Analysis and Interpretation of Profitability Balance sheets and income statements for Nordstrom, Inc. follow. Refer to these financial statements to answer the requirements.
(a) Compute net operating profit after tax (NOPAT) for 2010. Assume that the combined federal and statutory rate is: 37.0%. (Round your answer to the nearest whole number.) 2010 NOPAT = $Answer (b) Compute net operating assets (NOA) for 2010 and 2009. 2010 NOA = $Answer 2009 NOA = $Answer (c) Compute RNOA, net operating profit margin (NOPM), and net operating asset turnover (NOAT) for 2010. Do not use NOPM x NOAT to calculate RNOA. (Do not round until final answers. Round to two decimal places.) 2010 RNOA = Answer % 2010 NOPM = Answer % 2010 NOAT = Answer (d) Compute net operating obligations (NNO) for 2010 and 2009. 2010 NNO = $Answer 2009 NNO = $Answer (e) Compute return on equity (ROE) for 2010. (Round your answers to two decimal places. Do not round until your final answer.) 2010 ROE = Answer % (f) Infer the nonoperating return component of ROE for 2010. (Use answers from above to calculate. Round your answer to two decimal places.) 2010 nonoperating return = Answer % (g) Comment on the difference between ROE and RNOA. Which of the following statements best describes the inference from the difference between Nordstrom’s ROE and RNOA? ROE>RNOA implies that Nordstrom’s equity has grown faster than its NOA. The faster increase of equity compared to NOA allows higher dividends to be paid to Nordstrom’s stockholders. ROE>RNOA implies that Nordstrom is able to borrow money to fund operating assets that yield a return greater than its cost of debt. The excess accrues to the benefit of Nordstrom’s stockholders. ROE>RNOA implies that Nordstrom has taken on too much financial leverage. The high financial leverage results in a higher interest rate on Nordstrom’s debt, therefore the cost of debt is greater. ROE>RNOA implies that Nordstrom has increased its financial leverage during the period. The increase in financial leverage also increases Nordstrom’s risk, therefore increasing the expected ROE by Nordstrom’s stockholders.

How much of this change is attributable to volume versus price change? 2008 change in foreign net sales: Answer by Answer % Volume change: Answer by Answer % Price change: Answer by Answer % Exchange rate: Answer by Answer % (c) Is the change in total net sales equal to the average of the changes in U.S. and foreign net sales? What does this imply? Yes, U.S. sales increase by 16 percent, and foreign sales increase by 10 percent, for an average increase of 13%. This implies that U.S. sales are much larger than foreign sales. Yes, U.S. sales increase by 16 percent, and foreign sales increase by 10 percent, for an average increase of 13%. This implies that U.S. sales are much smaller than foreign sales. Yes, U.S. sales increase by 16 percent, and foreign sales increase by 10 percent, for an average increase of 13%. This implies that U.S. sales and foreign sales are fairly close in dollar terms.

Question 5
Constructing and Assessing Income Statements Using Percentageof Completion On March 15, 2012, Frankel Construction contracted to build a shopping center at a contract price of $120 million. The schedule of expected (which equals actual) cash collection and contract costs follow ($ millions):
(a) Calculate the amount of revenue, expense, and net income for each of the three years 2012 through 2014 using the percentageofcompletion revenue recognition method. Rounding instructions: Round percentages to the nearest whole number. Use rounded percentages for remaining calculations. Round revenue and income to the nearest whole number.
(b) Which of the following statements best summarizes our conclusion about the usefulness of the percentageofcompletion method for this company? The percentage ofcompletion method is not useful because it does not provide information about the total revenues over the life of the project. The percentageofcompletion method is an acceptable method under GAAP. The percentageofcompletion method does not provide a good estimate of the revenue and income earned in each period. The percentage ofcompletion method is not useful because it is so dependent upon the completion estimate used by the company and can be easily manipulated.
