Exercise 9.9
The write down of Impaired Assets LO4
For several years, a number of Food Lion, Inc., grocery stores were unprofitable. The company closed, and continues to close, some of these locations. It is apparent that the company will not be able to recover the cost of the assets associated with the closed stores. Thus, the current value of the impaired assets must be written down (see the Case in Point on page 381).
A recent Food Lion income statement reports a $9.5 million charge against income pertaining to the write-down of impaired assets.
a. Explain why Food Lion must write down the current carrying value of its unprofitable stores.
Food Lion must write down the current carrying value of its unprofitable stores because the stores are an asset that has depreciable value. The Food Lion stores are impaired plant assets in which Food Lion cannot reasonably expect to recover the costs associated with the stores. According to Williams, Haka, and Bettner if the cost of an asset cannot be recovered through future use or sale the asset should be written down to its net realizable value to a loss account. The depreciable assets must be removed from the asset account and the accumulated depreciation is removed from the related contra-asset account, as Food Lion can no longer generate any income from these stores.
b. Explain why the recent $9.5 million charge to write down these impaired assets is considered a noncash expense.
The $9.5 million charge to write down these impaired assets is considered a noncash expense but appears in the statement of cash flows as investing activities. This is because the gains or losses associated with the impaired assets is not taxable income and do not determine taxable income. This is because cash receipts are equal to the total proceeds received from the sale, not just the amount of any gain and because depreciable…...

In the Deep Creek Mining Company example described in this chapter (Table 7.1), suppose again that labor is the variable input and capital is the fixed input. Specifically, assume that the firm owns a piece of equipment having a 500-bhp rating. a. Complete the following table: LABOR INPUT L (NO. OF WORKERS) | TOTAL PRODUCT TPL (= Q) | MARGINAL PRODUCT MPL | AVERAGE PRODUCT APL | 1 | 3 | - | 3 | 2 | 6 | 3 | 2 | 3 | 16 | 10 | 5.33 | 4 | 29 | 13 | 7.25 | 5 | 43 | 14 | 8.6 | 6 | 55 | 12 | 9.16 | 7 | 58 | 3 | 8.28 | 8 | 60 | 2 | 7.5 | 9 | 59 | -1 | 6.5 | 10 | 56 | -3 | 5.6 | b.

...Exercise and Obesity Obesity is a serious medical condition that affects adults and children. In United States there is two-thirds of adults that is obese and about a quarter of 2-5 years old and one-third of school age children that is obese.

Ways to exercise is by walking, going up and down stairs and even stretch to help strengthen muscles and bones. It’s very important that children who are obese exercise daily because it is a high risk that they will be obese for their entire live. Eating healthy and cutting down on portion will also help prevent obesity. Obesity effects children on many different levels to where emotional stress takes place.

Managerial Accounting: Fifth Edition Chapter 1: Exercise 14 – Problems 2 & 4 Chapter 2: Exercises 9 & 12 – Problems 1 & 6

...CHAPTER 1: Exercise 14 If Ken stayed open on Saturdays, the added income would be $130,000 per year ($2,500 x 52), while the additional costs are shown to be $1,000 ($700 + $500 + $100 + $200). Using these two figures, we can calculate the opportunity cost (the loss from an opportunity not taken), which would be $1,500 ($2,500 - $1,000). To me, this says that Ken should keep his shop open on Saturday’s. Rent or depreciation of office equipment do not need to be calculated because these are fixed costs. They would not change regardless of how many days his shop is open nor his shops production. Also, rent of course would not change if his shop stays open on Saturday’s because rent covers the whole month. Problem 2 a.) If we reference 1-1 so we can see the production costs, we need to add the ingredient costs of $20,000 + labor costs of $12,000, totaling $32,000. Then divide that by the number of jars that actually produced (25,000). This equals $1.28/one jar of salsa. The incremental cost is calculated as follows: $1.28 x 50,000 (extra jars of salsa) = $64,000. b.) The revenue started out at $1,625,000 (325,000 jars x $5.00), while the new revenue would be $1,725,000 (375,000 x $4.60). After calculating the difference, we can see that the incremental revenue after the reduction of price would be $100,000 ($1,725,000 - $1,625,000). c.) Yes, he should lower the price of its salsa. Problem 4 a.) On page 6 of our text book, we learn about the......

I have balanced my individual nutritional need with physical activity for several years. Though, I never realized it this was forming habits that lead to a plan for maintain healthy weight and preventing disease. While my grandfather was alive, he did not pay particular close attention to his exercise and eating habits, though it did not contribute to his death, he did develop diabetes. My father has fallen into the same footsteps as my grandfather, and he too has diabetes. These signs lead me to believe that I too may have a predisposition to diabetes, it is important to keep this life plan and constantly modify elements of the plan as I age to keep in good health, especially with my family history. I may also have additional nutrition problems associated with my absolute dislike of green vegetables. By eating very little of these items I am lowering the amount of essential vitamins that my body needs. ......

...CHAPTER 9 RECEIVABLES DISCUSSION QUESTIONS 1. Receivables are normally classified as (1) accounts receivable, (2) notes receivable, or (3) other receivables. 2. Dan’s Hardware should use the direct write-off method because it is a small business that has a relatively small number and volume of accounts receivable. 3. Contra asset, credit balance 4. The accounts receivable and allowance for doubtful accounts may be reported at a net amount of $661,500 ($673,400 – $11,900) in the Current Assets section of the balance sheet. In this case, the amount of the allowance for doubtful accounts should be shown separately in a note to the financial statements or in parentheses on the balance sheet. Alternatively, the accounts receivable may be shown at the gross amount of $673,400 less the amount of the allowance for doubtful accounts of $11,900, thus yielding net accounts receivable of $661,500. 5. (1) The percentage rate used is excessive in relationship to the accounts written off as uncollectible; hence, the balance in the allowance is excessive. (2) A substantial volume of old uncollectible accounts is still being carried in the accounts receivable account. 6. An estimate based on analysis of receivables provides the most accurate estimate of the current net realizable value. 7. a. b. 8.
