1.2 THEORETICAL BACKGROUND OF STUDY INTRODUCTION: Financial statements are primarily prepared for decision-making. They play a dominant role in setting the framework of managerial decision. The published financial statements of business may be of considerable interest to present the same to their respective potential shareholders, managers, moneylenders, banks, financial institutions, trade organization and many others. MEANING OF FINANCIAL STATEMENT ANALYSIS DEFINATION: Financial analysis is the process of identifying the financial strengths and weakness of firm by properly establishing relationship between the items of the balance sheet and profit and loss account. The purpose of financial analysis is to diagnose the information contained in the financial statements so as to judge the profitability and financial soundness of the firm. A financial analyst, analyses the financial statements with various tools of analysis before commenting upon the financial position of the enterprises. Tools of financial statement analysis: 1. Comparative statements 2. Common size statements 3. Trend analysis 4. Fund flow analysis 5. Cash flow analysis 6. Ratio analysis 1. Comparative statements: The comparative balance sheet analysis is the study of trend of the same items, group of items and computed items in two or more balance sheet of the same business enterprise on different dates. The changes in periodic balance sheet items at the beginning and at the end of a period can be observed, which reflects the conduct of the business.

2. Common size statements: Common size financial statement facilitates both type of analysis, horizontal as well as vertical analysis, it not only compare across years but also each individual items of a group of assets and liabilities as related to the total of the group in respect of every year. It shows individual current assets as a percent of total current assets and so on. The main advantage of common size statements is that a comparison of the performance and financial condition in respect of different units of the same industry can also be done. 3. Trend analysis: The easiest way to evaluate the performance of the firm is to compare its present ratio with the past ratios. When financial ratios over a period of time are compared, it is known as time series or trend analysis, it gives an indication of a direction of change and reflects whether financial performance has improved or has deteriorated or has remained constant overtime. 4. Fund flow analysis: Fund flow statement is a method by which we study changes in the financial position of a business enterprise between the beginning and ending financial statements dates. It is a statement showing application of funds for a period of time, it is a complimentary statement to the income statement. Fund flow statement considers both capital and revenue items. 5. Cash flow analysis: Cash flow analysis is a statement of changes in the financial position of firm on cash basis. It summarizes the cause for the changes in the cash position of the business enterprises between dates of two balance sheets. Cash flow statement is a statement which describes the inflow and outflow of cash and cash equivalents. 6. Ratio analysis: Ratio analysis is a technique of calculation of number of accounting ratios from the data found in the financial statements. The comparison of these accounting ratios with those of the previous years or with those of the other concerns engaged in similar line of activities or with those of standard ratios and interpretation of its comparison helps to understand the standing and position of the firm.

FUND FLOW STATEMENT:Many changes take place in the assets, equities, revenues and expenses in the course of business operations. These changes in an asset or an equity account or in revenue or an expenses account over a period of time can be examined and presented in the form of a flow statement. The flow statement may, therefore be defined as a statement which explains increases or decreases in different related accounts for a specified period of time. These flow statements can be classified into four categories; 1. Income Statement 2. Funds Flow Statement 3. Statement of Changes in Financial Position 4. Cash Flow Statement

MEANING OF FUND FLOW STATEMENT: According to the Standard, the term fund generally refers to cash and cash equivalents, or to working capital. In a popular and generally accepted sense the term fund is used to denote the excess of current assets over current liabilities. Working Capital = Current Assets Current Liabilities The meaning of two terms current assets and current liabilities are: (1) Current Assets: The term Current Assets includes assets which are acquired with the intention of converting them into cash during the normal business operations of the company. E.g. - Debtors, cash, bank etc. (2) Current Liabilities: The term Current Liabilities is used principally to designate such obligations whose liquidation is reasonably expected to require the use of assets classified as current assets in the same balance sheet or the creation of other current liabilities or those expected to be satisfied within a relatively short period of time usually one year. The term current liabilities also includes amounts set apart or provided for any known liability of which the amount cannot be determined with substantial accuracy e.g., provision for taxation, pension etc. Meaning of Flow of Funds: The term Flow of Funds means Change in Funds or Change in working Capital. In other words, any increase or decrease in working capital means Flow of Funds. Fund flow statement means movement of working capital over a period of time. In other words, increase or decrease in working capital reflects flow of funds. When a transaction increases working capital, it is known as source of funds and when it decreases the working capital, it is known as application of funds. When a business transaction does not affect working capital, no flow of fund takes place. The following are the general rules: 1. There will be Flow of Funds if a transaction involves A. Current assets and fixed assets, e.g. Purchase of building for cash. B. Current and Capital, e.g. Issue of shares for cash C. Current and fixed liabilities e.g., Redemption of debentures in cash. D. Current liabilities and fixed liabilities e.g., creditors paid off in debentures. E. Current liabilities and capital e.g., creditors paid off in shares. F. Current liabilities and fixed assets e.g., building transfer to creditors in satisfaction of their claims. 2. There will be no flow of funds if transaction involves A. Current assets and current liabilities e.g., payment made to creditors. B. Fixes assets and fixed liabilities e.g., Building purchased and payment made in debentures. C. Fixed assets and capital e.g., Building purchased and payment made in shares. For example Machinery a/c Dr To share capital a/c (Machinery purchase in consideration of share) In the above transaction both accounts are non current accounts which do not at all affect current asset and current liability. Therefore working capital will remain unaffected i.e. there will be no flow of fund. When changes in one current account results in changes in other current account, it also does not affect working capital i.e. there is no flow of funds.

For example Cash a/c To debtor a/c (Cash received from debtor)

Dr

It represents an increase of cash in current asset account and decrease of debtor again a current asset account .thus there will be no net changes in the amount of working capital, although the composition of working capital will be affected.

In the above figure the dotted line displays there will be no flow of fund & the dark line displays the flow of fund. Need For Fund Flow Statement: The Funds Flow Statement is widely used by the financial analysis and credit granting institutions and financial managers in performance of their jobs. It has become a useful tool in their analytical kit. This is because the financial statements, i.e., Income Statement and the Balance Sheet have a limited role to perform. Income Statement measures flow restricted to transitions that pertain to rendering of goods and services to customers. The Balance Sheet is merely a static statement. It is a statement of assets and liabilities as on a particular date. Preparation of Fund Flow Statement: The changes which occurred in the current accounts as a result flow of fund are reflected in a statement known as schedule of changes in working capital .The similar changes in non current accounts are shown in Fund Flow Statement. Therefore following two statements under these techniques:A) Statement or Schedule of Changes in Working Capital. B) Statement of Sources and Uses of Funds or Funds Flow Statement. A. Schedule of Changes in Working Capital: It discloses the changes in individual item of current asset & current liabilities between two periods & there effect on working capital. Working capital will increase when there is an

increase in current asset and decrease in current liabilities, whereas, working capital will decrease when there is a decrease in current asset & increase in current liabilities. Net increase in working capital is treated as use of funds & the net decrease in working capital is treated as source of funds.

Limitations Of Fund Flow Statement: The fund flow statement suffers from the following limitations: 1.
