When performing comparable company analysis on a company with a FY other than Dec 31, what information do you actually calendarize for the company's financials (Reported Income Statement Section/Balance Sheet Data Section)?
Also if you do need to change the company's financial, couldn't you just find the exact CY sales with some basic algebra rather than using the calendarization calculation (CY sales = (Month #)(Actual Fiscal Year Sales)/12 + (12 - Month #)(Estimated Fiscal Year Sales)/12) ?
