A free video series explaining financial statements and how to analyze them is available from The Kaplan Group through a link on the company's Web site.

The videos cover balance sheets, income and cash flow statements and more than a dozen ratios helpful for analyzing financial statements. Each ratio is explained in detail - including calculations, terms and definitions - and can be downloaded in a free eBook.

The Kaplan Group, a commercial collection agency specializing in collecting large B2B claims, believes the videos will be particularly useful to credit managers because some of the discussion is geared towards those involved in making credit decisions.

“Financial statement analysis is useful to us during the debt collection process because it makes it possible for us to understand a debtor’s ability to pay,” says Dean Kaplan, president of The Kaplan Group. “Financial statements give us the tools necessary to negotiate the best outcome for our clients. We are excited to be able to share these tools as well as our insights with a larger audience by making it available at no charge on the web.”

The basis of the videos is from programs that Kaplan has presented to credit manager groups sponsored by the National Association of Credit Management, Dun & Bradstreet and Reimer Reporting.

The Kaplan Group was founded in 1991. It has provided educational programs and materials to the credit industry for several years. To contact the company, visit info@kgaction.com or call 805-541-2639.
