Stand-Alone Final Project, Apple Financial plan

Paper , Order, or Assignment Requirements

You should begin working on the Stand-Alone Project early in the course. Each lesson provides a benchmark for completing the Stand-Alone Project in a timely manner while working through the course. You will find this information in the “Stand-Alone Project Benchmark” section of each lesson.
Project Overview
This financial statement analysis requires you to make a specific decision about Apple Computer, Inc. in January 2003. You should base your decision on the information available through December 2002, which can be found in Supplement I and Supplement II, and Appendix A of your text. Use Dell’s and Gateway’s financial data to benchmark Apple’s performance in this case analysis.
Situation: You are a senior loan officer at a multinational bank. Apple Computer’s chief financial officer, authorized by the company’s Board of Directors, has applied for a ten-year note in the amount equal to one-fourth (25%) of existing shareholders’ equity as of December 31, 2002. The company seeks financing for long-term asset expansion. Terms call for interest at the prime rate plus one percent payable annually at December 31, with principal repayment when the note comes due in ten years (January 2013).
Decision: Your task is to make a recommendation to approve or reject Apple’s application to the bank’s loan committee. Your recommendation should be based on a thorough examination of Apple’s financial statements, their components (e.g., cash flow analysis), related disclosures, performance relative to the competition, state of the economy, and industry conditions.
Decision Report Format: Your recommendation should include a comprehensive analysis of Apple Computer, its competitors (Dell and Gateway), and the industry. The first page of your paper should be a one-page “executive summary” addressed to the loan committee containing your recommendation and its justification. The remainder of the paper should contain the analysis that led to your conclusion. There is no page limit on the paper’s appendices. The appendices should contain all worksheets, charts, tables, and so forth that support the positions and recommendations in your paper.
