The company's target capital structure is 60 percent equity and 40 percent debt; it has 1,000,000 shares of common equity outstanding; and its net income is $8 million. The company forecasts that it will require $10 million to fund all of its profitable (that is, positive NPV) projects for the upcoming year. a.

If Buena Terra follows the residual dividend model, what will be the company's dividend per share and payout ratio for the upcoming year? Dividend per share = (Net Income Required RE) / Shares outstanding Dividend per share = $8,000,000 $6,000,000 / 1,000,000 Dividend per share = $2.00 So, following the residual policy would require a dividend cut.
