#30 is incorrect I will not be purchasing this answer
Expert:  SK replied 5 years ago.

My reason for aswering B for question 30 is following

 

The firm is expecting a higher return due to using the short term loan to allow them to purchase more from a supplier at a lower cost. Once the product is sold at the regular price and the revenue comes in the loan can be paid off and the firm wil have a higher cash in flow.

 

 

AGGRESSIVE PLAN

(SHORT TERM FINANCING/LOW LIQUIDITY)

 

If you adopt a financing plan which uses short term funds, and your asset liquidity is low then it is an aggressive and risky approach for the following reasons:

 

1. Profit factor - There is a possibility of high profits because your assets are less liquid and therefore well invested in the business.

 

2. Profit factor - You are using short term financing and hence the interest costs could be low resulting in lesser interest expense thereby helping profits.

 

3. Risk Factor - Since the financing is short term there is every possibility that the interest rates could go up resulting in a higher interest expense when the finances need to be renewed or the lender may refuse to renew.

 

4. Risk Factor - Since the assets are less liquid there may not be enough cash to meet short term obligations.
