Answers to End–of–Chapter Problems B– 14 Chapter 3: Financial Planning and Growth 3.2 a. First, we need to calculate the current sales and change in sales. The current sales are next year’s sales divided by one plus the growth rate, so: Current sales = Next year’s sales / (1 + g ) Current sales = \$440,000,000 / (1 + .10) Current sales = \$400,000,000 And the change in sales is: Change in sales = \$440,000,000 – 400,000,000 Change in sales = \$40,000,000 We can now complete the current balance sheet. The current assets, fixed assets, and short– term debt are calculated as a percentage of current sales. The long–term debt and par value of stock are given. The plug variable is the additions to retained earnings. So: Assets Liabilities Current Assets \$80,000,000 Short–term debt \$60,000,000 Long–term debt 145,000,000 Fixed Assets 560,000,000 Common stock 50,000,000 Retained earnings 385,000,000 Total equity \$435,000,000 Total Assets \$640,000,000 Total liabilities and equity \$640,000,000 b. We can use the equation from the text to answer this question. The assets/sales and debt/sales are the percentages given in the problem, so: ( )( ) Assets Debt EFN Sales Sales ProfitMargin Sales 1- DvdPayout Sales Sales ! " ! " = # \$ # \$ % & % & ( ( EFN = (.20 + 1.40) × \$40,000,000 – (.15 × \$40,000,000) – [(.12 × \$440,000,000) × (1 – .40)] EFN = \$26,320,000 c. The current assets, fixed assets, and short–term debt will all increase at the same percentage as sales. The long–term debt and common stock will remain constant. The accumulated retained earnings will increase by the addition to retained earnings for the year. We can calculate the addition to retained earnings for the year as: Net income = Profit margin × Sales Net income = .12 x \$440,000,000 Net income = \$52,800,000

Answers to End–of–Chapter Problems B– 15 The addition to retained earnings for the year will be the net income times one minus the dividend payout ratio, which is: Addition to retained earnings = Net income(1 – d) Addition to retained earnings = \$52,800,000(1 – .40) Addition to retained earnings = \$31,680,000

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.
