Glad to get on a call next week for clarifications if necessary. I encourage you
Glad to get on a call next week for clarifications if necessary. I encourage you to be creative and have some fun writing the case while ensuring you have the “financials” embedded (you will do some ‘dummy/sample’ answers in the two-page section at the end of the assignment). Again … the key is to be creative. I put an example on slide 2 of a basic ‘thought process’ around the myriad decisions that could be included in the example (golf course) I provided. I strongly encourage you to look at the SAMPLE CASE included at the bottom of page one to get a “sense” of the style I’m looking for. The Sunnyhill Case we discussed in class would work ass well (here there are lots of charts etc… which you are encouraged to use where applicable).
You would write something like: John Smith was wrestling with the three proposals on his desk … he had to figure out the best way to spend the $1,000,000 received from OLG … John knew that each department head would be disappointed if they did not receive the money; this was going to be a difficult decision!
To be clear … I want you to come up with your own case (NOT THIS GOLF CASE) and the accompanying numbers (you come up with the capital expenditure, the hurdle [justify the number], the gross income, expenses, NET income, the subjective elements etc). The only consistent is I have put a FIVE year time horizon on this.
