12-1 AFN Equation
Baxter Video Products’s sales are expected to increase by 20% from $5 million in 2010 to $6 million in 2011. Its assets totaled $3 million at the end of 2010. Baxter is already at full capacity, so its assets must grow at the same rate as projected sales. At the end of 2010, current liabilities were $1 million, consisting of $250,000 of accounts payable, $500,000 of notes payable, and $250,000 of accruals. The after tax profit margin is forecasted to be 5%, and the forecasted payout ratio is 70%. Use the AFN equation to forecast Baxter’s additional funds needed for the coming year.

1. (TCO A) Which of the following does NOT always increase a company's market value? (Points : 5)
Increasing the expected growth rate of sales
Increasing the expected operating profitability (NOPAT/Sales)
Decreasing the capital requirements (Capital/Sales)
Decreasing the weighted average cost of capital
Increasing the expected rate of return on invested capital
2. (TCO F) Which of the following statements is correct? (Points : 5)
The NPV, IRR, MIRR, and discounted payback (using a payback requirement of 3 years or less) methods always lead to the same accept/reject decisions for independent projects.
For mutually exclusive projects with normal cash flows, the NPV and MIRR methods can never conflict, but their results could conflict with the discounted payback and the regular IRR methods.
Multiple IRRs can exist, but not multiple MIRRs. This is one reason some people favor the MIRR over the regular IRR.
If a firm uses the discounted payback method with a required payback of 4 years, then it will accept more projects than if it used a regular payback of 4 years.
The percentage difference between the MIRR and the IRR is equal to the project’s WACC....

How does the NCAA encourage collegiate football programs to develop a culture of ethics and compliance?
Collegiate football is not only a very lucrative and rapidly growing “business” but it also has a “tremendous impact on our culture, influencing the values of millions of participants and spectators”. Because of this, it is vey important to ensure that the NCAA ensure that all teams not only follow the rules and interpretations of the game, but also hold themselves to a higher standard with an established code of ethics. These days, there are concerns about moral and ethical conduct for those individuals in leadership roles. Not only are the players to be held accountable for their actions to include proper academic certification, playing in an eligible status, not in receipt of extra benefits, but also the leaders to ensure the following does not occur:
“1) whether student-athletes are being exploited by not being paid for their athletic endeavors; 2) the courting of amateur student-athletes by professional player-agents; 3) gender equity; 4) diversity issues; and 5) improprieties by intercollegiate coaches and administrators (Hums et al., 1999).
