Ocean Carriers Analysis

Date: 8/29/2007

TO: MS MARY LINN

CC: PROF. TOM MILLER

FROM: RYAN DALE SEELKE

RE: DECISION ON CAPE SIZE CARRIER

PRIORITY:

Ms Mary Linn,

After careful cash flow analysis and a discount rate (WACC) of 9%, commissioning a capsize carrier for 25 years is the only appropriate option for our firm. However, if the discount were instead 10%, both options would fail the NPV test by yielding negative results. I make this recommendation after thorough analysis of estimated cash flow and with the desire that our required 15-year life span will be amended.

With the expected 9% discount rate, commissioning a capsize carrier for 15 years and then scrapping it as is company policy would ultimately yield a NPV of (1,252,916). However, if Ocean Carriers decided to commission its ship for 25 years, then the NPV would be a positive 368,557. Since current company policy is to scrap ships after 15 years, management should look at these numbers in detail and consider revising its dated policy. As mentioned above, this recommendation hinges on a 9% discount rate. If our cost of debt or cost of equity would change, then this would change our WACC and thus our discount rate. Therefore, if either the cost of equity or debt increases and our subsequent discount rate were to be 10% rather than the expected 9%, then both options would yield a negative NPV and neither should be undertaken. If the opposite happened, and the discount rate was 8%, then both options would yield a positive NPV. In this case, the 25-year option is more profitable due to its NPV being greater. Details are below (Italics showing recommendation at appropriate discount rate).

...HW 1 Due 2/24/13 – by noon, really at noon. Turn in via SAKAI – do not email it. Turn it into a .pdf file using export or save as. Please do not turn in a .doc or a .docx file. Name your file as follows. Lastname_hw1.pdf - like roman_hw1.pdf A Note about calculations in general, please read. Before turning your work in, it is important to ask yourself whether a calculated answer is within the realm of possibilities, independent of how detailed the calculations required to determine the answer were. For example, if I asked you how long it would take a frozen turkey sitting on your counter to thaw, you could do some fairly complicated calculations. You could consider factors like the temperature of the room, the weight of the turkey, the shape of the turkey, skin or no skin, the humidity, the heat capacity of turkey meat, etc...... If you did a lot of math and got an answer of either 4 seconds or 2 months, you should probably suspect you did something wrong. If your answer was 8 hours, that could seem reasonable given what you've likely observed with popsicles and snowmen. So, the point is, you have to apply some common sense and check your answer. You'll be given more credit on the HW (and in life in general) for admitting your answer seems wrong based on simple logic. Explaining your logic and admitting you got tripped up by the calculation is better than standing by an answer that really make no sense at all.

Fixed Costs are the costs that are expected to remain constant regardless volume within some relevant range = ( is the range output [volume] over which the organizations cost structure holds) Semi-fixed costs are those that are fixed at two or more values within the relevant range.

...Mariajose Anare ACG 4401 M & W August 31, 2015 Chapter 1 HW DQ1 The cost and benefits of information may be difficult to quantify as the book estates. And given the difficulty at times any organization may produce information that exceeds cost without realizing it until it too late. Producing information that is valuable but costly does not sound like a good idea, however there are times when organization are force by law to produce information regardless of the cost. For example the IRS mandates regular tax reports quarterly; this practice may cause the organization you spend more than the benefit they may obtain from the information. DQ2 The characteristics that make information useful could go both ways; it can be met simultaneously or one can hider another. For example when information is accessible to users, then it becomes verifiable because independent users can check it; when information is verifiable, then it is reliable because it can be trusted. Information that is relevant it’s usually understandable and presented at the right time. However there are times when a focus on one particular characteristic may lessen others. If the focus is to have a complete report, it may not necessarily be presented at the proper time. Therefore complete information may not be timely. Accessible information may not always be easily understandable making it unverifiable. Problem 4 1. Relevant – F. An accountant receivable aging report is used in......
