Unformatted text preview: ROE = (PM)(TAT)(EM) ROE = (.048)(1.25)(1 + 1.86) ROE = .1714 or 17.14% Now we can calculate the retention ratio as: b = 1 .30 b = .70 Finally, putting all the numbers we have calculated into the sustainable growth rate equation, we get: Sustainable growth rate = (ROE b) / [1 (ROE b)] Sustainable growth rate = [.1714(.70)] / [1 .1714(.70)] Sustainable growth rate = .1364 or 13.64% 22. To calculate the sustainable growth rate, we first must calculate the retention ratio and ROE. The retention ratio is: b = 1 $9,300 / $17,500 b = .4686 And the ROE is: ROE = $17,500 / $58,000 ROE = .3017 or 30.17% So, the sustainable growth rate is: Sustainable growth rate = (ROE b) / [1 (ROE b)] Sustainable growth rate = [.3017(.4686)] / [1 .3017(.4686)] Sustainable growth rate = .1647 or 16.47% If the company grows at the sustainable growth rate, the new level of total assets is: New TA = 1.1647($86,000 + 58,000) = $167,710.84 To find the new level of debt in the companys balance sheet, we take the percentage of debt in...
