How to Analyze Financial Statements

FALCON MANUFACTURING COMPANY
(Suggested Analysis)

Liquidity Ratios : 2006 2007
Current Ratio 1.5 2.33
Quick Ratio 0.88 1.42

Liquidity ratios measure the ability of the firm to meet its short term liabilities out of its current assets.

• Current ratio has increased from 1.5 to 2.33 which indicates that the liquidity position has improved in 2007.
• Quick ratio also shows an improvement in 2007 as compared to 2006.
• From the balance sheet, it can be seen that investment in current assets in 2007 has increased by 75% from 2006 whereas liabilities increased only by 12.5%. This has obviously contributed to the improvement in the liquidity ratios.
• It should also be observed that Cash has decreased from AED 900,000 in 2006 to only AED 50,000 in 2007. Similarly the majority of current assets are in the form of Accounts receivable, therefore it is important that the company collects its receivables quickly to maintain liquidity.

Asset Utilization Ratios 2006 2007
A/R turnover 6.4 times 3 times
Avg. collection period 57 days 120 days
Inventory turnover 5.1 times 4.7 times

The above ratios are a measure of how quickly the firm converts its current assets into cash.

• Both the A/R turnover and Average collection period indicate an unfavourable trend. This means that the company is taking a very long time to collect its accounts receivable.
• From the financial statements, we can see that in 2006, A/R represented 15.7% of Sales for the year but in 2007, A/R represented 33% of sales for the year.
Why? Are the customers not paying promptly? Is the company very lenient in collecting its receivables? It could also mean that the company may have given extended credit terms.

• Inventory turnover has…...

...HUM/150 Team B Week 3 Learning Team Assignment Color-vs-Black and White Study Spider-Man 2 and The Maltese Falcon Introduction Our assignment this week was to compare the effects of color versus black-and-white in films. Learning Team B selected Spider-Man 2 as the color film, and The Maltese Falcon as the black-and-white film. While referencing the influence of color and black-and-white imagery, we will examine the following topics: How color or black-and-white… • Contributed to the expression of each film • Influenced the atmosphere of the films • Affected characterization • Provided transitional changes • Helped mirror the director’s intent Expression Maltese Falcon Shot in black and white this film depends on the use of multiple elements to attain the desired emotional response and reaction to the characters and the plot of the story. The use of lighting to obtain physical shadow, create depth, and establish area and time are very important but lighting is also used to indicate darker or lighter moods and situations. Black & white is a great contribution to the expression of this story, it has layers and shades of grey that add to the overall enjoyment of watching this movie. Spider-Man 2 This movie portrays a comic book superhero and is shot in bright, bold, sometimes exaggerated colors to obtain this effect. It has moments of lightness with cooler coloring and lighting for a few romantic and comical scenes but for the most......

Ddt and Its Affects on Peregrine Falcons

...Brian Jones Melanie Raite Biology 1103 November 3, 2012 DDT and Its Effects on Peregrine Falcons The Peregrine Falcon (Falco peregrinus), or Duck Hawk, is a medium-sized raptor weighing 2 to 2 ½ pounds. These remarkable birds of prey measure 15-21 inches and have a wingspan of about 3 ½ feet. Their name, Peregrine, comes from the Latin word peregrinus, which means “to wander”. The name fits, given that they have one of the longest migrations in North America and are found on every continent besides Antarctica. Peregrine Falcons hunt pigeons, crows, waterfowl, starlings, jays, and other small to medium sized birds. They are also known to hunt for bats and other small mammals (Defenders of Wildlife). They are best known for their spectacular hunting methods in which they catch their prey mid-air. If that is not impressive enough, they do it while plunging at speeds of up to 200 miles per hour, killing or stunning its prey instantly (National Geographic). What is even more impressive than any of this is the fact that the Peregrine Falcon was on the verge of extinction and has made a remarkable comeback. The cause of their brush with extinction was the result of the use of organochlorine pesticides, mainly dichloro-diphenyl-trichloroethane (DDT) (The Santa Cruz Predatory Bird Research Group). DDT was first synthesized in 1874. However, its effectiveness as an insecticide was not discovered until 1939. This discovery was made by Dr. Paul Herman Müller of Switzerland.......

...Drummond hace nueva oferta a trabajadores El Viceministro de Relaciones Laborales convocó a los tres sindicatos de la empresa, pero Sintramienergética, el mayoritario, se negó a asistir. Luego de 14 días de haberse declarado la huelga en la minera Drummond y tras varios días sin conversaciones entre las directivas y los sindicatos, la segunda productora de carbón del país presentó a los tres sindicatos una nueva oferta para llegar a un arreglo laboral. Luego de una convocatoria realizada por el viceministro de Relaciones Laborales, José Noé Ríos, a los sindicatos Sintramienergética, Sintradrummond y Agretritrenes, los negociadores presentaron en Santa Marta una nueva oferta que incluye un bono de firma de 8,5 millones de pesos, así como un aumento salarial del 5 por ciento para el primer año, y del IPC más 1,5 por ciento para el segundo y tercer año. Frente a la última oferta hay aumentos, ya que la minera planteaba un bono de 7,5 millones de pesos por la firma de la convención, más un aumento de 4,75 por ciento para el primer año, y un reajuste del IPC más el 1,25 por ciento para el segundo año, y otro del IPC más el 1,5 por ciento para el tercer año. Según se conoció, a último momento Sintramienergética declinó asistir a la reunión, argumentando que las directivas de la minera debían realizar una reunión por separado, a lo cual la empresa no accedió, aunque remitió la propuesta por intermedio de Ríos. Aunque para Sintramienergética un elemento clave es que se cambie......

...will help us identify the possible vulnerable points of domestic automotive industry. Within the framework of the falcon and dove classic model, in order to model free competition for entering markets and finding a stable position, two kinds of auto manufacturers can be specified the doves which follow non-aggressive strategies, namely the institutions which seek low risk markets with average productivity and the prices which are quite low. Such investment, which is usually made in less developed markets, will end in an average value for the institution but there is no negative long term effect on market's total risk. On the other hand the falcons follow aggressive strategies. Institutions working in severely competitive markets with higher risks are of this type. When selling products, falcons move aggressively and the investment caused by their activities has the confusion potential in the market's stability. Both institutions fight for attracting the regional customers with average salaries. If both fight for a single market there is the possibility for both to be falcons, doves or a falcon and a dove. If a falcon and a dove fight for a market, the falcon will win because it offers quality various products which cost more. If two doves confront each other the market will be shared equally because it is supposed that both have the same offering for sale. If two falcons fight because of their similar characteristic the market will be shared equally, but the productivity of......

...of Mars. It has developed the Falcon 1 and Falcon 9 launch vehicles, both of which were designed from conception to eventually become reusable. SpaceX also developed the Dragon spacecraft, which are flown into orbit by the Falcon 9 launch vehicle, initially transporting cargo and later planned to carry humans to the International Space Station and other destinations.[1] By 2012, SpaceX had over 40 launches on its manifest representing about $4 billion in contract revenue—with many of those contracts already making progress payments to SpaceX—with both commercial and government (NASA/DOD) customers. As of December 2013, SpaceX has a total of 50 future launches under contract, two-thirds of them are for commercial customers.  SpaceX's low launch prices, especially for communication satellites flying to geostationary orbit, have resulted in market pressure on its competitors to lower their own prices. In recent years, the communications satellites launch market has been dominated by "Europe's Arianespace, which flies the Ariane 5, and International Launch Services (ILS), which markets Russia's Proton vehicle." Depending on a number of factors, mostly the size and weight of payload, the cost of a single launch ranges from $100 million to $260 million. With a published price of US$56.5 million per launch to low Earth orbit, SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rockets are already the cheapest in the industry. CEO Elon Musk attributes the low cost of SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket to its modular......

Case Study Week 3

...stakeholders in the “Balloon Ball Hoax” are the boy, Falcon Heene; the parents, Richard and Mayumi Heene, brothers, Bradford and Ryo Heene; Larimer County sheriff; Jim Alderman; Denver International Airport travelers and employees; National Guard unit; local police; search and rescue teams; media and news services; Colorado taxpayers; and the public. The public through the media watched and worried about the fate of the boy in the balloon. Colorado taxpayers footed the bill for the 50,000 USD cost of personnel time, equipment and other incidentals to track the balloon, search the rescue mission, and investigation of the hoax. Denver International Airport closed to avoid collision with the balloon. Travelers were delayed and flights rerouted and rescheduled. Airport employees had to remain calm and courteous as travelers became frustrated with delays, missed flight times and rescheduling. Local police, the National Guard unit, and search and rescue teams spent hours and used expensive equipment to track and hunt for the balloon and boy while Falcon was safe the whole time. Sheriff Jim Alderman had to conduct investigation under intense media scrutiny. At first, the media was incredulous that the parents were being questioned and investigated. Then Mr. Alderman was ridiculed for not detecting the hoax sooner. Falcon Heene was used by his parents to pull out the hoax that he was on a hot air balloon that had escaped it tether. Falcon was expected to lie and help his parent......

The Maltese Falcon-the Roles of Gender

...The Manly Man Versus The Femme Fatale Many of the characters in The Maltese Falcon attempt to gain leverage over one another in order to achieve their goals. While the men in novel use classic male intimidation and bullying characteristics, the female characters tend to rely on more subtle womanly approaches. The women in the novel obtain what they want by using their dainty innocence and their sexuality, also known as their “feminine charm,” to seduce the male characters into cooperating with them. Both the men and the women in the novel resort to the traditional gender-based methods of influence to get what they want. The female characters in the novel are able to utilize their femininity and sexuality to influence Sam Spade and the other male characters. An example of this technique is the complex relationship between Spade and Brigid O’Shaughnessy. After Joel Cairo offers Spade five thousand dollars for the recovery of the missing falcon, Ms. O’Shaughnessy attempts to regain Spade’s loyalty with payment as well but is unable to match Cairo’s offer: “It is far more than I could ever offer you, if I must bid for your loyalty.” After Ms. O’Shaughnessy accepts that she cannot use money to reclaim Spade, she instead tries to convince him with her sex appeal: “Can I buy you with my body?” This method is proven to be effective after Spade replies that he will “think it over” (57). Ms. O’Shaughnessy’s approach in this passage clearly expresses how women in the novel...

A Mattress to Represent the Masses

...strength and an astonishing amount of confidence to come forward so openly in society with a seemingly taboo topic. Columbia University’s response, or more accurately a lack of response, is indicative of the 21st century society unwilling to accept the occurrence of sex crimes in countries all over the world. This disregard for victims of sexual assault and rape is clearly apparent at the United States-Mexico border, a territory deemed a war zone by Sylvanna Falcon, author of “National Security and the Violation of Women: Militarized Border Rape at the US- Mexico Border”, due to the high militarization and heavy national defense concern. It is here that masses of women are raped or otherwise assaulted by border patrol. The US-Mexico border is a warzone according to Falcon because resembles a highly masculine and aggressive environment due to “the introduction and integration of military units in the border region” and “the modification of the Border patrol to resemble the military via its equipment, structure, and tactics” (Falcon 119). As immigrants attempt to gain entry into the United States, it is common for them to experience tense encounters with border patrol officers, many of whom once served in the official U.S. army. Raping and sexually assaulting women has come to be expected by immigrants and, for this reason, it is common for females to use birth control pills in anticipation of such encounters. Rape, a war crime, is ordinary in the border region. Females view......

...fuselage. The WhiteKnightTwo is keeping a record for being the largest carbon composite carrier craft in service. This aircraft has totally 172 flights until now. Similarly, the SpaceShipTwo is a larger version the SpaceShipOne. Although it uses much of the same technology, contruction and design of the first space ship, it is twice larger than the first one. Its design aims for the commercial service rather than only a proof of concept demonstration. The SpaceShipTwo can carry 6 passengers and 2 pilots. It will travel around 68 miles above the boundary between space and Earth’s atmosphere. The SpaceShipTwo has 42 feet wing-span, 60 feet length and 18 feet tail height. Its cabin is 90-inch diameter x 12 feet long and approximately the size of a Falcon 900 executive jet. There are large windows positioned throughout the cabin to afford maximum viewing potential for passengers, and the whole fuselage is also used for passenger cabin. Unlike SpaceShipOne, the second ship uses tricycle gear configuration, 2x wheeled main gear and 1x nose skid. The whole body of SpaceShipTwo is made of 100 percent carbon composite. For its propulsion, hybrid rocket motor is used benign fuel and oxidizer to be more controllable and able to shut down at any time during boost phase of flight. After being released from carrier aircraft, rocket motor is engaged for ascent to space. During re-entry and landing, there is no need for propulsion. This spaceship can achieve a velocity of supersonic within......

The Falcon Computer

...14. A small group of managers at Falcon Computer met regularly on Wednesday mornings to develop a statement capturing what they considered to be the “Falcon culture” Their discussions were wide -ranging, covering what they thought their firm’s culture was, what it should be, and how to create it. They were probably influenced by other firms in their environment, since they were located in the Silicon Valley area of California. Falcon Computer was a new firm, having been created just eight months earlier. Since the corporation was still in the start-up phase, managers decided that it 2 6752 would be timely to create and instill the type of culture they thought would be most appropriate for their organization. After several weeks of brainstorming, writing, debating, and rewriting, the management group eventually produced a document called “Falcon Values” which described the culture of the company as they saw it. The organisational culture statement covered such topics as treatment of customers, relations among work colleagues, preferred style of social communication, the decision-making process, and the nature of the working environment. Peter Richards read over the Falcon values statements shortly after he was hired as a software trainer. After observing managerial and employee behaviours at Falcon for a few weeks, he was struck by the wide discrepancy between......

Arthur Blank

...Arthur Blank Servant Leadership Brandon Crothers Management 310 9/6/11 Arthur Blank is the owner of the Atlanta Flacons. When I was growing up I use to watch the Falcons on television. My favorite player was Michael Vick because he was fast and a great quarterback. The reason I picked Arthur Blank was because Michael Vick got in trouble with dog fighting and that hurt the Falcons organization. Their reputation got hurt also but, Arthur Blank turned this franchise around and got its name back and brought the organization back to winning again. Arthur Blank is a servant leader because he listens and he put s the people before himself. Arthur Blank was born on September 27, 1942 in New York, New York and he received an accounting degree from Babson College. He worked as an accountant before joining a small pharmaceutical company started by his father. The company got bought by Daylin; So Blank became an executive at Daylin drugstore unit. Blank then moved to the Handy Dan Improvement Centers, this is a division of Daylin, where he met Bernard Marcus. In 1978, both Blank and Marcus were fired by Daylin over disagreements about the small chain's future and they decided to go into the home-improvement business. They looked at four cities to determine where the perfect location for their new home-improvement business. They then settled on Atlanta as the place with the right market and real estate conditions to test their theory that consumers would flock to huge......
