Q. 2 A local biscuit manufacturing company is currently going through tough times. They have
hired your services as a risk management expert to advise them as to how to manage various
risks being faced by them so that they can continue to trade as a going concern. You have
done your feasibility study and have identified various business risks being faced by the
company. You have classified these risks under the following four categories:

Risks that have high impact and high likelihood of occurrence:

Under this category you identified two types of risk being faced by the company. Firstly,
contaminated food stuff quite regularly enters the production process which affects the quality
and life of biscuits manufactured. Secondly, because of minimal initial outlay to start this
business, new entrants are quite frequent in this line of business and this reduces the
company’s existing market share and/or profit margins.

Risks that have high impact but less likelihood of occurrence:

Under this category you identified two types of risks being faced by the company. Firstly, the
non availability of a basic element of production, like sugar. Secondly, in the past there has
been and there is still a risk of significant damage to property as a result of flood or
earthquake.

Risks that have low impact and low likelihood of occurrence:

Under this category you identified that the company faces the risk of minor damage to
property due to snowfall.

Risks that have low impact and high likelihood of occurrence:

Under this category you identified that company drivers are regularly involved in vehicle
accidents that leaves the business temporarily without the vehicle. Secondly, one of the risk
that the company faces is that its production employees regularly gets ill and are off sick and
unable to work temporarily.
Required:
For each of the risks identified under each category above, describe how the company might 15
transfer, reduce or accept the risk.
