dc.description.abstract Incorporates rigorous statistical procedures and computer packages into a long-range financial planning model that will be of practical value to Lund egg companies. The aim is to identify and discuss background information pertinent to understanding the model in its context and to produce and interpret forecasts for Lund egg companies for the years 1981-1986. The report examines the South African industry, as well as providing a background to the Lund egg businesses. It notes that Lunds has grown rapidly over the past decade, and that management is committed to further expansion. The study examines the role played by planning in an organisation, and points out a few features that distinguish long-range financial planning from planning in general. Regression analysis is applied to egg-demand forecasting, and this method is found to be acceptable, although it possesses certain limitations. The report then analyses the forecasts obtained for the Transvaal- OFS and Nothern Transvaal regions. These forecasts form the base upon which the sub-model to forecast funding requirements is built. The report describes the attributes of the sub-model, before proceeding with an account of the deterministic and probabilistic analyses that were performed. The common methods of financing capital requirements are discussed. The sub-model is used to determine an optimum level of financial leverage for Lund egg companies. en
