1. INTRODUCTION

## Engineering Economy _ study of economic theories and

their applications to engineering problems with the concept
of obtaining maximum benefit at the least cost.
Economics_ is the study of scarcity. Resources are limited, and
every society wants to figure out how to allocate its resources for
maximum benefit._Jodie Beggs, PhD (Harvard U)

Reasons for Studying Engineering Economy:
Engineering designs and operations must be equated with
costs for practical applications
Engineers evolve into managers of their own or other
enterprises

## Uses of Engineering Economy

Application on various fields of engineering
Determining of limiting factors
Tool in selection of alternates
Investment of capital
Tool in decision making

Economists study topics such as:
How prices and quantities of items are determined in market
economies
How much value markets create for society
How taxes and regulation affect economic value
Why some goods and services are under-supplied in a market
economy
How firms compete and maximize profit
How households decide what to consume, how much to save, and
how much to work (or, more generally, how people respond to
incentives)
Why some economies grow faster than others
What effect monetary and fiscal policy has on economic well-
being
How interest rates are determined

SELECTION AND EQUIVALENCE IN PRESENT ECONOMY

## Present economy involves the analysis of problems for

manufacturing a product or rendering a service upon the
basis of present or immediate costs. It is highlighted when the
effects of time such as interest and depreciation are
negligible. Present economy is employed when the
alternatives to be compared will provide the same result and
the period involved in the study is relatively short.
When alternatives for accomplishing a specific task are being
compared over one year or least-and influence of time on
money can be ignored, engineering economic analyses are
referred to as present economy studies.

11 ntaldon
SELECTION AND EQUIVALENCE IN PRESENT
ECONOMY
Present economy studies occur in the following situations:
a. Selection of material_ In many cases, economic selection among materials cannot be
based solely on the costs of materials. Frequently, a change in materials will affect the
design and processing costs, and shipping costs may also be altered.

## b. Selection of method to be used_ In mechanical or chemical operations a product

may be made by two or more methods giving equivalent results. Some goods may be
delivered by various methods such as using different capacity trucks, and the results
would still be the same regardless of the truck used. These are but a few of the
examples that may be cited to show that certain operations are capable of being done
by two or more methods.

## c. Selection of design_ In the design of a machine to produce a certain product, the

engineer responsible for the work will usually make as many designs as possible and
from which, by a process of elimination, he will select the design best fitted for the
work to be done with particular care being given to the one which will do the work
with most economy.

d. Selection location or site for a project_ In the choice of a factory site many factors
are often considered such as the cost of the land, the cost of construction in the
NTAldon
12 different sites, and the difference in transportation cost, and many other factors.
e. Comparison of proficiency among workers_ In industrial operations
where the efficiency of the workers is a factor affecting costs, it is
usually observed that workers have varying efficiencies. In some
occupations only those with better average proficiencies are acceptable.
In teaching for example, other factors being equal, preference should be
given to those teachers who did better than average in their studies.
f. Economy of tool and equipment maintenance_ In many activities,
tools have to be sharpened from time to time, and equipment have to be
kept in good operating condition all the time. In certain cases,
experience will show the best time to perform certain operations to
maintain equipment at the optimum operating efficiency.
g. Economy of number of laborers_ In certain industrial operations it is
observed that a certain number of workers cooperating on a certain
phase of work will lead to the highest efficiency. An increase beyond this
number will usually cause the taking into effect of the law of diminishing
returns. In certain cases, the excess of laborers will result in some
laborers not working at certain times while waiting for the work of
other laborers to be finished.

SAMPLE PROBLEMS:
A machine part to be machined may be made either from an alloy of
aluminum or steel. There is an order for 8000 units. Steel costs
P380/kg, while aluminum costs P870/kg. If steel is used, the steel per
unit weighs 110 grams; for aluminum, 30 grams. When steel is used, 50
units can be produced per hour; for aluminum, 80 units per hour
with the aid of a tool costing P64,000, which will be useless after
8,000 units are finished. The cost of the machine and the operator is
P1080 per hour. If all other costs are identical, determine which
material will be more economical.
Solution:

Steel Aluminum
Material Cost 0.11kg (P380/kg)= P41.80 0.030 kg (P870) = P26.10
Labor and Machine P1,080/50 = P 21.60 P1,080/80 = P13.50
Tool P64,000/8,000 = P8.00
Cost per piece P63.40 P47.60

A company manufactures 1 million units of a product
annually. A new design of the product will reduce material
cost by 12%, but will increase processing cost by 2%. If
materials cost is P 12/unit and processing will cost P4/unit,
how much can the company afford to pay for the preparation
of the new design and making changes in equipment?
Solution:

## Decrease in materials 1,000,000 (0.12) (P12) = P 1,440,000

Increase in processing 1,000,000 (0.02) (P4) = P 80,000

Time Value of Money
Time affects the cost of money.
A peso now is worth more than a peso a year from now because it can
earn interest during the year.

## Interest represents two things:

1.The compensation paid for the use of the borrowed capital
2. The risk taken in making the loan.

The rate at which interest will be paid is usually fixed at the time the
capital is borrowed, and a guarantee is made to return the capital at
some set of time in the future or on an agreed-upon pay-off schedule.
Riskier loans require more interest to make them attractive.
16 NTAldon
History of Interest
The concept of interest goes back to earliest recorded history.

Babylon 2000 B.C. money paid for use of grain that was borrowed.
Typical rates were 6 to 25% per annum.

## Usury is prohibited in the Law of Moses, and in Islamic cultures.

In the middle ages, interest on loans was prohibited based on these
restrictions.
In 1536, John Calvin adopted a theory of what constituted usury that
allowed interest.
Islamic conventions developed to allow those with money to buy a stake in a
business in return for an portion of the profit from that business.
Interest and the cost of capital have become an essential part of doing

INTEREST DEFINED
Interest __ the time value of money
__ money paid for the use of money
__ compensation paid for the use of borrowed capital.

Elements of Interest
1. Principal, P = the sum of money lent or borrowed
2. Interest, I = the price paid or charge made for the use
of money
3. Time, n = the period of time during which interest is charged,
measured in some specific unit. The unit may be day,
week, month, 3 months, 6 months, or a year.
4. Rate, i = the price paid for the use of money for a unit of time. It
is given as a percentage of the original amount.

Types of Interest
A. Simple Interest:The interest is proportional to the original amount of the loan
I Pin
Requires compensation payment at a constant interest rate based only on the original amount
The principal P must be repaid eventually; therefore the entire amount F, of principal plus simple interest due after n periods
is;
PFI

In the payment of simple interest, it makes no difference whether interest is paid at the end of each time unit or after
any number of time units. The same total amount of money is paid during a given length of time, no matter which method is used.
Under these conditions, there is no incentive to pay the interest until the end of the total loan period.

1. Ordinary Simple Interest 360 12
The time unit used to determine the number of interest period is usually one year, and the interest rate is expressed on a
yearly basis. When an interest period of less than one year is involved, the ordinary way to determine the simple interest is to assume
the year consists of twelve 30-day months, or 360 days.

Compound Interest: The interest is proportional to the balance at any point in
time
Stipulates that interest is due regularly at the end of each interest period. If
payment is not made, the amount due is added to the principal, and the interest is charged
on this converted principal during the following unit time.
Thus an initial loan of P at an annual interest rate i would require payment of Pi
as interest at the end of the first year. If this payment were not made, the interest for the
second year would be ( P + Pi ) i and the total amount due for interest after 2 years
would be :

IT2 Pi ( P Pi)i

Therefore, the total amount of principal plus interest after 2 years equals

INFLATION or DEFLATION: f

Inflation is the increase in the price of goods and services from one year to
the other, thus decreasing the purchasing power of money.

## Deflation involves a decrease in the average price of goods and services

resulting to the increase in the purchasing power of money. It is usually
associated with a prolonged erosion of economic activity and high
unemployment.

Some measures of price changes in our economy are the Consumer Price
Index (CPI) and Producer Price Index (PPI).

37 NTAldon
Consumer Price Index (CPI)
Consumer price index (CPI) measures changes in the price level of consumer
goods and services purchased by households.
The CPI is a statistical estimate constructed using the prices of a sample of
representative items whose prices are collected periodically. Sub-indexes and sub-
sub-indexes are computed for different categories and sub-categories of goods and
services, being combined to produce the overall index with weights reflecting
their shares in the total of the consumer expenditures covered by the index. It is
one of several price indices calculated by most national statistical agencies.
The annual percentage change in a CPI is used as a measure of inflation. A
CPI can be used to index (i.e., adjust for the effect of inflation) the real value of
wages, salaries, pensions, for regulating prices and for deflating monetary
magnitudes to show changes in real values.

Indexn Indexn 1
Annual Change Rate f 100%
38 NTAldon Indexn 1
Producer Price Index (PPI)
Producer Price Index (PPI)_ is a family of indexes that measure the
average change over time in the prices received by domestic producers of
goods and services. PPIs measure price change from the perspective of the
seller.

The headline PPI (for finished goods) is a measure of the average price
level for a fixed basket of capital and consumer goods for prices received
by producers. The producer price index for finished goods is a major
indicator of commodity prices in the manufacturing sector. These prices
are more sensitive to supply and demand pressures than the more
comprehensive consumer price index. Changes in the producer price
index are considered a leading indicator for consumer price changes,
although only a small portion of the PPI is directly connected to less than
half of the CPI.

BONDS
_is a certificate of indebtedness of a corporation
usually for a period not less than ten years and
guaranteed by a mortgage on certain assets of the
corporation or its subsidiaries.
Bonds are issued when there is a need for more
capital such as for expansion of the plant or the services
rendered by the corporation.
The face or par value of a bond is the amount stated
on the bond.
When the face value has been repaid, the bond is
said to have been retired or redeemed.
The bond rate is the interest quoted on the bond.
58 NTAldon
Classification of Bonds

## 1. Registered Bonds _ The name of the owner of this bond is

recorded on the record books of the corporation and interest
payments are sent to the owner periodically without any action
on his part.
2. Coupon Bonds _ Have a coupon attached to the bond for each
interest payment that will come due during the life of the bond.
The owner of the bond can collect the interest due by
surrendering the coupon to the offices of the corporation or at
specified banks.

59 NTAldon
BONDS

## Equipment obligation bonds _ refer primarily to bonds whose

guarantee is a lien on equipment.
Registered bonds _ the owner's name is recorded in the books of the
corporation, and the interest is paid periodically to the owner
Joint bonds _ bonds which are issued by two or more corporations
Par value of the bond or face value_ is the amount stated on the
bond.
Bond rate _ is the rate of interest quoted on the bond.
Redemption or disposal priceusually equal to par value.
Mortgage bonds _ bonds whose security is mortgaged on certain
specified assets of the corporation.

60 NTAldon
BONDS

## Debenture bonds _ bonds without security behind them except a

promise to pay by the issuing corporation
Callable bond _entitles the issuer to pay off the principal prior to the
stated maturity date. Similarly, the owner of a putable bond _can force
the issuer to pay off the principal before the maturity date.
Convertible bond _gives the bondholder the right to exchange the
bond for shares of the issuer's common stock at a specified date.
Municipal bonds _are issued by state and local governments and other
public entities, such as colleges and universities, hospitals, power
authorities, resource recovery projects, toll roads, and gas and water
utilities. Municipal bonds are often attractive to investors because the
interest is exempt from federal income taxes and some local taxes.
There are two types of municipal bonds: general obligation bonds and
61 NTAldon
revenue bonds.
62 NTAldon
Retirement of Bonds
The corporation may issue another set of
bonds equal to the amount of bonds due for
redemption.
The corporation may set up a sinking fund into
which periodic deposits of equal amount are
made. The accumulated amount in the sinking
fund is equal to the amount needed to retire
the bonds at the time they are due.

DISCOUNT FACTORS and EQUIVALENCE

71 NTAldon
DEPRECIATION
The decrease in the value of equipment, building or other structures
due to the passage of time. The causes of depreciation may be physical
or functional.

## Examples of physical depreciation are, wear and tear, corrosion, accident,

deterioration due to age or elements.

## The rest are functional depreciation and one good example is

obsolescence. This is caused by technological advances or developments
which make an existing property obsolete. Even though the property
has suffered no physical change, its economic serviceability is reduced
because it is inferior to improved types of similar assets that have been

## Depletion_ Another kind of depreciation is material loss due to

consumption or exploitation particularly applicable to natural
72
resources.
NTAldon
Purposes of Depreciation

## To provide for the recovery of capital which has been invested in

physical property

## To enable the cost of depreciation to be charged to the cost of

producing products or services that results from the use of
property.

## For engineers, depreciation is included as cost of production of

any product or the rendering of any service where equipment is
used to provide for the replacement either at the end of its
physical or economic life or at the time when its operation no
longer results in satisfactory profit or to provide for the
maintenance of capital to replace the decrease in the value of
equipment

73 NTAldon
Maintenance _conveys the idea of constantly keeping a property in good condition;
Repairs _connotes replacing or mending broken or worn parts of a property.
Service life of the property _is the period during which the use of property is economically
feasible. Both physical and functional depreciation are taken into consideration in determining
service life. The term is synonymous with economic or useful life. In estimating the probable
service life, it is assumed that a reasonable amount of maintenance and repairs will be carried out at
the expense of the property owner.
Recovery Period_ The number of years over which the basis of the property is recovered through
the accounting process. For the classical methods of depreciation, this is normally the useful life.
Under the MACRS, this period is the property class for the General Depreciation System (GDS),
and it is the class life for the Alternative Depreciation System (ADS)
Present Value _ The value of the asset in its condition at the time of valuation
Salvage Value_ is the net amount of money obtainable from the sale of the used property over and
above any charges involved in removal and sale.
If a property is capable of further service, its salvage value may be higher. This is not necessarily true, however, because
other factors, such as location of the property, existing price levels, market supply and demand, and difficulty in
dismantling, may have an effect. The term salvage value implies that the asset can give some type of further service and is
worth more than merely its scrap or junk value.

74 NTAldon
Scrap or junk value_ is the amount of money obtained when the property cannot
be disposed as a useful unit but rather dismantled and sold as junk to be used again as
a manufacturing raw material.
Book value _ also known as depreciated value, is the worth of the property as
recorded in the books of account of the enterprise and is equal to the original cost
less the amounts which have been charged to depreciation. It is sometimes called the
unamortized value.
Market value _ The price which could be obtained for an asset if it were placed on
sale in the open market. Is the amount which a willing buyer will pay to a willing
seller for the property when neither one is under compulsion to buy or sell.
Fair Value _ The value is usually determined by a disinterested third party in order
to establish a price that is fair to both the seller and the buyer
Replacement value _ The cost necessary to replace an existing property at any
given time with one at least equally capable of rendering the same service.
Adjusted Cost basis_ The original cost of the asset, adjusted by allowable
increases or decrease , is used to compute depreciation and depletion deductions.
For example, the cost of any improvement to a capital asset with a useful life greater
than one year increases the original cost basis, an d a casualty or theft loss decreases
it. If the basis is altered , the depreciation deduction may need to be adjusted.
Basis, or cost basis_ The initial cost of acquiring an asset (purchase price plus tax)
, including transportation expenses and other normal costs of making an asset
serviceable for its intended use. This amount is also called the unadjusted cost
75 basis.

Methods of Depreciation
A. Uniform Depreciation
1. Straight Line Method
This is the simplest and most widely used method compared to any other method. It is
based on uniform annual charge. It doesnt take into account the interest or profit earned
on accumulated depreciation fund. It is a standard accounting method acceptable by the
Bureau of Internal Revenue.

d Tn n d
where:
d = periodic depreciation
dTn= total depreciation after nth period
FC SV FC = First cost
d SV= Salvage Value
L
BVn= Book value after nth period
BVn FC n d L = Service Life
n = nth period
76 NTAldon
2. Sinking Fund Method
It is based on uniform annual charge. It is assumed that a sinking
fund is created to replace the original cost of equipment. All amounts
in the sinking fund (including interest) earn interest. The company
uses the amount accumulated in its operations, and therefore assumed
to earn interest. It is generally used for economy-study purposes.

B. Non-Uniform Depreciation
1. Declining-Balance-Method
Also known as Matheson formula. The annual
depreciation cost is a constant percentage of the salvage value at
the beginning of the year. The annual depreciation cost differs
every year, and decreases in absolute value as time progresses.
The salvage value of the property can never depreciate to zero.

time progresses. It provides for a rapid depreciation during the early
years of life of property, hence faster recovery of capital

4. Service-Output Method
This method assumes that the total depreciation that has taken place is directly
proportional to the quantity of output of the property up to that time. This method has the
advantage of making the unit cost of depreciation constant and giving low depreciation
expense during periods of low production.

## FC = first cost of equipment

C. Depletion
This method is usually applicable to natural resources such as petroleum
deposits, natural gas, mines, timberlands, etc. A depletion fund is provided for the
recovery of the capital invested in the said undertaking. The annual charge set aside
for the gradual extraction is called depletion cost.

1. Unit Method
This method is similar to service output method of depreciation. The
depletion charge depends upon the initial cost of the property and the number of
units in the property.

dn
Fc SV
Q n
QT

2. Percentage Method
This method allows a fixed percentage of the gross income received during
the year to be the depletion charge. Considering that the total depletion charge may
exceed the initial cost of the property, it is required that for any year the depletion
charge should not exceed 50% of the net taxable income for that year obtained by
deducting all expenses excluding depletion from the gross income.

C. Modified Accelerated Cost Recovery System (MACRS)
The principal method for computing depreciation deductions for property in engineering projects in the U.S.. Unlike
the conventional method of computing depreciation which requires estimates of useful life (L) and salvage value
(SV) at the end of useful life, in MARCS, the SV is defined to be zero, and the useful life estimates are not
used directly in calculating depreciation amounts.
MACRS consists of two systems for computing depreciation deductions; The main system is called
General Depreciation System (GDS), and the second system is called the Alternative Depreciation

When an asset is depreciated under MACRS, the following information is needed before deductions can be calc:
The cost basis (B)
The date the property was placed in service
The property class and recovery period
The MACRS depreciation method to be used (GDS or ADS)
The time convention that applies (half-year)

Note: The depreciation period during the first year is only year. The other is extended after the last year of the
recovery period:
Example: Recovery period = 3 years
1st year = 0.5 year; 2nd year = 1 year; 3rd year = 1 year; 4th year = 0.5 year

GDS nonresidential real and residential rental property classes: SL

ADS: The SL method for both personal and real property over the
Half-year time convention is used in depreciation calculations for
tangible personal property. If asset is disposed of before the full
recovery period is used, then only half of the normal depreciation
deduction can be taken for that year.
If the asset is disposed of in year n+1 the final BV of the asset will be
zero.

Sample MACRS Problem

## 1. A firm purchased and placed in service a new piece of

semiconductor manufacturing equipment. The cost basis for the
equipment is P100,000. Using MACRS Method, determine
(a) the depreciation charge permissible in the
fourth year,
(b) the cumulative depreciation through the third
year, and
(c) the BV at the end of the fourth year,
(d) the BV at the end of the fifth year if the
equipment is disposed of at that time.

Solution:
From Table N-1, the semi-conductor (electronic manufacturing equipment has a class life of six years and a GDS recovery
period of five years (Asset Class 36).

(a) The depreciation deduction, or cost-recovery allowance , that is allowable in year four (d4) is =0.1152

b) Accumulated depreciation through year three,d3, is the sum of depreciation amounts in years one through three:
dT3=d1+d2+d3
dT 3 100,000(0.20 0.32 0.192) P71,200
c) The BV at the end of year four (BV4) is the cost basis less depreciation charges in years from one through four:
BV4 100,000 100,000 (0.20 0.32 0.192 0.1152) P17,280
e) The depreciation deduction in year five when the equipment is disposed of prior to year six.
d5=(0.5)(0.1152)(100,00)= P5,760

FIXED CAPITAL INVESTMENT
Before an industrial plant can be put into operation, a large
amount of money must be supplied to purchase and install
the necessary machinery and equipment. Land and service
facilities must be obtained, and the plant must be erected
complete with all piping, controls and services. In addition,
it is necessary to have money available for the payment of
expenses involved in the plant operation.

These plant components include the land, processing buildings,
administrative and other offices, warehouse, laboratories,
transportation, shipping and receiving facilities, utility and waste-
disposal facilities, shops, and other permanent part of the plant.
The construction overhead cost consists of field-office and supervision
expenses, home-office expenses, engineering expenses, miscellaneous
construction costs, contractors fees, and contingencies. In some cases,
construction overhead is proportioned between manufacturing and
non-manufacturing fixed-capital investment.

ACCOUNTING FUNDAMENTALS
All accounting is based on the fundamental accounting equation, which is ;

## Assets = liabilities + owners equity

Where:
assets _are those things of monetary value that the firm possesses, liabilities _are those
things of monetary value that the firm owes, and owners equity _is the worth of what the
firm owes to the stockholders (also referred to as equities, net worth, etc.)

## Basic Engineering Accounting Terms:

Revenue = total income (or total savings)
Net profits = Gross Profits - income tax
Gross profits = Net sales Costs of Sales
Income tax = (Gross Profits) ( tax rate)
Cash flow = Net Profits + Depreciation

Generally Accepted Accounting Principles

## GAAP is a codification of how CPA firms and corporations prepare and

present their business income and expense, assets and liabilities on their
financial statements. GAAP is not a single accounting rule, but rather the
aggregate of many rules on how to account for various transactions. The
basic principles underlying GAAP accounting are set forth below.

## 1. Principle of regularity: Regularity can be defined as conformity to enforced rules

and laws.
2. Principle of consistency: This principle states that when a business has once fixed a
method for the accounting treatment of an item, it will enter all similar items that
follow in exactly the same way.
3. Principle of sincerity: According to this principle, the accounting unit should
reflect in good faith the reality of the company's financial status.
4. Principle of the permanence of methods: This principle aims at allowing the
5. Principle of non-compensation: One should show the full details of the financial
information and not seek to compensate a debt with an asset, revenue with an
expense, etc.
109 NTAldon
Generally Accepted Accounting Principles

6. Principle of prudence: This principle aims at showing the reality "as is": one should
not try to make things look prettier than they are. Typically, revenue should be
recorded only when it is certain and a provision should be entered for an expense
which is probable.
7. Principle of continuity: When stating financial information, one should assume
that the business will not be interrupted. This principle mitigates the principle of
prudence: assets do not have to be accounted at their disposable value, but it is
accepted that they are at their historical value.
8. Principle of periodicity: Each accounting entry should be allocated to a given
period, and split accordingly if it covers several periods. If a client pre-pays a
subscription (or lease, etc.), the given revenue should be split to the entire time-span
and not counted for entirely on the date of the transaction.
9. Principle of Full Disclosure/Materiality: All information and values pertaining
to the financial position of a business must be disclosed in the records.
10. Principle of Utmost Good Faith: All the information regarding to the firm should
be disclosed to the insurer before the insurance policy is taken

events regardless of when cash transactions occur. The general idea is that economic
events are recognized by matching revenues to expenses (the matching principle) at
the time in which the transaction occurs rather than when payment is made (or
received). This method allows the current cash inflows/outflows to be combined with
future expected cash inflows/outflows to give a more accurate picture of a company's
current financial condition

FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
A. Income Statement

## The income statement is a computation of the projects total

revenue and total costs for one period of fiscal year, thereby arriving at
the concerns net income or deficit within the period, together with
its performance in terms of profitability and cost control. It differs
from the cash budget in the sense that it follows the actual concept
in accounting, by which revenues should be associated with the costs
involved in realizing the former within the period of occurrence. A
model format for income statement preparation is presented. An
analysis of each account in the presentation follows:

NET SALES
Net sales_ in pesos are arrived at by subtracting sales returns,
allowances, and discounts from gross sales.

CASH FLOW
The cash-flow statement or the cash budget is a systematic presentation of cash receipts
and disbursements for a given operating period or fiscal year, taking for granted the accrual
concept in account illustrates a cash budget model , showing the inflow and presenting a
large-scale schedule for the determination of ending cash balance sheet. The budget is used to
estimate future loans or financing needs, optimize the timing of project financing, and
maximize profitability by efficient cash utilization.
a. Cash receipts are subdivided into those which flow from financing the project and
those coming from sales revenues.
Cash flow from financing may take the form of stocks issued including stock premium or
discount being closed, the net of the latter two accounts being closed to the paid-in surplus
account; bond issues: and long-terms loans.
In computing for cash in-flows from sales revenues; the profit before-income tax account is
entered in the budget, and this is increased to the period such as depreciation and
amortization.
Other account which increase the entries are increases in account payable, accrued expenses,
and deferred income.
b. Under cash disbursement, out-of-pocket expenses on intangible assets acquisition are
entered. Other account included here are decreases in account payable, notes payable, bank-
drafts payable, accrued expenses, mortgage bonds payable and long-terms notes receivable,
inventories, and investment. Cash dividends issued and income tax payments also comprise
cash disbursements.
The beginning cash balance for the period is then added to the net cash flow to arrive at
ending cash balance in the balance sheet. It should be noted that all accounts entered in the
118
cash budget should tally with the same account in the income statement and balance sheet.

BALANCE SHEET
The balance sheet shows the assets derived by the project from corresponding liabilities and equities
(net worth).It is an overall picture of a films financial condition as of a certain time. Furthermore, it
shows the major changes brought about by the projects operation within the fiscal period. The assets are
entered under the debit portion of the balance sheet while the liability and equity claims on these assets
are found under the credit portion. Exhibit F-3 present a model balance sheet.

Comprising the asset portion of the statement are current asset, fixed asset, and intangible assets.

Current assets _ to those type with are either cash account or other account expected to be converted
into cash with one year. The item listed in this division are of course cash, marketable securities,
receivables, inventories, prepaid expense, and deferred change. The latter two accounts signify cash
expenditures for the services of a creditor not yet received in full by the project in question, such as pre-
paid insurance.

Fixed assets _ are the tangible assets of an enterprise of an enterprise, the service life of which usually
extends to over one year. Land, building, machinery, and equipment are typical example of fixed assets.
The balance sheets or book value of these assets are derived by subtracting their accumulated depreciation
from their cost of acquisition, depreciation being the portion of cost allocated to one fiscal period.

Intangible assets _service life, like fixed will, patents, copyrights, leases, licenses, franchises, and
organization and pre-operation expenses fall under other assets. When an intangible asset is amortized,
the accumulated amortization account is not entered in the balance sheet, which contains only the net
book value of assets in this category.

stockholders. They have the right to call meetings, to vote, to elect
members of the board of directors, amend charter and
constitution and by-laws, inspect books of the corporation, receive
dividends, share remaining assets if corporation is dissolved.
PREFERRED STOCK_
_ also represent ownership. And it possesses the same rights as
common stock, but in addition, it enjoys certain preferences, not
possessed by common stock. It has priority over common stock in
receipt of dividends, and it is usually guaranteed a fixed annual
dividend, regardless of the amount of the earnings of the
corporation. In case the corporation is dissolved, the owner of the

EBITDA
EBITDA_ an initialism for earnings before interest, taxes,
depreciation, and amortization. It is a non-GAAP (generally accepted
accounting principles) metric that is measured exactly as stated. All interest,
tax, depreciation and amortization entries in the income statement are
reversed out from the bottom-line net income. It purports to measure cash
earnings without accrual accounting, canceling tax-jurisdiction effects, and
canceling the effects of different capital structures.
EBITDA differs from the operating cash flow in a cash flow statement
primarily by excluding payments for taxes or interest as well as changes in
working capital.
EBITDA also differs from free cash flow because it excludes cash
requirements for replacing capital assets (capex). EBITDA margin refers to
EBITDA divided by total revenue. EBITDA margin measures the extent to
which cash operating expenses use up revenue.
Use by debtholders_EBITDA is widely used in loan covenants. The theory
is that it measures the cash earnings that can be used to pay interest and repay
the principal. Since interest is paid before income tax is calculated, the
debtholder can ignore taxes. They are not interested in whether the business
can replace its assets when they wear out, therefore can ignore capital
amortization

Minimum Acceptable Rate o Return (MARR)
Also known as Minimum Attractive Rate of Return or known as hurdle
rate, the interest rate used in the valuation of profitability of a project in
Present Worth, FutureWorth and Annual Worth Methods.

## It is usually a policy issue by the top management of an organization in view

of the following considerations:
The amount of money available for investment,
Number of good projects available for investment,
The amount of perceived risk associated with investment opportunities available
and
Type of organization involved.

## In business and engineering, the minimum acceptable rate of return,

often abbreviated MARR, or hurdle rate is the minimum rate of return on
a project a manager or company is willing to accept before starting a project,
given its risk and the opportunity cost of forgoing other projects.

130 NTAldon
Minimum Acceptable Rate of Return; Hurdle Rate
The hurdle rate is usually determined by evaluating existing opportunities in
operations expansion, rate of return for investments, and other factors deemed
relevant by management.
A risk premium can also be attached to the hurdle rate if management feels
that specific opportunities inherently contain more risk than others that could
be pursued with the same resources.
A common method for evaluating a hurdle rate is to apply the discounted cash
flow method to the project, which is used in net present value models.
The hurdle rate determines how rapidly the value of the dollar decreases out in
time, which, parenthetically, is a significant factor in determining the payback
period for the capital project when discounting forecast savings and spending
back to present-day terms.
Most companies use a 12% hurdle rate, which is based on the fact that the
S&P 500 typically yields returns somewhere between 8% and 11%
(annualized). Companies operating in industries with more volatile markets
might use a slightly higher rate in order to offset risk and attract investors.
The hurdle rate is frequently used as synonym of cutoff rate, benchmark and
cost ofNTAldon

2. Annual Cost Method
The annual cost of the alternatives including the
minimum return on investment is determined. The
alternative with the least annual cost is chosen. This method,
like the rate of return on investment method, applies only to
alternatives which have a uniform cost data for each year and
a single investment of capital at the beginning of the project
life.

3. Discounted Cash Flow,
Internal Rate of Return (IRR)
The method of approach for discounted cash flow takes into account the time value of money
and is based on the amount of the investment that is unreturned at the end of each year during
the estimated life of the equipment.

A trial-and-error method is used to establish a rate of return which can be applied to yearly
cash flow so that the original investment is reduced to zero (or to salvage and land value plus
working capital investment) during the project life.

Thus, the rate of return by this method is equivalent to the maximum interest rate (normally
after taxes) at which money could be borrowed to finance the project over its life that would just
be sufficient to pay all principal and interest accumulated on the outstanding principal.

## The discount rate reflects two things:

1. The time value of money - investors would rather have cash immediately than
having to wait and must therefore be compensated by paying for the delay.
2. A risk premium - reflects the extra return investors demand because they want
to be compensated for the risk that the cash flow might not materialize after
all.NTAldon
136
3. Discounted Cash Flow,
Internal Rate of Return (IRR)
Internal Rate of Return is the most widely used rate of return method for
performing engineering economic analyses. It is sometimes called by several names,
such as the investors method, the discounted cash flow method, and the profitability
index. Also means that the value of this measure depends only on the cash flows from an
investment and not on any assumptions about reinvestment rates.

The internal rate of return (IRR) is a rate of return used in capital budgeting to
measure and compare the profitability of investments. It is also called the discounted
cash flow rate of return (DCFROR) or simply the rate of return (ROR). In the
context of savings and loans the IRR is also called the effective interest rate. The
term internal refers to the fact that its calculation does not incorporate
environmental factors (e.g. the interest rate).
The internal rate of return is the rate of return promised by an investment project
over its useful life. It is some time referred to simply as yield on project. The
internal rate of return is computed by finding the discount rate that equates the
present value of a project's cash out flow with the present value of its cash inflow In
other words, the internal rate of return is that discount rate that will cause the net
present value of a project to be equal to zero.

Liquidity is the availability of liquid assets to an enterprise.
Liquid assets are those assets held in or easily converted into cash.

Current Assets
1. A. Current Ratio
Current Liabilities
The ratio is mainly used to give an idea of the company's ability to pay back its short-
term liabilities (debt and payables) with its short-term assets (cash, inventory, receivables).
The higher the current ratio, the more capable the company is of paying its obligations. A ratio
under 1 suggests that the company would be unable to pay off its obligations if they came due
at that point. While this shows the company is not in good financial health, it does not
necessarily mean that it will go bankrupt - as there are many ways to access financing - but it is
definitely not a good sign.

Current Assets Inventories
1.B. Quick or Acid Test Ratio
Current Liabilities
A stringent indicator that determines whether a firm has enough short-
term assets to cover its immediate liabilities without selling inventory.
The acid-test ratio is far more strenuous than the working capital ratio,
primarily because the working capital ratio allows for the inclusion of
inventory assets.
Companies with ratios of less than 1 cannot pay their current liabilities
and should be looked at with extreme caution. Furthermore, if the acid-
test ratio is much lower than the working capital ratio, it means current
assets are highly dependent on inventory. Retail stores are examples of
The term comes from the way gold miners would test whether
their findings were real gold nuggets. Unlike other metals, gold does not
corrode in acid; if the nugget didn't dissolve when submerged in acid, it
was said to have passed the acid test. If a company's financial statements
pass the figurative acid test, this indicates its financial integrity.

166 NTAldon
Cost of Goods
1.C. Inventory Turn-Over Ratio
Average Inventory
The liquidity of a firm's inventories is reflected in the number of time the firm's average
inventory is turned over during the year. The inventory ratio requires confirmation by other
measures and a more thorough examination of contents because rapid turnover on a few items
or a slow turnover on others could skew the results.

Example:
Cost of Goods Sold = P 1,520,891
Inventory Beginning = P 139,725
Inventory Ending = P 141,410

## Cost of Gods Sold 1,520,891

Inventory Turn-Over Ratio 10.82
Average Inventory 139,725 141,410
2

The company turns its inventory almost eleven times a year (almost every month). It's a good
strategy to mention in your plan the false assumptions associated with this conclusion.
Average inventory is the average of the beginning and ending inventories. Sales are sometimes
used in the numerator of the inventory ratio rather than the cost of goods sold. This would
include markup, a variable which fluctuates across different situations.
167 NTAldon
Cash Short Term or Marketable Securities
1.D. Cash Ratio
Current Liabilities

## The cash ratio is the most conservative liquidity ratio of all. It

only measures the ability of a firm's cash, along with
investments that are easily converted into cash, to pay its short-
term obligations. Along with the quick ratio, a higher cash ratio
generally means the company is in better financial shape.

168 NTAldon
2. Tests of Debt-Service
These tests are employed to present the
projects ability to meet long-term obligations.
Total Liabilities
2. A. Debt to Net Worth Ratio
Total Equities
Measure used in the analysis of financial statements to show the
amount of protection available to creditors. The ratio equals total
liabilities divided by total stockholders' equity; also called debt to net
worth ratio. A high ratio usually indicates that the business has a lot of
risk because it must meet principal and interest on its obligations.
Potential creditors are reluctant to give financing to a company with a
high debt position. However, the magnitude of debt depends on the
type of business. For example, a bank has a high debt ratio but its assets
are generally liquid. A utility can afford a higher ratio than a
manufacturer because its earnings can be controlled by rate
adjustments. Usually, book value is used to measure a firm's debt and
equity securities in calculating the ratio. Market value may be a more
realistic measure, however, because it takes into account current
169 market
NTAldon conditions.
Long term Liabilites
2.B. Total Capitalization Ratio
Long term Liabilities Equities
The capitalization ratio measures the debt component of a
company's capital structure, or capitalization (i.e., the sum of
long-term debt liabilities and shareholders' equity) to support a
company's operations and growth.

## Long-term debt is divided by the sum of long-term debt and

shareholders' equity. This ratio is considered to be one of the more
meaningful of the "debt" ratios - it delivers the key insight into a
company's use of leverage.
There is no right amount of debt. Leverage varies
according to industries, a company's line of business and its stage
of development. Nevertheless, common sense tells us that low
debt and high equity levels in the capitalization ratio indicate
investment quality.

Earnings before Interest and Taxes
2.C. Debt Service Ratio
Interest

## The ratio measures debts servicing capacity of a business so far as

interest on long-term loans is concerned. This ratio shows how many
times the interest charges are covered by the earnings. Debt service
ratios is also known as interest coverage ratio.
The interest coverage ratio is used to determine how easily a
company can pay interest expenses on outstanding debt. The ratio is
calculated by dividing a company's earnings before interest and taxes
(EBIT) by the company's interest expenses for the same period. The
lower the ratio, the more the company is burdened by debt expense.
When a company's interest coverage ratio is only 1.5 or lower, its
ability to meet interest expenses may be questionable. The ability to
stay current with interest payment obligations is absolutely critical for
a company as a going concern. While the non-payment of debt
principal is a seriously negative condition, a company finding itself in
financial/operational difficulties can stay alive for quite some time as
long as it is able to service its interest expenses.

2.D. Fixed Ch arg e Coverage Ratio
Earnings before Interest & Taxes Lease Payments

Lease Payments Interest Ch arg es

Equation that indicates whether the company is able to meet its fixed commitments (i.e.,
interest) from its profits. A high ratio reflects favorably upon the firm's ability to refinance
obligations as they mature. The ratio equals earnings available to meet fixed charges divided by
fixed charges. Fixed charges include rent and interest.
The fixed charge coverage ratio includes lease payments as well as interest payments.
Lease payments, like interest payments, must be met on an annual basis. The fixed charge
coverage ratio is especially important for firms that extensively lease equipment, for example.

## Here is the calculation for the fixed charge coverage ratio:

EBIT, Taxes, and Interest Expense are taken from the company's income statement. Lease
Payments are taken from the balance sheet and are usually shown as a footnote on the balance
sheet. The result of the fixed charge coverage ratio is the number of times the company can
cover its fixed charges per year. The higher the number, the better the debt position of the
firm, similar to the times interest earned ratio.
Like all ratios, you can only make a determination if the result of this ratio is good or bad
if you use either historical data from the company or if you use comparable data from the
industry.
172 NTAldon
The above formula can be explained with the help of an example:
For example, a company has P13,000 as EBIT and P2,000 as lease payments
and P1,000 as interest payments the fixed charge coverage ratio is measured as:

## Fixed charge coverage ratio 13,000 2,000

5
1,000 3,000
This means that the company has earned five times its fixed charges, the
company is able to pay the fixed charges of the company.

Therefore this means that by calculating the fixed charge coverage ratio, it
helps in ascertaining the companys ability to pay the various fixed costs of the
company in case the business tends to fall. Every business would have its own
share of risks involved and every company must be well prepared to handle all the
expenses and losses that can occur to the company. This is why it is important to
calculate the fixed charge coverage ratio and it enables a business to understand
the loss or expense taking capacity of the business in case some misfortune strikes
the company. This ratio like all other ratios can provide a basic idea of the standing
of the companys finances based on the historical data provided to you. Therefore
it is important that you determine fixed charge coverage ratio to ascertain the
standing of the company.

different categories and sub-categories of goods and services, being combined
to produce the overall index with weights reflecting their shares in the total of
the consumer expenditures covered by the index. It is one of several price
indices calculated by most national statistical agencies. The annual percentage
change in a CPI is used as a measure of inflation. A CPI can be used to index

pensions, for regulating prices and for deflating monetary magnitudes to show
changes

Corporation _ is a distinct legal entity, separate from the individuals who
own it, and which can engage in practically any business transaction which a

from its owners and managers.
This separation gives the corporation four major advantages:
1) It can raise capital from large investors by issuing stocks and bonds;
2) it permits easy transfer of ownership interest by trading shares of stock;
3) it allows limited liability-personal liability is limited to the amount of the

used interchangeably, but they always refer to values in terms of
other currencies.
Inflation, on the other hand, refers to the value of the currency in

face value of a currency without reducing its exchange rate is a
redenomination, not a devaluation or revaluation.

Gross Domestic Product (GDP)_ measures the value of all goods and
services produced within a nations borders regardless of the nationality of the
producer. GDP measures a countrys economic activity regardless of who owns
the productive assets in that country. For example, the output United States-
owned companies based in the Philippines is considered part of Philippines GDP
rather than part of the U.S.. GDP may be calculated in three ways: (1) by adding
up all the value of all goods and services produced (2) by adding up the
expenditures on goods and services at the time of sale, or (3) by adding up
producers incomes from the sale of goods or services .
GDP is usually divided by its population to arrive at GDP per head. The figure is
then converted to dollars to allow for its comparison between countries. If GDP
grows at a higher rate than the population, standards of living are said to be
rising. If the population is growing higher than GDP, living of standards are said
to be falling. GDP per head does not take the cost of living into account.
Gross National Product (GNP)_ used to describe in monetary value the
total annual flow of goods and services in the economy of a nation. It is
measured by totaling all personal spending, all government spending, and all
investment spending by a nations industry both domestically and all over the

Life cycle_ refers to the notion that a fair, holistic assessment requires
the assessment of raw material production, manufacture, distribution,
use and disposal including all intervening transportation steps
necessary or caused by the product's existence. The sum of all those

Necessities _ are those products or services that are required to
support human life activities that will be purchased in somewhat the
same quantity even though the price varies considerably.
Non-recurring costs_ are those which arte non-repetitive, even
though the total expenditure may be cumulative over a relatively short
period of time.. For example, the purchase of a real estate upon which
the plant will be constructed is a non-recurring cost, as the cost of
constructing the plant itself.
Obsolescence - refers to the changes external to the equipment such
as, decrease or disappearance of demand, invention of more efficient
equipment or style of products may have changed considerably.
Organization cost_ an intangible value_ is the amount of money spent

Opportunity Cost_ is incurred because of the use of limited
resources, such as the opportunity to use those resources to
monetary advantage in an alternative use is foregone.
Overhead expenses _ consist of those expenses which cannot be
readily included under direct materials and direct labor. Also
known as indirect costs or burden.
Ownership or proprietorship _ it represents the investment of a

197 NTAldon
Partnership _ is an association of two or more persons for the
purpose of engaging in a business profit. Usually formed by the
voluntary agreement of the partners either verbally or in writing.
The agreement among the partners usually states the relations
between partners on matters relating to the proportion in which
profits or losses are to be shared, their investments , rights and
duties of each partner, and provisions for the withdrawal of any
partner or the dissolution of the partnership.
A partnership has many advantages, among which are its low cost
and ease of formation. Because more than one person makes
contributions, a partnership typically has larger amount of capital
available for business use. Since the personal assets of all partners
stand behind the business, a partnership can borrow money more
easily from a bank. Each partner pays only personal income tax
on his or her share of a partnerships taxable income.
Patent _ is an exclusive right granted by the government for the

Producer Price Index (PPI)_ is a family of indexes that measure the average change
over time in the prices received by domestic producers of goods and services. PPIs
measure price change from the perspective of the seller. The headline PPI (for
finished goods) is a measure of the average price level for a fixed basket of capital and
consumer goods for prices received by producers. The producer price index for
finished goods is a major indicator of commodity prices in the manufacturing sector.
These prices are more sensitive to supply and demand pressures than the more
comprehensive consumer price index. Changes in the producer price index are
considered a leading indicator for consumer price changes, although only a small

Sole proprietorship _ or individual ownership, is the simplest of
person who is responsible for the operation, firms policies, and is

disadvantage of a proprietorship is that it cannot issue stocks and
bonds, making it difficult to raise capital for any business expansion.

money terminology, P100 invested for one year at 5% interest has a future value of P105.
