Question

Help needed

Suppose I am the CEO of a 100%-equity-financed company, Boudro-o-Dirt, Inc., that

re-builds levees. I am considering taking on a project in New Orleans that will require a large initial investment on my firm’s part. Boudro-o-Dirt currently has 50,000 shares of equity outstanding and a $30 share price. The firm’s cost of equity is 12.5% and the marginal tax rate is 34%.

Having worked for a firm that went bankrupt several years ago, mainly due to a heavy debt-load, I have a very negative attitude towards the use of debt in Lots’ capital structure. However, I also know that I could start borrowing at 8%.

I have heard that you just read a couple of chapters about capitalizing with debt, so I decide to hire you to advise me about financing all or part of this project with debt. What should I be aware of and concerned about as I make my decision about 1) the pros and cons of using debt or not, and 2) how much debt to use?

Question

You are executing your plan for a new product development project. Your project is running smoothly. You

are meeting the customer’s expectations, and delivering on time and on budget. During a status meeting with Senior Management about the status of your project, they are very happy about your progress and ask you to successfully end your project one month earlier than planned in order to beat the competition to market. What is the best response:

a) You want to be sure you keep the Senior Managers happy with you so that they consider you for the next promotion opportunity. You tell them you will work with the team to get a new schedule in place to meet the earlier date.

b) You tell Senior Management that this is a change to the project and needs to be documented in a Change Order, analyzed for the impact to the budget and scope, and reviewed by the Change Control Board before you can confirm if it is feasible and any additional budget required.

c) You tell the Senior Management that you understand the importance of this request and that you need a couple of days to research the schedule and plan to determine the feasibility of the request and will get back with them.

d) You realize that getting to market faster than the competitor is critically important to the business, so you agree to deliver the project earlier and will work with the team to figure out a new schedule to get it done.

Dear Tutors,

Century Roofing is thinking of

opening a new warehouse, and the key data are shown below. The company owns the building that would be used, and it could sell it for $100,000 after taxes if it decides not to open the new warehouse. The equipment for the project would be depreciated by the straight-line method over the project’s 3-year life, after which it would be worth nothing and thus it would have a zero salvage value. No new working capital would be required, and revenues and other operating costs would be constant over the project’s 3-year life. What is the project’s NPV? (Hint: Cash flows are constant in Years 1-3.)

Project cost of capital (r)

Question

One important consideration is that the future changes in interest rates could make expected future cash flows

disappear, especially if the risk is non-diversified. The fact that the nondiversifiable risk has a wide range is also a key factor in the question.

Non-diversifiable risk essentially has two parts; operating risk and financial risk. The operating risk is based on the firm’s assets while the financial risk is primarily based on the firm’s capital structure (how the firm is financed).

In what ways do operating risk and financial risk impact the required return (cost of capital) of a potential project?

b) Since the resources will be temporary on the project, it is important that they have the proper skills to get the work done

Problem 1:Johnson Jets is considering two mutually exclusive projects. Project A has an up-front cost of $124,000

(CF0 = -124,000), and produces positive after-tax cash inflows of $30,000 a year at the end of each of the next six years. Project B has an up-front cost of $59,000(CF0 = -59,000) and produces after-tax cash inflows of $20,000 a year at the end of the next four years. Assuming the cost of capital is 10.5%,

1. Compute the equivalent annual annuity of project A in box 1. Round the EAA to a whole dollar without the dollar sign or comma, e.g., 3452 (non-negative number)

2. Compute the equivalent annual annity of project B in box 2. The same format as box 1.

Problem 2:You are evaluating the proposed acquisition of a new computer. The computer’s price is $ 7 0,000, and it falls into the MACRS 3-year class. Purchase of the computer would require an increase in net operating working capital of $2,000. The computer would increase the firm’s before-tax revenues by $ 28 ,000 per year but would also increase operating costs by $ 18 ,000 per year. The computer is expected to be used for 3 years and then be sold for $25,000. The firm’s marginal tax rate is 40 percent, and the project’s cost of capital is 14 percent.

I am a little confused on how do you determine/answer the following:

1) Profit Oriented

a) Explain a long term and short term goals for making a profit. This should be a percentage of sales, or capital investment.

2) Sale- Oriented

a) identify and specify the level of unit sales, dollars, or share of the market you are trying to achieve with setting your product’s price.

3) Status Quo

a) meeting competition on price (this strategy is sometimes employed when the overall market is not growing, and potentially commoditized) OR if you are sing a non-price

competition pricing strategy.

Question

A manufacturer of mountain bicycles designed an auto- mated system for welding bike frames. For 3 years, the

system worked nicely, handling about 1000 frames per shift. Production was scheduled for two shifts per day. The system was designed to weld the frame and then to check the quality of each weld. The welded frames were then transported to another plant for assembly.

Recently, a few of the frames had failed. Careful testing showed that a foreign substance in the weld- ing rod purchased from an outside vendor possibly contributed to the failure. When checked, however, the rods conformed to the specifications given to the Purchasing Department and guaranteed by the ven- dor. The Chief Engineer ordered the Production Department’s Project Leader, Alison Passette, to cre- ate a project immediately to find out precisely what was causing the failures and to find a way to solve theproblem. This project was to take priority over all other projects in the department.

Alison was familiar with the Chief Engineer’s ten- dency to overreact to any glitches in the production process, so she decided to determine the impact of the proposed project on all the other projects in the depart- ment. She also discussed the problem with Ken Kelsey, one of her welding experts, who felt sure he could solve the welding problems by determining what foreign sub- stance, if any, caused the problem. He could then set up a system to detect the presence of the substance and reweld the affected frames. Of course, he added, they would also have to change their specifications for the welding rod to eliminate the chemical responsible for the failures.

Question

Sam is the project manager on a fundraising project for a charity. The purpose of the project is to

contact local councils and to address the council sessions with a request to place pamphlets across the council area to increase the awareness of the fundraising campaign.

Sam has three team members allocated to this project: Mark who has just completed Year 12 at a local school, Cindy who started as junior secretary at the local council and Joan who is a very reserved older woman who volunteered her services to the project.

You are swamped with work and ask Cindy to allocate the project tasks which you drew up. One of the tasks was to attend the council session meetings and state the request. Mark volunteered to do this task. After he attended the first meeting you got a phone call from the mayor complaining about the meeting and wanting to have nothing to do with the fundraising event.

    Suppose the Luka Lu resorts company has both debt and equity trading in markets The firm’s current market value

    Question

    Suppose the Luka Lu resorts company has both debt and equity trading in markets. The firm’s current market value

    of equity is $14,010,000 and the market value of its debt is $11,704,545. Assume the tax rate is 30%.

    The firm has twelve thousand bonds outstanding which mature 1 year from now. Each bond has a face value of $1000 and an annual coupon. The coupon rate is 3%. A coupon payment has just been paid.

    You may assume the risk-free rate of return is 2% and the expected return of the market portfolio is 6%. The firm has an equity beta of 1.534.

    The company is currently facing an investment opportunity with risk equivalent to the company’s current operations. The project has an initial cash outflow of $1,000,000, and the project is expected to have perpetual cash inflows after the initial date such that the payback period of the project is 19 years.

    Ignore depreciation, and assume that the current capital structure will remain constant. Compute the NPV of the project, and decide whether the company should proceed with this project.

    Question

    Final Project: UN Environmental Issues

    This final project has three separate

    parts:

    • Outline 20 points
    • Slide Presentation 300 points
    • Country Comparison 60 points

    In this project, you’ll thoroughly research one UN member country to gain a better understanding of the environmental issues it faces and to identify the most pressing issues of the day. Then you’ll compare and contrast your country with another UN member country in order to see how the international community comes together to tackle complex global environmental issues.

    You’ve already chosen a country to focus on. Now, take a look at the project requirements. When you’ve finished reviewing the requirements, skim through the sample slide presentation. This presentation is in progress meaning there are some things the student hasn’t completed. You’ll see some notes to this affect in the notes section. Also, the student will need to compile a references page at the end to attribute some of the work.

    UN Environmental Issues Project (India)Graded AssignmentFinal Project: UN Environmental IssuesRequirements

    Format: Your final product will convey this information in the form of a slide show, prepared as if you will orally present it. You probably won’t be able to present it orally, but it should be prepared as if it will be given as an oral presentation. This means that the slides should be optimal for a presentation (i.e. bullet points, images, and appropriate titles NOT full sentences or paragraphs on a slide) and the NOTES section below should contain the information you, as the presenter, would be planning to present orally. Your slides should summarize and support the information in the NOTES section, not substitute for it. If the slide show program you are using does not have a notes section, include an additional document with the notes for each slide written out.

    Content: In this project you will do research on seven major topic areas in the UN member country you’ve chosen. If appropriate you may include additional information to support or elaborate on your answers. In general, you can expect to prepare roughly 2‐3 slides per topic area in your presentation plus any introductory and concluding slides.

    Topic Area 1: Earth Systems and Resources

    1. What are the major natural resources and services within your country?

    2. What are the major benefits (economic, ecological, or societal) of these natural resources?

    Topic Area 2: The Living World

    3. What are the major types of biomes present in your country? What types of biodiversity are supported by these biomes?

    4. Identify a few major endangered species in your country and discuss what if any, solutions are being employed to endangered species.

    5. Identify one major invasive species in your country. Describe why it is of concern and what, if any, solutions are being employed to deal with it.

    Topic Area 3: Population

    6. How big is the population in your country and what is its rate of growth? Are there any problems with its rate of growth? If so, what is being done to deal with these problems?

    7. Find an age structure diagram for your country or find data describing what age group makes up the majority of the population. Describe the implications of this age structure for the future of your country.

    Topic Area 4: Land and Water Use

    8. What are the major threats to terrestrial ecosystems in your country? Is it agricuural practices, climate change, forestry, mining…?

    9. Are there any major water issues in your country (drought, flooding, sea level rise, dams, etc.)? What’s causing these problems? What is being done to deal with these problems?

    Topic Area 5: Energy Resources and Consumption

    10. What are the major sources of energy used in your country?

    11. What is the ecological footprint of your country? What is the largest contributing factor to the country’s footprint?

    Topic Area 6: Pollution

    12. What are the major sources of pollution in your country?

    13. .How is solid and hazardous waste dea with in your country?

    Topic Area 7: Global Change

    14. How is your country dealing with or preparing to deal with climate change?

    15. What are the major laws and/or economic policies in your country that promote sustainability?

    Additionally you should include:

    · A map of your country and/or description of where it is located in the world. This should be included on one of the first few slides in your presentation

    · A final slide that identifies the 1‐2 most pressing environmental issues in your country. These are the issues that your country would desire UN assistance with.

    · Sources: You must cite the sources of your information and images in this presentation. Please do this in the NOTES section of the slides or on a separate document if you are using a program that does not contain a NOTES section. Also, include a works cited slide at the end of your presentation.

    Country Comparison

    One of the biggest challenges for the UN is facilitating agreements among its 192 member countries. However, these agreements are crucial to addressing global environmental problems. One of the ways that UN countries progress towards global agreements is by finding other countries with similar problems or ideas for solutions to form a coalition with. These coalitions then negotiate with other coalitions in order to move towards agreements.

    Ahough you don’t have the luxury of learning about every UN member country in order to identify countries with which your country can form an alliance, you have been able to learn about one country, India. Your country and India are UN member countries that need to work together to solve both of your problems. Are there any commonalities that might enable the two countries to collaborate on solution or advocate for the involvement of other UN country coalitions? By answering these questions, you’ll move towards making that determination just as would as a UN representative for your country.

    1. What common resources or ecosystem types do your country and India share?

    Answer:

    You are the project manager of a project with the aim of providing training on new fire alarms to various aged

    Question

    You are the project manager of a project with the aim of providing training on new fire alarms to various aged

    care facilities associated with your organisation. You have two trainers on your project team and have access to fire alarm specialists. One trainer (trainer1) was appointed by the organisation a number of years ago and has conducted training for the staff on their accounting package and uses PowerPoint presentations and in prearranged sessions.

    The other trainer (trainer2) is a secretary but their position was made redundant so the organisation asked for assistance with this project to keep them on for a while longer. After briefing the trainers on the project requirements (train all the staff at 20 aged care facilities as well as the deadline which is one month), you continue with another project which you are also responsible for.

    You assume that the trainers have sufficient knowledge and do not need to be monitored. You do not bother scheduling any meetings. You receive a phone call from one of the facilities asking if there are two different lots of training as one of their staff was trained by trainer2 and moved facilities and received training from trainer1 but the training content was very different. You phone the trainers to clarify this—it is now two days before due date.

    During the conversation you realise that trainer1 is not very good with organisational skills and has only managed to get around to one facility and has not been able to train all the staff at this facility. The trainer’s reasons were that the facility would not provide the staff with sufficient time to be trained and was very strict in the dates and times that trainer1 could come in, which meant that there were only a few hours a day in which trainer1 was able to train the staff.

    Trainer1 has not even contacted the other facilities as they wanted to complete them sequentially. Trainer1 has produced elaborate PowerPoint presentations and needed a whole day to train the staff in the workings of the new fire alarms. Trainer1 also requested small groups of people so that everyone can have a good look at the alarm and the interaction will be better.

    Trainer2 had a similar disappointing story. Trainer2 lined up all 10 facilities during the first week but realised that they were unable to complete the training in the time allocated, so they only managed to get through half of the supplied material. Unfortunately they did not correct their activities but only attempted to reschedule the sessions. The facilities were not so accommodating due to the staff feeling that their time has been wasted. Trainer2 was frustrated as the facilities were now deferring their appointments and they still had only half trained people.

    Question

    The decision to cancel a project that has little or no chance of meeting its envisioned benefits or meeting its

    objectives can be a difficu and complex decision. Many people are afraid to face the truth when it comes to a failed project. According to Bart Perkins, euthanizing these projects is important to the heah of the organiza¬ tion. However, before png the plug, it’s important to understand and plan for a number of important issues. For example, large projects can have political ramifica¬ tions, especially if powerful stakeholders have a vested interest in the project.

    This can lead to finger pointing and looking for someone to blame for the project’s fail¬ ure. Moreover, a cancelled project can be expensive if cancelling a project includes severance packages, con¬ tractual agreements (i.e., early termination penaies), litigation, writing off sunk costs, or missed business opportunities. Failed projects can also impact relation¬ ships. This may include damaged working relationships with suppliers who may refuse to work with your orga¬ nization in the future. Lastly, killing a project can also affect the project team. Project team members’ morale may suffer if they have an emotional attachment to the project’s failure. Disillusioned employees may become unproductive or those with highly marketable skills may leave, often making it difficu to attract or retain other valuable project team members.

    What criteria should be used to cancel a project?

    2, Who should make the decision to kill a project?

    3. How can an organization ensure that a doomed project is euthanized as early as possible?

    4. As a project manager of a doomed project, what would be your top three priorities for planning the cancellation of the project?

    Question

    Looking for someone to complete a Biology lab project: (APA Format)

    Listed below are the details or the

    project.

    You are to do an actual research project (NOT just a paper) where you try to answer a question by conducting substantive controlled, well-thought-out experiments. Be sure to also post your summary by the deadline. See examples below and be sure to review the attached grading rubric carefully to see what the standards for the assignment will be!BI114 LAB PROJECT 1

    Your first project assignment is to use the steps in the scientific method to form a hypothesis concerning a testable observation, then plan and conduct an experiment or data collection to test your hypothesis and draw conclusions.

    1) Make an observation about something that you are not sure what the answer Is:

    Here are some examples from previous student groups:

    o Tall people seem to wear larger shoes than short ones.

    o People with light-colored eyes are said to have weaker vision.

    o Everyone knows people driving red sports cars are stopped more often by the police for speeding.

    You get the picture, right? These are things you can actually go out and collect data on, by examining records, taking surveys or even better, by your own direct observation!

    2) Propose a testable, FALSIFIABLE hypothesis which may explain your observation, using your best critical thinking skills.

    FOR EXAMPLE: People’s height correlates well with shoe size is a testable and falsifiable hypothesis.

    3) Plan an experiment/data collection procedure that allows you to test your hypothesis:

    Consider things like bias, the need for blinding, random sampling, and or a control group. For example, you have to compare the blue-eyed people to those with other colors! The more thought you put into controlling the variables the better and more meaningful (and believable) your data will be to others.

    4) Execute the experiment or data collection as planned and report your data. Statistical analysis is not required but remember its importance in the real world! Charts and graphs are highly desirable ..they make your resus much more visually appealing and easier to interpret.

    5 ) Examine your data critically, draw conclusions, state whether your initial hypothesis was supported, and then critically assess where you could improve your design and/or modify your hypothesis.

    Once you have done all this, write a 250 word maximum summary (in science we call this an Abstract) of your ENTIRE project from start to finish. This is what you will post for your classmates in the discussion topic for that purpose. You may also attach your full report to that post if you wish!

    Submit your project report either as a .doc, ,docx, or .rtf file attachment OR copy-paste your report to the submission box if you have any problem attaching files (it happens!)

    Your complete 250 word or less summary MUST also be posted on the Discussion Board in the appropriate thread by the project deadline.

    Here are some great links to help you along the way!

    Topic Selection Wizard

    Hypothesis and variable control

    Experimental Procedure

    Drawing conclusions

    Here is the approved format for any scientific report or paper:

    You should follow these guidelines EXACTLY in your report (there is also an example posted):

    Name Date

    Title of Project

    Abstract (Your 250-word maximum one-paragraph summary of everything you did, your resus and conclusions)

    I. Statement of problem: Describe your observation or problem that raises a question you want to answer with experimentation.

    For Example… I can never get rid of a funky smell in my dark T shirts…

    II. Statement of working hypothesis:

    This is a more formal statement of what you think is going on and plan to test in scientific terms.

    For Example… My hypothesis is that some product or combination of products X, Y, or Z will remove the smell without the use of bleach and hot water.

    III. Experimental design and methods:

    This is where you describe in as exact terms as possible what you did to address the hypothesis/answer the question.

    For example…How many shirts, what colors, control shirts (untreated dark and maybe bleached white as comparisons for the treated, how many times repeated, water temp, wash cycle, a scale to rate the smell, how many smell tester’s opinions did you get…you should get the idea, right? This should be detailed enough for anyone to understand and be able to duplicate exactly what you did!

    IV. Resus: What worked, or what didn’t. Data, charts, graphs, etc. go here. Pictures may be included too (before and after for example). Be sure to title them appropriately and include a descriptive caption.

    V. Conclusions/future directions:

    What can you say from your resus? Be careful not to over-interpret! Explain anything that didn’t work as you expected, and discuss what you would logically want to do next.

    For Example… What is true for black shirts may not be true for gray or green…you can hypothesize about them here but NOT claim anything if all you did was black ones. Also, if this leads you to want to test other cleaning products or other shirt colors, or you think more needs to be done in cleaning product development by companies …This is where you can speculate a little!

    VI. References are highly desirable (any outside resources you used).

    Hope this is clear for you all: PLEASE ask questions! Also, early drafts e-mailed to me can get feedback with no penay if submitted at least 48 hours PRIOR to the due date!
