Chapter 3 business finance

Closely held corporations a corporation that is owned by a few individuals who are typically associated with the firms management
balance sheet which shows what assets the company owns and who has claims on those assets as of a given date—for example, December 31, 2014.
annual report A report issued annually by a corporation to its stockholders. It contains basic financial statements as well as management’s analysis of the firm’s past operations and future prospects.
annual report is the most important report that corporations issue to stockholders, and it contains two types of information.
verbal section of the annual report describes the firm’s operating results during the past year and discusses new developments that will affect future operations the
the annual report provides these four basic financial statements: balance sheet, income statement, statement of cash flows, the statement of stock holders equity
income statement which shows the firm’s sales and costs (and thus profits) during some past period—for example, 2014.
The statement of cash flows which shows how much cash the firm began the year with, how much cash it ended up with, and what it did to increase or decrease its cash.
.The statement of stockholders’ equity, which shows the amount of equity the stockholders had at the start of the year, the items that increased or decreased equity, and the equity at the end of the year.
management’s verbal statements attempt to explain why things turned out the way they did and what might happen in the future.
firm’s financial statements report what has actually happened to its assets, earnings, and dividends over the past few years,
annual report can be used to help forecast future earnings and dividends
balance sheet a “snapshot” of a firm’s position at a specific point in time
left side of the balance sheet statement shows the assets that the company owns
right side of the balance sheet statement shows the firm’s liabilities and stockholders’ equity, which are claims against the firm’s assets.
Current assets consist of assets that should be converted to cash within one year; and they include cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, and inventory.
Long-term assets are assets expected to be used for more than one year; they include plant and equipment in addition to intellectual property such as patents and copyrights
net of accumulated depreciation Plant and equipment is generally reported as
Allied’s long-term assets consist entirely of net plant and equipment, and we often refer to them as “net fixed assets.”
“net fixed assets.” net plant and equitpment
Book value per share total common equity/shares outstanding
preferred stock generally like debt because it pays a fixed amount each year
preferred stock it is like common stock because a failure to pay the preferred dividend does not expose the firm to bankruptcy.
liabilities (or money the company owes to others) and stockholders’ equity The claims against assets are of two basic types
Current liabilities consist of claims that must be paid off within one year, including accounts payable, accruals (total of accrued wages and accrued taxes), and notes payable to banks and other short-term lenders that are due within one year.
Long-term debt includes bonds that mature in more than a year.
stockholders’ equity it is the amount that stockholders paid to the company when they bought shares the company sold to raise capital, in addition to all of the earnings the company has retained over the years:
stock holders equity formula paid in capital plus retained earnings
retained earnings are not just the earnings retained in the latest year—they are the cumulative total of all of the earnings the company has earned during its life.
stockholders equity as residential total assets-total liabilities
If Allied had invested surplus funds in bonds backed by subprime mortgages and the bonds’ value fell below their purchase price, the true value of the firm’s assets would have declined, liabilities would not change, common equity declines, reduction in retained earnings and equity, assets = liabilities, sheet would balance
bonds common stock is more risky than
Assets on the balance sheet are are listed by the length of time before they will be converted to cash (inventories and accounts receivable) or used by the firm (fixed assets).
hey must be paid: claims are listed in the order in which
within a few days Accounts payable must generally be paid
promptly accruals must be paid
one year notes payable to banks must be paid within
ownership and need never be “paid off.” stockholders’ equity accounts represent

Assets must, of course equal liabilities and equity; otherwise, the balance sheet does not balance.
only the cash and equivalents account represents actual spendable money
dollar terms, assets are reported in
Accounts receivable represent credit sales that have not yet been collected.
raw materials, work in process, and finished goods Inventories show the cost of
Net fixed assets represent the cost of the buildings and equipment used in operations minus the depreciation that has been taken on these assets.
The noncash assets should generate cash over time, but they do not represent cash in hand.
working capital Current assets are often called
working capital these assets “turn over
turn over they are used and then replaced throughout the year
The total of accounts payable, accruals, and notes payable represent current liabilities on its balance sheet.
net working capital If we subtract current liabilities from current assets, the difference is called

interest-bearing notes payable which incur interest expense that is included as a financing cost on the firm’s income statement
net operating working capital Current assets minus non-interest-bearing current liabilities.

A company’s total debt includes its short-term and long-term interest-bearing liabilities.
Total liabilities equal total debt plus the company’s “free” (non-interest bearing) liabilities.
total debt formula short term debt + long term debt
total liabilities formula total debt + (accounts payable + accruals)
“hybrid” securities such as preferred stock, convertible bonds, and long-term leases
Preferred stock is a hybrid between common stock and debt,
convertible bonds are debt securities that give the bondholder an option to exchange their bonds for shares of common stock.

balance sheet. Every entity—including state and local governments, nonprofit agencies, and individual households—has
The balance sheet summarizes the assets that the firm owns and the debt and equity capital that was used to finance those assets. The assets are divided into those expected to be used within a year and those expected to be used for more than one year. liabilities and capital are divided into those items that must be paid off within a year and those that have longer maturities
paid-in capital, retained earnings Stockholders’ equity consists of
paid-in capital which is the amount of money the firm has raised by issuing newly created shares to stockholders,
retained earnings which is the sum of all past earnings minus all past dividends.
500 firm has current assets consisting of $100 cash, $300 of accounts receivable, and $400 of inventories. Its current liabilities include $200 of accounts payable, $100 of accrued wages and taxes, and $200 of notes payable to its bank. The cash balance is not considered “excess” cash. What is its NOWC?

Earnings per share (EPS) net income/common shares outstanding
dividends per share dividends paid to common stockholders/ common shares outstanding
book value per share total common equity/common shares outstanding
operating income Earnings from operations before interest and taxes (i.e., EBIT).
operating income is derived from the firm’s regular core business—in Allied’s case, from producing and selling food products. Moreover, it is calculated before deducting interest expenses and taxes, which are considered to be non-operating costs
EBIT earnings before interest and taxes
operating income sales revenues-operating costs
depreciation The charge to reflect the cost of assets depleted in the production process. is not a cash outlay.
depreciation is an annual charge against income that reflects the estimated dollar cost of the capital equipment and other tangible assets that were depleted in the production process
amortization amounts to the same thing except that it represents the decline in value of intangible assets such as patents, copyrights, trademarks, and goodwill
costs depreciation and amortization are reported as
ebitda Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization
18,000 Last year Firm X had sales of $100,000, labor costs of $30,000, material costs of $30,000, and depreciation of $10,000. Assume that labor and material costs were paid in cash. The tax rate on its net income was 40%. What was the firm’s net income?
“cash is king.” in finance
statement of cash flows A report that shows how items that affect the balance sheet and income statement affect the firm’s cash flows
statement of cash flows is the accounting report that shows how much cash the firm is generating. The statement is divided into four sections
statement of cash flows sections operating activities, long term investing activities, financing activities, and summary
operating activities This section deals with items that occur as part of normal ongoing operations
Depreciation and amortization The first adjustment relates to depreciation and amortization. Allied’s accountants subtracted depreciation (it has no amortization expense), which is a noncash charge, when they calculated net income. Therefore, depreciation must be added back to net income when cash flow is determined.
Increase in inventories. To make or buy inventory items, the firm must use cash. It may receive some of this cash as loans from its suppliers and workers (payables and accruals); but ultimately, any increase in inventories requires cash
annual report contains both verbal and quantitative information.
quantitative information consists of four financial statements 1) Balance Sheet, (2) Income Statement, (3) Statement of Cash Flows, and (4) Statement of Stockholders’ Equity.

investors, managers, and stock analysts. cash flow is important to
The equation for free cash flow is: FCF = [EBIT(1 – T) + Depreciation and amortization] – [Captial expenditures + ΔNet operating working captial]
free cash flow is the cash flow actually available for payments to all investors (stockholders and debtholders) after the company has made investments in fixed assets, new products, and operating working capital
bad Negative FCF is not always
negative FCF means that the company does not have means the company doesnt have sufficient internal funds to finance its investments in fixed assets and working capital, and that it will have to raise new money in the capital markets to pay for these investments.
bad, because the company is probably experiencing operating problems If FCF is negative because after-tax operating income is negative this is

Market Value Added represents the difference between the money stockholders have invested in the firm versus the cash they could receive if the firm were sold.
The equation for MVA is: MVA = (Shares outstanding × Stock price) – Total common equity
the difference is maximized Shareholder wealth is maximized when
the higher the firms MVA, the better the job management is doing for its shareholders.
economic value added is sometimes called “economic profit and it is closely related to MVA
The equation for EVA is: = EBIT(1 – T) – (Total investor-supplied operating capital × After-tax percentage cost of capital)
Note that total invested capital is equal to the sum of notes payable, long-term debt, and total common equity
a deduction for the cost of equity EVA differs from net income because EVA has
