Report describe the ways in which timely and accurate financial data provide a powerful tool for managers to use in the decision-making process. Strategic decisions can particularly benefit. For example, an organisation may be faced with a decision regarding expansion. Sometimes, 'expansion' refers to an expanded product offering (something being considered by Anthony's Orchard, as you will explore in this solution). Expansion can also refer to expansion of sales into new customer markets, or to physical expansion, by opening additional facilities.

BLC Inc. is a medium-sized manufacturing company based in the UK. The company operates mainly in the London area and is based in Peterborough. At a recent board meeting, the company decided to expand its activities, and to lease additional temporary premises in London in order to cope with additional demand.

In this unit, you will analyse data related to anticipated cash flows resulting from BLC's expansion to either of two potential new premises. Your group will collaborate to make a recommendation.

To prepare for this Shared Activity:

Review the financial data below. The company has narrowed the choice to the following two alternatives, with the following cash flow information being available.

Note 1: The company's current cost of capital is 10%.

Note 2: Ignore taxation.

 To complete this Shared Activity:

Post an explanation of the tools that you believe would help you to reach a decision. If you were a decision-maker in this organisation, which calculations and measures would you want at your disposal before making your choice? Are there other, non-financial factors that may play a role in your decision? Additionally, include your recommendation to the company which option it should take. Support your decision with an interpretation of any calculations you performed, as well as an explanation of any other factors you considered.

Respond to at least two colleagues' postings who have a different recommendation, or who utilised different financial or non-financial factors in reaching a decision. Discuss these differences and argue for or against specific ideas that have been posted.
