Week5Discussion1Response

Instruction for Week 5 Discussion 1 Response only (This is not for week 5 Discussion 2)Please Read First This If this peer was your employee, how would you help them advance their career based on their completed IDP? Review their completed IDP and their explanation before responding. Respond to the following questions and please remember to be professional with your feedback. Do not forget, you are taking the role of their superior here and your feedback should show them you are committed to their growth as an employee.What additional training or ideas do you have regarding how they can achieve each of their developmental goals? Make sure to provide ideas for each goal individually. If you need to, do some research to give them additional ideas to consider.How else can they use their strengths listed to achieve their goals?Based on their justification for their goals, is there any other commentary or idea you have for them as their superior?Below are the Two Discussion needed response (Follow the instruction above to guide your responds)This is the first Discussion by David GeusenMy five strengths from the CliftonStrength Results assessment are Input, Intellection, Restorative, Achiever, and Learner. When assessing my individual development plan (IDP) I thought about what job title I wanted next in my company. Liablity claims manager (LCM) is the next position that I hope to achieve however it should be a good amount of years until then. To be an LCM I need to have more background with premise liability claims as well as litigation experience. I built my development goals based on these two building blocks in my career.Two opportunities revealed in my IDP are time management and support from peers and upper management. Time management is the biggest hurdle in obtaining my developmental goals because of a various amount of reasons. The first being that all the activities are outside my scope of normal duties. My current position is to help develop and lead field claim representatives. To obtain these goals I will need to focus on trainings and court hearings outside of what I normally do. My Clifton Strength “achiever” should help me overcome these obstacles because I have a constant need for achievement. I will not settle with a current role during my tenure with the company. The only option is up.The other opportunity is obtaining support from peers and upper management. This is not because they are unavailable or do not create an environment for career progression, they are the extreme opposite. When it comes to dealing with litigated and complex injury/fatality cases the amount of peer support lessens to people in virtual roles that are not easily reached. I will need to reach out and form a professional relationship over time. My Clifton Strength “Input” will help overcome this obstacle because I have the tendency to ask a lot of questions and collect information. The more people I reach out to for case outcomes and verdicts, the more I will become immersed in the specific field.Individual Development Plan.pdfThis is the Second discussion from Kyle JablonskiMy Top 5 CliftonStrengths Results:CompetitionIndividualizationRelatorAnalyticalSignificanceThe first opportunity I have personally been working on is competition. Although many may see this as a glaring strength, for me personally it does lead to some issues. Getting hyper-focused on the task at hand, sometimes I do forget that there are other people that do exist. Sometimes I do forget that I can bring other people into a project as well instead of powering through by myself. Also, at points, life becomes a checklist of getting things done. Taking a step back, slowing down and looking at the reasoning why behind something can have tremendous value.The other opportunity is analytical, while this trait can certainly be useful, it does take the human factor out of the equation where 1 plus 1 doesn’t always equal 2. There are points in time where I have analyzed data and prepared and made a plan around that data and something happens where the plan is no longer valid. The opportunity to adjust on the fly is something that I have had to do in my current role and throughout my life.Competition: This is my drive when I am bored I set up miniature competitions against myself. I thoroughly enjoy being in the heat of the moment and I know myself, I am willing to pay a high price to win out against the competition and obtain a goal I have set for myself. I believe this comes from the drive of hating to lose.Individualization: This trait will aid in creating separation from other candidates and fellow co-workers. Having the ability to instinctively do or create something unique adds value to an organization.Relator: This is a large value add for establishing and furthering relationships with agencies and the people I meet from those agencies. Being able to find commonality with an organization is one of the primary skills needed in the business world. This also applies internally as well, creating relationships with people from different departments allows for 2-way communication.Analytical: This skill enables the ability to research and inspect data not just to know what the metrics are, but to also see trends and have a deeper insight into what may happen in the future. Being able to look at data and make different adjustments when looking at a future date in order for a better outcome is where the real value is.Significance: This trait can be seen as a significant disadvantage, but this is the main driver to stand out, possibly do something big or take a calculated risk that would benefit the organization. The need to stand out means that details sometimes need to be paid a little closer attention to in order to stand out from others.The job description I used is the Regional Vice President of distribution. These goals with my strongest attributes, looked at in a positive light will allow me to:Continuously improve, whether it be metrically or my soft skills (Competition) along with continuously setting goals to further better my situation.Create marketing strategies and sales ideas to stand out, not just from external competition, but internal competition as well (Individualization). It will allow me to become an out of the box thinker to separate myself.I need to be able to make connections with every person I meet so that a person wants to sell our products (Relator). Being able to relate to that individual or on stage with an organization is a main portion of the role.There are a lot of moving parts in the life insurance and finance world and distribution reflects these changes as well (Analytical). Being able to look at trends and predict ups and downs, and being able to analytically find why the lows are happening and make corrections if a huge asset to the RVP role.The drive to have something unique and a different story to tell is something that comes from within (Significance). Having a purpose or a cause is contagious and people can feel that energy. This is a difference-maker when in a room with a group of different careers.

Writing and Sharing an Executive Summary (Wal-Mart)For this discussion: Explain the collaboration issues your (Wal-Mart) selectedcompany is facing in GSCM. Evaluate the various collaborative choices for GSCMthat the companycould choose. Use the supply chain management collaboration evaluation tool to evaluate the collaborations of the company. Develop an executive summary for the managers of supply chain management at the company, explaining the issues you found with the supply chain management collaborations. Do these collaborations appear to be following best practices? Is there a balance between regions, collaboration types, and supplier types? What changes would you suggest that could improve the situation, if needed? How does your company oversee quality and share information with their suppliers? Your initial post must include all the assigned readings and must be 250–600 words in length. Remember to list your references in current APA format at the end of your post.Side Notes: ReadingsUse yourGlobal Logistics and Supply Chain Managementtextto read the following:Chapter 3, “Supply Chain Relationships,”pages 34–56.Unit 2Top of FormBottom of FormSupply Chain RelationshipsINTRODUCTIONIn this unit, you will learn about the risks and benefits of outsourcing and how to make good choices in outsourcing for your company. You will learn about the many factors that need to be considered in this decision that can make the yes-or-no decision of outsourcing extremely complicated. Simply focusing on the bottom line is insufficient to provide enough data for this decision. Often the obvious issue is the labor cost because that is a major factor in the costing of a product; up to 80 percentof product cost can be labor. However, do not forget that the supply chain itself is a cost, not counted as a product cost normally, and this is often not considered well in the analysis of outsourcing. For example, if you have a 2-week pipeline today for your domestic supply chain, extending your supply chain to China can mean an 8-week transportation delay. This means your pipeline inventory will increase four timesthe current size and the time to payment can be delayed by 2–3 months, consequently increasing inventory and reducing cash flow immediately. Despite looking at the bottom line, this is not a well-understood issue by finance managers with no experience in supply chain management. If you have a highly variable demand profile, your inventory may even increase moreto deal with the variance. When you add theft of product in transit at high levels and losses due to shipping containers that fall off ocean freighters, the costs and risks can begin to reduce the attractiveness of the outsourcing plan. Careful consideration of all the factors is extremely important. This is further complicated in the international arena because you now have country risk factors to consider along with company risk factors.While there is no one method nor easy choices, there are some best practices for determining the best choice for your company. Consider that necessity of good record keeping and sharing of information between suppliers and your companyfor the supply chain to operate effectively.

1st discussion post1. Why is it suggested to “fail early” when considering strategic development, implementation, and strategic management?It is suggested to fail early when considering strategic development, implementation and management in order to conserve resources. Blaire (2012) implies that it’s important to fail early in order to create opportunities to develop an adjusted strategy sooner than later. This brings the light the greater importance of monitoring development and implementation of the strategy. One way organizations can observed, monitor, and implement new strategies is by using the OODS loop (Observe, Orient, Decide, Act). This four-step approach to decision-making that focuses on filtering available information, putting it in context and quickly making the most appropriate decision while also understanding that changes can be made as more data becomes available.2. What are strategic risks and how do they relate to strategic performance?Strategic risks manifest themselves when businesses fail in their development of a strategy. Blair (2012) points our seven strategic risks that can greatly influencing strategic performance of a business. They include margin squeeze, technological shifts, brand erosion, competitive threats, market stagnation and customer preferences. They are related to strategic performance because they are Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s) of how a business is implanting their strategy. If a business is not performing well in one of the above mentioned indicators, they were wrong in their assessment or something has changed. In both cases, they need to adjust their strategy.3. What are controls and how are controls utilized to measure performance?Controls are ways to measure success or failure and tell you if you need to adjust something. As mentioned in question 2, KPI’s are controls; they tell you how well you are doing and if you need to adjust something. Controls are used to establish whether predetermined performance metrics are achieved or not. A example of this in my own life is when I’m writing offers on real estate. I know that for every one hundred offers that I write I will have four accepted. When I see deviation in this KPI and it drops below 4%, I know that the market has shifted and I need to examine my offer contingencies and adjust them. The most recent adjustment that I have had to make is by removing my inspection clause. The market will not bare the inspection contingencies clause at this time because the supply of the types of properties that I’m buying are currently low; and the seller knows that they can sell without going through the trouble.

Why is it suggested to “fail early” when considering strategic development, implementation, and strategic management?2. What are strategic risks and how do they relate to strategic performance?3. What are controls and how are controls utilized to measure performance?It suggested to “fail early” when considering strategic development, implementation, and strategic management because an organization, specifically in monitoring, the strategy, should not wait long term to see if it is working or not. In monitoring the strategy, and if the strategy is failing or had failed, this will allow the organization to revisit and an alternative strategy previously assessed, or identity and implement a new strategy that may yield success. In addition, monitoring the strategy will allow the organization to ensure it is meeting the goals of functions it was meant to achieve because if it is not its survival is unlikely (Cook, 2012).If something goes wrong with the selected strategy, the organization should be proactively ensuring that it is either working or if not, there should be measures in place to swiftly counteract or change the trajectory of the existing strategy or another which can be set in motion to achieve a better position having hopefully accounted for strategic risks via some sort of recovery approach.Strategic risks are areas that can affect an organization peformance because of business decisions that are failing. Some of the risks that could affect an organization’s implemented strategy or strategies are identified when a SWOT analysis is performed. In performing a SWOT analysis or even an IFE or EFE, the analyzation of internal and external factors, and then assessing those factors to make judgments and strategic decisions (Virtual Strategist, 2008). Examples are competitor threats, changes in technology, consumer demand or needs, issues with branding, issues in innovation, legal or regulation chances, operations, competencies, or risks associated with mergers and acquisitions (Cook, 2012).These variables can affect an organization’s position, reputation, and profitability if they are not addressed or assessed properly. Risks in development, implementation, and planning can be detected when the organization has evaluation and control measures in place to mitigate said risks with a strategy for corrective action.Concerning controls, these are regulations in which ensure all activities concerning the performances align with the organization’s goals or in tracking strategies which allow employees from top to bottom to have an indication as to what needs to be done without carelessness or simply allowing things that are not working to continue (Leconte, 2019). These regulations can affect the corporate, functional, or operational levels. The goal is to make sure that in the long run, the organization’s strategic direction is successful also accounting for what people should be doing as the process continues. Controls are measured by setting realistic expectations that can be measured which can include financial controls, output or operations control, and behavior controls as examples. Also, monitoring results in addition to feedback or a balanced scorecard which allows management to track and mitigate performance activities (Cook, 2012).Controls and measuring said controls are of great value and importance in business as again, it allows the organization to make sure it meets the strategies and goals in which they want to succeed. If succeeding is not a viable option, in strategically measuring and monitor various areas, if something is working, great, if not, then the organization can proactively make strategic decisions for recovery or alternative implementation.Best,RJReferencesCook,B.

YouTube.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NfKLoGZiR4s&feature=youtu.be3rd discussion postIt is suggested to “fail early” when considering strategic development, implementation and management because it gives you the opportunity to develop a new strategy sooner rather than later (Executive Finance, 2012). Failing earlier allows for the executives to make corrective actions and stop the process before more time, money and resources are sunk into a failing scheme. Identifying the strategy as a failure earlier on allows for the opportunity to implement either the corrective actions to that strategy that are identified as weak points or it allows for the opportunity for the secondary or tertiary strategy to take flight. This can ultimately help the business in the long run because the resources saved from realizing the failing strategy earlier on can be redirected and not wasted to allow for the next strategy to be implemented.Strategic risks can be identified as technology shifts, competitive threats and customer priority shifts (Executive Finance, 2012). Strategic risks play a large role in strategic performance because if these risks are not taken into consideration any type of strategy will fail or at the least be hindered. For instance, technology shift such as the implementation of internet usage in almost every business today. If a company is to develop a strategy to compete with their competitors and does not take into consideration how the competition uses the internet or how the industry has adopted the internet the strategy will fail. Implementing a strategy that acknowledges the strategic risks and how it can hinder or help the company allows for the strategy to have a fair chance at succeeding.Controls involve minimum amount of information and monitor only meaningful activities and results. Controls are designed so that the measurement can be obtained in order to improve that aspect of the system. The aspect needs to have a predetermined outcome in order to see if the change has hindered or improved the outcome. Controls are important to measuring performance because it is a way in which a small change can have great effects or seeing if a large change will have minimum effects. Being able to monitor what these controls manipulate within the process allows for sound decision to be made when trying to improve the system.-JonReferences:Executive Finance.

Project3AnalyzingFinancialReports

Project 3: Analyzing Financial Reports Start Here You have made good progress on the Choice Hotels project. Frank Marinara says“Because of your good work with our client, Choice Hotels, they would like us to continue working with them on a new project. Since this is more challenging than what you did previously in an individual capacity, I am assigning you to a team that will work on this project. I will send over the project details to your team via email.” INBOX (1 NEW EMAIL)From: Frank Marinara, Director of FinanceTo: You and Your Team MembersChoice Hotels would now like MCS to complete a financial statement comparison with their largest competitor, Marriott International. I need your team to compare Choice Hotels’ 10-K reports that we gathered in the last project with Marriott International’s 10-K reports. The team will need to complete a vertical financial statement analysis using the 10-K reports from Choice Hotels and Marriott.Choice Hotels is exploring ABC cost allocation. They have asked your team to complete the task of allocating overhead to the cost of hotel rooms.We will need to look at Choice Hotels’ latest 10-K report and Press Release in order to complete a budget and revenue forecast.Finally, all team members will attend a meeting with other MCS’s finance and accounting analysts to discuss the pros and cons of the strategies of the two firms.I will need all of the above assignments done within two weeks and suggest you begin right away.Really proud of your efforts here,FrankClick Step 1 to get started!When your team submits the project, the work will be evaluated using the competencies listed below. Your team can use the list below to check the team’s work before submission.1.3: Provide sufficient, correctly cited support that substantiates the writer’s ideas.1.6: Follow conventions of Standard Written English.3.1: Identify numerical or mathematical information that is relevant in a problem or situation.3.2: Employ mathematical or statistical operations and data analysis techniques to arrive at a correct or optimal solution.3.3: Analyze mathematical or statistical information, or the results of quantitative inquiry and manipulation of data.3.4: Employ software applications and analytic tools to analyze, visualize, and present data to inform decision-making.4.1: Lead and/or participate in a diverse group to accomplish projects and assignments.4.2: Demonstrate the ability to plan and execute a project, articulating clear objectives and goals for the team.4.3: Contribute to team projects, assignments, or organizational goals as an engaged member of a team.4.4: Demonstrate diversity and inclusiveness in a team setting.10.2: Analyze financial statements to evaluate and optimize organizational performance.10.3: Determine optimal financial decisions in pursuit of an organization’s goals.10.5: Develop operating forecasts and budgets and apply managerial accounting techniques to support strategic decisions.12.1: Assess market risk and opportunity.13.1: Identify and analyze new opportunities.Step 1: Complete Team Agreement As you adjust to your role, Frank tells you that this project will give you a chance to get to know your new colleagues on the accounting team. The deadlines and requests posed by Choice Hotels necessitate a team-based approach to ensure a timely output without sacrificing quality.Before you get started, your team will need to decide how the project responsibilities will be divided to ensure timely completion of the work. Frank needs your team to complete ateam agreement and work planbefore you begin, which will act as an agreement among team members stating how the work will be completed.As you start Week 5 of this course, submit the team agreement and work plan to the submission folder located in the final step of this project. Then click Step 2 to begin your work.Step 2: Compare Business Performance Using Financial Statements Choice Hotels International (NYSE: CHH) would like to know how their market share compares with Marriott International (NASDAQ: MAR), their most significant competitor in North America. This comparison will help Choice Hotels develop a strategy to gain a competitive advantage over Marriott.Your team will first need to complete a financial statement analysisof both Choice Hotels and Marriott International.Dialogue with Frank Marinara“Use the Choice Hotels 10-K reports we gathered in the last project and compare them with Marriott International’s 10-K reports,” Frank tells your team. The team will need to find Marriott’s 10-K reports the same way you did for Choice Hotels, by accessing the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) website.Frank continues, “Choice has asked for advice on attracting new investors. Your team needs to complete a vertical analysis by comparing financial reports of the two companies.” Frank recommends using financial ratios for analysis and cost-volume-profit analysis concepts for this task. “I will email the team an Excel Workbook to complete for this project.”INBOX (1 NEW EMAIL)From: Frank Marinara, Director of FinanceTo: You and Your TeamFor this assignment, please complete the Project 3 Excel Workbook with information from the income statement, balance sheet, and statement of cash flow portions of Choice Hotels’ and Marriott International’s 10-K reports. The file contains instructions, an income statement template, balance sheet template, a cash flow template, and a template for the forecast. I have also posed questions for your team to answer so I can provide Choice Hotels with suggestions on improving their financial performance.Thanks,FrankAttachments:Choice Hotels Workbook.xlsxAnswer the associated questions on the Income Statement, Balance Sheet, and Cash Flow worksheets within the Project 3 Excel Workbook to help Choice Hotels make sound investment decisions. When your team has finished, submit the workbook to the submission folder located in the final step of this project. Your team should aim to complete the entire project by Week 6.The team should have at least two team members check every calculation and read the entire report for consistency.Now that you have completed Step 1, proceed to Step 2, where your team will analyze potential investment decisions.Step 3: Analyze Cost and Investment Decisions Choice Hotels is interested in bolstering their assets and improving their costing model to account for these assets. Choice Hotels has been building their own guest rooms and selling them to their franchise owners. The company allocates overhead costs equally to each guest room and prices them to achieve a greater profit on the higher-priced rooms. Choice Hotels is concerned that this traditional costing model may not be accurately assigning costs. For example, the selling price of one of its guest rooms, “Presidential Suite”, may not be covering its true cost. You and your team will need to applyactivity-based costing (ABC)to advise Choice Hotels on resolvingthe company’s costing issue with the Presidential Suite guest room.Also, your team will need to understand the concepts of production cost allocation, and breakeven to compare costing models. Two cost allocation methods of production are under consideration by Choice Hotels. Frank needs your team’s help in determining if overhead cost allocation (Choice’s traditional model) or ABC (a new model) is bettwe for their business.Using the same Project 3 Excel Workbook your team used in Step 1, complete the Cost and Investing worksheet. The worksheet contains information that will aid in comparing the cost allocation methods for building guest rooms for Choice Hotels’ franchise owners. When your team has finished, submit the workbook to the submission folder located in the final step of this project.Then proceed to Step 3, where your team will develop a budget and forecase for Choice Hotels.Step 4: Complete a Budget and Forecast Frank recently informed your team that Choice Hotels also needs assistance in creating next year’s budget and developing revenue forecasts. Choice Hotels recently acquired a new hotel brand. This recent acquisition needs to be taken into consideration as your team develops the forecast. Choice Hotels recently held a press conference where the company disclosed their full-year guidance. Your team will need to use this information to develop their budget and forecast.Using the same Project 3 Excel Workbook your team used in Steps 2 and 3, complete the Budget and Forecast worksheet. When your team has finished, submit the workbook to the submission folder located in the final step of this project during Week 5.Now that your team has completed Step 4, proceed to Step 5, where you will discuss strategy with other finance and accounting analysts.Step 5: Discuss Strategy Discussion with ColleaguesEarlier, Frank mentioned you would need to attend a meeting with other finance and accounting analysts at MCS to discussthe differences in strategy between Choice Hotels and Marriott. Both companies have a BBB debt rating from Standard & Poor’s. This is the lowest investment grade rating and indicates that both companies have been aggressive with growth, finance, and Treasury Stock purchases.Discuss the differences in strategy related to business growth, finance, and Treasury Stock purchases.Discuss the similarities in strategy.Discuss any strategy recommendations for Choice Hotels’ management.During Week 6, submit one original posting of at least 250 words in the“Comparing Choice and Marriott”Discussion by Saturday and post two responses of at least 50 words each to other discussion participants by Tuesday.This discussion is an individual activity. Satisfactory and timely participation in the discussion is a requirement for meeting performance in this project. SeeMBA discussion guidelines.When you have finished Step 5, proceed to Step 6, where you will summarize your team’s project findingsin a report to managementStep 6: Prepare a Report to Management At the conclusion of your project, Frank requests a report based on your team’s analysis and recommendations in the previous steps. He is planning on using this report to provide the client, Choice Hotels, with guidance on a potential changes in their strategy. This report, along with citations for any sources your team uses, should be about three to five pages. The report should highlight your team’s analysis and recommendations based on the work you and your team completed in the workbook. Be creative and use charts, graphs, or any other tools your team feels would be useful to convey your team’s analysis and recommendations.

PUTCALLPARITY

PUT CALL PARITYThe Put Call Parity defines a price relationship between Call options, Put Options, and Underlying stock. The idea was first introduced by finance journalist Hans Stoll in 1969, in his paper ‘The Relationship Between Put and Call Prices’ in 1969. It is considered as one of the most important principle in Option Pricing (Hecht, 2019).There are two types of Options 1. XEO (European Options): the exercise of these options will only happen at the option’s expiry date.2. OEX (American Options): the exercise of these options can be at any time during their life.The Put Call Parity tends to work perfectly only with European options compared to the American Options (Hull, 2017).The formula applied to check the relationship between European put and call options with same strike prices and expiry isC + X  = P + SHere,C: Call PremiumP: Put Premiumr: risk free interest rate T: Time to maturity in terms of year.X: Strike price of Call and Put Option.S: Initial Price or Current Price of underlying.

In this scenario, from the above mentioned table we can conclude that OTM with X=1190 holds true. The other two figures were ITM with X=560 and ATM with X=640, since they have a slightly larger gap comparing to OTM. It does not hold true. This offers an arbitrage opportunity for the investors.(OEX) American Put Call Parity AMERICAN PUT CALL PARITY OPTIONS ATM ITM OTM C 636.8 716.1 143.45 D 2.16% 2.16% 2.16% PV(D) 0.020831022 0.020831022 0.020831022 X 640 1190 560 PV(X) 617.2154797 1147.635033 540.0635448 LHS 1254.036311 1863.755864 683.5343758 S 1271.2 1271.2 1271.2 P 2.375 64.85 1.475 RHS 1273.575 1336.05 1272.675 DIFFERENCE -19.53868925 527.7058636 -589.1406242 OUTCOME DOES NOT HOLD TRUE HOLDS TRUE DOES NOT HOLD TRUE In the American Options the Put Call Parity holds true when LHS is greater than or equal to RHS. As from the table above we can see that LHS < RHS when X=1190 when the option is in the money (ITM).   The Put Call Parity is denoted by the equation, P (So, T, X) = C (S0, T, X) – So + X (1+ r)-T Applying to the formula,1.45 = 140.35 – 1271.2 + 1147.6350332.375 < 16.785033As we can notice here that 16.785033 is greater, the call is over-priced. The investor is advised to sell his over-priced call in this situation and buy a put of the same value, as it becomes a perfect hedge. We could use an alternative equation i.e., S0 = C (So, T, X) – P (So, T, X) + X (1 + r) -T  Applying to the formula,1271.2 = 140.35 – 1.45 + 1147.6350331271.2 < 1286.535033When using the above formula, it indicates that the call, put and bonds are overpriced, so the investor should sell theses and buy the shares as they are underpriced. Therefore, to check arbitrage profits Put Call Parity variations can be used.Hecht, A., 2019.Options: The Concept Of Put-Call Parity. [online] The Balance.

Each reply should be at least 200 to 300 words.I will also attach the original assignment you did for me.Post # 1: JacquelineThe United States health system is built upon the three pillars of quality, cost and access to healthcare. These three pillars have been a focus in policy and healthcare reform in recent years and will continue to be in coming years. There are many attributes that contribute to these three pillars and their continued progress. Upon completing the readings by Shi and Singh (2014), some of these attributes include number of students entering medical school, prescription drug cost and the effects of research on healthcare. The number of students entering medical school, cost of prescription drugs and research are all related to the three pillars of quality, cost and access to healthcare.The number of students entering medical school is determined by several variables. A major variable effecting the number of students entering medical school is their ability to obtain a government grant to help cover the cost of medical school (Shi & Singh, 2014). With the help of government grants, more students may be more likely to apply to a medical school. The increase in number of students going to medical school will result in more providers. Currently, there is great demand for primary care physicians and with more students attending medical school due to government grants, resultantly a greater number of providers will be available and will increase the populations access to healthcare (Shi & Singh, 2014). The attribute of the number of students going to medical school relates to the access to healthcare in the United States.The next attribute of healthcare identified it the readings of Shi and Singh (2014) is the cost of prescription drugs. The cost of prescription drugs impacts individuals overall cost of healthcare. The cost of prescriptions drugs can greatly increase in a short period, and in 2014 and 2015, there was a twelve-percent increase on overall spending on prescription drugs (Shi & Singh, 2014). The cost of prescription drugs has also been a hot topic in politics. The president of the United States has claimed that the cost of prescription drug prices went down last year for the first time in 51 years (Rizzo, 2019). In the report by The Washington Post, it was found that the statement and claims made by the president were skewed and in 2018, there was an increase in 4,412 brand-name drugs and a price cut to only 46 brand-name drugs in the first seven months of the year (Rizzo, 2019). The cost of prescription coverage effects the overall cost of healthcare to individuals and has been a topic of focus politically.The third attribute identified in the readings is the effect that research has on healthcare. Research is directly related to the quality of healthcare. The effect of research on healthcare includes reducing “the risk of harm from healthcare services by using evidence-based research and technology to promote the delivery of best possible care” (Shi & Singh, 2014, p. 558). Research also transforms practice of healthcare by increasing access to effective services and “improves healthcare outcomes by encouraging providers, consumers and patients to use evidence-based information to make informed treatment decisions” (Shi & Singh, 2014, p. 558). Research is responsible for evidence-based practice and ultimately increasing the quality of healthcare in the United States.The combination of these three attributes of number of students entering medical school, cost of prescription drugs and the effects of research are all related to the three pillars of healthcare. The three pillars of healthcare provide a solid foundation to healthcare in the United States and will continue to be improved upon through policy and healthcare reform. Quality, cost and access to healthcare effect the health of the United States population and will continue to remain a focus of opportunity for improvement.ReferencesRizzo, S. (2019, July 15). Are prescription drug prices going down? The Washington Post. Retrieved from https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2019/07/15/are-prescription-drug-prices-going-down/Shi, L., & Singh, D. (2014). Delivering Health Care in America (7th ed.). Sudbury, MA: Jones and Bartlett.———————–Post # 2: EmilyQuality, cost and access are the three main pillars of the U.S healthcare system. While we strive as a nation to maintain these three pillars, there are many other attributes that contribute to the system as well to consider. According to Shi and Singh (2019), one of the biggest characteristics of the U.S healthcare system that separates it from other developed nations is that it is a private system of financing and delivery and not controlled by a single department or agency (p. 11). This system avoids the use of global budgets, which is defined by Shi and Singh (2019) as “allocation of pre-established total expenditures for a health care system or subsystem”, and allows private businesses to finance health care expenditures independently from the government (p.11). Having no central agency also allows for lower taxes. Former Vice President Joe Biden, in the most recent democratic debate, argued that use of a central agency, or Senator Bernie Sanders proposal of “Medicare for All”, to control the healthcare system would cause taxes to “skyrocket” (Huetteman, 2019). While access is certainly a goal of the U.S health care system, there are other characteristics that could effect the American people as well to consider. Another characteristic of the U.S healthcare system is that access to health care services is based on insurance coverage (Shi & Singh, 2019, p. 10). There are multiple ways Americans can access health care services, however there are barriers if patients are uninsured. One of the main barriers to safe health care delivery to the uninsured is the lack of access to primary care services (Shi & Singh, 2019, p. 12). Because of these barriers, Americans are encouraged to insure themselves either through their employers or through a government health program. According to a report by Wolfson (2019), California will begin issuing tax penalties to those who are uninsured. Lastly, research and innovation in the medical field is one of the reasons the U.S has some of the best hospitals in the world and one of the characteristics that contributes to quality health care delivery (Shi & Singh, 2019, p. 16). However, balancing these new advances and providing cost-effective care can be a challenge (Mawali, Pinto, & Hinai, 2018, p. 442). According to Mawali, Pinto, and Hinai (2018), government systems must regulate “assessment, planning, and budgeting to formal evaluation, procurement, warehousing, distribution, utilization, maintenance, replacement, and disposal” in order to meet the needs of developing processes while also maintaining a budget (p. 442). Providing high-quality, cost-effective and accessible care is a challenging task effected by multiple factors of the U.S healthcare system. This issue directly impacts every American and leaders are consistently presenting new ideas to effectively reach these goals to satisfy citizens. With diseases growing more complex and technology advancing to diagnose, treat and prolong the lives of many, the challenge of maintaining these pillars is becoming more of an issue.ReferencesHuetteman, E.

Strategic Management Analysis: A Case Study of AmazonStudent’s NameInstitutionStrategic Management Analysis: A Case Study of AmazonAmazon.com’s History and ProductsHeadquartered in Seattle, Washington, Amazon.com is one of the world’s largest online retailers and pioneer of online retailing. Jeff Bezos, the president and chief executive officer of Amazon.com, started the company in 1994 as an online bookstore before expanding into other products. Today, the company offers a range of goods and services via its websites. The organization’s products comprise of merchandise and contents that it buys from vendors and third party sellers for resale. It also produces and sells different types of electronic devices. Among its product lines are media, apparel, consumer electronics, gourmet food, groceries, baby products, and jewelry. Others include: health and personal care products, kitchenware, watches, garden items, industrial and scientific supplies, sporting products, musical instruments, toys and games, and automotive products.It operates via three segments-North America, Amazon Web Services, and International. Its Amazon Web Services products consist of analytics, Amazon CloudSearch, Amazon Kinesis, Amazon Athena, Amazon Streaming for Apache Kafka, and Amazon EMR. The segment also deals with other products such as Amazon Redshift, Amazon ElasticSearch, Amazon QuickSight, AWS Lake Formation, AWS Data Pipeline, and AWS Glue. Amazon Web Services solutions consist of machine learning, Internet of Things, containers, storage, analytics and data lakes, serverless computing, and containers.  In addition to advertising, the organization also offers Amazon Prime (Reuters, 2020). Critical EventsToday, Amazon is one of the world’s most valuable public organizations, with Mr. Bezos being the richest man in the world because of various critical events. What started as an online book retailer has grown into a global giant with physical stores, a wide delivery system, membership subscriptions, and its own smart devices. Thanks to its innovations, Streitfeld (2018) indicates that Amazon become the second company in the world, in 2018, to have a value of $1 trillion after Apple Incorporation. It also has the second highest market valuation after Microsoft Incorporation. Although the company can attribute its success to global expansion, the success can be to its diversification into other sectors. The United States Securities and Exchange Commission (2018) indicates that video streaming services and devices, groceries, and cloud services have allowed the organization to compete with other technology heavyweights such as Apple, Google, Netflix, and Facebook. Other key events associated with its success include: launching of online book sales in 1995, Amazon becoming the world’s largest online sales platform in 1999, launching of Prime membership in 2005, and launching of the Kindle in 2007 (Palumbo, 2019). LeadershipBezos’ transformational leadership has also played a significant role in the company’s tremendous growth since its inception.Forbes (2012) indicates that Bezos is committed to building effective relationship between himself and his customers and employees. He has managed to create major shifts in his followers’ thinking thereby creating a tremendous change in their behavior and drive toward extraordinary results. According to Northouse (2015),a transformational leader relies on charisma and is characterized by four qualities of individual consideration, inspirational motivation, idealized influence, and intellectual stimulation. CompetitionAmazon.com’s businesses encompass a wide variety of products, services, and delivery channels. The global market in which the organization operates experiences rapid evolution and intense competition. In this regard, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (2018) indicates that Amazon.com faces numerous competitors from different industry sectors across the globe. Among its common competitors include: physical, ecommerce, and omni-channel retailers, vendors, manufacturers, and publishers of products that the company offers and sells to consumers. Other classes of competitors are publishers, manufacturers, and distributors of digital, interactive, as well as physical media; web search engines, social networks, and other online application based means of using and acquiring products; firms that offer e-commerce services such as advertising, payment processing, and customer fulfillment; and firms offering fulfillment and logistic services. Moreover, Amazon faces competition from firms that offer information technology services; and organizations that design, produce, and market consumer electronics and electronic devices. Strategic HistoryAmazon.com Incorporation’s concentric diversification has also played a significant impact on its success over the years. The company leverages its technological capabilities and competencies for business success. It also follows a cost leadership strategy that focuses on offering maximum value to its clients at the lowest possible price on top of wrapping its business operations around customer needs. The focus is to have the company the go to portal for online shopping requirements. The strategy has paid off as evidenced by the fact that Amazon is the largest online retailer around the world and has consistently been the market leader in all segments that it serves. In addition to concentric diversification, the company’s success is driven by its competitive advantage. It uses its technology, leverages the benefits from synergies between its internal resources and external factors as the foundations of its business model. Moreover, the company utilizes data analytics to map out consumer behavior. In fact, the company has embraced big data to an extent that it markets it as another service offering. Mission Statement and Vision StatementThe company’s mission statement is “We strive to offer our customers the lowest possible prices, the best available selection, and the utmost convenience” (Whittington & Whittington, 2018, p.60). The company’s mission statement promises customers effective e-commerce services, affordable prices, best selection, and utmost convenience to satisfy their needs.The company’s vision statement is, “To be Earth’s most customer-centric company, where customers can find and discover anything they might want to buy online”(Whittington & Whittington, 2018, p.60). The vision statement underscores the company’s aim of becoming the world’s best e-commerce business. It emphasizes global reach, customer prioritization, and widest product selection. External Factor EvaluationAmazon.com Incorporation’s external factor evaluation comprises of opportunities and threats within its industry. David and David (2017) assert that this evaluation helps in assessing political, economic, socio-cultural, technological, legal, and competitive factors affecting an organization. By determining opportunities and threats within the industry, Amazon.com can examine how it is responding to the aforementioned factors.

The factors are then rated according to how well Amazon.com is responding to each factor with 1 representing poor response and 4 being a superior response. The weights are then multiplied by their corresponding ratings to get a score, which are also totaled. The identified opportunities and threats give Amazon.com a combined weighted external factor evaluation score of 2.72. Competitive AnalysisA competitive profile matrix identifies Amazon.com Incorporation’s rivals and its strengths as well as weaknesses relative to its strategic position. Some of Amazon’s competitors are eBay and Barnes & Nobles. The key factors that make up the competitive profile matrix include market share, price, financial position, product quality, customer loyalty, global expansion, and advertising. Other critical factors are software technology, e-commerce expertise, and management.  Table 2: Competitive Profile Matrix for Amazon.com Amazon eBay Barnes & Nobles Critical Success Factors Weight Rating Weighted score Rating Weighted score Rating Weighted score Market share 0.05 4 0.20 4 0.20 3 0.15 Financial position 0.15 2 0.30 3 0.45 4 0.60 Product quality 0.10 3 0.30 3 0.30 3 0.30 e-commerce expertise 0.05 4 0.20 4 0.20 3 0.15 Advertising 0.15 4 0.60 4 0.60 3 0.45 Global expansion 0.15 4 0.60 4 0.60 3 0.45 Price 0.10 4 0.40 4 0.40 3 0.30 Customer loyalty 0.10 4 0.40 4 0.40 3 0.30 Management 0.10 4 0.40 4 0.40 4 0.40 Software technology 0.05 4 0.20 3 0.15 3 0.15 Total 1.00 3.60 3.70 3.25 Each organization is rated on whether a given critical success factor is a strength or a weakness, with a score of 2 representing a weak and a score of 4 representing a major strength. Amazon has the same high score as eBay in market share, e-commerce, advertising, global expansion, price, customer loyalty, and management. Amazon has higher score in software technology than its competitors. Barnes & Nobles dominates in financial position followed by eBay. Internal Factor Evaluation Amazon.com Incorporation’s internal factor evaluation comprises of strengths and weaknesses in important business functional areas. After determining the strengths and weaknesses specific to Amazon.com, each factor is weighted based on importance. An evaluation of internal environment shows that various factors affect Amazon.com Incorporation’s business Table 3: Internal Factor Evaluation Matrix of Amazon.com Key Internal Factors Weight Rating Weighted Score Strengths 1.

The weakness factors are rated as either a 1 to represent a strong weakness or as a 2 to represent a minor weakness. The weights are multiplied by their corresponding ratios to compute a weighted score. The weighted scores are summed to determine the total weighted score which is 3.1. Financial Analysis Ratio 2018 (amount in millions) Net Margin = Net income/sales *100 =2,371/135,987*100% =1.74% Current ratio = current assets/current liabilities =60,197/57,883 =1.04 Debt to Equity = long term liabilities/shareholders’ equity =45,718/27,709 =1.65 Total asset turnover= sales/average total assets =135,987/(131,310+162,648)/2 =0.92 A profitability analysis shows that Amazon.com is less profitable as evidenced by a lower net margin of 1.74%. Nonetheless, the company is in a better position to meet its short term financial obligations as evidenced by a current ratio of 1.04. Block, Hirt and Danielsen (2011) indicate that a current ratio of more than 1.0 implies that an entity can finance its short term obligations by using its current assets. Amazon.com Incorporation’s debt to equity level of 1.65 implies that the organization is insolvent. The company can be declared bankrupt if it is not in a position to pay its debt using its assets. The asset turnover ratio of 0.92 implies that for every $1 dollar worth of assets, Amazon only managed to generate $0.92 worth of revenue.  Conclusionand RecommendationAmazon.com Incorporation’s external factor evaluationof 2.72, which is above the average score of 2.5, indicates that the company is effectively manipulating its opportunities to counter environmental threats. Nonetheless, the company should manipulate its opportunities such as appreciation of United States dollar and increasing number of Internet users to overcome some threats such as intense competition and rising unemployment levels. Competitive analysis indicates that Amazon’s weighted score of 3.60 is slightly higher than Barnes & Nobles’ score of 3.25, but lower than eBay’s score of 3.70. The score does not imply that Amazon is not as good as eBay. The organization should use its numbers to determine what it must do to gain competitive advantage in the industry. The company’s the total weighted score of 3.10 is greater than the average of 2.5, which demonstrates Amazon’s strong internal position. However, the organization should address issues such as declining revenue and declining net income.ReferencesBlock, S. B., Hirt, G. A., &Danielsen, B. R. (2011).

With a highly profitable business and an aversion to debt, CPK management is considering a debt-financed stock buyback program. The case is intended to provide an introduction to the Modigliani-Miller capital structure irrelevance propositions and the concept of debt tax shields. With the background of a pizza company, the case provides an engaging context to discuss the “pizza graphs” that are commonly used in corporate finance curriculum to illustrate the wealth effects of capital structure decisions.The case serves to motivate the following learning objectives:Introduce the Modigliani-Miller intuition of capital structure irrelevance;Establish how the cost of equity is affected by capital structure decisions by defining financial risk and introducing the levered-beta capital asset pricing model (CAPM) equation;Discuss interest tax deductibility and the valuation tax shields;Explore the importance of debt capacity in a growing business.Questions1. What is going on at CPK? What decisions does Susan Collyns face? In what ways can she facilitate the success of CPK? What do you recommend?2. Using the scenarios in case Exhibit 9, what role does leverage play in affecting the return on equity (ROE) for CPK? 3. Is the capital structure decisions relevant for maximizing the shareholders’ value? What is the ratio of debt-to-equity that maximizes the shareholder’s value?

What should Collins recommend?. 111. What is going on at CPK? What decisions does Susan Collyns face? In what ways can she facilitate the success of CPK? What do you recommend?California Pizza Kitchen (CPK), a company that was founded from an idea that was an escape for 2 defense lawyers, which is now being led by Susan Collyns who is the Chief Financial Officer. CPK was founded in 1985 in Beverly Hills, California. By mid 2007, it expanded to a total of 213 retail outlets throughout the US and internationally with 40% of their operations being centered in California. At the moment CPK is operating at fully owned outlets; some of them are partnerships and rest are operating as franchises, these are considered to be the main sources of income. In 2007 when the financial team was compiling the preliminary results for the second quarter, it was realized that despite the fact that the share price of the firm had dropped by 10% the previous month to the current value it is at of $22.10, CPK was still operating at an impressive profit level which was led by a strong revenue growth level in comparison to their competitors in the market, which were all suffering from increased prices of commodities and an increase production costs. In addition to this CPK’s management also made sure that they have a conservative financial policy which was to avoid any debt to appear in the balance sheet statements. CPK is considering to open at least 16-18 new branches with a possible closure of an older branch in the near future, to achieve financing for such a project Collyns needs to concern herself with what will be the most appropriate capital structure to move forward with. The plan of action being considered at the moment is the share repurchase this is also motivated by the fact that share price is actually depressed at the moment. The effect of this share repurchase will be observed in the market, so what can be expected is a higher value of the stock in the future which will be caused by an increased return on equity, reduced cost of capital and also an increase in stock price. But for this to be done CPK might need to consider debt financing although they actually try to avoid adding any debt to the firm. So, capital structure is the biggest issue that she is facing currently. CPK has a strong foundation which can lead to having an optimistic future lining ahead of them which is evaluated by the analysis of the market and the management’s confidence in the firms. The numbers found in the statements and the revenue growth of the firm when compared to the industry is very good indicator to the firms future success. A suggestion to help Collyns facilitate the success of CPK is to continue expanding branches both domestically and internationally since consumers have a very good response to CPK, this is also shown in the financial statements and it is recorded a growth of 15% in the second quarter of 2007 while competitors only grew by 5%. What Collyns can also do is that she can increase its marketing strategy to attract more customers to the firms since CPK is currently spending less than their competitors on marketing, it is believed that can increase of sales can be done by an increase in marketing. CPK’s revenues have three main sources; sales at company owned restraunts, royalties from different franhied restaurents and royalities from their partnership with Kraft Foods, CPK should sustain this pattern while also deveopling different alternatives to increase and improve the overall performance of the firm.Other possible alternatives to help facilitate CPK’s success is to consider merging or creating partnerships with other business to increase channels and get a better control on cost of goods sold levels in production.We suggest that Susan should approach debt financing to repurchase the company’s stock to increase the share price, also the money can help in the expansion of the branches. The company will also gain many benefits from going with the decision of capital restricting; which is debt financing, the main benefit is an interest tax shield. If Collyns doesn’t decide to go this route it can lead to increasing equity, which is a difficult thing to do.2. Using the scenarios in case Exhibit 9, what role does leverage play in affecting the return on equity (ROE) for CPK? As we computed the financial leverage for CPK from 1-1-2006 to 1-7-200, we have found that the financial leverage was 28% in 1-1-2006, 32.5% in 32-12-2006 and 33.5% in 1-7-2007. The financial leverage of the company has slightly increased during 1.5%The financial leverage increasing may improve the ROE for a company because a company could outsource money in the utilization of a company’s operations with a few or even without requiring investments from equity. Looking at a company’s income statement during 2006 to 2007 in Exhibit 3, we find that the net income was 19,490 and 21,000. Calculating the ROE, we found the ROE was 9.88% in 2006 and 10.08% in 2007. This means that the ROE of the company has improved because they had expanded their business by using higher debt for the company’s operations while slightly increasing the equity as part of the expansion. As for the cost of capital, our calculation has shown a different WACC for three different Debt/total capital scenarios of 10%, 20% and 30% in Exhibit 9. Posed at 8.35%, 8.82%, and 8.17% respectively. The financial leverage impact to cost of capital in term of increasing the financial leverage was the WACC decrease due to the proportion differentiation of debt to total capital from 10%, 20% and 30% respectively. The effects of financial leverage on BETA was the increase the ROE but it entails high risk. The second concern that we have was the effect of leverage on the WACC by calculating the company’s beta using the CAPM model. The unlevered beta was 0.85, which is the beta of the company without any debt. It removes the financial effects from leverage. We have used the formula “ Where BL is the firms’ beta with leverage, Tc is the tax rate and D/E is the company’s debt to equity ratio. Coming with 0.87, 0.89, and 0.915 at a debt to total capital of 10%, 20% and 30% respectively. The effects if financial leverage on cost of equity was that the higher the financial leverage, the higher the cost of equity as we have calculated in exhibit 9. We have concluded this after we have used the formula Rf= Rf+ Beta x (Rm – Rf)3. Is the capital structure decisions relevant for maximizing the shareholders’ value? What is the ratio of debt-to-equity that maximizes the shareholder’s value? Why should the stockholders care about maximizing firm value? Shouldn’t they be interested in strategies that maximize shareholder value only? What are the key drivers for increasing value of CPK how it affects its capital providers i.e. shareholders and creditors.Modigliani-Miller theory basically states that the market value of any firm is determined by their earning power, any risk from underlying assets and its independent way of them choosing to finance their investments. So the basic idea behind this theory is that it does not make any difference whether a firm will finance itself with either debt or equity. So the way that it is applied in this case is that the value of CPK does not depend on the way the profits are divided up but on the total size of profits. When calculating what the effect of a share repurchase will do to the firm, the calculations are shown below. Using a 10% debt to total capital structure will drive up the price of the stock up to $22.35, this will cause a 1.13% increase and will allow a possible buy back of 1,011,000 shares which is equal to a 3.47% decrease in shares. A change of 20% debt to total capital structure will move the price to $22.60, it will cause a 2.26% increase and this will help buy back 1,999,000 shares to be bought back and a 6.685 decrease. A 30% debt to total capital structure will jump the stock price to $22.86, a 2.99% increase and allow a repurchase of 2,965,000 shares, a 10.18% decrease in shares.It is our opinion, a debt issuance to buy back shares is the best step forward for the company to do. What is recommended is for them to issue around $45,178,000 worth of debt in order to achieve a 20% debt to total capital structure. It is also recommended for CPK to use this money to buy back approximately 1,999,000 shares of their stock. This will cause an increase of 2.26% of share price which will be appeasing to their shareholders. This level is chosen because of the obvious benefit to the shareholders and because the level of risk that is involved for the shareholders is considered to be moderate. Even though if they use a 30% debt to total capital structure it will be more beneficial to shareholders, this carries too much of a risk for Collyns. By going for the most conservative 20% leverage, it will leave more room for a change in capital structure in the future, so if they want to further expand it will be possible. The states of shares which are owned by two different sets of shareholders which is shown in the below table;Distribution of Shares Between Controlling & Non-Controlling Shareholders Shareholders Percentage of Shares Number of Shares Controlling Shareholders 51% 14,856,300 Non-Controlling Shareholder 49% 14,273,700 Total Shares 100% 29,130,000 In the proposed scenario, the controlling shareholders will not want to lose any shares because of the controlling issues. Because of this the non-controlling shareholder will be the ones to lose some of their shares. With CPK’s case when repurchasing the shares from the non-controlling share, this repurchase which will be done by tender offer will lead to the controlling shareholders to have a significant number shares more than their counterparts and will have a marginal increase in company decisions. Distribution of Shares Between Controlling & Non-Controlling Shareholders After Buyback Shareholders Percentage of shares Number of Shares Controlling shareholders 54.7% 14,856,300 Non-Controlling Shareholders 45.3% 12,291,321 Total Shares 100% 27,147,621 The repurchase will have many adverse effects on the different shareholder groups. The non-controlling shareholders who did not tender their shares, will have experienced a major increase in the value of their shares. However the non-controlling shareholders who did tender their shares would have experienced a 20 cent per share gain in addition to the increase in the market value of their share. The effect on the controlling shareholders will be as follows, it will increase negotiation power if in the future the shareholders would want to tender their shares. This will result in if CPK would have to purchase their shares at a premium which would comprise of 1) a loss in the stake of the corporation and 2) a loss in value of control.4. How does debt add value to CPK?For many companies debt is considered a liability that they owe to their creditors and there is always an ongoing concern to repay it. But yet there are certain advantages carried by acquiring debt for a company. The same is applicable for CPK, as they will be able to benefit from the taxation that occurs when financing a debt. Taxation implication on debt differs from the one on equity. Leveraging CPK will allow them to achieve lower tax rate, since the lower taxable income; lower the tax paid. Moreover, this will be reflected on the company’s market value as tax shield raises market value by saving a company’s cash flow. Another benefit for CPK will be the rise in ROE that would occur due to the greater proportion of debt compared to equity. But due to the tax shield, income will not be affected greatly. According to the ROE formula; net income/shareholders equity, when equity decreases in a greater proportion to the net income, ROE tends to rise. This also adds value to the company. Since CPK is facing a decline in their stock price due to undervaluation of its stocks, they could repurchase it via the debt. By this CPK will be able to affect the impact of their stocks price and can raise their value again. Debt inquiry will not only benefit CPK, but their shareholders as well, as they will be able to attain greater income due to the tax shield. 5. What is the case for not doing the recapitalization?The CPK management is known for its conservative financial policy as per its concern for maintaining power. The management should keep in mind the benefits of leverage and tax-shields gains when contrasted with the cost of using all of the borrowing capacity for the future. As CPK has an important growth trajectory, we ought to question whether the growth exceeds the firm’s ability to sustain this growth. To see whether or not this is an issue, we have to analyse the sustainable growth rate through the sources and uses of cash. This method excludes the possibility of new equity financing. Since the formulas are presented as follows:Sources of cash = NOPAT + Net new debtUses of Cash = change of NWC + change of PPE + Dividends and repurchases + Interest Payments. We equaled both of the formulas to each other and rearranged the new formula. We got the equation: Growth in total capital = ROC + Change in D/TC – Payments/TCWhere the growth in total capital is equal to change in TC/TC, ROC is equal to NOPAT/TC, and payments are equal to dividends plus repurchases plus interest payments. By using all the debt capacity to repurchase shares, the management restrics the funding of business growth to the level generated by the business operations, ROC. With the ROC for CPK running at 10%, the growth rate should be equal to that, give or take. The growth in new stores was estimated at 16 or 18 on the basis of 213 stores, which represent 7.5% to 8.5% expected growth rate. The 2007 capital expenditure was expected to be $85 million, depreciation was approximately $35 Million based on historical values and the first six months of 2007. A $50 million increase ($85-$35 million) in net property and equipment, NPE, and a book capital base of $226 million represents a 22% growth rate in total capital, not including any increases in new working capital, NWC. The will be adversely affected if the industry’s economics deteriorate further and reduce the company’s ROC.6. What should Collyns recommend?According to the available financial information, it is most suitable for CPK to finance their debt at 30%. Since CPK did not acquire debt earlier, it is considered risky for them, but the benefits that will arise from it are greater than not having debt at all. Greater returns are forecasted when obtaining debt. Moreover, this time is considered ideal for CPK debt acquirement, as positive prospects are assured from the outperformed benchmarking and the steady growth rate the past 4 years in sales, net operating income and net income. Although we mentioned earlier that there is a slight benefit of repurchasing their stock; as it will raise its value, it is not considered an investment to the firm. In case of a repurchase of stocks, the company will only need to refinance with 20% of the debt, in order to not exceed their credit line of 75 million dollars. The rest of the money could be used in other aspects of the company as to improve and innovate their products.

Just try to answer in a way that’s clear and makes sense.The projects in this section give you hands-on experience in analyzing financial reporting and inventory management problems, using data management software to improve management decision making about increasing sales, and using Internet software for researching job requirements.Management Decision Problems 1-7Snyders of Hanover, which sells about 80 million bags of pretzels, snack chips, and organic snack items each year, had its financial department use spreadsheets and manual processes for much of its data gathering and reporting. Hanover’s financial analyst would spend the entire final week of every month collecting spreadsheets from the heads of more than 50 departments worldwide. She would then consolidate and reenter all the data into another spreadsheet, which would serve as the company’s monthly profit-and-loss statement. If a department needed to update its data after submitting the spreadsheet to the main office, the analyst had to return the original spreadsheet, then wait for the department to resubmit its data before finally submitting the updated data in the consolidated document. Assess the impact of this situation on business performance and management decision making. 1-8Dollar General Corporation operates deep-discount stores offering housewares, cleaning supplies, clothing, health and beauty aids, and packaged food, with most items selling for $1. Its business model calls for keeping costs as low as possible. The company has no automated method for keeping track of inventory at each store. Managers know approximately how many cases of a particular product the store is supposed to receive when a delivery truck arrives, but the stores lack technology for scanning the cases or verifying the item count inside the cases. Merchandise losses from theft or other mishaps have been rising and now represent more than 3 percent of total sales.

Acquisition Project PlanMekdes AsaminewRasmussen College04/18/2020Acquisition Project Plan Project Scope The scope of the project is a vital component of the project management plan. It defines the extent and boundaries of the project. The project scope includes a list of tasks, deliverables, costs, and objectives. The scope helps project team members in making critical decisions since it states the responsibilities and boundaries of the project. As a result, the project scope is essential for the successful completion of the acquisition project. The main objective of this project is to acquire one of its competitors who will enable Kingston-Bryce Limited (KBL) to expand its operations and increase the workforce. The acquisition of the competitor is expected to elevate the performance of the organization through an efficient reduction of cost and revenue growth. Another goal of the project is to create a new market for the company. According to Po (2015), acquisition and mergers (M&A) provide an opportunity for companies to sell their products in a new market. Additionally, the acquisition project objective is to diversify its business operations. Currently, KBL specializes in the production of hand-crafted dining room tables. Therefore, acquiring the competitor will allow the company to venture into the production of custom furniture. The deliverables of the acquisition project are categorized into four phases. Phase one of the project involves defining and explaining the decision to acquire another company. The step includes detailing the importance of acquisition to the company, both short and long-terms. The approach helps in convincing key stakeholders to back up the project plan. The second phase of the project is identifying and screening the target company. Deliverables in this phase include due diligence of the identified companies, quick valuation, and shortlisting potential competitors for acquisition. During stage three of the project, the management will deliberate on shortlisted companies and rank them according to preference. A company with the most desirable outcome will be selected for acquisition. In this case, Kingston-Bryce Limited will select a custom furniture manufacturer. Other critical tasks in this phase include the negotiation of the deal and the signing of the contract. According to Chaves (2012), both parties sign a confidentiality agreement form where they consent to share all business, legal, and financial information regarding their companies. The agreement allows KBL to conduct due diligence and estimate the value of the competitor using the discounted cash flow (DCF) method. On the other hand, the agreement enables the seller to determine the ability of KBL to acquire their company.  The final phase of the project involves the integration of the company into the organization. This process includes integrating the HR, IT, and other critical operation components of the competitor into the KBL organizational system. The process also allows KBL to take control of the new company. Funding Schedule The funding schedule refers to the plan through which the company will finance the project. Usually, the project sponsor is responsible for availing resources necessary for the successful completion of the project (Pinto, 2009). In collaboration with the project manager and key stakeholders, the project sponsor prepares the project budget, which is submitted to the KBL’s board of directors for approval. The board had allocated the acquisition project $5 million, and the funding will be done in three cycles. In the first cycle, the project will receive $1 million, which will cover all the costs incurred in the first, second, and part of the third phases of the project, including due diligence, valuation, and negotiation. The funding in the second cycle is $3 million, and this will be used to acquire the competitor and to seal the deal. The funding in the final phase will be $1 million, and this will go to the integration expenses, including the transfer of data, HR and IT integration, and training of the new workforce. Timelines for the Acquisition The acquisition project will take 18 months to complete. The initial stage, which involves the definition and planning of the project, will take 3 months. Some of the tasks that will be completed in this phase include identification of key stakeholders, approval of the project, budget preparation, and establishment of the project team. Other tasks include the delegation of roles and responsibilities and identification of potential risks. The second phase of the project will take 4 months to be completed. During this period, the project managers will lead the project team in identifying potential companies for acquisition and screening them. The team will also conduct a quick valuation and due diligence to determine the best candidate for acquisition. Once this is done, the project manager will compile a shortlist and submit it to the board of management. The third phase will take 8 months. This phase takes a lengthy period to complete since it involves complex tasks such as in-depth valuation, due diligence, and negations. Other tasks include the application of regulatory approval and contractual signings. The final phase will take 3 months to be completed. Majorly, the project team will be focusing on the integration of the new acquisition into the organization. Some of the tasks involved are IT integration, HR integration, training, and data transfer.

The summary assists the reader in understanding your plan.Contents page – it includes all sections and sub-sections, it should also include the list of figures and tablesIntroduction – intro in to the marketing planMain body – it should contain the following stagesSTAGE 1Situational analysis – The situation analysis should provide an overview of your organisation/market offering (product or service) by addressing internal and external factors impacting the business.2The situation analysis can be organised into three sections:• PESTEL• SWOT• Porter’s 5 ForcesTables can be used, but a critical discussion of the most important elements which directly influence the objectives, strategy and implementation must be critically discussed.STP- Helps brings to life who your existing customers are and who competitors are.USP can be used to help explain “positioning”.STAGE 2Objectives- Your marketing planning framework should focus on the Objective/s of your strategy. Stage 1 looked at the situation analysis which provided an overview for your organisation, specifically: addressing internal and external factorsimpacting your business.Typical objectives include sales, profits, market share, advertising awareness, etc. Objectives are outcomes and cannot be directly controlled. For example, to spend four million pounds on advertising is a planned action. Advertising spending can have several measurable outcomes or objectives; aided and unaided recall, change in product positioning, or sales. Be careful not to state planned actions as objectives.To help create your objectives, I recommend using measurable and realistic goals to achieve the marketing strategy, focusing on ensuring you make each objectiveSMART.You are required to devise TWO smart objectives, these will derive from either:a) existing objectives that may be found on a company’s websiteb) objectives can also derive from the SWOT analysisSTAGE 3Strategy – Strategy means how you plan to get there in terms of fulfilling the objectives set.A marketing strategy is a broad directional statement that describes how marketing objectives will be accomplished. Within our marketing plan, the marketing strategies represent a first overview of various marketing tools and how they will be used to achieve the marketing objectives. While marketing objectives are specific, quantifiable, and measurable, marketing strategies are descriptiveIn other words you are expected to apply marketing strategic frameworks here, such as Ansoff matrix, brand extension, or line extension.Remember strategies must tackle both objectives.3STAGE 4Implementation or Tactics – Tactics cover the specific tools of the marketing mix (7p’s) that you plan to use to realise the objectives of your marketing plan. This section of a marketing plan relates to putting the strategy into action (step by step) you would be going into a lot more detail for each tactic.To help achieve the objectives above, use the 7p’s of the Marketing Mix to focus on the key attributes to be considered by Company X in order to meet your objectives.STAGE 5Action – focused on how to bring your plan to life, to make actionable measures. The action section covers what needs to be achieved for each of the tactics listed in the previous section of the SOSTAC plan to realise the objectives of your marketing plan. Please use a Gantt chart to help explain the actions as part of the strategy and tacticsSTAGE 6Control – The final stage is to layout how you plan to monitor and measure your performance based on the objectives set at stage 2. The tactics have been considered and your control section is providing you with a series of dashboards tailored for each tactic.Look to set the KPI’s per tactic that tie back into the objectives set and set up a weekly/monthly set of monitoring dashboards to ensure you are on track to meet the objectives set.Conclusion – it should be the summary of your key findings and recommendations.References – Make sure you follow the CU Harvard Style.LayoutYour work should be word processed in accordance with the following:• Font style, Arial or Times New Roman, font size 12• 1.5 line spacing.• The page orientation should be ‘portrait’• Margins on both sides of the page should be no less than 2.5 cm• Pages should be numbered• Your student number should be included on every page.4

Financial case

For Case III, below is the right answer, please revise ours accordingly. 1. It appears the decision to acquire the equipment and perform the image upgrade has already been made. As such, we can assume that we simply need to provide the best solution based on the total cost and/or annual cost of financing. Since the case occurs in current time and the CarMax beta is actual, we can assume today’s market conditions (i.e. Last year’s return on the market was an outlier as is this years; therefore, we would like to use a market return of 7% to find the risk premium). The DCF approach and the CAPM approach provide different costs of equity. SML derived returns need not be same as implied discount rates even when CAPM is applicable and markets are efficient. This is because the stock returns and discount rates will be same mathematically only when the discount rates are expected to remain constant over the forecast period. The single period return of CAPM changes every year as the market changes with economic conditions implying that the market discount rates are changing. When the implied discount rates are varying, the ex-ante returns will have no resemblance to the implied discount rate for the year in consideration. Additionally, the stock from this company is private and thus should be adjusted higher as investors would require a higher liquidity premium since the stock is not publicly traded. The method you submitted (averaging the DCF and the CAPM) is a reasonable method of determining the cost of equity. The assumptions I should make on leasing the equipment. First, the company has good credit (they will receive a favorable rate of 10%). The tax rate is given in the problem. Estimated maintenance expenses are $50,000 per year. Though they can finance for a longer period, they can lease for only 3 years. The tentative lease terms call for payments of $260,000 at the end of each year for 3 years. The lease is a guideline lease. The equipment falls into a MACRS 3-year class. Thompkins will want to buy the equipment at the end of the lease. It can purchase at fair market value. The best estimate of the market value is $200,000. Essentially, Section 179 of the IRS tax code allows businesses to deduct the full purchase price of qualifying equipment and/or software purchased or financed during the tax year. That means that if you buy (or lease) a piece of qualifying equipment, you can deduct the FULL PURCHASE PRICE from your gross income. It’s an incentive created by the U.S. government to encourage businesses to buy equipment and invest in themselves.08/05/202015businessfinance

Section 4

Due Week 8: Complete BA Plan including Sections 1, 2, and 3, plus new Section 4: BA Center Location and Projects.In the final portion of the course project, you will choose a location in the organizational structure for a Business Analytics center, and propose two high-priority projects that the center should undertake. You will also review and update the sections of your BA Plan that were written earlier, incorporating any feedback from your professor on those sections, and submit your completed BA Plan document.Write a 1-2 paragraph description (100-400 words) describing how a Business Analytics center for this company should be structured and where it should be located within the organization. This should include whether the BA center should be centralized as a formal organizational unit, or decentralized as a virtual organizational unit (see Exhibit 7.4 in the textbook). Also describe where the BA center should report in the company’s organizational structure (e.g., directly to top management; to the IT department; or to some other department such as marketing, finance, etc.). Explain your choices in terms of the organization’s strategy, maturity, and the expected role of the BA center in the organization.Also, describe two business analytics projects that you believe should be the top priorities for the new BA center to undertake. For each project: (1) state the analytical question to be answered; (2) suggest one or more information sources (such as internal accounting reports, customer surveys, market research, etc.) that could be used in the analysis; (3) identify the general analytical method that could be used for the project (see Exhibit 4.2 in the textbook); (4) describe the potential benefits to the organization of completing the project; and (5) explain how the project relates to the organization’s strategy, objectives, critical success factors, and KPIs identified in previous sections.In choosing your projects, you should take into account which business processes for the organization are most important given its strategic priorities (see Exhibit 3.13 in the textbook), as well as the criteria for assessing and prioritizing BA projects described in Chapter 8.Finally, review and revise all sections of your BA Plan document. Incorporate any needed changes based on the feedback given by your professor on your previous submissions. Run a spell-check and grammar check, and proofread to ensure the entire document is professionally written and error-free. Also check that the entire document is professionally and consistently formatted. Include APA-style references for any sources used in the reference list at the end. At a minimum, you should include a reference for the Nexis Uni database used for the financial data in Section 3, as well as any other sources you consulted.Submit your complete BA Plan document including Sections 1, 2, 3, and 4, and the reference list, to the Week 8: Course Projectassignment.Week 8 Grading CriteriaCategoryPointsPercentDescriptionSection 13015%Section 1: Company Background and Strategy satisfies all content requirements for the section, and incorporates all changes in feedback provided by the professor.Section 23015%Section 2: CSFs and KPIs satisfies all content requirements for the section, and incorporates all changes in feedback provided by the professor.Section 33015%Section 3: Analytics Dashboard Example satisfies all content requirements for the section, and incorporates all changes in feedback provided by the professor.Section 4: BA Center Location2010%Clearly describes the recommended structure and location of a BA center for the organization, and reasonably justifies the recommendation in relation to the organization’s strategy, maturity, and the BA center’s role.

It’s debatable whether we should have included fewer or more, and whether the methods we suggest are optimal. This will always be the case in this field. But we have chosen these particular ones because we find that they have proven to be valuable in the past and because we think they will continue to have great value in the future. Similarly, we could discuss their positioning in the triangle. And we will do so for each of the 11 suggestions, without insisting in any way that we are presenting the one and only truth.Customer Relationship Management ActivitiesCRM activities are one of the processes that historically has been supported by BA. There are several reasons for this. First of all, these are processes that can visibly add value in the very short term, and that own a lot of information— that is, customer data. Primary industries in this field are organizations with stable and long‐term customer relations, such as banks, insurance companies, and telecoms. The names of individual customers are known, and it is possible not only to measure their consumption month by month but also to identify who cancels his or her customer relationship. In the following example, we will take our point of departure in the three focus areas of CRM: getting valuable customers, increasing the value of existing customers, and keeping customers. Digitalization in the form of apps or purchases from the Internet portal, and the subsequent ability to generate customer data and use it for customer dialogue, will however mean that more companies will focus on CRM data. The fact that customers increasingly expect that companies know them and only communicate relevant information to them will also drive the importance of the use of customer data in all channels.22/04/202010businessfinance

2 Sets of 1 discussion and 2 replies

This discussion has 2 parts: After reading the “Ethical Issues” box on page 330 of the required text, devise a plan that will minimize or reduce the impact of these cash flow estimation biases on effective decision-making. The CFO of a firm you just started working for claims “we always have, and always will, use the weighted average cost of capital (WACC) as the rate to discount future expected cash flows from our proposed capital budgeting projects”. What do you think of this strategy? Read section 11-4, pages 399 – 404 in the required text carefully. Submission Instructions: Your initial post should be at least 200 words,formatted and cited in current APA style with support from at least 2 academic sources. Your initial post is worth 8 points. You should respond to at least two of your peers by extending, refuting/correcting, or adding additional nuance to their posts.Your reply posts are worth 2 points (1 point per response.)ETHICAL ISSUESCash Flow Estimation BiasesThe estimation of the cash flows associated with an investment project is the most important step in the capital expenditure evaluation process. If the cash flow estimates associated with a project are inten- tionally or unintentionally biased, a firm’s resources are unlikely to be allocated to the set of investment projects that will maximize shareholder wealth.There are several reasons why managers might produce biased cash flow estimates when preparing capital expenditure project proposals. First, a manager might be tempted to overestimate the revenues or underestimate the costs associated with a project if the manager is attempting to expand the resource base over which he or she has control. By biasing the estimates of a project’s cash flows upward, a manager is likely to receive a larger share of the investment resources of the firm. Because managerial compensa- tion is sometimes tied to the span of job responsibili- ties, managers may be tempted to expand this span of control at the expense of other areas in the firm.Second, some firms tie employee compensation to performance relative to stated objectives—a compen- sation scheme often called management by objective. If a manager is confident that the best estimate of the cash flows from a proposed project is sufficiently large to guarantee project acceptance, the manager may be tempted to reduce these cash flow estimates to a level below the “most likely outcome” level, con- fident that the project will continue to be viewed as an acceptable investment and that it will be funded. How- ever, once the project is under way, the project man- ager will feel less pressure to meet projected performance standards. The downward bias in the cash flow estimates provides a cushion that permits suboptimal management of the project while achiev- ing the objectives enunciated when the project was first proposed.What impact does intentionally biasing cash flow estimates for investment projects have on achieving the goal of shareholder wealth maximization?Post by classmate 1Firms with higher leverage and capital intensity might not have a financial analyst or oversee the cash flow estimation process as most of the forecast could be executed by a simulation method based on past experience or market behavior through software. Firm’s use both types of estimates and measure of financial and operating risks might also need to benchmark themselves against the standard cash flow related ratio like liquidity ratios additionally to estimate risk free cash flow positions. The more the economic life of a project the more uncertain would the pay-back period become and the timing of the discounted cash flows gain importance. More than multiple methods of forecasting, it is important to accurately estimate the discounting rate and cash flow streams over the economic life of the project.The strategy of using WACC as a discount rate to discount the future expected future cash flows from the proposed capital budgeting projects is correct. The free cash flow to the firmmust be discounted using WACC, while free cash flow to equity must be discounted using cost of equity.Post by classmate 2 After reading the “Ethical Issues” box of the required text, I believe seeking diverse outside opinion to counter the overconfidence will lessen the impact of these cash flow estimation biases on effective decision-making. In addition, having a fresh pair of eyes or thoughts can help because it can provide a different perspective. This can be vital when estimating cash flow. Another plan that can be used is to challenge the decision-making process. These plans can only be accomplished by realizing that one can influence and are influenced by the format of the information given. WACC is a financial metric and is commonly used to provide a discount rate for a financed project. This is because the cost of financing the capital is a fairly reasonable price tag to put on the investment. I believe the CFO strategy of using WACC as a discount rate to discount the future expected future cash flows from the proposed capital budgeting projects is right. When reading about the materials in this module, one thing that I learned was that the free cash flow to the firm must be discounted using WACC, while free cash flow to equity must be discounted using the cost of equity.ReferencesMcConnell, J. &.

In this capstone course, you will not only compile your final ePortfolio for submission, you will also put all of your knowledge to use in the development of a final project.Throughout your academic journey, you have been exposed to quite a few issues and concerns related to the healthcare environment. More than likely, there was at least one problem that stood out to you in terms of scope, severity, or perhaps you may have personally experienced this particular issue.Regardless of reason, in this course, you will thoroughly examine this problem, its past and present impact, as well as its potential for continual concern (Chapter 1). You will then analyze the research related to this issue; what is currently known and what is its framework within the field of healthcare (Chapter 2). After your research on the topic is complete, you will then develop an action plan for the problem paying close attention to the resources needed and the complexity of implementation (Chapter 3).Lastly, once your plan is completed, you will then evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of your plan (Chapter 4). Without making revisions at this juncture, this step is merely a review of potential barriers to your plan either from a social or political perspective. You will also include a complete list of references used in your project, compiled in adherence with APA standards for citation (Chapter 5).For a complete overview of the Capstone Project, please review the Capstone Project Outline.Capstone Project Outline/ContentsI.

Complete Problem 1 from the end of Chapter 2: You have just graduated from college and are looking to buy your first car. Money is tight right now, so you are concerned with initial cost as well as ongoing expenses. At the same time, you don’t want to drive a slow, ugly car like your parents do. You have narrowed your choices down to two vehicles: a Honda Enigma and a Bizzarini Booster. Based on the rankings in the table (found under Chapter 2, Problem 1 in the textbook), calculate the value index for each car. Which car provides you with the greatest value? Use formulas to calculate the answer to one decimal point.Required ResourcesTextBozarth, C. C., & Handfield, R. B. (2016). Introduction to operations and supply chain management (4th ed.).

Urgent help with paper needed (nursing experienced people only)

Assignment: Analysis of a Pertinent Healthcare IssueThe Quadruple Aim provides broad categories of goals to pursue to maintain and improve healthcare. Within each goal are many issues that, if addressed successfully, may have a positive impact on outcomes. For example, healthcare leaders are being tasked to shift from an emphasis on disease management often provided in an acute care setting to health promotion and disease prevention delivered in primary care settings. Efforts in this area can have significant positive impacts by reducing the need for primary healthcare and by reducing the stress on the healthcare system.Changes in the industry only serve to stress what has always been true; namely, that the healthcare field has always faced significant challenges, and that goals to improve healthcare will always involve multiple stakeholders. This should not seem surprising given the circumstances. Indeed, when a growing population needs care, there are factors involved such as the demands of providing that care and the rising costs associated with healthcare. Generally, it is not surprising that the field of healthcare is an industry facing multifaceted issues that evolve over time.In this module’s Discussion, you reviewed some healthcare issues/stressors and selected one for further review. For this Assignment, you will consider in more detail the healthcare issue/stressor you selected. You will also review research that addresses the issue/stressor and write a white paper to your organization’s leadership that addresses the issue/stressor you selected.To Prepare:Review the national healthcare issues/stressors presented in the Resources and reflect on the national healthcare issue/stressor you selected for study.Reflect on the feedback you received from your colleagues on your Discussion post for the national healthcare issue/stressor you selected.Identify and review two additional scholarly resources (not included in the Resources for this module) that focus on change strategies implemented by healthcare organizations to address your selected national healthcare issue/stressor.The Assignment (3-4 Pages):Analysis of a Pertinent Healthcare IssueDevelop a 3- to 4-page paper, written to your organization’s leadership team, addressing your selected national healthcare issue/stressor and how it is impacting your work setting. Be sure to address the following:Describe the national healthcare issue/stressor you selected and its impact on your organization. Use organizational data to quantify the impact (if necessary, seek assistance from leadership or appropriate stakeholders in your organization).Provide a brief summary of the two articles you reviewed from outside resources on the national healthcare issue/stressor. Explain how the healthcare issue/stressor is being addressed in other organizations.Summarize the strategies used to address the organizational impact of national healthcare issues/stressors presented in the scholarly resources you selected. Explain how they may impact your organization both positively and negatively. Be specific and provide examples.Looking AheadThe paper you develop in Module 1 will be revisited and revised in Module 2. Review the Assignment instructions for Module 2 to prepare for your revised paper.Posted: 41 minutes agoDue: 08/12/2019Budget: $50Tags: nursingAnswers 0Bids 50Great-WritersPapersGuruSplendid Tutorwizard kimuniversity workDr R Judy MarkThe quA lityjim clairebrilliant answersQuickly answer Catherine Owenskim woodsRESPECT WRITERWendy LewisPROF_TOMMYDr shamille ClaraTerry Robertsmadam-professorprof avrilFavouritewriterWIZARD_KIMEmily ClareEmily MichaelDr_Biyaprofessor.jannetsarapaul2013Miss ProfessorProf. sigmud freudJessica LuisDr Candice_2547Jenny BoomPhd isaac newtonEva GreenDr. ElahiCasey Celiaquality work for allphyllis youngSamann060DexterMastersDrNicNgaoRELIABLE PAPERSChrisProfansRohanSaad FahimLilliana_Smithimhmd.fLiza_JulietSaburBjudge mikeUnique_ProfOther questions 10BIS 220 Week 2 Learning Team Assignment Reflection SummaryAshford 6: – Week 5 – Discussion 1 Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates.

Post Investment hold up

I need a paragraph for the following question:Probably the most important source of capital is human capital. For example, most medical doctors spend years learning to practice medicine. Doctors are willing to make large investments in their human capital because they expect to be compensated for doing so when they begin work. In Canada, the government nationalized the healthcare system and reduced doctors’ compensation.

Reciprocal Inhibition

You can decrease the frequency of any behavior through punishment, but why not give some thought to reciprocal inhibition? Reciprocal inhibition is the process of defining the opposite of the undesirable behavior and reinforcing the positive instead. Reciprocal inhibition can be useful for leaders in helping change behaviors aiming for high reliability. For example, instead of punishing errors, reward quality.In this Assignment you will identify where reciprocal inhibition might be used to improve patient outcomes in quality and patient safety. You will also recommend steps that will foster a culture of quality and recommend at least one strategy for overcoming the challenges of achieving a culture of high reliability.To prepare:Reviewthis Week’s Learning Resources related to creating a culture of high reliabilityThe Assignment:This week’s reading suggests that reciprocal inhibition is a good strategy to change reinforcers in the health care system and that “culture eats strategy.”Considering your organization, or a health care organization you are familiar with,write a 3- to 4-page paper that: Describes how and where reciprocal inhibition might be used to improve patient outcomes in quality and improve patient safety. Explains how using reciprocal inhibition may be an improvement in the culture of quality. Include any steps that will foster a culture of quality in an organization to become a high-reliability organization. Recommend at least one strategy for overcoming the challenges of fostering a culture of high reliability.Note:Your Assignment must be written in standard edited English. Be sure to support your work with at least five high-quality references, including two from peer-reviewed journals. Refer to theEssential Guide to APA Style for Walden Studentsto ensure that your in-text citations and reference list are correct.

Managerial Finance cw2 Management Report Word Count 2,500 Details of the task:CASE STUDY: Williams LimitedWILLIAMS is a limited company, whose head office in based in South Africa. The company has been operation in the UK for the past 10 years. WILLIAMS provides financial services to a number of organisations which include SME’s, property developers and investment property funds in the UK and Africa. For the past 10 years, WILLIAMS has been a profit making firm as it has retained its previous clients, in addition to capturing an increasing share of the market. However, the finance director of WILLIAMS has recently got in touch with your professional consulting firm, and has engaged your firm with the mandate to provide them with an explanation of the cash flow problem that WILLIAMS Limited had been facing. The company is also dependent on the parent based in South Africa for and when required.In the past month there has been a number of meetings in London and South Africa where it has been agreed that WILLIAMS Limited should do their best to expand the business and raise the required capital in England, or perhaps in Europe, so as not to depend so much on cash coming from the parent company all the time. Consequently, the management of WILLIAMS is considering the followings:New SoftwareThe current product that Williams Limited has to offer mostly to specialist developers and investment funds companies is outdated. The company is looking to invest in a new product and there are two proposals on offer. The details of these two proposals are outlined below.Advanced Suite Advanced Suite Draft figures £’000 Year 0 1 2 3 4 5 New Software cost 9,000 Working Capital 850 610 790 310 730 Sales Revenue 3400 6300 7500 8900 9500 Less: Module A (420.00) (600.00) (800.00) (900.00) (1,110.00) Module B (1,010.00) (1,400.00) (1,600.00) (2,100.00) (1,900.00) Overheads (230.00) (240.00) (330.00) (300.00) (300.00) All of the above estimates have been prepared in terms of present day cost and prices. Assume that cash flows arise at the end of each period. In addition Revenues are expected to rise by 4% in price terms per year from year 1 (start of year 2) the budget estimated selling price at start was £120. Overheads and working capital are expected to rise by 4% per year from year 1(start of year 1) The cost of Module A and Module B are expected to rise in line with inflation of 4% per year from the beginning of year 1. The cost of Technicians, who have come from the South Africa have not been taken into consideration in the forecast and are as follows:Technician (T1): Will be paid £120 per hour and expected number of hours for T1 are 1,400hrs. The rate paid is expected to rise in line with inflation at 4% per year from year 2 and the number of hours is expected to reduce by 3% per year, every year from year 2 onwards.Technician 2 (T2): Will be paid £110 per hour and expected number of hours for T2 are 1,400hrs. The rate paid is expected to go up in line with inflation at 4% per year from year 2 and the number of hours is expected to reduce by 3% per year, every year from year 2 onwards.If WILLIAMS Limited invests in Advanced Suite, then the discount rate that would be required to assess the NPV would be 12%. The table above shows the estimated outgoings and inflows for the project.Standard SuiteStandard Suite is the second of two proposals, the expected life of this software will also be 5 years and its working capital requirements, the cost of the new software, expected revenue, Module costs and overheads are as follows: Draft figures Standard Suite £’000 Year 0 1 2 3 4 5 New Software cost 8,500 Working Capital 600 620 820 950 1100 Sales Revenue 5500 6800 9100 10850 11250 Less: Module 1 (330) (520) (800) (1060) (1,450) Module 2 (1,350) (1,860) (2,300) (2,700) (2,900) Overheads (190) (240) (280) (320) (370) All of the above estimates have been prepared in terms of present day costs and prices. Assume that cash flows arise at the end of each period. In addition, you need to take into account the costs of Technicians, inflation and the rise in the revenue, overheads and working capital consideration, which are the same for the Advanced Suite. The selling price per package of the Standard Suite is £550. The discount will also be the same as with Advanced Suite.If WILLIAMS invests in Standard Suite, then the discount rate that would be required to assess the NPV would be 12%.New Drop-in CentreThe manager in charge of sales has just informed your company that they plan to open a Drop-in Centre in London and it is hoped that this Centre will be opened for business on 1April 2020. You have also been informed that to start with, the company will only sell 2 types of service as packages: Entry Level package (ELP) and Advanced Level package (ALP). This will be done to test the market and see if the business will break-even in the same period. These two are the most popular asked for packages and will be offered at £300 for ELP and £400 for ALP.The company has provided you with the following information regarding the costs and estimated sales for the period mentioned above.WILLIAMS plan to put in £6,000 as start-up capital and plan to sell a total of 1320 (combined) of ELP and ALP for the same period. They are not sure which of the two services will produce the most profits for WILLIAMS.Total budgeted sales for each month are as follows: April 440, May 440 and June 440, of which 30% of each month will be for ALP. You will be required to assess the best product combination of sales for the period.To help with the setup of the Centre, the company has just concluded a deal with one of the high street banks to get a loan of £21,000 on the 1st of May 2020. The interest on this loan will be 3.5% to be paid every month. The company will be required to make 12 equal payments to repay the loan starting end of June 2020.Financial informationAs mentioned above the company plans to sell a total of 1260 product packages between 1stApril andJune 2020. The fixed costs for the period are as below: Rent £ 15,500 Telephone £ 1,900 Loan Interest £ 1,470 Insurance £ 6,200 Electricity and Gas £ 3,000 Business Rates £ 4,500 Fixed cost specific to products ELP ALP Marketing 21,000 £ 25,000 Administration £ 7,500 £ 11,500 Staff Salary £ 19,500 £ 23,000 From their costs estimates, the variable cost of the services are £180 for the ELP and £210 for the ALP. The fixed costs are for the whole period, so they are not affected by the level of service. However, the variable costs will increase with services output (ie sales output multiplied with variable cost per product).Revenue from the sale of ELP and ALP will be on the basis of 30% cash in the same month, and theremaining 70% credit to be paid the following month.Requirement:You will be required to write a management report to the management of Williams limited directors inwhich the following points should be discussed.

Write 300 words on the topic and respond to three articles with 150 words each1) Write 300-350 words with 3 peer reviewed references in APA formatDiscuss the importance of managerial accounting as “decision-making tool” in your organization.2) Respond to 1st
article with 150 words A Managerial accounting is a system in which managers identify, analyze, interpret, and communicate information to managers to help them make decisions and achieve business goals. The information collected covers all aspects of accounting that inform the Managerial of activities related to the cost of goods or services purchased by the company. Managing accounting ants use budgets to determine work plans. (Sprinkle, 2006) Performance reports are used to determine deviations from actual results compared to budgets.”Managerial accounting and supervision to assist management in the development of Managerial accounting, decision-making, planning, and product Managerial systems and in developing and executing the company’s strategy.” We use the existing Managerial accounting framework to manage, integrate, and evaluate existing experimental Managerial accounting research. Managerial accounting refers to the performance of tracking internal costs for any business process, which helps the company, company, or individual make decisions about the product, operations, and investments in the market. (“Managerial,” n.d.). Companies need a Managerial accounting to know their budget, their value, and then allocate resources in production, sales, and investment. The role of Managerial accounting is very important for the well-being of the company. Its role and responsibility are so great that misunderstanding or neglecting any work plan by the managing accounting ant can also hurt the company’s future.Thompson et al. (2009) note that the Managerial accounting develops ideas for manufacturing and service organizations. Therefore, Managerial accounting techniques can provide strategies for efficiency and cost-effectiveness, which can be used primarily as a competitive tool for growth and profitability in the banking sector. Durand (2003) argues that Managerial reporting is often not used as a powerful mechanism for competitive advantage. Frank (1990) considers the preparation of Managerial and non-Managerial reports for Managerial and accounting reports for non-governmental groups such as shareholders, creditors, regulatory agencies, and the tax office. The Managerial Accounting provides this experience as an experience that encompasses the following three areas:a) Strategic: Raising the role of Managerial accounting as a strategic partner in the organization;b) Outcome Management: Developing business decision-making and organizational Managerial experience;c) Risk Managementa: Support the framework and practices for identifying, measuring, managing and reporting risks to the organization’s goals.Hilton (2008) argues that Managerial accounting ants play a leading role in their teams and provide valuable information that guides the company in achieving its strategic goals. In addition, the division of liability centers may depend on the objectives and methodology of Managerial accounting and analysis, as liability centers may be commercial banking units, corporations, representatives, or departments. Demand centers for retail, corporate, and others can be built based on a commercial bank or banking sector in which the bank operates. Therefore, the construction of the liability center depends on the profitability of any bank. In addition to the traditional services offered by a commercial bank for Managerial purposes, a new assortment of services offered by a Managerial institution can be created by grouping operations into a single system operating system. The relationship between transaction accounting for Managerial accounting and analysis needs to be tightly defined, resulting in the commercial bank being limited to its liability centers, properly determining its revenues and expenses, and creating favorable Managerial proposals. The following are objectives and requirements:  Determining revenues, expenses, and results for each department;    Results of banking operations and services;    Budgeting revenues and expenses for departments and operations;    Tracking and monitoring performance to obtain results and information needed for Managerial.Issues to be solved by using a Managerial accounting include: creating the most suitable process for planning and budgeting for the bank; Profitability control over various products, work areas, departments, and subsidiaries; Control over the structure and timing of assets and liabilities; Monitoring risk levels and capital efficiency; Making Managerial decisions based on factual information about specific transactions and circumstances in the bank; Modeling the results of some activities, analytical results; Improving decision-making processes in banking products; Optimization relationships with customers by assessing customer performance and customer quality; Other expenses; Creating an efficient system of managerial accounting ability for results.3) Respond to 2nd
article with 150 words Managerial accounting refers to a kind of accounting that offers financial information to company decision-makers. Managerial accounting helps to plan, forecast, and budget company operations. This process helps to establish the direction of the organization over a period, either for months or years. A capital budget for the organization is vital since it details an investment’s cost to be undertaken in the future. The budget also outlines projections and costs of acquisitions and equipment. Secondly, managerial accounting helps to guide decisions on project management (Tarver, 2019). Such choices as capital, cash outlays, and debt to finance the project is possible via the use of managerial accounting. Thus, managerial accounting helps to deliver a project within the budget and at the desired time with a focus on its profitability. Besides, managerial accounting is vital to performance tracking. Real-time decisions are possible since the executive has data for a project. Therefore, they can measure performance against budget and forecasts. This move is crucial since the organization will avoid cost overrun. Hence, it maintains a competitive advantage.Additionally, managerial accounting utilizes data provided. Financial and budgeting projections alongside balanced scorecards guide the management concerning the future of the organization (Freedman, 2019). A focus of this information by managers is critical since they make decisions for continuous improvement, which are justifiable because of the intelligent breakdown of the organization’s data. Lastly, managerial accounting helps to establish costing techniques based on the activities the organization should undertake. Activity-based costing techniques help to determine the actions necessary for producing and servicing a product line. Also, these techniques help the producer to advertise their product to the desired customer with a more significant potential to bring profit to the company.4) Respond to 3rd
article with 150 words A management accounting department is considered as one of the essential units of a company. Few entrepreneurs do not understand it due to its under the radar style of work. Management accountants guide the overall business strategy by creating internal analyses and are considered as insiders. Their job description details the job as to prepare internal financial reports, accounts to help the manager’s decision-making process, and records. In simple terms, we can say their job is complex financial data, which they turn into actionable insights (Contributor and Contributor, 2020).Below are a few of the reasons why management is considered as important in decision making in an organization.Relevant Cost Analysis: The information used by the company management is provided by the managerial accounting to determine what should be sold and how to sell it. To do this and evaluate this decision, an accounting manager will examine the costs that might differ between each product’s advertising alternatives and ignoring common costs. This entire process is called relevant cost analysis (Contributor and Contributor, 2020).Activity-based costing techniques: After relevant cost analysis, the company has determined what products they need to sell. The business will plan to determine to whom they should sell those products. With the help of activity-based costing techniques, small business management can take advantage to determine the activities that are required to produce and service a product line. By doing this, the company will have an advantage in deciding which customers are more or less profitable and intern it will allow businesses to focus more on advertising toward those customers who are the most profitable (Why Management Accounting Is Important in Decision-Making, 2020).Make or buy analysis: The main use of managerial accounting information is to provide all the necessary information used in manufacturing. With the completion of making or buy analysis, the company can determine which choice is profitable as the owner can consider whether to make or buy a component needed to manufacture the first product of the company (Why Management Accounting Is Important in Decision-Making, 2020).

BUS 5110Managerial AccountingUnit 3IntroductionCost management is important for all businesses and is used to plan and control the budget. This is done by analysing business practices, predicting expenditures in advance and reducing the chance of over spending in relation to income. Using the client provided data for a business involved in the catering and events industry we can evaluate how productive and effective her business is.Provide an accurate solution.We can see from the data in the attached costing sheet that the company has a break even point of 3158 events. To come to this conclusion, we calculated the revenue per event (Current revenue / number of events) $22,500,000 / 5000 = $4,500. We also require our Contribution margin (Revenue per event – Variable cost per event) $4,500 – $2,600 = $1,900. To calculate the Breakeven point, we simply take the Fixed cost and divide that by the Contribution margin = 6,000,000 / 1,900 = 3157.89Hypothetically, if the company decided they’d like to improve their revenue and increase their profits from $3,500,000 to $5,000,000 we can use the data to calculate the number of events required to reach that target. Using the Units to Achieve a Target Income formula (Total fixed costs + Target income) / Contribution margin per unit = (6,000,000 + 5,000,000) / 1,900 = 5789.47 = 5789 events (Walther, L. M. & Skousen, C.J., 2009).Provide a narrative that defines and discusses the purpose of assigning cost categories of fixed and variable costs. Operating a business incurs a range of costs. These can be defined as either fixed costs which don’t change in relation to activity and variable costs which do. These costing structures will likely differ between businesses and industries. Companies have even been known to use different costing structures between different internal departments. (CFI., n.d.)Many fixed costs are going to be unavoidable and come from the simple operational side of your business. Costs such as depreciation, taxes and rent will likely remain unchanged however other fixed costs such as advertising budgets are more discretionary. Variable costs are also able to be altered depending on the size and scale of your business. For example, order quantities can be increased to bring unit costs down however before committing to such decisions forecasting your sales based on this should also be carried out to ensure you don’t end up grossly overstocked (Walther, L. M. & Skousen, C.J., 2009).In order to maximise profits companies are required to minimise or eradicate unnecessary costs any way they can, ideally with no impact on the quality of the final product. A manager must understand both of these categories and the importance they play in the overall running of the business if they’re ever going to effectively improve the business model, reduce costs and remain profitable.Provide a narrative that defines and discusses the relationship of variable costs to contribution margin.Contribution margin is calculated by sales revenues minus variable costs and represents the profit generated for each product or unit sold. This can be measured as a percentage or as a dollar figure. One of the most important factors of contribution margin is that it remains fixed on a per unit basis irrespective of the number of units manufactured or sold. (Investopedia Staff., 2019, February 12)Because only variable costs change based on units of production, fixed costs have no direct impact on contribution margin. Items such as components and materials used for production can be purchased in larger quantities in order to reduce base unit costs and increase the final number of units produced. As these variable costs go down your contribution margin on your final product will increase. (Walther, L. M. & Skousen, C.J., 2009).Provide a narrative that discusses the limitations of the data.As helpful as CVP is to calculate the profitability of a company based on fixed and variable costs, it does have its limitations. Due to the number of data estimations required to calculate, it can lack accuracy and should be considered an approximation instead of a guarantee. For example, CVP assumes that both total costs and total sales are linear however we know that scales of economy can impact costs and large purchases can often lead to a decrease in cost per unit which wouldn’t be represented in this analysis. Another assumption made which can change dramatically depending on external factors is the demand for the provided service. Demand can be forecast to some extent however this yet again add another estimation to the analysis which can easily change. (Agarwal, R., 2015, May 13)Provide a narrative that speculates what data is missing from the case.Several other fixed costs pertaining to any business is missing from the provided date. Tax payments are a significant component of fixed costs which should be considered. If taxes aren’t added to the calculation we can only assume the fixed price would rise and our analysis would have to be re-done in order for it to be more accurate.The client data suggests that the tents and other structures as well as trucks and vehicles are only “allocated costs” and not actual costs. Even though these are considered fixed costs, circumstances can change, and these allocated costs may increase or decrease dramatically. For example, a rise in fuel costs will increase the allocated costs of trucks and vehicles.    Other missing variables specific to this example include fixed costs office rent and storage costs as well as the variable cost of utilities. All of which should be recorded and added to your costing plan. Without these added into your CVP it will give an inaccurate representation of your breakeven point and you could end up losing money.

IMPACT OF CORONA VIRUS ON THE TOURISM INDUSTRY OF UAE1. INTRODUCTIONThe COVID-19 pandemic and the steps taken to curtail its spread have a strong effect on the tourism market. According to the United Nations (UNWTO), in 2020 the COVID-19 pandemic would result in a 20 to 30 percent reduction of the tourism industry. This estimate is likely to be cautious for countries that rely on foreign tourists, as recent data on daily air traffic show a decrease of nearly 80% since January2020.While several economic sectors are supposed to rebound as restrictive restrictions are removed, the pandemic has a longer-lasting effect on foreign tourism. This is primarily attributed to decreased consumer trust and the likelihood that the free migration of human beings would be limited longer. COVID-19 impact on tourism The link between Coronavirus (COVID-19) and News, Analysis and Resources The average recovery time for visitors to a destination was about 19 months in previous viral epidemics, according to World Travel and Tourism Commission (WTTC).The rapid, severe and undoubtedly protracted downturn in the travel and tourism industry has forced international tourism countries to depend heavily on their finances. This involve the tiny developing island countries (SIDS), which are not only most fragile because they are heavily tourist-dependent but also because any shock of this size is challenging for tiny economies to cope with. On average, according to WTTC statistics, the tourism sector accounts for almost 30% of the SIDS gross domestic product (GDP). Of the Maldives, Seychelles, St. Kitts and Nevis and Grenada, this proportion is more than 50%. In general, travel and tourism raise around $30 billion annually in SIDS. A 25% decrease in tourism receipts would result in $7.4 billion or 7.3% decrease in GDP. The decline in certain SIDS may be considerably larger, hitting 16% on the Maldives and Seychelles.The COVID-19 pandemic is projected to contribute, for several SIDS, to large levels of sales losses immediately without the requirement for an alternate source of foreign currency revenues to fund international debt and pay for imports.Devastating economic consequences Countries can generally cope with economic storms through additional debt or by using foreign reserves that are available.Nevertheless, access to global capital markets is becoming more restricting, particularly for small countries like SIDS, which are mostly highly indebted and not quite diversified. The SIDS Group’s foreign debt accounts for an total of 72.4% of GDP, rising up to 200% in the Seychelles and the Bahamas.Global reserves are usually low, with several SIDS only having adequate reserves for a few months of imports. Despite these figures, it is clear that the economic effects of the pandemic are disastrous for all of the SIDS without external assistance. Immediate financial needs By considering the economic impact of reduced tourism revenues (assuming a 25% decline in tourism receipts ) and restoring the minimum level of import coverage (three months), it is possible to provide a rough estimate of each country’s immediate financial needs to offset the damage of the pandemic. SIDS is reportedly in search of nearly $5.5 billion to combat the negative impact of the pandemic on their economies. The Maldives are in need of $1.2 billion because of their reliance on tourism sales, led by the Bahamas and Jamaica.The Indian tourism industry is expected to book Rs 1.25 trillion in revenue in calendar 2020 as part of a decrease in hotel shutdown and flight suspension following the onset and spread of the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. A research by Treatment Ratings shows that the percentage is 40% smaller than the 2019 year.The report assumes the tourism impact of the pandemic to be around 50% during January and February 2020, while in March alone, it could be 70 % higher after international flights are suspended. The Indian tourist industry is expected to book a revenue loss of Rs 69,400 crore in April-June, indicating a 30 percent loss year-on-year (y-o – y).”In the course of H2 2020, assuming the virus impact allowance subsidies, we expect FTAs will still be lower with a FEE impact by approximately 50 per cent, reaching the Rs 56.150 compared with Rs 112.300 crore in H2 2019,” the report said.

Tourism has been one of the key popular images of COVID-19 in foreign media in the realm of public health. The essence of the tourism mechanism implies that tourism has also led to the spread of the disease and has endured the effects of the disease in the tourism benefit and supply chains. The global reach of this disease and the implementation of conventional disease controls in the form of quarantine, reduced mobility and isolation, together with a variety of sector-specific impacts, including transport, travel and reservation, hostels, restaurants, conventions and events and attraction have had a dramatic impact on international tourism and home affairs.To maps out the effect of COVID-19 on tourism and the sector’s reaction at different scales and to contribute for a deeper understanding, Current issues in tourism call for analytical papers based on the influence of COVID-19 on economies, locations, organisations, businesses, customers, locations, transit areas and tourism transport. These correspondence are especially tailored to CIT study letters and study observations, but we also accept more detailed submissions, including those attempting to recognize shifts in the course of time as a consequence of COVID-19, or to add to a wider theoretical view of stability, crisis and catastrophe. Although all COVID-19 articles must be checked by colleagues, we must try to publish them as quickly as possible in order to help spread related work.Not only has the global pandemic of the new corona stopped entire socio-economic structures, it also challenged globalization and corporate global operations. Paradoxically, the possible effects and alternate consequences are still uncertain. But in most weakening economic sectors a permanent and fresh start is required to rapidly restore and reclaim the market, employment and company functions. Conventionally, an illness was used to target disadvantaged populations in their diet with food, safety deprivation, and they typically were the poor citizens of community. Ironically, the latest Corona virus first struck overseas tourists and sparked the pandemic during flight, which primarily challenged the wealthy social class worldwide.Because tourism is one of the world’s largest and fastest growing sectors, after the Covid 19 pandemic, it is expected to play an significant role in restoring socio-economic stability. It is a big contributor to the economies of the Iceland and one of India ‘s main industries that produce much required foreign currency. Long-suffering tourism on the island was recently hit hard by the Easter bombing in many areas including in the country’s luxurious hotels. The tourism industry in India is in danger of having the first successful check conducted by the Indian national COVID-19 who was a local patient on 10 March 2020. The victims were again a tourism team, who worked with a group of Italian visitors for a 52-year-old tour guide. The continuing threats to the country arise.Tourism with effect to the outbreak of the virus led to the suspension of the visas for tourists on 11 March 2020 in government hospitals, which includes eight foreigners, following the new developments.Unfortunately, this exponential spread of the virus actually exceeded 233 (as at 15 April 2020 and continues to grow), even as the specific government activity to defend citizens against the epidemic is well managed and treated properly. As a consequence, aviation has been one of the main contributors to the global transport of the virus, and has created tremendous strain on foreign transportation and aviation activities , particularly the airline industry. Recently, it has been reported that Qantas has accepted virus infection through a wide number of its staff, which is a global problem. As an business umbrella activity, the shipping, leisure, hotel and MICE sectors are currently facing massive challenges. This review critically evaluates the global and local context of the outbreak, the impact of the outbreak and recommendations for a rapid recovery (short and long term).GLOBAL PANDEMIC OF NOVel CORONA (COVID 19) Much human longevity in the modern world can be traced to tourism. International tourism has recorded sustained progress for the ten consecutive year, according to the World Tourism Organisation (2020), with 1.5 billion foreign tourist arrivals in 2019 and an expected 1.8 billion global tourist arrivals in 2030 (UN news, 2017). The reporting of the COVID 19 or the Corona outbreak started in the province of Hubei (Wuhan) City in India in November 2019, and spread around the world by March 2020 was remarkable in the world history as the world’s most challenging tragedy following decades may be the Second World War. Effective constructive and preventive steps will tackle the problem creatively in view of the current circumstance and resolve potential challenges to the socio-economic well-being of everybody who has the room for expanded travel and tourism.However, decisions to regulate people’s and goods movements primarily impact sectors such as tourism, as tourism involves transportation, sea transport, handling of food, accommodation, entertainment, leisure etc. Despite the pandemic of Covid 19 on Indian tourism, page 2 of 19 states that India is best known for managing the COVID 19 pandemic than other countries in the world, and that quarantine and medical facilities too have been provided for foreigners while other developing countries have declared that non-residents quit the region, personal appliances, etc. In the future, therefore, this situation would be good for flourishing India tourism, even if it gains losses today.As a country with much less experience of global epidemics over the last few decades, there was no clear technical agenda for such a worse tragedy in India. However, with this limited experience, India was the first country after India to undertake the mitigation and control measures necessary for COVID 19. Also India has taken measures as cases have begun to be identified of deaths from the region. Before India’s first case, the Indian government began with quarantining and some specific health measures and airport preparedness, with thermal scanners. In the first case of Corona infected patients (a Chinese tourist) the second patient was reported from India on February 18, 2020.CHAPTER 2 LITERATURE REVIEWJ.

In this context, tourism as the country’s third largest foreign exchange operator has collapsed totally with the fear of travel and the need to maintain social distance. Over the last 40 days, visa requirements were imposed and the international airport closed, the countries and cities were curfewed and locked, allowing citizens to return to their countries with different flight arrangements in various countries. At present it’s a bad problem, because the entire planet is shut away or socially isolated, people are reluctant to book something before the agony of the outbreak subsides and the epidemic is regulated in the planet.Remuzzi, A., & Remuzzi, G. (2020), suggested that tourism is a networked industry with many other business sectors, including hotel, local, education, finance, agriculture, medical, travel and transport, construction, real estate, retail and vice versa. Since the country’s economy is heavily influenced by tourism, it is important to research how industry dependence will influence the recovery of its key sub-sectors after a pandemic subsides. The indirect effect on the travel and tourism sector can not be conveniently and necessarily calculated in this sense is a major loss in both the short and long term. Since India is a country which plays a major role in developing countries, relying heavily on the services sector, the tourism industry. Over the past year it was 12,5 per cent for travel and tourism, whereas the ratio of travel and tourism to GDP is 19,4 per cent on page 4. It is also evident that the tourism industry is benefiting developed countries tremendously. Protecting this industry will therefore be a major investment in the countries’ potential prospects for growth. Therefore, if we have to concentrate on the future development of India through the tourism sector, we must protect all the tourism service providers.Daily FT. (2020). Suggested that there are many service providers, including accommodation providers, travel agencies, event coordinators and transport providers. They earn no revenue from their tourism goods in the current scenario. It is therefore necessary to protect these sectors and to retain them to meet the country’s potential tourism demand. Otherwise the money might be diverted to other sectors under which the tourism sector faces the struggle to locate its service suppliers in the future. To resolve this condition, it is ideal to temporarily free them from their company debts, help maintain their staff and use tourism services such as hotels as quarantine centers, with a monthly rental to the organisation. The technologies and media advances available are expected to overcome this emergency in a short space of time. Protecting the tourism industry will also be a strong investment in the country’s future growth.Litvinova (2020), suggested that one of the main foundations of contemporary economies and social structures is urban tourism and hospitality. Similarly, for several countries in the world, the hotel industry constitutes a major revenue generation market similar to India. After a global recession, though, the tourism and hospitality sector is also the first to be severely affected. According to the March 2020 research published by the multinational hospitality data company STR, it reveals that the current COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic has seen a dramatic decline in occupancy levels of nearly 96% around the world’s hospitality industry. This pandemic also affects India’s tourism sector and the data from the Indian Tourism Development Authority showed a decrease of 30% from total tourist arrivals as compared to the 1st quarter of 2019.Gioannini,(2020) suggested that the decline in Indian tourism revenues may range between USD 107 million – USD 319 million, according to ADB’s March 6, 2020 estimates. The epidemic influenced both the public and private sectors in the country and is visible in the activities of the Colombo Stock Exchange. Moreover, this form of crisis has a detrimental effect on the country ‘s attractiveness to foreign direct investments. Though recognizing the current and post-negative effects of this pandemic, the Government of India (GoSL) has taken many action on page 5 of 19 to allow India to react to the COVID-19 pandemic. Indefinite curfew, transport restrictions and vigorous social distancing initiatives throughout the world are some of the main steps that the Government has reportedly implemented in order to control the spread of the Covid 19 epidemic.Daily FT. (2020). Suggested that there is no question that this pandemic has had a great deal of adverse effects on Indian Tourism, hotel and MICE industries. The tourism industry in India has slowly recovered since the April 2019 Easter attacks. India was also a country that eradicated the civil war for 30 years in 2009. It is therefore important to enhance public safety preparedness in the country and to take appropriate steps to cope with certain forms of unforeseen risks / challenges. Any of the main suggestions were then created to resolve the adverse impacts of the epidemic of corona-19. First, it is important to spread the positive news to potential tourists through news networks and social media platforms. Maintaining foreign promotional drives is also an significant factor in Indian tourism and hospitality marketing and promotion. Furthermore, since pre-paid rates are unlikely to be booked with current market uncertainties, the removal of non-cancelation fees is highly recommended.Remuzzi, A., & Remuzzi, G. (2020), suggested that furthermore, encouraging convenience levels and allowing visitors to switch their reservations to a new date is another effective tactic to grow the hotel company for emergency cancels coverage. In addition , it is essential to amend existing hotel policies in a timely manner, such as flexic cancelation policies, flexibly charges for all services and ensuring strict hygiene policies. The usage of simplicity as a key marketing tool is highly encouraged, because it can help draw a number of companies. Given the current scenario, citizens are fearful of traveling to city-limited resorts, encouraging remote resorts is another effective tactic to draw visitors. Particularly resort-type hotels, environmentally sustainable hotels and remote attractions / locations focused on nature and culture may have great potential to promote themselves. Such tactics will also help draw visitors from MICE and raise F&B sales. Since this type of crisis has an effect on global hospitality, it is important to recognize the value of domestic tourism promotion Page 6 of 19. In particular, virtually all hotels will lower rates in circumstances which minimize the perishability of the facility.Chinazzi, M., Davis, J. T., Ajelli, M., Gioannini, C., Litvinova, M., Merler, S (2020) suggested that it will be also a perfect chance for experienced visitors to use a hotel or utilize facilities at even cheaper costs in a hotel. Around the same period, it is often advised that versatile resources be marketed rather than value added resources. Due to the pandemic situation, people are extremely concerned about their health and safety. It is also necessary to take some additional time to clean up the whole hotel. These strategies will have a positive effect on ensuring clean safety and a safe environment for guests. Finally, joint approaches between the public and private sectors are suggested. Specially, government could initiate tax reduction schemes (for certain period of time) for both micro and macro level business owners, could think of introducing interest-free capital loan schemes and job guarantees for permanent carder employees.RESEARCH METHODOLOGY
The goal of the analysis is to calculate the effect on the tourism industry in India of the incidence of corona virus. The secondary approach for analysis has been applied. Several literature records, journal articles, work or thesis reports, government documents, etc., is regarded as gathering the details required for the study. For data analysis, detailed literature analyses also gathered secondary data. Government statistics on corona virus incidences have been obtained. In order to understand the effect of the Corona virus on the Chinese tourist industry, statistical data from renowned and genuine data sources were collected. Research reveals that corona virus activity in India has major consequences worldwide. Global tourists have cancelled their visit to India programs, and Chinese visitors are forbidden from entering places that are monitored. The fast dissemination of the Corona virus in India interrupted people’s usual lives in India. This apprehension has influenced the domestic and foreign tourism industry. The airlines have recently cancelled all services to and from India, to avoid the infection from being exported to other nations. This has significantly influenced the economy of the region. The intensification of the Corona virus is projected to have a long-term effect on India’s tourism industry.RESEARCH OBJECTIVES1. To study about the corona virus and its various factors2.

The stabilization will be gradually paralleled with the improvement of other industries, including the war against the epidemic and economic growth. In response to the changing conditions, the measures proposed must be implemented gradually. Therefore, the welfare of tourists and workers has become a key priority for stakeholders in the hospitality business. Effective publicity and advertising initiatives both domestically and abroad will be implemented in order to restore company losses and re-establish the good reputation of visitors. Furthermore, the marketing of “Flexi-services” is another competitive strategy for gaining new clients. Thus, offering variable costs, annulment rules, versatile work climate, etc. will help the business hospitality industry’s long-term survival. The MICE industry was one of the first to feel its impact and one of the hit hardest. Hundreds of activities around the globe have been canceled following the start of the outbreak. And this will have a direct effect on the Sri Lankan MICE industry and the country’s growth. It is also vital and will play a key role in the global recovery from Covid-19. Digital and digital conferences also serve as two alternative alternatives to explore in the face of uncertainty so we will reap the amount of benefits by growing our financial advantages, increasing participation, measurability so promoting change.REFERENCESChinazzi, M., Davis, J.

CaseReportexample

Started in 1927 as a simple beverage stand in Washington D.C., Marriott Corporation has grown into a leading company in the lodging and food service industry in the United States. With its three (major) business involvements, lodging/hotel development and operating, contract-based food service and restaurant operations, the Marriott Corporation has an extensive portfolio of assets, generating a whopping $223M profits of a $6.5B revenue in 1987. Weighted share for each branch expressed in appendix A.Aligned with financial theory, spreading your investments across several industries is a tool for minimizing your unsystematic risk. However, this also raises some complications regarding the accuracy of its financial calculations. More specifically, if the corporation is able to make good decisions about investment options and risk management associated with said investments when it operates in such large variety of industries. Marriott is aware of the potential skewing in its projected numbers, and have taken certain steps to combat this. Most notably, when calculating the cost of capital and debt, they chose to view each division as an independent company, in additional to the mother company. However, Mr. Dan Cohrs, VC of project finance, has expressed some concerns regarding the company’s financial management, and its effect on the accuracy on the financial results, Before addressing the problems stated above, it is important to understand them in the contexts of their financial strategy. Marriott Corporation lists 4 strategies related to financial management- Manage rather than own hotel assets- Invest in projects that increase shareholder value- Optimize the use of debt in the capital structure- Repurchase undervalued sharesThe first one is a common partnership structure, designed to share risk with willing participants. Marriott conducts market research, develop plans and evaluates the financials, and when completed, sells the assets while retaining operating control. The last move separates them from usual real estate developers, and allows them to negotiate ownership over some of the cash flows (usually around 3% of revenue and 20% of profits). The second one is not a controversial one, as firms task of increasing shareholder value is widely considered a pillar stone in the financial world[1]. As investments comes with uncertainty, the accuracy of the hurdle rate used is crucial to whether projections will come true. Here lies a key component in the initial problem, as hurdle rates is based on a wide variance of factors. When operating in different industries, the factors will be different, so Marriott will have to adjust accordingly.The third one regarding debt structure is also a crucial part of the financial decision making. Marriott favors the use of interest coverage ratio (ICR) over debt/equity ratios, meaning that the interest lies in their ability to service their debt, rather than trying to strive for a targer capital structuring.Lastly, their open market strategy involves active participation in the movement of its public stocks. By regularly calculating what they saw to be the “true” value of their shares, they vowed to repurchasing shares if the markets perceived value of the stock (i.e. …) drops substantially below their perceived “real” price. They would by this act as arbitragers, profiting from what they saw as market inefficiency. They would always favor this strategy over revaluing their calculations, which relates to the initial problem.Returning to Mr. Cohrs’ concerns, we aim to assist Marriott Corporation in calculating an accurate discount rate, more specifically the weighted average cost of capital (WACC). The WACC is a financial tool which calculates the cost of capital, weighing it proportionally for its sources of capital (equity and debt). This functions as an opportunity cost of investments with similar risk, and is crucial in every financial valuation. This will be done for the corporation and its three divisions, aligned with the intended concerns. Appendix B goes more in depth of WACC.Appendixes:Appendix A: Marriot Corporation Revenue Profit Lodging 41% 51% Food service 46% 33% Restaurants 13% 15% Total 100% – 100% – Appendix B:where r_e and r_d are the cost of equity and debt, respectively. While r_d is usually the interest rate on the relevant debt, adjusted for corporate tax rate due to tax deduction, r_e can be calculated in a variety of ways, based on the information available and the intended use. Examples areE, D and V is equity, debt and value respectively. While Equity is usually calculated with market values (P/S * Number of shares), debt is often calculated using book values from the spread sheet (Long term debt + Current portion of long term debt). Value is their combined value, hence the weighing in the WACC formula.[1] “Few trends could so thoroughly undermine the very foundations of our free society as the acceptance by corporate officials of a social responsibility other than to make as much money for their stockholders as possible. This is a fundamentally subversive doctrine.”– Milton Friedman

Uber Sees Path to Profitability After Blow From CoronavirusRide-hailing giant signals more cost cuts as demand shrinks and losses mountThe ride-hailing company has deferred its profitability hopes until next year.PHOTO:DARRYL DYCK/THE CANADIAN PRESS/ASSOCIATED PRESSBy Robert Wall, Updated May 7, 2020 7:07 pm ETWall Street Journal, WSJ.comUber TechnologiesInc.UBER5.79%chief Dara Khosrowshahi mapped a revised path to profitability after the coronavirus pandemic undermined ridership for the company resulting in a larger first-quarter loss.Mr. Khosrowshahi said Thursday that Uber plans $1 billion in fixed-cost cuts, including lowering marketing expenses, deferring capital expenditures and a recently announced 14% reduction of staff. “Reaching profitability as soon as possible remains a strategic priority for us. We believe the disruption caused by Covid-19 will impact our time line by a matter of quarters and not years,” the CEO told analysts on a conference call.Those measures could put the ride-hailing company in a position to be profitable in 2021, Chief Financial Officer Nelson Chai said on the call. Uber had targeted this year for reaching that milestone on an adjusted basis before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, but withdrew the forecast in April because of the sharp drop in demand caused by the health crisis.Uber shares, up more than 11% on the day, were ahead 8% in aftermarket trading.Smaller rival Lyft Inc. also has shelved its profitability target and embarked on a cost-cutting effort that it says will make it easier to turn profitable once ridership recovers. “The actual timing will depend on the speed of the recovery. It could be earlier or later.” Chief Financial Officer Brian Roberts said Wednesday.Uber and Lyft both said they have seen a slight pickup in ridership in recent weeks after demand plummeted mid-March as shelter-in-place restrictions were imposed across much of the U.S. to stem the coronavirus outbreak. Overall for the first quarter, Uber said the number of trips was up 7% from a year earlier, but down 13% from 2019’s final quarter.Uber on Thursday reported a net loss of $2.94 billion on sales of $3.54 billion in the three months ended March 31, compared with a net loss of $1.09 billion and sales of $3.1 billion a year earlier. The larger loss includes $2.1 billion in pretax write-downs on some of Uber’s investments that have lost value because of the coronavirus crisis. Analysts surveyed by FactSet had expected a $1.38 billion net loss on sales of $3.53 billion for the quarter just ended.Uber posted a $612 million first-quarter loss on an adjusted basis before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, which excludes costs linked to its Covid-19 response. The company said its response, which included measures such as offering health-care workers free rides and providing protective gear to drivers, took $19 million from its top line and added $5 million in costs.One bright spot was Eats, Uber’s food-delivery business. It has thrived as people stuck at home have relied on such services to get meals from some of their favorite restaurants. Eats gross bookings surged 52% from last year’s first quarter to $4.68 billion.“While our rides business has been hit hard by the ongoing pandemic, we have taken quick action to preserve the strength of our balance sheet, focus additional resources on Uber Eats, and prepare us for any recovery scenario,” Mr. Khosrowshahi said in a statement.He said there were signs of ridership recovering after plunging 80% year-on-year in April, though “the recovery is uneven.” In Georgia and Texas, where shelter-in-place rules have eased, gross bookings are up 43% and 50%, respectively, from their recent lows. Hong Kong, he said, is back to 70% of pre-crisis gross bookings levels.And growth at Uber Eats, Mr. Khosrowshah said, was poised to remain strong, with millions of new customers having tried the service. Uber has shifted some of its rideshare drivers idled by falling trip demand to satisfy the strong food-delivery demand.Lyft, which reported earnings on Wednesday, said ridership fell 75% in April and will likely take time to fully recover.“Even as shelter-in-place orders and travel restrictions are modified or lifted, we anticipate that continued social distancing, altered consumer behavior and expected corporate cost cutting will be significant headwinds for Lyft,” Chief Executive Logan Green told analysts. The company plans to trim about 17% of its staff as part of an effort to cut expenses by $300 million this year.Uber on Wednesday said it was cutting about 3,700 workers and that Mr. Khosrowshahi agreed to waive his base salary for the rest of the year. “We are continuing to look at all levers to ensure our core rides and Eats businesses emerge from this crisis stronger than ever,” Mr. Chai, the finance chief, said in the statement Thursday.He said that as growth returns, Uber would add staff but probably at a slower pace than precrisis as it focuses on efficiency in a post-pandemic environment.Beyond the current economic slowdown, Uber and Lyft also face pressure from regulators and lawmakers for classifying their drivers as contract workers rather than employees. On Tuesday,California sued the companies, citing the state’s gig-economy law that took effect Jan. 1, saying their treatment of drivers deprives them of rights such as paid sick leave and unemployment insurance—issues made more visible during the pandemic.Despite the difficult period, Uber is continuing to invest in ride-sharing activities. The company led a $170 million funding round in electric-scooter rental startup Lime, which had its own round of job cuts last month. Lime, in a statement Thursday, said that as part of the transaction it was buying Uber’s electric-scooter unit Jump.Uber contributed $85 million to the round as part of a deal that includes an ability to acquire 100% of Lime in two years, according to a person familiar with the terms. The Lime service will be integrated into the Uber app. It also allows Uber to cut its own bike and service operations, which make up much of the company’s other bets segment. In the first quarter, that segment reported a $63 million adjusted operating loss, compared with a $42 million loss a year earlier.https://www.wsj.com/articles/ubers-first-quarter-loss-balloons-on-coronavirus-impact-11588882349?mod=business_minor_pos7

Federal Crop Insurance Corp v. Merrill (1947)332 U.S. 380CERTIORARI TO THE SUPREME COURT OF IDAHOSyllabus1. The Federal Crop Insurance Corporation, a wholly government owned corporation created by the Federal Crop Insurance Act to insure producers of wheat against crop losses due to unavoidable causes, including drought, promulgated and published in the Federal Register regulations specifying the conditions on which it would insure wheat crops, including a provision making “spring wheat which has been reseeded on winter wheat acreage” ineligible for insurance.  Without actual knowledge of this provision, a wheat grower applied to the Corporation’s local agent for insurance on his wheat crop, informing the local agent that most of it was being reseeded on winter wheat acreage, but this information was not included in the written application.  The Corporation accepted the application subject to the terms of its regulations.  Most of the crop on the reseeded acreage was destroyed by drought.Held:  the Corporation is not liable for the loss on the reseeded acreage.  Pp. 381-386. [332 U.S. 381]2. Having been published in the Federal Register, the Wheat Crop Insurance Regulations are binding on all who seek to come within the Federal Crop Insurance Act, regardless of lack of actual knowledge of the regulations.  P. 385.67 Idaho 196, 174 P.2d 834, reversed.The Supreme Court of Idaho affirmed a judgment against the Federal Crop Insurance Corporation for loss of a wheat crop which had been reseeded on winter wheat acreage.  67 Idaho 196, 174 P.2d 834.  This Court granted certiorari.  331 U.S. 798.  Reversed, p. 386.MR. JUSTICE FRANKFURTER delivered the opinion of the Court.Key excerpts from Justice Frankfurter’s Majority opinion:“….The case no doubt presents phases of hardship.  We take for granted that, on the basis of what they were told by the Corporation’s local agent, the respondents reasonably believed that their entire crop was covered by petitioner’s insurance.  And so we assume that recovery could be had against a private insurance company.  But the Corporation is not a private insurance company.  It is too late in the day to urge that the Government is just another private litigant, for purposes of charging it with liability, whenever it takes over a business theretofore conducted by private enterprise or engages in competition with private ventures.{1}  Government is not partly public or partly private, depending upon the governmental pedigree of the type of a particular activity or the manner [332 U.S. 384] in which the Government conducts it.  The Government may carry on its operations through conventional executive agencies or through corporate forms especially created for defined ends.  See Keifer & Keifer v. Reconstruction Finance Corp., 306 U.S. 381, 390.  Whatever the form in which the Government functions, anyone entering into an arrangement with the Government takes the risk of having accurately ascertained that he who purports to act for the Government stays within the bounds of his authority.  The scope of this authority may be explicitly defined by Congress or be limited by delegated legislation, properly exercised through the rulemaking power.  And this is so even though, as here, the agent himself may have been unaware of the limitations upon his authority.  See, e.g., Utah Power & Light Co. v. United States, 243 U.S. 389, 409; United States v. Stewart, 311 U.S. 60, 70, and see generally In re Floyd Acceptances, 7 Wall. 666.If the Federal Crop Insurance Act had, by explicit language, prohibited the insurance of spring wheat which is reseeded on winter wheat acreage, the ignorance of of such a restriction, either by the respondents or the Corporation’s agent, would be immaterial, and recovery could not be had against the Corporation for loss of such reseeded wheat.  Congress could hardly define the multitudinous details appropriate for the business of crop insurance when the Government entered it.  Inevitably “the terms and conditions” upon which valid governmental insurance can be had must be defined by the agency acting for the Government.  And so, Congress has legislated in this instance, as in modern regulatory enactments it so often does, by conferring the rulemaking power upon the agency created for carrying out its policy.  See § 516(b), 52 Stat. 72, 77, 7 U.S.C. § 1516(b).  Just as everyone is charged with knowledge of the United States Statutes at Large, [332 U.S. 385] Congress has provided that the appearance of rules and regulations in the Federal Register gives legal notice of their contents.  49 Stat. 502, 44 U.S.C. § 307.Accordingly, the Wheat Crop Insurance Regulations were binding on all who sought to come within the Federal Crop Insurance Act, regardless of actual knowledge of what is in the Regulations or of the hardship resulting from innocent ignorance.  The oft-quoted observation in Rock Island, Arkansas & Louisiana R. Co. v. United States, 254 U.S. 141, 143, that “Men must turn square corners when they deal with the Government” does not reflect a callous outlook.  It merely expresses the duty of all courts to observe the conditions defined by Congress for charging the public treasury.  The “terms and conditions” defined by the Corporation, under authority of Congress, for creating liability on the part of the Government preclude recovery for the loss of the reseeded wheat no matter with what good reason the respondents thought they had obtained insurance from the Government.  Indeed, not only do the Wheat Regulations limit the liability of the Government as if they had been enacted by Congress directly, but they were, in fact, incorporated by reference in the application,{2} as specifically required by the Regulations.{3} [332 U.S. 386]….”

Banking Versus Banks

It means a bank is a financial institution that holds payments of the customers and gives back to them whenever they demand it.Banks run the economy by payment system this thing makes the banks special. They only create money in the form of claims on their own debts. Their specialness lies in their abilities to economize on the use of outside money with their on deposit liabilities. Banks are special in so far as they only can lend claims on their own debt which are accepted and used by the public as money. This power grants banks a unique role in the economy. As money creators, they are irreplaceable by no- bank intermediaries. Banking needs more technology.2Four components are used in the development of banking. Each component has its own importance no one of them can be neglected. Banks simply try to implement these steps but still there is big competition between banks. These steps of banking are interrelated to each other. We will discuss these steps or components in detail. We will check the implementation of these steps using banks and other intermediaries.The first element of banking is credit. Banks have always been suppliers of credit to worthy borrowers with the capacity to undertake and finance productive investments. The business of providing credit is made up of origination, funding and servicing. Each element of banking requires different sets of skills and qualifications. A large bank such as Westpac can add real value to the origination and servicing portions of the credit business, but not as much to funding all credit business.The origination side of the credit business firstly involves finding the customer. Getting a customer on the books requires selling skills, be the target of an existing or a new customer. Over the last decade, banks have developed these selling skills.

The US Stock Market and the New York Stock Exchange

Stocks are a form of part-ownership of a business evidenced by a stock certificate. Shares are originally sold whenever a company needs money for business development or expansion. While a small business may not need shareholders from outside the owners family, an expansion strategic decision may require that he sells shares to the public. This is done through an initial public offering. The buyers and owners of shares of stock can subsequently sell their shares in the stock exchange where the stock is normally traded. While stocks may be kept as investment, often it does not imply participation in the running of the business for one can sell his shares at any time when it has appreciated in value to earn a profit or when he needs cash.The stock exchange is the place where individuals trade stocks. In the United States the three most important places where to trade stocks are the New York Stock Excange, the American Stock Excange and the Nasdaq. One can buy or sell stocks in these exchanges through stock brokers or indirectly through mutual fund companies or company dividend reinvestment plans.Wall Street is a term one often hears to refer to a marketplace for stocks. Physically it is street, an address in New York city, but as a market it is where merchants, agents and customers of finance meet to buy and sell stocks or bonds (Little and Rhodes, 1991). Thus it is composed of all the the individual marketplaces and the total community of interests that maintains them and is regulated closely by the Securities and Exchange Commission (ibid). The name Wall Street comprises the two major exchanges and the regional stock exchanges, but it may also include the nationwide network of brokers/dealers known as the over-the-counter (OTC) market, the brokerage firms and their employees, and all investors, whether individual or institutional. Wall Street can also be divided into two major functions: the provision of a primary market and secondary market.

However, this will have no effect on Net Working Capital since both current liability and the current assets will decrease.The cash in hand will increase by $5 million. However, there will be no change in Net Working Capitalas the transaction involves only the conversion of an already existing asset from one form to another.Forecasting Payments: If a firm pays its bills with a 30-day delay, what fraction of its purchases will be paid for: in the current quarter. and in the following quarter? What if its payment delay is 60 days?Lock Boxes: Anne Teak, the financial manager of a furniture manufacturer, is considering operating a lock-box system. She forecasts that 400 payments a day will be made to lockboxes with an average payment size of $2,000. The bank’s charge for operating the lockboxes is $.40 a check. The interest rate is .015 percent per day.Use these data to compute accounts receivable turnover ratios and average collection periods for 2005 and 2006. Based on your analysis, is Hickory Company managing its receivables better or worse in 2006 than it did in 2005?The president, vice president, and sales manager of Moorer Corporation were discussing the company’s present credit policy. The sales manager suggested that potential sales were being lost to competitors because of Moorer Corporations’ tight restrictions on granting credit to consumers. He stated that if credit policies were loosened, the current year’s estimated credit sales of $3,000,000 could be increased by at least 20% next year with an increase in uncollectible accounts receivable of only $10,000 over this year’s amount of $37,500. He argued that because the company’s cost of sales is only 25% of revenues, the company would certainly come out ahead.The vice president, however, suggested that a better alternative to easier credit terms would be to accept consumer credit cards such as VISA or MASTERCARD. She argued that this alternative could increase sales by 40%. The credit card finance charges to Moorer Corporation would be 4% of the additional sales.

Decision Support System

It was traditionally aimed at managers to assist in high-level decision making. The present project focuses on the implementation of one of the DSS techniques in running a group of Hotels or rather implementing this tool in effective management.The details of various entities that change every day in the hotel have been collected. Mrs. Danver presented the parameters that need to manipulate or rather clearly needs observation and statistical analysis for taking further decisions. The data in hand is sorted and the steps laid according to DSS are followed such that data when putting in Excel sheets and their linking bar charts help to take further decisions towards the benefit of the hotel. A different category of data that is collected at Hotel Maurer is also presented. As the management issues of a Hotel are large in the number taking into consideration all the entities would make it laborious so few categories like Finance, Housekeeping, Bar, Staff, Restaurant and Old records are focused mainly.Decision Support System is a tool used to improve the process of decision making in complex systems, in particular where information is uncertain or incomplete.It can range from a system to answer simple queries that allow a subsequent decision to be made, to a system that provides detailed querying across a spectrum of related datasets. It was traditionally aimed at managers to assist in high-level decision-making (Tatnall,2002). Any given DSS can be tailored to provide features across a spectrum of users to ensure the system is accessible at the right level for different audiences and to provide only the information appropriate for confidentiality and security purposes.There are many ways in which these are implemented. Simple query tools can provide one level of support. The more complex systems employ some form of artificial intelligence. There are many approaches to these three of them.

Helping The Homeless

I have a strong feeling about this because I have grown in Thailand, where I saw a lot of homeless, which can be important to define how I saw life. The most effective means of helping individuals to find a home is to help them in the process of constructing a house to shelter them during the nights. Apart from that, you can provide food for them since there is a high chance of them going hungry. You can donate some money to those people to make it easier for them to purchase some clothes and food.Apart from the ways mentioned in this helping the homeless essay, there are other different ways of helping homeless individuals. You can also decide to donate some money to support organizations that cater to the interests of these people. Alternatively, you can visit the vulnerable population and oversee the process of constructing homes for them.But I think that donating food to the vulnerable population is a fundamental thing that you can consider to do. Providing homeless people something to eat is essential since it makes them deal with the constant issue of going days without food. These people don’t stay healthy simply because they are unable to afford nutritionally healthy means to grow both physically and mentally. So, the best way to assist homeless individuals is to help them with shelter and food. I think no one wishes to see a family starve and die.When I stayed in Thailand, we used to go to McDonald’s and other fast-food restaurants to purchase food. In the process, I used to buy extra food staff for a 12-year old child who used to sit by the roadside every day. I did this for about two years, which represents the period the kid used to beg by the roadside since they are homeless. The kid was so happy every time we helped him to get some food. In return, this helped me to feel amazed as I continued helping the less fortunate people in society. Moreover, I kept feeling happy as I was providing help to the kid. I have a belief that my siblings and parents felt for the homeless, just like how I did.I believe that anyone helping the homeless to get food to eat feels precise how I think. However, we should not be limited to helping one person. There are a lot of people or organizations that you can get involved with to help change the lives of less-advantaged people. In my opinion, you can be of much help to hungry people with any little thing you can offer. Seeing homeless people begging by the roadside is something that gets me irritated to find the ways to want to help.The hungry and homeless people are breathing the same air, just like any other humans. In that case, it is not necessary to discriminate them. These people also need to eat something, just like other people. Just like other humans, they also go hungry and thirsty. So, if you can be capable of helping the homeless, donate some money to help them afford clothes and food. This is important since most of them don’t buy new clothes.In most cases, you will continue seeing them with the same clothes for days. When I used to live in Thailand, I embraced a habit of putting some money in a donation box or gave the hungry and homeless people themselves, especially when I went to a mall to shop. I continue doing this charitable act since I felt terrible for how someone will go days without eating something. I knew that it is important to feel for the children who don’t grow in the kind of family I grew into.Although some of the hungry and homeless people have to donate their lifetime earning to someone who has enslaved them, that doesn’t mean that you can assist them. When I learned how to help such people, I discovered how happy I could be. At a tender age, I came to realize that even small amounts of money can be important to transform the life of someone in need. This is an important lesson that I want our society to learn, but most people don’t understand the importance of helping as a part of this generation.Providing some money and donating food is an important act of kindness to all the homeless people you will be helping. However, this helps you to develop your values and virtues of compassion and the spirit of giving. Apart from that, other people will treat you with respect as someone with kindness to help the less fortunate.Helping the less fortunate is essential since there are a lot of people that are suffering around the world. Most of these people don’t have a real place they can call home. Apart from that, their safety is compromised since most of them spend their nights in the streets. So, if you are willing to provide a home to the homeless, you’ll be enhancing their safety. One of the ways I helped assure the safety of the vulnerable in the community when I was eight years old, while still in Sweden while my mother was in Thailand, was to build a house for the homeless family.This act of charity can be important to enhance the safety of homeless families and individuals. I felt pity, something that others don’t, for a mother who could leave a fourteen-year-old child who was physically handicapped at home as she went to look for sustenance and medication. So, I am aspired to find ways to help vulnerable individuals to survive and be happy. I think that it is essential to help families find a home and put a roof under their heads. The act of helping individuals while I was still at a tender age can be important to help me to transform how I view life today.This is essential since it has helped the young individuals to know the ways that their life has to be a blessing to others. So, I was able to learn that greed is not essential if you want to put a smile on other individuals’ faces. To help the individuals, you can personally donate the sustenance and money to them. Alternatively, you can use an organization that houses the less-fortunate. To do this, you can donate money to help the organizations finance charitable actions.In conclusion, every person should continue playing their roles. Around the world, there are a lot of less-fortunate individuals, i.e., they lack foodstuff and shelter. So, if you are in the best position to assist them, you can do so. Provide money, clothes, and shelter for the homeless family. In general, do anything humanly possible to help them.

In the present analysis, the EPS of HSBC is far in excess than that of Barclays both for the current fiscal and the next fiscal. It is 7.68 and 8.18 respectively in the case of HSBC as against 5.02 and 5.52 for Barclays. The stocks of HSBC qualify for investment on this score than that of Barclays.The Price to Earnings (P/E) Ratio is a company Last Closing Price divided by the current year estimate of earnings per share (EPS). To consider an investment-worthy, the price to earnings should be at a lower rate. In numerical terms, the P/E ratio forBarclays is 11.37 as compared to 11.84 of HSBC.

Intergovernmental Finance and Paying a Share of the Cost Incurred by Provincial Governments for Infrastructure Improvements

The control of funds is in the central government and it determines the distributable pool of resources.This is a Type D grant. It is a shared type of grant because it comes from the national tax. It however under the discretion of the central government where the 10% incomes tax will be allocated that is why it is Type D which is an ad hoc type of shared tax.IV. Annually the national government determines the amount of aid it will provide to subnational governments. The distribution of this financial aid is based on population density, the percentage of citizens under the age of fifteen, and the average household income.This is a Type F grant. This is an ad hoc transfer since it is under the central government’s discretion where to allocate the funds. It is further classified under the formula type of ad hoc transfer since the division of funds for allocation will be based on the computation of certain objective criteria and elements, in this case, population density, household income and percentage of a citizen under 15.This is a Type K grant.

Forty percent is allocated to the local unit based on certain elements, in this case, the percentage of a motor vehicle owned by residents in a certain province.

Analysis of Back to Basics Why Countries Trade Finance and Development by McDonald B

Despite several measures taken (by the international bodies like WTO and conferences like the Doha Conference of 2001) towards a reduction in tariffs and facilitating free trade, one needs to consider the right policies which would help in bringing a balance between the advantageous and the less advantageous business groups. The article begins by addressing the very basic concepts of economics and international trade, that is, the comparative advantage theory of Ricardo and its importance to the business world. The methods applied are qualitative in nature and based upon the basic theoretical concepts considering their practicality. The author also talks about the exchange of technology and the consideration of product varieties as one of the pro-competitive forces. A country trades internationally only if it gains from trade, that is, it has produced and consumption gains. The article hence considers that while some measures encouraging trade might be good for some groups it might adversely affect others. It takes up an example of tariffs imposed on products imported from Bangladesh and those from European Union in the United States. The burden of trade is skewed towards the developing nation. The article thus considers the basic economic concepts in the light of practical events and issues and also picks up the Doha conference and the WTO where the issues of facilitating trade in the light of benefiting the cause of international trade and addressing the problems of the less advantageous business groups were addressed. According to Ricardo, trade between countries is driven by comparative advantage and not absolute advantage. This means that a country exports the commodities in which it has a relatively greater advantage (comparative advantage) and imports commodities where it has the comparatively lesser advantage.

Corporate Social Responsibility and Ethics in Northern Rock Bank

Corporate social responsibility is an adaptable approach to critically assess internal organization’s practices and the extent at which such practices may affect the external environment to withdraw or engage on the business (Michalak, Akseli, 2011:45). The approach further assesses the harms length that may emanate from unethical business practices in order to ascertain the role of societal inclusion in mentoring effective corporate, social, and public images to a company (Harrison, 2007:1).The internal managerial practices Executive remuneration is the amount paid to the topmost managers of different ranks in any organization. It is set by the board of directors who may follow certain set criteria and outlined in the organization’s salary and remuneration policy. Most of the managers’ demand for higher pay makes the parties involved in the remuneration system to have a hard time in resetting the system. However, sustained pay system may not be the best to reinforce executive performance (Idowu, Leal Filho, 2008:56). It is impossible to regulate executive salaries due to various reasons, which are in a lane manifested in a range of activities. For instance. a manager may demand a salary increment and may yet not be a good performer (Tricker, 2012:65). Others have the knowledge but lack the basic concepts of practicing what they have in their areas of responsibility. They have very little to do in the organization compared to their subordinates who are in turn required to work hard for a low salary (Visser, 2010:156). The directors of the Northern Rock legally seize the bank shares which were to be sold and help settle all the debts it owed the bank of England. The shareholders are therefore liable to sue the directors (Innes, Norris, 2005:128). This is due to the unfulfilled promise by the directors that they would compensate but they instead de-valued the shares so that the shareholders would get something very negligible. They did this by stating that they were. under new management and were unable to operate as a successful business. It is the government, which led the Northern Rock to countenance the problems (Regester, Larkin, Regester, 2008:45). They have a prima facie case for their rights having been violated by the government officials as is stipulated in the Human Rights Act of 1998, which deemed the plaintiff to compensation. The Northern Rock clients included business investment agencies, households and firms. These firms dealt with different business operations. The business investments were often in need of expenditures in the present to acquire returns in the future (Baxi, Prasad, 2005:68). Therefore, businesses need to borrow to finance their investments since the lenders pursue to earn long-term profits from capital investments (Idowu, Leal Filho, 2008:58). Eventually, they demand flexible accounts, which allow them instant admittance to their deposits (this means, they value short development deposit accounts). The persons leading to the collapsing of the Northern Rock bank include. the directors, the shareholders, the savers, the stakeholders, and the government. However, the stakeholders and the directors have greatly contributed since they led to the bank being nationalized by the British government. The British Bankers Association helped calm down the worried Northern Rock’s customers.

Beijing Olympics 2008

The effectiveness of the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games is reviewed in this paper. A qualitative research approach has been used for reviewing the various aspects of the specific event. A series of studies published in the academic literature has been reviewed in order to check whether the above sport event has been successful or not. Specific aspects of the particular event are set as priorities in this study: Marketing, Operations Quality, and Performance, Legal and Ethical issues, Finance, Human Resources, and Media. Certain articles published in the local and international press have been also employed, for providing additional information, where necessary, on the issue under examination. The main body of this study has been divided into two parts: Discussion and Findings. In the first of these parts, the Discussion part, the findings of the literature related to this study’s subject are presented, being categorized in order for the coherency of the study to be secured. These findings are then evaluated in the second part of the main body, the Findings section, in order to decide whether the management techniques used for managing the above sport event have been successful or not. The findings of the literature review are supported by graphs included in this study’s Appendix. Conclusions in regards to the issues discussed through the paper are provided in the Findings section. in this way, all conclusions are appropriately supported while any gaps, as revealed through the literature, are highlighted. Marketing, as part of the 2008 Beijing Olympic games, can be evaluated by referring to two, different, facts: the popularity of the specific event as it was in progress and the popularity of the city after the end of the particular event. The Beijing Olympic Games of 2008 can be considered as a major event for China’s public image. In fact, since the end of the Olympics, the number of tourists that have visited the region has reached impressive levels. in 2011 about 4.61 million people visited the city, a number that it is quite high (Blanchard and Fan 2012). Gibson, Qi, and Zhang (2008) tried to identify the level at which a major sport event can be used as a tool for improving the image of the hosting country. The case of the Beijing Olympics is used as an example. A survey was developed in Athens among college students during the Athens Olympic Games of 2004. The objective of the survey was to show whether the intention to travel to China could be influenced by the Olympics in Beijing. It was proved that, indeed, a relationship could exist between the hosting of a major sport event and the intention to travel to the hosting country. The above relationship is presented in the graph included in Figure 1, Appendix.

Managing Professional Development

Makes and receives calls. greets and establishes the business of each visitor. maintains office filing system. handles petty cash. prepares finance reports on a monthly basis. registers all outgoing letters. maintains schedule sheets for drivers, and co-ordinates travel requirements for staff and visitors with Senior Driver.Prepares local contracts/extension letters for employees. makes monthly leave reports. prepares FFE reports on a monthly basis. maintains Personal Confidential Files, etc. prepares office driver payments (fuel expenses, maintenance allowance, overtime, and salary payments). supervises 5 staff directly.Developing management skills throughout my job experiences has been an integral part of the overall process. My time management skills have become one of the first skills that I have practiced and maintained due to the fact that priorities are to be made on a daily basis. Because I have to deal with everyday situations with which I am required to divide my time between different commitments, from planning events and meetings to distributing information, my skills for time management have been honed. I have learned to work under constant pressure and yet still consistently meet stringent deadlines. This was also made more meaningful by the fact that I interacted with expatriates of various cultural backgrounds, honing my organizational savvy in the process. Coordinating with staff members has also allowed me to develop both planning and delegation skills because for my working experiences, there has always been the need to consistently set objectives, distribute tasks, and frequently consult with each other. Because of these needs, skills for target setting have further been practiced and retained in order for my teams to completely learn and understand what our priorities and objectives should be. From here, skills for decision making have also been developed to ensure that appropriate solutions are made and corrective actions are taken.

Public and Private Finance in Property

ncreased consumption levels, reduction in unemployment rate, increased exports, growth in corporate profits as well as increased foreign direct investments. The British government does not only depend on tax revenue to fund its budget but also other sources which include state owned organizations, privatizations, foreign direct investments, sale of assets. The British government own several corporations, which forms a commendable source of revenue to the government in form of profits. For instance, the UK government own the postal service company- Royal mail, train-operating company-East Coast, and education holding company- BPP Holdings. The British government has been involved in a number of privatizations whereby the government relieve its ownership and interest in parastatal to private investors. An example of such privatization includes that of the British rail in 1993. British government is major player in local business and this is evident through participation in sovereign wealth funds. The UK government own motorways, harbours, airport terminus and sewer lines that forms an important source of revenue to the government when members of the public use these infrastructure. The government has also in a number of occasions disposed off its assets to get additional revenue in order to fund its operations. Government Expenditure The UK government has been experiencing a number of challenges with its expenditure patters for a long period. It is quite unfortunate that the UK government’s total expenditure for its fiscal years have always surpassed its revenue (Parliament, 2012). This trend has remained like this for a considerable period. The government has been forced in most cases to borrow surplus funds from the public in order to meet its expenditure need….

Project Finance in the FertiNitro Company

Polar is a passive sponsor of FertiNitro and is not directly involved in the business of construction and operation of the fertilization plant. Polar is mainly a food and beverage company with present joint ventures in companies like Koch and Pequiven which are the major stakeholders of FertiNitro. The total revenue generated by the Polar group is the US $1.9 billion. More than 2% of the company goes to Venezuela’s non-oil GDP (Duff Phelps, 1998, p.5).Impact of the Sponsors’ contribution on the project in terms of viability as a stand-alone project financingThe strategy adopted by Polar in the investment of export projects has generated profitable returns to Venezuela. The first project to invest in Polar is FertiNitro. The indirect involvement of Polar in the project of FertiNitro has resulted in being the important mitigant to it. PDVSA gas is the subsidiary company of Polar Group which contributes to the major portion of the gas requirement of the country made available by FertiNitro. The foreign exchange over the past decades has been favorable for PDVSA which gives FertiNitro another reason to make the Polar group a part of its sponsors. The indirect participation of PDVSA in FertiNitro the foreign transfers and the risk convertibility gets minimized. PDVSA also has the leading market in urea in South America along with Pequiven which is the petrochemical wing of PDVSA. PDVSA is also responsible for offsetting the risk of the volatile market by lowering the cost of the feedstock gas supply. PDVSA is the world second largest Oil and Gas Company contributes the most to the FertiNitro as the company both directly and indirectly invests in the company. Even the internal funds of Pequiven are sponsored by PDVSA. Thus the viability of FertiNitro based on the stand-alone project financing of the Polar Group will bring about remarkable results as the company in engages in both direct and indirect financial investment for the company. Both the cost overruns and the time overruns of the company will be under check in spite of the fact that as Polar the company contributes to the 10% of sponsorship to FertiNitro and is a passive sponsor. Following aspects of the project with relevant matters Off-taker, The Polar Group has signed an offtake agreement with both Pequiven and Koch Off takers which are both joint ventures. The Koch Off taker bears the obligation of 75% of the ammonia and 43% of an area of the company that is available for sale during the year. Similarly, the rest of the obligation of the Polar Group’s off-take agreement lies with Pequiven. Certain specification of the company related to the off-taker agreement has to be abided by the mentioned companies like appointing an independent inspector regarding the approval of the off-takers who will be in charge of determining the quality of the product to be delivered. Based on the independent inspector’s assessment the rejection of the non-conforming products is made or availed at a discounted rate. At the initial level of agreement, Koch will have the rights to sell the products and delivering the same in North America while Pequiven will follow a similar act in South America, Caribbean, and Central America.

Qualitative Case Study Research

I duly accepted their proposal and I was excited and looking forward to complete the assigned research project. Additionally, I have already planned the strategy for successfully undertaking the research project. Unfortunately, an incident has erupted in the meanwhile that has resulted in creating certain obstacles for me to move away from my work and curtail the research project in between. Literally speaking, I shall not be able to continue the case study. Thus, I would like you to kindly continue the research project on my behalf. In order to assist you with the research project, I have tried to clearly state the outline for the research project. The letter will make you familiar with the plans and strategies that I have prepared for carrying out the research project. Furthermore, I believe that this plan will assist and guide you throughout the entire research project. Additionally, the proposed question that I have framed for the research study includes ‘what subjects do Chinese students choose to study in the UK and why?’ SOAS has already approved the research question and they were positively willing to fund the research project so that they could bring necessary changes in their marketing strategies in China. It will be worth mentioning to you that the primary reason behind the selection of this research question underlies with my field research that I have undertaken while I was gain invaluable knowledge in university in the United Kingdom. During that time, I spoke to a number of Chinese students about their preferences for studying particular subjects in the UK universities. The findings revealed that Chinese students were more willing to acquire knowledge about Management, Economics and Finance in the UK universities. Nonetheless, the reasons that were obtained from them were not similar rather they possessed varying reasons behind their preferences. My further analysis revealed that People’s Republic of China (PRC) is among the highest students’ sender countries to European Union (EU). The statistics postulated that the number of Chinese students coming to the shores of the EU has been in constant rise. Accordingly, during the year 2010-11, the number of Chinese students who migrated to EU countries was ascertained to be 67,325 while their numbers had increased to 78,715 during the year 2011-12 (UK Council for International Student Affairs, 2013). I was eager to identify the reasons behind, why so much of students are interested to arrive and relocate to the UK to study Management, Economics and Finance. More importantly, I believe that this research project shall duly assist in identifying the primary reasons behind the preferences of particular subjects by Chinese fellow students. Furthermore, the study shall also contribute in identifying the drawbacks of marketing strategies in China and additionally it shall assist universities in China to frame strategies that shall immensely help them to attract Chinese students from migrating to other countries particularly to the UK. Thus, the contents of the letter shall assist you to successfully carry out the research project provided that you duly follow the prepared plan. I believe that this study shall prove significantly beneficial for SOAS. Moreover, your hard work shall also be duly appreciated by SOAS and certainly by me. I firmly believe that the detailed plan articulated in this letter shall be sufficient and adequately shall assist you throughout your

MIDYEAR ASSESSMENT Management Finance

One of the behavioural issues that have been noticed within the case study is that of resistance from employees. It is a common observance within an organization to have employees refuses to work with the new system or processes. In some cases employees regard the new system as redundant or unnecessary altogether (Attwood, 1996). In such cases usually employees feel threatened by the new system and feel that it challenges their methods of working and makes them feel redundant. In the case provided it was observed that the supervisor of department D Janet was extremely unhappy after viewing the performance report. This behaviour shown by Janet shows that she felt threatened by the report and refused to accept the system altogether. In some cases employees tend to agree to the new budgeting system but ignore its implementation. Employees tend to assure executives of the organization that they would commit to the processes of the system but in reality tend to hold reservations about it, causing reluctance in the implementation of its implementation (Woldring, 2010). As seen in the case out of all the directors only one of the director was interested in its implementations whereas others were uncertain about it. This caused the directors to become uninterested in its effective implementation. Another behavioural issue that can be seen the company is confusion amongst the employees. While developing a budgeting plan it is vital to communicate with employees to investigate the factors that were involved in formation of the actual budget. Since communication between the executives of the company and the employees was not clear misunderstandings are created during the formation of performance reports (Poornima Charantimath, 2011). This in turn causes employees to disown the report claiming that information provided in the report is baseless and has little or no significance when placed under practical circumstances. Furthermore, there was no training provided to the employees prior to implementing the new financial control system. Direct implementation of the new system caused a great deal of confusion amongst employees who were taken aback on receiving their department’s performance report. Changes to be introduced in the Existing Report System In order to ensure that the current budgeting system is more easily accepted by the company’s employees it is vital that the management removes uncertainty and insecurity that the company employees have regarding it. The first and foremost step that the company could take is to initiate a training program for its employees. The main aim of the training program should be to increase the knowledge and awareness of the employees regarding budgeting and comparative analysis. The training sessions must inform employees of the exact advantages that budgeting and comparative analysis would bring about to the company. The process of training must start with the top executives of the company. Obtaining the consent and backing of the top executives would help in the implementation process (Finkelstein et al., 2008). Moreover, knowing that all the organizational executives share the same vision convincing employees at the lower level makes it a lot easier. Once the company’s executives have been briefed it is then time to convince employees working at the lower level

Analysis of Pharmaceutical Industry

The key market players of the pharmaceutical industry are the companies originating from USA, Japan, Europe, China, and Brazil. The medicines manufactured by the leading pharmaceutical companies are prevalent across the globe. The USA is regarded as the world’s largest market of pharmaceutical and is also the world leader in the Biopharmaceutical research. 80 Percent of the research and development in pharmaceuticals is conducted in the laboratories of USA (Select USA, 2013). However, the USA is largely dependent on the import of generic drugs and 40 percent of the pharmaceutical is consumed in USA (Select USA, 2013). It is believed that the present market situation of Biologic, over the counter (OTC), and generic drugs reflect the potential of the pharmaceutical market (U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2011). As per the reports of the House of Commons, the UK around 650 million prescriptions is prescribed by the general practitioners of the United Kingdom (UK) itself (House of Commons, 2005). The National Health Service which is one of the leading medical organizations of UK sells medicines worth £7 billion every year and 80 percent of these medicines are manufactured by branded companies (House of Commons, 2005). In the UK the pharmaceuticals industry is regarded to be the most profitable sector after Finance and Tourism. Majority of the pharmaceutical company’s revenue is generated from the USA because it is the world’s largest free pricing market for pharmaceuticals. Marketing Environment Analysis The marketing environment analysis will help us in identifying the factors that affect the company directly and indirectly. The macro environmental factors affect the activities of the company directly and the micro environmental factors affect the activities of the company indirectly. The micro environmental factors constitute environmental factors like suppliers, distributors, competitors etc. The macro environmental factors constitute of demographic, economic, socio-cultural, political, physical and legal factors. The PEST analysis will be instrumental in determining the external threats and opportunities faced by the pharmaceutical industry in the USA. Political Factors Department of Health The US department of health is a government body which regularly monitors the activities of the pharmaceutical companies. The main task of this government body is to scrutinize the license, clinical trials etc of the pharmaceutical companies. Economic The medicines manufactured and sold by the pharmaceutical companies are expensive because these companies incur a huge amount of research and development costs. Post-recession majority of the established pharmaceutical companies have closed down their research sites because the cost of research and development is too high and the profit earned by these companies is minuscule (The Guardian, 2013). It is observed that most of the pharmaceutical companies are incurring losses due to the current economic slowdown (Gallagher, 2012). The sales of the medicines in the USA are largely influenced by the ageing population and the increasing obesity among the youth. Although, post-recession the purchasing power of the common people has reduced the demand for the medicines .drugs has not reduced to a large extent.

Ethics and Social Responsibility

The company also owes the duty of care to every single person or region that it operates from thus bringing in the issue of corporate social responsibility. This paper aims at assessing the ethics and corporate social responsibility at Starbucks Corporation. Ethics and Social Responsibility: The Case of Starbucks Farmer Loans According to Washington (2010), Starbucks coffee processer understands the financial positions of its collaborate farmers, which at times lures the farmers into borrowing high interest loans to finance their activities. Starbucks also understand that financial shortage could make farmers opt for premature harvest of coffee that they sell at lower prices thereby cutting their profit margins (Washington, 2010). To cushion the collaborate farmers from the effects of financial depravity, Starbucks has established pioneering programs designed to provide access to credit to help farmers in managing risks and stabilize business. In 2008, Starbucks offered $12.5 million as loans to collaborate farmers. In 2009, Starbucks coffee company launched Small farmer Sustainability Initiative (SFSI) in collaboration with the TransFair USA and Fair-trade Labeling Organization International with projections to help in thriving of small scale farmers (Washington, 2010). … Starbucks relies on water for making coffee beverages and washing of containers. In that line, Starbucks coffee processors have prioritized measures to introduce new water conservation strategies. Starbucks have set strategies of sanitizing the coffee handling equipments to reduce excessive wastage of water (Washington, 2010). In 2008, Starbucks made clear their intentions to reduce water consumption in their operations. Starbucks coffee processors have set targets of reducing water consumption by 25% by the end of 2015. So far, Starbucks have made commendable achievements after having managed to reduce its rate of water consumption by 4.1% during its financial year 2008 to 2009 (Washington, 2010). Statement and codes of ethical responsibilities of Starbucks Company The operation of Starbucks coffee company recognizes and embraces diversity as an essential component o its business activities. Starbucks Company also operates under the vigils of providing ample working environment by showing abundant respect of personal dignity to all of its employees (Starbucks Coffee Company, 2007). In addition, Starbucks Company operates with the basic missions of providing high quality coffee under fair prices. Starbucks coffee company operates towards all time satisfaction of its customers’ expectations. Moreover, Starbucks missions and objectives entail positive contribution to community and environmental protection. Starbucks also recognizes the purpose of operation as basic profitability for future survival. Starbucks accountability on ethical and social responsibilities Starbucks have an established Business Ethics and Compliance program that provide guidelines that help partners in ensuring the business operates

International Trade and finance Law

In a number of ways, the mortgage industry also suffered, culminating in evictions, cancellations of mortgage programs in the pipeline and led to prolonged joblessness. The meltdown contributed immensely towards the closure of important corporations, decreases in buying power, and massive business losses. The ensuing chaos led to a significant slump in economy leading to recession, with lasting ramifications still being felt in Europe as evident in Euro Debt crisis. This paper critically analyses whether or not weak regulations resulted in the crisis. Many factors have been linked to the financial crisis, with differing priorities being attributed to the possible causes. There is consensus, though, that the crisis was the consequence of excessive investment in too risky, intricate financial programs1. Conflicts of interest being kept secret, the ineptitude of credit regulators, and the inability of the market to control the stock market are also other contributing factors linked to the crisis. It is notable that the 1999 amendment of the Glass-Steagall Act by the US Congress, successfully removed the thin line which separated investment and depository financial institutions in the country. As a result, it can be argued that credit regulatory bodies and investors did not provide accurate valuation of the risks that mortgage-related pecuniary products could precipitate on the global economy. Equally, governments failed to modify their regulatory regimes to handle the current neo-modern financial economy. Studies on the origin of the meltdown have also been based on the impact of interest rate. Nonetheless, immediately after the crisis erupted, governments responded by enacting palliative pecuniary policies to control the ripple-effect on different economic sectors. These elaborate self-preservation measures such as the US Dodd-Frank regulatory reforms (2010) point to the laxity of laws as the main cause of the crisis. Poor regulations Out-dated regulatory mechanisms arguably left the financial sector to virtually regulate itself, despite the main aim of business organizations being making profit. It was difficult to verify the intentions of the many citizens who had applied for excess credit in an effort to build their families a decent home. This presumed innocence of the investors has turned the heat on bankers who approved the indiscriminate borrowings2. Banking industry has been an operating under strict laws for a very long time now. but over time and due to the growth of the global economy, the financial services industry may have been operating under lax regulatory regimes that could not handle rapid economic growth and globalization of the economy. This paper will prove that weak regulations and poor policy decisions played an important role in in events that led to the crisis. Institutional policies left oversight authorities with little to do in terms of making effective responses to crises of this magnitude. Regulations are said to have aggravated the negative impacts of the bubble in the value of homes. The laws and policy decisions that arguably contributed toward the crisis will also be considered. If not, new regulatory mechan

Fundamental Analysis of Hewlett Packard

Acknowledging the significance of the company in its relevant field, this report aims to provide a detailed analysis of the company. This report consists of two major parts. First part of this report encompasses the qualitative information about the company, which includes objective of the company, products manufactured by the company, its target market and competitive edge. The second part incorporates the financial analysis of the company, which includes evaluation of income statement, balance sheet, cash flows and ratio analysis for the past 3 years i.e. 2011, 2010, and 2009. Based upon these analyses, recommendations will be made for investors whether or not to invest in the company. For investor relations, qualitative information is equally important as quantitative information. It allows the investors to gain insights related to the objectives and prevailing operations of the company. Investors cannot take decisions just on the basis of numeric figures. The reason is that sometimes companies manipulate their numeric figures and overstate the figures of profitability. Therefore, qualitative analysis is also studied carefully in order to provide recommendation to investors. The more a company is inclined towards expansion, the more are the chances for it to provide profits to investors. Qualitative analysis of HP has been mentioned in the subsequent sections of this paper. 2.1 Objective of the Company The primary objective of the company is to serve the technology based needs of customers. The company’s major corporate objectives include: Customer Loyalty. HP earns customer loyalty and respect by consistently providing value and the best quality Growth. HP acknowledges and grabs opportunities for growth, which builds upon their competencies and strengths. Profit. the company generates sufficient profits to create value, finance growth and achieve its corporate objectives. Market Leadership. HP leads in market place by designing and delivering innovative and useful products, solutions and services. Commitment to Employees. HP shows commitment towards its employees by rewarding and promoting them, based on their performance and by creating an environment that reflects their values. Global Citizenship. HP claims to fulfill its responsibility to communities by being intellectual, economic and social to where they do business. Leadership Capability. The Company claims to develop leaders who achieve business results, lead to win and grow and exemplify company’s value (HP CORPORATE OBJECTIVES AND SHARED VALUES). 2.2 Products Manufactured There are huge varieties

Analysis report of Shuttle Wagons project

This happened due to the fact that the safety regime was not defined properly and lacked clarification at the start of the project. Some approvals took longer than expected. the safety regulators did not fully know what the environment of the Channel Tunnel was like because of the Kings Cross Fire incidents which took place in 1987. These are the main considerations of the entire project. Analysis Report of Shuttle Wagons Project Purpose of the Report The task of constructing the shuttle wagons was given to Trans Manche Link who subcontracted other manufacturers to build the wagons. The project faced a lot of business problems and the major problem was the delay in building the shuttle due to several reasons and the approval of safety regulators (Clancy 2008). The purpose of this report is to give comprehensive analytical and evaluative business recommendations and to present solutions to the problems which the Shuttle Wagon Project has faced. In this regard, it is pertinent to address some issues first. Background of the report The Eurotunnel is the biggest infrastructure to be owned and financed privately in the world’s history. … iven to Trans Manche Link (TML) who in turn subcontracted different manufacturers to build high speed shuttle wagons which were to transport freight as well as passengers to different parts of Europe (Clancy 2008). The project was a combination of two different functions firstly it needed the finance and secondly it needed construction contractors. So naturally there were two groups who were involved in the projects, banks and constructions companies. But despite all that there were a number of equity issues that the project was facing due to the fact that the financial institutions were risking more than they originally planned, a number of things got delayed due to the UK general elections, there were no negotiations on a credit agreement and everything was turning out to be a mess due to the delays (Harris 1996). On top of that there were various shuttle design issues and as there was no concise safety regime plan which developed the shuttle wagons were brought back to be redesigned according to the safety regulations. Interest on payments was piling up due to the delays and it was getting difficult for the project to determine the profits. Plus there a number of problems gave birth to other problems for example as all the changes which were to be made systematically as the issue was with the product which was the shuttle, it was necessary to change other elements of their design as well which took time. Secondly there were complications in the design of the under car (Rosenberg 2012). The manufacturing of cross related products became complex, the fact that in order to make one element or design one element a number of elements had to also be re designed this caused problems for the technicians and the manufacturers who were already over burdened with the

Support for teaching of science practices in school

Support for teaching of science practices in schoolDecreasing populations and tax bases in rural areas reduce the fiscal resources available to the schools. One school district also faced enormous fiscal challenges when a tornado destroyed almost all buildings in the downtown area in 2003. In addition, high prices for gasoline and diesel fuel can devastate school district budgets where transporting students for long distances is the norm (DeYoung, 1991). Government- based support Currently, state finance of learning has attained erosion because of challenging economy. In response to the worsening world economy, state and learning policymakers have reacted to strict fiscal constraints by transforming a bigger share of the financial load from taxpayers to learner rather than by deep evaluation and decrease of costs and/or enhancing efficiency. As learning continues to develop and expand, several major elements of federal policies, regulations, and rules may need to be revisited in order to enable many to continue enrolling for distance education courses. Financing education is a broad and intricate issue. It is intricate in part of because of different basis of revenue, output, or products that are associated to these distinct sources of revenue. In addition, these expenditures and revenue pattern differ significantly by the kind of institution (four year college, university or two year college), means of governance (private or public), and the state. (Pearl Singh, 1999). In the private sector, the pattern of pricing, price discounting and expenditure levels vary significantly according to the wealth of the institution, demographics, and the affluence of the family of the applicant pool. In the public domain, these patterns also differ according to tuition laws, enrolment limits, and state funding levels that are determined by the government or public education governing body or board. The issue of financing education is large because capital underlies the themes of quality and efficiency. In terms of efficiency, there is need for cost effective association between revenues from taxpayers, parents and learner and products or outputs when measured in rates of graduation, student learning and enrolments (Hampel, 2010). Within the wide themes of higher finance underlies institutional and public policy questions that are creative or informed, if not tackled, by financial and economic perspectives. For instance, the familiar question regarding education finance concerns how much it can cost taxpayers and the relevant ratios of learners to administrative and professional staff at different types of institutions (Honderich, 1995). Learning is identified as the major driver of economic growth and as the main determinant of a person’s status and remuneration. Distance learning is essential in maintaining the growth of the economy in the rapidly increasing world economy. This is because it most high and well paying jobs and remuneration will depend on the level of education and in this case, a person with an advanced or higher degree is set to benefit more than a person with a college degree (Holmberg, 1995). Financing education in the twenty first century has a unique salience because of the 2008 financial crisis, which has caused serious economies to economies of countries in the world. However, in most countries, revenues remain strained. Since the current public universities and colleges

Efforts to Reduce the Budget Deficit

Indeed in line with the conventional analyses, the United States has been a clear example of how disruptive an increasing debt deficit is to the long-term economic growth. The national debt has not only suppressed the overall national savings, which, in effect, has reduced domestic investments, but has also increased the country’s borrowing abroad, as evident in the current account balances. It is undeniable that sustained national debts over the years have played a lead role in increasing interest rates, making internal borrowing for investments expensive, hence the capital from abroad to finance the federal budget for almost every government that has ever been in place. As a result of the alarming successive decreases in the national income due to the huge returns from the domestic capital stock accruing mostly to the foreigners, a trend that has now erected caps on the national productivity via a mounting unemployment, several statutory budget controls have been enacted by the congress to reduce the budget deficit, with most notable efforts beginning in the year 1985. After years of disagreements between Congress and the President [Regan, to be precise] on either tax increases or spending cuts as a way forward in halting the trend of deficit growth, members of Congress from both sides of the divide finally passed the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985 [popularly known as the Gramm-Rudman-Hollings Act (GRH)]. Passed and approved by the President as an important step towards rectifying decades of fiscal failure GRH laid down procedures of eliminating the federal budget deficit that stood at $200 billion in 1986 by the year 1991 (Stith, 1988). GRH was essentially a binding enactment, enforced independent of the legislative budget process and the executive orders, which had failed in cutting down the total government spending and/or resisting political pressure for more government programs. The celebration particularly for President Reagan who had grander ambitions of reducing the share of the national resources consumed by the federal government was, however, short-lived, as the provisions of GRH was ruled a ‘violation of the principles of the separation of powers’ in 1986 by the Supreme Court in Bowsher v. Synar. To save efforts that went into making the GRH from complete collapse, the Congress went back to the drawing board, eliminating the constitutional defects identified by the Supreme Court eventually producing an amended version of GRH that moved automatic sequestration process from the hands of Comptroller General to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) in the Office of the President (Stith, 1988). Accordingly, the deficits decreased in the subsequent years as a result of substantial cuts in spending accompanied by economic growth that ensured increased revenues. With the turbulent Bush administration in the 1990s, GRH proved insufficient in restricting the growth of the deficits. Congress, thus, reached an agreement with the regime allowing for a combination of tax increases and caps on government spendin

Monetary Policy International Finance and the Exchange Rate

The central bank maintains an interest rate target in order to reduce or decrease the rate of inflation, improving the growth rate, stabilizing the financial market, and maintain the stability that is associated with the exchange rate and interest rate (Edwards, 2000). The increase in the demand for the bank reserves results in the increase in the money supply in the economy since the extent of openness in the economy results in the increase in the exchange rate in the economy and it results in the increase in the revenue from exports and maintaining of stability in the exchange rate. The interest rate by the central bank leads to stabilizing the economy for the achievement and attainment of the ultimate goal for stabilizing the economy as a whole (Mishkin, 2007).The decrease in the reserves affects the money supply in the economy and the change in the interest rate mainly affects the consumers and the businesses in changing the aggregate demand and therefore he borrowing activity is directly related to the change in the interest rate which influences or affects the economic activity and the growth rate of the Gross domestic product (Arnold, 2008).The central bank introduces the monetary base through which it can change the money supply and influence the circulation of currency and bank reserves in the economy which is mainly represented by the monetary base which is considered as the total of bank reserves and the currency in circulation in the economy (Mankiw, 2002).From the above diagram, it can be explained that as the money supply curve moves towards the right, the rate of interest rate decreases and the number of money increases by taking into consideration that he demand curve will not shift with the increase in the money supply from Ms1 to Ms2, the interest rate moves from r1 to r2 which indicates that the increase in the money supply decreases the interest rate in the market (Abel and Ben, 2005).
