1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
The definition of profit depends on the information needs of the company. If the underlying profitability of the business the objective review a company’s, result, then it is an operating profit. i.e gross profit less expenses.
According to Ellis (1993) says that “Financial reporting of profit provides a key measure of the performance outcome, associate with performance outcome associated with an organization strategy”. This means that before the performance of a business can be evaluated a proper profit measure approach must be operated by the organization. Therefore, the function of financial manager is to include profit planning.
The term profit planning refers to the operating decision in the area of pricing, costs, volumes of out pout and the firms selection of product brings. Profit planning is therefore a pre-requisite for optimizing investment and financing decisions (Mao and James 1969).
The major aim of establishing a business is to make profit unless adequate (net profit) are generated and used for the replacement of resources, the firm will eventually be run down., profit analysis in business have the following advantages:-
i.) It helps to increase the equity control of shareholders through retained earning.
ii.)It also helps to raise the loss absorptive capacity of the organization.
iii.)The ability of the companies to pay its dividends depends on the size of its profits.
A company should earn profits to survive and grow other a long period of time. Profits are essential, but it would be wrong to assume that every action initiated by management of company should be earned at maximizing profits, irrespective of social consequences.
Although, profits is the ultimate output of a company, and it will have no future say if it fails to make sufficient for a firm and the reporting of its in the financial statement is not just sufficient but to show the weak and strength of a real accounting system that is in the usefulness of its application rather than information or data gathering processing aspect (Paul et al, 1972).
In this view, the financial manager, should, continuously evaluate the efficient of its company as to achieve its targeted goal i.e profits. Financial statement of companies are tools which produces a means through which this evaluation can be carried out. Meaning that financial statement should be used to examine the statement of success of the business over the period.
