Description
Course notes: MGT338H Class 1 Let us suppose that the goal of the firm (a corporation) is to maximize shareholder value. In order to operate, the firm will need to employ some assets. The question becomes: which assets should the firm use? Should it build or buy the assets it needs to compete and win? Finance and accounting are used, in part, to determine whether projected corporate strategy moves are wise and to measure the results to see if they succeeded. Suppose a firm is considering 4 different projects which it may implement in the coming year. These may be to: launch a new product expand existing operations buy some assets buy another company, etc. What factors should the management team consider when deciding which, if any, of these projects to accept? Answer: Suppose the firm can invest $1,000,000 today, in return for $300,000year at the end of each year for the next 5 years. Is that an attractive investment? 1 www.notesolution.com
