Assets include:
Telecommunications assets

Assets are recorded at cost

Deferred development costs
Most use straight-line
Best reflects use of capital assets
Rogers (exception)

To estimate useful life companies use models such as:
Future usage, physical wear and tear, replacement history, and assumptions about technological evolution
Models for each company are slightly different
Change in useful life estimate
Asset depreciated over revalued useful life

Group depreciation (Bell)
Immaterial assets or similar assets grouped
Diminishes comparability

Performance and Financial Analysis
TELUS saw its operating revenue increase between 2007 and 2008

However, TELUS’ net income did decrease during this time
Rogers net income actually increased over this same time
2008-2009 Recession
Liquidity and Solvency
TELUS’ current ratio of 0.51 in 2008 was lower than the industry average of 0.76

May lead to creditors and lenders not wanting to offer credit to TELUS
TELUS has grown more dependant on long-term debt

TELUS’ debt-to-equity ratio of 1.66 is higher than the industry average of 0.81
TELUS’ operating leases, contingencies, and commitments are less than those of Bell and Rogers
From the surface it appears as though TELUS is performing well
Some evidence does suggest that TELUS is performing well in some respects
A careful analysis reveals that TELUS may not be performing as well as it appears to be, at least when compared to its competitors
