You have been promoted to the Manager of Global Expansion. The executive team in your company has made a decision to expand into two countries, which has become your first priority. Your first obstacle came when the governments of these two countries delayed approval of the expansion plans. You held a meeting with your employees to brainstorm on how to overcome the delay. One of your employees who has done business in these countries before suggests that if you offer a bribe to the government official, any future deals will go much smoother. Without a bribe, you might lose the deal altogether. This is a normal practice in these countries and is not considered to be illegal.

After the meeting, consider whether or not your company should agree to pay a bribe and why or why not?

To continue to learn more and make an informed decision, Use the Project Management Institute (PMI)’s guidelines for ethical decision making.

Document how you made your final decision to overcome the delay in a two-page report. Be sure to respond to each of the guidelines.

Problem set 2

Dilli Bista, MBA is the financial manager for Computron Inc. a large public corporation specializing in software manufacturing. The company designs and develops software programs that allow users to create their own documents, apps, animations, and other media content. Despite a huge investment made last three years in fixed assets, the company’s sales revenue and profit margins have decreased over the years because of the Covid-19 pandemic and complaints of some parents about the effect of video games on their kids’ social life and academic performance. Dilli is analyzing the company’s financial statements and annual reports to determine the financial performance of the company for the year and see how the performance can be improved.

Dilli noticed that last year the company had $4 million in operating income (EBIT). The company had a depreciation expense of $1 million and an interest expense of $1 million. The company’s tax rate is 25%. The company has $14 million in operating current assets and $4 million in operating current liabilities and has $15 million in net plant and equipment. The company has after-tax cost of capital of 10%.

1. List four types of financial statements that the company’s annual report typically include. State three items that can be found in each of the financial statement of Computron Inc.

2. Determine Computron’s net income for the year. Show your calculations.

3. What was Computron’s net cash flow?

4. What was Computron’s net operating profit after taxes (NOPAT)?

5. Calculate net operating working capital and total net operating capital for the year.

6. Calculate Computron’s free cash flow for the year if net operating capital in the previous year was $24 million.

7. Explain to the chairman of the board five uses of free cash flow that can help maximize the value of the firm.

8. Explain Economic Value Added (EVA) and compute Computron’s EVA if total net operating capital is $25 million? The company’s after-tax cost of capital is 10.0%.

9.  Compute and explain market value added (MVA) for Computron using the following information:

            i. total number of shares outstanding is 2 million

            ii.  current stock price is $35 per share

            iii. total common equity is $68.2 million

10. Calculate the company’s return on invested capital (ROIC). Do you think Computron’s growth added value?

Activity: Capital Budgeting Practice

Complete the following and submit it in a Word document. Be sure to show your process and calculations:

  1. Assume you have just retired as the CEO of a successful company. A major publisher has offered you a book deal. The publisher will pay you $1 million up front if you agree to write a book about your experiences. You estimate that it will take three years to write the book. The time you spend writing will cause you to give up speaking engagements amounting to $500,000 per year. You estimate your opportunity cost to be 10%.
    • Should you accept this deal? Plot a diagram that measures NPV (on the y-axis) vs. discount rate (on the x-axis) to solve this problem. (Hint: Have your scale on the x-axis go to 50% (discount rate)).
    • Determine the IRR for this deal. (Hint: IRR is the point at which NPV = 0)
  2. Suppose you inform the publisher that it needs to sweeten the deal before you will accept it. The publisher offers $550,000 advance and $1,000,000 in four years when the book is published.
    • Should you accept or reject the new offer?  Again, plot a diagram that measures NVP (on the y-axis) vs. discount rate (on the x-axis) to solve this problem.  (Hint: Have your scale on the x-axis go to 50% (discount rate)).
    • Determine the IRRs for this deal (Hint: There are two IRRs for this problem).
    • Discuss if the IRR rule for making budgetary decisions can be used in this case.
  3. Finally, you are able to get the publisher to increase your advance to $750,000, in addition to the $1 million when the book is published in four years.
    • Should you accept or reject this new offer?  Again, plot a diagram that measures NVP (on the y-axis) vs. discount rate (on the x-axis) to solve this problem. (Hint: Have your scale on the x-axis go to 50% (discount rate)).
    • Determine the IRR for this deal.
  4. State three conclusions regarding the use of IRR vs. NPV that you can make from questions 2–4. Which is the stronger method to use (IRR or NPV), and why?
