Understanding and Analysis of Financil Statements

July 09 - 10, 2015


IMI Campus, New Delhi

Programme Director: Prof Sanjay Dhamija


Introduction & Objectives

Accounting is fast emerging as the language of business. A business enterprise communicates its results to the stakeholders through financial statements. These financial statements can be used in a variety of ways - to take credit decisions, investment decisions or simply to understand the revenue and cost structure of the competitors. Understanding of the financial statements enhances our ability to assess the prospects and risk being faced by the company. However over a period of time complexities of accounting have increased many folds. The operating managers find it difficult to understand and interpret the information conveyed by these financial statements. The workshop will be helpful in improving business decisions by evaluating company’s financial position. The participants will also be able to understand the disclosure requirements of the recently promulgated Companies Act 2013.


  • The workshop will focus on understanding and analysis of the financial statements and will help the participants in answering the following questions and beyond:
  • What do the financial statements tell us and what are their limitations?

  • Use of information like segment reporting, management discussion and analysis and Auditors Report.
