1) Identify a company currently listed on a public exchange (eg., Nasdaq) or a business with a readily available set of financial statements, and include the set of the financial statements in the appendix of your assignment.
2) Develop a set of financial ratios from the aforementioned financial statements and provide an opinion on the financial health of the company. Highlight the major financial components of the entity and explain and/ or analyze areas that you believe it is performing well, if at all, and your interpretation/ rationale.
3) While not required, you may introduce assumptions if the information within the published financials are incomplete. The assumptions made should be identified and included in the written submission. Grading of the assignment will consider the plausibility, detail and basis of the assumptions.
4) Based on your analysis, highlight areas that you believe the entity may pursue in order to expand/ grow its operations. You may also consider areas that it may consider to minimize exposure to various risks. Grading will be based on the realism of your strategy. This is optional, though an opportunity to score additional marks.
