Find the Income Statement. Can you identify revenues? Net income? Anything unusual here for GE?

b. Find another company’s 10k and see if it looks differently than GE. Can you identify revenues? Net income? Anything unusual here for this company?

1.     What is the future value of $10 invested at 10% at the end of 1 year

2.      What is the future value of $10 invested at 10% at the end of 5 year?

3.     Net Present Value ( NPV) Scenario:–  NPV is the  Present value of incoming money minus initial investment.   For a project to be profitable, NPV has to be positive. Let us apply this concept to the following situation:

You own a Pizza Restaurant and you need to expand your cooking capacity to meet demand. You need a new oven which will cost $100,000. Your current oven costs $15,000 a year to operate and you expect to save $5,000 a year operating this new oven. The anticipated life of the oven is 10 years and it will be worth $0 at the end of that period. Your current tax rate is 30%. You expect net profits to increase as follows: Y1 $7,500, Y2 to Y7 $10,000, Y8 to Y10 $12,000.

What is the NPV of this project? Should you buy the oven? Assume 10% interest rate
