Module 1: Discussion Forum No unread replies. 1 1 reply. You are a new accountant at a publicly-traded biopharmaceutical company. Your company wants to develop a new therapeutic drug and needs financing. The company’s executives want the accounting department to put together a report to present to potential investors. The executives want you to include scientific findings from the first phase of the clinical trials of the drug. Although the company has had a 20% success rate in the past, the executives want the findings from the clinical trials reported so potential investors can see that this product will be successful. Another argument is that, although there are no sales yet, the clinical trials prove that once the company receives the funds to get through the clinical testing, it will obtain government approval to make as well as sell the drug, which will make the investor happy. Explain the accounting information and the characteristics of qualitative accounting information.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
