Evaluating a Borrower’s Operating Performance

October 6 2020 16:00 - 17:00 UTC

This webinar will show bankers, lenders and credit professionals how to:

  • Evaluate a borrower’s operating performance—revenue generation, productivity, efficiency, and profitability--as they analyze the information disclosed in its income statement.
  • Identify the critical elements of the profit and loss statement and their roles in driving a business borrower’s operating performance.
  • Judge a borrower’s operating performance trends and results compared to industry averages

Specific topics covered include:

  • P&L’s key components—revenue, cost of goods sold, gross profit, operating expenses, profit before taxes, taxes, profit after taxes
  • Revenue growth—actual sales growth vs sustainable growth rate
  • Break-even analysis—how much revenue does a borrower need just to cover its expenses?
  • Operating leverage—the smaller the gross profit, the more vulnerable a borrower’s profitability is to declining revenues
  • Production vs. productivity
  • Profit margins—gross profit margin, before-tax profit margin, after-tax profit margin
  • Analysis of return on sales, return on assets, return on equity
  • Profit vs cash flow—why profit is not always equal to cash flow

A case study is used to demonstrate how to evaluate operating performance throughout the webinar.
