© 2016 Grant Thornton LLP | Project Lightning | October 21, 2016 DRAFT 14 Other key observations Insights, opportunities and risks Topic Observations Insights The Company operates at an independent level from Target Co., using services that can be leveraged if they are already in place at an acquirer's organization. Our diligence procedures confirmed the Company operates independently of Target Co. corporate with few shared services shared between them. See MA-05 for a detailed explanation of these expenses, which relate to profit sharing, LTIPs, legal, audit and tax fees, payroll, HR and market share analyses. The acquirer should determine if these costs can be incremental with the acquirer's organization. The Company has a verbal agreement to perform the largest project in the Company's history, at approximately $68,500. The Company is currently in final negotiations for the Wanda Tower, a contract approximately valued at $68,500 to fabricate unitized Product 2 at the to be third largest building in State 1. This project is expected to begin in the fourth quarter of 2017 and performed through 2019. The Company's newly built unitized Product 2 line in State 4 will be utilized to perform the work.

    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.
