Brandywine Homecare, a non-profit organization, made \$12 million in revenue in 2011. Expenses other than depreciation accounted for 75% of revenues, with depreciation expense totaling \$1.5 million. During the fiscal year, all revenues were collected in cash, and all expenses, with the exception of depreciation, were paid in cash.

a) Create Brandywine’s income statement for 2011.

b) What was Brandywine’s net income, profit margin, and cash flow?

c) Assume the company changed its depreciation calculation procedures (while remaining within GAAP), causing its depreciation expense to double. What effect would this modification have on Brandywine’s net income, total profit margin, and cash flow?

d) Assume the change reduced the firm’s depreciation expense by half rather than doubling it. What effect would this have on net income, total profit margin, and cash flow?
