Brief, but Lucid Compilation of |
Figures Tells a Big Story
of Success
Perhaps no statement recently made)
In either the news or the advertising I
columns of newspapers, has created
more discussion than that contained in|
the recent Iteo announcement that "The j
Heo Motor Car Company is, financially,
the second strongest in the world.' I
In order to give readers a chance:
to analyze the situation for themselves,
the editor of one of the leading- auto- |
mobile trade journals aslced Mr. Don
ald K. Bates, secretary-treasurer of the!
lieo company, if he had any objection!
to publishing a statement on the com-j
panv's condition.
"Not the least." laughed the financial ,
guardian of tin big Lansing concern,
"in fact we rather welcome the sug
gestion just at this time when our in
nocent announcement of what we con
sidered the obvious has created such a
"We liuve never be fore referred to:
hese matter in .'Act we have per-1
..il>s too carefully avoided any men-,
lion of our financial resources. For'
example, if you've noticed the stock
■ imitations of late you have doubtless
observed that Heo is quoted at around
2'.'. From that It would appear that
the securities of this company are
about on a par with some of the weak- j
er ones whose 'common' is quoted at'
about the same figure. Now the dif- |
ference is here, lleo par value is 10—|
not the usual 100. So the '22' really |
means 220.
"Here Is our statement compiled at |
the end of our last fiscal year, October!
31. 1914. Parenthetically, I should
mention that the period covered was
fourteen months—due to the chang
ing at our last stockholders' meeting,
of the date of our llscnl year frcm
August 31 to October 31.

"Now we need not have mentioned
that—some wouldn't if we may judge
from important omissions in statements
they habitually give out.
"Which brings us to a very import
ant matter—the correct Interpretation
of a financial statement, ft is remark
able how few can correctlv read mil
diagnose a financial statement.
Here the editor interrupted, "En-:
lighten a poor journalist on that mat-1
tor —if you make it understandable to!
onn not so familiar with accounting!
and audits. Tin chief thing I notice |
about this Roo statement Is its brevity
—the few heads under which you class)
the various 'assets' and •liabilities.' Is
there any significance in that?"
_ "Yes—r suppose there is." said Jlr. I
Bates. "You see It was prepared, not I
the publication, but for our sharehold-I
ers none of whom want to dispose i.fl
their Iteo holdings. So It" aim was to
be lucid.
"Now you could subdivide the vari- i
ous items almost ad infinitum and I
I hopelessly befuddle the average reader 1
| —-if there was anything to bo gained]
by so doing—as for example, to in
fluence the stock market so present I
holders could >ret from under.
"Yet, after all it is easy even for,
the tyro to get a pretty accurate estl- '
mate of the most elaborate financial !
statement. The rule is 'Look for for
the Joker.'
"Of course it is impossible for anv
one hut nil expert to ferret out all the
jokers but tlu-re are some any one can
see if he but looks.
♦ '* that indefinite
tiling; Good W til which generally Is
Kiven a very definite valuation when
there Is a gap to be Hlle.l or a deficit
to be offset.
"Other similar Items made to per
form similar service are Patents' and
Trade Mark. 'Trade Na"ie.' etc., which
usually account for another large lump
of over canitalization.
"It would bo too much to say that
patents, froodwill and trademark con
stitute liabilities—but certain it is they
do not beloner among* the 'assets.' \*n
banker would so consider thorn. Yet
they very often masquerade as such.
'So If you want to arrive at the
truth, or near It. just take the Item

could be elucidated and made much
stronger even than it is.
"(•'or example: Some concerns habit
ually put down in inventory under
'jigs, tools, fixtures, patterns, dies,
etc.." the original cost of those special
tools whereas, the model to which alone
they are applicable is no longer cur
rent. Their value is therefore nil—or
tlvc per ient. at most. Our 'ultra con
servative' policy does not admit of that.
"And If you looked deeper you'd find
that In the item 'merchandise,' mean
ing manufactured automobile parts and
materials, only those parts pertaining
to current models are listed at full cost.
I'arts of 1913 models are inventoried at
only r.o per cent, and those of earlier
models the demand for replacement
parts for which is still active at one
third while obsolete materials and
i tools are scrapped Instantly,
j "Of course such items only the ex
pert auditor who lias access to uVery
thing can discover in an Inventory."
i Asked for a few ligures that would
i indicate the tremendous success of this
i concern whose conservatism lias here-
I tofore been known as its most prom
! inent characteristic, Mr. Bates gave out
: the following astounding figures:
"111 tile ten years since its organiza
j tion the lteo company has paid to its
I shareholders dividends amounting to
I 1 «25 I-10 per cent, of its original capi
| tallzallon.
| "Yet the policy, and especially of late
1 years, lias been to keep so much money
. 111 the company that it can at all times
finance itself without having to ,|e
pend 011 the banks—a policy that \ in
dicated itself to a superlative degree
