Profits are $10 per unit greater than for each level of sales volume. (d) 4-6 Common Preferred Debt EBIT $ 125,000 $ 125,000 $ 125,000 Interest 6,000 Profit before taxes $ 125,000 $125,000 $ 119,000 Taxes at 48% 60,000 60,000 57,120 Profit after taxes $ 65,000 $ 65,000 $ 61,880 Preferred dividends 7,000 Earnings available to shareholders $ 65,000 $ 58,000 $ 61,880 Shares outstanding ÷ 12,000 ÷ 10,000 ÷ 10,000 EPS $ 5.41 $ 5.80 $ 6.19 The indifference EBIT point is computed as follows: Debt Alternative Stock Alternative EBIT = $36,000 Preferred Stock Alternative Stock Alternative EBIT = $80,769 The EPS indifference point is $36,000 in EBIT for the debt and common stock alternatives: below that level of EBIT the common stock alternative will produce higher EPS and above that level of EBIT the debt alternative will produce higher EPS. The EPS indifference point is $80,769 in EBIT for the preferred stock and common stock alternative: below that point the common stock alternative will result in higher EPS and above that point the preferred stock alternative will produce higher EPS. If operating profits (EBIT) are indeed $125,000, the debt alternative is the best option. 4-7 (a) (b) (c) 4-8 (a) Average price per unit = ($12 + $8)/2 = $10 Average variable cost per unit = ($6 + $4)/2 = $5 Weighted average price per unit = $10.40 Weighted average variable cost per unit = $5.20 The sales volume for Product A is 9,231 (15,385 x 3/5) units and the sales volume for Project B is 6,154 (15,385 x F 1.
