Instructional Delivery Method: Group Live-Seminar

CLE Credit: 8 Hours - One-Day Seminar

In one interesting and informative day you will learn how to use financial statements to properly evaluate any firm’s financial health. 

Your customized in house seminar utilizes a comprehensive “real-life” case study of a public company your firm chooses to illustrate how to use financial statements, calculate financial ratios, determine a firm’s strength and weaknesses and plan strategic action accordingly. No other seminar company customizes this topic to this extent – your training can also serve as a consulting engagement.
