You can discuss your answers with the group prior to turning in the assignment.

 

Hand in a printout of the ratio page (see tab below) and a printout of this instruction sheet with your completed answers.

 

(You are not required to type your answers but you may type and highlight your answers.)

 

A. Obtain the most recent annual financial report (10-K) for Miller Herman using EDGAR.gov at:

Under Company Ticker enter MLHR for Herman Miller

 

Locate the most recent 10-K report and click the Interactive Data link on the web page then click Financial Statements.

 

B. Use MLHR's 10-K annual report from Edgar.com to find Financial Information for Common Size analysis

 

1. Click on the Income Statement tab below and fill in the information from Consolidated Statements of Operations in Edgar.gov

 

to fill in the highlighted area of the spreadsheet. Note use the previous year's information to guide you.

 

Notice the footnote on the bottom of the Income Statement regarding Depreciation Expense.

 

2. Click on the Balance Sheet tab below and fill in the information from Consolidated Balance Sheet from Edgar.gov.

 

C. Answer the following questions regarding Herman Miller.

 

1. DuPont Analysis is a great place to start the analysis, because it shows how three major areas interact to determine ROE.

 

(Hint: Click the Ratios tab below to fill in the appropriate ratios to compare MLHR to the industry.

 

2. What component(s) is(are) improving MLHR's ROE relative to the industry average? (highlight your answer(s))

 

3. Based on this DuPont analysis which of the following areas are strengths for MLHR? (could be more than one)

 

4. Based on this DuPont analysis which of the following areas are weaknesses for MLHR? (could be more than one)

 

5. How long is the operating cycle for MLHR for the most recent year ending financial information? (See Ratio Page)

 

6. How long is the cash cycle for MLHR for the most recent year ending financial information? (See Ratio Page)

 

7. Is the length of the operating cycle a strength or weakness for MLHR compared to the industry?

 

Why? - Answer Succinctly

 

8. If MLHR's cash cycle increases significantly it would need to:

 

9. Look at the trends over the past 5 years for the following ratio categories. Identify whether the trend is improving,

 

deteriorating, or neither. (For ratios that fluctuate over time compare 5 years ago with the most recent year.) 10. What account causes the current ratio to be smaller than the industry and the quick ratio to be similar to the industry?

 

11. Does the amount of time it takes Herman Miller to pay it?s suppliers appear to be a problem?

 

(Hint: compare their ratios to the industry)

 

12. When comparing the assets on the balance sheet to industry averages, what account should the analyst question? 13. What was MLHR's Net Working Capital for the last two years (omit 000's)? 14. How big a factor would you say market conditions played on the performance of MLHR over the past 10 years?

 

15. Suppose MLHR doubled the amount of time to pay trade creditors. Use the proforma sheet to indicate the impact on the financial

 

statements. (Start with the identical parameters indicated on Ratio page for previous year for Inv, AR, and AP and then double Days Payable.)

 

What are the new plug figure to make the balance sheet balance? State answer omitting the last 000,000's consistent with proforma.

 

(Note one plug is always zero for cells D28 and D41 on the Proforma Spreadsheet)

 

16. Suppose MLHR Days Payable is at the same level as the prior year. Use the proforma sheet to indicate the impact on the financial

 

statements assuming Days Sales Outstanding and Days in Inventory both double, causing the operating cycle to double in length.

 

What are the new plug figure to make the balance sheet balance? State answer omitting the last 000,000's consistent with proforma.

 

(Note one plug is always zero for cells D28 and D41 on the Proforma Spreadsheet)

 

17. Using the same parameters as in question 16, what is the proforma Net Income (Loss) (omitting 000,000's)?

 

18. Suppose all parameter estimates are based on last years results, except Sales is expected to grow at 25%.

 

What would be the impact on Net Income and the Plugs? (Note omit 000,000's and one of the plugs is always zero.) 19. Assuming MLHR is expecting a 25% increase in Sales and they have the plant capacity, what should they do now to prepare for this?

 

Discussion Question: Summarize your advise to management of MLHR based on inferences gained from this common size analysis. Fill in your answers in the yellow Boxes below.
