This study identifies whether this company has a strong financial fundamentals and whether investment in the company will be of a long term nature. Its financial statements had been analysed during 5 year period (2004 – 2008).

The analysis will cover company’s recent financial position, performance and cash flow, including liquidity; profitability; short-term asset management; risk; leverage and capital structure; and trend and horizontal analysis over the last five years. It shows that the past financial position, performance and cash flow have no guarantee for future performance.
