Advanced financial management | Accounting homework help

1. What are the theories, models and implementation in financial management and how the theories will help in practice?

2. Malaysian Airlines Bhd (MAS) is considering a proposal to buy two new passenger aircrafts in order to increase their service capacity. The aircrafts that are being considered are from model Airbus MH370. The price for each aircraft is RM279, 000,000. Generally, it takes two years for Airbus to construct each MH370 aircraft ordered.

The buying process requires MAS to pay down payment, which is 35% of the total aircraft price upon placing the order. The remaining 65% will be paid once the construction process has completed, before the delivery could take place. This is scheduled to be two years from the date where the order is placed. Below is the general information for one Airbus MH370 aircraft:

MAS Airlines Bhd.

Accounting & Financial Department

Aircraft Model – Airbus MH370


Maintenance cost RM5,760,000 per year

All costs are projected to increase by 2% per annum throughout the project’s life.


 Pilot RM240,000 per year

 Air crews RM240,000 per year

Fuel cost RM16,000,000 per year

Insurance RM9,600,000 per year

Aircrafts will be depreciated using simplified straight line depreciation method down to zero.

Each aircraft has 10 years economic life.

Each aircraft is expected to be able to increase MAS’s revenues by RM72, 900,000 during the first year of its operation. The revenue then is projected to increase by 4% per annum throughout the project’s life. Since the aircrafts is the latest model in its class, the company will need to train their pilots and air crews on the aircrafts’ operational aspect. The training which will cost the company RM250, 000 will be conducted in Airbus Training Facility in France only if the aircrafts are purchased.

MAS will finance RM300, 000,000 from the total aircraft price through a loan from one of the local banks at 8.4% per annum. At the end of the project’s life, each of the aircrafts is expected to be sold as used aircraft at prices tabulated as below:






Aircraft Price (RM)

The rental costs for each hangar is RM200, 000 a year. The hangar rental costs will be revised every two years. Based on the discussions with MAB, the hangar rental costs are likely to increase by 2% every time the revision is made.
