Jeopardy Inc.’s CFO has just left the office of the company president after a meeting about the draft balance sheet at April 30, 2011, and income statement for the year ended. (Both are reproduced below.) “Our liquidity position looks healthy,” the president had remarked. “Look at the current and acid-test ratios, and the amount of working capital we have. And between the goodwill writeoff and depreciation, we have almost $23 million of non-cash expenses. I don’t understand why you’ve been complaining about our cash situation.”
The CFO turns the draft financial statements over to you, the newest member of the accounting staff, along with extracts from the notes to the financial statements.
