Financial statement analysis assesses a borrower’s financial risk and compliance with the bank's underwriting standards. This analysis goes beyond EBITDA and evaluates operating performance and cash flow, debt repayment ability, liquidity, leverage, and profitability. It also focuses on the borrower’s risk/ability to meet cash demands within the operating cash-flow process or by using other cash resources, (i.e., investing revenue, financing resources, equity contributions, and global cash flow). The credit analyst must understand “external financing activities” – what outside sources were used and how much cash was obtained from each. This analysis determines whether a company can support additional debt.

Part 2 of this two-part series will address determining an operating entity’s ability to generate cash needed for:

  1. On-going operation of the business entity
  2. Interest payments, current year CPLTD, and shareholder dividends
  3. Capital spending on plant, equipment, and other fixed assets
