FOREWORD


  The Bank of Korea is pleased to release the 2021 edition of its Financial Statement Analysis (FSA), published annually since 1960 to provide research on and analysis of the business performance and financial conditions of Korean corporations.


  This edition contains the financial statement analysis report for Korean corporations during 2021, the concepts behind and methods for calculating their major financial ratios, and their financial statements and major indicators, all classified by industry and by company size. In addition, quartile statistics for frequently used major indicators are also released. To facilitate cross-country comparisons, the major financial ratios as used in the U.S., Japan and Germany are also included here, as well.


  For a more in-depth analysis, the full text of this book is available at the Bank of Korea’s website (www.bok.or.kr) and at the website for its Economic Statistics System (ECOS) (http://ecos.bok.or.kr). Furthermore, the related data files can be found at the ECOS website, and major indicators are also available at the ECOS mobile website (http://ecos.bok.or.kr/mobile).


  We hope that this book will be helpful to the government sector in drawing up its economic policies, to companies in framing their business strategies, to financial institutions in assessing their credit risks, and to members of academia in conducting their research. Finally, we wish to express our sincere appreciation to all of the cooperating institutions whose efforts have helped to make this work possible.
