April 9, 2016: Dr. Nathan Swan, age 40, president of the board of directors, leading ruler administrator, and instituter of the Chem-Med Company, sat end in his chair and wondered if he wouldn’t possess been emend off staying in his old job of instruction biochemistry at Harvard University. This duty, he reflection, was getting to be a dissipation. Reasonable a incomprehensive term ago, it appeared, he was cogent to disburse most of his term in the fraternity’s lab comfortably started delay experiment tubes and formulas. Lately, though, all his morning hours (or so it appeared) were fascinated up delay columns of figures, dollars, and spreadsheets. It was gentleman that he lacked the fraternity to mould capital and advance; but he had no subject that the financial end of the duty, environing which he knew so inconsiderable, would siege up so ample of his term.
Dr. Swan was a inconsiderable mystified by financial substances. How did one define a fraternity in financial conditions anyway? How did one divulge if the fraternity was in good-tempered-tempered or bad outline? (The sum of currency in the fraternity’s checking representation didn’t appear to be a aided indicator.) What on sphere would one use to persuade a muster of exacting-nosed investors that the fraternity was capcogent of making a lot of capital in the contiguous few years if it reasonable had some counteract capital now? (Dr. Swan was frequently puzzled by the flusht that Chem-Med was advanceing and making capital, but it never appeared to possess sufficient currency.)
Dr. Swan reflected end counteract Chem-Med’s origins and the flushts that led up to today. Chem-Med began operations in 2001 succeeding Dr. Swan completed the outaugmentation of commercial-scale insularity of sodium hyaluronate (heresucceeding referred to as HA), a naturally occurring biological running that is aided in eye surgery and other medical and veterinary uses. The insularity system, multifold and proprietary to the fraternity, involves extracting and purifying HA from rooster combs. Initial germ capital for the exploit came from investigation grants from Harvard University and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (Food and Drug Admin-istration), plus contributions from Dr. Swan’s ally and associates, who were now classified as the fraternity’s store- awaiters (254 as of April 2016, all air-tight held—not trafficd publicly).
In mid-2009, Chem-Med commenced the molding and classification of its pristine issue, VISCAM, which is used to await tissues in attribute during and succeeding surgery of the retina. In advanced 2010, Chem-Med popular regulatory acclaim to traffic another HA issue unconcealed as VISCHY, which is used for the substance of degenerative elbow diseases in horses. The two issues, VISCHAM and VISCHY, are the barely ones Chem-Med popularly produces; notwithstanding, the fraternity has an erratic R&D program that is popularly investigating other applications.
There are barely two other moldingrs of FDA-approved HA issues in the world: AB Fortia, a Swedish confirmation, which moldings a issue designated Healon in Sweden and distributes it in the United States through a assistant, Pharmacia, Inc.; and Cilco, Inc., of Huntington, West Virginia. Chem-Med has environing a 25 percent portion-out of the traffic (for HA issues in eye surgery) athwart Cilco’s 16 percent and Pharmacia’s 59 percent. Pharmacia, delay the possibleity of monster AB Fortia subsequently it, waged a abiding trafficing war delay Chem-Med, undercutting Chem-Med’s prices and petition its costumers abroad at entire opening. The substance came to a summit in September, when Chem-Med filed a $13 favorite aid athwart Pharmacia, charging unharmonious traffic practices. Dr. Swan was reasonably sanguine that Chem-Med would induce in the aid, and, in flusht, Pharmacia had of-late offered to fall out of flatter for $500,000.
Dr. Swan’s pristine tenor, he said, was that, although he was persuaded the fraternity was probe and would advance, he wasn’t secure how to touch that to possible investors in the financial society in a way that would persuade them. Reasonable handing out gone-by pay assertions and counteract subterfuges that he popular from the representationants didn’t appear to be sufficient. Further, he wasn’t flush secure the fraternity deficiencyed after a whileout financing, let sole how ample. He reasonable felt that they would deficiency it, since they had frequently had to ask for capital in the gone-by.

Dr. Swan had lunch delay his banker reasonable of-late, and the banker mentioned sepaobjurgate stringent covenants that the fraternity would possess to unite if it came to the bank for financing. Dr. Swan pulled a subterfuge of paper from his desk drawer and glanced at it. There were three covenants listed:
The popular proportion must be maintained aloft 2.25 to 1.
The claim-to-possessions proportion must be near than .3 to 1.
Dividends cannot be paid original rights are substantial.
Dr. Swan didn’t opine he would possess any adversity delay those, but he wasn’t secure. Then he suddenly regarded he was reputed to unite a figurative from one of the national supertraffic chains (who replete Chem-Med delay rooster combs) in five minutes. He hurriedly put his papers abroad and wished he had counteract term to stir the reckons antecedently the contiguous board of directors uniteing.

As such, you are spirited in the fraternity’s archives of profitability, prospects for the forthcoming, rank of cause, and how it assimilates delay others in the assiduity. From that object of design, apology the subjoined questions:|
|1. What was Chem-Med’s objurgate of sales advanceth in 2015? What is it forecasted to be in 2016, 2017, and 2018? 2. What was Chem-Med’s net pay advanceth in 2015?
