Question 17)

AFN equation

Broussard Skateboard’s sales are expected to increase by 20% from $7.8 million in 2016 to $9.36 million in 2017. Its assets totaled $4 million at the end of 2016. Broussard is already at full capacity, so its assets must grow at the same rate as projected sales. At the end of 2016, current liabilities were $1.4 million, consisting of $450,000 of accounts payable, $500,000 of notes payable, and $450,000 of accruals. The after-tax profit margin is forecasted to be 6%, and the forecasted payout ratio is 75%. Use the AFN equation to forecast Broussard’s additional funds needed for the coming year. Round your answer to the nearest dollar. Do not round intermediate calculations.$_____

## Some people have suggested combining the payback period (PBP) method

Question Some people have suggested combining the payback period (PBP) method with present value analysis to calculate a “discounted” payback period (DPBP). Instead of using cumulative inflows, cumulative present values of inflows (discounted at the cost of capital) are used to see how long it takes to “pay” for a project with discounted cash flows. For a firm not subject to a capital rationing restraint, if an independent project’s “discounted” payback period is less than some maximum acceptable “discounted” payback period, the project would be accepted; if not, it would be rejected. Assume that an independent project’s “discounted” payback period is greater than a company’s maximum acceptable “discounted” payback period but less than the project’s useful life; would rejection of this project cause you any concern? Why? Does the “discounted” payback period method overcome all the problems encountered when using the “traditional” payback period method? What advantages (if any) do you see the net present value method holding over a “discounted” payback period method?
