In addition, the firm has \$600,000 invested in fixed assets. a. Lear wishes to finance all fixed assets and half of its permanent current assets with long-term financing costing 10 percent. Short-term financing currently costs 5 percent. Lear’s earnings before interest and taxes are \$200,000. Determine Lear’s earnings after taxes under this financing plan. The tax rate is 30 percent. Current assets – permanent current assets = temporary current assets \$800,000 – \$350,000 = \$450,000 Short-term interest expense = 5% [\$450,000 + ½ (\$350,000)] = 5% (\$625,000) = \$31,250 Long-term interest expense = 10% [\$600,000 + ½ (\$350,000)] = 10% (\$775,000) = \$77,500 Total interest expense = \$31,250 + \$77,500 = \$108,750 Earnings before interest and taxes \$200,000 Interest expense 108,750 Earnings before taxes \$ 91,250 Taxes (30%) 27,375 Earnings after taxes \$ 63,875 b.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
