3.. Reason for Choosing the Organization When I was informed that I would have to do the financial analysis of last three years of any listed company than the primary challenge for me was to choose the organization on which I can start my working. It was bit difficult and confusing for me to select the organization. I started brainstorming and came up with many well-known organizations having large operations, both in Pakistan and worldwide. After gathering data and relevant information, I ended with three business sectors, Automobile industry, Textile industry and Tobacco industry.
I choose best companies in their respective class, but after applying hindsight, I decided to go with Automobile industry and the organization I selected was “Indus Motor Company Limited” 3. 1 Aims and Objectives of the Project The main objectives and aims of this project are to analyze and evaluate the overall performance of the company by applying different conceptual models and discuss the liquidity, cash flow situation and produce informative report usable by the users of the statements assessing the financial position, performance and adaptability of the organization.
The performance evaluation is based on historic and current available data about the operations of the company. Under the constantly increasing competition in the business market, these analyses portray a very clear and informative picture to the investors, shareholders, regulators and other players in the stock market. Finally, the project draws conclusions based on my analysis about the current situation and the prospects of the Indus Motor Company Limited. 4.. Executive Summary Indus Motor Company is one of the Automobile Companies, which formed with the help of house of Habib, Toyota Motor Corporation, Toyota Tsusho Corporation.
It manufactures and imports cars and enjoys a healthy share in the market. It is competing with the Honda, Nissan, Suzuki and Mitsubishi. To sustain its lead IMC must maintain strategic competitive advantage, which is its production strength, ability to produce quality cars with respect to low cost and research and development in hybrid and bio fuel cars. But recently company is in stabilization mode trying to improve its functional area, consolidation of resources and maintaining SCA. In my opinion, it is the best move made by IMC to survive the financial holocaust.
