The Truth is in the Numbers – Financial Statement Analysis for Valuation Purposes

Financial statement analysis is a fundamental step in the business valuation process. Developing an understanding of the historical (and prospective) financial position and operating results of the subject company within the context of actual (and expected) industry and economic conditions provides the perspective required to establish a reasonable economic outlook for the subject company. This economic outlook ultimately will serve as the foundation for the valuation of the subject company.
