    Following your instructions exactly… I must be missing something because
    my rounds reports are AWFUL. Horrible actually, even after round 2.

    I put automation for trad and low at 8 and 10, respectively, but I kept
    ranking up depreciation costs on my Income statement. Depreciation is not
    factored in your contribution margin, but it can still affect Ur income
    statement, but not ur cash flow. so if u wana take debt, Ur lenders will
    look at Ur cash flow, but if u wana take on equity more Ur investors will
    look at Ur income statement, affecting Ur stock. it’s a trade-off. no one
    correct way. depends on what ur competition is doing.

    If I didn’t borrow bonds in the first two rounds, is it ok to borrow the
    max in round 3?

    If you have questions about capsim, I can help you get in top 5 percentile
    in the nation. Its really easy, and I think he leaves some key pieces out.
    But he gets the general information right.

    You can figure out how to manipulate Capism, but can’t fix your auto lag?

    Is there anyone here that can offer some help with capsim/compxm? I tried
    this guide but I didn’t do very well on the group rounds and now I have to
    start the individual rounds. I think I might need some help from the start
    since I more or less depended on this guide for the group rounds. -_-

    Hey TheDreno33, we followed your steps for the first round but it didn’t
    seem to work. It’s likely something we did wrong. Instead of breaking even
    we were issued an $8M emergency loan. 🙁 When you said to be roughly $0.75
    to $1.00 lower than competitors prices, did you mean just for the low end
    segment, or for each segment?

    Our Team is in LAST place with Capsim in Round 2, and we don’t know how to
    salvage the project. We’ve been told to sell off a segment in order to have
    capital for our new product. But we don’t know how to. Can you offer any
    help?

    What about the product portfolio? Did you bring in or phase out any
    products?

    I ran a trial run up to round 4, this does not work. ROS – 68.77%,
    emergency loans every round and share price is $1

    Hey, Thanks so much for your video. I intend to follow your strategy and
    hopefully it works for me. I’ve only just begun on CAPSIM, I’m on practice
    round 1. Can I clarify that your video is for the practice rounds and not
    CompXM?

    Hey man! Thanks so much for your video! I urgently need to clarify
    something before I proceed to the further rounds. I’ve only just started on
    the CAPSIM practice rounds today and I intend to use your strategy.

    Sorry to sound very naive, I want to go ahead and use exactly the strategy
    you’ve laid out above but do I not do anything regarding the price,
    positioning, production etc etc?

    Thank you thank you! Grateful if you could answer this!

    Hello, is it necessary to add any new products? Or are going to be ok with
    just the default products?

    I didn’t do well in the Capsim Challenge, only placed No. 18. I could be in
    the Final if I spend more time and have more practice to play higher BSC
    score.

    I could clearly see two mistakes in the video, but I will not tell.

    A couple of questions:

    1) Should you pay dividends?

    2) How should you go about paying off debt?
