only read the instruction and follow carefully

create and write a short Business project, FINANCIAL knowledge STRONGLY required!

This part requires you to use your imagination, be creative; learning should be fun too! Pretend I am a wealthy businessman with lots of current cash on hand (earning me no return, not a good thing) and you are starting a firm or have a current firm and are pitching a new project to have me invest.

Step 1: Tell me about your firm/project BRIEFLY

Step 2 Tell me/show me about you projections of your past/present/future sales, costs, ratios, income, OCFs, etc.

Step 3: Value your company/project to ask me for the money to undertake the project (i.e. think of appropriate discount rates due to risk, growth rates, etc.)

TIPS:

NPV analysis is the overarching goal of the project, without it, you will fail the project

-so, you probably will need OCF, CAPEX and NWC, right?

-How did you get to those numbers? (can be sort of made up, but reasonable)

-depending on your setting will determine what ‘financials’ you present

-I think 1 page max, single space writing is sufficient

-you may have a few tables and charts so I will not limit those…BUT more is not always better.

-A useful chart/graph is priceless. A non-useful one is detrimental.

-How did you get to the risk? i.e. discount rate.

Question 2, how to get the money

ALWAYS remember…pretend I was your boss and asked for this project as a part of your job, what

would you turn in?
