Creditors: Trade Creditors are interested in firm’s ability to meet their claims over a very short period of time. Their analysis will, therefore, confine to the evaluation of the firm’s liquidity position. b.

They analyze the firm’s profitability over time, its ability to generate cash to be able to pay interest and repay principal and the relationship between various sources of funds (capital structure relationships). Long term creditors do analyze the historical financial statements, but they place ore emphasis on the firm’s projected or pro forma, financial statements to make analysis about its future solvency and profitability. c.

Nature of ratios Ratio analysis is a powerful tool of financial analysis.
A ratio defined as “the indicated quotient of two mathematical expressions” and “the relationship between two or more things. ” In financial analysis a ratio is used as a firm. the absolute accounting figures reported in the financial statements do not provide a meaningful understanding of the performance and financial position of a firm. An accounting figure conveys meaning when it is related to some other relevant information. For example, a Tk. 5 crore net profit may look impressive, but the firm’s performance can be said to be good or bad only when the net profit figure is related to the firm’s investment.
The relationship between two accounting figures, expressed mathematically, is known as a financial ratio(or simply as a ratio. ) ratios help to summarize large qualities of financial data and to make qualitative judgement about the firm’s financial performance. For example consider current ratio. It is calculated by dividing current assets by current liabilities; the ratio indicates a relationship quantified relationship between assets and current liabilities. This relationship is an index or yardstick, which permits a qualitative judgement to be formed about the firm’s ability to meet its current obligation.
It measures the firm’s liquidity. The greater the ratio, the greater the firm’s liquidity and vice versa. The point to note is that a ratio reflecting a qualitative relationship helps to form a qualitative judgement. Such is the nature of all ratios. Standard of Comparison The ratio analysis involved comparison for a useful interpretation of the financial statements. A single ratio in itself does not indicate favorable or unfavorable condition. It should be compared with some standard. Standards of comparison may consist of. a. Past ratios: i. e. atios calculated from the past financial statement of the same firm. b. Competitors’ ratios: i. e. ratios of some selected firms, especially the most progressive and successful competitor, at the same point in time c. Industry ratio: i. e. ratios of the industry to which the firm belongs; and d. Projected ratios: i. e. ratios developed using the projected or Performs, financial statements of the same firm.
