For this discussion post its on income and cash flow, i have to read this case on distinguishing income and cash flow. Then prepare a statement of cash flows from the information available in this loan application and post it to the class. I need help with setting up writing this discussion post.
DISCUSSION 5.1 You are a loan officer for First Benevolent Bank. You have an uneasy feeling as you examine a loan application from Daring Corporation. The application included the following financial statements.
DARING CORPORATION Income Statement For the Year Ended December 31, 2011
Sales revenue $100,000 Cost of goods sold (50,000) Depreciation expense (5,000) Remaining expenses (25,000) Net income $20,000
DARING CORPORATION Balance Sheet December 31, 2011 Cash $5,000 Accounts receivable 25,000 Inventory 20,000 Depreciable assets 55,000 Accumulated depreciation (5,000) Total $100,000
Accounts payable $10,000 Interest payable 5,000 Note payable 45,000 Common stock 20,000 Retained earnings 20,000 Total $100,000
It is not Daring's profitability that worries you. The income statement submitted with the application shows net income of $20,000 in Daring's first year of operations. By referring to the balance sheet, you see that this net income represents a 20% rate of return on assets of $100,000. Your concern stems from the recollection that the note payable reported on Daring's balance sheet is a two-year loan you approved earlier in the year.
You also recall another promising new company that, just last year, defaulted on another of your bank's loans when it failed due to its inability to generate sufficient cash flows to meet its obligations. Before requesting additional information from Daring, you decide to test your memory of the intermediate accounting class you took in night school by attempting to prepare a statement of cash flows from the information available in the loan application.
