Part D: (Total Marks: 11)


In this part of the assignment you are required to forecast operating income in next four
years based on the expected growth rates (mentioned in steps below) of revenues and
expenses.
Go to the worksheet titled Forecasting and perform the following tasks:

1. The growth of net revenue is based on average total industry growth rate of last four 1
years. Select cell F3 and in this cell enter the formula to compute the average
industry growth rate for last four years (from 2013 to 2016). Change the
background fill of the cell to light orange as of the surrounding cells. Express your
answer in percentage terms.

Suggestion: You may need to refer to cells G5 to G8 from the worksheet Industry
Outlook in your formula.

Full credit can only be obtained if referenced formulae are used in all cells.

2. Net revenue is expected to increase by the last four year industry average growth 1
rate for each of the successive years (from 2017- 2020). The percentage by which
revenue is expected to increase in next four years is calculated in step 1 above. Select
cell D16 and enter the formula to compute the forecasted net revenue for 2017.

Example: If the revenue for 2016 is 20,000 and last four year average growth rate of
industry comes out to be 5%. The forecasted net revenue for 2017 should be 21,000
i.e. 20,000 *(1+5%).

Note: You have computed last four year average growth rate of industry in step 1
above. You should use the output of step 1 in the calculation required in this step.

Full credit can only be obtained if referenced formulae are used in all cells.

3. Repeat step 2 above to forecast the net revenue for years 2018-2020. 1

It is important to note that each years forecast is based on previous years net
revenue.

Full credit can only be obtained if referenced formulae are used in all cells.

4. The cost of sales are expected to increase by 3% in each of the years. Select cell D17 1
and enter the formula to compute the forecasted cost of sales for 2017.

Example: If the cost of sales for 2016 is 9,000. The forecasted net revenue for 2017
should be 9,270 i.e. 9,000 *(1+3%).

Full credit can only be obtained if referenced formulae are used in all cells.

5. Repeat step 4 above to forecast the cost of sales for years 2018-2020. 2
Page 7 of 8

It is important to note that each years forecast is based on previous years cost of
sales.

Full credit can only be obtained if referenced formulae are used in all cells.

Selling, General & Administrative Expense and Other Operating expenses are
expected to stay at the same level as they were in 2016. Row 20 and 23 for these
expenses are already filled for you.

6. The company is planning to invest in research and development in next four years. 2
The expected increase in research & development for each successive year is 9%,
7%, 5% and 3% respectively of the net revenue of the last year. Select cell D21 to
G21 and input an array formula to compute forecasted increase in research and
development for each of the four years (2017-2020).

Example: If the net revenue for 2016 are 20,000 then the increase in Research &
Development Expense for 2017 would be 2,200 i.e. 20,000 * 11%.

Suggestion: You may need to use transpose function within array formula for the
computation in this part.

7. Complete row 22 for forecasted Research and development by adding the increase 1
in Research & development (computed in step 7 above) and the research &
development expense for the previous year.

Example: If the research & development expense for last year is 5,000 and the
increment in research & development expense is calculated as 2,200 (done in step
7). The research & development expense for this year would be 7,200.

Full credit can only be obtained if referenced formulae are used in all cells.

8. Compute the forecasted gross profit, total operating expenses and operating income 1
using the same formulae as done in part B (step 1, 2 and 3) above for all four years
(from 2017 to 2020).

Note: As you enter relevant data, the formatting of the cells should not be changed.
