Instructions to prepare for this assessment
You will select a listed company from an Aotearoa New Zealand context and/or an Iwi/Māori organisation to use as case studies. Your selection will need to be based on your ability to access the appropriate financial and reporting documents to critically analyse.
Using your selected case studies and referring to relevant literature to support your analyses, prepare a report that critically analyses the financial decision making by interpreting the financial statements each Your report will evaluate the profitability of the chosen organisation(s) via various valuation models,
critically analyse working capital decisions, capital budgeting decisions, and make corresponding recommendations for improving future profitability.
Using your selected case studies your report will also critically analyse differences in financial decisionmaking considerations for Iwi/Māori organisations.
Based on the assignment instruction, you are required to select a listed company from an Aotearoa New Zealand context and/or an Iwi/Māori organisation to use as case studies.
My understanding is that the company must be a listed company, which you can search from NZSE (NZX) website. It will preferably be a company that has Iwi or Maori values for its operations and management. If you select a company that you could not identify any Iwi and Maori value in its operations and management, then you must discuss why the Iwi and Maori values are unidentifiable or why the company does not adopt any Iwi and Maori value. For Iwi/Maori values, you can learn them on this website. Remember that it does not have to be a Iwi/Maori owned company.
