Recorded Session
90 Minutes


    This training program will explore the vital world of advanced financial statement analysis. This session will include a review of the four financial statements and a five-step analysis model including liquidity, activity, leverage, operating performance, and cash flow. It will also review the Z-score (bankruptcy predictor) and the sustainable growth models. The webinar is a must for all commercial lenders and credit administrators.

Learning Objectives

    • An introduction to a five-part financial statement analysis model which will include:
    • Liquidity: How to determine the true cash position of a company by eliminating certain current asset accounts from the working capital, current ratio, and quick ratio calculations
    • Activity: How to correctly interpret a company's accounts receivable, accounts payable, and inventory turnover? The turnover calculations will then be used to determine a company's cash conversion cycle
    • Leverage: How to calculate the debt versus equity position of a business and adjust the calculation through the use of a subordination agreement
    • Operating Performance: How to gauge a company's true profitability and the difference between accrual versus cash basis income statements
    • Cash Flow: calculate, interpret, and apply cash flow models including traditional EBITDA, fixed-charge coverage, free cash flow (FCF), cash basis cash flow, and uniform credit analysis cash flow (UCA)
    • A review of related topics of the Z-score (bankruptcy predictor) and the sustainable growth models
    • Case studies to illustrate the five-part analysis model and the correct interpretation of the financial statements
