Case 1-1

...When the implied value exceeds the aggregate fair values of identifiable net assets, the residual difference is accounted for as goodwill. Long-term debt and other obligations of an acquired company should be valued for consolidation purposes at their fair value. On January 1, 2010, Lester Company purchased 70% of Stork Corporation's $5 par common stock for $600,000. The book value of Stork net assets was $640,000 at that time. The fair value of Stork's identifiable net assets were the same as their book value except for equipment that was $40,000 in excess of the book value. In the January 1, 2010, consolidated balance sheet, goodwill would be reported at $177,143. When the value implied by the purchase price of a subsidiary is in excess of the fair value of identifiable net assets, the workpaper entry to allocate the difference between implied and book value includes a 1. debit to Difference Between Implied and Book Value. 2. credit to Excess of Implied over Fair Value. 3. credit to Difference Between Implied and Book Value. c. 3 If the fair value of the subsidiary's identifiable net assets exceeds both the book value and the value implied by the purchase price, the workpaper entry to eliminate the investment account debits Difference Between Implied and Book Value. The entry to amortize the amount of difference between implied and book value allocated to an unspecified intangible is recorded 1. on the subsidiary's...

...1. Relate how Windows Server 2008 R2 Active Directory and the configuration of access controls achieve C-I-A fir departmental LANs, departmental folders, and data. Create security principals in the Active Directory domain partition. 2. Is it a good practice to include the account or user name in the password? Why or why not? It’s not a good idea to have a user name in the password, because it makes it easier for people to hack or decode the password. 3. In order to enhance the strength of user passwords, what are some of the best practices to implement for user password definitions in order to maximize confidentiality? Make your passwords at least eight characters long. Have the password containpunctuations, symbols, and numbers. Also, change them every 6 months or so. 4. Can a user defined in Active Directory access a shared drive if that user is not part of the domain? Clients can’t access shared folders. 5. Does Windows Server 2008 R2 require a user’s login/password credentials to accessing shared drives? Yes. 6. When looking at the AD structure for User and Computer, which group has the least amount of implied privileges? User 7. When granting access to LAN systems for GUESTS, what security controls do you recommend be implemented in order to maximize C-I-A of production systems and data?

...1. Ken 7 will create the users in the shop floor group folder in active directory users and computers. This way you know everything that relates to shop floor will be in the shop floor folder. 2. Password changes require very special semantics that are enforced by the server, and developers need to understand these semantics for password management applications to be successful. In order to try to facilitate the password management process, ADSI exposes two methods on the IADsUser interface: SetPassword and ChangePassword. SetPassword is used to perform an administrative reset of a user’s password and is typically performed by an administrator. Knowledge of the previous password is not required. ChangePassword is used simply to change the password from one value to another and is typically performed only by the user represented by the directory object. It does require knowledge of the previous password, and thus it takes the old and new passwords as arguments. 3. You need to create a new Active Directory domain and Create new user accounts for all users. Then you need to manually join these computers to the AD domain. Or you can script it using Netdom command. When you join computers to AD domain, users will get a new profile. If you are using Windows XP, you can use moveuser.exe to preserver these user profile. 4.

...Memo To: CEO of Company G From: Date: 12/29/2012 Re: Firms Financial Condition A comparison using a horizontal analysis of both the balance sheets and income statements from year 2011 and year 2012 has been completed along with a review of ratios and company trends to provide you with the financial condition of your home centers. After a careful review of the analysis, ratios and trends within the industry the outcome has been determined as followed: The Current Ratio measures a company’s ability to pay its short-term obligation with current assets. In year 12 company G has a current ratio of 1.79. This ratio has declined from last year of 1.86. When compared to the industry quartiles this ratio falls below the first quartile of 3.1 and below the second quartile of 2.1. This would indicate a weakness for the company. This determines the ability you have to pay back your short term liabilities. Monitoring this area to provide improvement is recommended. Sometimes called the quick ratio, this ratio measures a company’s ability to pay its short-term liabilities if they were to come due immediately without selling inventory. In year 12 Company G has a ratio of .43. When compared to last year this ratio has declined from .64. When compared to the industry quartiles this ratio falls below the first quartile of 1.6, above the second quartile of 0.9, and above the third quartile of 0.6. This would indicate a weakness for the company. The inventory turnover measures the...

...Cite three examples of recent decisions that you made in which you weighed marginal cost and marginal benefit. The economic perspective focuses largely on marginal analysis—comparisons of marginal benefits and marginal costs. To economists, “marginal” means “extra,” “additional,” or “a change in.” Most choices or decisions involve changes in the status quo, meaning the existing state of affairs. For instance, should you attend school for another year? Should you study an extra hour for an exam? Should you supersize your fries? Similarly, should a business expand or reduce its output? Should government increase or decrease its funding for a missile defense system (Brue & McConnell, 2010)? Each option involves marginal benefits and, be- cause of scarce resources, marginal costs. In making choices rationally, the decision maker must compare those two amounts. Example: You and your fiancée are shopping for an engagement ring. Should you buy a 1/2-carat diamond, a 5/8-carat diamond, a 3/4-carat diamond, a 1-carat diamond, or something even larger? The marginal cost of a larger-size diamond is the added expense beyond the cost of the smaller-size diamond. The marginal benefit is the perceived greater lifetime pleasure (utility) from the larger-size stone. If the marginal benefit of the larger diamond exceeds its marginal cost (and you can afford it), buy the larger stone. But if the marginal cost is more than the marginal benefit, buy the smaller diamond instead, even if...

Egt 1 Task 1

...EGT 1 Task 1 A. 1. The profit maximization approach used when total revenue and total cost are compared is the largest positive gap or profit gained between total revenue less total cost. In the table provided the largest profit or profit maximization would be $540. When you produce 8 items profit is at its highest point. To calculate total revenue you take the price times the quantity and to calculate total cost you take the sum of variable and fixed costs. 2. The profit maximization approach used when marginal revenue and marginal cost are compared is to take the marginal revenue less the marginal cost. In this process you look at how each additional unit affects total revenue and total cost. Marginal revenue is equal to the change of total revenue divided by change in quantity and Marginal cost is equal to the change in total cost divided by change in quantity. Once marginal cost exceeds marginal revenue it is not effective to produce the product and there is no longer a profit maximization. The profit maximization approach when using marginal revenue and marginal cost is to make as many products as you can until marginal cost equals marginal revenue. B. 1. Marginal revenue it the change in total revenue divided by the change in quantity. To get total revenue so that you can calculate marginal revenue you need to take the price times quantity less total cost. Marginal revenue becomes elastic and stays constant when there is perfect competition. But marginal revenue...

...Running Head: Children's Literature Task 1 1 Children;s Literature Task 1 Arthur Carroll Western Governor's University Children's Literature Task 1 2 Children's Literature Task 1 It is well known that the world is filled to the brim with a rich history in athletics, education, science, politics, and the arts. What is not common knowledge is the history and richness of children's literature and how it eventually became what it is today. Just like most things, what we now know as children's literature is nothing like what it was originally, it has transformed into something else entirely. Nonetheless, it has as colorful a history as it does some of it's own books. Before children's literature was ever even written down it was given to children in a less tangible way; orally. Prior to publishers like Scholastic and Golden Books existence, the technology to write books was long and tedious, especially if the author was trying to make many copies. So instead, children's literature was told out loud where many could hear it at once and the time factor for preparation was at a minimum. Once authors had better technology to help simplify the process of physical writing, oral literature transformed into written literature. It wasn't always computers or even typewriters though, written used to literally mean written. Like the transformation from mouth to pen, pen evolved to...

...Memo To | CEO, Company G | From: | Chelsea R Schulz | | | Date: | November 28, 2014 | Re: | Company G Financial Analysis | | | After reviewing the income statements for years 2012 and 2011 for Company G, I have compared the pertinent industry data alongside these statements to interpret the company’s current financial condition. Please review the information below: 1. Current Ratio: Company G’s current ratio is 1.79, this is determined by dividing the company’s current assets by its current liabilities to measure its ability to pay short-term liabilities. The company’s current ratio is considered a weakness as it falls in the low end ratio of the given industry data for comparable companies during this quartile which is 0.6. 2. Acid-Test Ratio: The Company’s acid-test ratio was calculated and resulted in a ratio of 0.43, which is a significant decrease from 2011’s ratio of 0.64. This ratio is a weakness for company G as the ratio of 0.43 falls below the low end ratio of the given industry data from comparable companies during this quartile. The acid-test ratio is calculated by adding the company’s cash, plus, short term investments and net current receivables and dividing the result by the company’s total current liabilities. This ratio shows if a company and pay all of its current liabilities if they were to come due immediately. Since the ratio of Company G is below 1, this is considered a weakness for the company and the management team...

According to the text, “supply chain management is the theory of comparative advantage applied at the company level. It is the design and management of seamless, value-added processes across organizational boundaries to meet the real needs of the end customer.” I would communicate the ideas expressed in the above definition by following the internal value chain in such a way the author describes in the text: • Executive management- “defines company strategy and allocated resources to achieve it.” • R&D- “responsible for new product design.” • Supply management- Coordinates the upstream supply base, finding the right suppliers and building the right relationships with them.” • Operations- “transforms the inputs acquired from suppliers into more highly valued products.” • Logistics- “moves and stores materials so they are available when and where they are needed.” • Marketing- “manages the downstream relationships with customers, identifying their needs and communicating to them how the company can meet those needs.” • Human resources- “designs the systems used to hire, train, and develop the company’s employees.” • Accounting- “maintains business records that provide information needed to control operations.” • Finance- “acquires and controls the capital required to operate the business.” • Information technology...

Let 1 Paper 1

...10/11/2011 Let 1 Task 1 One of the most accepted theories on motivation comes from Victor Vroom, and most of the studies done on it are supportive of his theory. That’s not so say there aren’t any critics of it. There are three key components to the Expectancy Theory of Motivation by Victor Vroom: Effort Performance, Performance-Reward, and Rewards-Personal Goals. The relationship of these three key concepts can be more difficult to define based on personal experience and individual situations. However, they are simply arguments that sate that individuals will be willing to exert a high level of input if they perceive that they will get a reward that is equal to or greater than that high level of input. The first component of this theory is Effort-Performance. According to Vroom this means that the perceived amount of effort that an individual puts into something will lead to a particular level of performance. However, the level of perceived performance that one individual sees will not be the same as another individual sees. The next component of the Expectancy Theory of Motivation is the Performance-Reward relationship. This concept examines the belief that achieving the perceived level of performance will earn a desired outcome, and that the outcome will be favorable. This may come in the form of a raise, a bonus, or even a promotion, as long as the individual finds it favorable. The final component of Vroom’s theory is the Reward-Personal Goals relationship...
