Optional Financial Statement Analysis Workshop (Online)
March 22 and April 5, 12, 19, 21, 2021

The ABA Financial Statement Analysis Workshop is a companion course to the ABA Foundational Commercial Lending School program. It is specifically designed for those bankers, regulators, auditors and bank lenders who have been away from commercial lending for a while, want to 'brush up' on their financial statement analysis, or are new to the field. In addition, it's an excellent way to acclimate oneself to the full ABA programs. This optional one-and-a-half-day online program starts the day before the ABA Foundational Commercial Lending School.

Coursework covers contents of the balance sheet and the operating statement, auditor reports, ratio analysis, cash flow statements, working capital and commercial collateral. Upon completion, you will be able to use basic financial ratios to establish the financial condition of a commercial business; determine the basis of accounting used and its effect on the financial statement or tax return; and develop and analyze a cash flow model for a more complete picture of business cash flow.
