Students are required to form a group to study, undertake research, analyse and conduct academic work within the areas of business finance covered in learning materials Topics 1 to 10 inclusive. The assignment should examine the main issues, including underlying theories, implement performance measures used and explain the firm financial performance. Your group is strongly advised to reference professional websites, journal articles and text books in this assignment (case study).
This assessment task is a written report and analysis of the financial performance of a selected listed company on the ASX in order to provide financial and investment advice to a wealthy investor. This assignment requires your group to undertake a comprehensive examination of a firm’s financial performance based on update financial statements of the chosen companies.
This assignment must be completed IN Group. Each group can be from 2 to maximum 4 student members. Each group will choose 1 company and once the company has been chosen, the other group cannot choose the same company. First come first served rule applies here, it means you need to form your group, choose on company from the list of ASX and register them with your lecturer as soon as possible. Once your lecturer registers your chosen company, it cannot be chosen by any other group. Your lecturer then will put your group on Black Board to enable you to interact and discuss on the issues of your group assignment using Black Board environment. However, face to face meeting, discussion and other methods of communication are needed to ensure quality of group work. Each group needs to have your own arrangement so that all the group members will contribute equally in the group work. If not, a Contribution Statement, which clearly indicated individual contribution (in terms of percentage) of each member, should be submitted as a separate item in your assignment. Your individual contribution then will be assessed based on contribution statement to avoid any free riders.
Please make sure that your group member’s name and surname, student ID, subject name, and code and lecture’s name are written on the cover sheet of the submitted assignment.
When you submit your assignment electronically, please save the file as ‘Group Assignment-your group name .doc’. You are required to submit the assignment at Group Assignment Final Submission, which is under Group Assignment and Due Dates on Black Board.
Submitted work should be your original work showing your creativity. Please ensure the self-check for plagiarism to be done before final submission (plagiarism check is not over 30% of similarity, except the cases where the similarity is reflected by using the same format of Holmes’ assignment, the same references or sources of data) in accordance with SafeAssign Student Guide in Black Board. Please note that it takes 48 hours for the self-check report to be available for your viewing.
Always keep an electronic copy until you have received the final grade for the Unit. Please make sure that you submit the correct file. Any appeal relating to submitting wrong files after the deadline will not be considered.
