The statements provide Results of business activity and not the Reasons.  To understand the reasons, we must look at relevant ratios.  These ratios are standard indications of business reasons and serve as the basis for key business decisions.  They are derived from a combination of calculations of components of the financial statements to indicate a unique and universally accepted metric or measurement.  We can glean relevant indications of the company’s success from these metrics.  They become the “language” through which we understand business activity and we use them to help understand and analyze financial statements and also compare one company to another or one financial period to another.

This Bank & Finance Regulatory Compliance webinar provides an in depth understanding of business and financial activity.  It converts the results indicated on financial statements to the reasons needed to improve profits and productivity.  They provide the windows into the company and reveal how best to understand and analyze business sand financial activity and make relevant business decisions.
