Dollar Tree Annual Report 2011 The company that I chose to report on is a Fortune 500 company called Dollar Tree. They are known for their $1 price-point variety stores. They are headquartered in Chesapeake, Virginia and operate over 4,300 stores over the 48 contiguous United States and five Canadian Provinces (Dollar Tree annual report, 2011). The main sections of the annual report to me would be: * Net sales which are the gross sales minus returns, discounts, and allowances were $6.6 billion in 2011 that compared to $5.9 billion for 2010 which showed an overall increase in sales. * Gross profit which is sales minus all costs directly associated with those sales. For 2011, Dollar tree reported their gross profit as $2.4 billion compared to 2010 with a gross profit of $2.1 billion. * Net income is also known as profit. Dollar Tree for 2011 had a bottom line profit after all expenses were deducted of $488.3 million. * Earnings per Share are what drive the value of stock. The market pays more attention to EPS than it does to anything else. The annual report showed EPS to be $4.03 for 2011 compared to $ 3.10 in 2010. * Return on shareholder’s equity (ROE) equals the company’s net income divided by shareholder’s equity and shows how well a company utilizes shareholder’s money. ROE was 34.8% for 2011 compared to 27.5% for 2010.

The key factors that affected the company’s performance for 2011 were expansion of stores, opening of new stores and relocating stores to more profitable locations. Dollar Tree bases its success on their focus on the customer. They aim for high value merchandise at a cheap price. They also give credit to their dedicated associates and the superior job they do.

The primary assets held by Dollar Tree are merchandise inventory followed by the next largest asset of property, plant and equipment. Cash and

    When Best Buy first opened it was an event that an electronics store could hold such a variety of products, have knowledgeable employees, and offer competitive prices at the same time. Although in 2012 it was reported that revenues for Best Buy increased, the company still fell victim to the problems of having a decrease in net income and operating cash flow. “The company reported revenues of (U.S. Dollars) USD 50,705.00 million during the fiscal year ended March 2012, an increase of 1.93% over 2011. The operating profit of the company was USD 1,085.00 million during the fiscal year 2012, a decrease of 54.30% from 2011. The net loss of the company was USD 1,231.00 million during the fiscal year 2012, as against a net profit of USD 1,277.00 million during 2011 (Strategic Analysis 1).” It is obvious by these numbers that Best Buy, a company that has been historically successful, has been running into some recent troubles. In this report I will identify all of the potential reasons for Best Buy’s recent poor performance, as well as offer my opinion for the primary reasons for Best Buy’s recent sub-par performance.…

    There are several initiatives Dollar Tree can continue to utilize as part of its strategy to distinguish itself in this discount retail industry. First, completely closing the current Family Dollar acquisition will set Dollar Tree out front as the leader in the industry, but several next steps will need to be taken in order for consumers and investors to view this as a successful venture. First, whether the organization intends to use the Family Dollar name or convert them to Dollar Tree stores will be a point of focus. Also, determining which of the over three hundred Dollar Tree stores the organization will need to close in order to meet United States regulatory approval of the acquisition will also be important. Assuring how both of these…

    Dollar General Corporation is a leader in the discount retail industry, but clearly could use new information systems to further establish its presence and dominate the industry. The ability of Dollar General to set up new stores quickly, at a low cost, and efficiently has enabled them to maximize their revenue, while keeping costs minimal. Dollar General is very dependent on the ability of the management they place in charge of each store opening, known as the setter, to coordinate the process and make sure the opening runs as smoothly as possible. The setter must be able to train the store manager to run the Dollar General store to the exact specifications presented by the upper management of the company. Dollar General does depend on some information systems to help open and establish its stores. They have contracts with companies, like IBM…
