Analysis of Property, Plant and Equipment

Difficulty: Advanced


Property, Plant and Equipment Accounting Policy

Emerson records investments in land, buildings, and machinery and equipment at cost. Depreciation is computed principally using the straight-line method over estimated service lives, which for principal assets are 30 to 40 years for buildings and 8 to 12 years for machinery and equipment. Long-lived tangible assets are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in business circumstances indicate the carrying value of the assets may not be recoverable. Impairment losses are recognized based on estimated fair values if the sum of estimated future undiscounted cash flows of the related assets is less than the carrying values.

Ratio Description The company
Average age As long as straight-line depreciation is used, this is an accurate estimate of asset age as a percentage of depreciable life. The relative age is a useful measure of whether the company's fixed asset base is old or new. Newer assets are likely to be more efficient. Emerson Electric Co.'s average age of depreciable property, plant and equipment deteriorated from 2015 to 2016 but then improved from 2016 to 2017 exceeding 2015 level.
Estimated total useful life Over longer time periods, this ratio is a useful measure of company's depreciation policy and can be used for comparisons with competitors. Emerson Electric Co.'s estimated total useful life of depreciable property, plant and equipment increased from 2015 to 2016 and from 2016 to 2017.
Estimated time elapsed since purchase The approximate age in years of a company's fixed assets. Useful for comparison purposes. Emerson Electric Co.'s estimated time elapsed since purchase of depreciable property, plant and equipment deteriorated from 2015 to 2016 but then slightly improved from 2016 to 2017.
Estimated remaining life Emerson Electric Co.'s estimated remaining life of depreciable property, plant and equipment increased from 2015 to 2016 and from 2016 to 2017.
