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.

Support your decision with an interpretation of any calculations you performed, as well as an explanation of any other factors you considered.
