Problems
1. Assume a corporation has earnings before
depreciation and taxes of $90,000, depreciation of $40,000, and that it is in a
30 percent tax bracket. Compute its cash flow using the format below.

Earnings before depreciation and taxes _____
Depreciation _____
Earnings before taxes _____
Taxes @ 30% _____
Earnings after taxes _____
Depreciation _____
Cash flow _____

2. a. In problem 1, how much would cash flow be if there were only $10,000
in depreciation? All other factors are the same.
b. How much cash flow is lost due to the reduced depreciation between problems
1 and 2a?

3. Assume a firm has earnings before
depreciation and taxes of $200,000 and no depreciation. It is in a 40 percent
tax bracket.
a. Compute its cash flow.
b. Assume it has $200,000 in depreciation.
Recompute its cash flow.
c. How large a cash flow benefit did the
depreciation provide?

4. Bob Cole, the president of a New York
Stock Exchange-listed firm, is very short term oriented and interested in the
immediate consequences of his decisions. Assume a project that will provide an
increase of $3 million in cash flow because of favorable tax consequences, but
carries a three-cent decline in earning per share because of a write-off
against first quarter earnings. What decision might Mr. Cole make?

7. Referring back to problem 6, if the inflow
in the fifth year for Investment X were $20,000,000 instead of $20,000, would
your answer change under the payback method?

$100,000 investment in either of two companies. The cash flows are as follows:

10. You buy a new piece of equipment for
$16,980, and you receive a cash inflow of $3,000 per year for 12 years. What is
the internal rate of return?

11. Warner Business Products is considering the
purchase of a new machine at a cost of $11,070. The machine will provide $2,000
per year in cash flow for eight years. Warners cost of capital is 13 percent.

whether it should be undertaken.
