Please prepare an Annual Report for your company. Your report should include the following:

1. Title Page, Table of Contents
A title page that includes the name of your industry, company name, the names of the co-managers (with student numbers), date and name of the instructor.
A table of contents with page numbers.
A brief review of the financial performance of your company during the time you and your co-managers have run the company.

2. Review of Financial performance (10 marks)

This review should consist of charts showing the following:
Trends in the company's annual total revenues
Trends in the company's annual earnings per share (EPS)
Trends in the company's annual return on equity investment (ROE)
Trends in the company's annual credit rating
Trends in the company's year-end stock price
Trends in the company's annual image rating

You may copy the bar graphs showing your company’s trends for the above six measures from the Performance Summary.

You are expected to use the charts to form the context of your written analysis. NEVER include a chart/table that is not discussed. You can also create additional charts or tables if you feel that they will enhance your report.

3. Strategic Vision (5 marks)
A section describing the company’s strategic vision.

4. Performance target forecasting (10 marks)

A section that shows what performance targets for EPS, ROE, credit rating, image rating and year-end stock price you and your co-managers would set for each of the next two years (assuming the simulation were to continue). Provide support for your forecasted performance targets.

5. Company’s competitive strategy in entry-level cameras (10 marks)

A section that sets forth your company's competitive strategy in entry-level cameras in some detail and how that strategy has evolved over the years you have managed the company. The length of this section will also be a function of how varied your company's strategy in entry-level cameras was from geographic region to geographic region, such that your company is pursuing a meaningfully different competitive strategy in some regions versus others. If you did not produce any entry-level cameras, focus on item#6.

6. Company’s competitive strategy in multi-featured cameras (10 marks)

A section that sets forth your company's competitive strategy in multi-featured cameras in some detail and how that strategy has evolved over the years. Again, the length of this section will also be a function of how varied your company's strategy in multi-featured cameras was from geographic region to geographic region, such that your company is pursuing a meaningfully different competitive strategy in some regions versus others. If you did not produce any multi-featured cameras, focus on item#5.

7. Competitors’ analysis (10 marks)

A section showing (1) companies you consider to be your strongest/closest competitors in entry-level cameras as of the last year or two of the simulation, and (2) companies that are your strongest/closest competitors in the multi-featured cameras as of the last year or two of the simulation. Again, if you only produced entry-level cameras, focus on (1), whereas if you only produced multi-featured cameras, focus on (2).

8. Strategy to ‘out-compete’ closest competitors (10 marks)

One or more sections detailing the actions you would take to out-compete the close rivals identified in item#7 above, over the next two…
