Dear Board and Fellow ACA Members,
Here are the January 2022 Financial Statements for your review. Please bear in mind these are not audited statements and may be subject to revision later. This is the most accurate information our accountants have made available at this time.
These Financial Statements are posted on the blue ACA service website at acawso.org. Click on Board Treasurer’s Report on the side menu to view this report.
In reviewing the Balance Sheet, we can see ACA WSO ended the month with $932,223 in Total Assets. The previous month was $906,924, resulting in an increase of $25,299.
Our Total Cash and Cash Equivalents (Account 1000) increased by $3.8k. Inventory Assets (Account 1400) show a net increase of $17.5k, due to a large order of Yellow Workbooks, less the normal sell-through of Inventory.
WSO’s Total Liabilities & Equity was $923,223 at the end of the period. This is an increase of $25,299 from the previous month. Net Income for the month of January is $13,373.
Note that the Equity Section includes Restricted Net Assets, which was created as a result of the International Literature Scholarship Fund. The month of January is showing a balance of $7,236. Unrestricted Net Assets balance is $809,092.
Profit & Loss Statement – Current and Previous Month
Looking at the P&L we can see Total Income for the month was $170.1k, showing an increase of $21.1k from the prior month. Total Income includes Shopify and Amazon Sales, and 7th Tradition Contributions. Shopify sales were $63.5k, showing an increase of $15.5k from the prior month. Amazon sales were $68.7k, showing an increase of $19.6k from the prior month. Contributions from 7th Tradition will be addressed below.
The combined Cost of Goods Sold (COGS) was $100.8k which was higher than the prior month’s $78.8k COGS. This left WSO with a Gross Profit of $69.3k before operating expenses.
WSO Expenses on the P&L include payroll, overhead and operating expenses. Overall WSO Total Expenses were $55.9k this month, which were lower than the prior month by $13.0k. After deducting expenses from the Gross Profit, WSO was left with net Income of $13,373 for the month.
