Agriculture Marketing Company Limited (PRAN) is a well known and leading food company in Bangladesh. So, to make a financial report on this company we have to give our full effort. It is not an easy job to analyze AMCL (PRAN)’s financial performance. We tried our best.
We collect information from website, reference book from Bangladesh, yearly annual report of AMCL (PRAN) and from other sources.
To collect further information, we had to go to the head office of AMCL (PRAN). We tried to meet with the head of finance department and head of accounting department. But they were too busy on their job. Beside this, the head office didn’t provide us such information that can help us making the report. We had to go to Dhaka Stock Exchange to collect the annual reports of AMCL (PRAN) and after a lot of straggle we got that.
We take information from the book of “Balance Sheet of Joint Stock Companies (2000-2004)” published by the Statistics Department of Bangladesh Bank.
