Question details

The Heinrich Tire Company recalled a tire in its subcompact line in December 2018. Costs associated with the recall were originally thought to approximate $55 million. Now, though, while management feels it is probable the company will incur substantial costs, all discussions indicate that $55 million is an excessive amount. Based on prior recalls in the industry, management has provided the following probability distribution for the potential loss: (FV of $1, PV of $1, FVA of $1, PVA of $1, FVAD of $1 and PVAD of $1) (Use appropriate factor(s) from the tables provided.)
