Guillermo Furniture Store Analysis Arnold Rehaye Managerial Accounting and Legal Aspects of Business / ACC 543 Harry Sinclair 07/23/08 Guillermo Furniture Store Analysis The Company of Guillermo Furniture is trying to be competent and gat the upper hand in the competition in its industry. The management are generating some new ideas and alternatives in this direction. Especially, some competitors from Norway is reducing Guillermo’s market share. They are also strong in international level too. However, Guillermo is not a company to give up. They know pros and cons of their current structure and they want to improve their competitiveness in a rapid manner. This paper will try to compare the alternative of being a broker of a Norwegian company with the reply to the question whether it’s worthy to be a representative abandoning current manufacturing nature. Guillermo had eliminated some other options like to become a high-end manufacturer getting rid of current status. Another option was actually to carry on with his current structure. High-end manufacturing involves huge investment including computer aided design and manufacturing. In addition to that, Guillermo is supposed to hire highly-skilled new labor-force. This is also another cost increasing factor for Guillermo. In furniture industry all the production processes started to getting more electronic and high-tech driven. At such a situation, it’s time to make a decision on what to do. (Ref 1: Baker) If we review the Guillermo Furniture’s financial statements, we notice that current assets increase each year while the competition increases in the industry. The total assets also didn’t reduce in size when compared to previous year despite of tough competitors.

    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.
