A firm has $820 in inventory, $3,200 in fixed assets, $1,210 in accounts receivable, $890 in accounts payable, and $360 in cash. What is the amount of the net working capital?
For the year, Jensen's has depreciation of $2,058, dividends paid of $125, interest expense of $382, an addition to retained earnings of $3,408, and an increase in common stock of $2,500. The total tax rate is 21 percent. What is the operating cash flow?
The computation of operating cash flow is seen below;
Net income = $125 + $3,408 = $3533
Net income $3,533 - Interest expense $382 - Depreciation $2,058 = EBIT $1,093
Tax = 21% × $1,093 = $229.53
Operating cash flow = $1,093 + $2,058 + $2,700 - $229.53 = $5,973
You are considering two projects. Project A has projected cash flows of $6,500, $4,500, and $2,500 for the next three years, respectively. Project B has projected cash flows of $2,500, $4,500, and $6,500 for the next three years, respectively. Assuming both projects have the same initial cost, you know that:
a. there are no conditions under which the projects can have equal values.
b. Project B has a higher net present value than Project A.
c. Project A is more valuable than Project B given a positive discount rate.
d. both projects offer the same rate of return.
e. both projects have equal net present values at any discount rate.
Over the next three years, Marti plans to save $2,000, $2,500, and $3,000, respectively, starting one year from today. You want to have as much money as Marti does three years from now but you plan to make one lump sum investment today. What amount must you save today if you both earn 4.65 annually?
Sun Lee's is considering two mutually exclusive projects that have been assigned the same discount rate of 10.5 percent. Project A has an initial cost of $54,500, and should produce cash inflows of $16,400, $28,900, and $31,700 for Years 1 to 3, respectively. Project B has an initial cost of $79,400, and should produce cash inflows of $0, $48,300, and $42,100, for Years 1 to 3, respectively. What is the incremental IRR?
a. −15.40 percent
b. −11.23 percent
c. 4.08 percent
d. 7.83 percent
e. 13.89 percent
Wilson's Market is considering two mutually exclusive projects that will not be repeated. The required rate of return is 13.9 percent for Project A and 12.5 percent for Project B. Project A has an initial cost of $54,500, and should produce cash inflows of $16,400, $28,900, and $31,700 for Years 1 to 3, respectively. Project B has an initial cost of $69,400, and should produce cash inflows of $0, $48,300, and $42,100, for Years 1 to 3, respectively. Which project, or projects, if either, should be accepted and why?
a. Project A; because its NPV is positive while Project B's NPV is negative
b. Project A; because it has the higher required rate of return
c. Project B; because it has the largest total cash inflow
d. Project B; because it has a negative NPV which indicates acceptance
e. Neither project; because neither has an NPV equal to or greater than its initial cost
A project has an initial cost of $26,000, a discount rate of 11.7 percent, a life of 5 years, and an NPV of $11,216. Given this, you know that the project is expected to earn a return:
a. equal to 11.7 percent of $26,000 plus an additional $11,216.
b. of $11,216 in total.
c. equal to 11.7 percent of $37,216 (= $26,000 + 11,216).
d. of 11.7 percent of $11,216.
e. of $26,000 minus $11,216.
