PART 1, COMPANY OVERVIEW:
At least one and half pages. Please pay attention to the logic and flow of your writing. Please do not just pile up sentences or paragraphs copied from other sources. You can use materials from other sources but please combine them into a logical piece. And do not forget to cite these sources to give them credit and then list them in the reference section of this report.
a. Brief description of the company (one paragraph, briefly summarizing the company’s business)
b. Company history (origin, major developments, etc.)
c. Organization (describe how the company is structured)
d. Main products and services (describe what the company sells; how it makes money)
e. Geographic area of operations (describe where the company sells and makes its products)
f. Recent developments (list recent major news stories, if any)
PART 2, FINANCIAL OVERVIEW: Use the most recent 5 years data
The years should be listed from the oldest to the most recent.
a. Sales and Income Record:
XXXXXXXXXXFiscal Years -------------
20xx 20xx 20xx 20xx 20xx-last
Sales XXXXXXXXXX____ ____ ____ ____ ____

COMMENTS: Comment on the trends you see in your numbers and on the graph.
Be sure to include comments! The numbers and the chart are meaningless by themselves. Comment on what you see.
b. Expense Distribution:
The info you got for this part could be messy because the income statement may mixed income with expenses or some other items.
XXXXXXXXXXFY 20xx – (most current year)
Major Expenses:
XXXXXXXXXX________
(list the major expense categories ________
from the latest income statement, _________
one may need to combine some _________
categories of expenses, XXXXXXXXXX_________
Do not include subtotals! XXXXXXXXXX_________
PIE CHART OF EXPENSES, FY 20xx

COMMENTS: Comment on the company’s expense distribution.
c. Assets Distribution:
For this part, the balance sheet has more items listed here. The last item above “other assets” should include all the rest of the assets consolidated together except the first four listed above.
The reason for consolidation is to be able to see the big/important items. If you list all the assets as in the balance sheet, it is hard to tell asset allocation. The smaller portion of the assets should be combined. However, if you find the last item has a large value, then that means you need to pick some larger items from there and listed them separately.
Year-end FY 20xx (most current year)
Assets:
Cash XXXXXXXXXX________
Accounts receivable XXXXXXXXXX________
Inventory XXXXXXXXXX________
Fixed Assets XXXXXXXXXX________
Other Assets XXXXXXXXXX________
Total:
PIE CHART OF ASSETS, Year-end FY 20xx
COMMENTS: Comment on the company’s asset distribution.
c. Capital Structure:
Again as in the asset distribution analysis, here you want to list only these four items by combining what you can see in the balance sheet.
The total of these four items here has to be the same as the total assets in section b because this part shows the liability + equity and Assets = Liability + Equity
(what you own = your debt + your own capital)
Year-end FY 20__
Capital Structure:
Current Liabilities XXXXXXXXXX________
Long-term & Other Liabilities ________
Preferred Stock (if any XXXXXXXXXX________
Common Equity ________
Total:
XXXXXXXXXXCAPITAL STRUCTURE PIE CHART, Year-end FY 20**
COMMENTS: Comment on the company’s capital structure.
Here one thing to pay attention to and you need to comment on is the debt to equity ratio.

PART 3, TREND ANALYSIS: Use the most recent 5 years
Think about the average percentage changes. Are they arithmetic means or geometric means?
For the graphs, think about what type of graphs are most appropriate, bar/column charts, line charts, or pie charts?
a. Sales and Income Record:

20xx 20xx 20xx 20xx 20xx-last
