Earnings persistence reflects the extent to which a particular dollar of earnings can be expected
to continue in the future. A user would expect the income from continuing operations of
$1,254,500 to continue in the future, but interpret the income and gain from the discontinued
division to reflect a onetime increase in earnings that is not expected to be realized in the future. b.

Income from continuing operations (before taxes)
Income tax expense
1,270,750 Income from continuing operations = Income excluding clerical division + Activities of clerical division
$1,955,000 = $1,930,000 + $25,000
b $684,250 = $1,955,000 35% A user would expect the entire amount of net income to persist in the future. No items are
separated out as onetime, unusual, and/or infrequent.
c. Rob Blandig faces a number of tradeoffs as he decides whether to complete the sale in 2012 or 2013.
First, income is already positive and strong in 2012. The gain from the sale increases net income by only
$85,150, only 6.7%,. If Carmich Industries anticipates a weaker 2013, it may be more beneficial to the
income statement to wait until 2013 in order to offset poorer performance. Also, by selling in 2012,
recurring income from operations isn’t as large as it could be. Users would interpret the financial
statements as $1,254,500 persisting into the future versus $1,270,750 if the division isn’t sold until 2013.
Also, Rob and other top management receive a 20% bonus on income from continuing operations. This
means that top management earns an additional 20% on the income from the division if it is not sold in
2012. On the other hand, Carmich Industries may face debt convenants that need to be covered by a
larger amount of income. Also, Rob may be able to use the cash from the sale to invest in alternative
projects that immediately earn a higher return than produced by the chemical division and increase income
and his bonus even higher next year. E13–9

are those charges that make the revenue possible. Operating income is the profitability associated
