Below is the assignment. The company is Amazon. I am also attaching the Ruberic and the already completed Documents that address parts I-IV below. This just need to be included in the final project with part V at the end. For this project, you will produce a financial statement analysis and valuation report that summarizes the financial health, projected future performance, and estimated value of the publicly traded (S&P 500) company that you selected at the beginning of the course. As an independent financial accounting analyst working for a major trade journal, your report is intended to inform a general audience about the overall financial well-being of the company and how it compares to a major competitor. Your report should cover information of interest to both internal and external stakeholders—summarizing major findings, suggesting ways to improve operational performance, and assessing investment potential. Keep in mind that brief, clear communications are essential in effectively reaching business and media audiences. Specifically, you must address the critical elements listed below. Most of the critical elements align with a particular course outcome (shown in brackets). I. Company Background. Provide your audience with relevant context on the selected company, including the purpose of the valuation. Your goal is to set the stage for the analysis to follow. The elements listed below must be included. [ACC-345-02] A. Purpose for valuation B. Date of valuation C. Percent ownership being valued D. Company history and business structure 2 E. Description of facilities, major assets, or equipment key to running the business F. Overview of Management Structure II. Balance Sheet Analysis. In this section, use financial statements and accompanying notes to: A. Analyze what the company’s current and prior year liquidity and debt-to-equity ratios say about the company’s financial health, justifying your response. Consider the appropriate level of debt and how this year’s performance compares to the previous year’s. [ACC-345-01] B. Consider normalization adjustments when adjusting the balance sheet to be comparable to competitors’, when creating the prospective balance sheet, and when calculating the final company valuation as either a premium or discount.

(Include your vertical analysis spreadsheet in Excel as an appendix.) Be sure to explain your findings. [ACC-345-01] B. Normalization adjustments. Analyze historical income statements to determine whether there were any non-recurring or extraordinary items that should be removed from the income statement. An example would be aggressive expense recognition or conservative revenue recognition, which could either depress or inflate earnings. Adjusting these items will make the target company more comparable to the others. [ACC-34502] C. Free cash flow. Analyze what your selected company’s free cash flow figures for the current and prior year say about the company’s financial health. Consider other sources or uses of available discretionary cash.

[ACC-345-01] IV. Industry and Economic Analysis. This section will focus on evaluating the selected company’s industry, its market structure, competitors, supply and demand, regulations, outlook or forecast, and other relevant factors specific to that industry.
