The Balance Sheet follows an equation. In this section we are going to share with you this equation and we will be building this up together, one step at a time.
This module introduces the basic definition of assets and breaks down the assets in the various types.
This module introduces a common definition of liabilities.
This module introduces a common definition of what constitutes owner's equity, or as it is also known, shareholder's equity.
The Balance Sheet is an important tool to gain insight into a company and its operations. The Balance Sheet is like a photo at a single point in time of a company's assets, liabilities and owner's equity.
In this module you will practice what you have learned in Section 2 on how to build the net assets side of the Balance Sheet.
In this module you will practice what you have learned in Section 2 on how to build the liabilities side of the Balance Sheet.
In this module you will practice what you have learned in Section 2 on how to build the owner's (shareholder's) equity side of the Balance Sheet.
In this section we will learn how the Balance Sheet can enable us to find out how much a company is worth, how healthy it is and in case of a public listed company whether the price of the shares reflect these factors.
We calculate solvency ratios to see whether a company has enough cash, assets and low debt to continue operations without running into financial trouble.
We use activity ratios to measure how well the management team are able to convert the business assets into cash or sales. By doing so we will see how efficient and well run a company really is.
We use capital structure ratios to analyse a company’s capital structure, mainly its debt and equity. The following ratios will show you how much a company is using debt to run the business.
We use valuation structure ratios to assess the overall value of a company, including the net asset value per shares in circulation.
This lecture introduces the other two documents, the Profit & Loss Account and the Cashflow Statement, that together with the Balance Sheet, make up the financial statements of a company.
