Question description


Hi Folks,

See attached. This is an exercise in constructing a P&L from info provided. It involves determining various line-items based on A/R DSO, Inventory MOH, A/P Days, etc. info. 

NOTE: The NIBT amount (Net Income Before Tax) can be determined by dividing NIAT by (1-tax rate % as a decimal). For example, if NIAT is $250,000 and the tax rate is 38%, the NIBT would be:

NIBT = NIAT/(1 - 0.38) = $250,000/0.62 = $403,226.

The Expenses can be calculated as the difference between GP & NIBT.

Try this & let me know if you have any questions.


Construct a 2013 P&L for a company with the following data and calculate eps: (NOTE: eps is NIAT “available to common shareholders” divided ny share quantity.
