2009 2008
EBIT
EBIT(1-T) = NOPAT
Plus: Depreciation Expense
Less: CAPEX
Less: Working Capital Investment
Project Free Cash Flow - $- 0

b. Estimated PFCF for 2009-2014 Year
2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014
EBIT (Growing at 10% per year)
EBIT(1-.40) = NOPAT - -

CALCULATIONS ALL VALUES IN $MILLIONS
A) Dec-09 Dec-08
Revenues
Less: Cost of Goods Sold
Equals: Gross Profits
Less: Operating Expenses excluding depreciation and amortization expense
Selling,General and Administrative Expense

Equals: Earnings before Interest,taxes,depreciation, amortization (EBITDA)
Less:Depreciation and Amortization ( DA)
Equals: Earnings before interest and Taxes. (EBIT) $0 $0
Less: Taxes
Equals: Net Operating Profit after Taxes. ( NOPAT)
Plus Depreciation and Amortization. (DA)
$0 $0
Less: Capital expenditures. (CAPEX)
Less: Increases in net Working capital (WC)
Equals Projected Free Cash Flow ( PFCF) $0 $0

The Major discrepancy is the Depreciation,Depletion and Amortization Expense
