Multiple Choice

The New Products division yielded ROI that was lower than the target ROI.

Residual income for the New Products division was \$832,000.

The New Products division yielded no residual income.

All of these are correct.

• All working forms part of the answer
• Working:
 A Operating Income \$          8,000,000.00 B Operating Assets \$        44,800,000.00 C = (A/B) x 100 Actual ROI 17.9% D [given] Target ROI 16% E = B x D Target Income \$          7,168,000.00 F = A - E Residual Income \$              832,000.00

• Above working shows that:

>Actual ROI is MORE than Target ROI of 16% [not “LESS than” as given in Option #1]

>Residual Income = \$ 832,000

• Hence, the correct answer is Option #2: Residual income for the New Products division was \$832,000
