Case Study


Wondermouse Company, a family entertainment business wishes to distribute its DVDs into new foreign markets. Irkand, with its newly developed economy presents a brand new market opportunity for Wondermouse Company.  The Sr. Vice President (SVP) of International sales, Bob, was able to sign a deal selling 1 million copies of the company's latest hit show "Go Mouse Go" on DVD to Irkland.Desperate to sign the deal so Bob can make his annual sales target, thus ensuring he will receive his annual bonus, Bob agreed to denominate the sale in IRKs, the national currency for Irkland.    


The deal was priced at $3M USD when the exchange rate was 1 IRK = $3 USD.  The payment for the DVDs will be made 9 months from the date the DVDs are shipped from the U.S. to Irkland.


Questions


1. Did Bob make the right decision for the company and why?  

2. Who should he have consulted to ensure this is the right decision and why? 

3. What are the risks of entering into a sales contract as this?


Additional information:
