    I wonder why the FCFE in 2005 is $87.2M which is just deducted the capital expenditure. Per the Kaplan text (P174), it should also be deducted the repayment of loan ($31M) and added the disposal of the JV($10M). Also further how about the deposit of $35.5M? Could you help me to clear this problem?

    The reason is that they are trying to forecast the FCFE for 2006 onwards.
    Although they did repay a loan in 2005 and also dispose of the JV, these are not things that will be repeated in the future. (Similarly the change in short-term deposits)
