Many approaches might be used in teaching the basic financial management course. Fundamentals of Financial Management sequences things in order to cover certain foundation material first, including: the role of financial management; the business, tax, and financial setting; the mathematics of finance; basic valuation concepts; the idea of a trade-off between risk and return; and financial analysis, planning, and control. Given a coverage of these topics, we then have found it easier to build upon this base in the subsequent teaching of financial management.

More specifically, the book goes on to investigate current asset and liability decisions and then moves on to consider longer-term assets and financing. A good deal of emphasis is placed on working capital management. This is because we have found that people tend to face problems here when going into entry-level business positions to a greater extent than they do to other asset and financing area problems.

Nonetheless, capital budgeting, capital structure decisions, and long-term financing are very important, particularly considering the theoretical advances in finance in recent years. These areas have not been slighted. Many of the newer frontiers of finance are explored in the book. In fact, one of the book’s distinguishing features is its ability to expose the student reader to many new concepts in modern finance. By design, this exposure is mainly verbal with only limited use of mathematics. The last section of the book deals with the more specialized topics of: convertibles, exchangeables, and warrants; mergers and other forms of corporate restructuring; and international financial management.

While the book may be used without any formal prerequisites, often the student would have had an introductory course in accounting and economics (and perhaps a course in statistics). Completion of these courses allows the instructor to proceed more rapidly over financial analysis, capital budgeting, and certain other topics. The book has a total of twelve appendices, which deal with more advanced issues and/or topics of special interest. The book’s continuity is not adversely affected if these appendices are omitted. While we feel that all of the appendices are relevant for a thorough understanding of financial management, the instructor can choose those most appropriate to his or her course.

If the book is used in its entirety, the appropriate time frame is a semester or, perhaps, two quarters. For the one-quarter basic finance course, we have found it necessary to omit coverage of certain chapters. However, it is still possible to maintain the book’s thrust of providing a fundamental understanding of financial management. For the one-quarter course, the following sequencing has proven manageable:

Chapter 14 RISK AND MANAGERIAL (REAL) OPTIONS IN CAPITAL BUDGETING (some sections may be omitted in an abbreviated course)


Chapter 16 OPERATING AND FINANCIAL LEVERAGE (may be omitted in an abbreviated course)





Chapter 21 TERM LOANS AND LEASES (may be omitted in an abbreviated course)

*Note: Some instructors prefer to cover Chapters 6 and 7 before going into Chapters 3-5. These chapters have been written so that this can be done without any problem.

Van Horne and Wachowicz, Fundamentals of Financial Management, 13th edition, Instructor’s Manual

In a one-quarter course, few if any of the appendices are assigned. While chapter substitutions can be made, we think that 19 or 20 chapters are about all that one should try to cover in a quarter. This works out to an average of two chapters a week. For working capital management and longer-term financing, it is possible to cover more than two chapters a week. For the time value of money and capital budgeting, the going is typically slower. Depending on the situation, the pace can be slowed or quickened to suit the circumstances.

The semester course allows one to spend more time on the material. In addition, one can take up most of the chapters omitted in a one-quarter course. Two quarters devoted to finance obviously permits an even fuller and more penetrating exploration of the topics covered in the book. Here the entire book, including many of the appendices, can be assigned together with a special project or two.

The coverage suggested above is designed to give students a broad perspective of the role of financial management. This perspective embraces not only the important managerial considerations but certain valuation and conceptual considerations as well. It gives a suitably wide understanding of finance for the non-major while simultaneously laying the groundwork for more advanced courses in finance for the student who wants to take additional finance courses.

For the one-quarter required course, the usual pedagogy is the lecture coupled perhaps with discussion sections. In the latter it is possible to cover cases and some computer exercises. The semester course or the two-quarter sequence permits the use of more cases and other assignments. Students (and instructors) are invited to visit the text’s website, Wachowiczs Web World, currently residing at:

The Role of Financial Management

Increasing shareholder value over time is the bottom line of every move we make.

ROBERT GOIZUETA Former CEO, The Coca-Cola Company

Chapter 1: The Role of Financial Management

10 © Pearson Education Limited 2008


1. With an objective of maximizing shareholder wealth, capital will tend to be allocated to the most productive investment opportunities on a risk-adjusted return basis. Other decisions will also be made to maximize efficiency. If all firms do this, productivity will be heightened and the economy will realize higher real growth. There will be a greater level of overall economic want satisfaction. Presumably people overall will benefit, but this depends in part on the redistribution of income and wealth via taxation and social programs. In other words, the economic pie will grow larger and everybody should be better off if there is no reslicing. With reslicing, it is possible some people will be worse off, but that is the result of a governmental change in redistribution. It is not due to the objective function of corporations.

2. Maximizing earnings is a nonfunctional objective for the following reasons:

a. Earnings is a time vector. Unless one time vector of earnings clearly dominates all other time vectors, it is impossible to select the vector that will maximize earnings.

b. Each time vector of earning possesses a risk characteristic. Maximizing expected earnings ignores the risk parameter.

c. Earnings can be increased by selling stock and buying treasury bills. Earnings will continue to increase since stock does not require out-of-pocket costs.

d. The impact of dividend policies is ignored. If all earnings are retained, future earnings are increased. However, stock prices may decrease as a result of adverse reaction to the absence of dividends.

Maximizing wealth takes into account earnings, the timing and risk of these earnings, and the dividend policy of the firm.

3. Financial management is concerned with the acquisition, financing, and management of assets with some overall goal in mind. Thus, the function of financial management can be broken down into three major decision areas: the investment, financing, and asset management decisions.

4. Yes, zero accounting profit while the firm establishes market position is consistent with the maximization of wealth objective. Other investments where short-run profits are sacrificed for the long-run also are possible.

5. The goal of the firm gives the financial manager an objective function to maximize. He/she can judge the value (efficiency) of any financial decision by its impact on that goal. Without such a goal, the manager would be "at sea" in that he/she would have no objective criterion to guide his/her actions.

6. The financial manager is involved in the acquisition, financing, and management of assets. These three functional areas are all interrelated (e.g., a decision to acquire an asset necessitates the financing and management of that asset, whereas financing and management costs affect the decision to invest).

7. If managers have sizable stock positions in the company, they will have a greater understanding for the valuation of the company. Moreover, they may have a greater incentive to maximize shareholder wealth than they would in the absence of stock holdings. However, to the extent persons have not only human capital but also most of their financial

Van Horne and Wachowicz, Fundamentals of Financial Management, 13th edition, Instructor’s Manual

11 © Pearson Education Limited 2008

capital tied up in the company, they may be more risk averse than is desirable. If the company deteriorates because a risky decision proves bad, they stand to lose not only their jobs but have a drop in the value of their assets. Excessive risk aversion can work to the detriment of maximizing shareholder wealth as can excessive risk seeking, if the manager is particularly risk prone.

8. Regulations imposed by the government constitute constraints against which shareholder wealth can still be maximized. It is important that wealth maximization remain the principal goal of firms if economic efficiency is to be achieved in society and people are to have increasing real standards of living. The benefits of regulations to society must be evaluated relative to the costs imposed on economic efficiency. Where benefits are small relative to the costs, businesses need to make this known through the political process so that the regulations can be modified. Presently there is considerable attention being given in Washington to deregulation. Some things have been done to make regulations less onerous and to allow competitive markets to work.

9. As in other things, there is a competitive market for good managers. A company must pay them their opportunity cost, and indeed this is in the interest of stockholders. To the extent managers are paid in excess of their economic contribution, the returns available to investors will be less. However, stockholders can sell their stock and invest elsewhere. Therefore, there is a balancing factor that works in the direction of equilibrating managers’ pay across business firms for a given level of economic contribution.

10. In competitive and efficient markets, greater rewards can be obtained only with greater risk. The financial manager is constantly involved in decisions involving a trade-off between the two. For the company, it is important that it do well what it knows best. There is little reason to believe that if it gets into a new area in which it has no expertise that the rewards will be commensurate with the risk that is involved. The risk-reward trade-off will become increasingly apparent to the student as this book unfolds.

11. Corporate governance refers to the system by which corporations are managed and controlled. It encompasses the relationships among a company’s shareholders, board of directors, and senior management. These relationships provide the framework within which corporate objectives are set and performance is monitored.

The board of directors sets company-wide policy and advises the CEO and other senior executives, who manage the company’s day-to-day activities. The Board reviews and approves strategy, significant investments, and acquisitions. The board also oversees operating plans, capital budgets, and the company’s financial reports to common shareholders.

12. The controller’s responsibilities are primarily accounting in nature. Cost accounting, as well as budgets and forecasts, would be for internal consumption. External financial reporting would be provided to the IRS, the SEC, and the stockholders.

The treasurer’s responsibilities fall into the decision areas most commonly associated with financial management: investment (capital budgeting, pension management), financing (commercial banking and investment banking relationships, investor relations, dividend disbursement), and asset management (cash management, credit management).

The Business, Tax, and Financial Environments

Corporation, n. An ingenious device for obtaining individual profit without individual responsibility.

AMBROSE BIERCE The Devil’s Dictionary

Van Horne and Wachowicz, Fundamentals of Financial Management, 13th edition, Instructor’s Manual

13 © Pearson Education Limited 2008


1. The principal advantage of the corporate form of business organization is that the corporation has limited liability. The owner of a small family restaurant might be required to personally guarantee corporate borrowings or purchases anyway, so much of this advantage might be eliminated. The wealthy individual has more at stake and unlimited liability might cause, one failing business to bring down the other healthy businesses.

2. The liability is limited to the amount of the investment in both the limited partnership and in the corporation. However, the limited partner generally does not have a role in selecting the management or in influencing the direction of the enterprise. On a pro rata basis, stockholders are able to select management and affect the direction of the enterprise. Also, partnership income is taxable to the limited partners as personal income whereas corporate income is not taxed unless distributed to the stockholders as dividends.

3. With both a sole proprietorship and partnership, a major drawback is the legal liability of the owners. It extends beyond the financial resources of the business to the owners personally. Fringe benefits are not deductible as an expense. Also, both forms of organization lack the corporate feature of “unlimited life”. With the partnership there are problems of control and management. The ownership is not liquid when it comes to planning for individual estates. Decision making can be cumbersome. An LLC generally lacks the feature of “unlimited life”, and complete transfer of an ownership interest is usually subject to the approval of at least a majority of the other LLC members.

4. The chief beneficiaries are smaller companies where the first $75,000 in taxable income is a large portion, if not all, of their total taxable income.

5. Accelerated depreciation is used up to the point it is advantageous to switch to straight line depreciation. A one-half year convention is followed in the first year, which reduces the cost recovery in that year from what would otherwise be the case. Additionally, a one-half year convention is followed in the year following the asset class. This pushes out the depreciation schedule, which is disadvantageous from a present value standpoint. The double declining balance method is used for the first four asset classes, 3, 5, 7 and 10 years. The asset category determines the project’s depreciable life.

6. The immunity from each other’s taxing power dates back to the early part of the 19th century. It used to apply to salaries of government employees as well. The exemption is historical, and it is hard to rationalize from the standpoint of economic/taxing efficiency.

7. Personal tax rates are progressive up to a point, then become regressive.

8. With the differential taxation of ordinary income and capital gains, securities with a higher likelihood of capital gains are tax advantaged. These include low dividend common stocks, common stocks in general, discount bonds, real estate, and other investments of this sort.

9. Depreciation changes the timing of tax payments. The longer these payments can be delayed, the better off the business is.

10. One advantage to S becoming a corporation occurs when investors have outside income against which to use losses by the company. Even with no outside income, stockholders still may find S to be advantageous. If dividends are paid, the stockholder under a S corporation

Chapter 2: The Business, Tax, and Financial Environments

is subject only to taxation on the profits earned by the company. Under the corporate method, the company pays taxes on its profits and then the owners pay personal income taxes on the dividends paid to them.

11. Tax incentives are the result of special interest groups influencing legislators. For example, exporters influenced the passage of DISCs. Doctors and attorneys influenced the passage of the Keogh pension plans. Some of these incentives benefit society as a whole; others benefit only a few at the expense of the rest of society. It is hard to imagine all individuals placing the interest of the whole above their own interests. Therefore, it is difficult to perceive that tax incentives will be discontinued. Further, some incentives can be used to benefit large groups of people.

12. The purpose of the carryback and carryforward provisions is to allow the cyclical company with large profit swings to obtain most of the tax benefits available to a company with more steady profits. Also, the provision protects the company with a large loss in a given year. While if a company has steady losses it does not benefit from this provision, the marginal company with profit swings does.

13. Financial markets allow for efficient allocation in the flow of savings in an economy to ultimate users. In a macro sense, savings originate from savings-surplus economic units whose savings exceed their investment in real assets. The ultimate users of these savings are savings-deficit economic units whose investments in real assets exceed their savings. Efficiency is introduced into the process through the use of financial markets. Since the savings-surplus and savings-deficit units are usually different entities, markets serve to channel these funds at the least cost and inconvenience to both. As specialization develops, efficiency increases. Loan brokers, secondary markets, and investment bankers all serve to expedite this flow from savers to users.

14. Financial intermediaries provide an indirect channel for the flow of funds from savers to ultimate users. These institutions include commercial banks, savings and loan associations, life insurance companies, pension and profit-sharing funds and savings banks. Their primary function is the transformation of funds into more attractive packages for savers. Services and economies of scale are side benefits of this process. Pooling of funds, diversification of risk, transformation of maturities and investment expertise are desirable functions that financial intermediaries perform.

15. Differences in maturity, default risk, marketability, taxability, and option features affect yields on financial instruments. In general, the longer the maturity, the greater the default risk, the lower the marketability and the more the return is subject to ordinary income taxation as opposed to capital gains taxation or no taxation, the higher the yield on the instrument. If the investor receives an option (e.g., a conversion feature or warrant), the yield would be lower than otherwise. Conversely, if the firm issuing the security receives an option, such as a call feature, the investor must be compensated with a higher yield. Another factor – one not taken up in this chapter – is the coupon rate. Lower the coupon rate, greater the price volatility of a bond, and all other things being the same, generally higher the yield.

16. The market becomes more efficient when the cost of financial intermediation is reduced. This cost is represented by the difference in interest rate between what the ultimate saver receives and what the ultimate borrower pays. Also, the inconvenience to one or both parties is an indirect cost. When financial intermediation reduces these costs, the market becomes more efficient. The market becomes more complete when special types of financial instruments and financial processes are offered in response to an unsatisfied

demand by investors. For example, the new product might be a zero-coupon bond and the new process, automatic teller machines.

17. These exchanges serve as secondary markets wherein the buyer and seller meet to exchange shares of companies that are listed on the exchange. These markets have provided economies of time and scale in the past and have facilitated exchange among interested parties.

18. a. All other things being the same, the cost of funds (interest rates) would rise. If there are no disparities in savings pattern, the effect would fall on all financial markets.

b. Given a somewhat segmented market for mortgages, it would result in mortgage rates falling and rates on other financial instruments rising somewhat.

c. It would lower the demand for common stock, bonds selling at a discount, real estate, and other investments where capital gains are an attraction for investment. Prices would fall for these assets relative to fixed income securities until eventually the expected returns after taxes for all financial instruments were in equilibrium.

d. Great uncertainty would develop in the money and capital markets and the effect would likely be quite disruptive. Interest rates would rise dramatically and it would be difficult for borrowers to find lenders willing to lend at a fixed interest rate. Disequilibrium would likely to continue to occur until the rate of inflation reduced to a reasonable level.

e. Financial markets would be less efficient in channeling funds from savers to investors in real estate.

19. Answers to this question will differ depending on the financial intermediary that is chosen. The economic role of all is to channel savings to investments at a lower cost and/or with less inconvenience to the ultimate borrower and to the ultimate saver than would be the case in their absence. Their presence improves the efficiency of financial markets in allocating savings to the most productive investment opportunities.

20. Money markets serve the short-term liquidity needs of investors. The usual line of demarkation is one year; money markets include instruments with maturities of less than a year while capital markets involve securities with maturities of more than one year. However, both markets are financial markets with the same economic purpose so the distinction of maturity is somewhat arbitrary. Money markets involve instruments that are impersonal; funds flow on the basis of risk and return. A bank loan, for example, is not a money-market instrument even though it might be short-term.

21. Transaction costs impede the efficiency of financial markets. The larger they are, the less efficient are financial markets. Financial institutions and brokers perform an economic service for which they must be compensated. The means of compensation is transaction costs. If there is competition among them, transaction costs will be reduced to justifiable levels.

22. The major sources are bank loans, bond issues, mortgage debt, and stock issues.

23. Financial brokers, such as investment bankers in particular as well as mortgage bankers, facilitate the matching of borrowers in need of funds with savers having funds to lend. For this matching and servicing, the broker earns a fee that is determined by competitive forces. In addition, security exchanges and the over-the-counter market improve the secondary market and hence the efficiency of the primary market where securities are sold originally.

5. a. The expected real rate of return is 5 percent, and the inflation premium is 4 percent.

b. The lender gains in that his real return is 7 percent instead of the 5 percent that was expected. In contrast, the borrower suffers in having to pay a higher real return than expected. In other words, the loan is repaid with more expensive dollars than anticipated.

c. With 6 percent inflation, the real return of the lender is only 3 percent, so he suffers whereas the borrower gains.

6. No specific solution is recommended. The student should consider default risk, maturity, marketability, and any tax effects.


1. a. Henry is responsible for all liabilities, book as well as contingent. If the lawsuit were lost, he would lose all his net assets, as represented by a net worth of $467,000. Without the lawsuit, he still is responsible for $90,000 in liabilities if for some reason the business is unable to pay them.

b. He still could lose all his net assets because Kobayashi’s net worth is insufficient to make a major dent in the lawsuit: $600,000 - $36,000 = $564,000. As the two partners have substantially different net worths, they do not share equally in the risk. Henry has much more to lose.

c. Under the corporate form, he could lose the business, but that is all. The net worth of the business is $263,000 - $90,000 = $173,000, and this represents Henry’s personal financial stake in the business. The remainder of his net worth, $467,000 - $173,000 = $294,000, would be protected under the corporate form.

3. a. At $2 million in expenses per $100 million in loans, administrative costs come to 2 percent. Therefore, to just break even, the firm must set rates so that (at least) a 2 percent difference exists between the deposit interest rate and the mortgage rate. In addition, market conditions dictate that 3 percent is the floor for the deposit rate, while 7 percent is the ceiling for the mortgage rate. Suppose that Wallopalooza wished to increase the current deposit rate and lower the current mortgage rate by equal amounts while earning a before-tax return spread of 1 percent. It would then offer a deposit rate of 3.5 percent and a mortgage rate of 6.5 percent. Of course, other answers are possible, depending on your profit assumptions.

b. Before-tax profit of 1 percent on $100 million in loans equals $1 million.

4. a. The premium attributable to default risk and lower marketability is 9% – 7.25% = 1.75%.

b. The premium attributable to maturity is 7.25% - 6% = 1.25%. In this case, default risk is held constant and marketability, for the most part, is also held constant.

The Time Value of Money

The chief value of money lies in the fact that one lives in a world in which it is overestimated.

H.L. MENCKEN From A Mencken Chrestomathy

Chapter 3: The Time Value of Money

20 © Pearson Education Limited 2008


1. Simple interest is interest that is paid (earned) on only the original amount, or principal, borrowed (lent).

2. With compound interest, interest payments are added to the principal and both then earn interest for subsequent periods. Hence interest is compounded. The greater the number of periods and the more times a period interest is paid, the greater the compounding and future value.

3. The answer here will vary according to the individual. Common answers include a savings account and a mortgage loan.

4. An annuity is a series of cash receipts of the same amount over a period of time. It is worth less than a lump sum equal to the sum of the annuities to be received because of the time value of money.

5. Interest compounded continuously. It will result in the highest terminal value possible for a given nominal rate of interest.

6. In calculating the future (terminal) value, we need to know the beginning amount, the interest rate, and the number of periods. In calculating the present value, we need to know the future value or cash-flow, the interest or discount rate, and the number of periods. Thus, there is only a switch of two of the four variables.

7. They facilitate calculations by being able to multiply the cash-flow by the appropriate discount factor. Otherwise, it is necessary to raise 1 plus the discount rate to the nth power and divide. Prior to electronic calculators, the latter was quite laborious. With the advent of calculators, it is much easier and the advantage of present value tables is lessened.

8. Interest compounded as few times as possible during the five years. Realistically, it is likely to be at least annually. Compounding more times will result in a lower present value.

9. For interest rates likely to be encountered in normal business situations the ‘‘Rule of 72’’ is a pretty accurate money doubling rule. Since it is easy to remember and involves a calculation that can be done in your head, it has proven useful.

10. Decreases at a decreasing rate. The present value equation, 1/(1 +i)n, is such that as you divide 1 by increasing (linearly) amounts of i, present value decreases towards zero, but at a decreasing rate.

11. Decreases at a decreasing rate. The denominator of the present value equation increases at an increasing rate with n. Therefore, present value decreases at a decreasing rate.

12. A lot. Turning to FVIF Table 3.3 in the chapter and tracing down the 3 percent column to 25 years, we see that he will increase his weight by a factor of 2.09 on a compound basis. This translates into a weight of about 418 pounds at age 60.

3. $25,000 = R(PVIFA6%,12) = R(8.384)

R = $25,000/8.384 = $2,982

4. $50,000 = R(FVIFA8%,10) = R(14.486)

R = $50,000/14.486 = $3,452

5. $50,000 = R(FVIFA8%,10)(1 + 0.08) = R(15.645)

R = $50,000/15.645 = $3,196

6. $10,000 = $16,000(PVIFx%,3)

(PVIFx%, 3) = $10,000/$16,000 = 0.625

Going to the PVIF table at the back of the book and looking across the row for n = 3, we find that the discount factor for 17 percent is 0.624 and that is closest to the number above.

7. $10,000 = $3,000(PVIFAx%,4)(PVIFAx%,4) = $10,200/$3,000 = 3.4 Going to the PVIFA table at the back of the book and looking across the row for n = 4, we find that the discount factor for 6 percent is 3.465, while for 7 percent it is 3.387. Therefore, the note has an implied interest rate of almost 7 percent.

10. Amount Present Value Interest Factor Present Value

$1,000 1/(1 + .10)10 = 0.386 $386

1,000 1/(1 + .025)40 = 0.372 372

1,000 1/e(.10)(10) = 0.368 368

11. $1,000,000 = $1,000(1 + x%)100

(1 + x%)100 = $1,000,000/$1,000 = 1,000

Taking the square root of both sides of the above equation gives

(1 + x%)50 = (FVIFAx%, 50) = 31.623

Going to the FVIF table at the back of the book and looking across the row for n = 50, we find that the interest factor for 7 percent is 29.457, while for 8 percent it is 46.901. Therefore, the implicit interest rate is slightly more than 7 percent.

12. a. Annuity of $10,000 per year for 15 years at 5 percent. The discount factor in the PVIFA table at the end of the book is 10.380.

Purchase price = $10,000 × 10.380 = $103,800

b. Discount factor for 10 percent for 15 years is 7.606

Purchase price = $10,000 × 7.606 = $76,060

As the insurance company is able to earn more on the amount put up, it requires a lower purchase price.

c. Annual annuity payment for 5 percent = $30,000/10.380 = $2,890

Annual annuity payment for 10 percent = $30,000/7.606 = $3,944

The higher the interest rate embodied in the yield calculations, the higher the annual payments.

13. $190,000 = R(PVIFA17%, 20) = R(5.628)

R = $190,000/5.628 = $33,760

14. a. PV0 = $8,000 = R(PVIFA1%,36)

= R[(1 – [1/(1 + .01)36])/(0.01)] = R(30.108)

Therefore, R = $8,000/30.108 = $265.71
