He has been performing this duty for several years. This year, Jason was very busy due to a shortage of personnel at the company, so he decided to just estimate the amount of ending inventory instead of doing an accurate count. He reasoned that he could come very close to the true amount because of his past experience working with inventory. Besides, he was sure that the sophisticated computer program that Lexmar had just invested in kept an accurate record of inventory on hand.

FARNSWORTH COMPANY ABP FINAL REPORT Laureano Rodrigo Koch December 2011 Executive Summary As a board member representing the third shareholder family of Farnsworth, I am in disagreement with Mr. Thursday’s proposal to invest US$3’200,000 into new Decorative and Industrial presses, floor space and Working Capital. Understanding our need to continue growing in the laminated plastic product manufacturing industry, my recommendation and counterproposal is to invest US$800,000 in the purchase of the two Industrial laminate presses (including the corresponding expansion of floor space and working capital) and another US$1’600,000 into additional working capital to maintain our operations running due to critical cash shortage. This recommendation includes fully dedicating our resources into the industrial Laminated industry. This counterproposal will be financed through: i) Selling our Decorative Laminated assets in the short term; and ii) increased sales and working capital optimization in the medium term. Farnsworth Re-engineering In order to understand this recommendation we need to address two important decision criteria: a) Market potential; b) Profitability and Working Capital assessment.
