BUS 160 SLO Assessment John Stevens, Pro Magic Corporation CEO
John Stevens is the CEO for Pro Magic Corporation, a manufacturing company located off the coast of Mexico in a town called Vista Buena with 5000 residents. The company had been struggling for years until they went into a partnership with a company called Nu Clear Corp located in the United States. Since then, Pro Magic has been revitalized and has been able to expand their manufacturing capabilities and hire more employees. Pro Magic is now one of the largest employers in their town employing over a third of their residence. The town’s other main source of revenue comes from fishing (as well as a main source of their food diet). The partnership with Nu Clear has also been a blessing to the town. Nu Clear has built the two main hospitals in town and provide ongoing funding to support its operations. They also helped to open four elementary schools in town. Without their support, the town would be ill-equipped to deal with illnesses and injuries as well as to teach their young children. John felt like he was on top of the world. He has a great job and was able to live with his wife and two kids (age 5 and 7) in a beautiful city and enjoy the water.
One day, John received a phone call from someone who wished to remain anonymous. She claimed that she worked for Nu Clear so it was not safe for her to reveal her true identify, however she was really concerned for the well-being of our town. She didn’t know who to turn to so she wanted to tell John. This person went on to state that Nu Clear has been secretly sending sealed barrels of their chemical waste and dumping them off the shores of Vista Buena over the last 6 months. They are able to do this because they are using Pro Magic as the reason and channel for all their activity in Mexico. They are continuing to do this to avoid the expensive waste disposal guidelines in the U.S. She’s not sure of how securely these barrels have been sealed but if they leak, the chemicals are likely to kill fish and ocean life in the surrounding areas or alter them. If humans eat the fish or swim in the water when it is contaminated, they are sure to get very ill and develop life threatening diseases.
John was truly concerned so he hired a private investigator to monitor the shores of Buena Vista for weeks (day and night) and was shocked to find that these claims were all true.
John was at a loss. If he calls Nu Clear and confronts them about this or reports them to the US regulatory authorities, they may be heavily fined or shut down. Either way, they will definitely pull out of their partnership with Pro Magic and over 1500 employees will be out of a job. The entire town will also directly suffer from this situation. In addition, he also just heard word from the local hospital that there have been five cases of illness and they haven’t been able to figure out the cause.

Tax Research Memo

Dustin Decker was the founder of Decker Industries, and through his company’s success, attained substantial wealth (into the low billions). At some point after his eightieth birthday, Dustin was introduced to Marie Esquivel who was 28 years old at the time. Dustin’s relationship with Marie blossomed over a period of eight years. Dustin provided her with cash payments of over $500,000, paid her rent, and purchased cars for her.
Marie had stacks of letters and e-mails from Dustin alleging his “love” for her. By all accounts, however, Dustin was not actually in love with Marie. In fact, Dustin, to his friends and confidants, described his relationship with Marie as a “paid escort” or “friend for hire.” He often complained that he “overpaid” his staff when referring to Marie. However, Dustin has never referred to the situation as providing sex for money or prostitution.
Marie, on the other hand, was totally “in love” with Dustin. She was never, ever compelled to participate in any activities by Dustin and assumed that he “must love her” or else why would he pay her all that money? At times, he would threaten to “take away her sugar daddy” if she did not respond to his requests as quickly as Dustin would have preferred, but Marie chalked this up to Dustin’s somewhat cantankerous disposition. Over time, since the threats were never fulfilled, Marie simply assumed that Dustin was having a bad day and would be back soon enough. And time and time again, he was. Marie secretly hoped that Dustin might someday ask her to marry him, but this never happened and Dustin died earlier this year.
Over all those years, Marie never claimed any of the monies provided to her by Dustin as income on her individual tax returns, instead electing to treat the cash, rent, and cars as “gifts” excludable from income. She never received a Form 1099 from him for any of the payments. However, Marie was recently contacted by the IRS. Apparently, the IRS was auditing Dusting’s finances and found the payments made to her. The IRS is considering treating the transferred amounts as taxable compensation to Marie, which would mean she would owe a significant amount of tax, interest, and penalties. Also, Marie says doesn’t know if Dustin reported the amounts on a gift tax return. Marie has engaged you to research this matter and, hopefully, find a way to support treating the payments she received as gifts.
Your responsibility:
Prepare a tax research memo that provides your opinion on the proper treatment of payments made by Dustin to Marie.
Be sure to cite at least one case in your tax research memo

Writer’s Choice Essay

The authors of the text suggest that “strategic intent” (the relentless pursuit of the ambitious strategic objective, concentrating the full force of the organization’s resources and competitive actions on achieving that objective) is key to focusing the organization on a strategic goal. Does your current or future organization express strategic intent? How is it expressed? Is it commonly shared in the organization and generally understood? Finally, and most importantly, if the organization lacks strategic intent, or it is ambiguous, what suggestions would you draw from the text to remedy the situation?

Respond to two people.

My current organization, as mentioned in the week one discussion, is Marathon Pipeline, a limited partner of Marathon Petroleum Corporation. I believe Marathon as a company does express their strategic intent very well and provides their employees with many tools to better understand the direction of the company. The strategic intent is expressed in quite a few ways at Marathon. The strategic plan of Marathon is focused on three pillars. “According to Hennigan, the three pillars include strengthening the competitive positions of MPC’s assets; improving on its commercial performance; and lowering the company’s cost structure” (Kress, 2020). The strategic objects of the strategic intent in Marathon’s case are to strengthen the current assets, improve on commercial performance and lower the cost of running the business. These strategic objects and their progress are expressed in multiple ways throughout the pipeline department.

News releases which discuss big moves within the company that support both improving commercial performance as well as strengthening the position of assets are displayed very clearly on the company’s SharePoint homepage which all employees have access to. One recent news release which was easily obtainable on the company’s main homepage for employees to view even mentioned how the move tied in with the strategic intent of the company. MPC President and CEO Michael J. Hennigan said, “Converting the Martinez refinery to a renewable fuels facility is an important addition to our growing portfolio of renewables projects and aligns with our strategic priorities of strengthening the competitive position of our assets, implementing commercial strategy changes and strategically deploying our capital (Conversion of Martinez Refinery, 2021). The CEO specifically telling how the move is going to drive towards the strategic intent of the company helps employees see why the move is necessary and helps them to better understand the direction of the company. Another way the strategic intent is expressed throughout the pipeline department is through emails. Once a week we get an email that is titled “ScoreTracker”, which gives updates on the savings and cost reduction efforts within the department. This email contains summaries of employee changes that have been submitted and accepted in which either time or money has been saved from the change being implemented. This email is put together in a color-coded fashion for each individual department within pipeline and is easy to understand. The email keeps employees engaged on how well we are performing with this strategic objective and provides an easy to get to source of current figures towards a goal. One other way the strategic intent is expressed to employees is a bi-monthly video email that is distributed to every pipeline employee. These videos are called “Weekly What and Why”, and basically focus on a particular event or topic within the pipeline organization. The video will describe in great detail this topic or event and then also describe the “why” of this topic and how it relates to the main focuses of the company. These informative videos help employees see the different moves that are taking place across the company and provides great insight into projects that will ultimately help the company reach its goals.

Overall, I believe Marathon does a very good job at expressing the strategic intent of the company. Each objective of the company is clearly stated and expressed to employees on a regular basis. The only change I think Marathon should consider regarding strategic intent is focusing a bit more on the long-term objectives of the company instead of just in the short-term. With the very challenging market that the company is currently facing it makes sense to be focused mainly on the short-term, but the text suggests that long-term objectives are critical for obtaining optimal long-term performance (Thompson et al., 2018, p.50)

2nd person
Elon Musk, CEO of both Tesla Motors and SpaceX is well known for his visions. Musk remains focused on his visions for SpaceX which is establishing a permanent human presence on Mars (Sheetz, 2021). It’s important to practice what you preach both in business and personal lives. In 2016, he said that his commercial flight program should be ready to send people to Mars in 10 years (Thompson, 2018). In December 2020, Musk said it’s a achievable goal that in about six years SpaceX will land humans on Mars. A starship rocket, without crew, he plans to send in two years (Sheetz, 2021).

Musk has done an excellent job expressing publicly is vision with SpaceX. If a company lacks strategic intent I would suggest taking it to the board of directors. A company’s board of directors has four obligations to fulfill: oversee the company’s financial accounting and financial reporting practices, critically appraise the company’s direction, strategy, and business approaches, evaluate the caliber of senior executives’ strategic leadership skills, and finally institute a compensation plan for top executives that rewards them for actions and results that serve stakeholder interests, and most especially those of shareholders (Thompson, 2018). Elon’s hard-work-pays-off attitude has elevated him and his employees to run a business worth billions.

Business Question

Mini Case 22
UBS: A Pattern of Ethics Scandals
UBS WAS FORMED in 1997 when Swiss Bank Corp.. merged with Union Bank of Switzerland. After acquir­ing Paine Webber, a 120-year-old U.S. wealth man­agement firm, in 2000, and aggressively hiring for its investment banking business, UBS soon became one of the top financial services companies in the world and the biggest bank in Switzerland. Between 2008 and 2015, however, its reputation was severely tar­nished by a series of ethics scandals. These scandals cost the bank billions of dollars in fines and lost prof­its, not to mention a severely diminished reputation. Even more important, they seem not to be isolated instances, but rather to suggest a troubling pattern.
Ethics Scandal No.1: US Tax Evasion
Swiss banks have long enjoyed a competitive advantage conferred by Swiss banking privacy laws that make it a criminal offense to share clients’ information with any third parties. The exceptions are cases of criminal acts such as accounts being linked to terrorists or tax fraud . Merely not declaring assets to tax authorities (tax eva­sion), however, is not considered tax fraud. After the acquisition of Paine Webber, UBS entered into a quali­fied intermediary (QI) agreement with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the federal tax agency of the U.S. government. Like other foreign financial institu­tions under a QI agreement, UBS agreed to report and withhold taxes on accounts receiving U.S.-sourced income. This reporting is done on an aggregate basis to protect the identity of the non-U.S. account holders. In mid-2008, it came to light that since 2000, UBS had actively participated in helping its U.S. clients evade taxes. To avoid QI reporting requirements, UBS’ Switzerland-based bankers had assisted the U.S. clients to structure their accounts by divesting U.S. securities and setting up sham entities offshore to acquire non-U.S. account holder status. Aided by Swiss bank privacy laws, UBS successfully helped its U.S. clients conceal billions of dollars from the IRS. In addition, UBS aggressively marketed its ”tax­saving” schemes by sending its Swiss bankers to the United States to develop clientele, even though those bankers never acquired proper licenses from the U.S . Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to do so. The U.S. prosecutors pressed charges on UBS for conspiring to defraud the United States by impeding the
IRS. In a separate suit, the U.S. government requested that UBS to reveal the names of 52,000 U.S. clients who were believed to be tax evaders. In February 2009, UBS paid $780 million in fines to settle the charges . Although it initially resisted the pressure to turn over clients’ information, citing Swiss bank privacy laws, UBS eventually agreed to disclose some 5,000 account details, including individual names, after intense negotiations involving officials from both countries. Clients left UBS in droves: Operating profit from the bank’s wealth management division declined by 60 percent, or $4.4 billion, in 2008 alone; it declined by another 17 percent, or $504 million, in 2009.
The UBS case has far-reaching implications for the bank’s wealth management business and the Swiss banking industry as a whole, especially its cherished bank secrecy. To close loopholes in the QI program and crack down on tax evasion in countries with strict bank secrecy traditions, President Obama signed into law the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) in 2010. The law requires all foreign financial institu­tions to report offshore accounts and activities of their U.S. clients with assets over $50,000, and to impose a 30 percent withholding tax on U.S. investments or to exit the U.S. business. Switzerland has agreed to implement the FATCA. The annual compliance cost for each Swiss bank is estimated to be $100 million.
Ethics Scandal No. 2: Rogue Trader
On September 15, 2011, UBS announced that a rogue trader named Kweku Adoboli at its London branch had racked up an unauthorized trading loss of $2.3 billion over three years. Nine days later, UBS CEO Oswald Grubel resigned ”to assume responsibility for the recent unauthorized trading incident.”1 After more than a year of joint investigation by the U.K. and Swiss regulators, the case was concluded with find­ings that systems and controls at UBS were ”seriously defective.”2 As a result, Adoboli, a relatively junior trader, had been able to take highly risky positions with vast amounts of money. More alarmingly, all three of Adoboli’s desk colleagues admitted that they knew of his unauthorized trades. Moreover, Adoboli’s two bosses had shown a relaxed attitude toward his breaching of daily trading limits. UBS was fined $47.6 million in late 2012. Adoboli was sentenced to seven years in prison, of which he served about half before being released in 2015. By summer 2017, he was still fighting his deporta­tion order from Britain, where he had arrived at age 12 from his native Ghana to attend boarding school.
Ethics Scandal No. 3: LIBOR Manipulation
LIBOR, or the London Interbank Offered Rate, is the interest rate at which international banks based in London lend to each other. LIBOR is set daily: A panel of banks submits rates to the British Bankers’ Association based on their perceived unse­cured borrowing cost; the rate is then calculated using a ”trimmed” average, which excludes the highest and lowest 25 percent of the submissions. LIBOR is the most frequently used benchmark reference rate world­wide, setting prices on financial instruments worth about $800 trillion, including mortgage rates, term loans, and many others.
UBS, as one of the panel banks, was fined $1.5 billion in December 2012 by U.S., UK, and Swiss regulators for manipulating LIBOR submissions from 2005 to 2010. Besides accepting the fine, UBS pleaded guilty to U.S. prosecutors for committing wire fraud. During the stated period, UBS acted on its own or colluded with other panel banks to adjust LIBOR submissions to benefit UBS ‘s own trading positions . In addition’ during the second half of 2008, UBS instructed its LIBOR submitters to keep submissions low to make the bank look stronger. At least 40 peo­ple, including several senior managers at UBS, were involved in the manipulation. One major conviction was handed down.
In particular, 35-year-old Tom Hayes, a former UBS (and Citibank) trader, was sentenced to 14 years in prison for rigging the LIBOR. The jail sentence was much longer than what was expected. The judge presiding over the case stated that the court wanted to send a powerful message to banks around the world that financial crime will be severely punished and will no longer be settled with just a fine (paid by the bank). Hayes argues that he is the scapegoat for senior man­agement failings: ”I refute that my actions constituted any wrong doing … I wish to reiterate that my actions were consistent with those of others at senior levels … senior management was aware of my actions and at no point was I told that my actions could or would constitute any wrongdoing.”3
In contrast, prosecutors maintained that Hayes was the mastermind behind a corrupt ring of traders and brokers globally, motivated by a desire to make his performance look stronger. Just a few years earlier, Hayes had been considered one of the most talented traders in the banking industry, whom Goldman Sachs tried to poach from UBS with the promise of a $3 million signing bonus .
Following an appeal, in 2015, Hayes’ sentence was reduced to 11 years. In his letters from prison, Tom Hayes states that he is being held basically in solitary confinement away from other inmates. Authorities indicate that this is done for his protection.
Ethics Scandal No. 4: UBS “Did It Again”
In 2015, in the wake of the LIBOR rigging scandal, the U.S. Department of Justice voided the $1.5 billion settlement from 2012 with UBS, adding another $200 million in fines. Perhaps more damaging, UBS pleaded guilty to allegations that its UBS traders (including Hayes) manipulated LIBOR. UBS had avoided prosecution in 2012 by agreeing to cooperate with authorities and promising not to engage in rate rigging and other illegal activities in the future. The Department of Justice now alleges that UBS violated the terms of the agreement and ”did it again.” This time, prosecutors say that UBS manipt1lated foreign exchange rates. In particular, UBS and other banks are accused of having colluded in moving foreign exchange rates for their own benefit and to the detri­ment of their clients. The Justice Department views UBS as a ”repeat offender,” especially in light of a 2011 settlement related to antitrust violations in the municipal-bond investments market.

How does the theory of moral disengagement apply to your example–i.e., use the chart to explain how people might have acted the way they did without feeling like they did anything wrong? What could those involved have told themselves to feel justified in making unethical decisions. Make sure to identify which of the Albert Bandura’s methods you think was used and why.

Can you think of a time when you did not live up to your own ethical standards? What caused you to go against your ideals? Please explain.
