  3. are essentially only one transaction that is shown on the free cash flow statement
  4. None of the above answers are correct.

  1. To create a free cash flow statement from GAAP information, the analyst should:
  1. reorganize the line items in the combined GAAP income and cash flow statements into the categories of free cash flow, nonoperating cash flow, and capital cash flow
  2. discount the line items in the combined GAAP income and cash flow statements to their present values
  3. convert GAAP cash flow from operations to free cash flow by adjusting the components of debt and other capital elements out of the GAAP cash flow from operations
  4. convert GAAP cash flow from investing activities to free cash flow by adjusting the cash flows to their net present value based on the current cost of capital for the firm

a.   the capital expenditure will be understated by the amount that the machine was paid for with debt

b.   the cash balance from core operations will be understated and the analyst would have an erroneous forecast

c.   the addback for depreciation expense will be unaffected

d.   the income tax expense will be unaffected

  1. To construct a free cash flow statement, the analyst must:
  1. only use and rely on the GAAP statement of cash flows when preparing the free cash flow statement
  2. determine how an item was treated under GAAP and how it should be treated in the free cash flow statement
  3. realize that in reorganizing and adjusting the total cash flow, the net cash flow from free cash flow statement will not equal the net cash flow from the GAAP cash flow statement
  4. disregard the GAAP cash flow categories of operating, investing, and financing when preparing the free cash flow statement
