If you were Kelly, what would you tell the CFO 2 Suppose the union insists on including one of the following stipulations in the agreement No more than half of the total number of bonds

 If you were Kelly, what would you tell the CFO? 2. Suppose the union insists on including one of the following stipulations in the agreement: a. No more than half of the total number of bonds purchased may be purchased from a single company. b. At least 10% of the total number of bonds must be purchased from each of the companies. Which stipulation should Wolverine agree to? Kelly Jones is a financial analyst for Wolverine Manufacturing, a company that produces engine bearings for the automotive industry. Wolverine is in the process of hammering out a new labor agreement with its unionized workforce. One of the major concerns of the labor union is the funding of Wolverine s retirement plan for its hourly employees. The union believes the company has not been contributing enough money to this fund to cover the benefits it will need to pay to retiring employees. Because of this, the union wants the company to contribute approximately $1.5 million dollars in additional money to this fund over the next 20 years. These extra contributions would begin with an extra payment of $20,000 at the end of 1 year with annual payments increasing by 12.35% per year for the next 19 years. The union has asked the company to set up a sinking fund to cover the extra annual payments to the retirement fund. The Wolverines CFO and the union s chief negotiator have agreed that AAA-rated bonds recently issued by three different companies may be used to establish this fund.
