Question 14:
Iba Industries is a division of a major corporation. The following data are for the latest year of operations:

Net operating income

Average operating assets

The company’s minimum required rate of return

What is the division’s residual income?
Question 15:
Tullius Corporation has received a request for a special order of 8,000 units of product C64 for $50.00 each. The normal selling price of this product is $53.25 each, but the units would need to be modified slightly for the customer. The normal unit product cost of product C64 is computed as follows:
Direct materials

Direct labor

Variable manufacturing overhead

Fixed manufacturing overhead

Unit production cost

Direct labor is a variable cost. The special order would have no effect on the company’s total fixed manufacturing overhead costs. The customer would like some modifications made to product C64 that would increase the variable costs by $5.00 per unit and that would require a one-time investment of $43,000 in special molds that would have no salvage value. This special order would have no effect on the company’s other sales. The company has ample spare capacity for producing the special order.
How much is the “effect” (incremental net operating income) on the company’s total net operating income through accepting the special order?
Question 16:
(Ignore income taxes in this problem.) Hinck Corporation is investigating automating a process by purchasing a new machine for $520,000 that would have an eight-year useful life and no salvage value. By automating the process, the company would save $134,000 per year in cash operating costs. The company’s current equipment would be sold for scrap now, yielding $22,000. The annual depreciation on the new machine would be $65,000.
What’s the simple rate of return on the investment to the nearest tenth of a percent?
Question 17:
(Ignore income taxes in this problem.) Schaad Corporation has entered into an eight-year lease for a piece of equipment. The annual payment under the lease will be $2,500, with payments being made at the beginning of each year.
If the discount rate is 14%, what’s the present value of the lease payments?
Question 18:
Brodigan Corporation has provided the following information concerning a capital budgeting project:
Investment required in equipment

Net annual operating cash inflow

Tax rate

After-tax discount rate

The expected life of the project and the equipment is three years, and the equipment has zero salvage value. The company uses straight-line depreciation on all equipment, and the depreciation expense on the equipment would be $150,000 per year. Assume cash flows occur at the end of the year except for the initial investments. The company takes income taxes into account in its capital budgeting. The net annual operating cash inflow is the difference between the incremental sales revenue and incremental cash operating expenses.
What is the net present value of the project?
Question 19:
Dukas Corporation’s net cash provided by operating activities was $218,000; its net income was $203,000; its capital expenditures were $146,000; its cash dividends were $49,000.
