Question description

For this discussion, you will examine how companies finance their expansion into the global marketplace. You will look at a current example of global expansion and consider the financing of the expansion.

First, read Chapters 15 and 16 in your text, as well as the required module resources. You will also need to research current financial news on the internet or in print (for example, Bloomberg, The Economist, The Wall Street Journal, or the Financial Times—note that the SNHU Shapiro Library has a subscription to these publications, but the data is on a three-day to one-week delay; however, for this discussion, it is quite adequate).

Next, find a current (in the last two to three years) financial article describing a company that has expanded globally. You can also use foreign multinational corporations (MNCs) that are expanding to the U.S. market.

Post a link to your selected article in the discussion board, summarizing your reading of the article, and, additionally, address the following in your initial post:

  • In which country is the MNC headquartered and to which country is it expanding?
  • How did the MNC finance its global expansion (for example, did it raise debt or issue extra shares)? If the article did not specify, you can take a look at the MNC’s financial statements.
  • Do you think that it was a successful and beneficial expansion? Why or why not?

In responding to your peers, provide your view on the MNC they discussed, including the financial methods the company used and your own thoughts on the success of the MNC’s expansion.

experiences, quality roasting, and sourcing, as well as serving quality coffee (Marques, 2008).
The rapid growth of the corporation seems unstoppable and it has sought to expand its operations
in the Republic of China. Perhaps it the zeal for expansion may stop if its store expansion
strategy became unsustainable and imploded in the financial crisis.
