Accounting: David Miller

...1. David Miller is not unique in that he fits the profile of most white collar criminals. White collar criminals look like everyone else in the business world, some are well liked and they seem to be ideal employees. They work long hours and never take vacation but they are most likely working on the constant struggle to conceal their fraud. It is for these reasons that it made Mr. Miller hard to detect. His employers thought he was putting in the extra mile when he would work long hours and he was said to do outstanding work. Most of this was most likely a ploy to cover his tracks. This coupled with Mr. Miller being a very likeable person proved to make his transgressions very hard for his employers to detect. 2. Mr. Miller committed the various fraud schemes by stealing money from his employers through forged checks. In order to forge the checks, Mr. Miller himself would sign the checks or he would trick colleagues into signing their names to checks requiring two authorizing signatures. He would do this by asking them to sign the checks just in case the company needed to authorize a payment while they were on vacation. In order to conceal the fraud, Mr. Miller would retrieve the canceled checks from the bank reconciliation and destroy the canceled checks he used to siphon money. The amount stolen was charged to a business unit’s expense account in order to balance the company’s books. Since Mr. Miller was stealing the money through forges checks, he would simply......

Jones Model & Modified Jones Model

...Jones Model & Modified Jones Model Theory and Practice What is Earning Management? Earning management is the process that one firm’s manager presents the finical statement in his favorable way rather the real performance in a certain period. “Earnings management occurs when managers use judgment in financial reporting and in structuring transactions to alter financial reports to either mislead some stakeholders about the underlying economic performance of the company, or to influence contractual outcomes that depend on reported accounting numbers.” (Healy and Wahlen, Accounting Horizon, 1999) Earning management is generally happened within the generally accepted accounting principle (GAAP) choice, under the GAAP, firms have the flexibility to make their accounting choices and required to do estimations on their finical report. The intention of the “flexibility “is to make finical statements can by more accurately present a firm’s operating result in a certain period, companies have to estimate numbers (such as expense) based on their assumptions for the future, but the problem is that GAAP doesn’t have clear boundary to define what is a normal estimation (legal) and what is an extreme estimation (illegal). Therefore as long as the manager has logically explaining of those assumptions, then their estimation is legal. By definition, earning is the sum of operating cash flow and non-cash earning (accruals). Thus, if a manager wants to manipulate a firm’s earning,......

David Jones Financial Performance

...Executive Summary David Jones is an iconic Australian retailer, opened in Sydney 1838. This report considers the 2013 Annual Report and the financial performance for 2012 and 2013. The company operates in the retail trade sector with operations focussing on Department Stores (representing approximately 65% of earnings) and the associated Financial Services (representing approximately 35% of earnings). The department store sector is slowly declining as consumers move a larger portion of their household spending into online sales. Additionally, the incumbent stores (David Jones and Myer particularly) are being challenged by the arrival of well financed international competitors to the Australian market. The company has taken some strong leaps to maintain market share including building an Omni Channel capability, improvement in inventory management, reduction of its already low debt and working with suppliers to harmonising pricing. The report considers the financial performance of the company through the evaluation of financial ratios for profitability, efficiency, productivity, solvency and market performance. Overall the company currently is a profitable business with low gearing, high (but declining) sales and productive workforce. The Return on Equity improved from 37.5% in 2012 to 37.8% in 2013, positively confirming that many of the changes implemented by management during this period have been successful. During this same period revenues declined from......

...n the past several years, Jones Electrical Distribution is profitable, but it is in the condition of cash shortage. With its 2007’s sales go up, Jones need borrow more money to help its rapid development. Then he got a maximum line of credit $350,000. With our analysis report, we help Jones to choose whether to take advantage of 2% trade discount, we can observe that Jones’credit line will be $318,000 without discount, not $387,000 with this 2% discount. Problems Statement Jones Electrical Distribution’s current condition is not only cash shortage but also under rapid sales grows’ effect. Why this profitable firm needs to increase its borrowing, what kinds of strategies Jones Electrical Distribution will choose, and what his estimate of the loan needs is. These are the problems we will talk about bellows. Data Analysis 1. According to the balance sheet and sources and uses statements (appendix 1), we can see that the line of credit payable increases every year, because Jones needs more and more funds to support the needs of working capital and invest to long-lived assets such as plant, property and equipment to support higher sales levels. We can see that Jones used its profits (changed in Net Worth), cash and short-term debt to support the needs of working capital and the increase of inventory (probably to support higher sales levels). The reduction in long-term debt is a use of funds because Jones is repaying a loan. The decrease of cash is a source of funds to......

David

...Ren November 26, 2012 David The iconic sculptures of David created by both Italian artists, Michelangelo of the High Renaissance and Donatello of the Early Renaissance are similar yet different in several ways. As with most art created during these time periods, the sculptures tell the Bible story from the Old Testament about David and Goliath. In this story, David, an Israelite, battled Goliath, a Philistine, and killed him with a simple slingshot and then David’s own sword allowing for David to claim a victory for the Israelites. The similarities start with the pose. Both the artists show David in a similar pose. Both statues depict David as a warrior. Both figures are standing and are predominately nude. Both sculptures are positioned in a contrapposto pose. Both statues show some form of a soldier’s tools such as the helmet, boots, and sword in Donatello’s piece, and the stones from the sling shot in Michelangelo’s piece. Both likenesses of David depict the concept of humanism in that they both display within their likenesses a sense of “self-contained, even heroic individualism (Sayre, 2012) that perfectly captures the humanist spirit. It is from this point on the sculptures begin to have stark contrasts. Let’s focus first on the physical differences. The bronze David created by Donatello is that of a younger msn or teen age boy. It is definitely more feminine looking or waifish than that of Michelangelo’s work. His statue of David is much more......

Corporate Governance Evaluation of David Jones Ltd, Billabong International Ltd, Ten Ltd and Energy World Corporation Ltd

...Furthermore, there have been numerous attempts to define what constitutes ‘good corporate governance’ and to provide guidelines in order to enhance the quality of corporate governance. It must, however, be acknowledged that while everyone advocates and wants corporations to maintain ‘good corporate governance’, measuring the quality of corporate governance structures of the Australian companies has been, at best, very difficult. The major contribution of this report is to develop a simple and effective measurement model to rate the corporate governance structures of four companies. In effect, this report hopes to shed light on factors that should be taken into account in order to make sound investment decisions. The report concludes that David Jones would be the best investment decision amongst the four companies. The rest of the report is structured as follows. Section 1 details our ‘Corporate Governance Assessment Model’, comprising of six governance-related factors and associated measures. Section 2 outlines our assessment of the corporate governance quality of each of the four companies, as well a brief description of the company. Section 3 shows our firm’s conducted comparison of the four corporate governance structures. The final section includes the bibliography and appendix which supported our analysis.
