...Jones Electrical Distribution Electric Suppliers Finance Essay Introduction Jones Electrical Distribution is an Electrical company which has predicted that sales for the company will increase. However, over the years the company has experienced some difficulties in its cash flow and decided that in order to keep the company in operation, it was evident that additional financing would be needed in the form of a loan. However, the loan limit for borrowing could not have exceeded $250,000.00. This amount was the maximum limit their local bank, Metropolitan would offer to any company. It must be pointed out that from the inception of Jones Electrical, Metropolitan Bank was the only financial provider used by the company. In light of the foregoing, Jones had to seek alternative financial assistance from another bank - Southern Bank and Trust. The credit line offered Jones Electrical a loan would be in the amount of $350,000.00, $100,000.00 more than what Metropolitan would have offered. Jones Electrical needed to decide which loan will be more beneficial, less risky and the least expensive for the company. They needed to consider the proposition of receiving the loan from Southern Bank Trust as opposed to remaining with Metropolitan Bank. Another issue arising from the case is the way in which Jones Electrical did its operations. He had over 100 suppliers from which he credited inventory, and he paid his accounts within the 10-day period in order to benefit from a 2% trade......

Dow Jones

...The Effect of the 2008 Recession on the Dow-Jones Industrial Average On October 9, 2007, the Dow closed at its pre-recession all-time high of more than $14,000 per share. However, fourth quarter GDP growth was -1%, signaling the beginning of the recession. The Dow started falling slowly. After the failure of Bear Stearns in April 2008, and a negative GDP report in Q2 2008, the Dow plummeted to 11,000. Many analysts felt that this 20% decline was the market bottom. 2008 was a historic year for the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the overall Stock Market. 2008 started off with the Dow Jones breaking down through 13,000 with massive volume. There is a saying that states that whatever the Stock Market does in January is how the rest of the year would go. The saying turned out to be true in 2008. Wall Street stocks were plummeting in January and were reduced by one half throughout the year. However, on Monday, September 15, 2008, Lehman Brothers declared bankruptcy. On Wednesday, anxious bankers withdrew $144 billion from money market funds, nearly causing a collapse. In response, the Dow sank 13% in October. By November 20, 2008, it fell to 7,552.29, a new low. This was not yet the true market bottom. The Dow went up to 9,034.69 on January 2, 2009 before falling down to 6,594.44 on March 5, 2009. Between its highest and its lowest, the Dow plummeted over 50% in just 17 months. The stock market, as measured by the Dow Jones Industrial Average, has historically performed......

Edward Jones

...Page 1 of 3 Edward Jones Case : Team One In facing fluctuating markets, emerging competition, and evolving industry platforms, Edward Jones must continuously strive to maintain its strong brand status while steadily expanding its business. Its mission to build long-term relationships with clients big and small and provide excellent, comprehensive service from dedicated advisors has been the backbone of its success. The challenge Edward Jones faces is how to ensure it will increase its market share and be competitive in light of recent industry changes and uncertainties while upholding its client satisfaction. One strategic initiative presently contemplated is to reduce company costs by consolidating financial advisors in 5-10 person offices in large metro areas. While this strategy offers some benefits, we believe the opportunity costs outweigh the cost savings. Therefore Edward Jones should not proceed and consolidate existing offices in large metro areas. Currently, Edward Jones has 8,205 branches located in large metro areas. 70% of them are located in locations where there are more than 10 offices in the area, each office has one advisor and one BOA on average. If we were to consolidate these offices, we would close a total of 2462 offices and build 492 new larger offices. (See Appendix 1) We would put 5 advisors in one office while decreasing the number of BOAs to 3 per large office. From this, our expenses, including rent, utilities, and BOA salary will decrease......

Jones Model & Modified Jones Model

...Jones Model & Modified Jones Model Theory and Practice What is Earning Management? Earning management is the process that one firm’s manager presents the finical statement in his favorable way rather the real performance in a certain period. “Earnings management occurs when managers use judgment in financial reporting and in structuring transactions to alter financial reports to either mislead some stakeholders about the underlying economic performance of the company, or to influence contractual outcomes that depend on reported accounting numbers.” (Healy and Wahlen, Accounting Horizon, 1999) Earning management is generally happened within the generally accepted accounting principle (GAAP) choice, under the GAAP, firms have the flexibility to make their accounting choices and required to do estimations on their finical report. The intention of the “flexibility “is to make finical statements can by more accurately present a firm’s operating result in a certain period, companies have to estimate numbers (such as expense) based on their assumptions for the future, but the problem is that GAAP doesn’t have clear boundary to define what is a normal estimation (legal) and what is an extreme estimation (illegal). Therefore as long as the manager has logically explaining of those assumptions, then their estimation is legal. By definition, earning is the sum of operating cash flow and non-cash earning (accruals). Thus, if a manager wants to manipulate a firm’s earning,......

...n the past several years, Jones Electrical Distribution is profitable, but it is in the condition of cash shortage. With its 2007’s sales go up, Jones need borrow more money to help its rapid development. Then he got a maximum line of credit $350,000. With our analysis report, we help Jones to choose whether to take advantage of 2% trade discount, we can observe that Jones’credit line will be $318,000 without discount, not $387,000 with this 2% discount. Problems Statement Jones Electrical Distribution’s current condition is not only cash shortage but also under rapid sales grows’ effect. Why this profitable firm needs to increase its borrowing, what kinds of strategies Jones Electrical Distribution will choose, and what his estimate of the loan needs is. These are the problems we will talk about bellows. Data Analysis 1. According to the balance sheet and sources and uses statements (appendix 1), we can see that the line of credit payable increases every year, because Jones needs more and more funds to support the needs of working capital and invest to long-lived assets such as plant, property and equipment to support higher sales levels. We can see that Jones used its profits (changed in Net Worth), cash and short-term debt to support the needs of working capital and the increase of inventory (probably to support higher sales levels). The reduction in long-term debt is a use of funds because Jones is repaying a loan. The decrease of cash is a source of funds to......

Jones Electrical

...Current Position Jones Electrical Distribution (hereinafter Jones Electric) is currently facing an issue with cash flows, which will ultimately affect the overall profitability and growth potential for the company. The owner, Nelson Jones, is diligent in paying his suppliers within ten days in order to capitalize on a two percent early pay discount, but in doing so, has over-extended cash flows. Though the company has been profitable and growing over the past three years, its current lender, Metropolitan Bank, will not increase a line of credit (LOC) beyond $250,000, a LOC upon which Jones has recently fully drawn. In order to ease the tensions of depleting cash reserves, Jones is seeking a higher LOC from another lender, Southern Bank & Trust (SB&T). A higher LOC will not only cover overhead expenses and take advantage of early pay discounts, but could also be invested in the continued growth of sales, as well as, potentially opening new locations. After weighing his options, Jones is convinced that he has to take on more debt in order to keep the business moving forward. Thus far, Jones is only contemplating one financing option, a higher LOC from SB&T. The terms of LOC are not favorable when weighed against Jones’s objective to grow the business. SB&T will limit the drawable amount, control investments in fixed assets, and control Jones’s withdrawal of funds from the business. As such, Jones needs to reconsider SB&T’s offer and consider other financing......

Edward Jones

...a. What explains the success of Edward Jones over so many years? From the time of its inception, Edward Jones has been focused about the customer segments, the markets and the products segments it wants to operate in. This focus has allowed Edward Jones to concentrate efforts and resources towards these segments and maximize the penetration within and profitability from this segment. The key factors that have helped build this strategy and the resulting success of Edward Jones are: 1. Geographic Focus with operating in markets with no competition: Edward Jones started its operations by opening up branches in rural areas. In its expansion stage too, it continued to open branches in non-urban locations. In most of these locations, Edward Jones was competing only with the local bank branch, which at the time was not offering brokerage services or was offering only limited options in this segment. This resulted in Edward Jones being able to thrive with almost no competition which added to its success. Also, by opening offices in areas such as shopping malls, Edward Jones was operating in high-traffic centrally located parts of the town and hence getting incremental walk-ins resulting in more business. 2. Catering to all Customer Segments, esp. the smaller customers: Edward Jones never wavered from its product strategy or tried to differentiate its service based on the amount of investment made by a client. It was also very clear about the end-customer being its......

The company is not a smaller company that had a net income of around $30,000 with net sales of around $2.4 million. Although the company is not to large they have continued to have growth year after year. Recent forecasts show sales might begin to slow down.
