How do you interpret your answer?



Calculate the operating and cash cycles. How do you interpret your answer? #2:  You’ve worked out a line of credit arrangement that allows you to borrow up to $50 million at any time.  The interest rate is 0.64% per month. In addition, 5% of the amount that you borrow must be deposited in  a non-interest-bearing account. Assume that your bank uses compound interest on its line of credit loans. a. What is the effective annual interest rate on this lending arrangement? b. Suppose you need $15million today and you repay it in six months. How much interest will you  pay? #3:  Each business day, on average, a company writes checks totaling $14,000 to pay its suppliers. The usual  clearing time for the checks is four days. Meanwhile, the company is receiving payments from its  customers each day, in the form of checks, totaling $26,000. The cash from the payments is available to  the firm after two days. a. Calculate the company’s disbursement float, collection float, and net float.  b. How would your answer to part (a) change if the collected funds were available in one day instead  of two?  #4:  The Arizona Bay Corporation sells on credit terms of net 30. Its accounts are, on average, 8 days past  due. If annual credit sales are $8.4 million, what is the company’s balance sheet amount in account  receivable? #5:  A Firm offers terms of 1/10, net 35. What effective annual interest rate does the firm earn when a  customer does not take the discount? Without doing any calculations, explain what will happen to this  effective rate if: a. This discount is changed to 2%.  b. The credit period is increased to 60 days.  c. The discount period is increased to 15 days. #6:  The Harrington Corporation is considering a change in its cash-only policy. The new terms would be net  one period. Based on the following information, determine if Harrington should proceed or not. The  required return is 2.5 percent per period.

#7: a. For Qn #6, what is the break-even quantity for the new credit policy? b. For Qn #6, what is the break-even price per unit that should be charged under the new credit policy  assuming that the sales figure under the new policy is 4,100 units and all other values remain the  same? Tutorial 2 #1:  First City Bank pays 8 percent simple interest on its savings account balances, whereas Second  City Bank pays 8 percent interest compounded annually. If you made a $5,000 deposit in each  bank, how much more money would you earn from your Second City Bank account at the end of  10 years? #2:  You are scheduled to receive $20,000 in two years. When you receive it, you will invest it for six  more years at 8.4 percent per year. How much will you have in eight years? #3:  You are to make monthly deposits of $300 into a retirement account that pays 10 percent interest  compounded monthly. If your first deposit will be made one month from now, how large will  your retirement account be in 30 years? #4:  You are planning to save for retirement over the next 30 years. To do this, you will invest $700 a  month in a stock account and $300 a month in a bond account. The return of the stock account is  expected to be 11 percent, and the bond account will pay 6 percent. When you retire, you will  combine your money into an account with a 9 percent return. How much can you withdraw each  month from your account assuming a 25-year withdrawal period? #5:  Your job pays you only once a year for all the work you did over the previous 12 months. Today,  December 31, you just received your salary of $50,000 and you plan to spend all of it. However,  you want to start saving for retirement beginning next year. You have decided that one year from  today you will begin depositing 5 percent of your annual salary in an account that will earn 11  percent per year. Your salary will increase at 4 percent per year throughout your career. How  much money will you have on the date of your retirement 40 years from today? #6:  You need a 30-year, fixed-rate mortgage to buy a new home for $240,000. Your mortgage bank  will lend you the money at a 6.35 percent APR for this 360-month loan. However, you can afford  monthly payments of only $1,150, so you offer to pay off any remaining loan balance at the end  of the loan in the form of a single balloon payment. How large will this balloon payment have to  be for you to keep your monthly payments at $1,150?#7: The present value of the following cash flow stream is $6,550 when discounted at 10 percent  annually. What is the value of the missing cash flow? Year Cash Flow  1 $1,700  2 ?  3 $2,100 4 $2,800 #8: Suppose you are going to receive $10,000 per year for five years. The appropriate interest rate is  11 percent. a. What is the present value of the payments if they are in the form of an ordinary annuity?  What is the present value if the payments are an annuity due?  b. Suppose you plan to invest the payments for five years. What is the future value if the  payments are an ordinary annuity? What if the payments are an annuity due?  c. Which has the highest present value, the ordinary annuity or annuity due? Which has the  highest future value? Will this always be true?  #9: Suppose you have a $1.5 million loan with semi-annual installments over 10 years. How much do  you pay towards the principal in the second installment if the interest rate of this loan is 1.8%  compounded quarterly? Tutorial 8 #1: When is EAC analysis appropriate for comparing two or more projects? Why is this method used? Are  there any implicit assumptions required by this method that you find troubling? Explain. #2:  Parker & Stone, Inc is looking at setting up a new manufacturing plant in South Park to produce garden  tools. The company bought some land six years ago for $6 million in anticipation of using it as a  warehouse and distribution site, but the company has since decided to rent these facilities from a  competitor instead. If the land were sold today, the company would net $6.4 million. The company wants  to build its new manufacturing plant on this land; the plant will cost $14.2 million to build, and the site  requires $890,000 worth of grading before it is suitable for construction. What is the proper cash flow  amount to use as the initial investment in fixed assets when evaluating this project? Why? #3:  Winnebagel Corp. currently sells 30,000 motor homes per year at $53,000 each, and 12,000 luxury motor coaches per year at $91,000 each. The company wants to introduce a new portable camper to fill out its  product line; it hopes to sell 19,000 of these campers per year at $13,000 each. An independent  consultant has determined that if Winnebagel introduces the new campers, it should boost the sales of its  existing motor homes by 4,500 units per year, and reduce the sales of its motor coaches by 900 units per  year. What is the amount to use as the annual sales figure when evaluating this project? Why? #4:  You are considering expanding your product line that currently consists of skateboards to include gas powered skateboards, and you feel you can sell 10,000 of these per year for 10 years (after which time  this project is expected to shut down with solar-powered skateboards taking over). The gas skateboards  would sell for $100 each with variable cost of $40 for each one produced, while annual fixed costs  associated with production would be $160,000. In addition, there would be a $1,000,000 initial  expenditure associated with the purchase of new production equipment. It is assumed that this initial  expenditure will be depreciated using the simplified straight-line method down to zero over 10 years. The  project will also require a one-time initial investment of $50,000 in net working capital associated with  inventory, and this working capital investment will be recovered when the project is shut down. Finally,  assume that the firm’s marginal tax rate is 34 percent. a. What is the initial cash outlay associated with this project?  b. What are the annual net cash flows associated with this project for years 1 through 9?  c. What is the terminal cash flow in year 10?  d. What is the project’s NPV given a 10 percent required rate of return?  #5:  The Minot Kit Aircraft Company of Minot, ND uses a plasma cutter to fabricate metal aircraft parts for  its plane kits. The company currently is using a cutter that it purchased used 4 years ago which has an  $80,000 book value and is being depreciated $20,000 per year over the next 4 years. If the old cutter  were to be sold today, the company estimates that it would bring in an amount equal to the book value of  the equipment. The company is considering the purchase of a new automated plasma cutter that would  cost $400,000 to install and which would be depreciated over the next 4 years toward a $40,000 salvage  value using straight-line depreciation. The primary advantage of the new cutter is the fact that it is fully  automated and can be run by one operator rather than the three employees that are currently required.  The labour savings would be $100,000 per year. The firm faces a marginal tax rate of 30%. a. What are the differential operating cash flow savings per year during year 1 through 4 for the new  plasma cutter? b. What is the initial cash outlay required to replace the existing plasma cutter with the newer model? c. If the company requires a 15 percent discount rate for new investments, should the fleet be replaced? #6:  Dangerfield Industrial Systems Company (DISC) is trying to decide between two different conveyor belt  systems. System A costs $430,000, has a four-year life, and requires $110,000 in pretax annual operating  costs. System B costs $570,000, has a six- year life, and requires $98,000 in pretax annual operating  costs. Both systems are to be depreciated straight-line to zero over their lives and will have zero salvage  value. Whichever project is chosen, it will be replaced when it wears out. If the tax rate is 34 percent and  the discount rate is 11 percent, which project should the firm choose? #7: As the manager of The Homey Depot, you are tasked with upgrading a computerized inventory system at  a retail outlet. The remaining period of the lease of this outlet is 10 years and management has no intention of renewing the lease. The required return is 12.5% and the tax rate is 34%. The expected life  and incremental cash flows for the two models of computerized inventory systems are as follows: Current Computerized Inventory System: Initial cost outlay: $1.2m Annual depreciation: $100,000 Accumulated depreciation: $400,000 Remaining useful life: 10 years Annual operating costs (excluding depreciation): $450,000 Current Salvage Value: $400,000 Estimated salvage value at year 10: $50,000 New Computerized Inventory System: Initial cost outlay: $1.5m Useful life: 10 years Annual depreciation: Straight-line full depreciation  Annual operating costs (excluding depreciation): $215,000 Estimated salvage value at year 10: $180,000 a. What is the initial cash outlay associated with this project?  b. What are the net cash flows associated with this project for years 1 through 10?  c. What is the terminal cash flow in year 10?  d. What is the project’s NPV? Would you replace the current inventory system with the new one?:  Evaluate the following statement: Managers should not focus on the current stock value  because doing so will lead to an overemphasis on short-term profits at the expense of  long-term profits.  #2:  Tutorial 1  Suppose you own stock in a company.

Investors require a 14% return on the stock for  the first three years, a 12 percent return for the next three years, and then a 10 percent return thereafter.  What is the current share price? #5:  Far Side Corporation is expected to pay the following dividends over the next four years: $11, $8, $5,  and $2. Afterwards, the company pledges to maintain a constant 5 percent growth rate in dividends,  forever. If the required return on the stock is 12 percent, what is the current share price? #6:  Antiques R Us is a manufacturing firm. The company just paid a $10.46 dividend, but management  expects to reduce the payout by 4 percent per year indefinitely. If you require an 11.5 percent return on  this stock, what will you pay for a share today? #7:  Consider four different stocks, all of which have a required return of 19 percent and a most recent  dividend of $4.50 per share. Stocks W, X, and Y are expected to maintain constant growth rates in  dividends for the foreseeable future of 10 percent, 0 percent, and -5 percent per year, respectively. Stock  Z is a growth stock that will increase its dividend by 20 percent for the next two years and then maintain  a constant 12 percent growth rate, thereafter. What is the dividend yield for each of these four stocks?  What is the expected capital gains yield? Discuss the relationship among the various returns that you find  for each of these stocks. #8: The risk-free rate is an annual rate of 6 percent, and the market return is an annual rate of 12 percent.  Stock A is expected to generate a constant dividend of $5.20 per share. A toxic spill results in a lawsuit  and potential fines, and the beta of the stock increases by 25%. Consequently, the equilibrium price of  the stock falls by 12%. Assume that dividends remain unchanged, what is the new equilibrium price of  the Stock A? Tutorial 7 #1:  Tutorial 7 Suppose a project has conventional cash flows and a positive NPV.
