Problem 3.5 from pg 114 ? Chapter 3
? Brandywine Homecare, a not-for-profit business, had revenues of $12 million in 2015. Expenses other than depreciation totaled 75% of revenues, and depreciation expense was $1.5 million. All revenues were collected in cash during the year, and all expenses other than depreciation were paid in cash.
o Construct Brandywine?s 2015 income statement.
o What were Brandywine?s net income, total profit margin and cash flow?
o Now, suppose the company changed its depreciation calculation procedures (still within GAAP) such that its depreciation expense doubled. How would this change affect Brandywine?s net income, total profit margin and cash flow?
o Suppose the change had halved, rather than doubled, the firm?s depreciation expense. Now, what would be the impact on net income, total profit margin and cash flow?

The Global Harmonization System (GHS) is a unified international system for the classification and labeling of chemicals, designed by the United Nations. It was adopted by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) in 2008 for use on the MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet). The following link to the OSHA (n.d.) website details information on GHS and is provided for further reference https://www.osha.gov/dsg/hazcom/ghs.html#1.1.

National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) System of Identifying Potential Hazards: NFPA uses a hazard diamond shaped figure divided into four color-coded quadrants for rapid identification of hazards:

? Hazards: health, flammability, chemical reactivity
? Severity: 0 to 4
