CFA Practice Question

Assume a 30% tax rate. If the depreciation amount increases by $100, this period's FCFF will ______.

A. not change
B. increase by $30
C. increase by $70
D. increase by $100
Correct Answer: B

Net income will decrease by $70 (30% tax shield), and NCC will increase by $100. As FCFF = NI + NCC + Int (1 - Tax rate) - FCInv - WCInv, the net effect is that FCFF will increase by $30.
