Description for case is given below :
Describes the early stage development of PowerWater Beverages, a company poised to capitalize on the growing U.S. consumer demand for bottled water and, more specifically, for “pure water”. The investors successfully negotiated the exclusive rights and interest in a trade secret and industrial design to produce and distribute a pure distilled oxygenated water, secured commitments from independent representatives who comprised the company’s national sales force, and signed contracts with co-packers, suppliers, and distributors. As the CEO, Kent Mawhinney, prepares for a board meeting, he must determine whether his CPA’s estimated capital requirements are correct, calculate what the pre and post money valuation for the company, analyze the impact of proposed alternatives, reassess the strength of the opportunity to see if it still makes sense to pursue it, and determine whether other opportunities for PowerWater’s distilled, oxygenated water product exist beyond the general market that the core product will target. This case is intended for undergraduate and graduate entrepreneurship, entrepreneurial finance, and finance courses. We realize that this presents a wide range of potential applications for the case but believe that the rich data provided in the case provides adequate information for the case to add value to the aforementioned courses. Professors using this case should have already or should intend to provide students with lectures and assigned readings on how to analyze the feasibility of entrepreneurial ventures. This should include the appropriate tools and models for conducting analyses from an entrepreneurial as well as financial valuation perspective. The author has used the work of Jeffry Timmons and Michael Porter as the basis for discussing this case.
