Diane Hollowell and Terry Parmenter were discussing the format of the statement of cash flows of Snowbarger Co. At the bottom of Snowbarger's statement of cash flows was a separate section entitled “Noncash investing and financing activities.” Give three examples of significant noncash transactions that would be reported in this section.
The net present value (NPV) of each option has been calculated and included in Table 1, based on figures from the study group report. Unfortunately, these figures are flawed in the same manner as Wriston’s current performance and accounting mechanisms in that they don’t properly allocate revenue, nor do they recognize inherent manufacturing complexities. The plant closure option’s expected operational gain seems particularly suspect. A better valuation of the new plant options is perhaps

Lowe’s is targeting the customers who are interesting shopping for big-ticket appliances and high-margin home furnishings at its urban stores. Lowe's is pushing hard for growth to make up for lost time. The top home-improvement chain until the late 1980s, it was knocked off its perch as Home Depot embraced "big-box" retailing, while Lowe's clung to its small-town stores. Robert Tillman, 58, who has worked at Lowe's for 39 years, became CEO in 1996. A year later, fearful that Lowe's would forever lose out to Home Depot, Tillman began to open a handful of larger stores in metro areas. Now, Lowe's is accelerating that rollout just as Home Depot, which has saturated the largest markets, slows its expansion in order to squeeze more sales out of existing stores. To finance its expansion, Lowe's has added $2 billion in long-term debt during the past two years. In recent years, Lowe's earnings gains have outpaced its big rival's. In the first quarter of 2002, same-store sales at Home Depot rose 5%. But Lowe's, which opened 46 stores in the quarter, did even better: Its same-store sales climbed 7.5%. Lowe's profits jumped 54%, to $346 million, in the quarter. Home Depot failed to keep pace, as profits rose only 35%, to $856 million. The difference between a Lowe's store and a Home Depot has been fairly clear-cut up to now. Presentation counts at Lowe's.
