How much each organization has used debt to finance activities?.
In a separate narrative please tell me why you chose the companies you selected, why you were doing this, talk about your analysis and what you found overall. Using the Fraser and Ormiston text, Understanding Financial Statements, as a reference, and what we have reviewed in RP1 to prepare, from the financial statements, a three-year ratio analysis for your company. While you can use the Fraser and Ormiston book as a framework I want you to tailor the ratios you use in your analysis to your own industry.

In general, I have learned (though certainly am not proficient in): a better understanding of how to identify and translate data from a 990 into Financial Statements for the purposes of analysis how to use ratios to paint a clearer picture of how one organization compares to another in financial performance more about the many different types of ratios that exist and what they mean how to us Excel more efficiently and effectively for the purposes of data analysis More specifically, I learned more about these two organizations by choosing a cross-section of ratios in the following areas: Liquidity (current, quick, cash flow) to gain a better understanding of how these two organizations manage their cash and how quickly and easily (or not) they could cover additional acti
