Chapter 9:

1. Cash Flows. Quick Computing currently sells 10 million computer chips each year at a price of

$20 per chip. It is about to introduce a new chip, and it forecasts annual sales of 12 million of

these improved chips at a price of $25 each. However, demand for the old chip will decrease,

and sales of the old chip are expected to fall to 3 million per year. The old chips cost $6 each to

manufacture, and the new ones will cost $8 each. What is the proper cash flow to use to evaluate

the present value of the introduction of the new chip? (LO9-1)

3. Cash Flows. Conference Services Inc. has leased a large office building for $4 million per

year. The building is larger than the company needs; two of the building’s eight stories are

almost empty. A manager wants to expand one of her projects, but this will require using one

of the empty floors. In calculating the net present value of the proposed expansion, senior

management allocates one-eighth of $4 million of building rental costs (i.e., $.5 million)

to the project expansion, reasoning that the project will use one-eighth of the building’s

capacity. (LO9-1)

a. Is this a reasonable procedure for purposes of calculating NPV?

b. Can you suggest a better way to assess a cost of the office space used by the project?

5. Cash Flows. Tubby Toys estimates that its new line of rubber ducks will generate sales of

$7 million, operating costs of $4 million, and a depreciation expense of $1 million. If the tax

rate is 35%, what is the firm’s operating cash flow? (LO9-2)

7. Calculating Net Income. The owner of a bicycle repair shop forecasts revenues of $160,000 a

year. Variable costs will be $50,000, and rental costs for the shop are $30,000 a year. Depreciation

on the repair tools will be $10,000. Prepare an income statement for the shop based on

these estimates. The tax rate is 35%. (LO9-2)
