Part 2 : 09/06/13 00:22:02

Question 1 - CMA 1295 P2 Q4 - Basic Financial Statement Analysis A. This is the ending cash balance. B. This question is made simple by the fact that the beginning and ending cash balances are given. Since the beginning cash was $106,000 and the ending balance was $284,000, we know that the cash increased by $178,000 during the year. All transactions that involved cash will be classified as either operating, investing or financing activities, so this question is actually just asking what the change in the cash balance was during the year, which is the ending cash balance minus the beginning cash balance. The correct answer cannot be calculated using the other amounts given, because not all of the transactions that affected cash have been given. The amounts given net to a cash outflow of $760,000. Since that does not reconcile to the amount of change in the cash balance (a net cash inflow of $178,000), we know that not all the transctions that affected cash are given. C. Net income must be adjusted for noncash items in order to determine the net change in the cash position for the period. D. This is the decrease in accounts receivable (+$15,000) plus the proceeds from the truck sale (+$5,000) minus the interest paid to bondholders ($780,000) plus the increase in the cash balance (+$178,000). This is incorrect because: 1. The question asks for the total of cash provided/used by operating activities plus cash provided/used by investing activities plus cash provided/used by financing activities. All transactions that involved cash will be classified as either operating, investing or financing activities, so this question is actually just asking what the change in the cash balance was during the year. In the calculation above, the amount of change in the cash balance (ending cash balance of $284,000 beginning cash balance of $106,000) is included as one component of the change in the cash balance, which makes no sense. The beginning and ending cash balances can be used only to calculate the net cash used or provided during the period. The amount of change in the cash balance is the number that any statement of cash flows must reconcile to. 2. The correct answer cannot be calculated using the amounts given, because not all of the transactions that affected cash have been given. The amounts given net to a cash outflow of $760,000. Since that does not reconcile to the amount of change in the cash balance (a net cash inflow of $178,000), we know that not all the transctions that affected cash are given.

Question 2 - CMA 1295 P2 Q5 - Basic Financial Statement Analysis A. The balance sheet provides information about a firm's economic resources and obligations. B. The statement of cash flows provides information about the sources and uses of cash. This statement, when used with other financial statements will assist users in evaluating a firm's liquidity, solvency and financial flexibility. This choice is not the best definition of the uses of the statement of cash flows, but it is a better answer than the other choices. C. The income statement helps users determine a firm's components of income from operations. D. The notes to the financial statements will provide information as to whether or not insiders have sold or purchased the firm's stock.

However, interest on debt is classified as a cash flow from operating activities, not as a cash flow from financing activities. And although it is correct to classify dividends paid to shareholders as a financing activity, that is not the only financing activity among those given. B. This answer results from classifying interest paid on debt as the only cash flow from financing activities. However, interest on debt is classified as a cash flow from operating activities, not as a cash flow from financing activities. C. Dividends paid ($200,000) and repurchase of the company's stock as treasury stock ($400,000) are transactions that should be classified as cash flows from financing activities on the company's cash flow statement. Interest on debt is classified as a cash flow from operating activities, not financing activities. D.

Thus a decrease in accounts payable during the year should be classified as an operating activity on the statement of cash flows. B.
