The 2013 financial statements for Royale and Cavalier companies are summarized here:

These two companies are in the same business and state but different cities. One-half of
Royale’s sales and one-quarter of Cavalier’s sales are on credit. Each company has been in operation for about 10 years. Both companies received an unqualified audit opinion on the financial statements. Royale Company wants to borrow $75,000 cash, and Cavalier Company is asking for $30,000. The loans will be for a two-year period. Both companies estimate bad debts based on an aging analysis, but Cavalier has estimated slightly higher uncollectible rates than Royale.
