CHAPTER ONE 
 
1.0 INTRODUCTION 
 
1.1 Background of the Study 
 The complex nature of today’s business world and the transformation of the entire world into a global village have been of great concerns to manages of all forms of business organizations.  According to Ojuigo (2001), the problems of managers are multi:varied because of inefficiency in management of poor decision outcomes of these organizations.  Therefore, the managers are unable to achieve the organizational objective within a period of time. 
 As diverse as business is, its controllable and uncontrollable factors influence all decisions which ultimately lead to the realization of set objectives.  To achieve this, management needs reliable, authentic and relevant information from the financial statements to efficiently facilitate decision making. It must be noted that every business stores at making at least from investments “sustainable profits” so as to stay afloat and continue in business.  Therefore, profit being the concern of every manager is a factor in business.  To achieve this, available information from the financial statements of organizations must be analysed, interpreted and used as a basis for decision making (Needham and Dransfield 1991).  Financial statement analysis is often considered as a vital tool used in evaluating a company’s performance and ensuring that decisions are based on facts rather than rule of thumb.
