Example text

What would a better pie chart look like? Well, we might see a decrease in long-term debt, an increase in retained earnings, and a slight decrease in stock as the company is buying its stock back and retiring it. In our financial analysis in the final five chapters, we look at a real balance sheet for two corporations. Quiz 1. Assets = (a) liabilities plus cash (b) liabilities plus equity (c) liabilities plus net income 2. Assets are (a) happy things that you own (b) sad amounts that you owe other people (c) disclosed on the cash flow statement (d) highly liquid 3.

I have seen loan covenants that require the borrower to keep a certain amount of cash in the lending bank at all times. Covenants might require you to keep inventory levels at a certain amount or limit debt with other lenders. If you fall outside of their dictated parameters, you have “busted the covenants” and the bank can call your loan. If you are super high risk, the loan covenants can require you to replace members of your board of directors with bank officers or require that you report to them on a daily basis the results of your operations.

On the right-hand side of our balance sheet are two categories of items—a liability category and an equity category. Equity is not a subset of the liability category; it is an entirely different category unto itself. The second mistake people make is that they want to link one side of the balance sheet to the other. For instance, they want to say that retained earnings is in cash. Remember that the balance sheet is the super summary of the general ledger. It rolls up the information in the general ledger—thousands, sometimes hundreds of thousands of transactions—and categorizes the data into just a few key accounts.
