Financial Statement Analysis - cash flow analysis II

CFA Level I

answered on 22-Mar-24 11:49

Time stamp pertaining to the previous query ( why is expense as shown in income statement not considered while adjusting for non cash and non operating expenses) is at 09:50

latest answer

We have adjusted for non-cash items from P&L in the cash flow statement such as Depreciation. The other items under the expenses such as COGS, wages and interest are treated as operating cash items, therefore not reversed. With respect to interest expenses, there is a slight difference in treatment under IFRS and US GAAP. While IFRS has more flexibility to classify interest paid as either a operating activity or financing activity, US GAAP specify it to be classified as an operating activity. The example that is being discussed in the video is pertaining to US company, therefore we have not added back interest costs.

Module 30.1 Example: Revenue recognition 1.performance Obligations

latest answer

total revenue from a project is say 10 Mio, the project is spread over 2-3 years. So cumulative revenue over 2-3 years is 10 mio So based on construction, i.e % of completion total project revenues and costs are recognized. Say project is 50% complete in yr 1 then 50% cost and revenue are recognized. In year 2 if completion rate is 75% then cumulative revenue and cost for year 2 is 75% If one has to get revenue for the year 2 then one has to subtract cumulative revenue for 2 years minus revenue recognized in year 1

Examples : impact of leverage on roe Impact of a decrease in revenues Video Details Course: Corporate issuers - CFA Level 1 Module: Corporate Issuers Section: 5.Stakeholder Management

latest answer

First one When instead of buying a machine at full equity , it is purchased at 50:50 DE, then ROE increase because Debt return is fixed at a lower rate and as profits increase, all teh increase in profit goes to equity because of which ROE increases Second one On the flip side, if profits decrease, most of the profit does towards paying interest on debt because of which very little is left for Equity holders because of which ROE decreases. Have you understood both the above points i am making above or not? If not let me know if i can call you at 9.30 Am and explain this in detail
