Bandywine Homecare, a not-for-profit business, had revenues of \$12 million in 2007. Expenses

other than depreciation totaled 75% percent of revenues, and depreciation expense was \$1.5

million. All revenues were collected in cash during the year and all expenses other than

depreciation were paid in cash.

What were Brandywine’s 2007 net income, total profit margin, and cash flow?

Net income = 12M * (1 - 75%) - 1.5M = \$1.5 million

Total profit margin = \$1.5M/12M = 12.5%

Cash flow = 1.5M + 1.5M = \$3 million

Suppose the company changed its depreciation calculation procedures(still within GAAP)such that

its depreciation expense doubled. How would this change affect Brandywine’s net income, total profit margin, and cash flow?

Net income = 12M *(1 - 75%) - 3M = \$0 million = a decrease of \$1.5 million

Total profit margin = \$0M /12M = 0% = a decrease of \$1.5 million

Cash flow = 0M + 3M = \$3 million = no change
