Customer Question

I would need this by Tuesday at 3 pm. I will supply the necessary information from simulation once a tutor accepts and the paper can be any length in words as long as it covers the point. Just can't exceed 1400. Review the following scenario: Acting as
the CEO of a small company, you will apply the principles of capital budgeting to invest in growth and cash flow improvement opportunities in three phases over 10 simulated years. Each opportunity has a unique financial profile and you must analyze the effects
on working capital. Examples of opportunities include taking on new customers, capitalizing on supplier discounts, and reducing inventory. You must understand how the income statement, balance sheet, and statement of cash flows are interconnected and be able
to analyze forecasted financial information to consider possible effects of each opportunity on the firm's financial position. The company operates on thin margins with a constrained cash position and limited available credit. You must optimize use of internal
and external credit as you balance the desire for growth with the need for maintaining liquidity. Sign-in to the simulation and review each of the following: •Welcome Statement •How to Play •Terminology Primer •More Details. Write a paper that analyzes your
decisions during each phase (1-3) and how they influenced each of the following final outcomes (metrics) of SNC: •Sales •EBIT •Net Income •Free Cash Flow •Total Firm Value Address the following in your paper: •A summary of your decisions and why you made them
•How they affected SNC's working capital •What general effects are associated with limited access to financing Include scholarly references to support your positions. Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines.

As the assignment involves both calculation and descriptive in nature therefore I am sending you the offer, please accept it and provide data so the answer may be provided by or before your deadline, thanks.

I really can't afford the extra Q&A this week. I did not recall seeing where calculations had to be done per the instructions unless I missed something. From what I saw it is just a paper that has to discuss the bullet points in instructions.

Do you still want me to send the data?
Expert:  Jawaad Ahmed replied 1 year ago.

It is better that you first send the data as it seems that 10 years of data has to be analyzed, thanks.

When I copy paste the information it does not paste as it appears in proper form. And I don't see an option to download the information from the website.
Expert:  Jawaad Ahmed replied 1 year ago.

You can upload it at www.mediafire.com or www.wikisend.com and provide me the link, thanks.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I attached as word document. There was also a section on the Cash cycle, cash conversion cycle in the simulation. Do you think you will need this. It was hard for me to copy this but if you need this information to complete let me know and I will get it to you.
Expert:  Jawaad Ahmed replied 1 year ago.
For capital budgeting decision, the cash flow, the discount rate, the amount of investment to be made, all this things to be calculated, in the data these date is not given, therefore they need to be calculated with the combination of available and application of some assumptions, thanks.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I attached the information let me know if there are any issues. Also from what our instructor told us there should not be anything that we should have to calculated for this project. He said that the simulation should do all this and provide the information to be analyzed for the paper through each phase.
