Overview

A valuable resource for any business professional, this book shows how performance metrics available from the financial statements, shareholder value creation, and the firm's market value are all tied together. It also explores earnings management, including the use of discretion by management in the preparation of the financial statements to cast a favorable picture of the financial performance and condition of the firm. Readers will then delve more deeply into the methods used to account for operating, investing, and financing transactions.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The fifth edition of this text on introductory financial reporting and analysis contains new elements designed to enhance the text's economic decision-making theme, and updated real-world references, many on the Internet-based economy. For this edition, questions are placed within chapters rather than at the end, and all questions and exercises refer to real-world companies and events. Sections cover financial accounting and its economic contact, use of financial statements, assets, liabilities and stockholders' equity, and income and cash flows. Pratt teaches accounting and chairs the Department of Accounting and Information Systems at Indiana University. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
