Introduction of Due Diligence:
Due Diligence is a process of thorough and objective examination that is undertaken before corporate entities enter into major transactions such as mergers and acquisitions, issuing new stocks and other securities, project finance, securitization, etc. One of the key objectives of due diligence is to minimize, to the maximum extent practicable, the possibility of there being unknown liabilities or risks. The exercise is the multi-dimensional and involves investigation into the business, tax, financial, accounting and legal aspects of an issuer.

Definition of Due Diligence:
"Due diligence" is a term used for a number of concepts involving either an investigation of a business or person prior to signing a contract, or an act with a certain standard of care.

An examination aiming to make an acquisition decision via the principles of valuation and shareholder value analysis. * DUE DILIGENCE IN INDIA: The practice of undertaking a formal due diligence investigation is of comparative recent origin in India and was mainly imported as a process by foreign investors/their legal and financial advisors after the econ nomic liberalization reforms of 1991. No statute defines the term ‘due diligence’. However, the SEBI mandates certain parties to undertake a due diligence, in the context of issuance of securities by a company. For instance: * Regulation 64 of Chapter VI of the ICDR Regulations, requires the BRLMs to exercise due diligence and satisfy themselves about all the aspects of the issue. The BRLM is also required to call upon the issuer, its promoters or in case of an offer for sale, the selling shareholders, to fulfill their obligations as disclosed by them in the offer document. * Regulation 65 requires the BRLM to submit post-issue reports to the SEBI. The BRLM is also required to submit a due diligence certificate as per the format specified in Form G of Schedule VI, along with thefinal post-issue report.(Regulation 65 (3)) * Under Regulation 83, a qualified institutions placement shall be managed by BRLM(s) registered...

...Socialism is an economic system where the means of production, such as money and other forms of capital, are owned by the state or public. Under a socialist system, everyone works for wealth that is, in turn, distributed to everyone. Under capitalism, you work for your own wealth. A socialist economic system operates on the premise that what is good for one is good for all. Everyone works for their own good and the good of everyone else. The government decides how wealth is distributed among the people. In a socialist economy, there is no market as such. The government provides for the people. The taxes are usually higher than in a capitalist system. There may be government-run health care and a complete system of government-operated education. It is a misconception that people do not pay for these services. They do pay for them through higher taxes. Socialist systems emphasize equal distribution of wealth among the people. The Pros of Capitalism and Socialism The pros and cons of capitalism versus socialism have been debated for hundreds of years and there is a lot of misinformation out there. Capitalism increases the opportunities in the marketplace for personal economic growth. It increases opportunities for entrepreneurs to increase their personal wealth and for societies to grow as well. Hard work is rewarded under a capitalist economy. In a capitalist economy, consumers can work toward riches and financial freedom. A competitive market results from capitalism and...

S Corp Distributions V. Compensation

...Introduction S corporations are required to annually file Form 1120S, U.S. Income Tax Return for an S Corporation, although they generally are not subject to federal income taxes. Instead, an S corporation passes its profits and net losses to the shareholders, who are required to report the items on their individual income tax returns. This distribution of the flow-through income, deductions, and other items are reported to the shareholder and the Internal Revenue Service on Form 1120S Schedule K-1, Shareholder’s Share of Income, Deductions, Credits, etc. S corporation is one of the fastest growing types of business entities and the most common type of corporate entity filing returns with the IRS. It also offers several attractive benefits to its shareholders. As pass-through tax entities means that profits are subject to tax at only one level.

In addition, S corporations have the legal capacity to flow through business losses, within limitations, to their shareholders which can be used to offset their taxable income from other sources, such as salaries and wages. FICA tax is imposed only with respect to employee wages and not on distributive share of shareholders. If shareholder-employees are not paid a “reasonable” wage for the services they perform for the S corporation, the IRS may re-categorize distributions paid for...

Jit Mc Donald Case

...JIT McDonalds: McDonalds is really a mini manufacturing plant, different work cells prepare various components there is an assembly area, there is a supply chain coupled with customer support. Everything is always ready to spring into action as soon as an order is placed. All the tomatoes have been sliced, all the lettuce has been shredded, all the mayonnaise is ready and waiting to be added as and when. So the whole philosophy is geared towards Just In Time and everything ready to go when the order is placed. Actually a manufacturing plant can learn a good deal from the McDonald’s philosophy. They will not have to worry about holding too much stock, especially stock that could soon become obsolete. Indeed McDonald’s is about efficiency without sacrificing quality, speed, again without sacrificing quality and finally it is about consistency. McDonald’s is keen to ensure that its employees are very much orientated towards the goals and aims of the company and it rewards employees who can achieve success and who can show that they are keen to develop initiatives and seek to improve existing practices and procedures, so long as these are in line with the company’s overall themes and goals. So they work with employees to get them thinking the ‘company way’ and this is seen as a way of improving efficiency. This type of approach could certainly save manufacturing plants a great deal of money. This is a lesson that could well be learned by manufacturing plants, because it...

S & D Petroleum Co., Inc. V. Tamsett

...In 1984 plaintiff engaged defendant, an attorney, to secure a debt of $19,747.56 owed plaintiff by one of its customers, C & H Trucking, Inc. (hereinafter C & H). Defendant prepared a security agreement naming C & H and Charles and Carolyn Waltz, two individuals involved in the trucking concern, as the debtors and giving plaintiff a security interest in a 1984 Mack truck. Typed language, added to the preprinted form, provided that the debt with interest was payable as follows: "Cash on all oil deliveries plus $500.00 payment on account upon delivery of product to the debtor." This was followed by printed language in the form declaring that the collateral also secured "any other indebtedness or liability of the [d]ebtor to the [s]ecured [p]arty direct or indirect, absolute or contingent, due or to become due, now existing or hereafter arising, including all future advances or loans which may be made at the option of the [s]ecured [p]arty". The security agreement was executed but defendant failed to perfect it by filing (see, UCC 9-302 [1]). C & H subsequently paid off the debt and for a time had a credit balance with plaintiff. However, by March 1986 when plaintiff learned that the debtors were insolvent, that the Mack truck had been sold and that the debt was unsecured, the outstanding balance due from C & H exceeded $17,000. Although the Waltzes appear to be effectively judgment-proof, defendant has proceeded on plaintiff's behalf against a third individual associated with...

Paper Based Books V/S E-Books

...PAPER BASED BOOKS V/S E-BOOKS Reading is a way through which languages are acquired. It helps in communicating as well as sharing one’s views on a particular subject. But, the main question here is, what means should be used to read? There are two school of thoughts; the first favors paper based books, while the other favors e-books. The first school of thought favors reading paper based books. Firstly, it says that reading paper based books is more superior to screens. Secondly, books are single tasking devices. While reading a paper based book, the reader can do little of another task; there is little distraction. It is possible to buy a used book, but not a used e-book. A real book can be resold. Thus, real books are better than e-books. The second school of thoughts favors reading e-books. First of all, e-books feature of portability has been a major hit. It is possible to carry an entire library of e-books everywhere, without worrying about weight. E-books are long lasting; and withstand time over paper based books. Lastly, e-books are bought and delivered online; there are no shipping charges. Hence, e-books are better than paper based books. In my opinion, e-books are more convenient than paper books. Firstly, it is eco-friendly, as no cutting down of trees is required to make papers. Next, e-books are a means of interactive learning, as it may contain audios/videos and animation. Lastly, e-books can be printed. Thus, a reader has an option of reading books on the......

... find a new way using the 4Ps from the marketing strategies to allow them to stand out from their competitors. In India for Mc Donald to stand out from the competitors, they had an innovative idea which is Mc delivery. So for them to have a higher sales revenue they decide to introduce home delivery of their products to the homes of their customers which was an innovative strategy. The United States on the other hand, in contrast to India doesn’t need to have innovative marketing strategies since they are already a very well established franchise in the market. They also have a wider range of product since in the United States a huge proportion of the population eat beef or pork which attracts more customers. The price of Mc Donald product would also be influenced by cultures in the differing countries. The United States is considered a MEDC that is relatively economically stable, compared to parts of India which may still be seen as developing. Due to the United States’ high quality of life, many people eat at restaurants/ fast foods as it has become a lifestyle for them. Mc Donald’s burger is seen as something very common in the United States as many people that work go there for lunch. This allows them to set relatively high prices as they have a high demand for their product. India on the other has many other competitors such as KFC, Subway, and Baskin-Robbin etc. Therefore there is a lower demand for their products in India. So for them to be able to compete with the......
