How it works
All you need is to enter financial data of the company you intend to assess, classified according to IFRS or US GAAP rules. It is specifically required:
Statement of Financial Position (Balance Sheet);
Statement of Comprehensive Income (Income Statement)
Assets and Liabilities in the Balance Sheet have to be arranged according to a current/non-current classification.
Income Statement is supposed to report “Cost of Goods Sold” separately from any other cost (such as administration or distribution costs).
Some optional data are also required:
Number of employees.
Amortization and depreciation expense, essential to calculate EBITDA.
All data are required for at least 2 fiscal years (up to a maximum of 5).
Reclassification of Balance Sheet:
Improves the capability to provide information to investors;
lets you immediately figure out the whole picture.
EBIT and EBITDA.
Current Assets are classified into the following categories:
Trade and Other Current Receivables (concerning the commercial area)
Other Current Assets (a sum of Current Tax Assets, Biological Assets, Other Current Financial Assets, Other Current Non-financial Assets, Assets Held for Sale) Cash and Cash Equivalents
The application clearly isolates financial debt from trade liabilities, categorizing it into long- and short-term debt. This allows to calculate fundamental ratios as Debt to EBITDA or Debt to Equity ratio.
Reclassification of Income Statement
Reclassified Income Statement separates operating costs from non-operating ones, highlighting EBIT and EBITDA margins. This allows to evaluate essential ratios, such as EBIT to Interest Expense and Debt to EBITDA. Costs are classified into cost of sales and other specific categories, according to their destination.
A summary of the main financial data allows you to get an immediate feeling of the company’s health.
The application highlights how the most relevant economic data (Revenue, EBIT, EBITDA, Net Profit), changed over the years in order to assess profitability trends.
Variations of Equity and Loan Capital are investigated to evaluate the balance of the company’s capital structure.
The application automatically generates extensive comments describing the financial status of the company through the analysis of key performance indicators.
All ratios are presented in a comprehensive table giving a global perspective on the company.
INCOME STATEMENT RATIOS
Gross Profit margin
Measures the firm’s capacity to generate profit through sales.
Measures overall profitability after taking into account all operating costs: variable costs and fixed costs.
Profit Before Tax margin
Measures how much revenue is converted into profits, before tax is deducted.
Net Profit margin
It is the percentage of revenue remaining after all expenses (operating, financial and tax) have been deducted from the company’s total revenue.
Operating Cash-flow margin
Measures how much cash is generated from operating activities per unit of revenue.
Revenue per Employee
It is an efficiency metric showing how much revenue is collected per single employee. A higher ratio indicates higher productivity.
ROE – Return on Equity
Measures the overall profitability of the Equity capital invested in the company and provides a benchmark to evaluate alternative investments.
ROCE – Return on Capital Employed
Measures the profitability of the ordinary business activities and its efficiency with respect to the amount of capital employed.
Reflects the company’s commercial performance and measures the average profit per unit of revenue.
ROA – Return on Assets
Measures the profitability of the company, based on the company’s assets.
Measures the company’s capacity to generate revenue per unit of asset invested.
Retained Earnings to Total Assets ratio
It is a balance sheet account which records the total amount of profits (or losses) made by a firm over its entire life, net of the dividends paid.
Liquidity analysis reveals whether the business has sufficient resources available in order to service its debt (interest and principal repayments).
Indicates the company’s ability to cover its short-term liabilities using short-term assets (i.e. the assets that turn into cash quickly).
Measures the company’s solvency with regard to short-term liabilities.
It is used to examine the company’s liquidity. It is more conservative than the current ratio and the quick ratio.
Days Payables and Days Receivables
Evaluate the average amount of time it takes the company to pay suppliers and to collect payment from customers.
CAPITAL STRUCTURE RATIOS
Capital structure analysis examines the relationship between internal financial resources and debt capital, assessing the viability of the company’s financing strategy.
Debt to Equity ratio
Compares the financial resources provided by debtholders with those provided by the shareholders. This ratio is used to monitor the company’s financial risk.
Net Debt to Equity ratio
It is defined as the borrowings of the reported entity (Total Liabilities) less cash and cash equivalents. The ratio compares the financial resources provided by debtholders with those provided by the shareholders.
Total Liabilities to Assets ratio
Shows how much of company’s assets consist of liabilities.
Total Liabilities to Equity ratio
Compares the whole amount of the company’s obligations to the book value of Equity
Equity to Assets ratio
Assesses the degree of financial independence, i.e. what percentage of total company’s assets is financed by Equity.
Fixed Assets coverage ratio
Fixed Assets Coverage ratio measures the company’s ability to cover required investments in fixed assets by means of equity and debt.
Working Capital to Assets ratio
The working capital to total assets ratio compares the net liquid assets of the firm to the total assets. Working Capital is the difference between current assets and current liabilities, so the Working Capital to Total Assets ratio determines the short-term company’s solvency.
Leverage ratio indicates a company’s ability to make use of its borrowed capital to purchase assets.
Equity market value to Liabilities ratio
Compares Equity to the total amount of liabilities, considering the actual market value of the company.
Solvency analysis examines a firm’s capability to meet long term obligations. In general, a solvency ratio compares a measure of profitability to the company’s financial obligations.
Debt to EBITDA ratio
It is a solvency indicator that is commonly used by credit rating agencies to assess the probability of defaulting on issued debt.
Debt to Operating Cash-flow ratio
Differently from Debt to EBITDA ratio, it takes into account the actual cash-flow generated by operating activities and compares it to the amount of financial liabilities.
Net Debt to EBITDA ratio
It is akin to Debt on EBITDA ratio. Unlike the aforementioned ratio, it takes into account the company’s immediate liquidity, as it involves net financial debt, i.e. Debt minus cash and cash equivalents.
EBIT to Interest coverage ratio
Assesses the company’s ability to cover its finance charges through its operating income.
EBITDA to Interest coverage ratio
Evaluates the company’s ability to cover its finance charges through its operating income, before depreciation and amortization expenses, and share of profit from associates.
Operating Cash-flow to Interest coverage ratio
Assesses the company’s ability to cover its finance charges comparing interest expense to the actual cash amount generated by operating activities.
Operating Cash-flow to Short- and Long-term Debt ratios
Meeasure the company’s ability to generate cash from operating actvities in order to pay back its current and non-current financial debt.
A final evaluation is provided through the assessment of four areas of financial management:
A specific score will be assigned to each of those areas. If the performance of a certain area is not satisfactory, the system will discuss the reasons of such a negative outcome and will recommend interventions to improve it.
Finally, the application will assign a global score, processing the results obtained in each separate area trough business intelligent algorithms.
Taffler’s model It is an alternative model to assess the likelihood of bankruptcy, based on different parameters and weights, obtained through a specific research on UK companies.
Springate’s model It assigns a score associated to a certain risk of bankruptcy. It is USA specific.
Debt Rating The software, through complex business intelligence algorithms, evaluates the financial debt of the company and assigns a score indicating the debt level and if it is sustainable.
Sensitivity analysis is a tool for Stress Test and cash-flow simulation designed to estimate the creditworthiness of a business. Based on last year financial data, a forecast of the main economic and cash-flow data is obtained for the next year. The future projections are generated over 4 alternative scenarios: a scenario of stable revenue and 3 more scenarios of incremental sales reduction (a 5%, 10%, and 30% drop), thus conducting a financial stress-test based on sales level. The forecast relies upon a ‘business as usual’ model based on the following assumptions: constant DSO, DIO, DPO, constant cost structure, no investments, no non-recurring or extraordinary income (loss). Debt service principal of the projected year is assumed as equal to the amount of Long-term Debt, current maturities + Current Finance Lease at the end of last year.
You want to look in particular at DSCR to understand what sales reduction rate the company could sustain and still be able to pay for its financial obligations (DSCR > 1). Based on this analysis, the company is assigned a sensitivity score: the more DSCR stays over 1 even in case of significant drops in revenue, the better the evaluation.
Short-term Cash Requirement
With this module, the software accurately computes the required value to ensure that the financial structure of working capital is in balance, and the company does not face tensions or lack of liquidity.
Balance: The NWC requirement is exactly equal to the value of the agreed short-term bank facility.
Underutilization: The NWC requirement is higher than the agreed short-term bank facility. In this case, the software suggests the necessary value to rebalance the situation.
Overutilization: The value of the agreed short-term bank facility is higher than the NWC requirement. The financial structure of the company is not balanced because it is financing long-term uses with short-term sources, leading to higher financial costs.
Through the creation of different scenarios, you can also simulate the impact on financial management that variations in different variables can have (DIO, DSO, DPO, sales and incidence of monetary costs).
Automatic dynamic comments The system, through complex business intelligence algorithms, generates automatic comments discussing the company’s performance and rating.
Downloadable and editable The report can be downloaded on your own device and edited according to your needs.
Download formats The report can be downloaded in: Word file, Excel spreadsheet and Pdf.
How Business Intelligence Works
Complex algorithms automatically generate appropriate comments in accordance with the results of the analysis. Based on the financial data entered, the application determines the trend of the Debt to EBITDA ratio and generates the following comment:
Each area of financial management will be examined and evaluated: if the performance of a specific area (e.g. profitability) is not satisfactory, the system will discuss the reasons of such a negative outcome and will recommend corrective actions to improve it. Our R&D department is continuously working on developing more and more extensive comments and recommendations. Updates are automatically available and 100% free.
Reclassifies Balance Sheet and Income Statement and, then calculates EBIT and EBITDA.
Analyzes performances in different areas of financial management (profitability, liquidity, capital structure, solvency). Evaluates the overall business performance. Assesses creditworthiness and assigns a global rating score. All accounting statements of reclassified financials are based on standards adopted by international financial operators, in order to provide effective communication.
The analysis includes ratios, charts, graphs and comments. These are automatically generated by the system through specific business intelligence algorithms and provide an extensive assessment of the company’s performance. The final report is completely editable and customizable
