## Info

The common-size numbers are calculated by dividing each item by total assets for that year. For example, the 2001 common-size cash amount is $84/3,373 = 2.5%. The common-base year numbers are calculated by dividing each 2002 item by the base-year (2001) dollar amount. The common-base cash is thus $98/84 = 1.17, representing a 17 percent increase. The combined common-size and base-year figures are calculated by dividing each common-size amount by the base-year (2001) common-size amount. The cash figure is therefore 2.7%/2.5% = 1.08, representing an 8 percent increase in cash holdings as a percentage of total assets. Columns may not total precisely due to rounding.
