B. \$474 million. C. \$485 million. D. \$545 million.

626 + 243 + 186*0.68 - 25 - 535 = 485 = C?

yes C its a violation to post this question it is stright out of the sample exam

So, how did u get the net working capital?

u take into account only the non cash change in working capital 80-150 = -25 Hey while we are at this in the sample 2 for FCFE calculation in Q 8 why dont they subtract Interest expense from FCFF weird >???

For the sake of clarity. I seem not to see the non cash change in working capital

nor me

Can we get some clarity in the house, pleeaasse…

Ok, it’s 4 AM here and I have lost all my coherence… still I will give it a try total change in CA = change in AR + change in Inv + change in other assets total change in CA = -4 + 71 + 13 = 80 total change in CL = change in AR + change in Inv + change in other assets total change in CL = 105 change in NWC = 80 - 105 = -25

dinesh go to bed this is getting ridiculos

I’m not that stupid in wondering why change in WC = Change in CA - Change in CL am I? Lots of other things change current assets and current liabilities don’t they? The current portion of long term debt for example? Humpf.

Thanks guys… I can see clearly now…

Still a bit hazy for me as I think it’s flawed… but guess if it comes up on the day I’ll now get the mark!
