NCBJ

RECOMMENDATION & RATIONALE
RECOMMENDATION: BUY RATIONALE: The Company reported relatively flat earnings for the 3 months ended Dec 31. However, our outlook for NCBJ over the medium- to long-term is positive on the basis of an improving economy and ongoing structural changes at the Company, which could lower operating costs.

RECOMMENDATION: BUY RATIONALE: The majority of the Company's income is in US currency, which provides a good currency hedge for investors. The improving global economy should also provide tailwinds. The Company’s continuing expansion plans should continue to result in significant revenue and profit growth. The Company plans to expand into Turks and Caicos by October 2014.

RECOMMENDATION: BUY RATIONALE: The Company has expressed plans to continue its expansion of revenue generation outside of Jamaica into the US, Europe and Africa. This should bode well for the company in the medium- to long-term as it could expand revenue faster in these countries than in Jamaica.

RECOMMENDATION: BUY RATIONALE: The Company is more resistant to a tougher economic climate as demand for its products is more inelastic. We view the recent acquisitions, such as England Farms in Arkansas, as highly constructive to the long-term prospects as JBG’s revenue sources increase and it becomes less susceptible to the depreciation of the Jamaican dollar. RECOMMENDATION: BUY RATIONALE: Strong, solid company with an attractive dividend yield. The acquisition of RBC should bode well for the Group as it can increase the Company's market share in the commercial banking industry. The Company stands to realize synergies from the acquisition.

...1. Evolution of management accounting practices using IFAC model. As per IFAC (1998), there are four stages of evolution of management accounting. Prakash (2013) stated that the framework is provided to explain the developement of management accounting as to promote better understanding in changes in management accounting. Four stages of evolution of the focus of management accounting are shown in the figure 1 and describes as below. Stage 1 occurs prior to 1950 where most of the companies were focusing on cost determination related to stock valuation and the allocation of overheads. Among the accounting techniques that were developed for the cost estimation were Last In First Out (LIFO) and First In First Out (FIFO). Prakash (2013) stated that cost estimation was emphasized because by estimating the cost, managers were able to control their financial position. From 1965 to 1985, companies had moved into generating information for management planning and control. This is because only valuable information can be used to make correct decisions. This stage is using such technologies as decision analysis and responsibility accounting, to help managers choose the right decision oriented towards manufacturing and internal administration rather than strategic and environmental concerns. Management accounting, as part of the management control system tended to be reactive, identifying problems and actions only when deviations from the business plan took place [ (Abdel-Kader......

Management Accounting Development and Practices in Bangladesh

...Management accounting is not new in any sense of the world. The origins of modern management accounting can be traced to the emergence of managed, hierarchical enterprises in the early nineteenth century (Johnson and Kaplan, 1987) [2]. The Industrial Revolution in the early nineteenth century resulted in the emergence of a factory system that dramatically changed the production process (Ashton, D., Hopper, T. and Scapens, R.W. 1991) [3]. This has created a new demand for accounting information. Market information, which had automatically provided details of materials and piecework labor costs incurred in meeting each customer’s order, was no longer available. In particular, information was required to determine the cost of the internal operations and also to measure the efficiency of converting materials leading to the finished product (Parker, 2002) [4]. Johnson and Kaplan (1987) [2] suggest that, notwithstanding the impact of the Industrial Revolution, the emergence and rapid growth of railways in the mid-nineteenth century was the major driving force in the development of management accounting systems. New measures such as cost per ton-mile, cost per passenger mile and the ratio of operating expenses to revenues were created and reported on a segmental and regional basis. Many of the innovative management accounting measures developed by railway companies were subsequently absorbed and developed by the other business sectors. During the nineteenth century the development...

Cost Management

...article of a traditional cost management VS lean cost management by Mahanim Hanid, Lauri Koskela and Mohan Sinwardena, the term of cost management is not a well defined term. It’s built on both cost accounting and management accounting, but goes beyond these two terms (P. Agrawal and Mehra 1998). For Brinker (1996) defines it as a set of techniques and methods for controlling and improving a company’s activities and processes, its products and services. In addition, Maskel (2009) also described that the cost and management accounting is used internally to help the company’s manager control and improve the business. Although there is an accounting standards associated with these tasks, there is no legal requirement to perform these tasks in any particular way or to perform them at all. A company can do as much or as little cost and management accounting as it wishes and it can be done in any way it wants. Furthermore, cost accounting practices are seldom exactly similar in different companies (P. Agrawaland and Mehra 1998). According to text referred, cost management is equally important to all companies, regardless of size. Small companies generally have tighter monetary controls, mainly because of the risk with the failure of as little as one project, but with less sophisticated control techniques. Large companies may have the luxury to spread project losses over several project whereas the small company may have few projects. Cost management is not only “monitoring”......
