Final Presentation for Company B
At the end of the course, you will prepare a presentation as if it was meant for your Board of Directors or Shareholders.
Your presentation should include the following topics and slides:
• A brief review of the financial and strategic performance of your company during the time you and have run the company.
This review should consist of charts showing the following:
o Trends in the company’s annual total revenues
o Trends in the company’s annual earnings per share (EPS)
o Trends in the company’s annual return on equity investment (ROE)
o Trends in the company’s annual credit rating
o Trends in the company’s year-end stock price
o Trends in the company’s annual image rating
o Trends in global unit sales (both branded and private-label footwear)
o Trends in the company’s global market share
There is a Performance Summary containing bar graphs showing your company’s performance on each of the above eight performance indicators. To create charts showing your company’s trends for these eight measures, simply double-click on the bar graphs to save the graph as an image locally.
Other slides required in the presentation include:
• A slide describing your strategic vision for the company.
• A slide that shows what performance targets for EPS, ROE, credit rating, and image rating you would set for each of the next two years (assuming the simulation were to continue). You may also want to include global market share and/or stock price targets as well.
• A slide that sets forth your company’s competitive strategy in branded footwear in some detail and how that strategy has evolved over the years you have managed the company. You may need to have more than one slide here if your company’s strategy in branded footwear varies markedly from geographic region to geographic region or if your strategy for branded sales to retailers differs in important ways from your strategy for Internet sales.
• A slide that sets forth your company’s competitive strategy in private-label in some detail and how that strategy has evolved over the years. More than one slide may be needed if your company’s strategy in private-label footwear varies markedly from one geographic region to another.
• A slide showing your company’s production strategy and work force compensation strategy
• A slide describing your company’s finance strategy (as concerns dividends, use of debt versus equity, stock issues/repurchases, actions to achieve/maintain a strong credit rating, etc.) You should clearly describe your company’s dividend policy during the period you have managed the company. Here, you should also set forth what sort of dividend increases, if any, you would likely consider paying out in the next two upcoming years (given the EPS targets you have established).
• A slide showing (1) those companies you consider to be your strongest/closest competitors in branded footwear as of the last year or two of the simulation and (2) those companies that are your strongest/closest competitors in the private-label segment of the marketplace.
• One or more slides detailing the actions you would take to out-compete these close rivals in the next two years (assuming the simulation continues for several more years). Since the actions may differ as between branded and private-label footwear, you may well need 2 slides here.
• A set of slides detailing the “lessons learned” about crafting a winning strategy and about what the managers of a company should or should not do for a company to be financially and competitively successful in a head-to-head battle against shrewdly-managed rival companies.
