Your memorandum should include the following:

An assessment of bankruptcy risk for the company, referring to known bankuptcy models to support your assessment.

A critical discussion of the likelihood of the company going into bankruptcy.

Company details

Some key financial data for the company is included in the Excel document attached (see Blackboard). You should be able to calculate what is needed using this information.
