TRY FIRM A WITH DEBT TO ASSETS = 25% AND ROA = 12% AND FIRM B WITH DEBT TO ASSETS = 75% AND ROA = 12% SEE WHAT HAPPENS!! THIS SI AN EXAMPLE OF A FIRM WITH HIGH LEVERAGE (use of debt) AND I TO EARN HIGH RETURNS, BUT THERE IS ALWAYS A CATCH. THE FIRM MUS PAY OFF THE HIGH INTEREST THAT GOES WITH THIS HIGH LEVEL OF DEBT FACE BANKRUPTCY. HIGH DEBT MEAN HIGH RISK, SO THE FIRM MUST MA HIGH RETURNS TO COMPENSATE FOR THE HIGH RISK. HERE I HAVE ADDED A REFERENCE TO THE CALCULATIONS BELOW SO THE ANSWER YOU WILL NEED FOR QUIZ IS RIGHT UNDER THE QUESTION.

Assets / Sales = 81.58% = Total Assets / Sales Δ Sales = $ Change in Sales = $6,080,000 = % Sales Increase x Sales Debt / Sales = 21.05% = Short-term Liabilities / Sales PM = Profit Margin = 7.87% = Net Income / Sales Projected Sales = $36,480,000 = Sales + $ Change in Sales (1 - d) = Plowback Ratio = 60.00% = 1 - Dividend payout ratio EFN = $1,957,760 = [ (Assets/Sales) x $ Change in Sales ] − [ (Short-term Liabilities / Sales) x $

ROE = 0.1758823529 = Net Income / Total Equity b = Plowback Ratio = 60.00% = 1 - Dividend payout ratio SUSTAINABLE GROWTH RATE = 11.80% = (ROE x Plowback Ratio) / (1 - (ROE x Plowback Ratio)) Can Optical Scam eliminate the need for external funds by changing its dividend policy?
