However, in the case of Oscar’s intention to change the method of calculating the amortization expense for the relevant financial period, it can be said that this remedy is not critically conflicting with the betterment of the company. His action of change is actually desirable because it may increase net income, which is good for the business. However, the ethical dillema only starts because of the inclusion of his personal motives and interests that blurs professionalism and ethical decision making for the company.

In addition, the capital does not have to be repaid and does not involve an interest charge. The only reward that IPO investors seek is an appreciation of their investment and possibly dividends.
