Business Environment and Recording Transactions
posted by candy .
The proprietors of two businesses, L.L. Sams Company and Melinda Garcia Career Services, have sought business loans from you. To decide whether to make the loans, you have requested their balance sheets.
Solely on the basis of these balance sheets, to which entity would you be more comfortable lending money?
Impossible to answer without seeing the balance sheets.
Leo, relax (I know I was just to tired to type).

Rub your index fingers gently over a piece of very coarse sandpaper a few times and rate its coarseness on a scale from 1 very soft to 7 very coarse. After a minute or two, rub the same finger over the paper and again rate its coarseness. Did your perception of the coarseness change? How?
Target Corporation is currently seeking additional capital to expand its operations. Two companies have shown interest in providing additional capital.
Company #1 is interested in investing in the organization and, therefore, would like to have part ownership through the sale of new stock.
Company #2 is interested in providing a loan to the Target Corporation.
Both organizations need to know more about the financial stability of Target.
As an employee of Target, your supervisor needs you to write a memo in which you explain what information from the Target Corporation's financial statements will be highlighted when representatives of Target meet with each of these companies. In your memo, be sure to explain which information will be highlighted to Company #1 and which information will be highlighted to Company #2 and why. Explain any differences in the information that you have chosen to highlight
