Changes to financial reporting can also change how you read financial statements.
In a world where some companies report results using International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), others report using U.S. GAAP, and still others report using Accounting Standards for Private Enterprises (ASPE), analyzing financial statements is becoming more and more challenging.
Financial statements are also influenced by managerial judgment, and it is difficult to assess the financial health of an organization or compare companies based on numbers alone.
This webcast focuses on more advanced tools for financial statement analysis, particularly the lesser-known techniques that are becoming increasingly important in our first year of IFRS and ASPE reporting.
You'll learn when to use straightforward financial ratio analysis, as well as what adjustments to make prior to the use of ratios so you can apply financial analysis techniques effectively.
You'll also explore other critical measures that must be considered to arrive at a detailed assessment of a company’s financial health.
