Background Information

In this workshop, you have learned about the vital nature of cash flow to a company’s survival, much less success. To the surprise and dismay of many business leaders, success and growth often lead to cash flow problems. This is the problem faced by Tad Marks of Sunset Boards. The company is profitable, and demand for its products is quickly growing. As a result, Tad Marks is considering expanding the business and has brought you in as a financial analyst to weigh in on the decision. As a consultant, you will first construct income statements, balance sheets, and a cash flow statement for a company and then attempt to apply your understanding to evaluate the company’s growth plans.
