Objectives
This report seeks to answer the following three questions about the Boeing 7E7 project: 1. What is an appropriate required rate of return against which to evaluate the prospective IRRs from the Boeing 7E7? a. Please use the capital asset pricing model to estimate the cost of equity. b. Which equity market risk premium (EMRP) did you use? Why? c. What Beta did you use and how did you derive it? d. Which risk-free rate did you use? Why? e. Which capital-structure weights did you use? Why? 2. Judged against your WACC, how attractive is the Boeing 7E7 project? f. Under what circumstances is the project economically attractive? g. What does sensitivity analysis (your own and/or that shown in the case) reveal about the nature of Boeing’s gamble on the 7E7? 3. Should the board approve the 7E7?
Management Summary
The analysis identifies both risks and benefits associated with undertaking the 7E7 project. Giving a calculated WAAC of 15.44% for the commercial division of Boeing, the project is feasible and profitable. As you will find, the financial calculations provided in this report show that the project will increase the wealth of the shareholders, also identifying the associated risks and how those could be minimized. Assuming the development costs are correctly estimated and the market response is properly gauged, the reasons to go forward with the project outweigh

    This means that Walmart has financed more than half of its assets with debt. This is a high ratio, thus Walmart’s degree or indebtedness as well as its financial leverage is greater. Another debt ratio is the Times interest earned ratio which is earnings before interest and taxes / interest. The times interest earned ratio for Wal-Mart is $18,435,000 / $1,900,000 = 9.7. This looks good for Wal-Mart because a times interest earned ratio of 3 is decent and 5 is good.…

    Airbus Case Analysis

    1. Reasons that Airbus interested in A3XX  A Revolution Adventure -- The first objective of this project is to fill the market gap by introducing a new type of aircraft. Airbus, with A3XX under the plan, is stepping into an area that Boeing has rarely touched, the very large aircraft (VLA) market. If Airbus well forecasts the future market, A3XX will be the flagship in a new airline revolution. Capturing more than half the VLA market with A3XX, Airbus would constitute an enormous financial success and achieve the ultimate objective-- the leader of commercial aviation industry.  Abundant Financial Resources and Developed Technologies -- Airbus possesses abundant funding resources and cutting-edge technologies which could substantially reduce the training cost. Airbus was prepared to receive around $4 billion development loans from the British, French, German and Spanish governments, repayable from sales revenue. Together with contributions from risk-sharing partners and its own shareholders, Airbus has no need to worry about its financial resources and thus can concentrate on the production and sale of A3XX. In addition, the well-developed aircraft technologies such as fly-by-wire technology, fight deck design, and performance characteristics that are common across the Airbus family pave the way for the A3XX’s development and potential market.  Favorable factors from Context Analysis -- Needs for travelling and cargo transportation are essential parameters which airlines have to take into consideration; hence, they are also vital determinants of demand for commercial aircrafts. According to Airbus’s Global Market Forecast (GMF), air transportation industry is expected to grow at 4.9% annually. This continuous growth demand of the flight market can offer Airbus Company a sound support to launch new types of planes. In…

    Despite the prior success of SWA, the company potentially faces an internal threat to its continuing success. Having lost their CEO, Herb Kelleher, SWA is in a similar position as Apple. Kelleher has played a vital role in building SWA, through his interpersonal skills and sharp business acumen. Given the competitive nature of this industry, without the strategic leadership and direction of Kelleher, SWA faces numerous challenges and critical decisions that could impact its future success. One of the challenges that Southwest may face relates to its investment in the B737s. While this investment was initially a competitive advantage for southwest, it could potentially work against SWA in the future. The continued rising cost of oil has prompted new technological changes in the airline industry. Additionally, the introduction of smaller and faster regional jets could give new entrants or existing carriers a technological advantage over SWA given that SWA is currently locked into more outdated technology.…
