How does information from financial reports influence business decision making?

How does information from financial reports influence business decision making? Why is it important for business managers to understand the information found on financial reports?|||Financial reports allow business managers to see current numbers compared to years prior. It will allow them to see growth or loss. It let's them know where the company stands in the "market place" and what percentage of consumer spending in that market place is being spent on that company. It also helps in forcasting - the fortune teller responsibility - the BM looks at the years prior and sees that an increase or decrease is approaching and can order stock more efficiently. For instance - a BM at Home Depot - he will look at financial reports to see when is the best time for snow blowers to hit stores in the New England area as opposed to the same item to hit stores in the Mid West. It also allows the producers of said snow blowers to see if they can take a price increase on the product in a given year and what time of year would it be best received by the consumers.

Hope this helps.|||what do the financial reports consist of ?
