Some members of the marketing department are agitating for more high roller clients because they perceive that this provides a better revenue stream. Senior management have responded by asking the Financial Controller to provide two alternative plans, in addition to the base case information outlined above.

Alternative 1: The following amendments are required:

1. The buffet dining area (currently 5,000 square feet) could be modified. If the buffet is scaled down then the buffet dining area would require only 1500 square feet and marketing don’t think that this will change the amount spent on food by the gamblers. The show dining and dance area would be left at 5,000 square feet.

2. The maximum number of players for game of chance players and high rollers should be removed.

Alternatives 2: The following amendments are required:

1. The senior management thinks it is possible to generate a daily income of more than $1,500,000.

2. Both the buffet dining area (currently 5,000 square feet) and the show dining and dance area (currently 5,000 square feet) could be modified to a reasonable size. However, the management reminds that both Games and Show guests spends substantial amount on food and drinks. Hence, too small and no dining area could potentially discourage the

gamers and show guests going to the casino.

3. The minimum and maximum number for each type of guests can be modified with the condition that management wants a good mixed of each type of guest.

Now, as the corporation wanted further evaluation considering two alternatives, the analyst has performed the same. In alternative 1, it was mentioned that the dining area can be reduced to 1500 sq ft and the upper limit of number of gamers and high rollers needs to be removed. If the corporation does the same, then this base model will give a different profit figure of $12,20,369.50. Clearly, the profit figure will increase to a significant level as the total space now be utilised by 3500 sq ft extra. In addition, the total number of high rollers will also increase, which means, there will be more amount of direct revenue and less amount of side effects. In this case, the sensitivity report indicates that even though the total number of guests will be lower than the base case, the corporation will evidence superior profits mainly because the guest type. Here also, even if the total of guest reduced from this predicted figure by 355, then also the same level of revenue will be there. Hence, even if the expense will increase to a significant level, alternative option 1 will be considered as more beneficial than base case. |

Total Side Effects | $0 | $230 | $0 | $52 | $54,314.03 | Now, if the second alternative is taken into consideration then it can be seen that the management of Holiday Entertainment Corporation (HEC) wanted to get a profit figure more than $15,00,000.00. For that they are ready to reduce the show area as well as dining area to a significant level and also want a mixed type of guest of at least two types. Considering those changes the analyst has built another alternative model. As per this new model, the management of Holiday Entertainment Corporation (HEC) can earn a profit of $21,48,172.98. However, this can be achieved only though accessing the maximum space available for casino. This will not be a feasible solution as in such case there will not be any space for buffet dining and dance area. Hence, even if alternative 2 is giving the management the desired level of profit, it may not a choice for them. Thus, to conclude it can be said that alternative 1 will be the best choice for Holiday Entertainment Corporation (HEC). |
