Question II Barney’s Business Consulting (30 points; 5 points each)

Jason Barney was the CEO of Barney’s Business Consulting (BBC), a well-known consultancy. Jason, known by everyone as J, frequently travelled between his office and the airport. J determined that it would be a good business investment if BBC acquired a Porsche 911 so that he could drive more quickly between the office and the airport. On January 1, 2011, BBC entered into a 36 month lease agreement to acquire the car. The terms provided that BBC would pay $1,500 per month at the end of each month. BBC also has the option to purchase the Porsche at the end of the lease term (i.e. December 31, 2013) for $42,700. BBC estimated that if BBC purchased the 911 instead of leasing it, it would pay approximately $75,000 in cash. BBC estimated that, because of J’s driving habits, the Porsche would be worn out after 5 years of use. Based on BBC’s credit history, it believed that it could arrange for a loan with similar characteristics at an interest rate of 1 percent per month.

Assume that BBC determined that the purchase option is a bargain purchase option. BBC therefore accounts for the lease as a capital lease.

1. Calculate the present value on January 1, 2011 of the monthly lease payments.

Answer: __________________

2. Calculate the present value on January 1, 2011 of the $42,700 purchase option.

3. Is the purchase option a bargain purchase option? YES or NO (choose one) Explain:

4. Present the journal entry that BBC would enter on January 1, 2011.

5. Calculate interest expense arising from the lease for the month of January 2011.

Answer: __________________

6. Calculate the book value of the lease obligation as of January 31, 2011.

Question III Hill Inc. (20 points; 4 points each)

Hill Inc. makes “math manipulatives” that are used to assist students learn math. The manipulatives are made using an extrusion machine that was purchased five years ago. Hill makes and sells 1,000,000 manipulatives using the machine each year. The cost of resin used to make the manipulatives is $125,000 per year. The current machine was acquired for $100,000, has a book value of $50,000 (as of December 31, 2011) and an estimated remaining life (as of December 31, 2011) of five years with no salvage value.

In December, 2011, James Hill, CEO of Hill Inc., received an announcement that an updated extrusion machine that uses less resin to make a manipulative was developed and would be available on January 1, 2012. The new machine costs $120,000, has a five-year life and no salvage value. Hill also would receive $20,000 for trading in the current machine..docx#_ftn1″ title=””>[1] The new machine would make 1,000,000 manipulatives each year using resin that would cost $75,000 per year; other manufacturing costs (e.g., labor, variable overhead) would be unchanged.

James asked you to determine whether to purchase the new machine and trade in the current machine.

Assume that the selling price for manipulatives is $1 each, other manufacturing costs excluding depreciation (e.g., labor, variable overhead paid in cash) total $340,000 per year, Hill’s tax rate is 30%, and its cost of capital is 10% per year. For simplicity, also assume that all cash flows, except for the amount paid for a new extrusion machine, occur on December 31 of each year. (If the extrusion machine is purchased, payment is made on January 1, 2012.)

1. CalculateHill’s projected net income (after tax) for 2012 if it continues to use the current machine.

Answer: ______________

2. CalculateHill’s projected net income (after tax) for 2012 if it trades in the current machine and purchases the new machine on January 1, 2012.

Answer: ______________

3. Calculate the difference in cash flows on December 31, 2012 if Hill purchases the new machine. (Exclude the amount paid for the new extrusion equipment if it is purchased because that cash flow is assumed to occur on January 1, 2012.)

Answer: If Hill purchases the new machine, cash flow for 2012 is:

HIGHER or LOWER (choose one) by ______________ (amount.)

4. Calculate the difference in cash flows on December 31, 2013 if Hill purchases the new machine.

Answer: If Hill purchases the new machine, cash flow for 2013 is:

HIGHER or LOWER (choose one) by ______________ (amount.)
