Danle Case

...Case Introduction Danle Corporation (Danle), a public company engaging in vehicles manufacturing business used asbestos in the past three years. In fiscal year 2008 and 2009, Danle received two similar complaints about mechanics suffered severe illness due to the exposure to asbestos from the parts manufactured by Danle. Danle disclosed neither of the lawsuits litigations in the 2008 & 2009 Form 10-K, even though the external counsel offered evidence showing the potential possible liability for Danle in Dec 2009. For the three Fiscal Year 2010’s Form 10-Qs (1st, 2nd & 3rd quarters), Danle disclosed related information about the potential loss in the footnotes and consolidated financial statements in 2010’s Form 10-K.

Danle Corp

...Case 10-5 Danle Corporation Danle Corporation (Danle), a public company, conducts business activities primarily related to the design, development, manufacture, and assembly of passenger cars, recreational and sport-utility vehicles, minivans, and trucks. Danle used asbestos in the manufacturing of brake shoes and gaskets because of its heat resistance. During the past three years, two claims were filed against Danle by automotive mechanics and surviving family members seeking recovery because of their alleged exposure to asbestos. The following information summarizes Danle’s exposure to the two asbestos claims over the past three years. The amount of damages sought in the complaints is considered material to Danle’s financial statements for each period presented. Fiscal Year 2008 In November 2008, Danle was served a complaint in the U.S. District Court alleging that 50 mechanics suffered severe illnesses that led to death or disability as a result of exposure to asbestos from parts manufactured by Danle. The case was brought against Danle as a class-action lawsuit seeking damages totaling approximately $100 million. Danle did not believe the asbestos used in the manufacturing of the brake shoes and gaskets led to the mechanics’ illnesses and immediately retained external legal counsel to vigorously defend the claim made against Danle in this complaint. Since this legal matter was in its early stages of discovery and development, Danle determined that (1) the risk of......

...Barbara Antoine-Wiltshire SCI201-1502B-09 Phase 2 – Discussion Board Professor: Nicholas Kusina May 27, 2015 For this assignment I chose Coconuts as my food. Coconuts are fruits, they are large round with a hard husk shell, medium brown in color, has a rough hairy surface (Purdue University, 2014). They are called “Drupes” by Botanists; a drupe is a fruit with a hard stony covering that enclosed the seed (Everyday Mysteries). The coconut is part of the Arecaceae or palm family is a large, distinct family of monocotyledonous plants, containing up to 4000 species distributed among 200+ genera. The coconut palm, Cocos nucifera L., is undoubtedly the most economically important plant in the family, as it is used as both an ornamental and a food crop (Mark’s Fruit-Crops.com website). The coconut originated between the Indian and Pacific Oceans in the 15th century by Portugese explorers, when they found the fruit they described the shell as a coco, or “grinning monkey” because of the 3 dark spots at its base which looks like a merry face. From then it was referred to as the “coconut”. The nut can float long distances on ocean currents for months and will still germinate when it makes it to the beach. The coconut did not become known to the Western World until the 15th century. In the middle ages the fruit was very rare and cherished, that the shells were polished and mounted in gold (Coconut Republic). Coconuts are used in many different products. The white flesh......

...Unit 3 IP Mary Richardson American Intercontinental University BUSN300-1104B-08 December 5, 2011 Harold Graff Unit 3 IP Reasoning There are many different opportunities for these three firms to increase their growth in this very competitive marketplace. One of the largest car manufacturers in the world is located in Japan which is Toyota. Toyota’s employees believe in the high technology and innovation to provide their products to their customers. However, they should invest more money and their attention more to manufacturing more of the eco-friendly cars ("Business Overview", 2011). Another large car manufacture that is located in the United States is General Motors (GM). General Motors would benefit more in this competitive market if they paid more attention on innovation and technological development to increase their customer base (2011). The third auto manufacturer which is also located in the United States is Ford. Ford should focus more on attracting more customers in order to expand in this competitive market. If Ford could attract more customers, they could expand their business and bring in more revenue ("Ford Vehicles", 2011). Marketing Opportunity I would categorize the marketing opportunity for Toyota as a low hanging fruit. I made this classification because under the low hanging fruit opportunity there is less effort needed from the firm to target and help develop the market. There is more of an investment in the use and development of the......
