I need you to evaluate our organization’s financial condition using ratio analysis. The information you will require is in our most recent 10-K Annual Report. For your analysis, use one key ratio from two of the following key categories of ratios: liquidity, debt, profitability and activity. For each of the two, state the ratio you selected, why you chose it, and what it generally communicates about an organization’s financial performance. Calculate these key ratios for the last several years. Discuss how they are changing and what that suggests about how our organization is performing financially. Provide recommendations for improvement. I’ll need your response in memo format to distribute at our upcoming general management meeting.
Teacher Note: A Form 10-K is an annual report submitted by each corporation on the stock exchange to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). In it a corporation is required to provide a complete summary of their financial performance. 10-K Reports are available for free on the SEC’s website (http://www.sec.gov/edgar/searchedgar/companysearch.html) or you can search for them using “Form 10-K annual report” and the corporation’s name. You may select any corporation you so desire. Choose one that interests you.
