Course Name- Managerial Finance (BBA 223)

Chapter Name- Financial Statements and Ratio Analysis

Company Name- Olympic Industries and Bangas Ltd.

  • Objectives:
  1. To know about the two companies by making a thorough analysis of the two company’s financial statements over the last 3 years through ratio analysis and analysis of major components of the balance sheet trying to identify the actual state of the two companies since its enlistment in Dhaka Stock Exchange (DSE).
  2. To compare Bangas’s financial status with one of its rival firm (Olympic Industries) through ratio analysis.
  3. To make a recommendation about the companies.

  • Utility:

We have tried our best to deduce the financial position of Bangas and Olympic by the virtues of ratio Analysis. We have basically completed the five core sectors of Ratio Analysis:

  1. Profitability ratios
  2. Liquidity Ratios
  3. Activity Ratios
  4. Market Ratios
  5. Debt Ratio

We hope that our analysis of three consecutive years’ (2014, 2015 and 2016) Ratio Analysis will help us to better understand the current and future potentials of the company.

  • Methodology:
  1. For our primary data, we took help of our reference text book, class lectures and also the annual financial reports of the two companies.
  1. For our secondary data, we consulted with various websites and informative sites on the internet. All of which is cited at the end part of this report, in the reference section, to avoid plagiarism.
  1. Our analysis, especially with the ratio part considered both time series and cross section.
  • Limitations:

Time was a very big constraint during the process of preparation of this report. As the report had been prepared over a limited time period, time had to be budgeted and scheduled very calculatedly. There was very little time that could be used as lagging, in case something fell behind schedule. Adding up to that extent, the unavailability of all the annual financial reports of the companies had been a bottle neck throughout the entire preparation of the report. Another matter of concern was that, the report considers data only from the last three financial years. A report with analysis of the last ten to fifteen years may have been more precise and accurate. Moreover, many companies practice ambiguous accounting practices to get rid of tax that dilute the actual scenario. Also, these companies try to make their performance much more lucrative to the Shareholders by means of unethical practice which are completely unnoticeable to general public. Such practice if had taken place might have diluted our findings which are based on the information available in the “Annual Reports”.
