A microeconomic analysis of the current state of the soft drink market in the u.s. and how any recent developing trends may affect the demand for this product.

Assume that you have just been hired as a financial consultant to a startup company that plans to introduce a new beverage to the soft drink market. Your company’s product is advertised as a healthier alternative to soda and other artificially-flavored drinks. The all-natural sparkling beverage has only 25 calories, 5 grams of sugar, no chemicals or preservatives, and comes in four fruit flavors: orange, pineapple, apple, and grape.
Two years ago, the product was introduced in Florida. The phenomenal growth in sales since its introduction demonstrates that the product and its marketing possess tremendous potential. Accordingly, the company wants to explore possibly expanding sales of the product to the rest of the U.S. market.
Although the company has been highly profitable, the management group has little to no financial experience. Most decisions to date have been made on the basis of ‘does it feel right’ as opposed to rigorous, data-based financial analysis. The company has no system of financial oversight and the managers of the company have a limited understanding of sound management accounting practices.
You have been asked to provide the company with a general analysis of this proposed project. Your specific task is to produce a report discussing the following key aspects of this expansion project:
A microeconomic analysis of the current state of the soft drink market in the U.S. and how any recent developing trends may affect the demand for this product.
A macroeconomic analysis of the state of the U.S. economy and the impact this may have on the demand for this new product.
A list of key management accounting practices that the company must put in place to support their planned expansion. Each item you list must be fully explained to the management group staff so they understand how and why the practice is necessary to manage the growth that will come with the expansion of the product to different states. Be sure to consider the fact that the company will need outside financing and may even consider the possibility of going public to sell its stock on an exchange.
Based on the quality of your report, the management group will decide whether or not to hire you to then help them develop a full capital budgeting plan for this project. Because this is something you would like to do, mainly because capital budgeting consulting pays extremely well, you want to make sure your report is well-written, organized, professional, and convincing.
Length: 6 pages, not including title page and references
