I have attached assignment as .doc. Jimmy Benchmarking_Homework_Statement-R1.doc Construction Finance, Accounting, and Risk Benchmarking Homework This is an individual effort For this paper assignment, you are asked to research from a financial perspective, two public construction companies of your choosing. Based upon your research, provide a 2-page paper discussing from a financial perspective which company is the “best” and why. Be sure to include an in depth analysis based on different financial ratios. Not all ratios need to be discussed, but at least two from each category (profitability, leverage, and efficiency) should be analyzed. Organize the paper as follows: Each paper should be organized in the same manner with the following sections: Introduction An introduction should be provided to present the topic to the reader. This section should provide a general background on your topic and answer questions such as: Who? What? When? Where? Why? How Much? Impact? The introduction should also state the related issue(s) that you will be addressing. Financial Ratios section will be the main body of your paper. This is where you will clearly identify three financial ratios and how they are used to assess a company. Furthermore, each student should identify a specific company as the “best” and then explain thorough the presentation of at least three financial ratios. The student should fully develop an argument and support with examples. Recommendation: This section is a clear and pointed recommendation based on the developed argument. Conclusions The conclusions state the significance of what you have learned through your investigation and preparation of the paper; it is not merely a summary of what has already been written. An explanation of why this topic is important to a contractor, or an engineer should also be included. References: Cite sources as they occur in the body of the paper by the author’s last name and the year of publication, such as (Sitzabee, 2008). Do not use footnotes at the bottom of the page. All of the sources should be listed alphabetically at the end of the paper in the references section. You should refer to a technical writing manual for the proper way to cite references. The overall length of each paper should be two pages or approximately 1200 words. Papers that are not two pages in length or are shorter than 1000 words or are longer than 1250 words will be penalized. The text of the paper should be single-spaced in a two column format and printed on the front and back of one piece of paper. Please use Times New Roman 11 point or 12 point font. Tables and figures are not required but you may include one or two if it is necessary. If you do choose to insert tables and/or figures, please label them as follows: Table 1. Example Table Caption (Center and number caption above table) Figure 1. Example Figure Caption (Center and number caption below figure) In addition to learning new material related to construction finance, another purpose of preparing papers is to help the student develop writing skills. Although this is not a creative writing course, or even a technical writing course, good communication is paramount to being an effective engineering and construction professional. The best way to develop these skills, particularly at the graduate school level, is through practice. Therefore, your papers will be graded for technical content as well as professional presentation.
