i also have one more query . Company A has consolidated financial statements where as company B has Single company financial statements. What am i supposed to do in such a situation ?
Find the unconsolidated financial statements for your company A
there is any solution like changing the consolidated data to single entity ? as consolidted FS are very complex. and i have less time . i need to calculate ratios , produce graphs , make appendices , my excel is not yet ready . please help .
Comparing un-consolidated with consolidated is difficult and not recommended. Even in operating segment there is little information provided to make an effective analysis (if there is, you can use that). Problem is that it is like group with single entity. Try to find a competitor as a group.
Year end difference is not major here – only 3 months. State that in the limitation.
And also dont use un audited information.
but un audited information is only provided.
at this moment how will i search for a competitor as a group ?
for the period april – december 2016 , un audited info is provided for company B . rest of the reports are audited.
after i mention that in limitation about the year end difference , then in appendices what i should do ? like in the excel how i should adjust the financial statements?
should i do pro rata calculation for company B in order to align with company A’s year end ? for eg for the year 2014 – i will take company B’s 3 months from 31st march 2014 ending and rest 9 months from 31st march 2015 ending . total 12 months adjusted according to company A . is that the right way ?
