The event itself does notactually change the value but merelyprovides additional information about

    conditions that e$isted at the balance sheetdate. For e$ample, the filing of a

    ban!ruptcy petition by a ma/or customerprovides additional data concerning thecollectibility of accounts receivable.

    Eotes are an integral part of financial statements, but they are often ignored by financial statement userswho assume the notes are too technical and detailed and not really relevant to decision ma!ing. Eotesdo sometimes contain fairly technical and comple$ information.

    The power"generating facilities of utilities form a large portion of their assets and are shown on thebalance sheet as plant and equipment. #owever, c9onald-s also has a great deal of plant andequipment. n fact, the balance sheets of a utility company and of a fast"food company loo! similar. nthis instance, +onsolidated 3dison is B and c9onald-s is 3.

    Gelly Services is A. Because service companies have low levels of fi$ed assets and low levels ofinventory, company A matches this profile.
