Assessment for the Interim Assessment of International Financial Management
You are required to prepare a report of 2,500 words to the Finance Director (William Money) of Quick Nourish plc supermarket chain (QN) for presentation to the Directors to address concerns raised at the recent Board Meeting.


QN is a large supermarket based in the UK. The company operates mainly in Europe and the UK. About 60% of its purchases are paid for in dollars and sales are mainly in euros and pounds. Profit margins for QN are low at 3%, with an average shelf life or stock turnover of about 7 days for perishable foods and one month for longer life provisions.

The Marketing Director (Mr. Selby) commented that as matters stand QN is very exposed to changes in the value of the dollar. He noted that in May 2012 the dollar increased in value by over 5% against both the euro and the pound. He comments that: we sell something for £1 and it costs us 97 pence to buy paying in dollars. Then we find that the dollar costs more and we have to pay 97p x 1.05 = 101.85 pence or about 102 pence. So we sell for 100 pence and pay 102 pence. There then followed a discussion of the problem outlined by Mr. Selby.

At the end, William Money promised to circulate additional notes to the Directors in response to various concerns expressed at the meeting. The concerns were as follows

1) Mr. Brick, the Estates Director, remarked that he thought the IMF was supposed to ensure that the exchange rate did not move greatly. The purchasing Director Mr. Cheap thought that the IMF could not do this in the case of the dollar as its balance of payments on the current account was so poor.

The legal secretary Mrs. Innocent thought that the other Directors were making too much of the problem observing that the price of the dollar did on occasion go up but that it also went down and that on balance there was no effect. The Finance Director promised some notes on the international management of the dollar exchange rate, the recent behaviour of the dollar and
what it meant for QN.

2) Discussion turned to foreign supplies not paid for in dollars, but rather in the local currency. Mrs. Innocent, continuing her comments, observed that in cases where there was rampant inflation in the country the pricing problem observed by the Marketing Director was a real problem and we could not start increasing our prices of one product in a range merely because it was from a country with high inflation.

3) The Managing Director Mr. Bees turned to Mr. Money and suggested that QN should use “some clever finance” to solve the problems raised. Mr. Money asks you to prepare notes covering the following issues:
a. The value to QN of taking out short term derivatives
b. A comparison between futures and a forward rate
c. Whether options should be considered and a cost comparison with futures and forward strategies. Mr. Money asks that your presentation does not read like a textbook, but is intelligible to his fellow Directors and is relevant to QN. He tells you to use “those exchange rates I gave you last month” to illustrate, where needed.

Case Approach

Scientific Methodology

We use best scientific approach to solve case study as recommended and designed by best professors and experts in the World. The approach followed by our experts are given below:

Defining Problem

The first step in solving any case study analysis is to define its problem carefully. In order to do this step, our experts read the case two three times so as to define problem carefully and accurately. This step acts as a base and help in building the structure in next steps.

Structure Definition

The second step is to define structure to solve the case. Different cases has different requirements and so as the structure. Our experts understand this and follow student;s university guidelines to come out with best structure so that student will receive best mark for the same.

Research and Analysis

This is the most important step which actually defines the strength of any case analysis. In order to provide best case analysis, our experts not only refer case materials but also outside materials if required to come out with best analysis for the case.

Conclusion & Recommendations

A weak conclusion or recommendations spoil the entire case analysis. Our expert know this and always provide good chunks of volume for this part so that instructors will see the effort put by students in arriving at solution so as to provide best mark.

Assessment Criteria

Your answer should not exceed 2,500 words, word-processed (letter size 12, Times New Roman, 1.5 space); scripts that are excessively long (i.e. exceeding the limit by more than 10%) will not be read beyond the point of the word limit. The word limit applies to the main report only, and excludes exhibits, cover page, list of references,

The paper should include a cover page (which should give your student number, assignment name, date and number of words, but not your name), table of contents, numbered pages and a list of references. The body text should be fully referenced (Harvard Referencing System), with clear introduction, discussion and conclusion sections. Please note that assignment marks will also be based on aspects such as use of examples, figures, tables, illustrations and statistics that indicate wider/independent

One of the clear academic objectives of a Master’s level programme is to show in the paper that you have read, understood and “absorbed as your own” the many concepts associated with Operations Management. That is not the same as providing a summary of which author said what; good assignments discuss the literature in terms of themes or concepts. Try to structure your paragraphs so that the first sentence introduces the theme or concept discussed in the paragraph, and the paragraphs themselves should be grouped in such a way that your “story” flows in a structured,
balanced and comprehensible way.

Some “do’s” and “don’t” about style

• Do not “copy and paste” from books or other sources. If used, direct quotes should be few, short and in italics;
• Be very sparing of using simply expressions such as “in my opinion”; instead, put forward your argument as to why one approach may have more advantages than another. You might compare and contrast what different authors have to say about a given concept. We are looking for evidence of an analytical approach;

• Do not use a large number of in-text exhibits copied and pasted from authors.
• Turn in your paper on time. Meeting deadlines is critical in business, and late papers will be penalised. If you are requesting an extension, you must do so before the due date. Due to unpredictable Internet service, try to upload your paper a few days before the deadline;

• Upload your completed midterm as a .doc through the RKC system. Do NOT email it to your professor or post it to the forum. Submit only one file. Include any
• Excel analysis or other elements (if relevant) as images, not embedded files. Presentation style and clarity are important. We do not expect perfect English, but please proofread your work to eliminate confusing passages and major errors. Students often accidentally skip entire sections, which causes them to lose many points. Data should be clearly laid out in tabular format so that your approach and answer are both plainly evident.
