Ron Nord and Lisa Smith are examining the following statement

Ron Nord and Lisa Smith are examining the following statement of cash flows for Carpino Company for the year ended January 31, 2012.

                        

Ron claims that Carpino’s statement of cash flows is an excellent portrayal of a superb first year with cash increasing $105,000. Lisa replies that it was not a superb first year. Rather, she says, the year was an operating failure, that the statement is presented incorrectly, and that $105,000 is not the actual increase in cash. The cash balance at the beginning of the year was $140,000.
