Answer all questions in this workbook. Be sure to read the introductory text on tabs 1 and 3 as well as these instructions.
Keep in mind that the focus of this project is corporate finance. The information generated by the accounting system is important; but in finance, decisions are driven by an analysis of cash flows rather than profits.
Tab 1 contains a series of exercises on the concept of the time value of money. These exercises do not relate directly to the issues facing LGI.
Tab 2 focuses on the concept of annuities. The first few questions do not pertain specifically to LGI; the latter questions do.
Tab 3 pertains to whether LGI should acquire new assets that may enhance the company’s productivity and thus improve financial performance.
