If understood, the financial statements within the annual report reveal a considerable amount of information about a company and the discerning investor can even see the warning signs. You will be shown how to understand the relevance of a balance sheet; the importance of recognising impairments and abnormals in the income statement and learn why the cashflow statement is the most important part of the annual report for investors.
