      ANSWER ALL QUESTIONS

Using the provided NORTH CAROLINA PERFORMING ARTS CENTER AT CHARLOTTE FOUNDATION (referred to as NCPAC) Financial Statements for the Years Ended August 31, 2014 and June 30, 2013 answer the following questions:

  1. (4 points) Who performed the audit? What was their opinion? What does this type of opinion mean?

  2. (2 points) For which revenue or support line item, would a 10% decline create the greatest financial problem for NCPAC? Why?

  3. (3 points) Calculate the ratio of program expenses to total expenses for 2014 and 2013.  Does this seem reasonable?

  4. (1 point) In 2014 NCPAC shows a substantial increase in operating revenue. Does this nearly 20% increase in revenue and support translate into substantially better financial results? Why?

  6. (14 points) Calculate the following ratios: current, quick, days of cash on hand, receivables turnover, average collection period, fixed asset turnover, total asset turnover, debt, debt to equity, times-interest earned, operating margin, total margin, ROA, RONA

  7. (3 points) Is there anything that you see in the other portions of the financial statements (Notes, Statement of Cash Flows, etc.) that may be of concern?
