Project Assignment 1

  

Each student will individually research a company and analyze the Items for Analysis listed below. Select the same item so you can compare your companies. 
Items for Analysis:
Criteria for Requirement 1, Part 1 Submission 
A. Review your company’s current and long-term liabilities section of the most recently published balance sheet. Explain the details of the current and long-term debt based on the disclosures found in the financial statements. Do not complete a ratio analysis. Instead, focus on the details in the notes and determine how well the company presented the information to an informed reader. What did the company provide about its debts in the notes, and why is that information important? How does each company comply with the rules as provided in the FASB Codification?
B. Review your company’s stockholders’ equity section of the balance sheet. Explain the details of the stock transactions, including treasury stock (if applicable) or stock compensation, based on the disclosures found in the financial statements. Do not complete a ratio analysis. Instead, focus on the details in the notes and determine how well the company presented the information to an informed reader. What did the company provide about its equity in the notes and why is that information important? How does each company comply with the rules as provided in the FASB Codification?
Project Requirements
The first submission is a draft of your findings for item above. The first portion of the assignment submission should include:
· An introductory paragraph about the industry in which your companies compete. Provide this summary in approximately 200-250 words. Note – only one industry overview is provided, not one per company.
· Body of the paper consisting of a comparative analysis of Item A or B for each company as well as an application of the FASB Codification to “prove” the items are reported properly by your project companies. The discussion for each company should be approximately 250 words. For example, if there are four students per group, the total for all four companies would be 1,000 words.
