This topic is a presentation of what is required to complete both parts 3 & 4 of Corporate America project. Ask any general questions about this process by replying to the demonstration thread & response that I post within this topic.
Do not include my text as a part of any response that you provide. It is very cumbersome to read all that text just to ask a question of clarification.
Grades for parts 3 & 4 will be posted using the same method I used for Part 2. However, I will attach in the student assignment folder my written feedback in link called “student workbook.”
Be sure that you read all of the following instructions before you begin any of your work.
Part 3 (due December 11th) is the Corporate America reporting event. Each student must present three slides of exact information that they have discovered about their chosen company. See my demonstration for exact details.
Required Action: prepare & attach in one document, three slides (in landscape format), either in PowerPoint or as an Adobe Acrobat PDF file. “Start a New Thread” and attach the completed presentation. The subject line & the file document must be the name of your company (abbreviated company name is acceptable) followed by your name.
Use only black & blue text font and a white background for the slides. Do not present any graphics of clip art of any type. Be sure that your presentation is a professionally prepared document. It must be able to be printed and readable as presentation slides. Small print, wide margins are therefore discouraged. Absolutely be brief with any written notes provided. Remember, you are part of a two-person team and teamwork is critical in any company. Present the following information (note, present only the required information, resist going off on a tangent): (Note: use my presentation example as a guide to how your slides should be formatted and look.)
Header (required on slide 1 only): “Corporation Name followed by Your Name”
Slides 1: Present, horizontally, the following ratios for the most current four years:
>> Profit Margin (Net Profit on Sales)
>> Gross Profit Margin
>> Current Ratio
>> Quick Ratio
>> Working Capital
>> Accounts Receivable Turnover
>> Accounts Receivable Days Outstanding
>> Inventory Turnover (ITO)
>> Days of Inventory = 365 days / ITO
>> Operating Cycle
Slides 2: Identify and provide a brief written review of one (and only one)significant financial event that is reflected in a significant change or trend exhibited by four year ratio trend presented in slide 1. Include any consolidated or brief footnote evidence/information that discusses/explains this significant event. Note: Be brief, you must use bullet format in your presentation. Ensure that all information is properly documented using in text citations. Caution, you are to provide your own analysis. Therefore, do not consult any online analysis that may have been written, about this financial event. This team, not the Wall Street Journal or outside online analytical gang is responsible for making their own observation to the senior partner.
Slide 3: The bibliographic information must be on the last of the three slides.
Note: For part 3, students must “Start a New Thread” to provide their company’s information. The subject line of that new thread must contain, “Company Name – by Student Name.” Where it says company name that is the name of the company that the student is selecting. Where it says student name that is the student’s name who is posting the new thread.
Note: All information presented must be discovered or calculated from the audited financial statements.
Note: Round all calculations to one decimal place.
Note that your url must be exact & it must be a direct link to the SEC Edgar system (not the company’s home page or some investopediat stuff.) Think of it, Mr. Warren Buffett does not have time to wander the internet to find a specific document so be exact and double check the information provided.
Note: All information presented that was found in the financial reports must be documented.
Use APA style and in addition, page number(s) must be presented for each in text citation.
oExcept for directly quoted material, page numbers are not mandatory in APA style but I am making them mandatory for credit in this presentation.
Present source document as a bibliography complete with the exact url that will directly lead the reader to the exact SEC 10K annual report.
oAdditionally, you must provide a date accessed.
oAgain APA does not mandate this for fixed website, I am making it mandatory for credit.
See my example demonstration thread.
Grading of part 3:
Timeliness and accuracy of information presented & the presentation, to include direct page references. Remember that presentation format is important. You are a member of a team, keep your presentation simple and clear. Do not clutter the information and keep the pages without graphics or color selections. The final product (combination of all slides provided by the team) is the responsibility of the manager’s staff assistant. Grade reduction will be based on the level of inaccurate material or direct page references as well as the presentation.
Source consulted (bibliography) with direct url link. Remember the source url must be a direct link to the SEC 10K annual report. The reviewer must not have to dig down into a company website to find the needed document.
Because this assignment involves other classmates reviewing presentations late presentations will not be accepted. In the real world of business, coworkers and employers do not accept tardy information in the boardrooms. Therefore, plan ahead, and be on time.
Part 4 (due December 14th) is the review process. Each student must review one other classmate’s (and only one classmate’s) presentation for accuracy. This review is the collaborative portion of the event. Again, see my demonstration for exact details.
Keep in mind; you are reviewing another classmate’s presentation. Be sure to conform to common courtesy. If there are errors, then state so, and document them accordingly. When there are no errors then present any notes and complement accordingly. Be sure to review again content Course Admin Notes & Policies – Module >> Course Ground Rules.
The subject line of the reviewer’s response (your review must be a response to your classmate’s thread) must read, “Company Name reviewed by Your Name.” Note: this means you must change the subject line when you respond to the classmate’s thread.
The following are the items that are to be addressed by the reviewer:
Correct page reference(s)
Direct link via the url provided by the presenter
Provide the calculations for “selected” ratios that were presented (Selected means that you should locate the ratios that are addressed by the presenter as having had a significant financial event. Then present your calculations to verify that these ratios were in fact correctly calculated.) Do not, under any circumstance present the calculations for all ratios presented. At most, I would expect to see only four ratio calculations out of the 40 values presented.
Remember that as the reviewer, you are using source material and must also document your source consulted.
Grading of part 4:
Timeliness and accuracy of the reviewed material and source information presented, to include direct page references.
Source consulted with direct url link. Remember the source url must be a direct link to the SEC 10K annual report.
Because this assignment involves other students reviewing presentations, late presentations will not be accepted. In the real world of business, coworkers and employers do not accept tardy information in the boardroom. Therefore, plan ahead and be on time.
General Instruction Notes:
To be fair to all who present on time: in order to review or reserve another classmate’s presentation for review, each student must first have presented their own part 3. Yes, you may reserve a classmate’s presentation for review by posting a reply stating your intent to review. However, keep in mind, all reviews & reservations are on an absolute first come first serve basis. Only those who have presented a part 3 may review or reserve for review another’s part 3 presentation.
