Problems: Set A


Presented below are five independent situations.

(a) Three physics professors at MIT have formed a business to improve the speed of information

transfer over the Internet for stock exchange transactions. Each has contributed

an equal amount of cash and knowledge to the venture. Although their approach

looks promising, they are concerned about the legal liabilities that their

business might confront.

(b) Ed Toth, a college student looking for summer employment, opened a bait shop in

a small shed at a local marina.

(c) Joan Stuebben and Ron Klinke each owned separate shoe manufacturing businesses.

They have decided to combine their businesses. They expect that within the coming

year they will need significant funds to expand their operations.

(d) Crystal, Allie, and Harry recently graduated with marketing degrees. They have been

friends since childhood. They have decided to start a consulting business focused on

marketing sporting goods over the Internet.

(e) Mark Willis wants to rent CD players and CDs in airports across the country. His

idea is that customers will be able to rent equipment and CDs at one airport, listen

to the CDs on their flights, and return the equipment and CDs at their destination

airport. Of course, this will require a substantial investment in equipment and CDs,

as well as employees and locations in each airport. Mark has no savings or personal

assets. He wants to maintain control over the business.


In each case, explain what form of organization the business is likely to take—sole proprietorship,

partnership, or corporation. Give reasons for your choice.


Financial decisions often place heavier emphasis on one type of financial statement

over the others. Consider each of the following hypothetical situations independently.

(a) The North Face, Inc. is considering extending credit to a new customer. The terms

of the credit would require the customer to pay within 30 days of receipt of goods.

(b) An investor is considering purchasing common stock of The investor

plans to hold the investment for at least 5 years.

(c) Chase Manhattan is considering extending a loan to a small company. The company

would be required to make interest payments at the end of each year for 5 years, and

to repay the loan at the end of the fifth year.

(d) The president of Campbell Soup is trying to determine whether the company is generating

enough cash to increase the amount of dividends paid to investors in this and

future years, and still have enough cash to buy equipment as it is needed.


In each situation, state whether the decision maker would be most likely to place primary

emphasis on information provided by the income statement, balance sheet, or statement

of cash flows. In each case provide a brief justification for your choice. Choose only

one financial statement in each case.

Determine forms of business

Gabelli Corporation was formed on January 1, 2012. At December 31, 2012, John

Paulus, the president and sole stockholder, decided to prepare a balance sheet, which appeared

as follows.


Balance Sheet

December 31, 2012

Assets Liabilities and Stockholders’ Equity

Cash $20,000 Accounts payable $30,000

Accounts receivable 50,000 Notes payable 15,000

Inventory 36,000 Boat loan 22,000

Boat 24,000 Stockholders’ equity 64,000

John willingly admits that he is not an accountant by training. He is concerned that his

balance sheet might not be correct. He has provided you with the following additional


1. The boat actually belongs to Paulus, not to Gabelli Corporation. However, because

he thinks he might take customers out on the boat occasionally, he decided to list it

as an asset of the company. To be consistent, he also listed as a liability of the corporation

his personal loan that he took out at the bank to buy the boat.

2. The inventory was originally purchased for $25,000, but due to a surge in demand

John now thinks he could sell it for $36,000. He thought it would be best to record

it at $36,000.

3. Included in the accounts receivable balance is $10,000 that John loaned to his brother

5 years ago. John included this in the receivables of Gabelli Corporation so he

wouldn’t forget that his brother owes him money.
