Exercise 10-8  (30 minutes) 1. ROI computations: ROI = Margin × Turnover Net operating income Sales  ×  Sales Average operating assets Division A: \$600,000 \$12,000,000 ROI =   ×  \$12,000,000 \$3,000,000 = 5% × 4 = 20% Division B: \$560,000 \$14,000,000 ROI =   ×  \$14,000,000 \$7,000,000 = 4% × 2 = 8% Division C: \$800,000 \$25,000,000 ROI =   ×  \$25,000,000 \$5,000,000 = 3.2% × 5 = 16% 2.

Exercise 10-8  (continued) 3. a. and b. Division A Division B Division  C Return on investment (ROI). .......... 20%  8% 16% Therefore, if the division is  presented with an investment  opportunity yielding 15%, it  probably would. ........................... Reject Accept Reject Minimum required return for  computing residual income. ........ 14% 10% 16% Therefore, if the division is  presented with an investment  opportunity yielding 15%, it  probably would. ........................... Accept Accept Reject If performance is being measured by ROI, both Division A and Division  C probably would reject the 15% investment opportunity. These  divisions’ ROIs currently exceed 15%; accepting a new investment with a  15% rate of return would reduce their overall ROIs. Division B probably  would accept the 15% investment opportunity because accepting it  would increase the division’s overall rate of return. If performance is measured by residual income, both Division A and
