...Pedram Sharokhi FI 504 08/23/2008 Hershey Company & Tootsie Roll Company Company History Both the Hershey Company and the Tootsie Roll Company specialize in a wide variety of chocolate candy products. "The Hershey Company is a leading snack food company and the largest North American manufacturer of quality chocolate and non-chocolate confectionery products, with revenues of over $4 billion and more than 13,000 employees worldwide". The Hershey Company originated with the candy manufacturer Milton Hershey. In 1894 Milton Hershey wanted to design a sweet coating for his already existing caramels, thus his new enterprise, the Hershey Chocolate Company began. The Hershey Company went public on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) in 1922. The Tootsie Roll Industries, Inc. was established in 1896. "The round piece of chewy, chocolatey candy that delights Americans today still looks and tastes amazingly like the first Tootsie Roll, made over 109 years ago". The Tootsie Roll "still sells for one penny, the original price, even though the company now offers candy packages priced up to $6.99. The first penny candies to be individually wrapped in paper, Tootsie Rolls are protected today". The Tootsie Roll Industry produces more than 60 million Tootsie Rolls per day and is also the world's largest lollipop supplier, producing 20 million lollipops daily.

...Case Study 2 FI504 Accounting and Finance for Managerial Use and Analysis Recommendations for LJB Company:  Requirements for Going Public:    A requirement of all publicly traded companies is to comply with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002. This means that LJB would be required to maintain a system of internal control. The controls must be reliable and effective, which the executives and Board of Directors must monitor. Also, an outside auditor must confirm that the control systems are sufficient. Although there will be additional work on both designing, testing and auditing of controls if LBJ decides to go public, but the control system may result in money and time saved in the long-term regardless. Good practices: LJB Company currently has some good practices I suggest they continue. The use of pre-numbered invoices allows for missing or undocumented invoices to be caught quickly. This practice is considered a documentation procedure under internal controls. Having two managers approve new hires helps ensure a good fit. It’s good that the accountant completes bank reconciliation. While using a bank is a form of control for cash, the reconciliation enables LJB to make sure there are no errors between what the bank and what they have on the books.   Areas of Improvement:  There are a number of practices by LJB that don’t deter fraud and would need to be changed before considering going public. Segregation of duties: The duties for handling assets...

...CHAPTER 1 Introduction to Financial Statements ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS  1. The three basic forms of business organizations are (1) sole proprietorship, (2) partnership, and (3) corporation.  2. Advantages of a corporation are limited liability (stockholders not being personally liable for corporate debts), easy transferability of ownership, and easier to raise funds. Disadvantages of a corporation are increased taxation and government regulations.  3. Proprietorships and partnerships receive favorable tax treatment compared to corporations and are easier to form than corporations. They are also owner controlled. Disadvantages of proprietorships and partnerships are unlimited liability (proprietors/partners are personally liable for all debts) and difficulty in obtaining financing compared to corporations.  4. Yes. A person cannot earn a living, spend money, buy on credit, make an investment, or pay taxes without receiving, using, or dispensing financial information. Accounting provides financial information to interested users through the preparation and distribution of financial statements.  5. Internal users are managers who plan, organize, and run a business. To assist management, accounting provides timely internal reports.

...FI504 Case Study 3 on Cash Budgeting Requirements: 1. Use this information to prepare a Cash Budget for the months of August and September, using the template provided in Doc Sharing. Excel Spreadsheet 2. What are the three sections of a Cash Budget, and what is included in each section? The cash budget is separated into three sections: cash receipts, cash disbursements, and financing (Cenar, 2009). The first section, cash receipts, is exactly what the name implies, which is the cash expected to be received for goods or services rendered by the company. Because it is driven mostly by sales, cash is not just the physical dollar amounts being received by the company but also includes interest and dividends as well as planned sales of assets like stock or inventory or plant sales (Parry, 2006). The second section is cash disbursements, which just means payments for expenses that the company incurs to do business (DeThomas, 1980). Examples of these payments would be labor costs, raw materials cost, and income taxes (DeThomas, 1980). Anything that is used or will be used to maintain operations or production for the company would be put into this category of the cash budget. Finally, the financing section is where any money borrowed from investors, banks, and other financial sources can be located (Cenar, 2009). This section shows borrowing and repayment of that borrowed money, and is necessary to utilize as a guide against cash deficiency (Cenar, 2009)...

...FI504 – Accounting and Finance Case Study #2 Evaluation of Internal Controls Attention Mr. President, The Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 is a United States federal law which sets new or enhanced standards for all U.S. public companies. The reason that this Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 bill was created was because of a number of major corporate and accounting scandals. When these scandals occurred they cost investors billions in losses because the share prices fell it shook public confidence in our securities markets. That is why it is important to comply with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 requirements. This means that LJB would be required to maintain a system of internal control. The controls must be reliable and effective, which the executives and Board of Directors must monitor. Also, an outside auditor must confirm that the control systems are sufficient. The annual report must include an attestation report from a registered public accounting firm. Failure to comply with the standards of SOX subjects LJB Company, along with the executive officers and board of directors to severe penalties of fines and imprisonment.    The five principles of internal control are the following:   * Establishment of Responsibility   * Segregation of Duties   * Documentation Procedures   * Physical Controls   * Independent Internal Verification   * Human Resource Controls The accountant’s decision to start using pre-numbered invoices is an important component of the......

...Case Study 2 -Internal Control LJB Company, a local distributor, has asked your accounting firm to evaluate their system of internal controls because they are planning to go public in the future. The President wants to be aware of any new regulations required of his company if they go public so he met with a colleague of yours at a local restaurant. The President of the company explained the current system of internal controls to your colleague. Your colleague has since been promoted to a tax position so she has passed on the information below so you can generate recommendations for the partner at your accounting firm to share with the President of LJB Company. Since LJB Company is a relatively lean organization, they have a lot of faith in their long-term employees. They have one accountant who serves as Treasurer and Controller which streamlines many of their processes. In this dual role, he purchases all of the supplies and pays for these purchases. He also receives the checks and completes the monthly bank reconciliation. The accountant is so busy that the company handles petty cash a bit differently. All employees have access to the petty cash in a desk drawer and are asked to only place a note if they use any of the cash. The accountant has recently started using pre-numbered invoices and wants to buy an indelible ink machine to print their checks. The President is waiting to hear from you if this is a necessary purchase before authorizing. On payday, the......

...LJB COMPANY: Internal Control Review I. NEW INTERNAL CONTROL REQUIREMENTS FOR GOING PUBLIC Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (SOX), enacted on July 29,2002, is a United States Federal law that imposed new rules and regulations for all US public companies. Under SOX Section 404, all publicly listed corporations are required to maintain an adequate system of internal control. Under SOX, corporate executives and the board of directors are personally responsible for making sure that the internal controls in place are effective and reliable. Independent auditors should also attest to the reliability of the said internal controls. Failure to do so would result to fines and/or imprisonment1. The following should be included in LJB Company’s annual report if the company decides to go public: * A statement of the management’s responsibility for establishing and maintaining effective internal control * A statement specifying the framework that the management used to evaluate the effectiveness of the company’s internal control * Management’s assessment of the effectiveness of their Internal Control. It must also include any “material weaknesses” currently present. The internal control is only deemed effective once all material weaknesses are properly addressed and solved. * A statement that a registered public accounting firm has issued an attestation report on the management’s internal control .2 If LJB Company decides to go public, it must take into......
