An accounting entry was required on the balance sheet transferring some retained earnings to the common stock account. If retained earnings was $280 million prior to the transaction, what was the dollar amount of retained earnings after the transfer? a. $280.0 million b. $110.4 million c. $234.0 million d. $277.6 million e. $169.6 million Register to View AnswerAmount of transfer: 16,000,000 shares 0.15 $46.00 = $ 110,400,000.

The following facts apply to your company: Target capital structure: 50% debt; 50% equity. EBIT: $200 million. Assets: $500 million. Tax rate: 40%. Cost of new and old debt: 8%. Based on the residual dividend policy, the payout ratio is 60 percent. How large (in millions of dollars) will the capital budget be? a. $43.2 b. $50.0 c. $64.8 d. $86.4 e. $108.0 Register to View AnswerWe are dealing with a situation like this: 28 Chapter10DividendPolicy Debt = 0.5(Assets) = 0.5 ($500) = $250 million. Interest = 0.08($250) = $20 million. EBT NI = EBIT - I = $200 - $20 = $180. = $180 - Taxes = $180 - $180(0.4) = 0.6($180) = $180 million. Dividends = $108(0.6) = $64.80 million. Retained earnings = NI - D = $108.00 - $64.80 = $43.20 million. Half of the capital budget will be debt. Half common equity from retained earnings, so the capital budget will be: Capital budget = DIF: Medium = $86.40 million. OBJ: TYPE: Problem TOP: Residual dividend and capital budget 23. Flavortech Inc. expects EBIT of $2,000,000 for the coming year. The firm's capital structure consists of 40 percent debt and 60 percent equity, and its marginal tax rate is 40 percent.

In its next capital budgeting cycle, the firm expects to fund one large positive NPV project costing $1,200,000, and it will fund this project in accordance with its target capital structure. If the firm follows a residual dividend policy and has no other projects, what is its expected dividend payout ratio? a. 100% b. 60% c. 40% d. 20% e. 0% Register to View AnswerDividend payout ratio EBIT Interest EBT Taxes NI Project funding Residual earnings payable as dividends $2,000,000 (500,000) $1,500,000 (600,000) $ 900,000 (720,000) $ 180,000 ($5,000,000 10%) ($1,500,000 40%) Dividend payout ratio = $180,000/$900,000 = 20%.

Makeover plans to repurchase 2.4 million of its 20 million shares outstanding. The firm's managers expect that they can repurchase the entire 2.4 million shares at the expected equilibrium price after repurchase. The firm's current earnings are $44 million. If management's assumptions hold, what is the expected market price after repurchase? a. $16.00 b. $17.26 c. $18.18 d. $20.00 e. $24.40 Register to View AnswerStep 1: Current EPS = $44 million/20 million = $2.20 per share. Step 2: Step 3: Step 4: P/E ratio = $16.00/$2.20 = 7.27x. EPS after repurchase = $44 million/17.6 million = $2.50. Expected market price after repurchase: 7.27 $2.50 = $18.175 = $18.18 per share.
