Rhonda Magee, a new employee at Regina Broadband, was tasked to prepare slides for the company's next earnings conference call. The company had seen good growth through acquisitions, but now was pursuing a strategy of organic growth. Recent changes had raised potential questions about the company's leadership and compensation. As a policy, Regina's management provided limited future earnings guidance to investors. Since the most recent Q4 and year-end earnings data were still being gathered, Magee decided to draft the slides with provisional headlines and insert placeholders for data and results that the CFO could complete before the earnings conference call later in the week.
This disguised case sets the stage for the accompanying B case (UVA-C-2368), which takes place directly after Regina releases its earnings.
