W01 Solution 1 1. (8 marks) Jundel Inc. plans $400,000 in capital outlays for next year. The firm has a .25 D/E ratio, and uses a residual dividend policy. Earnings per share for the upcoming period are expected to be $3.50. There are 200,000 shares. What is the firm’s expected dividend per share for the upcoming year? Step 1 - Calculate the amount of new equity (i.e., retained earnings) needed for next year. Total Capital = D + RE = $400,000 D = .25 RE Therefore, .25RE + RE = $400,000 RE = $400,000/1.25 = $320,000 Step 2 - Calculate the amount of the total dividend Total Dividend = Total Earnings - Total Retained Earnings Total Dividend = (200,000*$3.40) - $320,000 = $360,000 Step 3 - Calculate the Dividend per share Dividend per share = Total Dividend / Number of shares = $360,000 / 200,000 = $1.80 per share 2.
