Financial analyst

You work as a financial analyst at a large automobile corporation that   occasionally makes acquisitions of smaller companies that specialize in the   production and assembly of small component parts. In order to achieve vertical   integration of its newest sports sedan model, the company is evaluating a few   manufacturing companies that have experienced strong financial performance in   the past few years. These companies would make excellent acquisitions due to   the  nature and quality of the product and the anticipated ease of transition.   You  have been tasked to evaluate these companies from a financial perspective   and  choose one. To do this, you need to brush up on a few concepts by addressing the  following topics: 

  1.    Describe what a crediting rate/score is. Should this be a factor in  evaluating companies? 
  2. The firm will need to raise funds immediately for the acquisition, and debt will be used. Should the firm borrow on a long-term or short-term basis?  Why? 
  3. Explain the effect, if any, inflation rates will have on the purchase? How  significant is this factor? 
  4. Define the relationship between yield curves and the term structure of   interest rates. 
  5. Explain what would happen to interest rates if a new process was developed   that allowed automobiles to run off oil that was formulated based on  lemonade?   The technology used to convert this liquid to gas would be pricey  but well   worth it. What impact would this technology have on interest  rates?    
  6. Discuss what ratios should be used to assess the financial health of the potential acquisition? 

Your  completed case study must be at least two pages in length, and you must   use at  least your textbook as a reference. Other references may be used as   needed. Any  information from a source used must be cited and referenced in APA   format.
