This module studies financial statements which represent a historical quantitative summary of a company’s operations and activities. As we learned in module 1, financial statements are primarily used by external stakeholders, such as banks and stockholders, to provide useful information on the health and future of a company. However, many large companies have failed, even though they appeared profitable on paper. What can we learn about the health of a company using ratio analysis? Garrison, Noreen, and Brewer (2018) state, “Ratios should not be viewed as an end, but rather as a starting point” (p. 726). What is meant by that?
In a 2-3 page APA style paper, discuss the limits of financial statement analysis and how managers’ decisions can manipulate ratios for their own personal gain. To make this more interesting, research the top accounting scandals and determine how the managers of these firms played a role… and where are they now? What can you do as a manager to help make sure this doesn’t happen to your company?

Many new businesses intentionally operate in the red during their inaugural year, offering lower initial pricing while building a strong customer base. Examine the business model, performance, and pricing structure for an existing business that started operations within the last 24 months. Using contribution margin and variable costing, analyze their ability to break even. Will they survive in the long term?

Imagine that the CFO of your manufacturing company is seeking your help regarding a decision to switch to an Activity Based Costing system from their traditional Absorption Costing system due to numerous complaints from managers about inaccurate product costs. He has invited you to attend the next executive management meeting to unpack the differences between these two costing systems so they can make an informed decision.
Create an original presentation comparing these two costing methods. He has asked you to keep it brief, professional, and easy to understand. He wants to see which costs will be affected, but he does not want to see too many confusing numbers. Make it interesting and easy to understand. Without the full support of top management, the CFO says this new costing method will be doomed to fail.
Your presentation should be recorded as though you are in the board room presenting–do not just read the slides! Include at least one costing example for each method. Clearly state your recommended method in your presentation. Microsoft PowerPoint has excellent design templates to make a professional presentation. Your presentation should include either notes of what you would say in a live presentation, or recorded narration. Here are some options for creating a narrated presentation.
