Project #35017 - ECON 510 TERM PROJECT

ADVANCED MANAGERIAL ECONOMICS  - ECON 510

Term Project (Syllabus Attached)

BOOK: Managerial Economics 12th ed, Mark Hirschey, 2009 ISBN 978-0-324-58886-6 

(11th ed should be fine too) 

 

Imagine I am your CEO and our company is planning to buy another company. Maybe we are a 

Berkshire Hathaway-type holding company, or maybe we are a more standard company seeking 

to purchase a competitor or complementary firm (supplier or distribution or something). 

Your assignment, if you choose to accept it, is to choose an industry and perform a complete 

analysis on a firm in that industry, with the goal of providing good, actionable, information to 

tell me whether we should proceed with this purchase/takeover/merger. 

Don’t worry about such things like “We can’ buy Microsoft or Apple because we can’t buy up all 

the stock”. If you want to profile Microsoft or Apple as part of this project for a fictitious 

purchase, that’s fine. 

What I want to know is: 

ï‚· The outlook for the industry/firm 

ï‚· An estimate of the demand for that product, and a forecast of sales/demand/revenues 

for the next 2 years. You can do a function of the form: Y=Product, or revenue, or sales, 

and X=Time if you wish. 

ï‚· The elasticity of demand for a product the firm sells. Taking your more complex demand 

function and logging the data. 

ï‚· Analysis of costs of the firm 

ï‚· The market structure and what that might mean for the project 

ï‚· Risk analysis, and 

ï‚· Cash flow analysis of the firm 

 

I want you to use the tools learned in this class to tell me all I need to know in order to make a 

good decision on what firm to buy. This means, gather sufficient data to do a good statistical 

regression analysis. Do NOT just rely on online data of 3-4 quarters or years. You need at least 

20 data points.
