Evaluation of HeadGear, Inc.
HeadGear, Inc is a small manufacturer of headphones for use in commercial and personal applications. In recent times, the demand for headphones has grown steadily; however, the company’s profits have grown at a slower rate. John Hurley, the chief executive officer (CEO), is concerned about the falling productivity and increasing costs. John is aware that if the profits continue to decline, the result can negatively affect the stock price of the company. A decline in stock prices will hinder the firm's ability to raise new investment capital, which is essential in the growth of the company. John made the decision to bring in a new chief operating officer (COO) with the objective of improving profitability very quickly. John incentivized the new COO with a 10% bonus if he attains the goal of profit improvement.
The following is the income statement for HeadGear for the period ending 2002.
