...Chapter 1 Questions Question [pic] Answer 1-1 a. Proprietorship: A business structure in which an individual and his/her company are considered a single entity for tax and liability purposes. A proprietorship is a company which is not registered with the state as a limited liability company or corporation. The owner does not pay income tax separately for the company, but he/she reports business income or losses on his/her individual income tax return. The owner is inseparable from the proprietorship, so he/she is liable for any business debts. Partnership: a relationship of two or more entities conducting business for mutual benefit. Corporation: The most common form of business organization, and one which is chartered by a state and given many legal rights as an entity separate from its owners. This form of business is characterized by the limited liability of its owners, the issuance of shares of easily transferable stock, and existence as a going concern. b. limited partnership: A business organization with one or more general partners, who manage the business and assume legal debts and obligations, and one or more limited partners, who are liable only to the extent of their investments. Limited partners also enjoy rights to the partnership's cash flow, but are not liable for company obligations. Limited Liability Partnership: (LLP) Another name for a Limited Liability Company, often used by professional associations. The partner or investor's liability is...

...Financial Understanding FIN 100 Professor Murphy August 26, 2012 Financial Understanding As a business owner, financial understanding is a must. Small businesses typically finance their operations differently than large corporations. Many small businesses must rely on the personal resources and credit history of the firm’s owners to access money needed to be a success. Whether it is a small business or a corporation, success depends on having the ability to earn more than what is being paid out. Financial ratios help do just that. The main three ratios that are used in the business world are the current ratio, total debt ratio, and profit margin. Current ratio measures whether or not the business has enough resources to pay its bills over the next 12 months. This ratio can be determined by dividing the current assets by the current liabilities found on the company’s balance sheet. Total debt ratio is exactly what it says, a measure of the company’s debt. The total debt ratio is total debt divided by total assets. Profit margin is simply how much profit is made. Net income divided by sales shows profits. Each of these can be used for any size business (Ward, n.d.). If current ratio was to show an inability to cover the costs, debt financing may be a solution. As with all financial options, there are advantages and disadvantages. One advantage of debt financing is that it allows the founders of the company to maintain...

...TO: Flowton CFO CC:Emily Balsam Date: Apr,3,2013 Subject : Munster and Skilboro machines analysis . Not any of the measure in the summary tables is appropriate for the analysis cse, even though the NPV calculations might be used as the beginning point for a measure analysis. The repayment dated is not suitable for the same causes that it is always unsuitable for analysis of a capital costing problem: the cash flows after the repayment dated are ignored; cash flows before the repayment dated are all assigned the same weight, in any case of timing; the cut-off dated is arbitrary. In addition to the above, the internal rate of return standard might be scored in mistaken classification among every other exclusive investment projects when there are changes in the size of the projects below consideration or when there are changes in the timing of the cash flows. In selecting between the two different stamping machines, both of these two differences exist. The net present value calculations specify that the Skilboro machines have a better NPV ($2.56 million) that the Munster achiness ($2.40 million). However, since the Munster machines also have a little life, it is not clear whether the changes in NPV are simply a matter of longevity. In order to detect for this changes, we might calculate the equivalent once a year for each Munster machines: 7 years annuity factor at 15% NPV will score; 2400000/4.16042 = EAC of 0.57686 in million Skilboro machines: 10 years annuity...

Managers need to stay informed on how money flows through their business in order to maintain business and build a profit. b. Describe the organizational forms a company might have as it evolves from a start-up to a major corporation. List the advantages and disadvantages of each form. The organizational forms a company might have as it evolves from a start-up to a major corporation are sole proprietorships, partnerships, and corporations. Most companies start as a proprietorship which is a business owned by one person. According to our book, the advantages are it is easy and inexpensive to start, there are not very many government regulations, and its income tax is not taxed on the corporate level. The disadvantages are it may be difficult to build capital which may make it hard for the business to grow, there are also unlimited personal liabilities to business debts, and the life of the business is limited to the life of the proprietor. The advantage of a partnership is it’s easy and inexpensive to start, and taxes are set on a personal level instead of a corporate level. The disadvantages are unlimited persona liability, limited life of the organization, difficulty of transferring ownership, and its difficult raising a lot of capital.

These concepts offer proven methods, which improve the financial success. Discussed below are basic corporate financial concepts, which can be applied and yield positive results. Principles of Corporate Finance When dealing with business investments most commercial entities have used corporate financing in the company. The principle of self-interested behavior is the principle which creates a financial advantage for all parties involved when the playing field is equal or all components associated with the deal are equal. As we strive to gain a deeper comprehension of business transactions through human behavior we find that each of the 12 principles carry invaluable weight to the success or failure of the company. Comparative advantage, diversification, options, risk-return tradeoff, signaling, and valuable ideas are some of the principles used in business dealings. Financial principles, financial markets, and business ethics form a foundation for the financial decisions that managers routinely make.

(a) What is the equilibrium risk premium (that is, the excess return on the market portfolio)? (b) If a certain stock has a realized return of 14%, what can we say about the beta of this stock? (c) If a certain stock has an expected return of 14%, what can we say about the beta of this stock? 2. You are given the following two equations: E(Ri ) = Rf + (E(RM ) − Rf )βi E(RM ) − Rf σp E(Rp ) = Rf + σM (1) (2) You also have the following information: E(RM ) = .15, Rf = .06, σM = .15.

...CHAPTER 7 INTEREST RATES AND BOND VALUATION Answers to Concepts Review and Critical Thinking Questions 1. No. As interest rates fluctuate, the value of a Treasury security will fluctuate. Long-term Treasury securities have substantial interest rate risk. 2. All else the same, the Treasury security will have lower coupons because of its lower default risk, so it will have greater interest rate risk. 3. No. If the bid price were higher than the ask price, the implication would be that a dealer was willing to sell a bond and immediately buy it back at a higher price. How many such transactions would you like to do? 4. Prices and yields move in opposite directions. Since the bid price must be lower, the bid yield must be higher. 5. There are two benefits. First, the company can take advantage of interest rate declines by calling in an issue and replacing it with a lower coupon issue. Second, a company might wish to eliminate a covenant for some reason. Calling the issue does this. The cost to the company is a higher coupon. A put provision is desirable from an investor’s standpoint, so it helps the company by reducing the coupon rate on the bond. The cost to the company is that it may have to buy back the bond at an unattractive price. 6. Bond issuers look at outstanding bonds of similar maturity and risk. The yields on such bonds are used to establish the coupon rate necessary for a particular issue to initially sell for par value. Bond...
