Financial Statements and Analysis is written in a non-technical language and provides explanation and insight to each and every figure that appears in financial statements. The unique feature of the book is that all the three principal financial statements, namely, Balance Sheet, Statement of Profit, and Cash Flow Statement are thoroughly explained using the financial statements of Asian Paints Ltd. The last part of the book presents a framework through which the readers can view the financial health of any business. The book shows interconnection between the four drivers of profitability—asset management, cost management, leverage management, and tax management—and how they jointly improve the profitability of the company.

The book is intended to provide a feeling of completeness to the readers in their understanding of financial statements. Even for those from a non-accounting background, this simple and easily readable text helps to read and understand financial statements and to be able to evaluate the financial health of a company. The book is relevant for non-financial managers, entrepreneurs, and the students of accounting courses from different backgrounds. It is also relevant for those pursuing courses on valuation, mergers and acquisition, and specialized course on Financial Statement Analysis.



Features : A comprehensive book on financial statements with a focus on understanding and interpreting rather than preparing financial statements. Practical, insightful, and easy-to-read text. Chapter-end problems are carefully constructed to address different issues. Chapter-end real-life cases provide an opportunity for the students to learn and analyze. Allows students and managers to create EXCEL templates to standardize the analysis part and spend more time on analysis than on computation. Additional instructor resources to make the learning process easier and to further improve it.
