Grandpa Sun Chu lives by the Confucian proverb, β€œHe who wished to secure the good of others, has already secured his own.” He wants to be known more for his impact on the world than his business acumen at the Chu Group and so created the SES Foundation to serve underprivileged children. His grandson Sun Chu has graduated from college and will be joining the organization. Grandpa Chu wants him to learn the most important lessons in life first, so he has asked him to assess the financial status of the SES Foundation. Students are asked to put themselves in the shoes of the protagonist and construct a set of financial statements, compute for common-sized statement, compute for financial ratios, and evaluate the financial status of the foundation. There is an interesting twist in the conclusion to the case.

Teaching Objectives

  • Construct a set of financial statements.
