KIER GROUP plc - www.kier.co.uk

KELLER GROUP plc - www.keller.com

 

You are required to examine in detail the latest available Annual Report of each company whose name and website address is given above, in order to:

  • Calculate and comment on the Return On Capital Employed (for each year shown)
  • ·
  • Provide a comparative analysis of the businesses and their financial performance with regard to EITHER:
    • Pricing and cost management OR
    • Capital structure

 

Your submission should use relevant key financial ratios to analyse the following financial statements in the Annual Reports:

 

  • Consolidated/Group Balance Sheet (or Statement of Financial Position)
  • Consolidated/Group Income Statement (or Profit and Loss Account)

 

The behaviour of the selected ratios for both years covered by the latest annual report should be explained using appropriate references to:

 

i.Relevant Notes to the Accounts where appropriate

 

ii.Board Members reports* e.g.:

  • Chairman’s statement
  • Chief Executive Officers Review
  • Financial Directors Report / Financial review
  • Business review or equivalent

 

with specific attention being given to demonstrating your ability to relate the financial analysis to the characteristics of the two companies, their industry and market conditions and the ability to draw concise and meaningful conclusions from the analysis (occasionally some of the ratios may already be included in the annual report – you must still prepare your own calculation and comment on your own results)

* All quotes from these reports must be clearly referenced

 

Please note:

  1. All calculations must be shown and should be incorporated into the main body of the analysis
  2. Any figures used in your analysis which are not shown on the face of the main financial statements must be clearly referenced.
