Net Accounts Receivables % Change = ($6,912,000-$6,323,000 / 6,323,000)*100
% Change = 9.32%
Revenue % Change = ($66,504,000 -$57,838,000/57,838,000)*100
% Change = 14.98% Accounting An investor used these percent changes to directly compare companies. An investor is focusing on the percent basis of the cash brought in by the company. If revenue increases in a percent basis then accounts receivables should also increase on a percent basis. As long as the company’s uncollectibles does not also increase, cash should be increased.Pepsi's information for uncollectables was not listed.
In 2011, Coca-Cola listed that 25% of their allowance for doubtful accounts were write offs, while in 2010 37% were right offs.
The estimation of uncollectible accounts as a percent of gross accounts receivable is important to an analyst because the higher the percentage that uncollectible accounts is of gross accounts receivable means the company is not collecting all of its accounts. Therefore less cash is brought in. Inventory An analyst would want to compare the inventory and sales growth rates to see how much purchasing of inventory is being bought versus the total amount that they are selling. Uses the direct method Uses the indirect method Recommendation Continue operating as is because their sales and inventories are strong. Pepsi has also be consistent with its income statement, however it could also think of ways to increase income. Recommendation Coca-Cola should continue to operate how it is operating, however it should consider how it produced more income in 2010.
