This was done with the help of a weighted average unlevered beta, the market risk premium and the risk free rate. The risk free rate of 5.85 % has been acquired from the 30 year T bond rates. The beta was found out using the three other comparable companies and their unleveraged betas.

The Airlines was inaugurated as relaxed informal airline. Sir Richard was open-minded, amiable, and generous with his management team, imaginative, audacious and exclusive in his thoughtfulness. Initially started as a low-cost carrier, the company improved its services to turn itself into a “new-world carrier” as described by themselves (Virgin Blue media release, 2011, para. 2).However all these faltered when Qantas’ past marketing manager took over during 2011. The airline is financially weak and its share price has slumped.
Accompanying this memo is a risk analysis I have conducted for New England Seafood Company. The risk analysis I have conducted will show which weighted average cost of capital would be best to use in evaluating the project along with how New England Seafood Company could utilize the land if the project is accepted. A 10% cost of capital will result in a positive net present value but the coefficient of variation will be much higher than New England’s average coefficient of variation. A lower or higher cost of capital could under or over value the project and risks involved. I would consider this project as high risk and suggest that New England Seafood Company not get into the catfish market.

Nok Air has two major hubs located in Don Mueang international airport, which is a central domestic airport, and in Chiang Mai. A key competitive advantage that leads Nok Air to be the top budget domestic airline and to gain higher market share is using the product differentiation. Nok Air differentiates itself from other competitors in terms of routes and periods. The firm offers a variety of routes and periods to passengers to enjoy with Nok Air compared to other competitors in the market of low-cost airline. Expanding flying route is one of the firm’s strategies to serve more passengers. As a result, Nok Air is often the first choice in customer’s mind. In addition, by reaching the destination where its competitors cannot, Nok Air can gain valuable benefits. Since there is no competitor in that destination, Nok Air is the monopoly in that specific area. As a consequence, the firm can compete in price and can set any level of price that Nok Air prefers. Another key advantage that Nok Air has is the offering more weight of baggage. This is what Nok Air can offer better than its competitors. However, the disadvantage is the current Nok Air’s operating cannot generate enough profit. Since Nok Air positions itself as “premium low-cost airline”, the firm is now facing the high cost. The costs include fuel engine price, the premium onboard service, foods and beverages, the cost of offering high weight of baggage, and so on. Also, as Nok Air has to hedge fuel engine from Thai Airways International Public Company Limited, it mainly drives Nok Air to have the higher cost, and it results in decreasing the profit (“Broken Wing Nok Air,” 2008). However, the firm cannot increase passenger ticket price. Otherwise, it will be inconsistent with Nok Air’s position. To solve such a problem, Nok Air should supply fuel by itself to maintain the cost
