INTRODUCTION

INTRODUCTION
The financial statement provides the basic data for financial performance analysis. The

financial statements provide a summarized view of the financial position and operations of a
firm. Financial analysis (also referred to as financial statement analysis or accounting analysis)
refers to an assessment of the viability, stability and profitability of a business. The analyst first
identifies the information relevant to the decision under consideration from the total information
contained in the financial statements. Therefore, much can be learnt about a firm from a careful
examination of its financial statements as invaluable documents and performance reports.
The analysis of financial statements is an important aid to financial analysis. They
provide information on how the firm has performed in the past and what is its current financial
position. Financial analysis is the process of identifying the financial strengths and weakness of
the firm from the available accounting data and financial statements. The analysis is done by
establishing relationship between the different items of financial statements.
The focus of financial analysis is on key figures in the financial statements and the
significant relationship that exists between them. The analysis of financial statements is a process
of evaluating relationship between component parts of financial statements to obtain a better
understanding of the firms position and performance.
The first task of financial analyst is to select the information relevant to the decision
under consideration from the total information contained in the financial statement. The second
step involved in financial analysis is to arrange the information in a way to highlight significant

relationships. The final step is interpretation and drawing of inferences and conclusions. In brief,
financial analysis is the process of selection, relation, and evaluation.

INDUSTRIAL PROFILE

1.1.1 NON-BANKING FINANCIAL COMPANIES (NBFCS)


Non-bank financial companies (NBFCs) are financial institutions that provide
banking services without meeting the legal definition of a bank, i.e. one that does not hold a
banking license. Operations are, regardless of this, still exercised under bank regulation.
According to Reserve Bank Amendment of Act 1997, A Non-Banding Financial Company
(NBFCs) means,

A financial institution which is a company


A non-banking institution which is a company which has its principal business receiving
of deposits under any scheme of arrangement or in any other manner or lending in any
manner

The non-banking financial sector in India has tremendous growth in recent years. NBFCs
attracted a large number of small investors since the rate of return on deposits with them was
relatively high. NBFCs are quite flexible sectors like equipment leasing, hire-purchase, housing
finance, consumer finance and so on, where gaps between the demand and supply of funds have
been high. The growth in number of NBFCs was facilitated by the case of entry, limited fixed
assets and absence of any need to hold inventories.
1.1.2

CURRENT SCENARIO OF NBFCS

The base of todays feebleness of Non-Banking Finance Companies can perhaps be


traced back to early nineties. The buoyant capital market, in the first flush liberalization
welcomed every issue with huge premiums and massive over subscription. This was the signal
for several unscrupulous promoters to set up high profile finance companies and raise money
from both the capital markets and through public deposits.
The Reserve Bank of India for its past, progressively relaxed its regulatory hold over
the industry and made it possible for the companies with little financial strength and even fewer
scrupulous to raise large amounts of money from an unsuspecting public. Hardly anyone knew
or questioned how these moneys were deployed. Soon afterward, the stock market scam broke
claiming its first victim from the non-banking finance companies sector. With the capital market
in disarray, it was no longer possible for continue of fund flow, from investors who had burnt
their fingers in the stock markets. It was thus convenient fresh deposits. In July1996, the RBI,
perhaps the most sweeping changes in the non-banking finance companies regulation, virtually
pulled out all the stock, enabling companies to raise deposits with minimum number and more
significantly, removed the ceiling on interest rate.
At the point, when the government was faced with grim situation and responding to the
plea of the industry, the government set up a special task force headed by Mr. C.M. Vasudev to
recommend the steps for the orderly growth of finance companies while keeping investor
protection as its key priority. The committee in its final report recognized the important role
played by these companies and warned against the tendencies to tar all the companies with the
same brush. The silent recommendations of the Vasudev committee were

Review of minimum capital requirement of Rs. 25lakhs for registration purposes


Higher capital adequacy ratio for non-banking finance companies seeking public deposits

without credit rating


Preview of prudential norms with ceiling for exposure to real estate and capital markets
Differential ceiling on public deposit acceptance for companies with and without credit

ratings
A separate instrument to regulate and supervise non-banking finance companies.

necessary to have a regulatory framework for NBFCs. RBI came out with set of guidelines for
NBFCs specifically aimed at protecting the depositors.

1996, NBFCs were divided into two classes,

LITERATURE
REVIEW

LITERATURE REVIEW

3.1 REVIEW OF LITERATURE


Literature Review was done by referring previous studies, articles and books to know
the areas of study and analyze the gap or study not done so far. There are various studies were
conducted relating to operational performance of the company from which most relevant
literatures were reviewed.
18

Kennedy and Muller (1999), has explained that The analysis and interpretation of financial
statements are an attempt to determine the significance and meaning of financial statements data
so that the forecast may be made of the prospects for future earnings, ability to pay interest and
debt maturines (both current and long term) and profitability and sound dividend policy.
T.S.Reddy and Y. Hari Prasad Reddy (2009), have stated that The statement disclosing status
of investments is known as balance sheet and the statement showing the result is known as profit
and loss account
Peeler J. Patsula (2006), he define that a sound business analysis tells others a lot about good
sense and understanding of the difficulties that a company will face. We have to make sure that
people know exactly how we arrived to the final financial positions. We have to show the
calculation but we have to avoid anything that is too mathematical. A business performance
analysis indicates the further growth and the expansion. It gives a physiological advantage to the
employees and also a planning advantage.
I.M.Pandey (2007), had stated that the financial statements contain information about the
financial consequences and sources and uses of financial resources, one should be able to say
whether the financial condition of a firm is good or bad; whether it is improving or deteriorating.
One can relate the financial variables given in financial statements in a meaningful way which
will suggest the actions which one may have to initiate to improve the firms financial condition.
Chidambaram Rameshkumar & Dr. N. Anbumani (2006), he argue that Ratio Analysis
enables the business owner/manager to spot trends in a business and to compare its performance
and condition with the average performance of similar businesses in the same
industry. To do this compare your ratios with the average of businesses similar to yours and
compare your own ratios for several successive years, watching especially for any unfavorable
trends that may be starting. Ratio analysis may provide the all-important early warning
indications that allow you to solve your business problems before your business is destroyed by
them.

19

Jae K.Shim & Joel G.Siegel (1999), had explained that the financial statement of an enterprise
present the raw data of its assets, liabilities and equities in the balance sheet and its revenue and
expenses in the income statement. Without subjecting these to data analysis, many fallacious
conclusions might be drawn concerning the financial condition of the enterprise. Financial
statement analysis is undertaken by creditors, investors and other financial statement users in
order to determine the credit worthiness and earning potential of an entity.
Susan Ward (2008), emphasis that financial analysis using ratios between key values help
investors cope with the massive amount of numbers in company financial statements. For
example, they can compute the percentage of net profit a company is generating on the funds it
has deployed. All other things remaining the same, a company that earns a higher percentage of
profit compared to other companies is a better investment option.
M Y Khan & P K Jain (2011), have explained that the Financial statements provide a
summarized view of the financial position and operations of a firm. Therefore, much can be
learnt about a firm from a careful examination of its financial statements as invaluable
documents / performance reports. The analysis of financial statements is, thus, an important aid
to financial analysis.
Elizabeth Duncan and Elliott (2004), had stated that the paper in the title of efficiency,
customer service and financing performance among Australian financial institutions showed that
all financial performance measures as interest margin, return on assets, and capital adequacy are
positively correlated with customer service quality scores.
Jonas Elmerraji (2005), tries to say that ratios can be an invaluable tool for making an
investment decision. Even so, many new investors would rather leave their decisions to fate than
try to deal with the intimidation of financial ratios. The truth is that ratios aren't that intimidating,
even if you don't have a degree in business or finance. Using ratios to make informed decisions
about an investment makes a lot of sense, once you know how use them.
Carlos Correia (2007), had explained that any analysis of the firm, whether by management,
investors, or other interested parties, must include an examination of the companys financial
data. The most obvious and readily available source of this information is the firms annual
20

report. The financial statements shall, in conformity with generally accepted accounting practice,
fairly present the state of the affairs of the company and the results of operations for the financial
year.
Greninger et al.(1996), identified and refined financial ratios using a Delphi study in the areas
of liquidity, savings, asset allocation, inflation protection, tax burden, housing expenses and,
insolvency. Based on the Delphi findings, they proposed a profile of financial well-being for the
typical family and individual.
Rachchh Minaxi A (2011), have suggested that the financial statement analysis involves
analyzing the financial statements to extract information that can facilitate decision making. It is
the process of evaluating the relationship between component parts of the financial statements to
obtain a better understanding of an entitys position and performance.
Salmi, T. and T. Martikainen (1994), in his "A review of the theoretical and empirical basis of
financial ratio analysis", has suggested that A systematic framework of financial statement
analysis along with the observed separate research trends might be useful for furthering the
development of research. If the research results in financial ratio analysis are to be useful for the
decision makers, the results must be theoretically consistent and empirically generalizable.
John J.Wild, K.R.Subramanyam & Robert F.Halsey (2006), have said that the financial
statement analysis is the application of analytical tools and techniques to general-purpose
financial statements and related data to derive estimates and inferences useful in business
analysis. Financial statement analysis reduces reliance on hunches, guesses, and intuition for
business decisions. It decreases the uncertainty of business analysis.

current assets flow. The company has been suggested to reduce the expenditure as it increases
every year. Decrease in expenses will increase the profitability.

wants to utilize its working capital efficiently that is the excess current assets should be adjusted
according to current scenario. Though the net profit shows it is increased but we found that the

to increase the actual profit.
The debt equity ratio of the company is also increasing. The company should focus
on the debt and long term funds which are utilized in the company. The excess cash flow should
or can be utilized in any new ventures if the company wishes to do.
