5.32 When you were born, your parents set up a bank account in your name with an initial
investment of \$5,000. You are turning 21 in a few days and will have access to all
your funds. The account was earning 7.3 percent for the first seven years, and then the
rates went down to 5.5 percent for six years. The economy was doing well at the end
of 1990s and your account was earning 8.2 percent for three years in a row.
Unfortunately, the next two years you only earned 4.6 percent. Finally, as the
economy recovered, your return jumped to 7.6 percent for the last three years.

5.34 Surmec, Inc., had sales of \$2.1 million last year. The companys primary business line
is manufacturing of nuts and bolts. Since this is a mature industry, the analysts are
certain that the sales will grow at a steady rate of 7 percent a year for as far as they
can tell. The company reports net income that represents 23 percent of sales. The
companys management would like to buy a new fleet of trucks but can do so only
once the profit reaches \$620,000 a year. At the end of what year will Surmec be able
to buy the new fleet of trucks? What will the sales and profit be that year?
LO 1,2,3,4
Solution:
Current level of sales for Surmec = PV = \$2,100,000
Profit margin = 23%
Net Income for the year = 0.23 x \$2,100,000 = \$483,000
Target profit level in the future = FV = \$620,000
Projected growth rate of sales = g = 7%
To calculate the time needed to reach the target FV, we set up the future value
equation.
