here what the teacher want 


 Please come prepared to discuss your company's financial statements in class.  Specifically:

  1. Does your company have any goodwill reported on the balance sheet and discussed in the notes? What percentage of total assets does goodwill represent? Is goodwill a major asset for your company? Explain.  If your company doesn't have any goodwill, come prepared to discuss what goodwill is and why a company would have it.
  2. Locate the note relating to Intangible Assets in your company's Notes to the Financial Statements. What type of intangible assets does your company have? What proportion of total assets do the intangibles represent?  If your company does not have any intangible assets, come prepared to discuss Intangible Assets.  (If you have a company registered with the SEC, I will be completely surprised if you don't have Intangible Assets…)
  3. Does your company have any trade names, trademarks, and domain names in its Notes to the Financial Statements? Come prepared to comment on the difference between the estimated useful life and the legal life of your company's trademarks. 
  4. How do any of the information from this chapter impact the ratios for your financial analysis project?
