1. Mrs Marta is a financial executive with XYZ Enterprises. Although Mrs Msrts has not had any formal training in finance or accounting, she has a “good sense” for numbers and has helped the company grow from a very small company ($500,000 sales) to a large operation ($45 million in sales). With the business growing steadily, however, the company needs to make a number of difficult financial decisions in which Marta feels a little “over his head.” She therefore has decided to hire a new employee with “numbers” expertise to help her. As a basis for determining whom to employ, she has decided to ask each prospective employee to prepare answers to questions relating to the following situations she has encountered recently. Here are the questions. </o:p>

a. In 2009, XYZ Enterprises negotiated and closed a long-term lease contract for newly constructed truck terminals and freight storage facilities. The buildings were constructed on land owned by the company. On January 1, 2010, XYZ took possession of the leased property. 20-year lease is effective for the period January 1, 2010, through December 31, 2029. Advance rental payments of $800,000 are payable to the lessor (owner of facilities) on January 1 of each of the first 10 years of the lease term. Advance payments of $400,000 are due on January 1 for each of the last 10 years of the lease term. XYZ has an option to purchase all the leased facilities for $1 on December 31, 2029. At the time the lease was negotiated, the fair market value of the truck terminals and freight storage facilities was approximately $7,200,000. If the company had borrowed the money to purchase the facilities, it would have had to pay 10% interest. Should the company have purchased rather than leased the facilities?</o:p>

b. Last year the company exchanged a piece of land for a non-interest-bearing note. The note is to be paid at the rate of $15,000 per year for 9 years, beginning one year from the date of disposal of the land. An appropriate rate of interest for the note was 11%. At the time the land was originally purchased, it cost $90,000. What is the fair value (Present value) of the note?</o:p>
