Your friend asks you for your advice as you have been nominated to the audit committee of a prominent organization. She also asks you to provide her with the overall impact on Emirates, the reason why would the management make such decisions, an estimate of revised operating profits and return on assets (based on provided data), and your views of the depreciation policy.
