Productos de Caledonia Problema Integrada

En este ensayo presentaremos información sobre los productos de Caledonia en donde analizaremos la conducta de flujos de caja del proyecto libre, en comparación con los beneficios contables obtenidos por los mínimos de caja libre. En adición mostraremos el valor de los proyectos para aislar el proyecto. Pregunta # 1 Caledonia necesita tener independiente de las finanzas regulares de la empresa para poder entender cómo el proyecto contribuirá en relación al valor al negocio. Los beneficios obtenidos de contabilidad tendrán en cuenta la totalidad del negocio y no deberá aislar el proyecto. Daremos un ejemplo: En un loundry los dueños han decidido abrir un segundo local. El dueño deberá buscar en el flujo de efectivo de la segundo loundry por sí mismo, para ver si se puede agregar valor suficiente por sí solo. Veamos; si sólo los beneficios contables, podría indicar que la compañía será "más" rentable esto significaría que nos se demuestra hasta qué punto el nuevo proyecto contribuye por sí solo.
Pregunta # 2

...Caledonia Products Calculating Free Cash Flow and Project Valuation It’s been two months since you took a position as an assistant financial analyst at Caledonia Products. Although your boss has been pleased with your work, he is still a bit hesitant about unleashing you without supervision. Your next assignment involves both the calculation of the cash flows associated with a new investment under consideration and the evaluation of several mutually exclusive projects. Given your lack of tenure at Caledonia, you have been asked not only to provide a recommendation but also to respond to a number of questions aimed at judging your understanding of the capital-budgeting process. The memorandum you received outlining your assignment follows: To: The Assistant Financial Analyst From: Mr. V. Morrison, CEO, Caledonia Products Re: Cash Flow Analysis and Capital Rationing We are considering the introduction of a new product. Currently we are in the 34% tax bracket with a 15% discount rate. This project is expected to last five years and then, because this is somewhat of a fad project, it will be terminated.

...Sense Caledonia is thinking of launching new merchandise, the company must decide whether to lease or buy. Caledonia is in the 34 percent marginal tax bracket with a 15 percent call for a rate of return on cost of capital, the new project being a fad will only be a for five years. When deciding to lease, Caledonia must consider how reducing out of pocket cost could benefit the company. Though leasing would mean they do not fully own the product. When leasing, Caledonia must consider the rates that will be used in the cost of leasing. The company’s credit rating will determine if they will receive a good rate on their lease. Another factor is will the company have enough income to pay the lease as necessary. In order to be protected shareholders ponder on having current paycheck stubs furnish to verify that the cost. In most instances the merchandise expenses are paid in full and then the lease is up. The leasing company owns the merchandise until expenses are paid in full. The budget is an important component to take into account to decide how much product the company would be able to acquire. The company should be certain the products have face values and is able to provide adequate income. A back up plan should always be considered by a business, in case a payment is missed. The company has the option to own it, when buying a product. The best value offered in most cases is when you are buying a brand new product, and have the best value offered, and the best prices......

...Caledonia Products March 24, 2013 BUS 401 Principles of Finance Caledonia Products Caledonia products is a company in which wants to foresee if the company should be invested into and if it has potential to invest. As we focus on free cash flows other then accounting profits because there are flows in which the firm receives and can reinvest. By only examining cash flows which is, “the amount of cash available from operation after the firm pays for the investment it has made in operating working capital and fixed assets. This cash is available to distribute to the firm’s creditors and owners.”( Keown, A., Martin, J., & Petty, J. (2011). Foundations of finance (7th ed.). We are only interested in these cash flows on after tax basis only as these are the flows which are available to the shareholder. Second, it is only the incremental cash flows which interest the company by looking at the project from the point of the company as a whole; the incremental cash flows are the marginal benefits from the project and are the increased value to the firm of accepting the project. Depreciation is not a cash flow term; it does affect the level of the differential cash flows over the project’s life because of its effect on taxes. Depreciation which is an express item and the more depreciation incurred, the larger are expenses. The accounting profits become lower and in turn, so do taxes which are cash flow item. When evaluating the capital budgeting proposal, the sunk costs......

...1     Caledonia Products Integrative Problem Christina Smith, Patricia Bryant, Kelley Randall, Ashley Irizarry FIN 370 Jan. 27th, 2014 Tarak Patel 2     Caledonia Products Integrative Problem 1. Caledonia should focus on project free cash flows because it is able to measure the company’s cash flows minus its capital expenditures. This can help a company determine the cash it is able to generate and see what cash is available to use for projects and expansion, pay dividends, or more. Looking at the company’s accounting profits will show the company’s earnings, but the cash flows will show the company’s overall financial health. The biggest reason to look at free cash flows opposed to projects accounting profits is that it will give the company the most accurate and valuable information for undergoing a new project. 2. Incremental Cash Flows (Year 1-5) Year 1: (Revenue: $21,000,000) – (Cost per Unit: $12,600,000) - ( Fixed Costs: $200,000) (Depreciation: $1,580,000) – (Taxes: $2,250,800) + (Depreciation: $1,5800) = $5,949,200 Year 2: (36,000,000) – (21,600,000) – ($200,000) – (1,580,000) – (4,290,800) + (1,580,000) = $9,909,200 Year 3: (42,000,000) – (25,200,000) – (200,000) – (1,580,000) – (5,106,800) + (1,580,000) = $11,493,200 Year 4: (24,000,000) – (14,400,000) – (200,000) – (1,580,000) – (2,658,800) + (1,580,000) = $6,741,200 Year 5: (15,600,000) – (10,800,000) – (200,000) – (1,580,000) – (1,026,800) + (1,580,000) = $3,573,200 The cash flows......

Caledonia Project

...Caledonia Project Team A James Kochiel, Erik Nutt, Lynnell Smothers, Derek Wright January 21, 2014 John Dewey 1. Why should Caledonia focus on project free cash flows as opposed to the accounting profits earned by the project when analyzing whether to undertake the project? Caledonia should focus on cash flows, because free cash flows can be reinvested when received, unlike accounting profits which are shown when earned, and not at the time cash is received. The company should focus on incremental after-tax cash flows. This enables it to analyze the profits or losses after comparing cash flows with or without the project on an after tax basis. 2. What are the incremental cash flows for the project in years 1 through 5 and how do these cash flows differ from accounting profits or earnings? The incremental cash flows for the project for the five year period are net initial investment, net salvage value and net operating cash flow. Operating cash flow consists of the net revenue of expenses and liabilities for a particular time, salvage value is the after-tax cash flow received from the liquidation or ending projects no longer wanted by the company and initial investment outlay consists of cash flows from the sale of new and old equipment. The difference from profits and earnings is that they are not categorized as expenses but long spread depreciation ...

When the fourth and fifth year came around the company had a major decrease within both years. 3. What is the project’s initial outlay?

...Financial Management: Principles and Applications Week IV Team Assignment Kristina Bury, Steven Leatherbury, Traci Russell, Jim Scanlon Finance / 370 Derek Webster June 20, 2011 Describe the factors that Caledonia would have to consider if they were doing a lease vs. buy for the two projects. When choosing between leasing and buying of equipment, company’s need to consider all options and aspects. The company should consider whether or not the equipment will be a long-term piece or short-term. With the rapid and ever changing advances in technology, the company will need to consider if purchasing equipment that will become obsolete in a couple of years is worth the investment. There is also the price and costs to think of. Management will need to consider whether or not the company can afford, or will want to pay interest rates on equipment or buy the equipment out right. This may be a deciding factor for the company. Also, as previous mentioned the worth of the equipment will change over time, and most likely be worth only a fraction of what the initial purchase price was. Another important factor to remember and review is the mobility or portability of the equipment. In order for a company to not lose any money on its asset there will need to be some form of tracking. This would be especially true in a lease where the equipment is expected to be returned after a set amount of time. In the end, leasing equipment can be more......

...Caledonia Products Integrative Problem Part A. What is each project’s payback period? Payback period = Investment required / Net Annual Cash Inflow Project A: 100,000 / 32,000 = 3.125 years Project B: 5 years. There is no cash inflow until the fifth year when an inflow of $200,000 comes in to offset the investment. To determine payback period it is the following: Payback Period = Y + ( A / B ) where Y = The number of years before final payback year. A = Total remaining to be paid back at the start of the payback year, to bring cumulative cash flow to B = Total (net) paid back in the entire payback year For first case Y=3 (we see in year 4 it is paid back so 3 is year before final payback year) A=100000-(32000*3)= 4000 B= 32000 3+ (4000/32000) 3.125 2nd case Y= 4 because we see the investment is paid in full in year 5 so year before is 4 A= 100000 B=200000 4+(100000/200000) 4.5 Your solutions were slightly off. Part B. What is each project’s net present value?

...Caledonia Products Integrative Problems Team A March 22, 2012 FIN/370 Kimberly Corbin University of Phoenix Loop Campus Caledonia Products Integrative Problems 1. Why should Caledonia focus on project free cash flows as opposed to the accounting profits earned by the project when analyzing whether to undertake the project? a. Caledonia should focus on project free cash flow rather than accounting profits because free cash flow is what the company will receive that can be reinvested into the company. Thoroughly analyzing the free cash flow will help Caledonia determine the actual benefit and/or cost involved in the project. The company should focus primarily on the incremental cash flow because this holds a marginal benefit from the project. Depreciation is an expense meaning the greater the depreciation the greater the expense; therefore, if Caledonia looked at the project from the accounting profits, the profit will be much lower than that of the free cash flow. 2. What are the incremental cash flows for the project in years 1 through 5 and how do these cash flows differ from accounting profits or earnings? b. The incremental cash flows for the projects in years 1 through 5 show $4,460,000 increase from the first to the second year, which is roughly about 53%. Year two through year three showed a %23 increase however year three through five respectively decrease %28 and %43 which as was expected to occur. 3. What is the project’s......

...Caledonia Products K.C. BUS 401 Principles of Finance Prof. Andrew McIntyre March 19, 2012 Caledonia Products Businesses are started in many ways for many reasons. Many companies begin as very small businesses while others are inherited as major corporations. Most businesses have shareholders who invest in different business ventures in order to receive a profit. Whether the profit is in the form of dividends or something else, all shareholders will try to ensure to success of the company. No matter what type of investments the company receives, there are many decisions and risks that a company must consider. Caledonia should focus on free cash flows because the firm actually receives these cash flows and can also reinvest them. These cash flows are beneficial on an after tax basis. The company should be interested in incremental cash flows as a whole. The acceptance of the project results in increased value of the firm while the cash flows are the marginal benefit. Depreciation is an expense which affects cash flow indirectly. Cash flows are affected by depreciation throughout the life of a project through income taxes. The more depreciation is incurred, the larger the expense. Higher depreciation expenses can cause a lower taxable income which creates changes in cash outflow. Sunk costs are normally irrelevant especially when sunk costs are already occurred. Being that the company......

... Caledonia Products Integrative Problem Michelle M. Rayford, Peter Pontone, and Sibylle Letzelter FIN/370 June 18, 2012 Laura Haase Caledonia Products Integrative Problem Question 1 Caledonia should focus on project free cash flows as opposed to accounting profits earned because free cash lows show the value of the projects. Caledonia needs to isolate the project independent from regular company financials to understand how the project will contribute value to the business. Accounting profits earned will take into account the entire business and it will not isolate the project. A good example is dry cleaners that decide to open up a second location. The owner needs to look at the cash flow from the second store on its own to see if it will add enough value on its own. If you look at just the accounting profits, it might indicate that the company will be “more” profitable. However, that does not show how much the new project contributes on its own.

It is important that Caledonia Company should focus on the free cash flows instead of the accounting profits. With the free cash flows that the company receives they can reinvest. To accurately analyze the timing of the benefit or cost we can examine the cash flows. The only cash flows that the company should be interested in are the after-tax basis because these are the flows that are available to shareholders.
