Chapter 10: Small Business Dilemma, Sports Exports Company Assessment of Exchange Rate Exposure by the Sports Exports Company At the current time, the Sports Exports Company is willing to receive payments in pounds for the monthly exports it sends to the United Kingdom. While all of its receivables are denominated in pounds, it has no payables in British pounds or any other foreign currency. Jim Logan, owner of the Sports Exports Company, wants to assess his firm's exposure to exchange rate risk. 1. Would you describe the exposure Of the Sports Exports Company to exchange rate risk as transaction exposure? Economic exposure? Translation exposure? ANSWER: The Sports Exports Company is subject to transaction exposure, because the business requires foreign exchange transactions in the future. Since transaction exposure is a subset of economic exposure, the Sports Exports Company is also subject to economic exposure. However, the Sports Exports Company is not exposed to translation exposure because it does not have foreign subsidiaries at the present time.

    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.
