Go to the CanGo Intranet and pull the financial statements. Use these to fill out the table found in Doc Sharing labeled Financial Analysis Project, and submit to the Individual Financial Analysis Dropbox in Week 3 after making sure that you have added your last name at the beginning of the file name for your file
As you complete your studies, the BUSN460 capstone course requires that you pull together all of your learning experiences to complete a business case. A part of that case requires you to review and analyze financial reports. The purpose of this refresher is to take you back to the basics and, within one hour, get you on the road to successfully completing the financial part of the case.
Instructions: In the following narrative we have embedded tutorials and videos for you to view. You need only read the narrative and click on the hyperlink, and you will be on your way. Make sure your speakers are on. If you feel uncomfortable with a given topic, feel free to revisit this refresher and watch the appropriate video.
There are six videos available to help you get up to speed on conducting a financial analysis: 1.) Introduction to Accounting 2.) Interrelationship of Financial Statements 3.) Current Ratio 4.) Inventory Turnover 5.) Debt Ratio 6.) Profitability
To start this activity, please view the Introduction To Accountingtutorial. It will help to answer the questions what is accounting, who developed it, how does it work, how does it fit into the business model, what are the rules and who generates them. You will learn about the basic accounting equation and some necessary terms. The financial reports that you will find in the case are also explained. (Transcript)
Now we move to the Interrelationships of Financial Statements tutorial to explore the Balance Sheet, Income Statement, and Statement of Cash Flows. These reports provide information about the financial position or health of the business, the success of business operations, and explains where the cash came in and where the cash went. Though this is a very basic look at the financial reports, it is a good starting place. To go beyond this tutorial, one could review the Annual Report of a business such as Wal-Mart available at the company’s web site and also download a copy of Wal-Mart’s 10k Report from the Securities & Exchange Commission as an exercise. The comparison of the two would provide an excellent view of the financial operation of the retail industry giant. (Transcript)
Prior to starting our videos on ratio analysis there are a few terms that one needs to know: - Liquidity is the ability of the company to meet its current debt obligations. - Solvency is the ability of the business to remain in business over a long period of time in terms of its ability to pay its long-term debts. - Profitability is the company’s ability to generate a profit.
The Current Ratio tutorial includes the explanation of three ratios. The Current Ratio, Working Capital computation and the execution of the Quick Ratio are demonstrated. These areLiquidity ratios. (Transcript)
Next, we will review the Inventory Turnover In this tutorial,Inventory Turnover Ratio and Accounts Receivable Turnoverare demonstrated. These are Liquidity ratios. (Transcript)
In the Debt Ratio tutorial, this Solvency ratio is demonstrated. (Transcript)
Moving on to the Profitabilitytutorial, Return on Net Sales andReturn on Assets are demonstrated. These are Profitabilityratios. (Transcript)
Hopefully you have found this one hour investment to be profitable!
IMPORTANT: Some ratios call for averages, (e.g. inventory turnover). Since CanGo has only one balance sheet available, you will not use an average, you will use the appropriate number from the most recent year’s financial statement. Also assume that there is no interest expense. Good luck!
Senior project busn 460 : Final Team Report and Presentation
Week 7 FINAL PRESENTATION (Using Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 and Web conferencing)
Each consulting team will submit to the CanGo management team a definitive presentation addressing CanGo’s notable challenges, the team’s recommendations, in priority sequence, with justifications, for how to resolve the challenges at CanGo. The teams will use the weekly video episodes to observe the challenges at CanGo, how the personnel are performing, seeing where there are gaps and/or how their performance as well as that of CanGo’s operations can be enhanced. The following are the specific features of the Week 7 Final Presentation:
The instructor will announce the date and time for the Final Presentation during Week 1. All teams will present in one session lasting approximately 3 hours in Week 7. Similar to any other Final Examination, it is up to you to be ready to present at the required date and time. Since you will have almost two months to arrange your schedules, you are expected to do what it takes to be available to present with your team and attend the entire session.

(Testing of microphone and speakers must be completed before the end of Week 6). Microphones are usually around $8-$10, and are available at Radio Shack, Best Buy, Circuit City, Wal-Mart, etc.
You must participate in a practice session in order to test your microphone at some point between Weeks 2 and 6.
Please enter the iConnect session at least 10 minutes prior to the start of your final session!
Each team will have 15 minutes to present the team’s Report.
When your presentation is concluded, other students and the instructor will ask questions about your challenges and conclusions (you may defer a specific question to a teammate who covered that particular element).
Due to the time constraints, the maximum number of slides is 15.

Text: Short bullet points are best (see example in Document Sharing).
The Final Presentation (Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 presentation) must be posted by the Week 7 Team Leader in Document Sharing > Final Reports and Presentations at least 12 hours prior to the schedule iConnect Final Presentation time. Do not use the Dropbox for submitting these files.
Week 8 FINAL REPORT (Using Microsoft Word 2010) Your team’s Final Report must support your PowerPoint 2010 presentation. The report will contain details of the challenges that CanGo faces, the team’s recommendations to resolve the challenges along with supporting plans and actions.
Use the Final Report Rubrics document (found in Document Sharing) as a guide for the expected content and sections for this report.
You may prepare other materials (Gantt charts, diagrams, etc.) to support your conclusions and recommendations. Paper length: 2000 – 2500 Words. Font face: Times New Roman Font size: 12 pt Line spacing: Double spaced Margins: Left, Right, Top and Bottom must not exceed 1 inch
Overview After reviewing the material one can see that CanGo is ready to move forward with upgrades technology. CanGo is looking to expand, but is still unsure of which way to go. Jack met with Warren and Debbie in which, he shared with them the ideas of an Automated Retrieval/Storage System (AS/RS). Jake explains to them that process flow charts give them the data to review. He states that they need to simplify, eliminate, automate, and integrate.
