Selected Company: Apple Company




Part I


Every company has capital projects. The company you have selected must need something! Be it a new wing to the building, a new product line to be funded, a new piece of equipment, find one new acquisition your company needs.

Once you have identified the new possible investment item, what problems are you going to have in estimating the cash flow that might be emanating from the initial investment and problems in getting it funded? Issues might be:

•Risk
•Cost
•Politics (getting it through committees)
•Public Relations
•etc.,

Identify a potential capital project for your company describe such a project and write a short summary of the problems you see in getting the funding to see it through. 

Part II

Examine the structure and activities in your organization and identify two projects or events that required an investment. One should be a ‘current project’ and the other long-term investment project.

For each project or event, identify the preferable source of funding. You may not have access to the actual source of funding so limit your paper to the source YOU feel is most appropriate. Then explain why you feel that source is most appropriate.
