AMIS 525 –Questions for Exam 3
This set of 13 questions, taken from prior examinations, covers some topics in Chapters 9, 15, 16, 21, 22, and 23.
The purpose of sample questions is to acquaint you with the style and substance of typical exam questions over this material. The exam will consist of “multiple choice” type questions, long problems and short problems. Both calculation type questions and concept type questions, without computations required, will be used.
Please be aware that:
1. sample questions are only one of many resources available to prepare for testing events – reading textbook chapters and working through chapter examples, studying the end-of-chapter review problem and accompanying solution, and reviewing assigned homework items and the published solutions may be more powerful methods to increase your understanding of the topics covered in the course.
2. the exam questions used this quarter will be similar but different from these example questions – understanding the main concepts in each chapter is critical to success on the testing events; remembering a sample question may be of some help but the format of a question on the same topic often differs rendering memory a distant second choice to understanding.

Question 1
WRL Company operates a snack food center at the Hartsfield Airport. On January 1, 2003, RL purchased a special cookie-cutting machine, which has been used for three years. It is January 1, 2006 and WRL is considering whether it should purchase a new, more-efficient  cookie-cutting machine. WRL has two options: (1) continue using the old machine or (2) sell the old machine and purchase a new machine. The seller of the new machine isn’t offering a tradein. The following information has been obtained:
Initial Purchase cost of machines
Useful life from acquisition date (years)
Terminal disposal value at the end of useful life on Dec. 31, 2009, assumed for depreciation purposes
Expected annual cash operating costs:
Variable cost per cookie
Total fixed costs
Depreciation method for tax purposes
Straight line Straight line
Estimated disposal value of machines:
January 1, 2006
December 31, 2009
Expected number of cookies made and sold each
WRL is subject to a 40% income tax rate. Assume that any gain or loss on the sale of machines is treated as an ordinary tax item and will affect the taxes paid by WRL in the year in which it occurs. WRL’s after-tax required rate of return is 16%. Assume all cash flows occur at year-end except for initial investment amounts.
1. You have been asked whether WRL should buy the new machine. To help in your analysis, calculate the following:
a. One-time after-tax cash effect of disposing of the old machine
b. Annual recurring after-tax cash operating savings from using the new machine (variable and fixed)
c. Cash tax savings due to the differences in annual depreciation of the old machine and the new machine
d. Difference in after-tax cash flow from terminal value disposal of new machine and old machine.
2. Use your calculations in requirement 1 and the net present value method to determine whether WRL should use the old machine or acquire the new machine.

Division B has asked Division A of the same company to supply it with 4,000 units of part K932 this year to use in one of it’s products. Division B has received a bid from an outside supplier for the parts at a price of $31.00 per unit. Division A has the capacity to produce 10,000 units of part K932 per year. Division A expects to sell 8,000 units of part K932 to outside customers this year at a price of $36.00 per unit.
