Must use Cardinal Health Inc 10k link below, for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020.
Review the company’s MD&A as well as financial statements and the accompanying footnotes. Use this information to prepare your “analytic” results. The SEC 10-K report and the materials from our class are the only resources you should use. Avoid a copy and paste approach except for the presentation of financial statements.
The content of your paper should focus on accounting issues and include words used in our accounting class, including financial accounting as well as managerial accounting. Include details you learned this semester.
Use terms from our class along with the research and financial analysis completed for your SEC 10-K company. The use of headings will label the sections in your paper. You should present inventory turnover, days sales in inventory, days sales in accounts receivable, and other financial ratio analysis from our course, both for the current year and as they relate to changes in accounts from one year to the next. Your goal is to explain the financial statements and the information of the SEC 10-K with the knowledge you learn from our class. While not explaining every item in the SEC 10-K, your paper should tell a story and illustrate your mastery of accounting terms and concepts. No more than one page should be devoted to your company’s history and non-financial information.
Your paper should consist, at a minimum, of the following:
- 3 – 4 pages single spaced, double space between paragraphs. Page count does not include title page, tables and exhibits, table of contents, and works cited list
- title page
- bibliography or works cited (business classes use APA format)
- in-text citations (business classes use APA format)
- tables, and appendixes if you wish to copy and paste financial statements or materials you did not write (these will not be part of the ‘page count’)
- Your paper should use one-inch margins on the left, right, top, and bottom of each page, and font set at 12 points.
