Ans 1) NOPAT = net operating income * (1-tax rate)

= (7500 - 6000) * (1 - .4)

= 1500 *.6

= \$900

ans 2) Net opeating working capital = operating current asset - operating current liabilities

for 2016 = 2211 - 1059

= \$1152

for 2015 = 1902 - 840 = \$1062

Ans 3) Net operating capital = Net operating working capital + non current operating asset

for 2016 = 1152 + 2250 = \$3402

for 2015 = 1062 + 1800 = \$2862

ans 4) Free cash flow = EBIT * (1 - tax rate) + dep/amort - change in working capital - capital expenditure

= 1275*.6 + 225 - (1152 -1062) - (2250 -1800)

= \$450
