Acct 611, Annual Report Project, Winter 2018 Overall Instructions and Chapter 1 American Apparel, Inc. and Urban Outfitters, Inc. are competitors in the apparel manufacturing industry. American Apparel experienced financial hardship, leading to it filing for chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on October 5, 2015. This project must be submitted no later than Sunday, March 4, 11:30pm, electronically through the Canvas assignments function. This project will consist of preparing two reports. Report 1: a comparative financial analysis of American Apparel and Urban Outfitters, for the years 2011 – 2014. Please note that the fiscal year ends are slightly different for the two companies. For American Apparel, the fiscal year ends are 12/31/14 for 2014, 12/31/13 for 2013, 12/31/12 for 2012, and 12/31/11 for 2011. For Urban Outfitters, the fiscal year ends are 1/31/15 for 2014, 1/31/14 for 2013, 1/31/13 for 2012, and 1/31/12 for 2011. What you will do is use analytical techniques to evaluate the relative financial health of both of these organizations. Will your analysis show that American Apparel was in greater financial trouble? We’ll see. Urban Outfitters’s balance sheets and income statements are on pages F-3 and F-4 of their 2012 10-k and pages F-3 and F-4 of their 2014 10-k. American Apparel’s income statements and balance sheets are on pages 57 and 58 of their 2012 10-k and pages 46 and 47 of their 2014 10-k. The benefit of this analysis is to expose you to analytical techniques that will be useful in assessing the financial health of businesses. Industry averages are available to compare analyses with, but for this project all you need do is compare American Apparel with Urban Outfitters. You will be given instructions by chapter on the analyses to be performed. Your finished product is to be typed, logical, and easy to follow. Be careful not to have analyses split inappropriately by page breaks. Your final report should have all detailed analyses you are instructed to do, with an assessment made after each comparative analysis. Also, an executive summary is to be prepared and shown at the beginning of your paper, giving your final judgment of the relative financial health of American Apparel and Urban Outfitters, giving reasons for your conclusion regarding the relative strengths of each organization. Your analyses are to be to the point and brief, easy to follow and understand. Report 2: a report on various disclosures in the 2014 American Apparel annual report. Please only refer to the 2014 annual report when answering questions for this part of the assignment. Questions will be posted weekly. You will be examining the financial statements (balance sheet, income statement) and the footnotes following those financial statements. You need not refer to any other material in the annual report. Your answers are to be typed, immediately below the question asked. They should be easy to understand and follow. They should not consist of numbers, alone. For example, if asked “What was the total current assets for American Apparel?” your answer should not simply be $198,990 thousand, instead your answer should be “Current assets for American Apparel for 2014 was $198,990 thousand, as reported on page 39.” Include the page number from which the information was obtained. Begin your paper with an executive summary of conclusions derived from Report 1. This executive summary is to be no longer than 1 page. Both reports are to be prepared in one, word document, and submitted in electronic format, through the Canvas Assignments function. Thanks. Acct 611, Annual Report Project, Winter 2018 Overall Instructions and Chapter 1 Report 1, Financial Analysis Questions For both businesses, for the years 2011 - 2014, perform a trend analysis on Sales, Cost of sales, and gross profit (if gross margin is not shown, it is sales – cost of sales). The trend analysis shows the percentage change from year to year of the items. The formula I use for yearly change is (y2 – y1)/y1. Compare American Apparel and Urban Outfitters performances based on this analysis. Report 2, Financial Report Questions (For this report, you will need the financial statements and footnotes following the financial statements, and nothing else, for American Apparel 2014 annual report). Only American Apparel and 2014, nothing else. Chapter 1 Questions 1. What are the beginning and ending page numbers beginning with the first financial statement shown and ending with the final footnote following the financial statements? 2. The purpose of footnotes is to explain and clarify items shown on the financial statements. Please list the number and name of each of the footnotes, as well as the page the footnote appears. For instance, the first footnote following the financial statements is usually named “Summary of significant accounting policies.”

as an attraction tool for the investors as it contains detailed appraisal of a company’s financial
health. This analysis will use various financial measurement tools such as the ratios, trends and
returns to measure the financial health of the two companies. The analysis will focus on three years
(2015, 2016 and 2017). This report will be prepared for the interest of financiers, the investors,
shareholders, and even the management team for better decision making in the future. The report
will be based on the three key financial statements; the statement of financial performance, the
statement of financial position and the statement of cash flows. One of the first aspects to review
when comparing financial status of the company is the profitability, sales, and gross margins.
Profitability ratios, which measures the company’s ability to generate a return on its resources, are
an important factor in determining a company’s financial stability. Therefore, this report will be a
key financial tool in the comparison. At the end of the comparison we will be able to determine
which company is better off in terms of financial health.
