The Essentials of Financial Analysis delivers practical, in-depth coverage on the key components of financial reporting, budgeting, and analysis to help you better relate to the numbers behind the business issues you face every day. By the time you turn the final page of this book, you will be able to command confident discussions on performance, investment, and other financial situations with members of your finance team and senior management.

This hands-on book helps you make better business decisions by showing you how to structure financial analysis, as well as:

  • Contribute to an organization’s success and guide others companywide to make better financial decisions
  • Reduce cost of capital and hurdle rates by selecting the financial markets, intermediaries, and instruments that work best for your company’s financing needs
  • Increase shareholder value by pursuing growth through capital investment, new products, mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, and other strategies

From the Back Cover:

The Essentials of Financial Analysis is a practical, in-depth survey of the key elements of financial reporting, budgeting, and analysis to help business managers with little or no background in finance relate to the numbers they deal with every day, boost their performance, and better lead their staff.

  • Implement strategic plans, operational budgets, and financial forecasts as competitive tools for direction setting, communication, and compensation
  • Make capital-investment decisions that contribute to a company’s success

The Essentials of Financial Analysis has all the critical information you need to ensure your decisions are grounded in sound financial judgment. Whether you’re presenting financial results, executing performance comparisons, allocating resources, or budgeting expenses, it helps you transform your know-how into real results.
