Assignment 1: LASA: IPO Presentation & MyAccountingLab Post-Tests
This assignment will consist of two parts.
Part I: IPO Presentation:
You work for a medium sized privately held electronics firm which is considering transitioning to a publically held organization. Your boss found out that you were taking business courses at Argosy University and has asked you to prepare a presentation for upper level management to explain the process by which a privately held company would transition to publicly held company. He has asked you to describe the general accounting processes involved in establishing an initial public offering (IPO), including but not limited to accounting for all assets, liabilities and equities of the firm. Prepare a 15-20 slide professional MS PowerPoint presentation which covers the following:
Use the notes section in MS PowerPoint to explain your talking points. Use at least two charts and two additional graphics which support your points. Utilize at least three references (one of which may be your text) in your presentation.
Part II: My Accounting Lab:
In each module of this course, you will complete textbook exercises and problems using MyAccountingLab. The exercises and problems in this assignment provide real-world examples that give you an opportunity to apply your knowledge of the concepts covered in prior modules.
You will be given the opportunity to take these post-tests a maximum of three times. You will have until Week 5, Day 5 to complete you final submission. Due to the ability to attempt this assignment multiple times, it is recommended that you complete your first attempt early in the module in order to provide yourself additional time to complete your second or third attempt if needed. Since this assignment reviews items covered in prior modules, it is also recommended that you review your prior My Accounting Lab assignments, as well as any feedback provided by your instructor prior to completing Part II of this assignment.
