As a Recommendation, we therefore recommend that the best alternative action is to accept the proposal of the project for Generoso Pharmaceuticals & Chemicals, Inc. in order for them to stay in competition and reputation. The company can find investors or borrow from creditors or other financial intermediaries that will provide the needed budget. The company will hire experienced German chemists, who can make the company stays in the competition and can achieved high quality of products and be sold at lower prices, which will be more attracted to the buyers (who are majority are less fortunate Filipinos and cannot afford to buy medicine that much).
In the conclusion, although costly and risky, the Generoso Pharmaceuticals and Chemicals, Inc.(GPC) can pursue the proposed budget even if they have insufficient fund to supervise the project. If they can find investors to invest then it will be a win-win situation for both of them if it the project will be a success. Especially now that having the Generic Bill will surely make them to have a fair competition with their competitors. It is also their advantage to produce high quality of products because of the German expatriate’s qualifications and even sell it to a cheaper price.
