Dear friend,

Businessmen are nowadays agonizing over a faltering economy in the United States, which has been affecting their confidence of doing business in Malaysia and elsewhere. Recession has already swept into the shores of Malaysia. Then, why lament?

In good times, many businessmen find it easy to run their businesses, and only in these trying times, they have to put on their thinking caps and have to surf along these tumultuous waves of uncertainties.

Managers, directors, owners, creditors and bankers have to appreciate the dynamics of a business, and there is no better ways than to apply the important tools and techniques of financial analysis in making decisions on investment, operations and financing. These people can ill-afford to ignore the fundamentals of managing their business succinctly and smoothly. They needlessly have to look after the interests and welfare of their creditors, bankers, staffs and owners, for without them, their business will quickly crumble. On the other hand, they have to unfailingly rely on these groups, not only to ride out the buckling economy, but to attain their pillar of success. The tools and techniques had proven in the past to be reliable and useful, and thus it is the objective of this facilitator to share them.
