CARDED GRAPHICS, LLC: SHEETER REPLACEMENT DECISION Teaching Note

Synopsis and Objectives The owner of a midsize folding carton printer is considering the replacement of an old machine for cutting sheets of paper from rolls (a sheeter) with a new one. This standard capital budgeting analysis, which requires identification of both the relevant cash flows and the relevant discount rate, is enhanced by an alternative that is not explicitly stated but can be readily identified and analyzed—to outsource all sheeting and close down the sheeting operation. This alternative, which turns out to be financially optimal based on quantifiable case facts, forces students to consider strategic and other nonquantifiable factors. In this context, students come to realize that success depends more on technology, innovation, and flexibility than is often assumed for manufacturing companies. The case is designed to achieve the following learning objectives:  Provide a context for exploring the cash flow implications of an equipment replacement decision, including sunk costs, incremental costs, opportunity costs, capacity, and salvage values. Provide a context for exploring the determinants and calculation of an appropriate discount rate, including the evaluation and calculation of a weighted average cost of capital for industry peers, a company-specific cost of capital, and cost of borrowing specifically tied to the equipment purchase. Illustrate the limits to standard capital budgeting approaches and the importance of nonquantifiable factors such as flexibi ...

Separation of Ownership and Control Stephanie Forte Macroeconomics Paper #1 Class – 8-9:10 @ OCC Abstract This paper analyzes the survival of organizations in which decision agents do not bear a major share of the wealth effects of their decisions. This is what the literature on large corporations calls separation of “ownership” and “control.” Such separation of decision and risk bearing functions is also common to organizations like large professional partnerships, financial mutuals and nonprofits. We contend that separation of decision and risk bearing functions survive

    INTRODUCTION English is generally acknowledged to be the world’s most important language. It is perhaps worth glancing briefly at the basis of its evolution for that evaluation. There are thousands of different languages in the world, and each will seem uniquely important to those who speak it as their native language, the language they acquired at their mother’s knee. But there are more objective standards of relative importance. One criterion is the number of speakers of the respective language. A second is the extent to which a language is geographically dispersed: in how many
