Q1. The following data apply to A.L.

Kaiser & Company (millions of

dollars): Cash and marketable securities $100.00 Fixed assets 283.50 Sales $1,000.00 Net income $50.00 Quick ratio 2.0x Current ratio 3.0x DSOa 40.55 days ROE 12% a Calculation is based on a 365-day year. Kaiser has no preferred stockonly common equity, current liabilities, and long-term debt. a. Find Kaisers (1) accounts receivable (A/R), (2) current liabilities, (3) current assets, (4) total assets, (5) ROA, (6) common equity, and (7) long-term debt. b. In part a, you should have found Kaisers accounts receivable (A/R) = $111.1 million. If Kaiser could reduce its DSO from 40.55 days to 30.4 days while holding other things constant, how much cash would it generate? If this cash were used to buy back common stock (at book value), thus reducing the amount of common equity, how would this affect (1) the ROE, (2) the ROA, and (3) the total debt/total assets ratio?


The Petry Company has $1,312,500 in current assets and

$525,000 in current liabilities. Its initial inventory level is $375,000, and it will raise funds as additional notes payable and use them to increase inventory. How much can Petrys short-term debt (notes payable) increase without pushing its current ratio below 2.0? What

will be the firms quick ratio after Petry has raised the maximum amount of short-term funds?

Q3. The Kretovich Company had a quick ratio of 1.4, a current ratio of
3.0, an inventory turnover of 6 times, total current assets of $810,000, and cash and marketable securities of $120,000 in 2001. What were Kretovichs annual sales and its DSO for that year? Assume there are 365 days in a year.


The H.R. Pickett Corporation has $500,000 of debt outstanding,

and it pays an interest rate of 10 percent annually. Picketts annual sales are $2 million, its average tax rate is 30 percent, and its net profit margin on sales is 5 percent. If the company does not maintain a TIE ratio of at least 5 times, its bank will refuse to renew the loan, and bankruptcy will result. What is Picketts TIE ratio?

Q6. Data for Barry Computer Company and its industry averages
follow. a. Calculate the indicated ratios for Barry. b. Construct the extended Du Pont equation for both Barry and the industry. c. Outline Barrys strengths and weaknesses as revealed by your analysis. d. Suppose Barry had doubled its sales as well as its inventories, accounts receivable, and common equity during 2001. How would that information affect the validity of your ratio analysis? (Hint: Think about
averages and the effects of rapid growth on ratios if averages are not used. No calculations are needed.)
