Attend this proactive training session and learn to think like a banker, work more like a consultant than a CPA, and get way beyond the numbers! This webinar emphasizes financial statement analysis using a practical approach to reading financial information. A banker's review of standard financial statements will be followed by an in-depth display of financial ratios and cash flow analyses.

The participant is also provided techniques to determine a company's true cash flow position, a personal cash flow approach, and a real estate cash flow scenario. Two case studies are presented to reinforce the financial analysis concepts using the Moody’s Risk Analysts spreadsheet and industry comparisons.

This webinar will also outline how banks make commercial credit decisions using established analytical techniques and concludes with a review of the Z-score (bankruptcy predictor) and sustainable growth models.
