Financial Management - II (MB2E2):

1. D Let opening stock = x
Closing stock = 1.50 x
Then
x 1.50x
2

= 8,50,000
Therefore opening stock = Rs.680,000
Closing stock = 1.50x
= Rs.10,20,000
Raw material storage period =
Average stock of Raw Material
Stock Consumed
Or, 40 =
8, 50, 000
Stock Consumed
Or, Stock Consumed =
8, 50, 000
40
= Rs.21,250
Purchases = Stock Consumed + Closing stock – Opening stock
= (21,250*360) + 10,20,000 – 6,80,000
= Rs.79,90,000.

2. B Product Sourcing is done by the Production Manager, and not by the Marketing Manager. Hence,
(b) is the answer.
The following strategies available to Marketing Manager are
• Market selection
• Pricing Strategy
• Product strategy
• Promotional strategy.

3. C Ordering costs are associated with maintaining inventories and not maintaining receivables.
Hence (c) is the answer.

4. C The expected profit from granting the second credit to AEL, assuming the payment for the first
order has been made by AEL, is
0.90{0.95*100000-0.05*400000} = Rs.67,500.

5. C The Export-Import policy is announced by Ministry of Commerce.

6. C Structure of Competition is considered under market appraisal of a project. Hence(c) is the
The important issues considered in technical appraisal of a project are :
• Assembly line balancing
• Optimality of the scale of operations
• Availability of the required quality and quantity of raw materials and other inputs
• Availability of power
• Appropriateness of the plant design and layout
• The proposed technology vis-à-vis the alternative state-of-art technologies available
• The technical specifications of the plant and machinery in relation to the proposed
technology.

7. B In case of overtrading, turnover of assets is disproportionately high compared to the volume of
sales. The company is under capitalized with respect to volume of sales. Turnover of current
assets is high. It can be prevented by increasing the asset base through additional finances raised
through the issuance of shares. Statement (I) and (III) are true. Statement (II) is a feature of under
trading in a company. Hence (b) is the answer.

8. A Excise duties on the capital equipments influence the initial cost of the machineries, not the
working capital management policies of a company. Sudden increase in the demand for the
product of a company, adoption of better technology and the sudden stoppage of the supply of a
major raw material affect the finished goods storage period, work in process period and the raw
material storage period respectively. While an increase in the short term interest rate will increase
the interest expenses of the firm against the borrowings for the current assets. Hence (a) is the

9. C Under the cash credit arrangement, the customer is permitted to borrow up to a pre-fixed limit
called the cash credit limit. Security in the form of hypothecation is limited to movable
properties. Hence, statements (I) and (IV) are true.
Overdraft account operates against security in the form of pledge of shares and securities. Under
letter of credit agreement the bank assumes the risk while the supplier provides the credit. Hence,
statements (II) and (III) are not the correct option.

10. C Under Invoice factoring sales ledger administration and collection of receivables are carried out
by the client. Under Non-Recourse factoring credit protection is provided by the factor to the
client. Hence, statements (I) and (III) are true.
Under Recourse factoring credit protection is not provided by the factor to the client. Factoring is
a continuous agreement between the Factor and the Seller of goods and services and not related
to a specific transaction. Hence, statements (II) and (IV) are not the correct option.

11. E Cost of running out of goods are costs associated with the inability to provide materials to the
production department. Hence, statement (e) is a false statement.

12. B The expected daily usage rate =400×0.25+1000×0.5+800×0.25
=800 units
Similarly, expected Lead Time =12×0.25+18×0.50+20×0.25
=17 days
Normal consumption during lead time can be obtained by multiplying the above two values
(i.e.,) Normal consumption during Lead Time=800 units per day × 17 days = 13,600 units.

13. A Cost of trade credit is the implicit cost associated with not availing cash discount within the
stipulated period. Larger the spread between credit and cash discount periods, the lower will be
the cost of trade credit. Statements (I) and (III) are correct option. Hence, (a) is the answer.
Smaller the discount rate offered, lower will be the cost of trade credit. Cash discount can be
availed only when the cost of trade credit exceeds the opportunity cost of cash. Hence, statement
(II) and (IV) are false statements.

14. E Loans and advances include loans to subsidiaries of the company.
Hence (e) is the answer.

15. E Commercial Papers can be issued by body corporate. Hence, (e) is the answer.
16. C After-tax cost of public deposits will be much less than the after-tax cost of bank borrowing.
Hence, option (c) is the answer.
The procedure involved in raising public deposit is fairly simple. Hence, this is a false statement.
No Security is offered in the case of public deposit. It does not have restrictive covenants in
respect of dividends payments, and appointment of senior executives.
As public deposits with maturity periods of two and three years cannot be regarded as current
liabilities, the calculation of ‘working capital gap’ by the bankers to provide short term finance is
likely to be favorable from the company’s point of view.Hence, options (a), (b), (d) and (e) are
false.

17 C Days sales Outstanding=Accounts receivable at the end of the quarter ÷ Average daily sales
Quarter Average Collection Period
First
Second
Third
Fourth
710
(350 450 650) / 90   =44 days

850
(650 720 780) / 92   =36 days
950
(800 780 820) / 92   =36 days

18. A Spontaneous liabilities generally occur during the normal course of business operations where a
company will usually have a ready access to certain sources for financing its current assets. But a
company is required to take proper initiative for the sources of finance as mentioned in the
options (b), (c), (d) and (e) to finance its current assets.

19. B Liquidity can be ensured by investing money in the short-term securities. Hence, statement (b) is
a false statement.

20. B Increase in the average collection period, increase in the finished goods storage period, increase
in the raw materials storage period and increase in the work-in process period all result in
increasing the operating cycle of the firm. Only increase in the average payment period decreases
the net operating cycle of the firm. Hence option (b) is correct.

21. E Current liabilities are economic obligations of a company to be paid within accounting period.
Incomplete work on hand is not a current liability. Hence, (e) is the answer.

22. D Payback Period helps in weeding out risky projects by favoring only those projects which
generate substantial inflows in earlier years. Hence, option (d) is the answer.

23. A VED analysis is for monitoring and controlling of stores and spare parts by classifying them into
3 categories viz., vital, essential and desirable. Hence, option (a) is the answer.

24. C The rate quoted to the Indian importer is as follows:
2 month
Spot rate 58.91
Deduct Swap for 1 month 0.20
Add exchange margin 0.02
58.73

25. D As the nominal foreign currency interest rate would have had to be paid in absence of the
concessionary loan, that rate should be used as the discount rate for calculating the present value
of the repayment of concessionary loan.
Hence, (d) is the answer.

26. A Given the annual usage =8000units

Purchase price =Rs.100/unit
Carrying cost as a percentage of inventory value=20%

4 88,000 0.572 50,336
5 93,000 0.497 46,221
Sum of first two years is= 47,415+54734= 102,149

Discounted payback period is 2 years 11 months = 2.11years.

28. C Assumptions of Black and Scholes model are:
• Returns are log normally distributed
• The risk-free rate is constant and to be a known rate
• The stock pays no dividends during the option’s life
• The markets are efficient
• There are no transaction costs and taxes.
Hence (c) is the correct answer.

29. A The value of SDR is determined is a weighted average value of 4 currencies-US Dollar, Yen,
Pound, Sterling, Euro. Therefore, the fluctuation in the SDRs is not caused by Swiss Franc.

30. E If sales are decreasing, average collection period and the ageing schedule will differ from what
they would be if sales are constant.
Hence (e) is a false statement.

31. D EOQ does not take inflation into consideration. However, when the inflation is predictable
accurately then the EOQ formula can be modified. If inflation rate is known, it should be added
to the annual carrying cost expressed as a percentage. When the minimum order quantity for
purchases is more than the economic order quantity, then there will be an increase in the average
value of inventory which will result in higher incidence of carrying cost.
