Q. Which of the following from Andrei’s Beneish M-score determination is the best indicator that Galaxy could be manipulating earnings?
- The total M-score
- The days sales in receivable index
- The leverage index
Why would the answer be 2, DSR is a factor that indicates what is being manipulated and it is an indication contributing to the total M-Score. But in the end the main indicator should not be the M-Score?
Hey guys, really confused here. The question is about capitalizing leases and you have to calculate the new leverage ratio (D/E). The question gives you average assets= 2075 and average equity= 1156. The capitalized leases are worth 1,297. What is the new financial ratio? So what I did was add the capitalized leases to the average assets to get 3,372, I then subtracted the average equity to get liabilities of 2,216. I then computed D/E as 2,216/1,156 and arrived at 1.92.

When changing from reporting operating to capital lease, in the liability side, why do we add the interest expense and subtract the rent?
is not this equation adjusted in the I/S? Should not the liability side include the principal amount without the interest?
