1. What is the amount of property and equipment on the balance sheet for the two most recent years? What is the amount of accumulated depreciation and the depreciation expense? What amounts are on the cash flow statement for the most recent year that relate to depreciation, gains and sales of property and equipment, and purchases and sale of property of equipment? What amounts are permitted for inclusion in the capitalized cost of property and equipment?

2. Looking at the footnote disclosures of the company, what are the individual components of property and equipment? For example, what are the amounts for land, building, equipment, accumulated depreciation, and so forth? How do companies account for nonmonetary exchange and dispositions of property and equipment?

3. Does the company have intangible assets? If so, what are the types of intangible assets (patent, copyrights, etc.) and their amounts? What is the amount of accumulated amortization and amortization expense? What amounts on the most recent cash flow statement relate to the purchase and sale of intangible assets? How do intangible assets differ from property and equipment? What costs do we include in intangible assets?

4. Does the company have goodwill? What are the footnote disclosures relating to goodwill and the related acquisition? Please also describe the calculation of goodwill and how we account for differences between fair value and book value of assets acquired.

5. What are the company’s depreciation methods? What is the range of estimated useful lives used for depreciating its assets? Does the company use the same depreciation methods for financial statements and tax returns? If not, please describe the methods used for tax purposes.

6. What are the company’s footnote disclosures relating to impairment? Please also describe how to determine whether an impairment exists and how to calculate the impairment loss.

Guidelines

  • Papers must be 7 to 10 pages in length. Use a 12-point font, with double spacing, and include a cover page, table of contents, introduction, body of the report, summary or conclusion, and works cited.
  • Even though this is not a scientific-type writing assignment, references are still very important. At least three authoritative, outside references are required (articles and web pages with anonymous authors are not acceptable). These should be listed on the Works Cited page.
  • Appropriate citation is required.
  • All DeVry University policies are in effect, including the plagiarism policy.
  • Papers are due on Sunday of Week 6 of this course.
  • Any questions about this paper can be discussed in the weekly Q & A Forum.
  • This paper is worth 125 total points and will be graded on quality of research topic, quality of paper information, use of citations, grammar, and sentence structure.

Best Practices

The following are best practices in preparing this paper.

  • Cover page: Include whom you prepared the paper for, who prepared it, and the date.
  • Table of contents: List the main ideas and sections of the paper and the pages where they are located. Illustrations should be included separately.
  • Introduction: Use a header on your paper. This will indicate that you are introducing the paper. The purpose of an introduction or opening is to

1. introduce the subject and why the subject is important;

2. preview the main ideas and the order in which they will be covered; and

3. establish the tone of the document.

Include in the introduction a reason for the audience to read the paper. Also include an overview of what you will cover and the importance of the material. (This should include or introduce the questions you are asked to answer in each assignment.)

  • Body of the report: Use a header with the name of the project. An example is, “The Development of Hotel X: A World Class Resort.” Proceed to break out the main ideas: State the main ideas, give the major points of each idea, and provide evidence. Show some type of division, such as separate, labeled sections; separate groups of paragraphs; or headers. Include the information you found during your research and investigation.
  • Summary and Conclusion: Summarizing is similar to paraphrasing but presents the gist of the material in fewer words than the original. An effective summary identifies the main ideas and the major support points from the body of the report; minor details are left out. Summarize the benefits of the ideas and how they affect the subject.
  • Works cited: Use the citation format specified in the Syllabus.

Additional hints on preparing the best possible project follow.

1. Apply a three-step process to writing: plan, write, and complete.

2. Prepare an outline of the research paper before going forward.

3. Complete a first draft and then go back to edit, evaluate, and make any changes required.

4. Use visual communication to further clarify and support the written part of the report. Examples include graphs, diagrams, photographs, flowcharts, maps, drawings, animation, video clips, pictograms, tables, and Gantt charts.
