Because they both are based on NOPAT (or OCF), as well as on the investments made

in the operating assets of the firm, a firm with a negative free cash flow (FCF) will also

have a negative economic value added (EVA).

A.

B.

True

False

A firms dividend policy can have an impact on the value of the firm, since a decrease in

dividends paid out in any year will decrease the firms free cash flow for that year which,

in turn, will reduce the firms enterprise value and the value of the firms stock.

A.

B.

True

False

A decrease in NOPAT does not necessarily lead to a decrease in economic value added

(EVA), since the capital charge may also decrease if the firm has less capital

outstanding.

A.

B.

11.

A decrease in debt (while holding equity constant) will lead to a higher equity-to-value

ratio, a decrease in interest expense, and an increase in the equity multiplier. Therefore,

if a firm decreases its debt we should observe both an increase in return on assets

(ROA) and an increase in return on equity (ROE).

A.

B.

True

False

12.

A firms economic value added (EVA) will be positive whenever the firms return on

invested capital (ROIC) is greater than its weighted average cost of capital (WACC),

which is the same as when its return on equity (ROE) exceeds the cost of equity (rS).

Assume that a firm has just completed Year 2002 (its second year of operations) and

depreciated its fixed assets on a 20-year straight-line basis. Also assume that the firm

is profitable (positive net income), makes no additional investment in fixed assets

during Year 2003, and that all other factors (sales, other expenses, interest, current

assets and liabilities, etc.) are constant from Year 2002 through Year 2003, but that

there may be changes in the firms equity account. Which of the following would you

most expect to observe, comparing results for Year 2002 to Year 2003, if the firm

changes its depreciable life assumption from 20 years to 10 years for Year 2003?

A stock analyst has acquired the following information for your company:

Net operating profit after tax (NOPAT) would increase.

Total operating capital (TOC) would decrease.

Operating cash flow (OCF) would decrease.

Net income (NI) would increase.

Retained earnings on the year-end 2002 balance sheet was $320,000.

The company does not pay dividends.

The company's depreciation expense is its only non-cash expense.

The company has no non-cash revenues.

The company's net cash flow for 2002 was $150,000.

On the basis of this information, select the statement that is most correct.

Your company had positive net income in 2002, but it was less than its net

income in 2001.

Your company's depreciation expense in 2002 was less than $150,000.

Your companys cash on the balance sheet at the end of 2002 must be lower

than the cash it had on its balance sheet at the end of 2001.

Your companys net cash flow in 2002 must be higher than its net cash flow in

2001.

While the balance sheet can be thought of as a snapshot of the firms financial

position at a point in time, the income statement reports on operations over a

period of time. Because of this, some people will use the average of beginning

and ending balance sheet items when calculating ratios that contain both

balance sheet and income statement data.

If we find the present value of a firms future free cash flows by discounting

these cash flows at the firms weighted average cost of capital (WACC), then

this will be equal to the firms enterprise value or actual worth. If we then

subtract away the market value of the firms debt and other liabilities, then what

we will be left with is the value of the firms equity.

In the United States tax rates are regressive. That is, even though wealthy

taxpayers may face a higher marginal tax rate on their taxable income, their

average tax rate, as a percentage of taxable income, will actually be lower.

It is possible for a firm to be financially healthy even if free cash flows have

been negative for a number of years. In fact, we might expect firms to have

negative free cash flow during the early years (that is, during their start-up

phase), because of low NOPAT and large investments in net operating working

capital and fixed assets.

Regardless of the level of fixed assets and the amount of depreciation

expense, if a firm has no interest expense, than its NI will equal NOPAT and

NCF will equal OCF.

Which of the following is likely to increase the additional funds needed (AFN) in a

given year?

A.

B.

C.

D.

E.

6.

The company issued new long-term debt.

The company sold off some of its assets.

The company eliminated its dividend.

The company purchased a lot of new fixed assets.

The companys profit margin increases.

The company decides to reduce its reliance on accounts payable as a form of

financing.

The company is operating well below full capacity.

All of the statements above are correct.

One way to find the total market value of a firms equity is to take the free cash

flows available to the equity shareholders in all future years, and then discount

them back to the present at the shareholders required rate of return.

If the price per share of a firms stock is above the book value per share, then

the market value added will be positive and the market to book ratio will be

greater than 1.0.

One way to find the total market value of a firms equity is to take the free cash

flows available to all investors in all future years, discount them back to the

present at the firms weighted average cost of capital (WACC), and then

subtract away the market value of the firms debt.

If a firm has interest-paying debt in its capital structure, then NOPAT will

always be more than the firms net income, even though NOPAT subtracts

away the total tax that would be paid on the firms operation and does not

consider the interest tax shelter that is created by the debt.

The firms operating cash flow (OCF) for the past year can be calculated as the

change in total operating capital over the year, but this is equivalent to the

change in working capital for the year (total current assets plus total current

liabilities) plus the change in net fixed assets for the year (total gross assets

minus accumulated depreciation).

Personal taxes are of a regressive nature. That is, the lower your income, the

more you pay as a percentage of your taxable income.

Individuals are allowed to deduct 70 percent of any dividend income received

before calculating taxes. That is, they will pay taxes on only 30 percent of the

dividend income received.

The marriage penalty reflects the fact that married couples can be taxed up to

a maximum rate of 43 percent, while individuals have a maximum rate of only

39.6 percent.

Since corporations are allowed to deduct interest before calculating their

taxable income, we say that interest is paid with before-tax dollars.

Corporations are allowed to deduct 70 percent of any dividend they pay out

before calculating taxes. Like interest, this creates a tax shelter for the

corporation.

A firm that takes on a risky project will increase its value as long as the project

increases expected cash flows in the future.

Investors will not be willing to purchase the stock of a firm if they expect the

firms cash flow to continually decrease in the future.

One way to determine the value of a firms equity is to first determine the value

of the entire firm (using free cash flows and the weighted average cost of

capital) and then subtract away the value of the firms debt.

One way to determine the value of a firms equity is to find the present value of

the firms operating cash flow (OCF) using the firms weighted average cost of

capital.

Any firm that has equity with a value/price greater than zero will also have

positive market value added and positive economic value added.

the firm will need and is obtained by adding together increases in assets and

spontaneous liabilities and subtracting operating income.

The percent of sales method of forecasting financial needs requires only a

forecast of the firms balance sheet. Although a forecasted income statement

helps clarify the need, it is not essential to the percent of sales method.

Because dividends are paid after taxes from retained earnings, dividends are not

included in the percent of sales method of forecasting.

Financing feedbacks describe the fact that interest must be paid on the debt

used to help finance AFN and dividends must be paid on the shares issued to

raise the equity part of the AFN. These payments would lower the net income

and retained earnings shown in the projected financial statements.

None of the statements above is correct.

Assume that you can purchase $10,000 of State of Florida bonds that have a coupon

rate of 5 percent and will therefore pay you interest of $500 per year. Alternatively,

you can purchase $10,000 of IBM bonds that have a coupon rate of 6.25 percent and

therefore pay you interest of $625 per year. At what tax rate would you be indifferent

Your firm made $200,000 of EBT during each of the last 10 years and expects to make

the same each year for at least the next 5 years. However, this year the firm incurred

a before-tax loss of $500,000. The firm will claim a tax credit (due to tax carry back) at

the time it files this years income tax return and will receive a check from the U.S.

Treasury. Assuming that the firm has a tax rate of 40 percent on all income (past,

present, and future), determine what the firms expected tax liability will be for the

coming year.

Losses can be carried back 2 years and carried forward 15 years. The firm will use

$200,000 of the current loss to shield its income from 2 years ago and $200,000 of the

current loss to shield its income form last year. That will leave the firm with the

remaining $100,000 of current loss to shield its expected income of $200,000 next

year. This will leave the firm with expected taxable income for the coming year of

$100,000 that, at a tax rate of 40 percent, will produce a tax liability of $40,000.

As you can calculate, the firm had $810 of capital employed in Year 1 (notes payable,

long-term debt, common stock, and retained earnings). If the economic value added

(EVA) for Year 1 is -$26.25, then what is the firms weighted average cost of capital

(WACC)?

As you can calculate, in Year 2 the firms profit margin is 2.68%, ROA is 2.2808511%,

and ROE is 8.4780316%. Assume that the firm could have increased its equity

multiplier to 4.50 by issuing debt and using the proceeds to repurchase equity (debt

increases, equity decreases, and the equity multiplier increases) while holding total

assets and total asset turnover constant. What would the firms profit margin have to

have been in order for it to have achieved an ROE of 12.00 percent?

Assume that your company takes on a project that requires it to make an investment in

net operating working capital (NOWC) of $47,250 and an additional investment in

gross fixed assets (GFA), both of these investments being made in Year 0. Assume

that no other investments are required, but that this project will produce free cash

flows, starting in one year, of $19,138.00 per year in all future years (Years 1 through

infinity). The firm has determined that, based on the risk, the weighted average cost of

capital (WACC) for this project is 8 percent and that the net present value (NPV) of this

project is $33,350. Calculate the companys investment in gross fixed assets (GFA) in

The $200,000 loss in 1996 can be carried forward to cover 1997, 1998, and all but

$10,000 of the 1999 income.

$10,000 of the $90,000 loss in 2000 can be carried back to cover that portion of 1999

income not covered by the 1996 loss.

Additionally, the remaining $80,000 of the 2000 loss can be carried forward to cover all

of the 2001 income and $15,000 of the 2002 income.

Thus, taxable income for 2002 is $75,000 - $15,000 = $60,000. Given a 35 percent

tax rate, your companys tax liability is ($60,000)(0.35) = $21,000

Assume that your firm has just opened for business. The firm is being funded with

investor-supplied capital equal to $20,000,000: liabilities equal to 40 percent of capital

and equity equal to 60 percent of capital. Also assume that creditors require a beforetax rate of return of 8 percent, while stockholders require a 14 percent return. [Based

on this information, and knowing that the tax rate is 40 percent, you should be able to

determine the weighted average cost of capital (WACC) for the firm.] Now assume

that for this first year the firm expects its operations to produce sales of $32,000,000

and EBIT of $4,000,000. [Given this information, you should now be able to calculate

the economic value added expected for the first year.] Finally assume that the firm

expects this EVA to be the same in every future year (a perpetuity). If the WACC is

the correct discount rate to use, determine the market value added by the operations

of this firm.

Assume that in 2005 your salary was $50,000, that you received dividends and capital

gains of $5,000, and received interest income of $3,500. Also assume that you were

single, your personal tax exemption was $3,000, and your itemized deductions were

$7,000. Based on the 2005 tax tables in the exam handout, and the fact that both

dividends and capital gains are taxed at a 15% rate, calculate the average tax rate that

you paid on your total taxable income.

Assume that your firm reported net income of $108 million in 2004, while the firm had

sales of $1,100 million and a cost of goods sold of $880 million. Also assume that the

firms corporate tax rate was 40 percent and its interest expense was $40 million. Now

assume that the firms goal is to increase its net income by 25 percent in 2005. It

predicts that the tax rate and cost of goods sold as a percentage of sales will remain

unchanged, while interest expense will increase by 20 percent. Based on this

information, determine the level of sales that the firm will have to generate in 2005 in

order to meet its net income goal.

firms debt is selling at par and that its cost of stock is 14 percent (you may assume that

flotation costs are zero). You should now be able to calculate the weighted average cost

of capital for the firm (go out to at least 6 decimal places). Given this information,

Since the debt is selling at par, the coupon (interest) rate is equal to the required rate of

return (YTM):

KD = ($850) / ($8,500) = 0.10 = 10.0%

WD = ($8,500) / ($19,500) = 0.4359

WS = ($11,000) / ($19,500) = 0.5641

WACC = (0.10)*(1-.40)*(.4359) + (0.14)*(.5641) = 0.026154 + 0.078974 = 10.5128%

Now assume that you are a single individual and received a salary of $103,750 over

the last year. Also assume that you received $18,000 in dividend income during the

year, interest income of $9,500, have personal exemptions of $2,800, and itemized

deductions of $23,500. If your salary of $103,750 and interest income of $9,500 is

considered to be ordinary income, but your dividends of $18,000 are taxed at only a

15% rate, then calculate your average tax rate on taxable income for the year.

Using the tax table you find that this falls into the 31% marginal bracket, so calculate

taxes as:

Ordinary taxes = $14,381.50 + (0.31)($86,950 - $63,550) = $21,635.50

Now calculate the tax on dividends: Tax = ($18,000)(.15) = $2,700

Total taxes = $21,635.50 + $2,700.00 = $24,335.50

Total taxable income = $86,950 + $18,000 = $104,950

Average tax rate = $24,335.50 / $104,950.00 = 23.19%

Sales = $20,000,000

Cost of Goods Sold = 60% of Sales

Operating Expenses = 25% of Sales

Interest expense = $180,000

Operating capital = $8 million, originally raised as follows:

Debt = $3 million; Common Stock = $5 million

Current WACC = .1135

Number of Shares of Common Stock = 500,000 shares at $10 par value

Earnings per share = $3.384

Tax rate = 40%

Depreciation = $0 per year

Additional investments in assets needed after Year 0 = $0

Based on this information, you should now be able to determine the economic value

added (EVA). Now make the following assumptions: (1) this EVA will occur every year

forever (a perpetuity), (2) the book value of debt is a good proxy for the market value

of debt, and (3) the intrinsic price per share accurately reflects the current market price

of the firms stock. (Hint: it is a function of what the investors originally paid plus value

that has been added.) Determine the current P/E ratio for this stock.

EVA = $892,000

Value added by EVA = $892,000 / .1135 = $7,859,030.83

Current market value of stock equals starting value plus additional value added:

Current market value = $5,000,000.00 + $7,859,030.83 = $12,859,030.83

Current Price Per Share = $12,859,030.83 / 500,000 = $25.72

P/E Ratio = $25.72 / $3.384 = 7.60

Alternatively,

Since Depreciation = $0, then

OCF = EBIT (1-.4) + $0 = ($3,000,000)(.6) = $1,800,000

Since no additional investment in assets is needed, then

FCF = OCF = $1,800,000

Enterprise value = FCF / WACC = $1,800,000 / .1135 = $15,859,030.83

Intrinsic Value = Enterprise Value minus Value of Debt

Intrinsic Value = $15,859,030.83 - $3,000,000.00 = $12,859,030.83

NOTE:

Although not given, when the capital was originally issued the cost of debt was 6% and

the cost of equity was 16 percent, this gave a WACC of 11.35%.

Old Exam Questions - Financial Statements, Cash Flow, and Taxes - Solutions

Page 37 of 73 Pages

WS = $5,000,000 / $8,000,000 = 62.5%

WACC = (.06)(1-.4)(.375) + (.16)(.625) = .0135 + .10 = .1135 = 11.35%

However, since value (NPV) has been added, the market weights and the cost of

equity have now changed. Assuming that the cost of debt has stayed at 6%, we now

have the following:

WD = $3,000,000 / $15,859,030.83 = 18.92%

WS = $12,859,030.83 / $15,859,030.83 = 81.08%

WACC = .1135 = (.06)(1-.4)(.1892) + (KS)(.8108)

KS = (.1135 - .0068112) / (.8108) = 13.16%

The required rate went down because there is now less debt (less risk) because the

market value of the equity has increased (positive NPV).

Your company has $50,000 that it plans to invest in marketable securities. It is choosing

between corporate bonds that yield 9 percent, municipal bonds that yield 6 percent, and

corporate preferred stock with a dividend yield of 7 percent. Your corporate tax rate is

40 percent, and 70 percent of the preferred stock dividends your company receives are

tax exempt. Assuming that the investments are equally risky and that your company

Assume that you are single and that your salary for 2004 was $72,146, and that you

received an additional $6,000 in dividends and $4,000 in interest from your

investments (you did not sell any of your investments so you did not incur any capital

gain or loss). Also assume that you claim a personal tax exemption (single filer) of

$3,100 and that your itemized deductions total $13,454. Based on this information,

and knowing that dividends and capital gains are taxed at 15 percent, determine your

Assume that Firm A is just starting up and has made the projections indicated below.

You may assume that after the initial investment of $200,000 that the firm will make no

other investments in terms of capital expenditures, that there is no depreciation

expense, and that all free cash flows are paid out to the investors and that growth is

therefore zero (i.e., FCF is a perpetuity).

Assume that you calculate that the market value added (MVA) or net present value

(NPV) of this firm is $24,000. Based on this information, determine the economic

value added (EVA) for each year.

MVA = NPV = $24,000 = ($28,000 / WACC) - $200,000

WACC = $28,000 / ($24,000 + $200,000) = 12.50%

EVA = NOPAT - (Capital)*(WACC) = $28,000 - ($200,000)*(.125) = $3,000

MVA = NPV = EVA / WACC = $3,000 / .125 = $24,000

50.

Now, instead of the WACC calculated above, assume that the firm initially raises the

$200,000 of capital by issuing $100,000 of debt at a before-tax cost of debt (rD) of

5.0% (the tax rate is 40%), and $100,000 of equity at a cost of stock (rS) of 13.0%: you

should now be able to calculate the WACC (which may not be the same as in the

problem above), the enterprise value, and the new market value of the firms equity.

Given this market value, and assuming that the firm does not rebalance back to a

50/50 debt equity ratio, but that WACC does remain at its original level, determine

what the new, implied cost of equity must be (HINT1: you can not unlever and relever

beta for this problem; you must use the logic that we discussed and demonstrated in

class. HINT2: work backwards from NOPAT to determine what EBIT must be, and

then work forward to determine, and look at the value of, interest payments versus

dividend payments.)

Therefore,

ROE = 13.00% + 5.00% + 3.20% = 21.20%

Since you were given total assets, you can also work backwards to get ROE:

ROA = 13.00% = NI / $20,000

NI = ($20,000)*(.13) = $2,600

Assume that in 2006 (today) a firm had EBIT of $9,000,000, a tax rate of 40 percent,

and that the firms total invested capital could be defined as $20,450,000 (consisting of

$8,000,000 of debt and $12,450,000 of equity), and that its weighted average cost of

capital is 12 percent. (Hint: you should now be able to calculate economic value

added (EVA) for 2006.) Now assume that EVA is expected to grow at a long-run

sustainable growth rate of 4 percent each year. Given this information, determine the

present value today (2006) of all future EVAs to be earned by the firm.

We discussed in class how the return on equity for a levered firm can be a function of

the return on assets of an equivalent unlevered firm, a leverage effect, and a tax

shelter effect. Assume that a firm starts out as an all equity firm with $10,000,000 of

common equity, $10,000,000 of assets, and a return on assets (ROA) of 14 percent.

Also assume that management makes the decision to issue $2,000,000 of debt (the

firms cost of debt is 8 percent), and to then use the proceeds to buy back $2,000,000

of common equity. Based on this information, and assuming that the firms tax rate is

40 percent, determine what the return on equity (ROE) will be after the buy back.

Assume that an all equity firm has assets of $12,000 and a return on assets (ROA) of

14.50 percent. And that the firm makes the decision to replace 1/3 of its equity with

debt that has a before-tax cost of 9 percent (note: this will give a D/E ratio of = 0.50

). Assuming that the firms tax rate is 40 percent, calculate the firms ROE after the

debt has been issued and equity has been repurchased. (HINT: Think about leverage

This problem can be solved without knowing the firms income statement or how much

it has in total assets.

AT rD = (9.00%)(1-.40) = 5.40%

As discussed in class, after the issue and repurchase, the remaining equity

shareholders will benefit from both a leverage effect and a tax shelter effect:

ROE = ROA + Leverage Effect + Tax Shelter Effect

ROE = 14.50% + (14.50% - 9.00%)(1/2) + (9.00% - 5.40%)(1/2)

ROE = 14.50% + 2.75% + 1.80% = 19.05%

Alternatively,

Since you were given total assets, you can also work backwards to get ROE:

ROA = 14.50% = NI / $12,000

NI = ($12,000)*(.1450) = $1,740

As you can calculate, in 2006 the firms profit margin was 15.02%, total asset turnover

was 0.80321285, and the equity multiplier was 1.67114094. In 2007, the profit margin

went down slightly, but the total asset turnover and the equity multiplier went up.

Determine what the return on equity would have been for the firm in 2007 if it had been

able to maintain a profit margin of 15.02%, while keeping all other variables for 2007

the same, such as the firms total asset turnover and equity multiplier.

There are a lot of different ways to solve this problem, simply choose the method you

are most comfortable with.

NOPAT = (EBIT)(1-T) = ($1,430,000)(1-.4) = $858,000

DEP = $370,000

OCF = NOPAT + DEP = $858,000 + $370,000 = $1,228,000

NOWCY2006 = $2,880,000 - $1,500,000 = $1,380,000

NOWCY2007 = $4,320,000 - $2,250,000 = $2,070,000

NOWC = $2,070,000 - $1,380,000 = $690,000

NFAY2006 = $2,100,000

NFAY2007 = $2,430,000

NFA = $2,430,000 - $2,100,000 = $330,000

GFA = NFA + Depreciation = $330,000 + $370,000 = $700,000

GFAY2006 = $3,000,000

GFAY2007 = $3,700,000

GFA = $3,700,000 - $3,000,000 = $700,000

TOCY2006 = NOWCY2006 + NFAY2006 = $1,380,000 + $2,100,000 = $3,480,000

TOCY2007 = NOWCY2007 + NFAY2007 = $2,070,000 + $2,430,000 = $4,500,000

GIOC = NIOC + DEP = $1,020,000 + $370,000 = $1,390,000

FCF = OCF - GIOC = $1,228,000 - $1,390,000 = -$162,000

FCF = NOPAT - NIOC = $858,000 - $1,020,000 = -$162,000

FCF = OCF - NOWC - GFA = $1,228,000 - $690,0000 - $700,000 = -$162,000

As you can calculate, in 2006 the firms profit margin was 13.52%, total asset turnover

was 0.80321285, and the equity multiplier was 1.67114094. In 2007, the profit margin

went up slightly, as well as the total asset turnover and the equity multiplier.

Determine what the return on equity would have been for the firm in 2007 if it had been

maintained a profit margin of 13.52%, while keeping all other variables for 2007 the

same, such as the firms total asset turnover and equity multiplier.

TAT2007 = $6,000,000 / $6,750,000 = 0.888888889

EM2007 = $6,750,000 / $3,600,000 = 1.875

New ROE2007 = (.1352)*(0.888888889)*(1.875) = 22.5333%

Alternatively,

New Net Income2007 = ($6,000,000)*(.1352) = $811,200

New ROE2007 = $811,200 / $3,600,000 = 22.5333%
