Information about Walher Company Inc utility cost for the last six months of 2011 follows. High
and low method was used to develop a cost formula to product 2012 utility charges, and the
number of machine hours has been found to be appropriate cost driver. Data are as follows

Month Machine Hours Utility Cost

July 33,000 P6,450
August 34,000 6,100
September 32,990 4,995
October 32,000 5,980

How much will be the Utility cost if 33,715 machine hours are projected?


1. (Net Investment) The management of Maingat
Company plans to replace a sorting machine that was
acquired several years ago at a cost of P60,000. The
machine has been depreciated to its residual value of
P10,000. A new sorter can be purchased for P96,000.
The dealer will grant a trade-in allowance of P16,000 on
the old machine. If a new machine is not purchased,
Maingat Company will spend P10,000 to repair the old
machine. Gains and losses on trade-in transactions are
not subject to income taxes. The cost to repair the old
machine can be deducted in computing income taxes.
Income taxes are estimated at 40%. Additional working
capital required is P50,000. Compute the net investment
in this project. ANS: P124,000
2. (Net Investment) Great Value Company is planning to
purchase a new machine costing P50,000 with freight and
installation costs amounting to P1,500. The old unit to be
traded-in will be given a trade-in allowance of P7,500. Other
assets that are to be retired as a result of the acquisition of
machine can be salvaged and sold for P3,000. The loss on the
retirement of these other assets is P1,000 which will reduce
income taxes by P400. If the new equipment is not
purchased, extensive repairs net of taxes on the old
equipment will have to be made at an estimated cost of
P4,000. This cost can be avoided by purchasing the new
equipment. Additional gross working capital of P12,000 will
be needed to support operation planned with the new
equipment. The net investment assigned to the new machine
for decision analysis is: ANS: P48,600
3. (Net Cash Returns) Alalay Company is considering
the acquisition of a machine which will cost

cash flow before taxes of P40,000. Estimated
income tax rate is 30%. What is the annual cash
flow after taxes on this investment?

ANS: P34,000
4. (Cash Returns) The Visayan Division of Mainam
Supply Company has been considering a new

method is also expected to result in annual savings
of labor and overhead method of P64,000. The
depreciation is estimated at P40,000 a year over a
period of ten years. Income taxes are estimated at
30% of income before income taxes. What are the
annual net returns(savings) expected from the new
production. ANS: P93,200

equipment to exploit a mineral deposit on land to which
the company has mineral rights. An engineering and
cost analysis has been made, and it is expected that the
following cash flows will be associated with opening a
mine in the area: Cost of new equipment – P275,000;
