3. ## CFA Exam Test Centers in India for June 2011

Dear CFA Candidates,

The CFA Institute has confirmed that the Delhi High Court has given them permission to hold the CFA exam in India on Sunday, 05 June 2011. This is a good news for many Indian students who were planning to fly to Kathmandu, Bangkok etc.

All test centers have limited seats, and test center change requests are granted on a first-come, first-served basis. So it is better that you send the request soon.

Regards,
Team DG

Today's Question (Questions and answers provided by Knowledge Varsity)

Q#1: A firm had net sales of \$2000 in year 2001 but due to bad economic environment the net sales in 2005 was \$1500. What is the compounded annual growth rate in sales for this firm

A. -6.94%
B. 0.93%
C. -6.25%
================================================== ===================================

6. FV = PV*(1+r)^n
\$1500 = \$2000*(1+r)^4
r = -0.069395

So my guess would be A

7. Q # 1

Using Texas Bii Plus Calculator

PV = -2000
FV = 1500
N = 4
PYMT = 0

CMPT I = -6.94

hav calculated with my normal calculator ~_~
-6.93%

9. Q1. Ans A

The compounded annual growth rate can be computed by
:
(1+ CAGR)#of Years = (Final Sales / Initial Sales)

The number of years will be 4 years (from 2001 to 2005).

Plugging in the values will result in a CAGR = (1500/2000)1/4 -1 = -6.94%

Alternatively, the problem can be solved using a calculator.
Keep FV = -1500, PV = 2000, PMT = 0 ; N = 4; CPT -> I/Y => I/Y = -6.94%
