For answers to the questions below, read the Notes to the Financial Statements presented immediately after the financial statements. This is usually part of section 8 of the SEC 10-K. Section 7 is Management and Analysis (M&A). Section 15 is often referenced as financial exhibits.

Who owes money to your Sec 10K Company? What information did you find about Accounts Receivables in the Notes to the Financial Statements section? Do not merely cut and paste from the SEC 10 K report. Summarize the information using your own words as much as possible. 20 points

Business Report Accounts Receivables and Inventory
I.

Accounts Receivable (figures reported in millions)

In the year 2018 and 2017, accounts receivables equal $3,396 and $3,667 respectively. Therefore,
accounts receivables decreased by $271. This represents a 7% decrease in the accounts receivable.
This change is not significant since Coca-Cola is a big company with huge amounts of trade
accounts receivable. Notably, a decrease in accounts receivables may imply that the company has
improved in collecting cash on their accounts receivable. On the notes to the financial statement,
there is no information as to who owes Coca Cola money but it is mentioned that significant of
this amount of accounts receivable is from the sales of Coca Cola products in international markets.
It is also mentioned that the accounts receivables are reported in their net realizable value. Net
realizable value equals total accounts receivables less any allowances.
