# Financial Analysis and Valuation (FIN103) Assignment 3: Company

Background information

For this assignment you are required to evaluate the quality of JB HiFi’s (JBH’s) earnings, calculate and analyse market performance ratios related to JBH, and prepare a report in which you are required to provide an investment recommendation for JBH.

For the purposes of your analysis and discussion for questions 1, 2 and 4, ignore post balance date events at JBH (i.e. post 30 June 2017 events). In other words, your responses to questions 1, 2 and 4 should be based on JBH’s performance up to 30 June 2017. However, for Question 3, do not ignore any dividends that were declared post 30 June 2017 that relate to JBH’s financial year ended 30 June 2017.

Show all workings for any ratio calculations in your answers. Your workings and answers should be rounded (unless otherwise stated in a question) to the same extent that JBH has rounded amounts in its 2017 Financial Statements. For example, JBH’s total assets of \$2,452.3 million as at 30 June 2017 would be shown in the assignment as \$2,452.3 million.

Consistent with Assignment 2, assume that the only significant items in FY2017 were as follows:

transaction fees and implementation costs of \$22.4 million pre-tax (\$15.7 million post tax) associated with the acquisition of The Good Guys

goodwill and fixed asset impairment charges relating to JBH New Zealand of \$15.8 million pre-tax (\$11.1 million post-tax).

Assume that the current market price (CMP) for JBH at 30 June 2017 is \$23.37.

Assume that the FY 2017 price/earnings ratio for the ASX Consumer Discretionary sector is 12.8 times (x), while the FY2017 dividend yield for this sector is 4.1%.
