8 BM Financial Statement Themes

Home > Blog > 8 BM Financial Statement Themes

It's been a busy weekend - thank you to everyone who came to our Bespoke Monogramming AI Masterclass and participated in all our exercises. You came a long way in your understanding, and know what you need to do before we start work on Exam Technique. Those of you signed up to our Online Programme or Masterclass videos can watch the recording and download the material now - log in and go to your resources page.

Our first session was based on Requirement 1 and together we identified 8 themes in the numbers:

  • Revenue growth from new and existing customers
  • Reliance on Big 4
  • Declining GP%
  • GP% is critical to OP
  • GP% is dependent on cost control
  • Costs and overheads under pressure
  • Weak(ish) balance sheet
  • Impact of working capital on overdraft

Watch Neil talk about them in a short extract here, and use them to focus your financial statement analysis work so you understand the 'story' the numbers are telling you. You have a Requirement 2 exercise to complete, as well as your Commercial Planning Sheets for Requirement 3.
