Understanding Financials Focus of SBDC Workshop Jan. 25

Understand Business Financial Statements
at TAMIU SBDC Seminar Jan. 25

Are your business' financial statements saying nothing to you?

The Texas A&M International University Small Business Development Center (TAMIU-SBDC) will present a seminar on how to read financial statements on Friday, Jan. 25, 2008 from 9 a.m. - noon.

The seminar will be held at the Laredo Development Foundation boardroom, 616 Leal Street. A $20 fee includes workbook.

Many business owners don't know how to read their business statements and rely on advisors to tell them the results.  Their input is valuable, but one must be able to understand statements in order to:

  • Realize the vital role money plays in every business decision
  • Determine if you are making a profit or losing money
  • Calculate your current and future financial needs.

For lending purposes, statements will help you determine:

  • If you can afford to pay a loan
  • Loan amount
  • Loan term (number of years)
  • Which assets you should buy vs. which assets should be financed
  • What collateral is available to secure a loan.

One statement cannot diagnose a company's financial health, but by putting several statements together, one can make smart financial, investment and management decisions.
