It analyses and evaluates a prospective joint venture between a German subsidiary and EMF Plc, re-domiciling the parent company from France to Monaco and expanding into Asia. The financial analysis showed that a joint venture requires an €2 million investment, which could be funded by the shareholders offering a yield of return of 12%. Using the financial data provided and calculating the weighted average cost of capital and the Net Present Value, a WACC of 10% and a NPV of €2.051 million were the results, proving the worthiness of the investment into the joint venture. Before signing any agreements further research needs to be taken to evaluate non-financial aspects such as opportunity costs and other investments. The second part of the report deals with the re-domiciling of the parent company from France to Monaco. From a business perspective and logical point of view this step makes sense as a lot of business operations are being run in Monaco, but it could still damage the company’s image to move from France just for profit and also shareholders might not like the idea. Furthermore IFM Plc......

Pestle Analysis of Barclays Plc

...PESTEL ANALYSIS OF BARCLAYS PLC PESTLE analysis is very useful for studying the environment in which a company operates and accessing external factors influencing the company in the markets it operates. PESTLE is the acronym for the following categories of investigation: political, economic, sociological, technological, legal and environmental (Cheverton, 2004; Partridge and Sinclair-Hunt, 2006). Discussing the political factors influencing operation of the banks in the national, local and regional levels and legislation, it should be mentioned that banks have always been to a certain degree regulated by the government (Benston, 2000). For example, government determines the fraction of reserves that a commercial bank should keep with the Central Bank. Taking into consideration the fact that Barclays Plc operates in more than 50 countries it will not be possible to study all the possible regulative frameworks within the current research. Various regulative bodies carry out controlling functions under various conditions such as Controller of the Currency (OCC) in the United States (Benston, 2000). Tax regulation the company submits to is one more important political aspect. Barclays obeys regional tax framework in all the countries of its operation. Besides, the company has to submit to double taxation in the cases where there are appropriate agreements between countries. It may be stated that tax risk is observed because regular changes in tax legislation and......
