Part 1: El Cap Climbing Company
El Cap Climbing Company (ECCC) is a small startup that manufactures and sells high-quality climbing gear in Fresno, California. The founder of the company, Leah, has been incredibly successful, but hasn’t kept the company’s financial records as well as she might have. The initial investment for El Cap was provided by her friends and family, and was small. However, current operations can’t meet the demand for the product, and Leah has plans to increase both production and the number of storefronts. These plans require a large investment from both equity and debt financing. The new investors and creditors require detailed financial statements. Leah has hired you, a financial analyst, to prepare these statements and give insight into the financial position of the firm. Leah has provided information from her bank statements, bills, and receipts in an Excel spreadsheet, which is found in your downloaded project files.
She explained to you that taxes are paid at a rate of 30 percent, and dividends are paid at a rate of 40 percent.

A balance sheet for 2015 and a balance sheet for 2016
