You are required to select any one company of your choice which is listed on either Dubai Financial Market (DFM) or Abu Dhabi Securities Market (ADSM). Send me an email giving at least two names of companies and I will assign you one of them. This is just to avoid duplication of companies.
You are asked to conduct a financial analysis of your chosen company. You may want to attempt any of the below mentioned components for your analysis:-
(a) Trend Analysis
(b) Industry Comparison
(c) Peer Analysis
If you're picking trend analysis, it should be for at least three recent years. If you are taking industry analysis then it could be the most recent year i.e. either 2009 or 2008. But if you want to attempt the third option i.e. peer analysis, then you need to pick another company of similar nature in terms of assets, business, turnover etc and carry out comparative analysis for the most recent year.
You can download 'financial statements' of your chosen company from its own website under 'investor relation'; 'financial information'; 'annual report' menu.
Your analysis should include calculation, a 2-page summary including profitability, liquidity, asset utilization, and debt utilization aspects, and financial statements of your sample company as annexure.
