2. Outline the three most important points – in your opinion – to emerge from your Common Size Consolidated Income Statements. You should write about 3-5 sentences per individual point (5 sentences is the absolute maximum).
Common size consolidated income statement analysis:
1. Vodafone should take necessary actions to manage the negative values regarding profits before interest and tax figures through 2013 ~ 2014, also working more on their net profit is very important since the big improvement happened in 2014 was a result of selling assets in united states, so they need to work harder on their operating profits.

2. Vodafone should take necessary actions to reduce the overall cost of goods sold as one of main elements to increase the net profit and this can be done by finding more suppliers who could provide Vodafone with better prices or at least variety of products with different prices based on the service nature. 3. Vodafone has clear issue due to impairment loss percentage starting from 2012 then big change by almost the double in 2013 then smaller percentage through 2014 which is raising a big question regarding the long term investment strategy for Vodafone.

3. Draw up a Common Size Consolidated Statement of Financial Position for Vodafone for 2012, 2013 and 2014. You should base your work on the Smith and Nephew class example. The Consolidated Statement of Financial Position itself is on page 98 of the Vodafone report. You do not need to look at prior year annual reports – the comparative figures given on that page are sufficient.
