ONCE ONLY
INDUSTRIAL PARK OFFER!

In Q1 only, ready-made chip plants are available in industrial parks. This offer only applies in the EU and US. The plants will be able to produce in Q1. However, accelerated training of the local personnel requires a temporary expense of $500K in the US and €360K in EU. There is room for only one plant per Co. and area.

Companies interested in this one-time opportunity should complete the orange W2 form and submit it to the Facilitator. Participating firms also need send a service payment (the orange W1 form) to Company 99 to cover the extra training costs mentioned above.

Production of any good in a given quarter invariably goes into the inventory of the producer in that same Q. Thus, Industrial Park chip companies will not be able to ship their chips to PC producers until Q2; and, to be available for PC production in Q2, the chips must be transferred by air.

TRANSFER STARTING CAPITAL
TO AREA(S)

Plants you build in your operating Area(s), variable manufacturing cost (cash part), any methods improvement, advertising, the cash part of any goods bought from Nippon (see below), plus any other expenses incurred in the Area all call for transfer of adequate starting capital from Home Office (HO) to the area. Use your budgeting spreadsheet to ensure you transfer enough capital into each area. Advice: do not count on any sales revenue in Q1 - let it be the desirable “cushion”.

To transfer the requisite start-up funds fill out Form A3 (you need one A3 form for each area where you are active!). The simplest approach is to transfer Swiss Francs and use the automatic conversion function. In the first column, indicate:

 F (transfer from HO to area)…...

...non-durables into double digits. Significantly, capital goods production recorded a growth of 7.5% after 13 successive months of decline. Inflation Headline WPI inflation edged down to 7.2% in November due to softening of prices of vegetables, minerals and fuel. The new combined (rural and urban) CPI (Base : 2010 = 100) inflation increased in November, reflecting sustained food inflation pressures, particularly for vegetables, cereals, pulses, oils and fats. Monetary and Liquidity Conditions Money Supply (M3) growth remained below its indicative trajectory due to lower deposit growth; non-food credit growth rose above the indicative trajectory of 16% suggesting some pick-up in economic activity. Liquidity conditions have remained tight in Q3 due to large government balances with RBI and a widening wedge between deposit & credit growth. To contain the liquidity deficit at reasonable levels, RBI conducted Open Market Operations (OMOs) on December 4 and 11, injecting primary liquidity of `232 billion. Accordingly, money market rates remained close to the repo rate.

...Intopia Report Table of Contents Strategy. 1 Execution or Implementation. 1 Conclusion. 2 Simulation Learning Lessons. 2 General Management Learning Lessons. 2 Peer Review of Your Team Members. 3 Strategy Throughout the game, our strategy was to be an integrated producer of the highest quality and sell to the open market; the consumers. By doing so, our company was following a strategy of vertically related diversification. The reason this strategy was chosen was to maximize the value creation of the final product by eventually controlling the entire value chain. Moreover, by following a vertical integration strategy, our company would be able to avoid the problems of potential double-marginalisation. By choosing a related diversification, this increased the potential to maximize value by sharing key competitive capabilities and competitive advantages. In addition, we would realize economies of scope and thus reduce costs by using the same functional capabilities such as research and development, distribution, marketing, as well as sales. Furthermore, by following this corporate strategy in multi-market activities, we would be able to incur corporate advantages such as those of being able to transfer capital to minimize taxation. Another key aspect of choosing this strategy was that our corporation would not be subject to the perils of market exchange and contractual problems with other......

Gemstarr Q3

...3.The SEC had all the right reasons to criticize KPMG on relying too much on quantitative measures when making their materiality judgment. Under Audit Section 9312A.11, auditors should lean towards quantitative measures when there is materiality in an element or elements of the financial statements that could affect the judgment of a reasonable person who will rely on the financial statements. It’s normal for an auditor to use quantitative measures on elements such as revenues, components of total assets, gross profit, components of shareholders equity, and cash flows from operations. Since users are relying heavily on financial statements, it’s imperative that auditors use their best judgment and professional skepticism when auditing those particular elements on the financial statement. The KPMG auditors failed to take qualitative materiality into account. They overlooked the measures on the interactive platform sector which lead them to misrepresent Gemstar’s financial statements. Under AU 9312A.16, qualitative measures should be used when an element on the financial statements is pervasive to the particular entity whether it is material or not. It’s best to use qualitative measures when the risks in the company are higher than usual and if there are numerous misstatements. Unfortunately, in audit, there isn’t one exclusive way to handle every scenario and situation; every case is different from the other. Thus, auditors should look at all the given issues and should......

...the project would be his baby all the way, but the success of the project, which was no doubt very challenging, would have given the boost to my career for which I have pursued MBA. Q2. Do engineers with MBA degrees aspire to high position in management? Ans. Yes, engineers with MBA degrees do aspire for higher position in management. The reason for this is * MBA provides you with a bigger picture of business. * MBA is considered to be an expensive education so students try to maximise their return on investment. * MBA is very much theoretical and it is important to work in a bigger role to put those theories to practice. * The basic need for an MBA is learning and sometimes the desire to rise up the management ladder. Q3. Was Gary qualified to be a project manager? Ans. Gary was well educated with an MBA degree in is portfolio. He was one of the best engineers that his company had but he didn’t had any experience of working in projects. He was technically very good at his work but his skills in managing people and performing under pressure was not tested. Some previous experience of working in small roles in projects or important roles in smaller projects may have helped Gary to take on the project as big as the Blue Spider Project....

...grown significantly enabling them to borrow higher loan amount due to higher repaying capacity. The scenario of unprecedented growth in housing finance, driven by low interest rates, increasing purchasing power and attraction of the yield in this sector has begun to show signs of change last year. There has been a decrease in demand during the last one year. Earlier to that i.e., during 2009 to 2010 home prices increased at a CAGR of 30 to 40 percent against a 20 percent increment in salaries witnessed in metros and large cities. This had affected the buyer‘s affordability. As the borrowing cost for banks and housing finance companies steadily increased in line with rising interest rates in the economy in the past two years up to Q3 of 2010-11, banks and housing finance companies resorted to hike in interest rates so as to maintain their interest spreads. Interest rates on new home loan originations have increased significantly by 200 basis points during April‗2011 to September October‘ 2011. As a result a higher proportion of monthly income was being paid out as home loan equated monthly instalments (EMI). The combined effect of an increase in property prices and interest rates has meant that home loan buyers, who would have had to borrow less at an interest rate of 8.75 percent a year ago, now have to borrow more to buy the same property due to higher property prices at higher interest rates of 10.5 to 11 percent. This trend has resulted in both lower......

...GDP Research Paper Kechen Sun Econ-201 Spring 2016 Gross Domestic Product, also known as GDP, is defined as the dollar value of all final goods and service produced within the border of a country during a specific period of time, typically in one year. GDP measures the value for the whole country, and it also changes quickly. We can take a look at the trends of US GDP in the website of the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis. In the time period shown in the BEA release highlights document (2015, bea.gov), it is clear that real GDP increased 2.0 percent in the third quarter of 2015, according to the third estimate by the BEA. The document also states that the main driver of the increasing GDP is the rise in consumer spending on nondurable and durable goods, also on service especially health care (2015, bea.gov). There are also other factors contributed to the increase of GDP, such as Business investment, state and local government spending, residential investment, and exports. Another highlight of GDP in 2015 is the 1.6 percent decrease of corporate profit in third quarter after the 3.5 percent increase in the second quarter. In the third quarter, while profits of domestic nonfinancial corporation and the profits from the rest of the world decrease, profits of domestic financial corporations increased (2015, bea.gov). The time period that shows the most significant amount of growth of GDP in the document was from 2013 to 2014. In the document, it shows in the second...

...IPO Paper – Carmen Ramos Pandora Media, Inc. is an internet streaming radio service used by more than 80 million listeners. Pandora, which has a catalog of 800,000 songs from more than 80,000 artists, has roughly half the market for Internet radio in 2010, according to a study published in November by Ando Media. Though the service is wildly popular, it has yet to make a profit. As part of the company's Music Genome Project, songs are analyzed according to musical features -- including details of instrumentation, harmony, lyrics, melody, rhythm, and vocals. Users enter the name of a song, and Pandora creates a playlist of songs with similar characteristics. Pandora's service, free to its more than 80 million registered users and available only in the US, is supported by local and national advertising. While listening, users are offered the ability to buy the songs or albums at various online retailers. The Pandora media player is based on OpenLaszlo. Pandora can also be accessed through many stand-alone players, such as the Roku DVP (formerly Netflix player) Reciva-based radios (from companies like Grace Digital, Sanyo, and Sangean), Frontier Silicon-based connected audio systems, Slim Devices, and Sonos product(s). On July 11, 2008, Pandora launched a mobile version of their software for the Apple iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch through the iTunes App Store.
