CHAPTER 4 B-33 The payout ratio is 40 percent, so dividends will be: Dividends = 0.40($683.10) Dividends = $273.24 The addition to retained earnings is: Addition to retained earnings = $683.10 – 273.24 Addition to retained earnings = $409.86 So the EFN is: EFN = Total assets – Total liabilities and equity EFN = $13,225 – 12,224.86 EFN = $1,000.14 6. To calculate the internal growth rate, we first need to calculate the ROA, which is: ROA = NI / TA ROA = $2,262 / $39,150 ROA = .0578 or 5.78% The plowback ratio, b, is one minus the payout ratio, so: b = 1 – .30 b = .70 Now we can use the internal growth rate equation to get: Internal growth rate = (ROA × b) / [1 – (ROA × b)] Internal growth rate = [0.0578(.70)] / [1 – 0.0578(.70)] Internal growth rate = .0421 or 4.21% 7. To calculate the sustainable growth rate, we first need to calculate the ROE, which is: ROE = NI / TE ROE = $2,262 / $21,650 ROE = .1045 or 10.45% The plowback ratio, b, is one minus the payout ratio, so: b = 1 – .30 b = .70 Now we can use the sustainable growth rate equation to get: Sustainable growth rate = (ROE × b) / [1 – (ROE × b)] Sustainable growth rate = [0.1045(.70)] / [1 – 0.1045(.70)] Sustainable growth rate = .0789 or 7.89%
