An integrated sequence of three cases on the financing of a technical workstation manufacturer. This case focuses on the competitive strategy of Sun, which requires an extremely high growth rate (over 20% per quarter) and appropriate amounts of working capital. Students are asked to rate the importance of access to capital for the company and decide whether Sun should rely on the public stock markets or seek funding from corporate partners.
