Brief Statement The constant hurdle rate has been taking some heat from investors and has been addressed by Victor Yossarian. As part of the company’s responsibility, we are moving forward and evaluating the firm in its current state. The analysis taking place will provide arguments for using a constant hurdle rate versus segment risk-adjusted hurdle rates. The goal of the evaluation is to use the method that will benefit the term in the long-run and provide a better project assessment for future forecasts. The Firm’s Current State Teletech has been using a single corporate-wide hurdle rate to assess projects, allocate funds, and as the discount rate.

Point #2: Tariffs protect American jobs and wages. (Points: 13) I find this position to be valid. Protective tariffs are designed to raise the retail price of imported products so that domestic goods are more competitively priced (Nickels, McHugh & McHugh, 2008, p. 76). Therefore, if products are competitively priced then the consumer will be more likely to purchase domestic products instead of imports. Since consumers will be more likely to support American vendors, this will keep the American businesses running and not force them to cut costs to compete with imports.
a) What are the consequences of telling the president of your gross miscalculation? In order to determine the sales and income projection, it is useful to forecast the budget based on prior performance of the company. The business performance of the current year will shows how the company is actually performed and this is a good indication to expect the company will perform better in future. As to obtain an accurate sales projection, we collected all the information from the company because each area of business operation might have a separate budget. For example, Fernetti Conductor has a specific budget for advertising, purchasing, sales production and cash budget.
Auditors should not require their clients to accept and correct all the adjustments. In the audit process, auditors are easily to hold different opinions with management over financial statements; especially over the accounts require personal judgments. But auditors are not always right, and their clients may disagree with the misstatements detected by auditors. According to AU §312.43, after timely communication between auditors and management, management has the right to disagree with the audit adjustment. Also, in Auditing Standard No.14 of PCAOB, it says the communication just gives the management an opportunity to correct misstatements.
LIT1 Task 1 SOLE PROPRIETORSHIP: As the first word in the name suggests there is no distinction between the owner and the business, legally they are viewed as one entity. When it comes to starting a business this option is a perfect one because there is little to no start-up cost and autonomy since it is now your sole responsibility. The main disadvantage to this type of business is that financially the owner may find it hard to start up because any money that I loaned is a personal loan. • LIABILITY – The owner (proprietor) is liable for all debts and profits the business is and vice versa. The business and the owner are one entity so when the business owes on a debt the owner’s personal assets are liable to be taken as payment
Current ratios show relative amount of working capital, while quick ratios show the amount of quick assets by current liabilities. “Ratio analysis is an important and powerful technique or method, general, used for financial analysis. The purpose of financial analysis is to diagnose the information content in financial statements so as to judge the profitability, financial soundness of the firm, and chalk out the way to improve existing performance.” (Ramagopal, 2008) Duke Energy’s Current ratio is 3.54; this is calculated by current assets, 2,049 million, divided by current liabilities, 578 million. There is no current problem with the liquidity in this company. The quick ratio is .33 and this is calculated by cash and accounts receivable, 1,501,000+ 1,316,000 divided by current liabilities, 8,644,000.
For Pharma to survive and become viable it was obvious that some decisions had to be made, but was the sale of the assets in the best interest of the corporation, or was it in the best interest of Adams and Barker? One can only conclude that the directors violated all their duties of financial interests, care and rational belief and were not acting with best information and, thus, cannot be shielded by the business judgment rule. 7. What type of lawsuit, derivative or direct, would be filed by Cornelius
1.How has the Investment Office selected, compensated, and controlled private equity fund managers? What explains the differences between its strategy in private equity with that in other asset classes? As for private equity asset allocation the Investment Office focused on finding external "value-added investors" with the sterling capability to build better businesses not only financially but mainly operationally. They believed this strategy led to enhancing returns independently of the market downturns. Thus, a limited number of long-standing partnerships were created - exclusively with partners aligned with the generalized investment policies of the Investment Office - with "over 90% of the portfolio invested in highly prestigious funds sponsored by the general partners of the university's group".
