PLEASE NOTE: I will need a mark of 80% or more, so please select the best qualified expert possible in the subject area of Finance/ Corporate Finance. I am at risk of failing the module, so 80% in this test at least is mandatory. Please inform me and let the writer know if they can achieve such a high mark.
REQUIREMENTS FOR THE TEST:

Separate Excel files cannot be accepted as part of the answer submission. You may use Excel formulas to calculate any answer. However, if they use Excel then they must also provide direct guidance in their Word file on the computations used to generate their answers (i.e., need to show their working).
