9780136501282: Interpreting Company Reports and Accounts

The revision of this highly practical and renowned text on the analysis and interpretation of published reports and accounts is the most extensive and innovative of any previous edition, strengthening its academic course appeal. Beyond updating the text and its wealth of company illustrations and extracts for all regulatory developments, the full report and accounts of a quoted company are now included within the text, along with a variety of end-of-chapter assessment material and selected solutions. Other new features include a bound-in 'electronic workbook' to assist analysis and question practice, and a supporting Teacher's Manual.

Press Comments

"

That it is known as ‘ The Analysts Bible’ says much about this book. It shows how to crunch the numbers and what to look for buried in the notes to the accounts and suggests how to read the director’s reports for the signs of business turning sour."

                                                                                         Investors Chronicle

" The book is wholly successful in its aim of providing a guide for ‘anybody with a reasonably enquiring mind’ on how to take to pieces a set of company reports."

                                                                                              Financial Times

"An interesting guideline on how to interpret the usual broad and platitudinous statements made by many company chairmen is to be found in this excellent book."

                                                                 Jim Slater Investment Made Easy

“If I wanted to give my mother a book to help her make sense of company accounts I could hardly think of a better book. For business people or potential investors … I would say this book is ideal.”

Michael Thompson: University of Ulster

 

Interpreting Company Reports and Accounts guides the reader through the conventions and complexities of company accounts, explaining how to assess the financial and trading position of a company from year to year, how to spot undue risk taking and ‘‘cosmetic accounting’’ and where to look for clues on the quality of management. 

Packed with interesting real world examples, this is a highly practical book which shows readers how to analyse company reports and accounts, both qualitatively and quantitatively. The analysis is illustrated with over 200 extracts/examples from published accounts, ranging from BP and DIAGEO down to smaller companies on AIM.
