3 12. a) An indexation allowance is an allowance to remove the inflationary element of any capital gain, such that any increase in nominal asset values due to inflation is exempt from tax. b) Purchase price of the property in Dec 2007 allowing for indexation = Rs 35, 00, 00 * 152/120= Rs 44, 33,333 Value enhancements as at Dec 2007= Rs5, 00,000 * 152/135= Rs 5, 62,963 Capital gains on sale of first property = Sales prices net of expenses of sale Indexed purchase price and cost of improvements= Rs 60, 00,000 Rs 150,000 - Rs 44, 33,333 - Rs 5, 62,963 = Rs 853,704 Capital gains during the year = Rs 853,704 - Rs10, 00,000 = - Rs 146,296 No capital gains tax is payable by Mr X for 2007 c) Examples of how the Government can structure taxes to encourage or discourage certain kinds of behaviour among individual tax payers include Tax relief on pension contributions to encourage saving for retirement Tax relief on insurance policies or medical premiums to encourage purchase of insurance Tax relief on charitable contributions Tax relief on educational loans to encourage further studies Higher sales tax / VAT on alcohol/ cigarettes to discourage smoking/ drinking d) Examples of how the Government can structure taxes to encourage or discourage certain kinds of behaviour among corporates include Tax relief on pension contributions for employee savings schemes Encourage investments by taxing retained profits less heavily than distributed profits Tax relief on expenditure incurred on research and development Allow write offs of capital expenditure Setting up Special Economic Zones to encourage development of certain areas Allow tax relief to charitable organisations/ NGOs [6] 13. a) Conversion price per equity share= Rs 10,000/ 5= Rs 2,000 Current market price per equity share= Conversion price minus conversion premium = Rs 2,000 - Rs800 = Rs1, 200 b) Convertible loan stock is essentially debt securities with a stock option which can generally be exercised at specific times in the future. Advantages over ordinary share capital Does not lead to dilution of the rights of the existing shareholders or dilution of the Earning per share Lower returns are payable due to the security of a fixed return in the short term Tax efficient as interest payments are tax deductible Advantages over ordinary unsecured loan stock Investors have the possibility of a long term capital gain if they convert to ordinary shares in the future. This additional prospective return means that issuer can offer lower rates of interest on the loan stock as compared to ordinary debt.

4 c) The 2 possible asset structures are Equity and a European style put option with an expiry date at the end of the period and a strike price equal to the current Sensex level Zero coupon bond and a European style call option with an expiry date at the end of the period and a strike price equal to the current Sensex level d) A rights issue is used to raise capital from the existing shareholders by offering further shares at a given price to existing shareholders in proportion to their existing holdings. Scrip issue is where the company gives free shares to all ordinary shareholders in proportion to their existing holdings. A rights issue increases the assets of a company due to cash inflow. It increases both the share capital and reserves of a company. A scrip issue leaves the fundamental value of a company unchanged. It increases the share capital and reduces the reserves while keeping the total liabilities unchanged. [10] 14. a) Beta is a measure of the systematic risk associated with a particular stock, and determines the cost of equity for the company. A value of beta greater than 1 indicates that the stock has historically outperformed the market. b) Risk free rate return= 6% Equity risk premium = 14%-6%= 8% WACC prior to issue of debt = risk free rate + beta * equity risk premium = 6% * 8%= 15.6% After issue of debt Geared beta = Ungeared beta *(1+ gearing * (1-tax rate) = 1.2 * (1+1*(1-30%)) = 2.04 Cost of equity = 6% * 8%= 22.32% WACC = (cost of equity * equity capital + net cost of debt * debt capital)/ total capital = ((22.32% * 50,000, %*( 1-30%) *25,000, %*( 1-30%) *25,000,000))/100,000,000 = % c) The 2 main uses of WACC are Determining the optimal capital structure of the company (financing decision) Determining the cost of capital to be used for capital project appraisal, expansions and mergers (the investment decision) [5]

5 15. NAV Per share (1,40,000 40,000) / 160,000 = paisa Current ratio 2,32,000 / 82,000 = 2.8 times Quick ratio (2,32,000 84,000) / 82,000 = 1.8 times Stock turnover ratio (84,000 / 5,00,000) x 365 = 61 days Profit margin 70,000 / 5,00,000 = 14% Return on capital employed 70,000 / 3,40,000 = 20.6% Debtors turnover ratio (1,20,000 / 5,00,000) x 365 = 88 days Creditors turnover ratio (64,000 / 1,90,000) x 365 = 123 days 16. Current ratio Gives an estimate of the company s liquidity, it compares money due to be received soon with money due to be paid soon. The figure 2.8 indicates that ABC pvt ltd is able to cover its short term debt. Quick ratio Also gives a measure of liquidity, it uses cash or near cash items in the balance sheet. A ratio of 1.8 indicates that the company is solvent. Stock turnover ratio It shows how quickly the company is selling its output. The figure indicates that the company is turning over its stock every 61 days i.e. approximately every two months. Return on capital employed It represents how efficiently company s capital is being used to make profits. ROCE of 20.6% would seem to cover the cost of capital. Debtor s turnover ratio It indicates the number of day s credit that is extended to customers who request payment on credit. The ratio of 88 days is on the higher side, indicating that the company is not operating its credit control functions effectively. Creditor s turnover ratio Creditor s turnover ratio is quite high at 123 days. The company has been able to negotiate good terms from its suppliers. a) The qualified report indicates that the auditors have expressed some observation about the truth and fairness of the financial statements. The most common reason for a qualified report would be that the auditor disagrees to a material extent with the information in the statements. [5]

6 The significance of such an audit report depends on the reaction of readers. In principle, they must decide whether to rely on the figures provided by the directors or the auditor. The fact that the auditors have disagreed with the directors so publicly might undermine investor s confidence in the integrity of board and so the share price might fall. 17. b) Operating Profit = 25, 00,000 Depreciation = 5, 00,000 Increase in inventories = - 28,000 Increase in Trade and other receivables = - 30,000 Decrease in Trade and other payables = - 75,000 Cash generated from operating activities = 28, 67,000 a) The company is in a high risk and high growth industry. It will make losses in the first few years of operations and require high initial capital investments. It will start making profits only when it hits upon substantial oil reserves. Hence it would be inappropriate to issue debt given the high risk associated with the company. [6] It does not have a steady income flow and will have insufficient income cover to service the debt. It has few tangible assets to pledge as collateral for debt. Credit rating agencies will give it a very poor credit rating given the associated high risks, and it will be able to raise debt only at very high interest rates. Issuing equity is a better means of raising capital for such a company. It will attract investors who are willing to invest in such a high risk venture in the hope of large upside potential. Such investors will be looking for capital growth rather than steady dividend flows. b) The risk matrix for Company X is given below. exploration rights negotiations 2 marks, - ½ mark per risk for any of the below risks construction of drilling sites for testing and exploration 2.5 marks, - ½ mark per risk for any of the below risks selling off identified oil resources- 1.5 marks, - ½ mark per risk for any of the below risks Risk/ Stage Political Exploration rights negotiations Political instability could lead to significant delays in the permit granting process. The government may give preference to local firms and be wary of international companies. Construction of drilling sites for testing and exploration Regional conflicts or domestic instability could delay the exploration process. Selling off identified oil resources Possible change in political regime may render the contract invalid. The new government may turn hostile esp if large oil reserves are discovered and look to nationalise the oil findings.

7 Natural/ Environmental Project Financial Economic Environmentalists may raise concerns about whether aquatic life will get adversely impacted Project feasibility study will need to be carried out based on the cost of obtaining permits for drilling The government may quote very high prices for awarding the off shore drilling rights, or engage in a bidding process among competing firms. Fluctuations in local currency may affect the negotiated price for purchase of drilling rights. Bad weather and typhoons could damage the production infrastructure or lead to project delays. Operational procedures may lead to environmental hazards Difficulties in construction of drilling sites and oil wells may be greater than expected. Local skilled labour may not be available to provide assistance. Safety standards may not be met resulting in on site accidents. There is risk of equipment or technology malfunctions. There is risk of exceeding the exploratory budget. This could lead to possible withholding of funds until concerns of financiers are met. Any change in global or local economic conditions, inflation, interest rates could impact the project costs and costs of leasing any additional equipment. Environmental concerns relating to leakage and spills involved in harnessing oil will have to be addressed Risk that no/ insubstantial oil reserves are found such that the project is loss making. This will affect the company's ability to raise finances in the future as well. Unpredictable and large changes in world oil prices or change in demand and supply of oil could lead to lower than expected returns of investment. Q17c Cost of the project = \$40m Figures in \$ millions

8 Probab ility if oil is found Probability of below scenarios \$70 \$100 \$40 i)nothing ii) small find iii) big find iv) jackpot find Expected Returns The expected return on the project = 1/3* /3* /3*30.25 = \$211.75m The net profit = m 40 m= \$ m If additional testing is carried out Cost of the project = \$50m Figures in \$ millions Probability Probabil ity if oil is found \$70 \$100 \$40 i)nothing ii) small find iii) big find iv) jackpot find Returns The expected return on the project = 1/3* /3* /3*36.30 = \$254.1m The net profit 254.1m 50m= \$204.1 m Since the expected net profit increases after carrying out the additional testing, it is recommended that the additional testing be undertaken. Q17d Advantages of NPV method The NPV method is a discounted cashflow approach to project evaluation. It is a direct measure of the expected increase in the value of a firm Average NPV across a range of scenarios can be found by summing the value multiplied by the probability. Disadvantages of NPV method

9 Difficult to determine a suitable discount rate to use A high discount rate gives very little weightage to cashflows that happen later on in the life of the project. Advantages of using IRR The IRR is the interest rate that gives the project a zero NPV. It highlights the return achieved by a project and is intuitively easier to understand for non-experts. Disadvantages of using IRR Can have multiple or no solutions if there are net negative cashflows at certain points Ignores the scale of a project Ignores the timing of receipt of future positive cashflows [20] 18. a) There is little point in providing information which is so detailed as to be unintelligible. The statements can, therefore, be made clearer by showing totals instead of listing every item. b) Sales 2, 70,000 Less: Sales Return 6,000 2, 64,000 Closing stock 24,000 2, 88,000 Less: Opening Stock 20,000 Purchases 80,000 Less: Purchase return 4,000 76,000 Carriage Inward 3,600 Wages plus wages outstanding (42, ,000) 45,000 Factory Lighting 1,400 Gross Profit 1, 42,000 Add: Discount 5,200 1, 47,200 Less: Carriage outwards 800 Salaries plus o/s salaries (27, ,500) 30,000 Travelling expenses 3,700 Rent & taxes 7,200 General expenses 10,500 Insurance less prepaid insurance (1, ) 1,200 Depreciation Plant and machinery plus furniture (4, ,600) 6,100 Net Profit 87,700 Balance Sheet Assets Cash in Hand 24,300 Bills receivable 2,500 Sundry debtors 52,000 Closing stock 24,000
