Task 3
Deborah U. Myers The definition of capital structure is a “combination of a company’s long term debt, specific short term debt, common equity, and preferred equity, the capital structure is the firm’s various sources of funds use to finance its overall operations and growth. Debt comes in the form of bond issues or long-term notes payable, whereas equity is classified as common stock, preferred stock, or retained earnings. Short-term debt such as working capital requirements also is considered part to the capital structure (The Free Dictionary, 09).” “A mix or a company’s long-term debt, specific short-term debt, common equity and preferred equity. The capital structure is how a firm finances its overall operations and growth by using difference sources of funds (Investopedia).” Basically Capital Structure is that the company should be able to manage the company with growth by using a combination of debt and equity for maintaining its financial status for survival. Debt is bond issues that are long-term notes payable, equity is common or preferred stock or retained earnings. Capital Structure is also known as debt-to-ratio equity ratio which will give a view of the company in terms or risk. Equity capital is moneys that are given and owned by shareholders. There are two types of equity capital: 1. Contributed Capital in which money invested is in exchange for company stock. 2. Retained earnings are the profits from past years that have been collected and used to strengthen the budget or fund growth of the company by acquisition or expansion.
Equity capital is often viewed as an expensive type of capital which can be used by the company due to the cost, which in turn requires that the company must attract more investment. Debt capital is the money that is borrowed and is put to work by the company. Long-term debt is most often…...

...Concerns Competition Bikes budget has several areas of concern that need to be address. 1. Units expected to be sold for year nine is 3510. Competition Bikes is predicting that they will sell 3510 Bikes but they only sold 3400 Bikes in year eight down 15% from year seven 4000 units sold. Competitions Bikes has budget to high because the current economic down turn is showing no signs of relief for the next three years. Many of Competition Bikes customers are sponsored riders and many sponsors have pulled their funding to their rides. Competition Bikes has not presents a plan that would support their projections. Competition Bikes should lower there should lower the expected units sold so not to over order raw materials that will not be needed. 2. Competition Bikes has budgeted $150,000 for utilities for year nine the same as year eights. In year seven Competition Bikes only spent $135,000 on utilities and they produced 4000 units compared to year eights 3400 units. The utilities budget is too high it should be lowered because less units than 4000 will be produced. 3. Total cost of frame materials is $1,326,778 to produce 3510 units, they have budgeted too high for raw materials need for year nine for two reasons. One they have over projected on the amount of units they will sell in year nine. Two Competition Bikes has $91, 573 in raw materials and $130,260 of work in process inventory from year eight that can be used in year nine to reduce this cost. 4. Other General and Admin......

...JET2 TASK 2 1 JET 2 TASK 2: Financial Analysis Theo Adams Western Governors University MBA Program JET2 TASK 2 2 (A1) Budget Concerns Investopedia defines Budget as an "estimation of the expenses and revenues over a specific future period of time. Budgets can be made for a group of people, family, person, country, business, government, organization or anything else that makes or spend money. The budget is a micro economic concept that shows the trade-offs made when one good is exchange for another." When looking at the year 9 budget for CB first thing that jumped out at me was the sales goal of 3510 is a 5247450. This is my first immediate concern considering that the storyline has clearly stated it is a down market due to the reductions in monies for sponsored professional riders from their sponsors. This is the main sources sales for the Carbonlite model from CB. The professional riders not having the same resources they had in year 7 when sales went to 4000 from the 3000 sold in year 6. which meant CB's revenue went from 4485000 in year 6 to 5980000 in year 7. This 33.3% jump was followed by 15% drop from 4000 units sold in year 7 to 3400 units sold in year 8. Again this drop was due to the cut in sponsorship money for the professional riders which ended up reflecting at the drop in revenue as well from year 7 to 8 of 5980000 to 4485000. These facts do not seem to warrant an increase in sales from 3400 units to 3510 units and an Increased Revenue to 5247450.......

...Costing Method: The excel document title, “JET2 Task 1-4 Workbook” and tabs ‘Task 4 Cost-Volume-Profit’, and “Task 4 Activity Based Costing” is where the information is derived from and recommendations will be made based off of the information in these tabs. The excel document title, “JET2 Task 1-4 Workbook” and tab ‘Task 4 Cost-Volume-Profit’ highlights two unit costs methods: traditional and activity based. Each unit cost method will be analyzed and a recommendation will be made regarding which costing method should be used by Competition Bikes. Traditional method to figure out costs- this method computes the overhead cost of titanium bikes at $239,020 and the overhead costs of carbonlite bikes at $232,380 for a total overhead cost of $471,400 ($239,020 + $232,380= $471,400). Again this information was derived from the excel document titled, “JET2 Task 1-4 Workbook” and by clicking on tab ‘Task 4 Cost-Volume-Profit’ and by viewing the second half of the page, looking at the summary of traditional and carbonlite overhead costs. Once the overhead costs are known the direct costs for each bike will be added to that number. So for titanium bikes the direct cost is $402,300 plus the overhead cost $239,020= $ 641,320 for titanium bikes. For carbonlite bikes the direct cost is $447,000 + $232,380= $679,380. The $641,320 for the titanium bikes is considered the total cost and the $679,380 is considered the total cost for the carbonlite bikes. Take the total cost for each......

...Jet2 task 3 Competition Bikes, Inc.Financial AnalysisJET2 Task 3 Introduction Competition Bikes, Incorporated (CBI) has decided to weigh their options for expansion into Canada by either acquiring or merging with Canadian Bikes, Inc. This report will discuss the proposed expansion and make recommendations based on the company's capital structure. Capital structure can be described as how a business finances its assets. There are two main types of capital: Equity and debt. Capital structure is usually a mix of debt, preferred stock, and common stock that the company can use for expansion and to remain financially healthy. The key is to choose the right mix in order to maximize shareholder return. A1. Capital Structure Capital structure is generally defined as how a company finances its assets. It is measured as a percentage of debt and equity (common and preferred stock). Potential investors tend to look positively on a company that has more equity and less debt. The best capital structure approach for CBI to take is to implement the 50% Preferred and 50% Common Stock scenario. This alternative provides the best overall way to improve CBI's financial position with strong capital structure while maximizing shareholder return. A1a. A review of Canadian Bikes data over five years indicates consistently increased earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT), increased net profit, and increased shareholder returns (EPS). Offering the 50% preferred and 50% common......

...JET2 Task 3 A. Competition Bikes, Inc. (CBI) currently finds itself in a position in which it can feasibly expand its business. As such, the company has identified Canada as a potential market into which it may expand and has further identified Canadian Biking, Inc. (CABI) as a potential avenue of expansion. Specifically, CBI is investigating whether it should merge with CABI or instead purchase the company. This report will analyze the company’s various options with regard to such an expansion and will ultimately make a recommendation as to whether merger or acquisition of CABI would be best for CBI. A1. Capital structure refers to the money being utilized within a company, and it is divided into two types of capital: debt capital and equity capital (Kennon, 2013). Debt capital refers to the percentage of the company’s capital that is borrowed, while equity capital is money provided by the company’s shareholders (Kennon, 2013). Furthermore, equity capital is represented in two types: retained earnings and contributed capital. The latter, contributed capital is the money that was originally put forth to fund the company (Kennon, 2013). These funds were provided in exchange for stakes in the company’s ownership. Retained earnings refer to the profits that have been earned and collected from previous years and put aside to be used by the company for expansion (Kennon, 2013). As CBI looks to expand into the Canadian market, it must first determine which capital......

...JET2 Task 2 A1. Concerns There are many concerns with the budget planning for Competition Bike. From year 2006 to 2008, Competition Bike experienced a 13.3% increase in sales. In year 9, sales are projected to increase to 3510 units to give sales revenue of $5,247,450. This is a bold increase after 3400 units sold in 2008 and 4000 sold in 2007. I do not think the sales will be as robust with the economy rebounding. Sales projections should be 3425 with net sales at $5,120,375. Since the Competition Bike Company projected overly optimistic sales, there are several areas in the budget that will be affected. The areas affected are Sales Commission, Transportation Out, Advertising, Research and Development, Raw Materials, and Labor. * Sales Commission: With commissions budgeted for 3% of sales revenue, this amount is budgeted too high since the budgeted net sales is inflated * Advertising: This expense line will be incorrect due to it being based on 2% of the Gross Margin. The Gross Margin will be off due to inflated projections. * Raw Materials: Due to inflated sales projections, the raw materials cost should be lowered to reflect a realistic net sales projection. * Labor: Labor cost should be reduced due to fewer hours being used with my projection of fewer units being sold as compared to the 2009 projections. It takes 15 hours/unit, so with fewer than projected sales, this should be reduced. * Transportation Out: Since the projected sales...

A Horizontal Analysis looks at data from one year to the next, usually over a three year span. This company’s Horizontal Analysis is comparing year six to year seven and year seven to year eight. While evaluating the company’s operational strengths and weaknesses, and analyzing the results of the Income Statement for years six, seven, and eight, there were several areas of concern. Years seven and eight shows the most areas of concern for the company. However, while analyzing years six and seven, there were some positive results for the company. During years six and seven, there was an increase in revenue. Net sales increased by 33.3% increase. The cost of goods sold also increased. This was an increase of 31.8%. The fact of increase with both of these analysis showed positive results. The increase of net sales should always be more than the increase in cost of goods. If this does not happen, than the company is spending more on parts and supplies than they are making on goods sold. This also showed the company was able to sell more bikes at a lower cost than they had to spend on the supplies needed to make the bikes. This was proven by the company showing a 37.5% increase in gross......

...Running head: JET2 TASK 2 1 JET2 Task 2 Budgeting Bonnie Wilson Western Governors University JET2 TASK 2 A.1. Operational Strengths and Weaknesses A.1. Budget Concerns 2 Revenue from sales is budgeted too high. In year 8 Competition Bikes experienced a 15% decline in sales revenue, and yet for year 9, they have budgeted for a 3.2% increase. This is likely to be an overly optimistic projection and relies heavily on economic factors outside of the company’s control. Inaccuracy in this projection will have a negative impact on the rest of the budget. Advertising is budgeted too low. The year 9 budgeted amount of $28,412 represents a 3.5% increase over year 8, but it is still almost 20% shy of the amount spent on advertising in year 7 when sales were at an all time high. If the company is to have any hope of realizing its revenue projection, then the amount budgeted for advertising is too low. Executive compensation is budgeted too high. In year 7 executive compensation increased by $50,000 dollars. This made sense then because sales had increased by 33%. However, holding that number steady in year 8 when there was a 15% decrease, and again in year 9 when even a 3.2% increase is optimistic, is not a financially sound budgeting decision. Research and development is budgeted too low. The budgeted amount for year 9 is $85,237. While this represents the same 1.6% of sales revenue that Competition Bikes consistently allots, research and development is an investment in......

The changes in percentages is calculated and decisions are made according to the increases or declines. Competition Bikes: Year 7 Overall, year seven was a successful year for the company based on the horizontal analysis of the following financial aspects. Revenue Net sales went from $4,485,000 in year six to $5,980,000 in year seven, an increase of $1,495,000 or a 33.3% increase. The cost of goods sold in year six was $3,294,000, which increased to $4,342,000. This increase of $1,048,000, or 31.8%, was expected considering the increase in net sales. The cost of goods sold remained less than net sales, so this is a strength for the company. While both net sales and cost of goods sold increased, there was still a balance between the two. This shows that the company sold more products at a lower cost, which also attributed to the 37.5% increase in growth profits. Total Selling Expenses Total selling expenses increased from $299,220 in year six to $397,960 in year seven. This......

...JET2 - Financial Analysis - Task 4 JET2 – Task 4 A1. Costing Method Costing is used in business accounting strategies as a way of determining cost of manufacturing a product in relation to the revenue generated by that product. Costing systems determine the overhead of production and then allocate those overhead costs to a business’s product. There are two common methods for allocating these indirect costs to products, traditional costing and activity based costing. Both of these methods assess overhead costs and then attach these costs to products based on certain cost drivers, “a factor that causes cost to incur, such as machine hours, direct labor hours and direct material hours (Johnson 2014).” The first of these methods is Traditional Costing. This costing method drops all overhead costs into one bucket and then disperses them across three drivers, units produced, labor, and machine hours. Although this method works well for lines that are similar and consistent, one of its drawbacks is that this method does not account for customization requirements and overall complexity of the lines. So the company ends up allocating the same cost drivers across all production lines. The second method is Activity Based Costing. Activity based costing on the other hand, utilizes multiple cost pools as it relates to overhead costs based on resources used. Overall, this is a better cost system methodology for the company as it allows for the customization and specialty......

...Stacy Raudman 000202145 JET2 Task 2 A1 Discuss budgetary areas that raise concern in the budget planning In any business, a budget serves a specific purpose. It serves as a forecast of money coming in and money going out which then shows whether or not there is a profit. It also serves as a tool for making decisions. And, lastly, it is a means to monitor how a business is performing. Watching for profits and/or losses, will tell a company if their strategies are working or not and whether they should move in a different direction for improvement. Money, in any business, needs to be controlled and decisions need to be made on where is best for that money to be spent in the best interest of the company. Monitoring how a business is performing can tell management or investors if the company is living up to their expectations. If it isn't, the company can have the opportunity to move in a different direction for improvement. In reviewing the budget and proforma statement for Competition Bikes, there are a few areas of concern which are discussed below. In 2006, the company sold 3000 units and had a nice increase in sales in 2007 to 4000 units. In year 8 however, there was a decrease in sales down to 3400 units. The company is forecasting sales in 2009 to be 3510 units and continuing increasing the following two years as well. Due to the stated economic decline and cut back on sponsors that pay for bikes for professional riders, the company is......

There are a variety of options for expansion that the company can consider. The CEO, as should be, is concerned about the risks of expansion. He is specifically concerned about the affect on internal operations of the entity and how the company will react to external issues. The two options for expansion are building a new manufacturing facility to facilitate the expansion or merging with or acquiring a like company called European SnowFun. The options will be discussed in this report to the CEO as, in order for the expansion to move forward, a loan for one million dollars will be needed. A1Key Points Before moving forward, there are a few key points that could impact the bank officer's decision whether to approve or deny the loan. The bank officer needs to gather sufficient information to ensure the company can pay back the loan. An analysis of the financial statements will tell the company's profitability, liquidity, and also their solvency. Income Statement Net Sales – Net sales in year 12 were $6,520,500 and increased to $6,729,800 in year 13. This is an increase of $209,300 or 3.21%.
