Suppose you are manager(s) of a corporation and you feel that it will do much better in the future than most analysts believe. Speak out your arguments and opinions that make you feel so optimistic.
The Clockwork Corporation would like to issue $2 million in new shares of stock. The President of Clockwork believes that if the company waits for two weeks, they could get a better price for their shares. The Chair of the board of directors disputes this. He says that because markets are price efficient, there is no “timing” possible on the stock issue and Clockwork should issue the shares when they need the funds, and not worry about “timing.” Who is right? Why?

In the instances when calculation of customs duties and taxes involves foreign currency, conversion of said foreign currency into the legal tender of the Russian Federation shall be based on the exchange rate established by the Central Bank of the Russian Federation for accounting and customs payments purposes effective on the day of acceptance of the customs declaration.
The Customs Code stipulates the terms of payment of customs duties and taxes levied on the goods conveyed across the customs border by natural persons for personal use, on the goods dispatched by international mail, on the commodities conveyed through pipeline transport and electric power lines, on the goods imported with partial conditional exemption from customs duties and taxes, and on the illegally imported goods and commodities discovered in possession of their buyers (organisations involved in wholesale and retail sale operations with imported goods and commodities) in the territory of the Russian Federation.
Upon the payer’s preference, dutiable payments are made either in the currency of the Russian Federation or in the foreign currencies whose rate of exchange is quoted by the Central Bank of the Russian Federation pursuant to the Law of the Russian Federation on Currency Regulation and Currency Control.
The penalty fee shall be charged for non-payment (delay of payment) of customs duties and taxes within prescribed time limits. Calculation of penalty fees is based on the refinance rate established by the Central Bank of the Russian Federation effective during the payment delay period.
