EXCEL PROJECT: PROJECTING FINANCIAL STATEMENTS ASSIGNMENT INSTRUCTIONS
OVERVIEW
Common Sized Balance Sheets (Tabs 12), Common Sized Income Statements (Tab 13), Horizontal Analysis Balance Sheets (Tab 14), Horizontal Analysis Income Statements (Tab 15), and Projected Financial Statements (Tabs 16-18) 
INSTRUCTIONS
Continue in the same Excel workbook prepared in Module 4: Week 4, adding the following tabs:
o The 12th tab in your Financial Statement Analysis Template must be labeled Common Sized Balance Sheets.
 Set-up like the Historical Balance Sheets (Tab 3), this worksheet should use formulas to calculate the common sized percentages, linking to the Historical Balance Sheets for the calculations.  “Total Assets” should be used as the base for all common sized calculations on the Balance Sheets.  Common sized percentages should be calculated for all three historical years presented.
 See Exhibit A for a partial example of this tab.
o The 13th tab in your Financial Statement Analysis Template must be labeled Common Sized Income Statements.
 Set-up like the Historical Income Statements (Tab 2), this worksheet should use formulas to calculate the common sized percentages, linking to the Historical Income Statements for the calculations.  “Revenue” or “Total Revenue” (depending on your company) should be used as the base for all common sized calculations on the Income Statements. Common sized percentages should be calculated for all three historical years presented.
o The 14th tab in your Financial Statement Analysis Template must be labeled Horizontal Analysis of Balance Sheets.
 Start by copying and pasting the Historical Balance Sheets from Tab 3 to this worksheet.  Then, add dollar and percentage change columns between each of the set of historical years.
 See Exhibit B for an example of this tab.
o The 15th tab in your Financial Statement Analysis Template must be labeled Horizontal Analysis of Income Statements.
 Start by copying and pasting the Historical Income Statements from Tab 2 to this worksheet.  Then, add dollar and percentage change columns between each of the set of historical years.
o The 16th tab in your Financial Statement Analysis Template must be labeled Projected Income Statements.  Three years of projected statements should be included, starting with the most recent year after the company’s last issued report.  
o The 17th tab in your Financial Statement Analysis Template must be labeled Projected Balance Sheets.  Three years of projected statements should be included.  Three years of projected statements should be included, starting with the most recent year after the company’s last issued report.  
o The 18th tab in your Financial Statement Analysis Template must be labeled Projected Statement of Cash Flows.  Three years of projected statements should be included, starting with the most recent year after the company’s last issued report.  
 Other information relating to projected tabs:
 Projections should be based on research performed on your company and its industry.  Use historical, trend, ratio data and current and future economic projections as well as information from the company’s MD&A to aid in preparing projections.
 Clearly state your assumptions in a text box at the bottom of each tab.  Cite sources for assumptions based on research.  
 The statements should be consistent, reasonable, and accurate.  Areas that will be checked for accuracy include:
• The Balance Sheets should balance for all years presented.
• Retained earnings should be properly calculated using the prior year’s balance, net income, and dividends.
• The Ending Cash Balance on the Statement of Cash Flows should agree to the Cash Balance shown on the Balance Sheet for the same year.
• Net Income on the Income Statements should match what is reported on the top of the Statement of Cash Flows (if indirect method is used).
o Other instructions:
 The Excel workbook should be professionally formatted.  Professional formatting includes:
• All numbers are formatted similarly.  The use of decimals, commas for thousands, and other formatting is consistent.
• Dollar signs are included in the first and last numbers of each column.
• Subtotals and totals are preceded by a single underline.  Totals are followed by a double underline.
• Line descriptions are indented/bolded in a manner that makes the spreadsheet easy to read.  
 All common sized, horizontal analysis, and projection items should be calculated using formulas.  Totals and subtotals should also be calculated using formulas.  For an example of which cells may need formulas, please see Exhibits A & B.
Note: Your assignment will be checked for originality via the Turnitin plagiarism tool.

FAQ

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email (support@essaynook.com) or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at anna@essaynook.com, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
