Additional Project Notes
 
The notes provided here are to help clarify some questions previous students have had or to remedy a problem I have seen often when grading the projects. If I update anything in this folder, I will post it in the announcements.
 
1) You do not have to paste the actual financial statements into the presentation. You should reference where you got them from in the appendix. You SHOULD provide a common-sized income statement that YOU prepared based on the financial statements. If you don’t know what a common-sized financial statement is after we cover chapter 3, you should go back and review the chapter again. Just to be clear, if you do not have a common size income statement in your presentation, you will lose 10%.
 
2) Please keep in mind that the outline is provided and that is the minimum topics I expect to see in the presentation. If a part is not there, it should only be because that does not pertain to your company (and you have verified that it does not get included with me).
 
3) You must provide the ratio CALCULATIONS. It can be included in the presentation or in the appendix but must be there or you will not receive credit for the ratios. DO NOT paste in ratios that you did not calculate yourself. The ratios should be what we covered in class with the exclusion of the fixed payment coverage ratio. Please do not do that one.
 

The presentation will include
 

1. Background and brief history of the company

2. Assessment of the current Marco Economic Environment
 
3. Industry Analysis

4. Analysis of Company’s Capital Structure
 
5. Debt Analysis (if applicable)
