    • 3. CREDIT CRUNCH to DOWNTURN
      • Defined as "a severe shortage of money or credit", the start of the phenomenon has been pinpointed as 9 August 2007 when bad news from French bank BNP Paribas triggered sharp rise in the cost of credit, and made the financial world realize how serious the situation was. (BBC, 7 August 2009)
    • 4. CREDIT CRUNCH to DOWNTURN
      • The roots of the credit crunch, however, started earlier.

      • Lehman Brothers bankruptcy on 15 Sept 2008
      • Collapse in equity markets, commodities prices, and exchange rates

    • 85. Industry Effect
      • Industry structure directly influences a company’s performance
      • A company can convert an innovative strategy into superior competitivness
      • The five forces model forces management to focus on forces driving change and that will be important in the future
    • 86. The Five Forces Model of Industry Structure 11-
    • 87. Definitions
      • Firm: Domestic, international/multinational
      • Industry: global, local
      • Strategy: multi-domestic or multi-local, global, transnational
    • 88. Definition of a Global Industry
      • An industry in which firms must compete in virtually all world markets where the product/service is used in order to be successful and/or survive. In such an industry, a firm’s competitive position is significantly affected by its competitive position in other national markets (due to scale benefits or sharing of resources across markets).
    • 89. Global Strategy
      • Global – does not have to be everywhere, but it has to have the capability to go everywhere, deploy any assets, access any resources; maximizes profits on a global basis
      • Natural progression
        • Establish a core strategy
        • Internationalize

    • 95. Factors Inhibiting Globalization
      • Heavy transportation or storage costs (e.g., low value to bulk products).
      • A lack of economies of scale (flat experience curve)
      • Strong, established local distribution channels and sales organizations
      • A complex, segmented local market in which customers demand very different products (more suitable for a local firm more intimately embedded in it).
      • High cost/difficulty in providing intensive local customer systems, service, or other needed customer interaction.
      • Government barriers.

      • Companies that operate internationally face the asymmetric pressures of global integration versus local responsiveness
      • Change, whether in managers, competencies, industries, or environments, often spurs companies to rethink and reset their value activities

    • 106. Types Of Strategy
      • The firm entering and competing in foreign markets can adopt either an:
        • international
        • multidomestic
        • global
        • transnational strategy
      • Often, firms use a mix of these four types due to company, industry, and environmental situations

    • 112. Case Setting
      • Eastland evaluates P&L performance in US$ and in local currency
        • Hence, subsidiary must make up translation losses with operating performance when dollar strengthens
        • AND subsidiary can’t use translation gains (dollar weakens) to cover poor operating performance
      • Tough Love!
    • 113. Some “Real” History Daily Exchange Rates: U.S. Dollars per Brazilian Real
    • 114. Question 1
      • How would a weakening Brazilian real impact Eastland’s cash flows, translation gains/losses, and asset/liability valuations?
      • What would be the impact of a strengthening real?
      • What would be the impact of a weakening US dollar ?  CAREFUL!

    • 121. Question 4
      • How well does Eastland’s performance evaluation system motivate good decision making?
      • How well does the system support principles of controllability and fairness?
    • 122. The Dilemma
      • Corporate CFO (Karen) needs to respond to the Brazil Division CFO (Sergio) about the fairness of Eastland’s current performance measurement (PM) system
      • Karen is concerned about several issues
        • Equity and motivation
        • Gaming
        • Expectations of U.S. Stockholders
        • Challenges of multiple reporting formats
    • 123. The Nature of Employment Contracts
      • Aspects of performance that affect the contracting relationship
        • Uncertainty
          • Employee is inherently risk averse
        • Moral Hazard
          • Employee exerts less effort than desired by employer because effort cannot be monitored
      • In designing employment contracts, companies need to consider the trade-off between creating incentives vs. imposing risk.
        • Range of possible compensation agreements
          • Flat salary
          • Pure performance based

    • 125. The Employment Contract should …
      • Separate the performance of the manager from the performance of the SBU
      • Include only factors controllable by the manager
      • Recognize and address a manager’s risk aversion
    • 126. Sergio’s Stewardship (in a “perfect world?”)
      • Work closely with Eastland Corporate treasury function to accurately forecast FX rates
      • Select effective hedge contracts based on FX forecasts (e.g., options and forward contracts)
      • Work hard subsequently to react to currency revaluations (e.g., price shifts, transaction timing, vendor selection)
      • **Note: Eastland uses a forecasted exchange rate for budget setting and the actual exchange rate at the end of the period for evaluation

    • 128. Question 5
      • Do you recommend that Eastland continue with its approach of including FX variances in evaluating the performance of international subsidiaries such as its Brazil Division?
    • 129. The Principle of Controllability
      • “ True” Controllability
        • Can the manager affect the distribution by altering his/her inputs?
        • If not, then performance variable is not useful
      • Information Content (i.e., conditional controllability)
        • Can the manager affect the distribution conditioned on whatever other information is present ?
        • If so, then performance variable has information
        • Score i = effort/intelligence i + noise i + instrument i
      Antel and Demski, 1988, “The Controllability Principle in Responsibility Accounting,” The Accounting Review (October)
    • 130. Current Practice
      • No convergence of practice
      • 1/3 of UK firms use “Internal Forward Rates”
        • Corporate “buys forward” receipts in foreign currencies from the subsidiary at a guaranteed rate
      • 1/10 of UK firms involve local management in FX forecasting
      • 1/3 of UK firms subsequently revise their forecasted rates
      • Responsibility for translation gains/losses
        • 2/3 to parent company
        • 1/10 to subsidiary
        • Rest don’t use for performance evaluation?
      • Responsibility for transaction gains/losses
        • Nearly 1/2 to subsidiary
      • US firms are more likely to hold subsidiary managers responsible for both translation and transaction gains/losses
      • Gaps between theory and practice?
