Respond to the following scenario with your thoughts, ideas, and comments. Be substantive and clear, and use research to reinforce your ideas.
Mary Francis comes into your office later that morning.
â€œGood news! I think weâ€™ve got strong potential investors!â€ Mary announces.
â€œThatâ€™s great!â€ you reply.
â€œAnd now, they are asking for financial informationâ€ Mary states.
â€œOk, I could provide a 50-page analysis for them!â€ you say.
â€œThatâ€™s exactly what they donâ€™t want. Iâ€™m beginning to notice that some of the investors donâ€™t have a strong finance background, and the last thing we want to do is scare them off with too many financial figuresâ€ Mary explains. I would like for you to complete a presentation. However, I want you to keep it simple and clear. Using all 3 Financial Statements, please provide an analysis on Apixâ€™s assets, liabilities, cash, and profit. As well, choose 2 additional components on each of the sheets, and provide your initial impression on the company financial situation. Do you think you could handle this?â€
â€œOf course! Iâ€™ll get started on this right away.â€
Mary also indicates that she would like between 10â€“15 slides with 150â€“200 words in the notes page.
