Based on the data provided by International Air Transport Association’s (IATA), the report indicated that passenger and cargo traffic would double in Asia by the year of 2010. The increase in the demand of air transportation is an opportunity for Avicular Controls to expand the market in Asia. Not only would the deal benefit ACI from lifting its prestige, but also generating the long term revenue of maintenance. In addition to Avicular, Rockwell Collins and Honeywell had capacity to compete with Avicular. Rockwell Collins had experience dealing with the Pakistani government on several military contracts, and considered the most competitive player to ACI. If ACI could defeat Rockwell Collins and Honeywell to win the deal with PAI, ACI would show its different role in global aerospace industry than Rockwell Collins. Based on the conversation between Gabriel and Peter, Gabriel thought the acceptance of rupee is an opportunity that changes the way of using dollars as base currency; however, he didn’t consider the Pakistani economy which would lose the profit of the deal. Although Pakistan alleged that the domestic currency is control by the local government, the historical event doesn’t’ support the allegation.

Ratio Analysis

...Current ratio: ACI | Ind. Avg. | 1.13 | 1.43 | Interpretation: In the year 2008 the ACI’s current asset is 1.13 times higher than its current liabilities. In 2008 the company’s current ratio is low than its Industry average. But it’s not very low. So we can say that the company doesn’t keep an excess current asset in hand. So we can say that the current liquidity position of the company is not very bad. Quick ratio: ACI | Ind.avg | .72 | .63 | Interpretation: In the year 2008 the company’s current asset excluding inventory is .72 times higher than its current liabilities. The company’s quick ratio is higher than the industry average. In 2008 the industry average is .63 times whereas ACI have a quick ratio of .72 times.

Working capital: = current asset- current liabilities =4989161667-4400784166=588377501 ACI had a working capital of $588377501 in 2008. Evaluation: Looking at the above ratios we are certain the company had enough liquid asset to cover up its short term liabilities in 2008, however it is also visible that the company was holding up lot of liquid asset such as cash rather than investing it. Asset management Ratio: Inventory turnover: ACI | Ind . avg. | 2.18 | 3.67 | Interpretation: In the year 2009 the company had sold out and restocked its inventory 2.18 times.
