ATTACH YOUR FINANCIAL STATEMENTS AND HIGHLIGHT NUMBERS USED. PART 2: Company Business Model MAIN SOURCE FOR YOUR PAPER: Company's 10-k statement:  Return to your company's most recent 10-k on the SEC website. Do NOT click on "Interactive Data", but click on "Documents"  Select the 10-k, full document (it may take a few tries, but it should be the biggest file there).  Open up the 10-k, full document, and scroll down the Table of Contents  Review the sections under "Business", "Risk Factors", and the "Management Discussion & Analysis".  Briefly answer the questions below: CREATE one or more SLIDEs FOR THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS: 1. Describe the company's business; what does it do? 2. Describe the company's customers, what is a typical customer (consumer, business, government)? 3. What are the company's strengths, as compared to its competitors? Each of your company's has ONE competitor in the class. 4. What are the risk factors (name 2-3 that you feel are important)? 5. What growth opportunities does the company have? ADDITIONAL SOURCES FOR YOUR PAPER: FIND TWO OUTSIDE RESOURCES* which describe this company. Summarize the articles in a few key points. Briefly answer the questions below. For ideas on Outside Resources, see below CREATE one or more SLIDEs FOR THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS: 6. Is this Company's Business Model Sustainable? 7. Comment on this information. Are the INSIDE (10-K) and OUTSIDE (articles, magazines, etc.) consistent? Do you believe this business model is sustainable? Why or why not? 8. When you consider sustainability, be CREATIVE. Don't just look at the Company's business model, consider Society. For example, a company like Safeway sells affordable ("cheap") produce. They buy it cheap and sell it cheap. However, this requires the shipping of fresh produce from long distances on federally/state maintained roads. What is the cost to Society of shipping products by truck, long distance and is this sustainable?  ATTACH the Table of Contents from the 10-k and the first page of each of the following sections from the 10-k: "Business", "Risk Factors", and the "Management Discussion & Analysis". Also, attach the first page of each OUTSIDE source and the web reference. Content: take a position; provide evidence to support your conclusion, e.g., “Sales have improved dramatically over the three years-- 10% growth in 2001 compared to 2000 and 15% growth in 2002 compared to 2001.” Organization: Organize your thoughts clearly; don’t ramble from topic to topic. For longer paragraphs, make a short outline to assure that you say what you want to say. Editing: Avoid typos and misspellings, avoid run on sentences, awkward sentences. Proof read your team members’ writing and give them feedback on this. Note: When writing about the company, refer to it as an “IT”, not a “THEY.” Company is singular, not plural.
