Featuring 910 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Capital budgeting improvements can be made.
Examples; 10 of the 910 standard requirements:
- In what ways is the cash flow table used to organize the data for permanent working capital asset decisions similar to and different from the cash flow table used in capital budgeting?
- Why should managers set the required rate of return higher than the rate at which money can be borrowed when making a typical capital budgeting decision?
- When using the net present value method, how does one know whether the true rate of return is greater or less than the discount rate?
- Distinguish between permanent working capital and temporary working capital. Why is the difference important to financial managers?
- If depreciation is an expense, why is it added back to an investment’s net income to compute the net cash flow from that investment?
- An important question is: if a project is undertaken, will failure of the project risk putting the company into bankruptcy?
- What factors must be considered that otherwise may be ignored when the objective is to discount net cash flow after taxes?
- Understand the concepts of operating breakeven and financial breakeven. Why is it important to conduct breakeven analyses?
- What are the major differences between cash flow analyses for an expansion project and those for a replacement project?
- Have you focused too intently on one or two aspects of working capital, ignoring the effects on (or abandoning) other elements?
