Shah Ophthalmology Center 12/17/2013
Lee Shah, a board certified ophthalmologist, has been successful in private practice for 15 years. In 2012 he met Ann Casey, a newly minted ophthalmologist, and agreed to employ her in his practice. (See contract terms below.) As a result Dr. Shah reorganized his practice as a new limited liability corporation, beginning with 2012.
Attachment One (excel Spreadsheet) is the Income/Expense statement for the first year of the newly organized medical practice. Dr. Shah now wants to replace some of the aging medical equipments in the facility and add examining room equipments to accommodate Dr. Casey. These purchases will cost $450,000. He will have to borrow $390,000 to enact this renovation and wants to create a series of pro forma income/expense statements for the next three years to accompany his loan application.

and accounts payable needs. The contract service charges the practice at the rate
of 3.8% of gross income and requires a 0.45% annual increase beginning in 2013.

beginning in 2014, the annual insurance expense will be $55,000/year.

a) Upload the file to Blackboard.
In order to distinguish between the work of different students, the following guidelines should be adhered to:
i. Name the .xls or .xlsx (Excel) workbook: Excel_LastName_FirstName
a. Rounding numbers to whole integers will make the spreadsheets easier to read
b. You should use formulas for the projections NOT hard numbers, so Dr. Shah can easily manipulate the spreadsheet in playing “what if” exercises on business expectations
