Prepare a comparative financial statement analysis (horizontal analysis) for each of the 15 categories/financial measures. Prepare a spreadsheet that shows all of the data, calculations, and analyses. For each of the categories/financial measures that show a difference between the two years, determine what factors could have caused the differences. Prepare a multimedia presentation, using a tool of your choosing, to present your explanation for the differences in each of the specific categories/financial measures. Please include visuals/graphs when delivering your analysis of the data! Your visual presentation should be in the range of 10 to 15 minutes.
