Marginal cost benefit analysis
Benefits from new robotics $560,000
Benefits from old robotics $400,000
Cost of new equipment $220,000
Sale of old equipment $70,000
Calculate marginal benefits, costs, net benefit.
What do you recommend that the company do?
What other factors should you consider?

Problem 1 - 2 Solution
Marginal benefits = 560,000 - 400,000 =
Marginal cost = 220,000 - 70,000 =
Net benefits = MB - MC = 10,000
Net benefit positive = recommend
Consider timing, cash flow and risk

Problem 1 - 3
Accrual income versus cash flow
Value of books shipped $760,000
Collected in cash $690,000
Cost of books $300,000
Using accrual accounting show the firms net profit
Using cash accounting show the firms net cash flow
Which of the statements is more useful to the
financial manager and why?

Problem 1 - 3 Solution
Net profit = Sales - Cost of goods sold =
760,000 - 300,000 = 460,000
Net cash flow = Cash receipts - Cost of
goods sold = 690,000 - 300,000 =
Cash flow statement is more useful to
financial manager

Corporate Taxes
EBIT = $92,500
$75,000 to $100,000
Base tax 13,750 + 34% * amount over $75,000

How much are after tax earnings?
What was the firms average tax rate?
