Requirements
1. How much in cash (including cash equivalents) did Target Corporation have on February 2, 2019?
2. What were the company’s total assets at February 2, 2019? At February 3, 2018 (as adjusted)?
3. Why were the financial statements for year ending on February 3, 2018 adjusted? Review Note 2 of the accompanying Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements.
4. Write the company’s accounting equation at February 2, 2019, by filling in the dollar amounts:

Assets = Liabilities + Equity

5. Identify total sales (revenues) for the year ended February 2, 2019. How much did total revenue increase or decrease from fiscal year 2017 to fiscal year 2018? (Because Target’s fiscal year end of February 2, 2019 ends at the beginning of 2019, the majority of Target’s financial results were obtained in the calendar year of 2018. As a result, Target calls the fiscal year 2018 even though the year reported on the annual report ends on February 2, 2019.)

6. How much net income (net earnings) or net loss did Target earn for 2018 and for 2017? Based on net income, was 2018 better or worse than 2017?

7. Calculate Target Corporation’s return on assets for the year ending February 2, 2019. Round to one decimal place. 8. How did Target Corporation’s return on assets compare to Kohl’s Corporation’s return on assets?
