Question 901  Growth options/optimal level/ actual budget and adopt a maturity matching approach to financing assets

Part One: Financial Management Would a failure to recognize growth options tend to cause a firm’s actual capital budget to be above or below the optimal level? Would your answer be the same for abandonment, timing, and flexibility options?

Explain using a practical/hypothetical example from your industry. Part Two What does it mean to adopt a maturity matching approach to financing assets, including current assets? How would a more aggressive or a more conservative approach differ from the maturity matching approach, and how would each affect expected profits and risk? In general, is one approach better than the others?

Use your industry for illustration. Part three Suppose a new and more liberal Congress and administration are elected. Their first order of business is to take away the independence of the Federal Reserve System and to force the Fed to greatly expand the money supply. What effect will this have on your organization and/or industry? What about interest rates and the general consumer? Would you support or oppose such an expansion? Why?

Question 902 Financial Management

Discussion # 4 Part One Financial Management (capital Budget level) Would a failure to recognize growth options tend to cause a firm’s actual capital budget to be above or below the optimal level? Would your answer be the same for abandonment, timing, and flexibility options?

Explain using a practical/hypothetical example from your industry. Part Two Executive salaries have been shown to be more closely correlated to the size of the firm than to its profitability. If a firm’s board of directors is controlled by management rather than outside directors, this might result in the firm’s retaining more earnings than can be justified from the stockholders’ point of view.

Question 920 Crisis at Canoe

I want someone to write me a negative message for my Business Communication class assignment. Please follow the instruction below:

For this writing task, you’ll need to respond to the following scenario: 

Who are you? 

Aqua, a fine-dining boutique restaurant in Malibu, California, is frequented by celebrities and other wealthy patrons who relish its exotic menu and extraordinary wine list.

It is the flagship restaurant in Premier Dining Group’s chain of high-end eateries located throughout Southern California. As manager of this fine establishment, you work very hard to maintain the exceptionally high standards for which the restaurant is famous.

What is the scenario? 

In addition to serving high-quality food and beverages, your responsibilities as restaurant manager include ensuring compliance with Los Angeles County’s strict “restaurant grading” ordinance.

This ordinance enforces mandatory inspection of retail food facilities, and inspected facilities receive letter grades according to their inspection scores. Letter grades are required to be prominently posted at all establishments selling food, and upon request, all establishments are required to provide a copy of the inspection to any customer.

Aqua has consistently maintained its “A” rating because of your vigilance, and this has not gone unnoticed by your superiors, who hold you in very high regard. 

You were surprised when you picked up the phone that morning and Creshema Thomas, the chief operations officer of Premier Dining Group, was on the other end.

She normally called at the end of each month to get an update on sales and performance.

There was, however, another reason for her call today. Located in Pasadena, Canoe, another restaurant in the group, had been experiencing some profitability challenges over the last two years, incurring particularly huge losses in the previous quarter. At the board meeting last week, the shareholders unanimously voted to divest this property. Exit Realty, a very successful commercial real estate company, had been hired to market the property to potential buyers.

Prior to listing any property for sale, Exit Realty conducts a comprehensive evaluation of the property to ensure that it is well-positioned for a quick sale. As part of their evaluation procedure, Exit Realty requested that a preliminary compliance report be forwarded to its office as soon as possible.

Ms. Thomas had some concerns. A new restaurant manager had been appointed at Canoe approximately one week ago, and he lacked familiarity with the LA County restaurant grading ordinance. She was nervous because a questionable inspection report would reflect poorly on the restaurant and possibly all other restaurants in the group. She requested that you conduct the preliminary inspection to determine whether Canoe was compliant with LA County’s food handling, storage, and preparation regulations. She indicated that Hiroaki Kim, the agent representing Exit Realty, was eager to receive the inspection report before the end of the week.

The LA County restaurant grading ordinance stipulates the following with regard to food handling, storage, and preparation: 

 · To avoid food contamination, frozen food may be prepared from a frozen state or it must be refrigerated at temperatures below 38 degrees F. For up to two hours, you may thaw frozen food under running water at a temperature of 70 degrees F. or below. ·

To avoid cross-contamination, equipment used to prepare food must be cleaned and sanitized between uses and particular care must be exercised when handling potentially harmful food such as raw poultry, beef, or fish. There is a “danger zone” temperature of 40–140 degrees F. within which food bacteria multiply rapidly and can thrive. The temperature of food should be kept out of this zone. ·

Safe food storage requires that all foods be wrapped and stored in a clean place. Each item in the walk-in refrigerator, freezer and dry storage should be in a sealed container or package with a label identifying the contents and the date on which they were received. All meats, seafood, vegetables, and dairy products must be refrigerated. The refrigerator temperature must be below 38 degrees F. Freezers should keep foods below 0 degrees F, and items in dry storage should be kept between 50–70 degrees F. with a relative humidity of 50–60%. A working thermometer must be kept in each unit at all times so that problems may be identified at a glance. · To ensure proper hygiene of food preparation staff, it is essential that they wear safety hair nets, gloves, and clean uniforms.

When you arrive at Canoe at 9 a.m. the next day, the kitchen is abuzz with activity, and food preparation is underway for the lunch service. The kitchen staff looks wonderful in their bright, clean uniforms. You remove your coat because it feels a little warm in there, and you notice that the kitchen thermometer reads 73 degrees F. A large frozen turkey lies defrosting in a dish on the counter. The head chef explains that he is preparing a chicken casserole and a beef vegetable soup for the lunch special. You observe that his assistant is busy chopping the beef into tiny cubes. Once she gets done and uses the same chopping instrument, she starts chopping the chicken into small pieces. You notice that she did not clean and sanitize the instrument before using it to chop the chicken. The chef and his assistants are all wearing gloves, but none of them appear to be wearing hairnets.

You inspect the refrigerator and freezer and notice that they are both spotlessly clean and well-organized. You also note that all the items in these units are stored in sealed containers. You are, however, unable to tell what is held in each container because none of them is labeled or dated. You look for thermometers to record the respective temperature in each unit and discover that neither unit has a thermometer in it. You then walk into the dry storage room that, apart from being extremely clean, has every item neatly stored and properly labeled. The reading on the thermometer is 66 degrees F., and the hygrometer, which measures relative humidity, reads 55%. You continue to observe the activities in the main kitchen for a few more hours; and as you get ready to leave at 1 p.m., you notice the turkey, now a little less frozen, still lying on the counter. You plan to complete and submit the report to Ms. Thomas before you return to Aqua tonight.

How do you complete this activity? 

Draft the body of an appropriate document that Ms. Thomas can forward to the agent at Exit Realty. 

Develop a response that includes examples and evidence to support your ideas, and which clearly communicates the required message to your audience.

Organize your response in a clear and logical manner as appropriate for the genre of writing. Use well-structured sentences, audience-appropriate language, and correct conventions of standard American English.

Question 927 Business Week 6 LAs and Memo

Learning Activity #1 Frank Pulley was the General Manager of Fred Arnold’s, “Arnold’s Moving and Storage”, a family-owned business.

He had been with the company since he got out of high school. He worked summers and vacations to make money during his college years. The company had grown as did Frank.

When Frank graduated from college with his degree in business management, he was given the job of Office Accounts Manager. He managed the money for the business. During the evening, Frank went to school and received his MBA in Finance.

By then, Arnold’s had expanded to include long-distance moving as well as office moves in the Mid-Atlantic area. The company was making over $3,000,000 in sales and was growing at a rate of 8% -10 % a year.

The competition was strong in the Mid-Atlantic region so Fred wanted to expand southward. About this time, Fred’s son decided it was time to come back into the business. He had been working in IT in Miami.

He liked Miami and felt he could work from there and bring the business down the Eastern Seaboard. Frank had been with the business for 12 years now and felt that with Fred’s son now back in the business, it might be time to leave. Fred saw Frank at lunch one day shortly after Frank started looking for a new job. “Frank, I just heard that you are looking for a senior management position.

In fact, I had to hear it from Janice Jeppy of all people. I ran into her at the bank. She says you applied to Jeppy Movers for a job and was wondering why you would want to switch moving companies. I am wondering too.

Don’t you want to stay with us?” Frank was surprised. The thought had never occurred to him. He assumed that Mr. Arnold’s son and daughter would take over the business. Both of Fred’s children had been working in the business since they were in high school.

“I don’t want to leave Mr. Arnold,” Frank replied, “but I assumed that with Frank back in the business, he would take over. I just couldn’t see where there was room for advancement.”

Fred was afraid this is what the boy would say. His son was bright and showed promise, but Fred knew they needed experienced people like Frank to keep the company moving forward.

Frank was great support for the business and would be the best support that he and his son could have. Fred wondered how he could keep Frank in the business.

“Come see me tomorrow at 10 a.m., Frank and we will talk. I can’t let you go to Jeppy Movers, can I”?

• What Can Fred Arnold do to keep Frank now and in the future? Include in the discussion how the growth of the company will affect Fred’s ideas.

• Also, address succession and Frank’s role in the business going forward. Learning Activity

#2 • How might Arnold’s son attempt to engage the business in the Miami community to solidify the company’s move southward?

• Explain how small businesses and community support are important to business sustainability?
