Module 2 Introducing the Fin Statements, and Transaction analysis. Start by looking at

Flow of Costs

And what are the four main financial statements? Balance Sheet Income Statement Statement of Stockholders Equity Statement of Cash flows

Balance Sheet Mirrors the Accounting Equation

Assets = Liabilities + Equity Uses of funds = Sources of funds Assets are listed in order of liquidity Liabilities are listed in order of maturity Equity consists of Contributed Capital and Retained Earnings

AssetsTo be reported on a balance sheet, an asset must 1. Be owned (or controlled) by the company 2. Must possess expected future economic benefits

Assets are listed in order of liquidity Current assets comprise assets that can be converted to cash within a year LongLong-term assets cannot be easily converted to cash within a year.

Examples of Current Assets Cash Cashcurrency, bank deposits, and investments with an original maturity of 90 days or less (called cash equivalents); Marketable securities securitiesshort-term investments that can be quickly sold to raise cash; Accounts receivable, net netamounts due to the company from customers arising from the sale of products and services on credit (net refers to uncollectible accounts explained in Module 6); Inventory Inventorygoods purchased or produced for sale to customers; Prepaid expenses expensescosts paid in advance for rent, insurance, advertising or other services.

Examples of Long-term Assets Long Property, plant and equipment (PPE), netland, net factory buildings, warehouses, office buildings, machinery, motor vehicles, office equipment and other items used in operating activities (net refers to subtraction of accumulated depreciation, the portion of the assets cost that has been transferred from the balance sheet to the income statement, which is explained in Module 6); Long-term investmentsinvestments that the Longinvestments company does not intend to sell in the near future; Intangible and other assetsassets without physical assets substance, including patents, trademarks, franchise rights, goodwill and other costs the company incurred that provide future benefits.

Assets are Reported at Historical Cost Historical Cost is Objective Verifiable

Relevance vs. Reliability Only include items that can be reliably measured. Considerable amount of assets may not be reflected on a balance sheet Strong management team, a well-designed wellsupply chain, or superior technology.

Knowledge Based Assets are not Reflected on the Balance Sheet NOTE: While resources expended for research NOTE: and development reflect and economic asset, they generally are expensed as incurred. INSIGHT: Pharmaceutical firms do not have INSIGHT: assets reflecting the full amount of money that they have spent developing drugs. These amounts, for the most part, have been expensed in the past and serve to reduce retained earnings. Internally developed trade marks are also economic assets, but may not show up on the balance sheet. [The purchase of externally developed trademarks are treated as assets.]

Examples of Current Liabilities Accounts payable payableamounts owed to suppliers for goods and services purchased on credit. Accrued liabilities liabilitiesobligations for expenses that have been incurred but not yet paid; examples are accrued wages payable (wages earned by employees but not yet paid), accrued interest payable (interest that is owing but has not been paid), and accrued income taxes (taxes due). Unearned revenues revenuesobligations created when the company accepts payment in advance for goods or services it will deliver in the future; also called advances from customers, customer deposits, or deferred revenues. Short-term notes payableshort-term debt payable to banks or Shortpayable other creditors. Current maturities of long-term debtprincipal portion of longlongdebt term debt that is due to be paid within one year. NET WORKING CAPITAL = CURRENT ASSETS CURRENT LIAB

Operating cycle Cash purchases of (on acct??) Inventory sales (acct receivable) Collect and pay cash

Examples of Noncurrent Liabilities Long-term debtamounts borrowed from creditors Longthat are scheduled to be repaid more than one year in the future; any portion of long-term debt that is due within one year is reclassified as a current liability called current maturities of long-term debt. Long-term debt includes bonds, mortgages, and other long-term loans.

Other long-term liabilitiesvarious obligations, such longas pension liabilities and long-term tax liabilities, that will be settled a year or more into the future. We discuss these items in later modules.

EquityEquity consists of: Contributed Capital (cash raised from the issuance of shares) Earned Capital (retained earnings). Retained Earnings is updated each period as follows:

Examples of Equity Accounts Common stockpar value received from the original sale ofcommon stock to investors.

Preferred stockvalue received from the original sale ofpreferred stock to investors; preferred stock has fewer ownership rights compared to common stock.

Additional paid-in capitalamounts received from the paidoriginal sale of stock to investors in addition to the par value of common stock.

Treasury stockamount the company paid to reacquire itscommon stock from shareholders.

Retained earningsaccumulated net income (profit) that hasnot been distributed to stockholders as dividends.

Accumulated other comprehensive income or lossaccumulated changes in equity that are not reported in the income statement (explained in Module 9).

Income Statement

When are Revenues and Expenses Recognized? Revenue Recognition Principle recognize revenues when earned Matching Principlerecognize expenses when incurred.

Profit vs. Cash Net Income does not necessarily correspond to a net cash flow. A firm could have good income but poor cash flow or vice versa (i.e., there are two dimensions to consider). We have previously summarized the mechanics of the balance sheet with the expanded accounting equation:

Permanent: Operating vs. Nonoperating and Transitory Income itemsPermanent Operating expenses are the usual and customary costs that a company incurs to support its main business activities Nonoperating expenses relate to the companys financing and investing activities Transitory Discontinued operations Gains or losses (and net income or loss) from business segments that are being sold or have been sold in the current period. Extraordinary items Gains or losses from events that are both unusual and infrequent.

Accrual AccountingAccrual accounting refers to the recognition of revenue when earned (even if not received in cash) and the matching of expenses when incurred (even if not paid in cash).

Statement of Stockholders Equity Statement of Equity is a reconciliation of the beginning and ending balances of stockholders equity accounts. Main equity categories are: Contributed capital Retained earnings (including Other Comprehensive Income or OCI) Treasury stock

Statement of Cash Flows Statement of cash flows (SCF) reports cash inflows and outflows Cash flows are reported based on the three business activities of a company: Cash flows from operating activities - Cash flows from the companys transactions and events that relate to its operations. Cash flows from investing activities - Cash flows from acquisitions and divestitures of investments and longlong-term assets. Cash flows from financing activities- Cash flows activitiesfrom issuances of and payments toward borrowings and equity.

Relation of SCF to Income Statement and Balance Sheet

General Coding of Balance sheet Changes

Articulation of Financial Statements Financial statements are linked within and across time they articulate. articulate. Balance sheet and income statement are linked via retained earnings.

Recording transactions Pay $100 Wages in Cash

Cash assets are reduced by $100, and wage expense of $100 is reflected in the income statement, which reduces income and retained earnings by that amount. All transactions incurred by the company during the accounting period are recorded similarly.
