Hamilton 28 September 2007 Phase 4 Task 2 As the president of Aggressive Venture Capital Company, I am now interested in purchasing XYZ Corporation. First and foremost, I will need the company’s financial statements. It is now time to establish a minimum and a maximum purchase price my company would be willing to pay XYZ. For this particular industry, the standard is twice the net sales as a fair selling price. Net sales for the current year total $760,000. Mathematically, we conclude $1,520,000 (760000 * 2), followed by the added tax rate of 20% (1,520,000 * 1.20) for $1,824,000 would be the standard offering price. We know that sales has increased in the last year by 10%. It is important for Aggressive to take into account the debt and turnover ratios. The inventory turnover ratio equaled 1.73. I personally would not be willing to purchase XYZ for 2 times its net sales. The cash to debt ratios as well as the turnover ratio is poor. Another buying alternative would be to make an offer based on XYZ’s minority interest. Let’s briefly look at the Paid in Capital, Par Value of 15%, and other profits. The balance sheet shows $344,000 paid in capital, par value of stock of $8,000 (8000 shares of $1 par value). Based on these calculations >> (($344,000 + $8,000 ) * 15%)= $404,800; we can assume this is not a reasonable selling price either. Because the average market price is $15 we can offer to pay up to $17 assume this is not a reasonable selling price either....
