Tierney Enterprises is constructing its cash budget. Its budgeted monthly sales are $5,000, and they are constant from month to month. 40% of its customers pay in the first month and take the 2% discount, while the remaining 60% pay in the month following the sale and do not receive a discount. The firm has no bad debts. Purchases for next month’s sales are constant at 50% of projected sales for the next month. “Other payments,” which include wages, rent, and taxes, are 25% of sales for the current month. Construct a cash budget for a typical month and calculate the average net cash flow during the month.
Sanders Enterprises arranged a revolving credit agreement of $9,000,000 with a group of banks. The firm paid an annual commitment fee of 0.5% of the unused balance of the loan commitment. On the used portion of the revolver, it paid 1.5% above prime for the funds actually borrowed on a simple interest basis. The prime rate was 3.25% during the year. If the firm borrowed $6,000,000 immediately after the agreement was signed and repaid the loan at the end of one year, what was the total dollar annual cost of the revolver?
