University of California Risk Factors of Samsung Report
The purpose of this project is to apply what you have learned from the class readings and discussions and problems to a research situation. I choose Samsung. Please follow the example Adidas as the format.
You can write your report using bullet points. It has to be professional looking, however, and needs to be informative.
- Please locate the most recent annual report for your firm and find two risk factors that are mentioned regarding global operations. Most companies have this early on in their report (item 1 Risk Factors) and will talk about the economic environment in global markets, exchange rate challenges, foreign legal uncertainties, and international taxation. If you firm also files reports in the US, the report will be called 20-F (the equivalent to a 10-K for foreign filers) and you can find it on the sec.gov website. If your firm doesn’t file in the US, you can find their report on the company website. You need to be able to discuss the risk factors, e.g. what impact can they have on your firms operations, how can you minimize their impact, etc.?
