Leasehold Improvements would be increased, and Cash would be decreased by
$120,000. The annual amortization would be based on the remaining life of the lease:
($120,000 ÷ 4 years) = $30,000 per year. Note that amortization is over the remaining lease
term, not the physical life of the improvements.
8-62 Amounts are in millions of dollars.

By itself, depreciation expense does not provide cash. This point is illustrated by part 1,
which compares the amounts shown with zero income taxes. Note that the cash provided
by operations (and the ending cash balances) are exactly the same. No matter what
depreciation expense is allocated to the year (whether $6,739 million, $8,739 million, or
zero), the $29,537 million cash provided by operations and the ending cash will be
unaffected.
