debtors to $23,458,355 aswell as the decrease in stock to $16,450,560. Cash and
cash equivalents increased from $15,469,535 to $15,997,688 and the shows that
the input on cash and cahs equivalents is being managed well. High cash
reserves can also signal that the company is “saving up” to make some
significant acquisition.

property, plant and equipment. The expenses also went high from $3292280 to
$4613970.

did not effect the total of current liabilities because it increased from
$48,746,473 to $49,410,010.

·        
The
non-current liabilities especially the long term borrowings effected the
decrease of the total liabilities from $60,852,104 down to $59,214,186.

·        
Good to note
that debentures in 2014 increased by $42,570.

of the equity from 2013 to 2014 where from $142,505,946 equity has increased to

fact that expenses such as selling and administrative expenses where on the
decrease by $1,243,686, this still did not effect the profit before tax for the
year of $26,479,560 which is less than that of 2013.

$22,223,194 less than the $28,949,145 of 2013.

earnings per share for profit also decreased from $187.94 to $145.44

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

·        

Total dividends for 2014 where
$2,119,527. This amount shows an interesting increase from 2013 since on that
year the total amount of dividends was $1,186,262. This increase is interesting
because besides that the profit decreased from 2013, Samsung plc offered a
higher amount of dividends than that of 2013. The reason of this could be that
the number of shareholders increased.

particular interest for Samsung.
