#2 Mini Case: The Conch Republic Electronics, Part 1 (Will provide textbook scanned documents):

Case Study:

After you have completed the readings for chapter 10, you should be ready to complete this assignment. Return to the case study on p.341-342 of the text and reread it carefully. As you are thinking about your response, please remember that one thing about cases – usually the quick answer is not the correct one. You need to be able to decide what the issues at hand are and what information is really critical to giving the correct advice.

Use the questions at the end of the case for guidance, but remember you may add to your explanations. One thing that student’s tend to do with a case is bring in more information than what is needed – stick to the facts as presented in the case and the chapter readings.

Please prepare and submit a 1-3 page response including synthesis of chapter readings and applications to corporate organizational structure.

Upon Completion of this mini-case, you will demonstrate your ability to:

Apply the calculations for payback analysis of a capital project.

Apply the calculations for profitability analysis of a capital project.

Apply the calculations for a NPV analysis of a capital project.

Apply the calculations for a IRR analysis of a capital project.

Make an appropriate recommendation based on the facts presented.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

#3 Mini Case: Ford Company Capital Budgeting Project:

 

You are provided with the following information to determine Ford’s weighted average cost of capital that will be used for capital project calculations.  As a Finance Analyst for Ford, you will calculate and support the development of its weighted average cost of capital and communicate it to the CFO of Ford.  After you have calculated the required data points in the two tables below, provide a brief paper (approximately 300 to 400 words) to the CFO summarizing the weighted average cost of capital you determined for Ford, where they may be risks in the calculation (how the calculation may change over time), how the weighted average cost of capital you calculated should be applied when making cost of capital project decisions, and some scenarios that the CFO should be aware of that may change the weighted average cost of capital at some future point. Your discussion of the scenarios should cover aspects of management, marketing and broader economic factors that may influence the weighted average cost of capital.
