1. (TCO A) Which of the following statements is NOT correct? (Points : 5)  The corporate valuation model can be used both for companies that pay dividends and those that do not pay dividends.

An important step in applying the corporate valuation model is forecasting the firm's pro forma financial statements.

2. (TCO F) Which of the following statements is correct? (Points : 5)  The MIRR and NPV decision criteria can never conflict. The IRR method can never be subject to the multiple IRR problem, while the MIRR method can be. One reason some people prefer the MIRR to the regular IRR is that the MIRR is based on a generally more reasonable reinvestment rate assumption. The higher the WACC, the shorter the discounted payback period. The MIRR method assumes that cash flows are reinvested at the crossover rate.

4. (TCO G) The ABC Corporation's budgeted monthly sales are $4,000. In the first month, 40% of its customers pay and take the 3% discount. The remaining 60% pay in the month following the sale and don't receive a discount. ABC's bad debts are very small and are excluded from this analysis. Purchases for next month's sales are constant each month at $2,000. Other payments for wages, rent, and taxes are constant at $500 per month. Construct a single month's cash budget with the information given. What is the average cash gain or (loss) during a typical month for the ABC Corporation? (Points : 20)
From figure 166 pg 654
Sales 4,000
First Month 40% pay and take discount 3%
Discount =1.03= 97% if paid within time limit
Collection month sales =4,000 x .97 x .40=1,552
Last months Collections= (1.00 x .60 x 4,000)=2,400
Simplified Cash Budget:
Sales $4,000 Calculations Collections (From months sales) 1,552
Collection (From last months sales) 2,400
Total Collections= 3,952 not including sales we add (1,552+2,400) Purchases Payments 2,000
Other Payments 500 Total Payments= 2,500 (2,000+500=2,500) Net Cash Gain Loss= $1,452 (3,9522,500) 5.
