Reading Financial Statements

March 20, 2019 — 9:00 - Noon

Presented by Timothy J. Gavin, CPA, Senior Audit Manager, John Kasperek, Co., Inc.




Financial statements can be confusing and hard to read, and yet they provide some of the most valuable

information in assessing the financial health of an organization. With so much information that is

presented, it can be hard to separate what matters to you from what doesn’t. This session will

demonstrate how to interpret the numbers and notes in a standard financial report and show how to best use the information to understand an organization. Whether you’re a manager, board member, or other stakeholder, making sense of a financial report is key in making informed decisions.



         Understand the basics of financial report structure.

         Read and interpret the balance sheet, income statement, and statement of cash flows.

         Analyze the note disclosure.

         Identify the information most important in analysis and decision-making.
