1. Using the HP income statement on P85,
a. Compute NOPAT for 2004 (4).

NOPAT=Operating Income - Tax
For Year 2004
NOPAT = \$4,227-\$699 = \$3,528 million

2. Referring to HP's balance sheet (p 86),
a. Compute HP's net operating assets (NOA) and net financial obligations (NFO) for 2004. (Hint: the computation is simpler if you utilize NOA = NFO + SE ).

Total Current Assets = 42901
Non Interest Bearing Current Liabilities=28588-2511=26077
Net Current Assets = 42901-26077= 16824
Non-Current Assets = 6649+6657+15828+4103=33237
Total Net Operating Assets = 33237+16824=50061

Check: Debt and other liabilities =2511+4623+5363=12497
Shareholder's equity = 37564

NOA=Shareholder's equity + Debt and Liabilities

b. Using your answer to part 2a, together with your answer to problem 1a, perform a level 1 disaggregation of return on equity (ROE) for 2004 into its operating and non operating components using year-end balances rather than averages. (Hint: the computation is simpler if you utilize NFE = NOPAT - net income).

ROE= Net Income / Shareholders Equity=3497/37564 =9.31%
RNOA=NOPAT/NOA = 3528/50061=7.05%
NFE=NOPAT-Net Income = 3528-3497=31
FLEV=Net Financial Obligations / Equity = 12497/37564=0.33
Net Financial Rate= NFE/Net Financial Obligations=31/12497=0.25%
Return on non-operating component = Financial Leverage*Spread
=6.80%*0.33=2.26%

Hence ROE(9.31%)=RONA(7.05%) + Return on non-operating component (2.26%)

c. Further disaggregate RNOA into its level 2 margin and turnover components using 2004 year-end balances rather than averages.

My comment
NOPAT = Operating Income x (1 - Tax Rate)

NOPAT is a more accurate look at operating efficiency for leveraged companies. It does not include the tax savings many companies get because they have existing debt.
The above calculations are correct.
