Question

I need a financial analysis of the Tootsie Roll Company Completed by Friday at 830 pm. I am posting the directions for the course beneath. The information listed is sufficient enough for the final report. Part 1 of your final report is the "Company Overview" and should contain a section for each item listed below. Note: Be sure to include the section headings! Brief description of the company (one paragraph, briefly summarizing the company?s business) Company history (origin, major developments, etc.) Organization (describe how the company is structured) Main products and services (describe what the company sells; how it makes money) Geographic area of operations (describe where the company sells its products) Recent developments (list recent major news stories, if any) Refer to the Case Study topic lecture on the Week 3: Case Study Development page. Using the information you obtained last week, complete the Part 2, Financial Overview portion of the case study report and submit it as an attachment here. Note that your Financial Overview should contain: A Sales and Income Record, to include sales and net income figures for 2004-2009 and a graph displaying the trends. Comments on the Sales and Income Record. A list of the company?s major expenses for FY 2009 and a pie chart showing the Expense Distribution. Comments on the expense distribution. A list of the company?s major assets for FY 2009 and a pie chart showing the Assets Distribution. Comments on the assets distribution. A list of the company?s major capital accounts for FY 2009 and a pie chart showing the Capital Structure. Comments on the capital structure. Revise your Company Overview file based on your instructor?s feedback when received. Refer to your online sources of information. Download and save the income statement, balance sheet, and statement of cash flows for 2009 for Hershey Foods, Inc. (you will need them next week for comparison to Tootsie Roll). Once you have obtained the data, it would be a good idea to transfer it to an Excel spreadsheet. For Week 5, please turn in the following from Chapter 1 (sixth chapter in the book) of your McGraw-Hill Create Text: Question 1.3, a budget for Wye Industries Question 1.6 (a) and (b) Question 1.7 (a), (b), and (c) Answer the following budgeting questions for Big Bob?s Discount Appliances: Big Bob's Discount Appliances expects sales of $5,000, $5,000, and $10,000 during April, May, and June (big sale in June). To build business, Big Bob lets all customers buy on credit, and all do so. In the past, 50% of Big Bob's sales have been collected during the month of sale, 40% are collected the following month, and 10% the month after that. If this trend continues, what will be Big Bob's total cash collections in the month of June? Big Bob expects to have $100 in cash on hand at the beginning of June, and the company's target cash balance is $100. Net cash flow for June is minus $300. Assuming that Charley borrows to meet short term cash needs and pays back as soon as surplus cash is available, what will be the company's ending cash balance after financing at the end of June? Answer the following budgeting question about the Ma & Pa Kettle?s Chili Company: Ma & Pa Kettle?s Chili Company has begun selling a new chili recipe and they want you to help them with next year?s budgeted financial statements.
