Financial Analysis

In this task you will prepare a presentation for the chief financial officer (CFO) to present to a bank vice president. The bank vice president will decide if the bank will approve a $1,000,000 funding request for the European expansion of Custom Snowboards Inc. currently under consideration. The bank has not confirmed it is willing to make the loan and is waiting for your presentation to either confirm or deny the loan. Assume the bank is willing to make the $1,000,000 loan with a 5-year term at 6.75% interest, but with a $300,000 compensating balance. The bank will make its assessment of the risk associated with the loan after your presentation.
