FIN302 - Supplementary Assignment (25% of total marks)

This assignment consists of 2 parts which together makes up 25% of the total assessment for FIN302 subject.

PART A (10%)

1 One point of concern for you is that there is a trade-off between the higher interest rates in Thailand and the delayed conversion of baht into Australian dollars. Explain what this means.

2 If the net baht received from the Thailand operation are invested in Thailand, how will Australian operations be affected? (Assume that Aussie Blades is currently paying 10 per cent on Australian dollars borrowed and needs more financing for the company.)

3 Construct a spreadsheet to compare the cash flows resulting from two plans. Under the first plan, net baht-denominated cash flows (received today) will be invested in Thailand at 15 per cent for a one-year period, after which the baht will be converted to Australian dollars. The expected spot rate for the baht in one year is about A\$0.0361 (Ben Holt’s plan). Under the second plan, net baht-denominated cash flows are converted to Australian dollars immediately

and invested in Australia for one year at 8 per cent. For this question, assume that all baht- denominated cash flows are due today. Does Holt’s plan seem superior in terms of Australian dollar cash flows available after one year? Compare the choice of investing the funds versus using the funds to provide needed financing to the company.

4 The difference between the Thai baht interest rate (15 per cent) and the Australian dollar interest rate (8 per cent) is 7 per cent. If you anticipate that the Thai baht will depreciate by at least 7 per cent in one year, which plan in question (3) (the first or second plan) is it better to exercise? Explain your recommendation.

PART B

(15%) Select 2 Australian MNCs that are part of the ASX20 Index.

2 chosen companies must have significant operations overseas and cannot be from the same industry group (if you choose one from the financial sector the second company must not be from the financial industry).  Wrong selection of companies will immediately result in failure of this part of the assignment.

1) Provide a brief background of each companies’ business, listing the countries where each have operations in. Determine the country where each of them derives the most revenue outside of Australia. From the company’s annual reports and other sources, explain in details how the company manage their foreign currency exposure to that country to reduce their transactions and translations risk.

2) From question 1, plot the weekly chart of the foreign currency vs AUD exchange rate for each of the companies against its ASX listed share price for the past 2 years. Determine if there is any correlation between the exchange rate and its share price over that period. Explain your findings (provide an explanation based on the companies’ global operation and management of its forex exposure) in details specific to each company that you have chosen.

3) Determine if the two companies have a separate listing on a foreign stock exchange. If they do, explain why you think the company has chosen to list its shares on that secondary stock exchange. Explain the benefits and downside to having that secondary listing. If the companies do not have a secondary listing, explain why it may be beneficial for them to do so and recommend which stock exchange the companies should consider a secondary listing. Explain your recommendation in details.
