Recommendation of Acquisition Target
SGH Warszawa Winter 2012
An example of the Motorola Solutions
In the following three pages I will give main reasons for investing into this company. I’m going to use key figures presented the book Financial Management – Principles and Applications (10th Edition) by Arthur J. Kewon et al. referring to chapters 1 – 10. I’m going to focus on the analyzing part of key elements of the balance sheet.

My recommendations: This Company is up to date provider and developer of high-end electronic services with growing potential. Hold the shares in the company as it’s rising and developing fast! BUY!
