    When answering 'what impact would a diversification into textiles have on VGL's Stakeholders' how would you get evaluative skills in there? And would you only speak about the impact on them or include VGL too?

    It'll either be ratios or TSA - As TSA has apparently not came up before, its quite likely it will.
    Yeh TSA has not come up before the only reason i say decision trees also is because the case studies talks about decision trees.

    Creditors falling due after one year + Equity Shareholder funds = Capital Employed

    Capital employed = Net assets employed + long term liabilities (in this case 'creditors falling due after one year').

    This is also correct as Net assets employed and equity shareholders' funds have to balance (hence balance sheet).

    I really don't understand the maths to the diversification part. Michael suggests they need 200 tonnes processed each week... does this mean that they buy 200 tonnes of material and sell the 200 tonnes as clothing etc per week?

    Michaels guess of 200 tonnes processed is a terrible assumption by him, he means they need to PROCESS 200 tonnes of collected textiles a week (and then sell it off.)

    Going off the whole "4 new workers" thing aswell, it assumes that is like 50 tonnes per worker, which way too much. (See my above reply with the profitability assumptions)

    Capital employed is creditors falling due after one year added to net assets employed

    so for 2015 it is £109 million
    (don't treat the creditors as a negative when adding it)
    I thought capital employed are net asset employed?

    hi, did you get;

    2014= 2.52%
    2015 = 5.87%
    How did you get these ? Is this the ROCE? operating profit / capital employed x 100?

    You don't use operating profit, you use PBIT

    Add profit before taxation to interest...

    You need to add in the Long Term Liabilities to net assets employed to get total capital employed

    You need to add in the Long Term Liabilities to net assets employed to get total capital employed
    Alternatively you could use operating profit but you have to minus depreciation. This is the same as profit before taxation + interest. So your calculation would look like this:

    2015: (12.2 - 5.8 / 109) x 100

    Both are the same, which ever is easiest.
