Business Analysis
Perform an analysis of your business using your results from the required calculations listed above and any other trend information you deem to be relevant. Use these calculations to determine how the company is doing overall. Hint: Consider creating graphs/tables to support your conclusions NOTE: Before you prepare your response to this question, you need to come up to me and ask from which “point of view” you are to analyze the company. You will either be a banker, an investor (stockholder), or the CEO of this company. This is not for you to choose. I will assign this (once you ask).

Projected Income Statement for 2012
Build a projected income statement for next year based on forecasted sales that equal $3,250,000. Use the results of the analysis you performed in the preceding question and any other information you deem to be relevant to build this income statement. Provide a brief explanation of the method(s) your group used to determine the projected numbers.

Actual vs. Predicted Earnings Per Share Evaluation
Analysts predicted earnings per share (EPS) for your company to be $0.12 at the close of 2011. How does this compare to actual EPS for 2011? If actual EPS is higher than the analysts’ prediction, what factors contributed to the success? If actual EPS is lower than the prediction, how will you explain the shortfall to your investors? Is there anything you could have done to meet the prediction? NOTE: Assume that you are the CEO of the company when preparing your response to this question.
