This assignment is a continuation of the Cookie Creations case study.
For this assignment, you will apply what you have learned from Chapter 18 as an introduction to the financial analysis. This assignment will allow you to practice what you have learned so far.
Natalie and Curtis have comparative balance sheets and income statements for Cookie & Coffee Creations, Inc. They have been told that they can use these financial statements to prepare horizontal and vertical analyses, to calculate financial ratios, to analyze how their business is doing, and to make some decisions they have been considering. Below, you are provided with the balance sheet and income statement of Cookie & Coffee Creations Inc. for its first year of operations; the year ended October 31, 2021. Review the calculations below, and then review the additional case information to calculate the ratios.
Review the additional case information below.
Natalie and Curtis are thinking about borrowing an additional $20,000 to buy more equipment. The loan would be repaid over a 4-year period. The terms of the loan provide for equal semi-annual installment payments of $2,500 on May 1 and November 1 of each year, plus interest of 5% on the outstanding balance. Dividends on preferred stock were $1,400. Since this is the first year of operations and the beginning balances are zero, use the ending balance as the average balance where appropriate.
Complete the tasks listed below.
Complete your calculations for item “a” in either an Excel spreadsheet or a Word document. If you complete item “a” in an Excel spreadsheet, complete items “b–d” in a Word document, and submit the Excel spreadsheet and the Word document in Blackboard. If you complete items “a–d” in a Word document, submit your calculations to item “a” and your responses for items “b–d” in a single Word document in Blackboard. Your total submission should be a minimum of two pages in length, including your calculations. Include at least two references.
