...My Kitchen As I smell the aroma of brownie batter awaiting its trip to the oven, and the sizzling marinated chicken on the stove, I am reminded that my kitchen is the home to many of my memories that include everything from happy birthday dinners to troubled moments. Naturally, I gravitate towards my kitchen, because of its warm and cozy vibes. Not only is my kitchen a place where I am able to eat my worries away, but also a place where my mind is most capable. Whether I’m struggling with a math problem, or just need a place to release stress from a long day, my kitchen is always there. To the left, the large white refrigerator is the first piece of furniture that meets the eye. Across from what I have dubbed “the fridgerator” is the granite countertop that holds the sink and features a shiny metal paper towel roll. Catty cornered from the refrigerator is a stainless steel stove that, at closer inspection, reveals the wear and tear of many years of oil stains. The wooden pantry door holds an abundance of junk food, which my dad keeps thus stocked against my mother’s wishes. The other cabinets in the kitchen contain a large collection of pots and pans, as well as a plethora of unused electronic devices given as gifts throughout the years. The enormous dark brown kitchen table, which comfortably seats eight in a three-person house, is home to scattered paperwork and my over filled backpack. The table is surrounded by windows, which display a three hundred and sixty......

Blaine Kitchen Ware

...Decision of Repurchase- The dilemmaBlaine Kitchenware Inc. is faced with a dilemma as to not go for the suggested buyback or to payheed to the investment banker and repurchase its own shares. And also if BKI does repurchase itsshares, should it only partially repurchase the market float or should it go for complete buyback ( inwhich the Blaine family becomes the owner of all the remaining shares).Also they have to think of the effect of repurchase on the various factors like the risks involved inraising a debt for repurchasing (especially when the company is by and large very conservative andit is debt free), its acquisition plans ( which is mainly done by cash and BKI stocks), the earningsper share, dividend per share (which will become more flexible as now the shares will be with thefamily shareholders only and thus a reduction in dividends can be easily accepted), ownershipstructure, capital structure and of course the reputation of the company in the market after thebuyback.Therefore, we can consider three scenarios and then analyze the effect of these on the abovementioned factors and then decide whether Blaine should follow them keeping in mind the existingshareholders' perspective as well as Blaine's controlling family perspective.These scenarios are:1. BKI should not go for any buyback of shares.2. BKI should go for only partial repurchase, by using only its cash and cash equivalents andmarketable securities and not raising any debts.3.
