E4-3. Determining cash collections on account

The provision for bad debts and write-off for uncollectible credit sales are
non-cash expenses so they do not enter into the computation of cash
receipts. To compute cash receipts, we need only sum the cash collected
in May, as follows:
Collections of May credit sales (est.) 20% of \$200,000 =
Collections of April credit sales (est.) 70% of \$150,000 =
Collections of pre-April credit sales
Total cash receipts from accounts receivable in May

E4-4. Determining ending accounts receivable

This problem tests students understanding of the interrelationships between
various balance sheet and income statement accounts.
To solve for the ending accounts receivable (A/R) balance, one needs to
determine both sales on account (debit to A/R) and total purchases from an
analysis of accounts payable. Once these two amounts are determined, one
can conduct an analysis of the A/R T-account to deduce the ending A/R
balance.
Step 1: To determine sales on account, one must first determine cost of
goods sold as follows:

E4-5. Determining cash disbursements
To answer this question, one needs to first determine the accrual basis
expenses and then (1) subtract from this figure expenses not paid in cash;
and (2) add amounts paid out in cash not recorded as accrual expenses.
Total accrual basis expenses:
Cost of goods sold = 70% of sales
= 70% \$700,000
Fixed portion
Variable portion
= 15% of sales
= 15% \$700,000
Total accrual basis expenses
Subtract: Noncash expenses
Depreciation expense
Charge for uncollectible accounts (1% x \$700,000)
Add: Increase in inventory which represents a net
noncash deduction in determining cost of goods sold
(see below)

Cost of Goods Sold

Beginning Inventory
+ Purchases

- Ending Inventory increase by \$10,000

= Cost of Goods Sold

If inventory increases by \$10,000, this means that the non-cash subtraction

from cost of goods sold was bigger than the non-cash addition. Therefore, we
4-3

need to add this inventory increase to the accrual basis expenses to get
cash basis expenses.
E4-6. Determining cash collections on account
Cash collected from customers can be determined by finding the change in
accounts receivable.

Notice that no accounts were written off during the year so there was no
credit to accounts receivable for the \$1,000 uncollectible accounts.
E4-7. Determining cash received from customers
Collections from customers equal sales revenue minus the increase in
accounts receivable, or \$70,000 (\$75,000 - \$5,000).

Requirement 2:
Net income is \$100,000, yet cash used by operating activities is (\$150,000).
There are several reasons for the difference. Accounts receivable increased
by \$110,000 (i.e., not all of the sales reported in the 2001 income statement
were collected in cash in 2001). Inventories decreased by \$50,000 (i.e., part
of the cost of goods sold appearing in the 2001 income statement consists of
inventory that was paid for in an earlier year (i.e., 2000). Accounts payable
decreased by \$150,000 (i.e., the firm paid cash for all of its 2001 purchases
of merchandise from suppliers, as well as \$150,000 for purchases made in
2000). Other current liabilities decreased by \$70,000 (i.e., the firm paid cash
for the various operating expenses it incurred in 2001 as well as \$70,000 of
operating expenses that were incurred, but not paid in cash in 2000). The
changes in the prepaid expenses and the salaries payable accounts, along
with the depreciation expense, explain the remaining difference between the
firms net income and its cash flow from operating activities.
Note: This problem demonstrates that a firm can be profitable under the
accrual basis even though it does not generate positive cash flow from
operating activities.

Requirement 2:
Net income (loss) is (\$200,000), yet cash provided by operating activities is
a positive \$100,000. There are several reasons for the difference. Accounts
receivable decreased by \$140,000 (i.e., the firm collected all of 2001s sales
in cash as well as some of the sales made in 2000, but not collected in
2000). Inventories increased by \$25,000 (i.e., the acquisition of merchandise
inventory in 2001 exceeded the amount reported in the income statement for
cost of goods sold). Accounts payable increased by \$120,000 (i.e., the firm
did not pay for all of the merchandise purchases made from suppliers during
2001, thus the amount reported in the income statement for cost of goods
sold is an overstatement of cash payments for purchases in 2001). Interest
payable increased by \$50,000 (i.e., the amount of interest paid in cash in
2001 is less than the amount of interest expense reported in the firms 2001
income statement). The changes in the other current assets and accrued
payables accounts, along with the depreciation expense explain the
remaining difference between the firms net income and its cash flow from
operating activities.
Note: This problem demonstrates that a firm can be unprofitable under the
accrual basis even though it generates positive cash flow from operating
activities.

goods sold to its cash flow counterpart, i.e., cash paid to suppliers. The
following table illustrates that adjusting for change in inventory converts cost
of goods sold to cost of purchases, and further adjusting for change in
accounts payable converts the cost of purchases to cash paid to suppliers.

P4-2. Explaining differences between cash flow from operations and accrual
net income
Requirement 1:
Net income reflects (1) accrual accounting, (2) estimates of certain
expenses, (3) and management discretion in certain items.
Net income is not necessarily correlated to cash flows from operations
because of accrual accounting. The recording of revenues when earned, and
not received in the form of cash, and the recording of expenses in one period,
but actually paid in another, are examples of how accrual accounting can
result in net income figures that have no correlation to cash flows from
operations. Charges for noncash items (depreciation expense and
amortization of goodwill) will affect net income but have no effect on cash flows
from operations.
Estimates for items such as bad debts expense, depreciation expense and
the amortization of intangible assets are largely up to management to
determine. These items all lower net income but have no effect on cash flows
from operations. Examples include: restructuring of debt, gains and losses on
the sale of assets, discontinued operations, extraordinary items, and
changes in accounting principles. All of these items affect net income, but not
cash flows from operations.
Requirement 2:
The cash flow from operations (CFO) focuses on the liquidity aspect of
operations and not on measuring the profitability. If used as a measure of
performance, the CFO is less subject to distortion than the net income figure.
Analysts use the CFO as a check on the quality of earnings. The CFO then
is acting as a check on the reported net earnings figure but not as a
substitute for net earnings. Firms with high net earnings and low CFO may be
using income recognition techniques that are suspect. The ability for a firm to
4-9

generate CFO on a consistent basis is an indication of the financial health of

the firm. For most firms, CFO is the lifeblood of the firm. Analysts search for
trends in CFO to indicate future cash conditions and the potential for cash
flow troubles.
P4-3. Common-size financial statements
Company C has a high amount of its assets in cash and marketable
securities. It has no accounts receivable and the smallest proportion of
property, plant and equipment (PP&E). In addition, it is the only organization
with a deficit in retained earnings. The lack of inventory, accounts receivable
and small amount of PP&E rules out Alcoa as a possibility. Moreover, one
would expect Delta or Wendy's to have significantly more fixed assets, which
suggests that Company C is Amazon.Com. This can be confirmed when we
realize that Amazon.Com is a relatively new company that has yet to post
positive earnings, resulting in a retained earnings deficit.
Companies A, B and D all have accounts receivable; however, Company As
balance is considerably higher than Companies Bs or Ds receivable
balance. Company As accounts receivable balances are more in line with a
manufacturing firm that would be selling its product on credit. Whereas
Companies B and D appear to sell their products primarily for cash or by
accepting third party credit cards (Visa, Mastercharge). This denotes that
Alcoa is Company A. In addition, Company As higher inventory levels would
be required to meet manufacturing operations and seems to further suggest
that this is Alcoa.
Companies B and D both have balances consistent with organizations that
have high cash or third party credit card sales. Both companies have fairly
large PP&E balances, which appear to be consistent with the capital
requirements of major airlines or a chain of fast-food restaurants. However,
Company B has more than double the long-term liabilities of Company D. This
would be consistent with an airline that acquires its flight equipment through
the use of capital leases (the long-term liabilities appear to be capital lease
obligations), thus suggesting that Company B is Delta Air Lines and
Company D is Wendy's. This is further confirmed when you look at inventory
levels, Company B at zero and Company D at two percent. One would expect
a fast food restaurant business, Wendy'sCompany D, to maintain inventory,
but at minimal levels, while a service organization, DeltaCompany B, would
require no investment in inventory.

4-10

P4-4. Common-size financial statements

A quick review of the financials tells us that Companies A and B have a heavy
investment in current assets with inventory making up a significant portion of
Company As position. Company A and Company C each has a significant
investment in property, plant & equipment (PP&E). Company C appears to be
highly leveraged when compared to the other three companies. Companies B
and D are both reporting significant goodwill and intangibles and both have
significantly higher retained earnings.
Goodwill arises when one company acquires another and pays more than the
fair market value of the net assets acquired. Likewise, intangible assets will
increase by the direct purchase of intangibles. Gannett has a record of
acquiring and disposing of newspapers and television companies.
Consequently, one can assume that Gannett would have goodwill on its
balance sheet. Similarly, Merck is a highly successful pharmaceutical
company that also acquires organizations and purchases intangibles such as
patents and customer relationships, so it appears likely that Merck will report
intangible assets on its balance sheet. As a result, we can conclude that
Gannett and Merck are either Company B or D. Looking closer at Company B,
we see slightly higher accounts receivable than Company D which may be
more indicative of a manufacturing and marketing operation whose customer
base would include hospitals, drug retailers (pharmacies) and other trade
customers who might need extended credit terms versus subscription
services, newspaper and television advertisers. Further examination
indicates that Company B has significantly higher inventory requirements than
Company D. Since Merck is manufacturer and distributor of health related
products, and as such, would require higher inventory levels, one can
conclude that Company B is Merck and Company D is Gannett. One may
argue that Gannett will need inventory to supports its publishing business;
however, those requirements would be proportionally lower in total when
would be non-existent.
As stated above, Companies A and C both have significant PP&E and that
Company C is highly leveraged when compared to Company A. Utility
companies are regulated and as such, have a fairly conventional earnings
stream; as a result, utility companies tend to use long-term debt to finance
their PP&E investments. It appears that Company C is Wisconsin Electric
Power Company, while Company A is Target. This is further confirmed when
inventory levels are examined. Company As (Target) inventory levels are
seven times higher than Company D (Wisconsin Electric Power). One can
conclude that the higher inventory levels are necessary to support Company
As (Target) retail sales.

exchange for asset purchases. In the actual cash flow statement, an
exchange of notes payable for fixed assets may be included in the notes as a
significant noncash transaction. If the notes payable were issued in
exchange for cash, then it would be shown as a source of cash in the
financing activities section of the cash flow statement.

Requirement 1:
Cash collected during 2002 can be shown by a T-account analysis:

\$78,000 = \$84,000 + \$1,200,000 - \$5,000 X

X = \$1,201,000 cash collections on account
Requirement 2:
Cash disbursed for purchases of merchandise can be derived by using
two T-accounts, inventory and accounts payable.
Beginning inventory

Ending inventory

Inventory

determine cash disbursed for merchandise purchases.

Requirement 3:
Explanation for difference between accrual and cash flow from operations:
Net income is \$1,085, while cash provided by operating activities is much
larger \$9,289. There are several causes of the difference. First, \$7,380 of
depreciation expense reduced income, but it did not reduce cash flow, so it is
added back to net income to obtain cash from operations. Accounts
receivable decreased during the year (i.e., all 2001 sales were collected in
cash in 2001 as well as some sales made in 2000, but not collected in 2000),
accounts payable increased in 2001 (i.e., cash paid to suppliers in 2001 was
less than the cost of merchandise purchased and sold in 2001). These three
items are more than enough to offset the increase in the inventory account of
\$7,400 (i.e., more inventory was acquired in 2001 than was sold to customers).

They may be solved for as follows (all amounts in millions).

a) Total assets: Since total liabilities and stockholders' equity is given
(\$22,357), total assets is just this number, \$22,357.
b) Other current assets: Total current assets is given as \$15,889 as all
are of its components except other current assets. The sum of the given
components is \$15,387 (cash and short-term investments is \$13,927 and
accounts receivable (net) is \$1,460). Subtracting the sum of these
components from total current assets leaves \$502 for other current
assets .
Total current assets = Cash and short-term investments + Accounts receivable +
Other Current Assets
\$15,889 = \$13,927 + \$1,460 + X
X = \$502 = Other current assets

c) Equity investments: To obtain equity investments, subtract total current

assets of \$15,889, property, plant, and equipment of \$1,505 and other
assets of \$260 from total assets of \$22,357. This yields \$4,703 for other
equity investments.
d) Unearned revenue: Total current liabilities is given as \$5,730 as is all of
its components except unearned revenue. The sum of the given
components is \$2,842 (accounts payable is \$759, accrued compensation
is \$359, income tax payable is \$915, and other current liabilities are \$809).
Subtracting the sum of these components from total current liabilities
leaves \$2,888 for unearned revenues.
Total current liabilities = Accounts payable + Accrued compensation + Income taxes payable +
Unearned revenue + Other current liabilities
\$5,730 = \$759 + \$359 + \$915 + X + \$809
X = \$2,888 = Unearned revenue

4-21

e) Total stockholder's equity: Since Microsoft has no long-term debt, total

stockholders' equity is just total liabilities and stockholders' equity of
\$22,357 minus total current liabilities of \$5,730. Doing the subtraction
yields \$16,627 for total stockholders' equity.
f) Common stock and paid-in-capital: It can be derived by subtracting
retained earnings of \$7,622 and preferred stock of \$980 from total
stockholders' equity of \$16,627. Doing so yields \$8,025 for common stock
and paid-in-capital.
Requirement 2:
The firm appears to be in quite good financial health. Here are a couple of
reasons why.
a) The firm's current assets of \$15,889 are 2.77 times its current liabilities of
\$5,730 (i.e., the firm's current ratio is about 2.77). Thus, the firm is unlikely
to face any type of liquidity crisis.
b) Related to (a), the firm's cash and short-term investments of \$13,927 far
exceed its total current liabilities of \$5,730. This is further evidence that
the firm has very good short-term liquidity.
Requirement 3:
In general, the changes in Microsoft's balance sheet from Year 1 to Year 2
are favorable. Several notable changes include (amounts in millions):
a) Cash and short-term investments increased by about 55%.
(\$13,927/\$ 8,966)
b) Current assets increased by about 53%
(\$15,889/\$10,373)
c) Microsoft appears to have had a substantial increase in the equity
investment account as evidenced by an increase of \$2,357 million.
d) Retained earnings increased by about \$2,334 million. This suggests that
the firm was quite profitable in Year 2 (the income statement could be
examined to verify this).
e) Microsoft had no long-term debt in Year 1 or Year 2. One might suspect
that Microsoft's operations generate more than enough cash flow for the
firm (the cash flow statement could be examined to verify this).

4-22

Requirement 4:
Perhaps, the best answer to this question is to say that Microsoft's solid
balance sheets provide no obvious reason not to invest in the firm. However,
it would be unwise to base an investment recommendation solely on balance
sheet information. Moreover, other information about Microsoft should be
gathered and analyzed (see the next question).
Requirement 5:
At a minimum the following information should be obtained:
a) The firm's income statements for the past 4-5 years. These data would be
used to assess Microsoft's recent profitability and potential future
profitability.
b) The firm's cash flow statements for the past 4-5 years. These data would
be used to assess Microsoft's recent cash-flow generating ability and what
the cash flows were used for, as well as to help project the firm's potential
future cash flow generating ability.
c) Other information that the analyst might seek to obtain includes:
projections of future earnings and/or sales made by Microsoft
management,
projections about future demand for Microsoft's products from the firm or
from industry trade publication or other independent sources.
information about new products that Microsoft has in development and
the projected introduction dates for these products.
Other student responses are possible.

a)

Total liabilities + Shareholders equity = Total assets (given) = \$11,973

b)

Land: \$390

The following amounts, which are given in the problem, are needed to derive
the balance in the land account: Total assets of \$11,973, total current assets
of \$6,716, and the balances of all long-term asset accounts except land
(buildings and leasehold improvements \$2,779, machinery and equipment
\$2,792, accumulated depreciation (\$2,616), and long-term receivables and
other Assets \$1,912). Thus, the balance in the land account is:
Total assets = Current assets + Land + Buildings and leasehold improvements + Machinery and
equipment - Accumulated depreciation + Long-term receivables and other assets

\$11,973 = \$6,716 + land + \$2,779 + \$2,792 - \$2,616 + \$1,912.

Land = \$390.
c) Long-term debt: \$188
The following information (\$ in millions) in the problem can be used to derive
the long-term debt: Total liabilities and shareholders equity (i.e., total assets)
of \$11,973, total current liabilities of \$4,063, total shareholders equity of
\$7,269, other liabilities of \$210, and deferred taxes payable of \$243.
Long-term debt = Total liabilities and shareholders equity - Total shareholders equity Other liabilities - Deferred taxes payable - Total current liabilities

Long-term debt = \$11,973 - \$7,269 - \$210 - \$243 - \$4,063.

Long-term debt = \$188.

4-25

d)

Notes payable and short-term borrowings: \$1,201.

The given information includes total current liabilities as well as all of its
underlying components except for notes payable and short-term borrowings.
To solve for notes payable and short-term borrowings simply subtract all of
the given current liability components from total current liabilities. Specifically:
Notes payable and short-term borrowings = Total current liabilities - Accounts payable - Employee
compensation and benefits payable - Taxes payable - Deferred revenues Other accrued liabilities

Notes payable and short-term borrowings =

\$4,063 - \$686 - \$837 - \$381 - \$375 - \$583.
Notes payable and short-term borrowings = \$1,201.
e) Retained Earnings: \$6,259
The following information given in the case can be used to derive the retained
earnings balance: Total shareholders equity of \$7,269 and common stock
and capital in excess of \$1 par value of \$1,010. The balance in the retained
earnings account is just the difference between these two figures:
Retained earnings = \$7,269 - \$1,010
Retained earnings = \$6,259.
f)

Accounts and notes receivable: \$2,976

The given information includes total current assets as well as all of its underlying components except for accounts and notes receivable. To solve for
accounts and notes receivable, simply subtract all of the given current asset
components from total current assets. Specifically:
Accounts and notes receivable = Total current assets - Cash and cash equivalents - Short-term
investments - Finished goods - Purchased parts and fabricated assemblies Other current assets

A ccounts and notes receivable = \$6,716 - \$625 - \$495 - \$1,100 - \$1,173 - \$347.
Accounts and notes receivable = \$2,976.

4-26

Requirement 2:
One way to answer this question is to calculate the ratio of total Stockholders
equity to total assets. Specifically:
\$7,269/\$11,973 = 60.7%.
This suggests that Hewlett-Packard finances itself by relying slightly more on
investment by shareholders rather than creditors.
Of note is that what financing that is provided by creditors is primarily shortterm. Moreover, current liabilities are \$4,063, while long-term liabilities are
only \$641.
Requirement 3:
Hewlett-Packards largest current asset is accounts and notes receivable of
\$2,976.
Requirement 4:
Hewlett-Packards largest current liability is notes and short-term borrowings
of \$1,201.
Requirement 5:
Current ratio = Current assets/Current liabilities.
= \$6,716/\$4,063
= 1.65.
This means that Hewlett-Packard has \$1.65 of current assets for each \$1.00
of current liabilities. A simple rule of thumb for the current ratio is that it should
be greater than one. Thus, Hewlett-Packard appears to have adequate shortterm liquidity.
A better way to gauge the adequacy of a firms current ratio is to compare it to
prior years values for the firm, as well as with the values for other firms in the
industry.
Requirement 6:
Other current assets may consist of items such as prepaid expenses like

C4-2. Snap-on-Tools Corp. (CW): Determining missing amounts on cash flow
statement
Required:
Snap-on-Tools 19X2 cash flow statement appears below. The unknowns are:
net cash provided by operating activities, net cash used in investing
activities, net cash provided by (used in) financing activities, increase in
cash and cash equivalents, and cash and cash equivalents at end of year.
These amounts may be solved for as follows (all in thousands).
a)

Cash provided by operating activities = Net earnings + Depreciation + Amortization - Decrease in

deferred income taxes - Gain on sale of assets - Increase in receivables + Decrease in inventories Increase in prepaid expenses - Decrease in accounts payable + Increase in accruals, deposits, and
Other Liabilities.

Cash provided by operating activities (\$ in 000) = \$65,975 + \$25,484 +

\$3,973 - \$ 6,005 - \$250 - \$5,458 + \$5,928 - \$4,829 - \$8,202 + \$23,330
Cash provided by operating activities = \$99,946.

4-37

b)

Net cash used in investing activities:

Cash used by investing activities = Capital expenditures + Acquisition of Sun Electric, net of cash
acquired + Increase in other noncurrent assets - Disposal of property and equipment.

Cash used by investing activities = \$21,081 + \$110,719 + \$3,609 - \$3,379.

Cash used by investing activities = \$132,030.
c)

Net cash provided by (used in) financing activities:

Cash provided by financing activities = Increase in notes payable - Payment of long -term debt +
Increase in long-term debt + Proceeds from stock option plans - Cash dividends paid.

Cash provided by financing activities = \$52,503 - \$8,332 + \$78,650 + \$4,940

- \$45,718
Cash provided by financing activities = \$82,043.
d)

Increase in cash and cash equivalents:

Increase in cash and cash equivalents = Cash provided by operating activities - Cash used by
investing activities + Cash provided by financing activities - Effect of exchange rate changes.

Increase in cash and cash equivalents = \$99,946 - \$132,030+\$82,043 \$1,916.

Increase in cash and cash equivalents = \$48,043.
e)

Cash and cash equivalents at end of year:

Cash and cash equivalents at end of year = Cash and cash equivalents at beginning of
year + Increase in cash and cash equivalents.

Cash and cash equivalents at end of year = \$10,930 + \$48,043

Cash and cash equivalents at end of year = \$58,973.

C4-5. Kellogg Company (CW): Determining missing amounts on cash flow
statement and explaining causes for change in cash
Requirement 1:
Kelloggs Year 1 cash flow statement appears below.
The unknowns are: additions to properties, cash and temporary investments
at end of year, cash dividends, cash used by financing activities, and net
earnings.

4-45

These amounts may be solved for as follows (\$ in millions).

Cash used by investing activities of (\$319.9) is given as are its components
(except additions to properties). Property disposals generated \$25.2 while
other acquisitions used \$11.6 of cash. Working backwards from the total
investing outflow of \$319.9 yields a figure of \$333.5 for additions to properties.
Specifically:
Total investing outflows = Additions to properties - Property disposals + Other acquisitions.

\$319.9 = X - \$25.2 + \$11.6

X = \$333.5 = Additions to properties.
b) Cash and temporary investments at end of year:
Cash and temporary investments at the beginning of the year is given as
\$100.5, and so is the increase in cash and temporary investments for the
year of \$77.5. Cash and temporary investments at end of year is just the sum
of the two, or \$178.0.
c) Cash used by financing activities:
The following given information is used to solve for this unknown:
Cash provided by operations is \$934.4,
Cash used by investing activities is (\$319.9).
Effect of exchange rate changes on cash \$0.7, and
Increase in cash and temporary investments is \$77.5.
To find cash used by financing activities:
Increase in cash = Cash provided by operations - Cash used by investing activities - Cash used by
financing activities + the Effect of exchange rate change on cash.

\$77.5 = \$934.4 - \$319.9 - X + \$0.7

X = \$537.7 = Cash used by financing activities.

4-46

d) Cash dividends:
Cash used by financing activities of (\$537.7) is obtained from (c). Its
components (except cash dividends) are all given in the case: Issuance of
common stock \$17.7, purchase of treasury stock \$83.6, borrowings of notes
payable \$182.1, issuance of long-term debt \$4.3, other financing activities
\$1.1, reduction of long-term debt \$126.0, and reduction of notes payable
\$274.0. Cash dividends may be derived as follows:
Cash used by financing activities = Issuance of common stock - Purchase of treasury stock +
Borrowings of notes payable + Issuance of long-term debt + Other financing activities - Reduction of
long-term debt - Reduction of notes payable - Cash dividends.

-\$537.7 = \$17.7 - \$83.6 + \$182.1 + \$ 4.3 + \$1.1 - \$126.0 - \$274.0 - X

= \$259.3 = Cash Dividends.
e) Net earnings:
Net earnings may be derived by taking cash provided by operations of \$934.4
and working backwards through the adjustments to net income that are
required to arrive at cash provided by operations.
The necessary adjustments (are given as):
Other noncash expenses \$16.8, decrease in accounts receivable \$10.2,
depreciation \$222.8, increase in prepaid expenses \$22.9, decrease in
deferred income taxes \$5.4, increase in accounts payable \$42.7, increase in
inventories \$41.4, and increase in accrued liabilities \$105.6.
Net earnings may be derived as follows:
Cash provided by operations = Net earnings + Other noncash expenses + Decrease in accounts
receivable + Depreciation - Increase in prepaid expenses - Decrease in deferred income taxes +
Increase in accounts payable - Increase in inventories + Increase in accrued liabilities.

\$934.4 = X + \$16.8 + \$10.2 + \$222.8 - \$22.9 - \$5.4 + \$42.7 - \$41.4 + \$105.6.

X = net earnings = \$606.0.
Having derived the unknowns, all that remains is assembling the cash flow
statement in good form. The correct cash flow statement appears on the next
page.
Requirement 2:
Kelloggs cash provided by operations of \$934.4 was more than enough to
cover the firms investing outflows of \$319.9.

4-47

Requirement 3:
This is a trick question. Depreciation is not a source of cash (i.e., reporting
more depreciation does not increase cash flow). Depreciation is a noncash
expense which needs to be added back to net income to derive Cash
Provided by Operations when a firm uses the indirect method to report
operating cash flows in its cash statement.
Requirement 4:
There are two primary reasons for the difference. They are that Kelloggs
financing activities (e.g., cash dividends, reduction of notes payable, etc.)
used \$537.7 million of cash and that the firms investing activities (e.g.,
additions to properties) used \$319.9 million of cash. Together these outflows
total \$857.6 which, when subtracted from the \$934.4 cash inflow from
operations, leaves an increase in cash of about \$77.5.
