...SQUARE Have you heard about the new “Square”? As in, “Are we square?” It’s a new square-shaped gizmo that gives people a way to accept credit card payments on their iPhone, iPad, or Android. It was invented by Jack Dorsey, the founder of Twitter, a guy who knows something about new ideas that catch on with people carrying cell phones. Prior to this, really only business owners could accept credit card payments. A standard credit card machine costs several hundred dollars, and credit card processing companies charge set-up fees and monthly fees (whether you make any charges or not), as well as high per-transaction fees to boot. That’s why ordinary folks don’t own a credit card machine. According to its Web site, the small Square device is free and plugs into the earphone jack, the downloadable app for it is free, there are no set-up or monthly fees, and the per-transaction costs are much lower. It’s secure, it E-mails the receipts, and it keeps track of all your cash and credit card transactions for you.  The New York Times calls the idea “beautiful, simple, and a joy to use.” Add to that “disruptive, brilliant, and irresistible.” Disruptive? You bet. Not only is every kid with a lemonade stand--and every Tupperware lady and every cab driver and plumber--now going to be able to take credit and debit cards, big companies like department stores and chain restaurants would be crazy not to switch for the lower fees and free equipment. The credit card companies are not going...

... blown production. Although the company guidance was for production to start before 2010, it has been delayed. We expect these two to start production properly in 2011 and add to consolidated revenue. SPL management seems to be hoping that it will eventually be able to list its subsidiaries. Square Square Textiles, an associate of Square Pharma and a former subsidiary, is now a listed company. Investment in Square Textiles was BDT 183 million on a cost basis and current market value of this investment is more than BDT 12 billion. SPL expects that in time it will be able to list its current subsidiaries in the capital market, allowing it to monetize its investment. The company’s operating cash flow is higher than its total capital expenditure, which includes expansion and maintenance. Therefore we assume major portion of investing activity to be financed internally. This results in a very low debt to equity ratio. Existing subsidiaries may present excellent capital gain opportunity 8 Square Pharmaceuticals (DSE: SQURPHARMA; Bloomberg: SQUARE:BD) Valuation Since Square Pharmaceuticals is involved in a number of subsidiaries and associate companies, a Sum-of-the-Parts (SOTP) valuation appears to be more relevant. We derive value per share for each of these companies using various valuation methodologies depending on the type of business and its relationship with the parent company. We use DCF valuation for Square Pharmaceutical’s standalone business as well as Square...

... Davida Franklin SCMS 3711 M50 M.Cervetti XYZ Critical Thinking Project Part 1- Framing the Project Portfolio Management Problem 1. What are the objectives? The objective is to research and develop pharmaceuticals products based on the selections that minimize cost and maximize value and sales. There will be a discussion of which projects will be allocated additional resources and at what cost. 2. What are the constraints? Competition is usually between brand-name drugs. Constraints for the study include risky drug discovery and development which could cause harm to participants and also waste money used on development. Other restrictions include the amount of time spent on Research and Development which leads to increased costs. There is also the concern with low return on investments and the emergence of generic drugs and competitors. 3. What are the risks involved? There are both technical and commercial risks involved. The most risky aspect of the project is within the research and development process. Drug discovery and development is extremely risky, time-consuming, and expensive. Millions of dollars are spent in the R& D process and many of the drugs created do not make it past the Basic Research stage. The risks associated with low return on investment or no return at all on the investment pose a big risk for pharmaceutical companies. 4. What are your alternatives? The company can choose to allocate resources to other projects or services besides......
