SECTION B : FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT QUESTIONS 1. 2. Differentiate between the profit maximization and the wealth maximization objectives of financial management. ABC Limited has a present annual Sales turnover of Rs. 40,00,000. The unit sale price is Rs. 20. The variable cost are Rs.12 per unit and fixed costs amount to Rs.5,00,000 per annum. The present credit period of one month is proposed to be extended to either 2 or 3 months whichever will be more profitable. The following additional information is available – On the basis of Credit Period of 1 month Increase in sales by % of Bad debts to sales − 1 2 months 10% 2 3 months 30% 5

Fixed cost will increase by Rs. 75,000 when sales will increase by 30%. The company requires a pre-tax return on investment at 20%. Evaluate the profitability of the proposals and recommended best credit period for the company. 3. XYZ is interested in assessing the cash flows associated with the replacement of an old machine by a new machine. The old machine bought a few years ago has a book value of Rs. 90,000 and it can be sold for Rs. 90,000. It has a remaining life of five years after which its salvage value is expected to be nil. It is being depreciated annually at the rate of 20 per cent (written down value method.) The new machine costs Rs. 4,00,000. It is expected to fetch Rs. 2,50,000 after five years when it will no longer be required. It will be depreciated annually at the rate of 33 1/3 per cent (written down value method.) The new machine is expected to bring a saving of Rs. 1,00,000 per annum in manufacturing costs. Investment in working capital would remain unaffected. The tax rate applicable to the firm is 50 per cent. Find out the relevant cash flow for this replacement decision. (Tax on capital gain/loss to be ignored) 4. Explain the Modigliani –Miller theory on the effect of gearing on the cost of capital to, and value of, the firm, in the absence of taxation. Explain how the theory is adjusted to take into account the effects of taxation. What are the principal weaknesses of this theory? Companies U and L are identical in every respect except that the former does not use debt in its capital structure, while the latter employs Rs. 6 lakh of 15 per cent debt. Assuming that, (a) all the M.M. assumptions are met , (b) the corporate tax rate is 35 per cent, (c) the EBIT is Rs. 2,00,000 and (d) the equity capitalization of the unlevered company is 20 per cent. What will be the value of the firms. U and L? Also, determine the weighted average cost of capital for both the firms. Three companies A, B and C are in the same type of business and hence have similar operating risks. However, the capital structure of each of them is different and the following are the details: A Equity Share Capital [Face value Rs. 10 per share] Market value per share Dividend per share Debentures 15 2.70 − 20 4 1,00,000 12 2.88 2,50,000 Rs. 4,00,000 B Rs. 2,50,000 C Rs. 5,00,000
