Corporate Financial Analysis with Microsoft®

Excel® visualizes spreadsheets as an effective

management tool both for financial analysis

and for coordinating its results and actions

with marketing, sales, production and service

Taking an integrative view that promotes

teamwork across corporate functions and

responsibilities, the book contains dozens of

charts, diagrams, and actual Excel® screenshots

to reinforce the practical applications of

every topic it covers. The first two sections—

Financial Statements and Cash Budgeting—

explain how to use spreadsheets for:

  • Preparing income statements,

    balance sheets, and cash

    flow statements

  • Performing vertical and

    horizontal analyses of

    financial statements

  • Determining financial ratios

    and analyzing their trends

    and significance

  • Combining quantitative and

    judgmental techniques to improve

    forecasts of sales revenues and

    customer demands

  • Calculating and applying the

    time value of money

  • Managing inventories,

    safety stocks, and the

    allocation of resources

The third and final section—Capital Budgeting—

covers capital structure, the cost of

capital, and leverage; the basics of capital

budgeting, including taxes and depreciation;

applications, such as new facilities, equipment

replacement, process improvement, leasing

versus buying, and nonresidential real estate;

and risk analysis of capital budgets and the

potential impacts of unforeseen events.
