CHAPTER – 1
The financial statement provides the basic data for financial performance analysis. The financial statements provide a summarized view of the financial position and operations of a firm. Financial analysis (also referred to as financial statement analysis or accounting analysis) refers to an assessment of the viability, stability and profitability of a business. The analyst first identifies the information relevant to the decision under consideration from the total information contained in the financial statements.

Financial analysis is the process of identifying the financial strengths and weakness of the firm from the available accounting data and financial statements. The analysis is done by establishing relationship between the different items of financial statements.
