Calculation Of Incremental And Free Cash Flows


1. The Natural Candy Co. will release a new range of ‘healthy’ lollies containing antioxidants. New equipment to manufacture the lollies will cost $2million, which will be depreciated by straight-line depreciation over five years. In addition, there will be $5million spent on promoting the new line. It is expected that the range of lollies will bring in revenues of $4million per year for five years with production and support costs of $1.5 million per year. If the Natural Candy Co’s marginal tax rate is 30%, what are the incremental free cash flows in the second year of this project?

A. $1.03 million
B. $1.87 million
C. $2.47 million
D. $2.50 million

2. Temporary Housing Services Incorporated (THSI) is considering a project that involves setting up a temporary housing facility in an area recently damaged by a cyclone. THSI will lease space in this facility to various agencies and groups providing relief services to the area. THSI estimates that this project will initially cost $5million to set up and will generate $20 million in revenues during its first and only year in operation (paid in one year). Operating expenses are expected to total $12million during this year and depreciation expense will be another $3million. THSI will require no working capital for this investment. THSI’s tax rate is 30%.

Ignoring the original investment of $5million, what is THSI’s free cash flow for the first and only year of operation?

A. $5.0 million
B. $3.50 million
C. $8.0 million
D. $6.50 million

However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
