    1 On Jan 1, 2004, You are promoted to Vice President and Chief Financial Officer.
    You immediately recommend that we implement a stock option plan with the
    following particulars.

    Grant Date 1/1/2004
    Vesting Date 1/1/2006
    Number of Shares 1,000,000
    Current Market price of stock $15.75
    Exercise Price $16.75
    Fair Market Value of Option $4.00

    The company utilizes the Fair Value method for recognizing stock option expense.

    2 The company pays all Current Liabilities outstanding as of Dec 31, 2003.

    The company collects $17,000,000 of the outstanding A/R
    and writes off $500,000 of A/R

    3 You notice that the company has a significant amount of excess cash on the Balance
    Sheet. You comment to the CEO (interestingly enough, named Doug) that perhaps you
    could increase the company's bottom line by investing some of these funds in
    various securities.

    So you buy the following shares Classify as
    # of share Symbol $ per share
    100,000 HD 38 Available for Sale
    100,000 GE 34 Available for Sale
    100,000 Dis 24 Trading Securities

    4 On April 1, 2004, we sign a deal to build large ocean going ships for the Navy (Navy Contract)
    We will begin construction of these ships on:

    construction start date 7/1/2004
    construction completion 12/31/2005
    Contract Value $10,000,000
    Estimated Cost to Complete $5,000,000

    You talk with the Production Manager and he is confident that they can estimate
    the costs accurately and ofcourse you can count on the Navy to pay its bills.

    5 In anticipation of these project, I along with the Production Manager determine that
    we will need to acquire a floating dry dock.
    We are unable to access the capital markets necessary to purchase a dry dock, however
    you recommend that we enter into a lease. You locate an available dry dock and
    negotiate the following terms with the owner.

    Economic Life of floating dry dock 25 yrs
    Lease term 25 yrs
    First lease payment due on Jul 1, 2004
    Interest Rate 7.50%
    Each semi-annual lease payment is $955,188
    Taxes and Insurance are included in the lease payment
    listed above. The taxes and insurance are $10,000 per semi-annual payment

    6 The Company has a Defined Benefit Pension Plan which it traditionally has underfunded,
    The particulars for the plan
    as of Jan 1, 2004
    Projected Benefit Obligation 4,400,000
    Plan Assets 2,000,000

    You review the records, meet with the actuaries and determine the following
    variables related to the Defined Benefit Pension Plan as of Dec 31, 2004

    Annual Service Cost for services in 2004 950,000
    Settlement Rate 8.25%
    Expected Rate of Return on Plan Assets 11.00%
    Actual Rate of Return on Plan Assets 11.00%
    Benefits paid to retirees -

    At the end of 2004, the company transfers 750,000 to the Pension trustee.
    Pension expense should be reported as Compensation Expense

    7 It is now December 31st and you look back at your records and note the following:

    Sales of Pleasure boats really took off this year. In fact, your manufacturing plant

    Cost of Boats Produced 55,000,000
    Sales Revenue of Boats 92,000,000
    Cost of Boats Sold 64,000,000

    As of Dec 31, you have collected 95.00% of pleasure boat sales revenue
    As of Dec 31, you have paid 92% of the cost of boats produced
    has been paid, the remaining
    amount represents salaries to
    production workers which has
    not been paid.
    The commercial boat business also did well:

    Cost of Boats Produced 45,000,000
    Sales Revenue of Boats 78,000,000
    Cost of Boats Sold 47,000,000

    As of Dec 31, you have collected 80.00% of commercial boat sales revenue
    The remaining amount is recorded
    as a Note Receivable signed Oct 1
    due March 31 earning
    9.00% simple annual interest
    As of Dec 31, you have paid 92% of the cost of boats produced
    has been paid, the remaining
    amount represents salaries to
    production workers which has
    not been paid.

    8 You receive the brokers statement on your investment portfolio and
    the stock prices are now:
    # of share Symbol $ per share
    100,000 HD 44
    100,000 GE 40
    100,000 Dis 20

    9 Ensure that you record all interest payments and amortizations.

    10 The Production Manager turns in the production status report

    Costs Incurred to Date $2,500,000
    Estimated Cost to Complete $3,000,000

    All of the costs incurred in construction have been paid (that is the credit is to Cash).

    We have billed the Navy $1,000,000 for work performed and
    have received $750,000 in payments.

    11 You review the ledgers and make the following determinations

    Depreciation Expense for Property, Plant and Equipment is $5,400,000
    The depreciation above includes Depreciation expense for the Dry Dock.
    Include the Capital Leased Asset as part of Property, Plant, and Equipment.
    Amortization Expense for the Patent is $1,500,000
    50.00% of the prepaid expenses were used up. These expenses
    should be charged to Administrative Expense

    You estimate that $300,000 of your accounts receivable will be uncollectible.

    You determine that Book Income exceeds Taxable Income by $15,000,000
    This difference is related to Long-term assets:
    Your tax rate is 35.00%
