Corporate and Global Finance 1

Assignment 2: Required Assignment 1—Financial Position Analysis

In this assignment, you will write a paper in which you will analyze an income statement, identify risks, and identify funding choices for a business that is expanding globally.

Scenario:

Your employer, Getting Bigger All The Time, Inc. (GBATT), a multinational corporation headquartered in the United States of America, is looking to expand operations into Brazil. GBATT manufacturers a variety of materials used in the residential and commercial building industries. The Brazilian economy has continued to expand, even in the current global economic downturn, and sales of GBATT materials to Brazilian companies have greatly increased. GBATT is exploring the possibility of building a new manufacturing facility in Brazil, not only to meet the increasing Brazilian demand, but also in anticipation of increased demand in other South American and Latin American countries once the global recession is completely over.

The following is GBATT’s basic income statement for the last two years of operations.

      2. Compare centralized and decentralized denomination of debt and its effect on the debt issuance.
      3. Determine if a fixed or a floating debt rate should be used.
