You are expected to conduct research on one financial management issue (for instance, mergers and acquisitions, valuation, debt versus equity financing, payout policies, issues of bonds, etc.). Based on your research, select one issue and an organization that has created a financial management strategy to manage this issue. Please evaluate the impact of the selected issue on the selected organization. Prepare an 8–10 page paper, and remember to adhere to APA format standards. Please address the evaluation on the following items: • Describe your selected issue. • Describe the financial strategy that your selected organization has created to manage your selected contemporary issue. • Assess the impact of corporate governance and ethical issues on the organization’s strategy. • Evaluate the financial situation of the organization prior to any action taking place. • Assess the financial situation after the action was taken. • Was the organization successful in managing the selected issue? Why or why not? You must follow the format below for your written paper: Title: The title is a concise statement of the subject of the paper. Abstract: The abstract is an “executive overview” of your paper. It should be a 50- to 100-word summary that would be appropriate to give your manager so that he/she would know the essence of your project without reading the paper in its entirety. Table of Contents: In this section, list each section of your paper, with the page number. The list should include: • Tables and figures if you included more than two • Appendices, if included • Reference section listing sources used Introduction: In this section, state the purpose of the research paper in succinct, declarative sentences. Convince your reader that the study will have a practical value and meaning and will be based upon the concepts studied in the course. Background and Significance: In this section, provide further justification of the need for your study. Outline anticipated challenges. Explain the applicable concepts and include examples and references from case studies completed during the course. Discussion, Implications and Recommendations: In this section, you should provide a thorough discussion of specific solutions to challenges outlined in the background section. Provide a recommended plan of action, which includes a discussion of best practices and issues that need further research. Be sure that the recommendations are realistic in terms of the appropriate concepts. References: You may use your textbooks as a primary source of information but you must also draw on other sources such as websites, business journals, information from an organization, and interviews with individuals. Be sure that you support the information presented with appropriate references. It is important that all references and quotes are cited correctly. All sources, including websites must be referenced in the bibliography or references list. You must follow the APA style. Remember to include 5 or more references. Appendices: Include a separate sheet and title for each appendix. More key points: Keep in mind that all accepted rules of English composition apply to your research paper. The paper must be typed or word-processed, be double spaced, and have standard margins (1 inch on each side). The length of the paper is not the primary measure of the quality of the paper. A paper of 40–50 pages is probably too long for the purposes of this project. On the other hand, the purpose of this project cannot be properly satisfied in a paper of only 5 pages! As a guideline, you will probably need 8–10 pages to present your research adequately. Compose your work using a word processor (or other software as appropriate) and save it frequently to your computer.
