The financial statements of P&G are presented in Appendix 5B. The company's complete annual report, including the notes to the financial statements, can be accessed at the book's companion website, www.
Refer to P&G's 2011 financial statements and the accompanying notes to answer the following questions.
(a) What cash outflow obligations related to the repayment of long-term debt does P&G have over the next 5 years?
Due from July 2011 to June 30 2016.
$13501 millions

(b) P&G indicates that it believes that it has the ability to meet business requirements in the foreseeable future. Prepare an assessment of its liquidity, solvency, and financial flexibility using ratio analysis.
2011 2010
Current Ratio 0.80 0.77
Debt Equity Ratio 1.03 1.09
Times Interest Earned Ratio 19.03 16.94
Return on Equity 17.35% 20.73%
Return on Assets 8.53% 9.94%
Operating Cash flows $ 13,231 $ 16,072
Free Cash Flow $ 9,749 $ 15,475
The liquidity and solvency position have improved slightly in 2011, as the current ratio only increase by .03 and debt equity ratio decreased by .06, however the times interest earned has increased by around 2%, it shows that the company has more earnings to pay interest in 2011 as compared to 2010. The decline in return on equity and return on assets suggests that resources of the company have not been utilized effectively. Moreover the financial condition has also weakened in 2011 as the cash generated from operating cash flows and the free cash flows has declined in 2011 as compared to 2011.


Comparative Analysis Case The Coca-Cola Company and PepsiCo, Inc.
Go to the book's companion website and use information found there to answer the following questions related to The Coca-Cola Company and PepsiCo, Inc.

(a) Compute the debt to assets and the times interest earned ratios for these two companies. Comment on the quality of these two ratios for both Coca-Cola and PepsiCo

Total Liabiliteis 48050 51983
Total Assets 79971 72882
Debt to total assets 0.60 0.71

The Pepsi has used more debt financing as compared to Coke. Around 71% of total assets have been financed by debt for PEPSI and around 60% by Coke. The PEPSI is more exposed to financial risk as compared to COKE>
(b) . (b) What is the difference between the fair value and the historical cost (carrying amount) of each com-
pany's debt at year-end 2011? Why might a difference exist in these two amounts?
For PEPSI the fair value was lower than historical cost and it was around $830 million due to interest rate swapping. For Coke the fair value was more than historical cost and it was around $663 million due to adjustment for company debt equivalent to other companies debt of similar nature.
(c) Both companies have debt issued in foreign countries. Speculate as to why these companies may use foreign debt to finance their operations. What risks are involved in this strategy, and how might they
adjust for this risk?

The cost of acquiring debt might be lower in foreign countries therefore the company would have issued debt in foreign counties. But there is risk of foreign exchange rate fluctuation which may have impact on the cost of financing abroad which may be mitigated by forward booking of foreign exchange rate or by using hedging technique.
