Please help answer
(a) Compute net operating profit after tax (NOPAT) for 2010. Assume that the combined federal and statutory rate is: 37.0%. (Round your answer to the nearest whole number.)
2010 NOPAT = $

(b) Compute net operating assets (NOA) for 2010 and 2009.
2010 NOA = $

2009 NOA = $

(c) Compute RNOA, net operating profit margin (NOPM), and net operating asset turnover (NOAT) for 2010. Do not use NOPM x NOAT to calculate RNOA. (Do not round until final answers. Round to two decimal places.)
2010 RNOA = %
2010 NOPM = %
2010 NOAT =

(d) Compute net operating obligations (NNO) for 2010 and 2009.
2010 NNO = $
2009 NNO = $

(e) Compute return on equity (ROE) for 2010. (Round your answers to two decimal places. Do not round until your final answer.)
2010 ROE = %

(f) Infer the nonoperating return component of ROE for 2010. (Use answers from above to calculate. Round your answer to two decimal places.)
2010 nonoperating return = %

Solution Preview

a) NOPAT = (1-Tax Rate) * EBIT

NOPAT = (1-37%)*696 = 0.63*696 = $438.48 m

b) NOA = Operating Assets - Operating Liabilities

Operating Assets = (Total Assets - Cash ) & Operating Liabilities = Total Liabilities - short term notes - long term debt

NOA 2010 = (6579 - 795) - ...

Solution Summary

The solution computes Non Operating Obiligations, NOPAT, Net Operating Assets, Return on NOA, Net operating Margin, NOAT, Non operating return of ROE, return on Equity (ROE)
