Creditworthiness and Organization’s Financial Performance

...Creditworthiness and Organization’s Financial Performance The present economical position of our country vastly influences the healthcare industry. Ever since the beginning of the 2000s, the need for change has been compounded by the devastated market crash that impacted the financial market with millions and trillions in losses due to executive mismanagement (Wareham, 2001). The future of the financial healthcare industry depends upon leadership performance and implementation. Erroneous decisions from leadership lead to devastating results in the financial aspect of the healthcare organization, which can prompt the leadership to solicit credit to resolve internal or external obligations. As a result, Campello Graham & Harvey (2010) found that during the financial crisis, 86% of constrained United States firms said that they bypassed attractive investments due to difficulties in raising external finance. In contrast, only 44% of unconstrained firms avoided such investments. Creditworthiness The organization develops creditworthiness based on debts paid and minimum credit established with the lenders. Organizations take advantage of the credit’s contribution to financial stability. The creditworthiness aspect of the organization provides a wealth of additional benefits. The borrower has the opportunity to receive a credit rating by the credit agency, and the credit rating flows across the organization’s performance throughout the life of the business, reflecting the......

Aci Financial Performance Analysis

... Chapter 1 Introduction 1.0 Introduction Financial analysis and performance evaluation of a company are vital facts for any company in today’s world. It includes different aspects of the company. This analysis assesses the viability, stability and profitability of the company. At some level every business decision involves financial analysis and valuation. Outside the firm, security analysts conduct financial analysis and valuation to support their buy/sell decision. This is necessary to price an initial public offering and to inform parties to sale, estate settlements, and divisions of property involving ongoing business concerns. Even credit analysts, who typically do not explicitly estimate firm value, must at least implicitly consider the value of the firm’s equity “cushion” if they are to maintain a complete view of the risk associated with lending activity. One of the aims of this study involves the use of analysis and valuation in order to know about the company’s current financial situation. Another aim of this report is to point out whether the share price of the company is overpriced/underpriced/accurately priced. ACI Limited was established as the subsidiary of Imperial Chemical Industries (ICI) in the then East Pakistan in 1968. After independence, the company was incorporated in Bangladesh in 1973 as ICI Bangladesh Manufacturers limited as a Public Limited Company. In 1992, the company was divested to local management and the name of the company changed to......

David Jones Financial Performance

...Executive Summary David Jones is an iconic Australian retailer, opened in Sydney 1838. This report considers the 2013 Annual Report and the financial performance for 2012 and 2013. The company operates in the retail trade sector with operations focussing on Department Stores (representing approximately 65% of earnings) and the associated Financial Services (representing approximately 35% of earnings). The department store sector is slowly declining as consumers move a larger portion of their household spending into online sales. Additionally, the incumbent stores (David Jones and Myer particularly) are being challenged by the arrival of well financed international competitors to the Australian market. The company has taken some strong leaps to maintain market share including building an Omni Channel capability, improvement in inventory management, reduction of its already low debt and working with suppliers to harmonising pricing. The report considers the financial performance of the company through the evaluation of financial ratios for profitability, efficiency, productivity, solvency and market performance. Overall the company currently is a profitable business with low gearing, high (but declining) sales and productive workforce. The Return on Equity improved from 37.5% in 2012 to 37.8% in 2013, positively confirming that many of the changes implemented by management during this period have been successful.

From the very first of its journey (Started by Industrial Promotion Company of Bangladesh Limited.) this industry has shown so much prospect as well as progress. Sharing some common characteristics of Banks & some of its own it brought diversification in the financial market. In the same time it witnessed impressive growth during the last years. In our country like most other industries financial institutions are also big city especially Dhaka concentrated. Financial institutions rarely spread their branches outside divisional cities let alone the urban areas. So the fierce competition among as well as across the group is strengthening. So the market segmentation, expansion and product diversification may be some key tools to get out of the situation for the FIs. But currently the industry seems to become matured with so many competitors. The recent inclusion of another two new financial institutions (Bangladesh Infrastructure Finance Fund Limited (BIFFL) & Agrani SME Financing Company Limited) in the market has increased the number of competitors at 31.

Improve the Financial Performance of Hospitals

...This paper analyzes the strategies and recommendations to improve the financial performance of Middlefield Hospital. The problem started when the chief financial officer (CFO) indicated that the financial performance of the hospital has been deteriorating over the last 6 months. Hospitals throughout the world are operating on tight budgets.Therefore; operational managers must find ways to reduce cost and “manage productivity across all areas and job categories” (Langabeer, 2008, p. 129). There are many factors contributed to this problem: The hospital is exceeding its budget, the new facility across town has continued to cut into Middlefield’s market share by admitting more patients and finally, the number of admissions to the hospital is declining each month and more uninsured patients are seeking services at the facility. The hospital has to change its strategies in order to improve its overall financial performance. These strategies include (1) spending on accounting systems to cut costs, increasing the accounts receivable collections, or increase legitimacy with stakeholders and donors; (2) improving efficiency through professional administration; (3) spending on advertising to increase revenues through increased market share and premium prices; and (4) offsetting patient care losses with substantial net income from sources not directly connected to patient care. After my convention with the Middlefield Hospital management team, we were able to identify the core facts...

Evaluating Financial Performance

...Financing New Ventures In Chapter 5, we learned about evaluating financial performance. We can evaluate performance by looking at financial ratios and conducting different forms of analyses. Some useful analyses are trend analysis, cross-sectional analysis, and industry comparables analysis. Trend analysis is used to examine a venture’s performance over time. Cross-sectional analysis is used to compare a venture’s performance compared to another company at the same point in time. Industry comparables analysis is used to compare a venture’s performance against the average company’s performance in the same industry. Next, we looked at MPC income statements and balance sheets. A major part of MPC is cash burn. Cash burn is the cash a venture expends on its operating and financing expenses, as well as its investments in assets. Another important part of MPC is cash build, which is equal to the (net sales – change in receivables). In order to find the net cash burn, you must subtract the cash build from the cash burn. Liquidity ratios, which indicate the ability to pay short-term liabilities when they come due, is also an important aspect. Another evaluation tool is the conversion period ratio. This ratio indicates the average time it takes in days to convert current assets and current liability accounts into cash. The operating cycle and the cash conversion cycle also play a part in the evaluation. There are also different types of conversion periods. They...

Financial Performance and Sustainability Efforts

...Financial Performance and sustainability efforts Name Institutional Affiliation Financial Performance and sustainability efforts Businesses are usually in business to make profits. The management takes a lot of time to evaluate the market and also the potential of the firm. The goals and objectives of most businesses are aimed at maximizing the profits they are currently getting. Some of the ways that have been used in the maximization of profits are increasing the products prices, getting cheaper labour and raw materials, and purchasing better machines for the organization. Increasing the prices of the products sometimes results in success but in most times it leads to low sales as the customers go for the substitutes which are much cheaper and affordable. Having cheap labour and raw materials is not always possible. As much as the business would like to improve its financial performance, measures taken should have a positive effect on the people and the environment. Profits are obtained from the subtracting the total input from the total sales. The sustainability of the business highly depends on the profits being made. The financial performance is not only important to the firm, but also to the shareholders and the investors. When a business has high returns, the shareholders get a higher share, and it also attracts the investors. Most business concentrates more in increasing the profits and just ignore their social responsibilities. A business that...
