Respond
to the following scenario with your thoughts, ideas, and comments. Be
substantive and clear, and use research to reinforce your ideas.

In
anticipation of Mary’s request for comparative analysis, it will be
useful at this time to do some research. You know that you can obtain
the financials of companies within the same sector or Standard Industry
Code as Apix Printing (e.g., commercial printing), and that the North
American Industry Classification System (NAICS) Standard Industry 2012
code for Apix Printing is presently 323111. Use Hoover’s Pro http://subscriber.hoovers.com/H/home/index.html to search for two other companies in the same industry as Apix Printing.

When you get to work the next day, you see the following e-mail from Mary:

Here
is the list of financial ratios you asked for. I need you to explain
the computation of each and compute these for Apix’s results for the
financial statements you are using for the PowerPoint presentation.
Also, compare Apix’s 2-year trend results to that of two other firms in
the sector. Indicate how each of Apix’s ratios differ, and indicate
whether the two other companies’ ratios or Apix’s ratios are indicative
of better performance.

Explain the computation for
each of the following, and compute each for Apix and two other companies
in the same industry as Apix Printing:

  • Current ratio
  • (Long-term) debt to equity ratio
  • Gross margin percentage
  • Net profit margin percentage
  • Return on equity percentage

Present
your findings of the above data in a table. Add a paragraph that
summarizes your results, indicating whether investors would find the
financial analysis results of Apix competitive as compared to rivals in
the sector. Be sure to include both positive and negative trends in your
analysis.

Assignment Objectives

Interpret and analyze hurdle rates, return on equity, and project selection
