CHAPTER 1 INTRODUCTION

INTRODUCTION

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. Therefore, much can be learnt about a firm from a careful examination of its financial statements as invaluable documents and performance reports. The analysis of financial statements is an important aid to financial analysis. They provide information on how the firm has performed in the past and what is its current financial position. 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. The focus of financial analysis is on key figures in the financial statements and the significant relationship that exists between them. The analysis of financial statements is a process of evaluating relationship between component parts of financial statements to obtain a better understanding of the firms position and performance. The first task of financial analyst is to select the information relevant to the decision under consideration from the total information contained in the financial statement. The second step involved in financial analysis is to arrange the information in a way to highlight significant relationships. The final step is interpretation and drawing of inferences and conclusions. In brief, financial analysis is the process of selection, relation, and evaluation.

INDUSTRIAL PROFILE

1.1.1 NON-BANKING FINANCIAL COMPANIES (NBFCS) Non-bank financial companies (NBFCs) are financial institutions that provide banking services without meeting the legal definition of a bank, i.e. one that does not hold a banking license. Operations are, regardless of this, still exercised under bank regulation. According to Reserve Bank Amendment of Act 1997, A Non-Banding Financial Company (NBFCs) means, y y A financial institution which is a company A non-banking institution which is a company which has its principal business receiving of deposits under any scheme of arrangement or in any other manner or lending in any manner The non-banking financial sector in India has tremendous growth in recent years. NBFCs attracted a large number of small investors since the rate of return on deposits with them was relatively high. NBFCs are quite flexible sectors like equipment leasing, hire-purchase, housing finance, consumer finance and so on, where gaps between the demand and supply of funds have been high. The growth in number of NBFCs was facilitated by the case of entry, limited fixed assets and absence of any need to hold inventories.

1.1.2 CURRENT SCENARIO OF NBFCS The base of todays feebleness of Non-Banking Finance Companies can perhaps be traced back to early nineties. The buoyant capital market, in the first flush liberalization welcomed every issue with huge premiums and massive over subscription. This was the signal for several unscrupulous promoters to set up high profile finance companies and raise money from both the capital markets and through public deposits. The Reserve Bank of India for its past, progressively relaxed its regulatory hold over the industry and made it possible for the companies with little financial strength and even fewer scrupulous to raise large amounts of money from an unsuspecting public. Hardly anyone knew
3

or questioned how these moneys were deployed. Soon afterward, the stock market scam broke claiming its first victim from the non-banking finance companies sector. With the capital market in disarray, it was no longer possible for continue of fund flow, from investors who had burnt their fingers in the stock markets. It was thus convenient fresh deposits. In July1996, the RBI, perhaps the most sweeping changes in the non-banking finance companies regulation, virtually pulled out all the stock, enabling companies to raise deposits with minimum number and more significantly, removed the ceiling on interest rate. At the point, when the government was faced with grim situation and responding to the plea of the industry, the government set up a special task force headed by Mr. C.M. Vasudev to recommend the steps for the orderly growth of finance companies while keeping investor protection as its key priority. The committee in its final report recognized the important role played by these companies and warned against the tendencies to tar all the companies with the same brush. The silent recommendations of the Vasudev committee were y y Review of minimum capital requirement of Rs. 25lakhs for registration purposes Higher capital adequacy ratio for non-banking finance companies seeking public deposits without credit rating y y Preview of prudential norms with ceiling for exposure to real estate and capital markets Differential ceiling on public deposit acceptance for companies with and without credit ratings y A separate instrument to regulate and supervise non-banking finance companies.

1.1.3 ADVANTAGE OF NBFCs 1. Lower transaction costs 2. Higher rate of interest on deposits compared to banks 3. Quick financial decision caking 4. Customer orientation 5. Prompt provision of services

1.1.4 RBI GUIDELINES FOR NBFCs The nineties witnessed a dramatic increase in the number of NBFCs and it was thought necessary to have a regulatory framework for NBFCs. RBI came out with set of guidelines for NBFCs specifically aimed at protecting the depositors. To encourage the NBFCs that is running on sound business principals, on July 24th 1996, NBFCs were divided into two classes, i. ii. Equipment leasing and hire purchase (finance company) Loan and investment companies

CHAPTER 3 LITERATURE REVIEW

LITERATURE REVIEW

3.1 REVIEW OF LITERATURE Literature Review was done by referring previous studies, articles and books to know the areas of study and analyze the gap or study not done so far. There are various studies were conducted relating to operational performance of the company from which most relevant literatures were reviewed. Kennedy and Muller (1999), has explained that The analysis and interpretation of financial statements are an attempt to determine the significance and meaning of financial statements data so that the forecast may be made of the prospects for future earnings, ability to pay interest and debt maturines (both current and long term) and profitability and sound dividend policy. T.S.Reddy and Y. Hari Prasad Reddy (2009), have stated that The statement disclosing status of investments is known as balance sheet and the statement showing the result is known as profit and loss account Peeler J. Patsula (2006), he define that a sound business analysis tells others a lot about good sense and understanding of the difficulties that a company will face. We have to make sure that people know exactly how we arrived to the final financial positions. We have to show the calculation but we have to avoid anything that is too mathematical. A business performance analysis indicates the further growth and the expansion. It gives a physiological advantage to the employees and also a planning advantage. I.M.Pandey (2007), had stated that the financial statements contain information about the financial consequences and sources and uses of financial resources, one should be able to say whether the financial condition of a firm is good or bad; whether it is improving or deteriorating. One can relate the financial variables given in financial statements in a meaningful way which will suggest the actions which one may have to initiate to improve the firms financial condition.

Chidambaram Rameshkumar & Dr. N. Anbumani (2006), he argue that Ratio Analysis enables the business owner/manager to spot trends in a business and to compare its performance

15

and condit ion wit h the average performance of similar businesses in the same industry. To do this compare your ratios with the average of businesses similar to yours and compare your own ratios for several successive years, watching especially for any unfavorable trends that may be starting. Ratio analysis may provide the all-important early warning indications that allow you to solve your business problems before your business is destroyed by them. Jae K.Shim & Joel G.Siegel (1999), had explained that the financial statement of an enterprise present the raw data of its assets, liabilities and equities in the balance sheet and its revenue and expenses in the income statement. Without subjecting these to data analysis, many fallacious conclusions might be drawn concerning the financial condition of the enterprise. Financial statement analysis is undertaken by creditors, investors and other financial statement users in order to determine the credit worthiness and earning potential of an entity. Susan Ward (2008), emphasis that financial analysis using ratios between key values help investors cope with the massive amount of numbers in company financial statements. For example, they can compute the percentage of net profit a company is generating on the funds it has deployed. All other things remaining the same, a company that earns a higher percentage of profit compared to other companies is a better investment option. M Y Khan & P K Jain (2011), have explained that the Financial statements provide a summarized view of the financial position and operations of a firm. Therefore, much can be learnt about a firm from a careful examination of its financial statements as invaluable documents / performance reports. The analysis of financial statements is, thus, an important aid to financial analysis. Elizabeth Duncan and Elliott (2004), had stated that the paper in the title of efficiency, customer service and financing performance among Australian financial institutions showed that all financial performance measures as interest margin, return on assets, and capital adequacy are positively correlated with customer service quality scores. Jonas Elmerraji (2005), tries to say that ratios can be an invaluable tool for making an investment decision. Even so, many new investors would rather leave their decisions to fate than
16

try to deal with the intimidation of financial ratios. The truth is that ratios aren't that intimidating, even if you don't have a degree in business or finance. Using ratios to make informed decisions about an investment makes a lot of sense, once you know how use them. Carlos Correia (2007), had explained that any analysis of the firm, whether by management, investors, or other interested parties, must include an examination of the companys financial data. The most obvious and readily available source of this information is the firms annual report. The financial statements shall, in conformity with generally accepted accounting practice, fairly present the state of the affairs of the company and the results of operations for the financial year. Greninger et al.(1996), identified and refined financial ratios using a Delphi study in the areas of liquidity, savings, asset allocation, inflation protection, tax burden, housing expenses and, insolvency. Based on the Delphi findings, they proposed a profile of financial well-being for the typical family and individual. Rachchh Minaxi A (2011), have suggested that the financial statement analysis involves analyzing the financial statements to extract information that can facilitate decision making. It is the process of evaluating the relationship between component parts of the financial statements to obtain a better understanding of an entitys position and performance. Salmi, T. and T. Martikainen (1994), in his "A review of the theoretical and empirical basis of financial ratio analysis", has suggested that A systematic framework of financial statement analysis along with the observed separate research trends might be useful for furthering the development of research. If the research results in financial ratio analysis are to be useful for the decision makers, the results must be theoretically consistent and empirically generalizable. John J.Wild, K.R.Subramanyam & Robert F.Halsey (2006), have said that the financial statement analysis is the application of analytical tools and techniques to general-purpose financial statements and related data to derive estimates and inferences useful in business analysis. Financial statement analysis reduces reliance on hunches, guesses, and intuition for business decisions. It decreases the uncertainty of business analysis.
