We have seen many companies are separating their business division to the different entities and many times, those different entities are getting managed differently. We also consider such step of the management as a shareholder-friendly and value creation for the shareholders of the company.
In this issue, I am going to explain what demerger is and how it can impact the financial of a company?
I have mentioned during the series of Warren Buffett’s letter that buyback done by the company considers good. Also when the market value of the company is available at discount from intrinsic value and company does not have a better opportunity to make an investment then company has to repurchase own shares. We have heard that the company having good management then they come up with a buyback and others will come up with a dilution of capital. The buyback is one of the criteria for judging a capital allocation decision of management that whether good or not.
We have seen in the previous simple is better to issue regarding profit and loss account in Issue-8, balance sheet in Issue-9, Relationship between balance sheet and profit & loss account in Issue-10, and Cash flow statement in issue-11. Analysis of balance sheet is essential for a better understanding of the financial strength of the company. Balance sheet majorly focuses on the sources from where we have brought the fund and at where we have deployed that fund.
Equity and liability side shows us a source of funds and assets side show us an application of the funds which we have brought.
We have to check in detail that does fund get proper utilization which company has to bring or not. For proper understanding, we need to prepare and analysis fund flow statement. Using fund flow analysis, we can come to that fund is effectively utilized by the management or not. This analysis also helps us to know where the fund is going and from where the fund is coming to the business. Does fund utilize to the wrong places or does fund brings from the sources which can be not favorable for the owners of the company?
We have seen profit and loss account in Issue-8, Balance sheet in Issue-9 and Relationship between balance sheet and profit & loss account in Issue-10. After understanding of Profit & loss account and Balance sheet, we move forward to the third financial statement in the current issue that is “Cash flow statement”.
