Assume that the operating rental commitment for 2009 due between 1-5 years is distributed equally over the years 2011-2014, i.e. 2700m/4= $675m. The commitment due beyond year 5 in total is $1186m. The number of years beyond year 5 is calculated by dividing the total amount of commitments due beyond year 5 (> 2014) by the amount of commitments due in year 5, i.e.1186/675=1.757=2 years. This means the total discount period equals 5 years + 2 years = 7 years. Assume that for the years beyond year 5, payments are also distributed equally.
Payment schedule (perspective from 2009) | t= | Payment | Present value | 2009 | 0 | 0 | 0 | 2010 | 1 | 798 | 725.5 | 2011-2016 | 2~7 | 675 | 2672.5 | | | Net present value | 3398 | Liability:
From the 2009 perspective, payments of $798m are due in the year 2010. One part refers to interests that Qantas has to pay on the liability (10% x 3398 = 340m). The remaining difference (798 – 340 = $458 m) reduces the value of liability. Hence, in 2010, the liability equals 3398-458= $3058 m . Right of use asset: In 2009, the right of use asset is also 3398 million. Life of leases is assumed to equal the total discount period, i.e. 12 years. The right of use asset is amortised on a straight line basis.
In 2010, the right of use asset is therefore amortised by 3398/12 = $283m. Therefore, the right of use asset is $3115m ($3398-$283). Appendix 2.1 Balance Sheet Adjustments for 2010
Total assets (adj) = total assets (reported) + NPV of operating lease – 1 year of amortisation = total assets (reported) + right of use asset = 19,910 + 3,115 = $ 23,025m
Total liabilities (adj) = total liabilities (reported) + NPV of operating lease - 1 year of pay-off…...

...including Brisbane and Melbourne, has resulted in a loss of the share of establishments. With Qantas beginning public trials of in-flight Internet on daily Airbus A380 flights from Sydney and Melbourne to Los Angeles, Australian Business Traveller brings you a hands-on review of the service during the "preliminary testing" period. Each of six Airbus A380s has been fitted with satellite Internet provided through OnAir and is believed to be dotted with a half-dozen wifi hotspots. During this first phase of the trial the service is available only to travellers in first class and business class to indulge in a little sky-high surfing on the Red Roo's dime. Each of those passengers receives an access code for the wireless access points, which are otherwise blocked to the hoi polloi in premium economy and economy. How Qantas' in-flight wifi works... AusBT reader and Platinum frequent flyer Andrew Hazelton travelled in business class on the QF107 Sydney to Los Angeles A380 service on February 29 and was provided with a promotional code which gave him 35MB to use for the duration of the flight. "You then go to a login page that allows you to create a username and login" Hazelton told AusBT. "This was good because you could then use multiple devices with the one code." Well hello there, Qantas in-flight wifi - so nice to finally meet you! "I used all of my 35MB, which surprised the Qantas rep – but to be honest, a few Twitter checks on my iPhone, a few emails on my laptop,......

...loyal customers would love to be on the side of Qantas airplanes, and to be on their web-site and to be totally involved into this campaign, this is called the strength of the brand. Of course, the idea is not new, and it really good, that the management admitted it in the interview: “There are some analogies to what Coke did, which was a great campaign, and also Bonds, but we’ve got our own twists on that”, but it will always touch people, when the campaign is devoted to them, but not made around the brand itself. The target audience of the campaign is really big. But, also a huge segment of the participants will be teenagers and young people under 20, unable to pay for the tickets. Their aim is to get to any social event, to become popular in a class, among their friends, and it is also a big fun to use photo kiosks at Westfield shopping centres in Chatswood (July 5-8), Bondi Junction (July 12-15) and Doncaster (July 12-15) where people can get a hair and make-up ‘touch up’ and a professional photo to be used to participate in the campaign. What is the objective of people to be involved in it, if they are used to fly with another airline or he is one of those passengers, whose flight was canceled last year? I am sure, that the marketing influence on that category of potential customers should be completely different. No funny event and a promise, that you will be on the side of the plane can affect and Impress them ever. Qantas can put a deeper significance under this......

Operational Risk

...Operational Risk measurement This is defined as “the risk of loss resulting from inadequate or failed internal processes, people and systems or from external events. This includes legal risk, but excludes strategic and reputation risk”.9 Such risks are likely to be significant in Islamic Banks due to specific contractual features and the general legal environment. Specific aspects that could raise operational risks in Islamic banks include the following: (1) The cancellation risks in non binding murabahah and istisnah[’a contracts. (2) Problems in internal control systems to detect and manage potential problems in operational processes and back office functions. (3) Technical risks of various sorts. (4) The potential difficulties in enforcing Islamic Finance contracts in a broader legal environment, (5) The risk of non-compliance with Shariah requirements that may impact on permissible income, (6) The need to maintain and manage commodity inventories often in illiquid markets, and (7) The potential costs and risks in monitoring equity type contracts and the associated Legal risks. In addition, increasing use structured finance transactions – specifically, Securitization of loans originated by banks to manage risks on the asset side – could47 Expose banks to additional legal risks. The three methods of measuring operational risks proposed in Basel II would need considerable adaptations in Islamic Banks owing to the...

Risk is inherent in everything that an organisation does: treating patients, determining service priorities, project management taking decisions about future strategies or even deciding not to take any action at all. Risk management is the process of identifying, quantifying and managing the risks that an organisation faces. As the outcome of business activities are uncertain, they are said to have some element of risk. These risks include strategic failures, operational failures, financial failures, market disruptions, environmental disasters and regulatory violations.

Managing Currency Risk with Financial and Operational Hedging Techniques.

...the financial market, almost all of companies need to face the currency risk. In order to manage the currency risk, companies will use different hedging techniques, such as financial and operational hedging techniques. For example, money market, futures contracts, options and forwards contracts are commonly used by firms, as well as operational hedging techniques. All of 4 types of financial hedging techniques are short-term hedge. Money market is a part of financial markets for assets involved in short-term borrowing,lending, buying and selling. Its features are high liquidity, lower risk, such as treasury bills. Futures contracts are future transaction for buying or selling, and made by Futures exchange. The date and place of the transaction have been provided. There are some features of futures contracts. Quantity, commodity and quality have been limited, excepting the price. Also, it cannot be done over-the-counter. Options is a financial tool, which based on futures. If purchaser hold the options, he/she will has a right, not the obligation, to buy from or sell to the seller of the provided commodity in the future as the same price as the price agreed now. The last financial hedging technique, forwards contracts, is a non-standardization contact between two parties to sell or buy in the future. Curb-exchange and cash transaction are the feathers of forward contact. This essay will focus on two operational hedging techniques, market selection strategy and plant location......

Operational Risk

...The definition of operational risk by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision is broad in conceptual terms, but also brief in its wording. If we accept that operational risk represents loss resulting from inadequate or failed internal processes, people and systems, or from external events, then to appreciate the amount of assumed exposure we must: • specify the people, processes and systems that are responsible for operational risk events; and • estimate the frequency and impact of these events as well as assign corresponding responsibilities. I fully agree with the principle advanced by The Geneva Association that everyone is accountable for operational risk. The challenge is to identify everyone’s accountability, bearing in mind that the operational risk definition includes people, processes, systems, and whole organizations. In the last analysis, companies are made up of people. Table 1 presents a list of what I believe to be the top dozen operational risks encountered in nearly every entity. The pattern shown in Figure 1 helps in appreciating that these operational risks can be grouped into three major categories: • the more classical, with legal risk being one of them; • the more modern, where the role of people is emphasized; • those which are technology- and systems-oriented. One more reference is needed to complete this introduction. The myriad of operational riskswhich formthe aforementioned 12 classes have neither the same frequency, nor the......

Operational Risk

...Operational Risk Key Term Operational Risk is the monetary risk that a corporation faces when people, processes, or system failures occur. The concept of operational risk is a constant in the workplace and has a major impact on decision making within the corporation. In my current workplace, we are considering a major change in workflow, and must measure the operational risk to the benefits of the proposed changes. Explanation of the Key Term Many factors must be considered when a change is proposed within an organization. Benefits and detriments must both be weighed in order to make the most informed decision; however, even after careful consideration, some decisions are poor. Operational risk must also include monetary damages that occur outside the realm of human decision-making, such as natural disasters or communication failures. Any action that causes a disruption to routine business operation is considered an operational risk. The more information used to calculate operational risk, the more complete and reliable picture is created for total risk evaluation (Mittnik, Paterlini, & Yener, 2014, p. 102). It is imperative to have accurate data to make quality decisions, and to create processes for predicted failures to minimize impact on the corporation. Major Article Summary Operational risk assessment should be a common, daily occurrence within an organization and should be implemented in every process in place. Corporations should implement an......

Risk Management by Qantas

...1.0 Introduction Airlines industry faces substantial strategic, financial, operational and hazard risks due to the nature of the operating environment. Financial risks create uncertainties about future cash flows due to changes in economic conditions as well as changes in revenues, operating expenditure and financing costs. Firms are urged to minimise these risks to have higher predictability on future cash flows in order to meet various obligations, for instance shareholders’ required rate of return and debt repayment. This report looks into Air New Zealand in particular to study two of the risks that are significant for an airline company, namely foreign currency risk and fuel price risk. Section 2 of this report gives an overview of the relationships between the operation of Air New Zealand with both the risks. Besides, discussions and suggestions on Air New Zealand risk management approaches are presented in Section 3. Finally, a brief summary and conclusion is included in the last section. 2.0 Risks Description 2.1 Fuel Price Risk The Nature of Fuel Price Risk Fuel price risk is the risk of fluctuations in fuel prices which could adversely affect the financial performance of Air New Zealand as jet fuel is a critical input factor for airlines. Fuel prices are affected by the supply and demand, oil price futures and the downside or upside movement in the US dollar against NZ dollar. In particular, the increase in jet fuel prices adds a significant amount to......
