  • Evaluate trends in the performance of P. Jason Corporation. Identify

  • As the loan officer, what else would you do to gain a better
    understanding of Paul Jason’s, and the Corporation’s financial picture

  • Based on your analysis of P. Jason Corporation, will you recommend
    approval for the requested loan? Provide specific details to support
    your decision.

Format the assignment consistent with APA guidelines.
