Q1-1. Why has Clarkson Lumber borrowed increasing amounts despite its consistent profitability? Because they have faced cash shortage trouble.

The position is perhaps rather less clear when one examines the decided cases … However, to put it at its lowest, the authorities do not preclude us adopting the respondents ' case in that they do not represent a clear and consistent line of authority to the contrary effect. Indeed, we consider that, taken as a whole, the authorities favour the respondents ' case.” (per Lord Neuberger in FHR European Ventures LLP and others v Cedar Capital Partners LLC  UKSC 45 at .

Recommendation As Mr. Clarkson's financial advisor, we would caution him on expanding his business given the current financial trends and ratios of the company. The investment in inventory and receivables is too high.

Additionally, a significant increase in debt, such as a $750,000 loan, will further reduce the current ratio of the company. Clarkson Lumber could benefit from some changes in its collection policies for
