922N assignmnet 2

Jump to: navigation, search

I have sent an email, regarding this assignmnet. We need to make a call. The latest update is that the financial information fro Tiger brands is available at their website. So in principle we can go for this assignmnet. Please let's have your comments or concerns--Luisaserra 15:58, 30 May 2010 (UTC)

Just read your email now. the suggestions from shumi, Jc & Evelyn are all good. but we need to look at the available information and if it addresses the assignment. Can we talk to the risk department of the suggested companies as the assignment requires? It will make the work a lot easier if you are able to get a reliable company in Uganda, since you are leading the assignment with shumi and shungu

Evelyn has sent an email to Shumi, stating she can get that meeting, I have been on the tigerbrand wesite and the financial info available with investor presentation is from 2002. The good thing here is that it is a South African company that operates in a South Africa enviroment and is listed,it will be more difficult for the lecturer to use a Uganda company. My new divisional manager is from Tiger brands and he is still an nonexecutive member of the board of Tiger brands, you can go on the website and is clearly stated, I will also get his critique on this assignment--Luisaserra 16:09, 30 May 2010 (UTC)

Luisaserra (talk)05:09, 31 May 2010

Then we can go ahead with Tiger brands

Akachi Ngwu (talk)05:12, 31 May 2010

I think we should have two alternatives. Tiger Brands and the Ugandan one.

Hove (talk)05:18, 31 May 2010

The Ugandan one can be the plan B then.

Thanks Luisa. Looks like we are heading toward Tiger arent we?

Victor.mensah (talk)05:14, 31 May 2010

I need to have everyone confortable with this decision, let's see where Jeremiah stands. Unfortunately Kaygo is not in the wiki and Shungu and Hove after logging in has been silent--Luisaserra 16:20, 30 May 2010 (UTC)

Luisaserra (talk)05:20, 31 May 2010

i've read all the comments on Tigerbrand it seems the relevant information is at arms reach,so lets proceed with it! sorry i'm late i just came in from the cattlepost!

Kay go (talk)05:26, 31 May 2010


Evelyn mentioned that she does have a couple of contacts in Tiger. I hope she can get us the interview

With MBL922 i think we both agree that we will use Tiger Brands and Evelyn will have to organise a meeting with Tiger Brands guys during or before study school. I think we should continue to the next agenda since we have a lot to be covered.

Hove (talk)05:28, 31 May 2010


I have seen the financials of Tiger Brands on their website for the past 7 years. Am concerned though on the stock price information. I believe we will need frequent stock price data for Tiger ie Daily stock prices for 7 years. I do not think that info is on the website. I've checked JSE....still checking. --Shumimlingo 16:06, 30 May 2010 (UTC)

Shumimlingo (talk)05:06, 31 May 2010

I believe this should be available info for investors we just need to find a way of getting it. I know Evelyn is not in the wiki today but we will have to contact her.--Luisaserra 16:12, 30 May 2010 (UTC)

Luisaserra (talk)05:12, 31 May 2010

But we need to find a way to set up a meeting with the company. It can be a conference call or something of similar sort.

JEREMIAH CHAPHXANYA (talk)05:16, 31 May 2010

Jeremiah, that is the email Evelyn sent, she said she can get that meeting for us, if it is a conference call or back at the study school we need to look at those possibilities, beacuse now the dates for the assignments have changed--Luisaserra 16:18, 30 May 2010 (UTC)

Luisaserra (talk)05:18, 31 May 2010

That's good if we can get that done by Evelyn.

JEREMIAH CHAPHXANYA (talk)05:19, 31 May 2010

I am getting confused about all these changes but it looks to me that one very good opportunity would be for the team to meet like the Friday b4 study school to interview the officer and even have a better feel of the company (if possible).

Victor.mensah (talk)05:20, 31 May 2010

Do we all need to meet with company?

Akachi Ngwu (talk)05:34, 31 May 2010

I suggest we give a week or so timeline on obtaining the stock data....in principle i agree with Tiger Brands but obtaining stock data its a deal breaker on this one. Usually stock brokers would have this info. Perhaps Evelyn could assist with some stock broker contacts.... --Shumimlingo 16:19, 30 May 2010 (UTC)

Shumimlingo (talk)05:19, 31 May 2010

I agree with Shumi, have also checked on the website, and seem not able to see the stock p[rice over the past 7 yrs.

JEREMIAH CHAPHXANYA (talk)05:13, 31 May 2010

Shumi, I do not know much about stock exchange, specially being born and bred in Mozambique a country with a socialist orienation for more that 20 years, but I believe if I want to invest I need to have share prices and histortical data, how can I get that on the stock exchange?--Luisaserra 16:16, 30 May 2010 (UTC)

Luisaserra (talk)05:16, 31 May 2010

Luisa, The people who assist investors are the various stock broker companies. They keep a record of share prices and performance etc. The Stock Exchange will also have info. --Shumimlingo 16:25, 30 May 2010 (UTC)

Shumimlingo (talk)05:25, 31 May 2010

share prices are open and available information to investors i do not think we should have difficulties getting the share prices for Tiger brands
