Project Description:

OverviewA critical financial-accounting skill is the ability to read, analyze, and make actionable determinations from any financial statement. Business leaders gain valuable information from the analysis of their direct competitors as well as organizations that operate in similar fields.Instructions You are the CFO of a small company that provides consulting services in the automotive industry. Your clients include suppliers, dealer networks and a number of other companies investing and operating in the sector. Many of your clients believe the industry is on the verge of a significant disruption led by newcomers like Tesla with its approach to both electric-powered vehicles and with steps it has taken to change the traditional dealer model. Your CEO will meet with several key clients over the next few weeks and has requested an analysis reviewing Tesla’s most recent annual report and comparing that to the most recent report from one of the traditional automakers – General Motors.Telsa Annual Report 2016http://ir.tesla.com/secfiling.cfm?filingid=1564590-16-13195&cik=1318605General Motors Annual Report 2016https:// an executive summary you would feel comfortable turning in to your CEO that is no more than 2 pages, single-spaced using 12-point Times New Roman font.
