Capital Budgeting http://www.financialmodelingguide.com/valuation-concepts/capital-budgeting-irr-npv/ Capital budgeting is one of the most important areas of financial management. There are several techniques commonly used to evaluate capital budgeting projects namely the payback period, accounting rate of return, present value and internal rate of return and profitability index. Recent studies highlight that financial managers worldwide favor methods such as the internal rate of return (IRR) or non-discounted payback period (PP) models over the net present value (NPV), which is the model academics consider superior. The term capital budgeting refers to long term planning for proposal capital outlay and their financing. It includes rising long-term funds and their utilization. It may be defined as firms, formal process of acquisition and investment of capital. Capital Budgeting may also be defined as the decision making process which the firm evaluates the purchase of major fixed assets. It involves firm’s decision to invest its current funds for addition, disposition, modification and replacement of fixed assets. In particular this assignment focused on Bauer Industries. Bauer Industries is an automobile manufacturer. Management is evaluating a proposal to build a plant that will manufacture lightweight trucks.

Fina 301: Sherwin-Williams Example

...FINA 301: SHERWIN-WILLIAMS EXAMPLE Supporting Information for Financial Analysis Exercise III Part A: This first part of the exercise asks you to select one of four company stocks and apply the constant- growth model in an attempt to value a share of that stock. Here is the equation for the model, Equation 8-6 in the second edition of the textbook: P0 = = , where P0 = current price of the stock D0 = dividend per share at the end of the last period D1 = dividend per share at the end of period 1 i = discount rate g = constant growth rate We need to find values for the variables in this equation in order to solve for P0. The discount rate is given to us at 12.5%. So we need to find values for D0, g, and D1. The last variable equals [D0,∙ (1 + g)], so we are left to find only D0 and g. D0 is a historical number. We will look for this number for Sherwin Williams at Yahoo! Finance using data accessed in 2009 for this example: a.

...MGMT 360-01 Bonus I think Louisiana should legalize the use of marijuana, but only if it is controlled. When I say controlled I mean that the drug should only be sold by stores that have documentation that marijuana can be sold there. Also to keep the drug controlled it can only be smoked in your home. If the state of Louisiana was to legalize the use of the drug the state would make money because the drug will be taxed. The money could help save programs, the school system, and universities in the state that have either been cut completely or financially. Lastly, arrest for marijuana will slightly decrease and the police can focus on more important things such as getting heroin, crack, and other drugs off the street. These are some of the possible pros to the decision. Children under the age of five will be exposed to the drug. Children will probably associate smoking marijuana as being cool, because of seeing it done around you. Even though the drug is controlled, people are creative in getting something they want. Teens will get their parents, older friends, and even strangers to buy the marijuana for them. Adults will either come in buy or if they don’t have the money they can rob the store. Also, if the marijuana is too expensive in the store, people will go back to growing their own supply and maybe even selling it. These are some of the possible cons to the decision. Every decision has pros and cons, but it takes the people in the community to direct the......

Directions: Please read the following scenario, then answer the questions that follow.                                                                                                                                          “Managing a Ski Shop” Your best friend’s sister and brother-in-law run the local ski shop near campus in your college town, but they have recently bought another type of business in another town. They want you and your friend to take over managing the ski shop. If you run it successfully, you and your friend will gradually be given substantial equity in the shop and eventually would own the whole business. So far, the shop has been only marginally profitable. Although the shop carries ski equipment and ski clothing, it has habitually run out of both during the peak skiing season. Extra merchandise hastily ordered to meet the demand has often arrived so late that it could not be sold until the next season, if at all. In addition, the shop does very little business from March through August. Due to a dispute over the size and prominence of the outside sign displaying the shop’s......

...Latoya Harrell Cathy Whitfield Business Ethics-MGMT 368 13th January 2015 Kohlberg’s Scale On Kohlberg’s scale, I consider myself to be falling under the fifth stage of the third categorization. The third level which is post conventional morality has two stages, which is stage five which is social contracts and Individual rights and stage six: universal principles. I consider myself to be in stage five. This stage is concerned with a person’s ability to embrace and recognize the reason why differences exist in people’s values, beliefs, opinions and other inclinations of others. The level also maintains and recognizes the importance of the rule of law in maintaining order in the society (Ashford & Lortie, 2010). Kohlberg came up with a scale which he used to explain the learning of morality and the subsequent development of morality among the children and even adults. In an attempt to explain the process of morality development, he established the scale which is mainly based on learning of what is moral and what is not moral, with no regard to the actions of people. Kohlberg’s scale is divided into three main levels and each of the three levels has two stages of the process. The first level is the pre-conventional level. This level has stage one and stage two. Stage one is on obedience and punishment. Under this stage, both adults and children perceive rules as absolute and rigid. Total obedience of the rules is not a choice since it means avoidance of punishment. Stage......

...| Management Practice: Critical Analysis and Review MGMT.8001 SUBMITTED BY NILAM SANGROULA (NIEL) SUBMITTED TO Andriy Kovalenko Date of Submission: 13 April 2011 1. Introduction The article “Are vulnerable workers really protected in New Zealand?” is written by two authors namely, Danae Anderson, researcher at Work research Institute, Auckland University of Technology, NZ and Rupert Tipples, Associate Professor of Employment Relations in Faculty of Commerce at Lincoln University, Christchurch, New Zealand and is published in New Zealand Journal of Employment Relations, 39 (1): 52-67. This article is concentrated on exploring the working condition of international migrant workers and pacific workers in primary sectors and are categorised as vulnerable migrants using Sargeant and Tucker’s 2009 framework. The writers have claimed that though protective measures have been adopted to defend the vulnerability of the workers, the result is still speech making only. The article has clearly identified the research topic and used secondary sources of the information to address the research questions. The article has been successful in raising the concerns of vulnerable workers in primary sectors such as exploitation at work, underpayment, employment dependency, visa conditions, lacking of formal written contracts for employment likewise, the article has been able to pull the attention of the concerned authorities to work and rethink to promulgate the......

...how the HR is structured in the subsidiaries of the organization. This, in turn will influence how well the organization is run. The performance may differ based on how the HR is structured, but that does not prove that a single way of structuring is superior to another. Hence, the location of the decisions made on the structure of the HR in the subsidiary may affect innovation output but not the performance. This is stated by (Ferner et al 2011,P-484) as ‘On the other hand, the degree of involvement by corporate headquarters (HQ), or other higher levels, in subsidiary practices is a primary mechanism for exogenously driven innovation within the host system.” MGMT 1001 The introduction of new technology will also effect how the organization is structured. However, the magnitude of the change in technology is not the sole determinant resulting in the changes in the structure of the organization. As, (Doherty, Champion and Wand ) states “The competing hypothesis is that management teams will only be prepared to make any significant changes to their organizations’ structure, to better align it with ERP, once the ERP implementation has proved its worth, and started to deliver important benefits.’ Hence, the success of the change in the technology has a big role to play in deciding whether any imminent changes in the design of the organization need to take place.

Kentucky Fried Chicken is one of the leading U.S. fast food chains currently in China. There are several factors that have contributed to KFC’s rapid expansion and success in China. The story of KFC in China is one of great success on an economic level, as well as a great example of international business. There are many factors behind KFC’s success in China which include, five competitive advantages: infusing a Western brand with Chinese characteristics, expanding rapidly, developing a logistics network, training employees in service, and focusing on ownership rather than franchising. KFC is part of the Yum! Brand, which also owns Pizza Hut and Taco Bell. KFC China’s success in the international market has all been due to its five competitive advantages. The first of these advantages is infusing a Western brand with Chinese characteristics. KFC China makes sure that even though it is a US chain and restaurant it has worked hard to assimilate into the Chinese culture. They have done this by offering a variety of menu choices that cater to the local cuisine. They have also expanded their kitchens and their workforce to be able to produce and accommodate for the additional menu options. Extended families are a big part of Chinese culture; KFC China has acknowledged this by......
