2) The sales budget calculates how much the company will spend to produce the required number of units. The president should do further consideration in terms of capital and labor costs.

A shareholders role is to invest money into the business to ensure that it is running efficiently and the way it should be running. They are interested in a good return in investment and how much profit the business makes. They mainly care about how much profit that is made by the organisation/business.

They influence and impact the business because the business may need money for it to keep running.
The next stage is Depression, this is where there is a lengthy period of declining Gross Domestic Product (GDP) – this is where there is little to no customer spending (there is some increase in the rise of employment). The last stage is Recovery, this is where the business starts to get better; the customers increase their spending, the business starts to feel more confident in their products and profits & unemployment is still continuing. b) Describe what influence the recession stage would have on your chosen business. If Tesco go into the recession stage of the business cycle that would influence them to cut back on hiring new employees when their revenues and profits start to go down, and also the business might chose to stop buying new equipment and stop new
However during bad times there was an access of inventory which led to problems. Another issue in the auto industry is the interest rates as high interest rates led to a decrease in consumer demand for vehicles due to higher monthly payments. Eaton’s strategy to counteract a downturn was to set aside built up cash balance of $7.6 Billion or $21.13 per share as a cushion for the next downturn. Eaton’s move had critics but results showed that Chrysler’s pension was fully funded for the first time in almost 40 years and their credit rating was also upgraded to single A by major credit agencies. Without the implementation of Eaton’s strategy Chrysler’s credit rating would be poor.
CFO is larger than net income each year due to the noncash charges of depreciation and amortization. In 2008, net income is negative, but CFO is still positive as $1,879 million due to the one time goodwill impairment charges. Inventory has decreased from 2006 to 2008, after its acquisition of May in 2005. Receivables also decreased each year, which maybe a sign that the company’s receivable quality has improved. Macy’s decreased its purchase of inventory and property and equipment and decrease disposition of property and equipment year by year.
Financial Analysis- Task 5 A. 1. Some key points of the company’s financial picture that could impact the bank officer’s decision are as follows: while there is an increase in gross profits from year 12 to 13, there is a decrease from year 13 to 14, also while the payroll and executive compensations steadily increases from year 12 to 14, advertising basically decreases, and services and utilities continue to increase as well as expenses in general. The operating income also has a major decrease from year 12 to 14, which is not good for the company as it indicates what is available to the company before a few other items need to be paid, such as preferred stock dividends and income taxes, which needs to be increasing for the company, not
A cash flow problem is when there is an insufficient amount of money to meet the end of month/year bills. A potential problem maybe overdraft, this is when more money is taken out of a bank account than is in it, when this happens it becomes overdrawn. The business owners, Sharma and Ryan need to think of the problems that they may face, using the cash flow forecast we are able to see that they have a stable net cash flow all throughout the year although they have not thought about the problems that they may face, by buying the capital equipment in full (£105,000) it shows that they have not thought much into there options, they could of spread the costs of the capital across 12 months so that that the monthly costs will be £8750.00, by doing this it will prepare the business for future problems if
over the 3-year period from 2003 to 2005. Total assets dropped $1 million, or 3%, but remain near $35 million. The most notable asset change is the $500,000, or 8%, decrease in accounts receivable. However, cash did increase $200,000 which gives the company the opportunity for business investment in the coming fiscal year (“University of Phoenix,” 2006). A positive trend shows that total liabilities have dropped $1.7 million, which is accounted for by a $2 million, or 42%, decrease in long-term debt.
Which Wall Street did not have in place or this would have never happen. Their virtues are money, how much they can get no matter what it costs others in the long run. Proof of this is the bail out that the taxpayers paid for. And that the government had to step in to or the economy would have been even worst. (Still think we are in a Depression not a rescission) Also the CEO of Enron for conspiracy and multiple counts of fraud is one example of dishonesty, fraud, disregarding one professional responsibility by given themselves Astronomical salaries and enormous benefits this reduces profits of the stockholders, who own the company.
