Unformatted text preview: a. Econ 3A - Financial Accounting - W'O'? Exam #1 - 100 points (show all your work; use good form) ANSWER KEY PROBLEM 1 (30 points) As of the end of its most recent fiscal year 2006, Gap, Inc. reported $5,425 million of total stockholders’ equity and its debt to total assets ratio was .38499. Compute the amount that Gap reported for total liabilities as of fiscal year-end 2006. Assets = Liabilities + Equity Assets = .38499*Assets + $5,425 .61501*Assets = $5,425 Assets = $8,821 Assets = Liabilities + Equity Assets — Equity = Liabilities $8,821 — $5,425 = $3,396 Gap, lnc.’s free cash flow for fiscal 2006 was $951 million; its capital expenditures were $600 million, dividends paid were $179 million, and purchases of short-term investments were $123 million. How much cash was provided by operations during 2006? Free cash flow = CFFO — Cap exp — Dividends $951 = CFFO — $600 — $179 $1,730 = CFFO Note: purchases of short-term investments are irrelevant. Google, Inc. first sold stock to the public in 2004. As of year-end 2005, Google. reported total assets of just over $10 billion, of which more than $8 billion was held in cash and marketable securities. Give several reasons why Google’s 2005 balance sheet so lopsidedly consisted of highly liquid assets.

Your high school princip__ recommended that you take a college accounting course for the princip__ purpose of learning about generally accepted accounting princip___s, including proper accounting for debt princip__, and he implored you that for every assignment and exam in that course, you maintain your princip__s and not engage in academic dishonesty. AL AL LE AL LE Which one of the four basic assumptions justifies stating assets at cost rather than liquidation values? Explain. Going concern. The going concern assumption states that the business will remain in operation for the foreseeable future and thus recover the cost of its assets. If a business were not expected to be a going concern, statements readers would be more interested in knowing what the assets would bring on the auction block. Explain why the following statement is true or false: "Debits are good; credits are bad." Debits and credits are not qualitative in nature but simply locational indicators in the T-accounts: debits on the left, credits on the right.
