Cisco Routers

...was in 1998 when they purchased Net Speed, Inc. This allowed them to gain a significant presence in the Internet telephony sector. By the late 1990’s Cisco Systems was the undisputed king of the networking world in July of 1998 the company’s market capitalization surpassed $100 Billion. In just 12 years after its initial public offering, revenues reached $12.5 billion by fiscal 1999. This was not stopping them, during 1999 Cisco became even more acquisitive, snatching up and additional 17 companies, in the process gaining presences in two more emerging areas, fiber-optic networking and wireless networking. In late 1999 Cisco announced that it would acquire the fiber-optic telecommunications equipment business of Italy’s Pirelli S.p.A. for about @2.2 billion. Pirelli capabilities allowed them to take a beam of light And breaks it into as many as 128 colors each of can carry a separate stream of voice, data, or video. This acquisition took Cisco's market value over $450 billion. Thus making them the third most valuable company in the world. (For a brief period in late March, Cisco actually ranked as the most valuable company in the world, with a total market capitalization of $555 billion). Revenues were soaring, as were earnings, which reached $906 million for the second quarter of the 2000 fiscal year alone. ! Competition is becoming tough for Cisco. Cisco continues to look for new opportunities however there are a lot more players because this field is so lucrative.......

Movie Review : Sweeney Todd

...of his trade to slit their throats. Below Todd's old barber shop is now a meat pie shop run by Mrs. Lovett, who admits to making the worst meat pies in London. She tells Todd that Lucy poisoned herself after being raped by Turpin, and that Johanna, now a young woman, is Turpin's ward. Johanna and a young honorable sailor named Anthony Hope, who Todd met, sailing into London, have fallen in love with each other from afar. Much like his feelings for Lucy, Turpin lusts after Johanna and wants to marry her, and thus he will do whatever he needs to get Anthony out of the way. Back at the barber shop, Todd changes his plans for revenge solely on Turpin and Beadle out of circumstance, which includes an encounter with a rival barber named Adolfo Pirelli and a close encounter with Turpin himself. Including Turpin and Beadle, Todd's revenge is now directed at all mankind that has wronged him. Todd is helped in his new endeavour by Mrs. Lovett, who has an interesting role in their collective scheme. Todd may reconsider his new collaboration with Mrs. Lovett if he were to learn her true motivations.

Cisco Case Study

...generate in revenue what Cisco paid for the company within three years after acquisition. Other specificity in the integration process is the deep “ecosystem involvement”. Executives were also investors and members of boards of directors of startups and venture capital firms in the ecosystem in which Cisco operated.   2. Why did Cisco represent a benchmark as an acquirer?     Cisco represent a benchmark for acquirer because of the success of their acquisition process for small companies during the 90’s as we described above but also for other reasons. First, Cisco’s has shown that integration difficulty occurs when the company purchased reaches a certain size. It has started with Stratacom in 1996 has been demonstrated with Pirelli in 2000. Pirelli optical was a deviation from CEO’s principal especially because of the geographic and cultural distances. Second, Cisco has shown the limits of its acquisition process especially when the goal is to enter a new market with strong competitors inside. Therefore, the acquisition of a small player is not the solution to create a maximum of value. Here is a double problem: -­‐ integration challenges due to cultural differences, -­‐ the fact that it is complicated to drive the business and to create appropriate synergies when the acquirer do not have a true idea of the marketplace. ...

On the Global Acceptance of Ias/Ifrs Accounting Standards: the Logic and Implications of the Principles-Based System

...business and economic fundamentals of transactions and events before deciding on its accounting treatment. The case of the investment made by Pirelli in Telecom Italia helps to illustrate this point. In 2001, Pirelli subscribed to 60% of a firm called Olimpia. At the same time, Olimpia had bought 27% of Olivetti, which in turn owned 55% of Telecom Italia. A mechanistic application of the 20–50% ‘‘rule” would state that Pirelli should fully consolidate Olimpia. According to this reasoning, Olimpia was required to report the investment in Olivetti under the equity method whilst Olivetti needed to consolidate Telecom Italia fully. Nonetheless, a close inspection of Pirelli Consolidated accounts for the year 2001 revealed that the Chairman of Pirelli at the time was also the Chairman of Olimpia, the Deputy Chairman and Managing Director of Olivetti and the Chairman of Telecom Italia. Moreover, the Deputy Chairman of Olimpia was also the Deputy Chairman of Olivetti and the Deputy Chairman of Telecom Italia. With this information in hand, can we still defend why we should not fully consolidate Telecom Italia’s financial statements into Pirelli’s accounts? A principles-based approach would draw on the notion of control as the dominating principle. This is the notion adopted in IAS 27, which would consider Telecom Italia as a subsidiary of Pirelli and consequently would call for full consolidation. However, the only way to reach this conclusion and correctly apply IAS 27 is by......

Sweeney Todd

...great diction, especially when singing the faster songs in the musical. The Beggar Woman was an interesting character because she ended up being Sweeney Todd’s wife. Ironically, Sweeney Todd, not knowing she is his wife, kills the Beggar Woman. To me her role was somewhat important because her death led to the death of Ms. Lovett. Another seemingly small character role was Pirelli. Pirelli was stuck up and his challenge led to Sweeney Todd’s decision on how to get revenge for Judge Turpin treating his daughter badly. Pirelli is the first of Sweeney Todd’s unsuspecting victims. Maybe if Pirelli was not so cheap he would not have taken the “free” shave of death from Sweeney Todd. A shave from Sweeney Todd cost him something more than any sum of money could buy, his life. At first I thought that Tobias “Toby” Ragg was not that important to the story of Sweeney Todd. I was also surprised to learn that he was probably no older than twelve or thirteen. Going into the musical, I thought that Tobias Ragg was a young man somewhere in his late teens or early twenties. Tobias Ragg worked for Pirelli and is unaware, in the beginning, that Sweeney Todd has killed his master. Without someone to work for, Toby begins to work in the pie shop with Ms. Lovett. He begins to love Ms. Lovett like a son loves his mother. Travis Anderson, the actor playing Tobias Ragg, did very well at transitioning through the emotionally states that Toby experienced throughout the musical. Toby......

...then to a marketing manager and finally a marketing director (prospect4u). I think that this would sustain a long term career for me as I already have done some work for Manor House Tearooms by creating their menu and advertising for events. In the table below (getin2marketing) it shows the jobs in marketing and what the approximate salary for each job is. HR My final career choice that I am going to write about is HR. The employment trends for HR according to ‘The Robert Walters European Jobs Index has shown a 15% increase in advertised HR vacancies since the final quarter of last year.’(robertwalters). On the Pirelli website they have a diagram showing the progression route for HR. The graph starts at a human resource specialist or labour relations specialist, then each of them take different routes to become a group human resources director (Pirelli). ‘HR assistant administrators can earn around £15,000 to £19,000 a year. Salaries for human resources officers can be between £18,000 and £25,000 a year. HR managers can earn between £25,000 and £50,000 a year or more.’ (nationalcareersservice). Conclusion To conclude all three career choices have shown a rise in the amount of jobs available this year even throughout the economic crises. For my first choice accounting they have seen an increase of jobs by 7%. The amount that I could earn from accounting career ranges from £19,000 - £30,000 per annum depending what stage of the career I am at. For my second choice......

Michelin Case

...have sufficiently distinct features from other markets which are considered not to exercise a competitive constraint on the French market. The industry The industry for new tyres is quite concentrated both in the world and in the EU, the first six producers accounting for around 75-85% of the markets. There are different leaders in different markets: at the world level (according to 1997 data referring to all types of tyres) Michelin and Bridgestone share the leadership with 18-20% of the market, followed by Goodyear (15%), Continental (8%), Sumitomo/Dunlop (6%), and Pirelli (5%). 10 In Europe, however (1995 data for all tyres) the leader is Michelin with 31% of the market, followed by Continental (17%),Goodyear (13%), Pirelli (9%), Bridgestone (8%), Sumitomo (8%). The relative competitive positions of the firms change further when different EU countries are considered, Michelin being stronger in France, Pirelli in Italy and so on. ‘Third-line brands’ are low quality tyres – often ‘white brands’ - produced in low-cost countries but sometimes also by major manufacturers. They still have a limited penetration at the time of the Decision. 9 The Commission still defines the relevant markets by looking at price similarities, physical features of the products and so on. For a critique to this approach, see e.g. Motta (2004: chapter 3). 10 Goodyear and Sumitomo merged in 1999, but the period of the infringement considered here was 1991 to 1998 included. 8 4 Public......

Executive Summary The following report is a comparison and analysis of Foy and Pirelli’s old and new management. The case talks about an employee Ashley who was dissatisfied with her job as she was not even enough responsibility and thus, couldn’t work to her full potential. But after her new boss Mike took over there was a cultural revolution in the company.
