Second task is to pick one ASX listed company within the industry to undertake financial ratio analysis and competitor analysis. Finally, identify the regulator of the industry and your chosen ASX Listed Company and the recent actions (within the last 3 years) that they have taken to control ethical behaviour in the industry.
Note that groups cannot have the same ASX Listed Company. The first come, first served rule will apply.
