Info Trends estimates that to be more compared to the average number of photos taken across all digital cameras, tablets, and phones combined on a daily basis in 2017 (U.S Securities and Exchange Commission, 2018). Snap Inc.’s products include Camera, Friends Page, Discover, Snap Map, Memories, and Spectacles. The company’s major competitors include Facebook (WhatsApp & Instagram), Apple, Twitter, and Google (YouTube). Snapchat has a wide product base, which makes to have a wider range of other competitors in radio, television, and traditional printing as well.

SNAP INC 3 Common Income Statement The company has been experiencing a net loss that increased by $141,750 between 2015 and 2016, and by $2,930,423 between 2016 and 2017. Total operating expenses have had an upward trend between the three years increasing by 484,475 between years 2015 and 2016, and by $3,385,658 from 2016 to 2017. Common balance Sheet The balance sheet shows a significant increase in current assets between 2016 and 2017 ($1,186,809). There was also a slight major increase in current liabilities by 189,512 between 2016 and 2017. Stockholders’ equity increased by $1,698,774 between the two years. This information indicates that the company is not doing very well. Ratio Analysis There was a slight decline in current ratio between 2016 and 2017 of 1%; however, the current ratio is more than 1 indicating a healthy company. The current and quick ratio shows that the company has the ability to pay off debts when they become due. The financial Leverage Ratios indicate no cause of alarm considering that the long-term debt can be managed. The debt to equity ratio was 3.1% in 2016 and 2.8% in 2017. Profitability ratios indicate that the company is unable to generate profits. The company already faces net loses, which are increasing, hence unhealthy. Instead, the expenses, as well as other relevant costs, for running business are increasing hence the company is not making any profits. SNAP INC 4 Reference U.S Securities and Exchange Commission. (2018). Snap Inc. New York.
