1. Assume that the before-tax required rate of return for Deer Valley is 14%. Compute the before-tax NPV of the new lift and advise the managers of Deer Valley about whether adding the lift will be a profitable investment. Show calculations to support your answer.
Investment = $2,000,000 + $1,300,000= $3, 300,000
Inflow = 300 Skiers *40 days*$55/ skier/day = $660,000
Outflow = (200days*$500/day) = $100,000
PV @14% = ($660,000- $100,000) * 6.623= $3,708,880
NPV = $3,708,880- $3,300,000 = $408,880
Adding the new lift is a profitable investment, the lift will create value of $408,880
2. Assume that the after-tax required rate of return for Deer Valley is 8%, the income tax rate is 40%, and the MACRS recovery period is 10 years. Compute the after-tax NPV of the new lift and advise the managers of Deer Valley about whether adding the lift will be a profitable investment. Show calculations to support your answer.
After cash flow equals $560,000*.6 = $336,000
Cash flows at 8% = $336,000*9.818 = $3,298,848
Tax savings equals $3, 300,000 *.4*.7059 = $931,788
NPV after Tax equals $3,298,848 =$931,788 - $3, 300,000 = $930,636
The lift is has more value after tax than before taxes
3. What subjective factors would affect the investment decision?
 Inclement weather will have a factor on additional skiers
 Less crowding which in turn makes of more satisfied customers
 Other items purchased by additional skiers such as food and rental equipment…...

Deer Hunting

...Week 7 (Assignment 6) The Way to a Good Deer English November 22, 2011 Deer hunting is a very demanding hobby. The one thing that everyone must keep in mind when hunting is your safety and the safety of others. The reason for this is that you are using a weapon that can cause serious harm to you or someone, but this is not what this essay is about. I want everyone to actually learn what it takes to be a hunter. Being a hunter takes skill and understanding how deer sense things. The first thing that comes to everyone’s mind when thinking about hunting is killing Bambie. This is not the way I think, because of how I was raised. I took up hunting at an early age. I would always go with my father. So, here is what I have learned about hunting deer. You, as a hunter have got to know where the deer are. This is the easy part. Just find some good land with a water source, and good food that they eat i.e. acorns, wild persimmons trees, apples trees, corn, clover, and winter rye. Scout the land after locating these, to see if you can find there bedding areas. Finding the bedding area is the hard part. Deer in general will bed down in areas where they feel protected. Like in open areas surrounded by thick brush, or in low lying areas. After finding these good spots look for trails leading to their food, and water sources. These trails are what will make you or break you when it comes time to kill that big buck. The trail usually will lead to natural pinch points in the land...

Spring Valley

...SPRING VALLEY FOREST PRODUCTS CORPORATION Upon returning from his annual two-week vacation in early July of 2002, the treasurer of the Spring Valley Forest Products Corporation, a Mr. Fred Firr, found the firm's audited balance sheet as of June 30 on his desk. Close scrutiny of the company's financial condition as reported in this document suggested to Mr. Firr that the cash flow picture for the enterprise was deteriorating. In times gone by, the firm had been able to maintain sizeable cash balances in its bank of account, Tippecanoe Trust Company, during the major portion of the fiscal year, and had found only modest seasonal borrowings necessary. Recently, however, a lengthening of credit terms to customers necessitated by intense competition in the company's dominant product lines had increased working capital needs quite substantially. Simultaneously, lower selling prices occasioned by the same competition had diminished profit margins. For these reasons, Mr. Firr-who had starred as a quarterback in high school, felt that a careful forecast of funds needs for the remainder of 2002 was in order. Spring Valley Forest Products (SPRIVORPCO) produced plywood paneling and moldings both for lumber wholesalers and major contractors in the north central Indiana area. The verdant Wabash River Valley had proven capable of supporting the lush growths of timber necessary to the company's production activities. Most lumber, however, was purchased from independent farmers...

Deer Hunting

...Imagine yourself driving home from a grueling day at work. Your completely exhausted, and all you can think about is how good its going to feel to get out of your work clothes and into a cozy pair of sweats. When all of a sudden, BOOM!! A deer jumps out in font of you. You hit it head on and total your car. Now let me ask you, are you for or against deer hunting? Had a hunter had a chance to get that deer earlier, you could have been home already and not have to worry about finding a new car. The greatest benefit to deer hunting is population control. We as humans, have pretty much eliminated the deer's natural predators. If we didn't hunt to keep their numbers down, then the deer population would grow uncontrollably. Eventually ending the species due to starvation and disease. So, in a way, we are actually saving a species by hunting them. And believe me when I say that it's better, and cheaper, to hit them with an arrow or a bullet than with your car. In addition to population control, hunting is also great exerciser. Not only for the body, but for the mind as well. It gets you reacquainted with the sights and sounds of the outdoors. Things that have all been but forgotten due to the luxury of city life. It gives guys a chance to get away and be guys. No wives or girlfriends around to tell them they can't cuss, spit, grunt, or scratch. Now I know these animal rights activists are saying that hunting and killing animals is cruel. They say that...

... for their room, and paid $89 per room night. In 2004, 45% of leisure travelers spent one night in a hotel room, 28% spent two nights, 20% spent three nights, and 7% spent four or more nights. 2. What is the current competitive positioning for Astor Lodge & Suites, Inc? Currently Astor Lodge is projected to suffer a fifth consecutive unprofitable year. In the past, major U.S. lodging industry research segments hotels by amenities, price and service levels. Hotel segmentation is broken up into two different categories: Full service hotels as well as limited service hotels. Full- service hotels offer food and beverage outlets such as restaurants and lounges; meeting, banquet and convention facilities; and concierge, luggage service and room service. An example of a full-service hotel is the Four Seasons. While Limited-service hotels do not offer the same facilities of full-service hotel facilities such as restaurants, lounges and banquet rooms. These hotels focus primarily on renting hotel rooms. An example of these hotels is the Hampton Inn. The company is positioned as a limited-service hotel between economy hotels and full-service hotels. This is due to the fact that Astor Lodge nor Astor Lodge suites include a restaurant, lounge, meeting rooms and concierge, luggage or room service on property. Some of Astor Lodge’s competition includes the Fairfield Inn by Marriott, Hampton Inn & Hampton Inn Suites even though Astor Lodge and Suites may not always compete......

Deer Valley Lodge

...Deer Valley Lodge Deer Valley Lodge Chantail Kelley American InterContinental University-Managerial Accounting (ACCT310-1405A-04) Consider the following scenario: Deer Valley Lodge, a ski resort in the Wasatch Mountains of Utah, has plans to eventually add five new chairlifts. Suppose that one lift costs $2 million, and preparing the slope and installing the lift costs another $1.3 million. The lift will allow 300 additional skiers on the slopes, but there are only 40 days a year when the extra capacity will be needed. (Assume that Deer Valley Lodge will sell all 300 lift tickets on those 40 days.) Running the new lift will cost $500 a day for the entire 200 days the lodge is open. Assume that the lift tickets at Deer Valley cost $55 a day. The new lift has an economic life of 20 years. 1. Assume that the before-tax required rate of return for Deer Valley is 14%. Compute the before-tax NPV of the new lift and advise the managers of Deer Valley about whether adding the lift will be a profitable investment. Show calculations to support your answer. 300(additional skiers)*40(days it will be open)*55(cost of tickets)=660,000 $660,000*$100,000(annual overflow)=560,000 6.6231 to get the PV of 560,000 for 20 years @ 14% Net Cash flows $560,000 X The factor for P V of cash flows for ordinary annuity 6.6231 Net present value of cash flows $3,708,936- 3,300,000= $408,936 I would advise the managers of Deer Valley that adding the...

...4. Given Mr. James' charge to the senior vice presidents, how would you portray and assess sales and marketing initiatives, expenditures, and outcomes for fiscal 2004 and fiscal 2005? 4.1 Sales, marketing initiatives, expenditures and outcomes for fiscal 2004 In 2004, the primary objective was to increase overall occupancy rates, focusing on attracting first-time customers from a different segment; the pleasure/vacation traveller. Looking at Exhibit 7, it is evident that a total of $11,360,000 was spent in marketing/media exposure, with 28% of this expenditure focusing on attracting the pleasure/vacation traveller segment. Most of this was done through newspapers, magazines and spot television. The remaining 72% continued to target the business traveller. Through looking at exhibit 7, it is evident that the 2004 fiscal plan introduces the use of internet in marketing/advertising for the first time for Astor Lodge & Suites, Inc. This is critical as it is to be noted that one in five of our customers today are using the internet to plan their trips and make reservations. The objective of 2004 was met; attracting the new segment of the vacation/pleasure traveller, increasing weekend occupancy rates overall, and therefore increasing overall occupancy in fiscal 2004. Room-nights sold = 1. (a) calculate room-nights sold, (b) multiply this figure by room dollar contribution (average daily rate minus the direct cost per room/suite from case Exhibit 5), to...

Balabac Mouse Deer

...In Partial Fulfilment Of The Requirements In General zoology ------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------- Balabac Mouse Deer ------------------------------------------------- Submitted to: Mr. John Lemuel Noche Submitted by: Kim N. Fabia, BSBio3 August 13, 2015 Balabac Mouse Deer April 6, 2008 General Description The small, Balabac mouse deer or Chevrotain does not belong to Family Cervidae, the true deer family, but is a member of the Chevrotain family. Chevrotain is a French word meaning “little goat”. When meat is cooked with “ogsom”, a fruit used to remove the characteristic odor of the mouse deer, the natives found it delicious. Its consumption by the locals caused endangerment to the population. Physical Characteristics Balabac mouse deer are ruminants without horns with small canines oriented sideways. They have horizontally-oriented pupil adapted to night activity. The body is generally covered with brown fur, with blotches of dark-brown and white bands at the throat. The ears stand erect with white undersides. Habitat The above mouse deer was captured near the shore when dogs cornered it. It is however difficult to find during the day. It is known to occur in dense areas of primary as well as secondary forests. At night, they could be detected using a flashlight because their eyes shine brightly. They may also be encountered along roads bound by thick forests. A native recounted that...

Valley Winery

...Valley Winery Case Study Introduction The San Francisco division of Valley Wine has recently hired a new sales manager named Paul Waller. The company has had consistently good sales despite a turnover of 100% of the sales force in the San Francisco area. Waller is tasked with better planning and organization of the sales force activities of Valley Winery and the operations in the region. Philosophy and Strategy The Valley Winery was founded in 1933 and has grown to the largest domestic producer of wine in the United States. They produce multiple product lines that include both low-price, consistent-quality wines as well as lower quality wines and wine coolers. The Valley Winery has had a difficult time retaining its sales force. Even though they have had short-term growth in sales, they are not able to sustain the growth. The Valley Winery has been recognized as the best managed and most innovative in the market. This is related to two factors: * Producing low-priced wine with consistent quality * Push strategy that is used by the sales force Distribution System Valley Wine has a wide, nationwide distribution system which is primarily located in metropolitan areas. The company owns approximately 50% of these distributors that are mainly larger and more profitable accounts. The company typically does not target smaller accounts, but one of their products do cater to this segment of the market also. Sales representatives’ call on non...
