Accounting: Critically explain how a company can analyse and adjust its profitability. 500 words

Finance: How could the financing policy of the firm affect the return on equity of the firm?


Notes on the task:

  • Accounting question requires you to present your answer in an essay format. No calculation is needed but you can use example if you think it is relevant. Keep in mind that you are limited to 500 words. You should use the elements of the module to answer the question in an analytical way (≠ descriptive).
  • Finance question requires you to present the essay using both mathematical decomposition of return on equity (ROE) and present textual argument based on the components of the decomposition. You need to incorporate the knowledge you learn during the module to justify the argument.




Module Learning Outcomes:

In this assessment the following learning outcomes will be covered:

LO 1. Understand the financial statement of the corporate and conduct the basic analysis of financial performance
LO 2. How the cost of debt is measured in the financial statement of the firm and the component of the cost of debt (inflation, risk-free rate of return and default risk premium)

LO3: The impact of financial leverage from the cost-benefit trade-off perspective on return on total assets


Grading Criteria:


  • Critical thinking
  • Identification of the key elements of the profitability in the financial statements
  • Identification of the key calculations to analyse the profitability
  • Ability to understand the information inside the financial statement
  • Ability to be analytical
  • Quality of the writing



     40% mark will be attributable to the decomposition of return on equity. 60% will relate to the discussion regarding the cost and the benefit of financial leverage and the implication of financial leverage for the return on equity. With respect to the 40%, students should be able to use the Dupont decomposition to show that The ROE can be decomposed into the sum of return on business assets and the product of spread and financial leverage. In the case where the spread is positive, i.e the return on business assets is larger than the interest expense after tax on debt (i.e. effective interest rate), the increase in debt in the firm’s capital structure will lead to the increase in ROE, while keeping all other factors the same. Regarding the 60%, 1).students should continue discussing the cost and benefit of debt from its impact on return on business assets (ROA) and on the cost of debt perspective (with respect to the trading off theory).  Student should be able to talk about the required rate of return of debt allowing for default risk premium via the discussion of financial ratio reflecting the liquidity risk. Good student could be able to combine the knowledge of accounting financial statement analysis of the investment policy with the discussion of the return on business assets as well.
