Part 1 - Introductory Financial Accounting (MM1F2)

Assessed Work 2

Title: Ratio Analysis Report of Marks and Spencer plc

Name: Andrew Powell

Course: Business Management & Administration

Date: 14th March 2005

Abstract: This following report has been put forward to show the decline in the Marks and Spencer share price during the past years. The report will show deterioration in the financial aspects of the company's operations between January 1998 and August 2000, before a steady improvement is made until March 2002 when share price once again drops. Furthermore, the report should show speculation following Philip Green's first offer to buyout the company immediately raises the share price of Marks and Spencer. Also, changes in related ratios will be exposed along with possible strategic business reasons why the company has encountered so many difficulties during the past few years.
