The unacceptable nature of such a fee arrangement guards the profession against unethical actions that could undermine its real and perceived value to society. Communicating in Practice — BTN 1-4 1. Deciding whether Facebook is a good loan risk can be difficult because the planned expansion is risky if customer demand does not meet expectations. As a loan officer in this situation you would want information on the company’s (1) projections of expected cash receipts and cash payments (best provided on a monthly basis); (2) assessment of the market, the company’s plans, and a strategy to achieve success; (3) cash contributions that Mark Zuckerberg will make to the business; and (4) a listing of tangible assets (including their price and useful life) necessary to carry out the company’s plans. 2. How the company is organized is important to a loan officer. If it is a pro- prietorship (and not LLC), the personal assets of Mark Zuckerberg are available to repay the loan. In this case, a loan officer will want information about Mark’s financial status. If it is a corporation, the amounts invested in the business by each shareholder are especially important. The loan officer can also require owners or shareholders to personally guarantee the loan for additional protection for the bank. Careful execution of these steps should minimize the bank’s risk of taking on a bad loan. 1-57
