TESCA CASE STUDY

SUMMARY RESULTS AND RECOMMENDATIONS The proposed refrigerator manufacturing and sales project for Tesca Works, Inc. is a financially complicated project which on the surface, given the increase in energy costs and customer demand may seem like a winning proposition. However, when we delve further into the details of the financial projections along with projections of the future of the refrigerator market we are able to make a confident recommendation to Mr. Burton and the executive staff at Tesca Works, Inc. Using the information provided by the Tesca team we were able to create a comprehensive capital budget and cash flow analysis for the proposed refrigerator project. Through our analysis we found that the cost of capital of the project to be 13.487% and a Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC) to be at a value of 9.70%. Factoring in the WACC into our projections we found that if the demand maintains at an average rate the project will be at a positive Net Present Value of $5,997,505.31 with an IRR of 13.21%, a profitability index of 8.84, and an approximate payback period of 6.84 years. Please see Exhibits below for a snapshot of the capital budget and NPV values. This information seemed to be very promising for the project in general. However, our continued analysis showed the project to be very sensitive to the sales price per unit of the refrigerator. We used the average demand scenario to produce a sensitivity analysis and found that with just a 5% decrease in the sales price of the refrigerator the NPV quickly dipped into a negative value thus showing the project to be extremely

    Founded in 1984 Laurentian Bakeries Inc. operates in the industry of manufacturing a vast variety of frozen baked products within their three operating plants in Montreal, Winnipeg and Toronto. The operating plants produce items such as frozen pizza in Winnipeg, MB, pies in Montreal, QC and Cakes in Toronto, ON- with each representing 30%, 30% and 40% of the total revenue stream respectively. The buyers for this company include large institutional clients such domino’s pizza, etc. which have a significantly higher level of power whereas the seller of the products consists of several food producers which have a relatively low level of power. With the cost of setting up a plant of this scale being high, substitute products will also remain high in the market causing the overall profit margin to be low. With the company’s ongoing effort for continuous improvement Danielle Knowles (VP of operations) proposed to expand one of the operating plants in Winnipeg-which was based on the opportunity if the company expanded into the U.S. market.…

    1) How much importance should be given to the energy cost situation? Michael Burton’s proposal to expand into new energy efficient products is justified by increasing interest in the public and private sectors to reduce energy costs. At the highest level of government, the Obama administration has tied the US economy’s energy policy with its future success and competitiveness with other global powers. In a speech on June 2009, President Obama specifically mentions the Energy Department’s plans to implement “…aggressive efficiency standards for common household appliances – like refrigerators and ovens – which will spark innovation, save consumers money, and reduce energy demand.”1 Sarah Max from Money magazine (2010) also mentions that there are over 100 state programs that offer additional incentives for home energy efficiency. She points out that there 6 times as many programs offered by utility companies as well.2 In all, home consumers are being highly incentivized through rebates and tax credits to make home energy improvements— including the purchase of energy efficient appliances. Presumably Tesca Work’s new product will meet the Energy Star standards established by the EPA and DOE. According to the Energy Star achievements report for 2010, American households purchased around 200 million Energy Star qualified products that year (3.5 billion since 2000).3 The energy cost situation is one that the Tesca Works cannot ignore in their product development and marketing strategies. 2) Forecast the project’s cash flows for the next twenty years. What assumptions did you use? This project’s cash flows are projected over twenty years based on three assumptions or scenarios for the product’s demand: Weak, Average, and Strong. Each scenario’s variables are outlined in the Table 1 below:…

    Mr. Asad Ali is the sole proprietor of Regal Electronics. Regal Electronics manufactures several products, one being dessert coolers. For several years, Ali has established his dessert cooler brand to be a high quality product in the mid-level price range. In 1987, the government announced additional taxes that would drive up the price of dessert coolers (and other products). Ambassador, a higher-end competitor of Regal, increased their prices and the lower-end competitors followed. When the tax decision was unexpectedly reversed, Ali was raised with the issue of maintaining the somewhat new price increase (of 65 Rs) or dropping prices down to the original cost of the cooler, 1000 Rs. Ali is faced with the difficult assessment of how to exploit market conditions for increased profits without having the advantage of enough time to consider the optimal pricing strategy .…
