Read the minicase 'Planning for Growth at S&S Air' on pages 117-118 of your text; click HERE for the Excel template which you will use to prepare this assignment. 1. Calculate the a) internal growth rate and b) sustainable growth rate for S&S Air; c) what do these numbers mean? 2. S&S Air is planning for a growth rate of 12% next year. Calculate the EFN for the company assuming that the company is operating at full capacity. Can the company's sales increase at this growth rate? 3. Most assets can be increased as a percentage of sales. For instance, cash can be increased by any amount. However, fixed assets must be increased in specific amounts because it is impossible, as a practical matter, to buy part of a new plant or machine. In this case, a company has a 'staircase' or 'lumpy' fixed cost structure. Assume S&S Air is currently producing at 100% capacity. As a result, to increase production, the company must set up an entirely new line at a cost of \$5,000,000. a. Calculate the new EFN with this assumption.
