Previously, there was an assignment on the context in which corporations exist among the various stakeholders at issue. You were to identify three important stakeholders for a corporation, and then explain the role that each stakeholders plays within the corporation. Additionally, you must explain how they influence one another.
The goal of this assignment is to extend that assignment by writing a short paper in which you answer the following: What do you consider as the most important stakeholder? Is it important for corporations to focus on maximizing shareholder wealth? Explain in your own words where each of the major stakeholders is represented within the financial statements of the corporation. You should be able to discuss at least four major stakeholders at this point. For example, the customers provide sales revenue and are represented within the income statement sales revenue figures.
Your response should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts presented in the course by providing new thoughts and insights relating directly to this topic. Your response should reflect scholarly writing and current APA standards where appropriate. Be sure to adhere to Northcentral University’s Academic Integrity Policy.

Create an assessment in which you address the following problems/questions:
- Assess the relevant cash flows used to form a capital budgeting decision model. For this assignment, focus upon an expansionary problem.
- Evaluate the cost of capital (WACC) for use in a capital budgeting decision model. Make sure to define each component of the formula. Explain how the resulting cost of capital (WACC) is used within a capital budgeting model. How can the Capital Asset Pricing Model contribute to this analysis? Explain.
- Weigh each of the following decision metrics that can be used within a capital budgeting decision model: net present value, internal rate of return, modified internal rate of return, payback period, and discounted payback period. Explain how each metric is formed and discuss the critical value of each in forming conclusions within a capital budgeting decision model. Discuss which method has the strongest basis for being used and under which conditions each might be the preferred method.
- Develop a capital budgeting decision model that displays cash flows, cost of capital, and decision metrics (i.e., npv, irr, mirr, payback, and discounted payback). Then, form a conclusion based upon the analysis. What are some problems with the payback period? Is NPV better than IRR? Begin with the example problem on pages 405 and 406 of the textbook, Table 12.1. Modify the problem in the following manner, and then develop the analysis within an Excel spreadsheet.
- Assume the units sold are 2,700,000 in year 2013, and they grow each subsequent year at 5%.
- Assume each unit will sell for $2.10.
- Assume the variable cost of producing each unit is 1.10.
- Assume straight-line depreciation.
- The cost of capital is calculated based upon funding from retained earnings and from debt. The company is assumed to fund itself with 50% debt and 50% retained earnings. The cost of debt capital, rD, is 7%. The cost of capital from retained earnings, rS, is based upon the capital asset pricing model. The risk free rate in the market is 5% and the difference between the expected return on the market and the risk free rate is 5%. The beta for the company is 2.0. The tax rate is assumed to be 40%.
- Complete a sensitivity analysis in which you reevaluate the model considering the selling price per unit is 1.90, 2.00, 2.10, 2.20, and 2.30. Present and comment on the results.
- Assume all other assumptions as given.
Support your paper with at least three (3) resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources, including older articles, may be included. Your paper should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts presented in the course by providing new thoughts and insights relating directly to this topic.
Your response should reflect scholarly writing and current APA standards. Be sure to adhere to Northcentral University’s Academic Integrity Policy.
