CHAPTER 1 Question 4 Sarbanes-Oxley (LO4) In response to the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, many small firms in the United States have opted to “go dark” and delist their stock. Why might a company choose this route? What are the costs of “going dark”? Answer The reason many firms have decided to “go dark” due to SOX is that it can be very costly to firms to remain complaint to the many requirements. Also, by going dark is allows companies to avoid the disclosure requirements of SOX and allows them to keep their financials private. However, by going dark this does eliminate the use of raising capital easily through the open market by issuing stock. This also can deter investors from investing for concerns that financial figures could be hidden or miss represented. Question 6 Goal of Financial Management (LO2) What goal should always motivate the actions of a firm’s financial manager? Answer The goal that should always motivate the actions of a firm’s financial manager is to maximize the current value per share of existing stock. If the company does not trade stock, then the goal is to increase the owners’ equity. Either way is to maximize the existing owners’ equity in the firm. Question 12 Ethics and Firm Goals (LO2) Can our goal of maximizing the value of the stock conflict with other goals, such as avoiding unethical or illegal behavior? In particular, do you think subjects like customer and employee safety, the environment, and the general good of society fit in this framework, or are they essentially ignored? Think of some specific scenarios to illustrate your answer. Answer Yes, the goal of maximizing the value of the stock can conflict with other goals, such as avoiding unethical or illegal behavior. These reasons are the cause for the government to create regulations like OSHA and SOX. Greed is the biggest contributor to this. Management tries to work in the best interest of its owners, but management will either work at times for their best interest or the best interest of its shareholders without concern. Management may create unsafe work environments to decrease cost and increase profits. This then can help to increase managements compensation. I think as we have evolved that companies have tried to include customers, employee safety, the environment and the general good of society in their framework. I think part of this is social media can hurt companies that may not adhere to these areas. Companies today try to have a better presence in the world. To show that they care and are making a difference in society. Disney for example donates millions to children’s hospitals around the world. Other companies are working to reduce their carbon footprint because it’s better for the environment even though regulation is not requiring it.
