1. How would you assess the overall financial health of Largo Global Inc. (LGI)? You will need to provide a broad view of the main trends that emerge from your analyses of the information in tabs 2, 3, and 4. Your key findings should be synthesized and highlight a clear diagnostic of LGI’s financial strength and/or weakness. [HINT: all 5 questions are interrelated and may sometimes build on each other – it is imperative that you develop a “blue-print” or an outline of what you are answering for each question. Do not answer each question independently as if they were not connected. You should not be redundant but should make sure that you are judiciously coordinating these 5 questions. Question 1 and 5 should be providing the introduction and conclusion of your analysis. Questions 2, 3, and 4 should be providing the “body” or development of your analysis – with a focus on operations, investing, and financing]
