The Reynolds Corporation buys from its suppliers on terms of 3/17, net 45. Reynolds has not been utilizing the discounts offered and has been taking 45 days to pay its bills.
Mr. Duke, Vice President of Reynolds Corporation, has suggested that the company begin to take the discounts offered. Duke proposes that the company borrow from its bank at a stated rate of 16 percent. The bank requires a 20 percent compensating balance on these loans. Current account balances would not be available to meet any of this compensating balance requirement.
Do you agree with Duke’s proposal?
