Assignment 2: Foreign Currency Risk
Due Week 9 and worth 310 points

Albert, CEO of XYZ, Inc., desires to expand the company’s sales through exports to three (3) foreign subsidiaries. Albert knows that the target subsidiaries are located in countries that require transactions to be denominated in the local currencies. Albert has researched foreign currency risk and knows that there is accounting exposure in accounting statements, operating exposure in future cash flows, and transaction exposure in outstanding obligations. Albert does not understand how these risks apply to XYZ, Inc. under his proposal or if there are any mitigating risk strategies available. Albert requests you, the head of the Risk Management division, to prepare a report that he can present to the Board of Directors on the potential foreign currency risk if XYZ, Inc. expands sales into these markets. XYZ, Inc.’s reporting currency is the U.S. dollar and the subsidiaries would purchase the merchandise as inventory items.

Note: You may create and / or make all necessary assumptions needed for the completion of this assignment.

Write a three to five (3) page paper in which you:

  1. Specify      accounting exposure, operating exposure, and transaction exposure.      Determine the main financial statement effects of each type of exposure if      XYZ, Inc. expands as proposed. 
  2. Determine      two (2) types of hedges regarding foreign exchange risk, in general, and      recommend the most advantageous risk mitigation strategy for XYZ, Inc.      Provide support for your rationale. Note: Refer to      Chapter 9 of the textbook for more information on corporate strategies      regarding hedging foreign exchange risk.
  3. Determine      the main accounting assumptions underlying each currently used method      (e.g., current rate method and temporal method). Determine the fundamental      differences in balance sheet exposure from the application of each method.
  4. Suggest      the translation method that XYZ, Inc. should use in order to minimize      balance sheet exposure. Provide support for you choice.
  5. Compare      the U.S. GAAP approach to the IFRS approach of translating foreign      currency financial statements. Determine the main similarities and      differences between the two (2) methods of translation. Assuming one (1)      of the subsidiaries of XYZ, Inc. is located in a highly inflationary      country, determine the appropriate translation method under FASB and      provide the theoretical justification for your response.          
  6. Use at      least two (2) quality academic resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia      and other Websites do not qualify as academic resources.
