So, the equity at the end of the year was: Ending equity = $135,000 + 16,500 Ending equity = $151,500 The ROE based on the end of period equity is: ROE = $19,000 / $151,500 ROE = .1254 or 12.54% The plowback ratio is: Plowback ratio = Addition to retained earnings/NI Plowback ratio = $16,500 / $19,000 Plowback ratio = .8684 or 86.84% Using the equation presented in the text for the sustainable growth rate, we get: Sustainable growth rate = (ROE × b) / [1 – (ROE × b)] Sustainable growth rate = [.1254(.8684)] / [1 – .1254(.8684)] Sustainable growth rate = .1222 or 12.22% The ROE based on the beginning of period equity is ROE = $16,500 / $135,000 ROE = .1407 or 14.07% Using the shortened equation for the sustainable growth rate and the beginning of period ROE, we get: Sustainable growth rate = ROE × b Sustainable growth rate = .1407 × .8684 Sustainable growth rate = .1222 or 12.22% Using the shortened equation for the sustainable growth rate and the end of period ROE, we get: Sustainable growth rate = ROE × b
