    Description

    FRAN is a computer-based, stand-alone program designed to generate important financial and operating ratios from tax and wage forms filed with the Internal Revenue Service. FRAN generates standard profitability, financial/leverage, liquidity/solvency, and activity ratios, as well as unique measures of workforce and capital cost and acquisition. Information produced by the program is of use to bankers contemplating short-term loans, to bankers and investors contemplating extending long-term credit or taking an equity position, and to management in securing loans and evaluating operating performance.
