Build a Model Problem 11/26/18

Chapter: 12

Problem: 10

Start with the partial model in the file Ch12 P10 Build a Model.xlsx on the textbook's Web site, which contains the 2019 financial statements of Zieber Corporation. Forecast Zeiber's 2020 income statement and balance sheets. Use the following assumptions: (1) Sales grow by 6%. (2) The ratios of expenses to sales, depreciation to fixed assets, cash to sales, accounts receivable to sales, and inventories to sales will be the same in 2020 as in 2019. (3) Zeiber will not issue any new stock or new long-term bonds. (4) The interest rate is 11% for long-term debt and the interest expense on long-term debt is based on the average balance during the year. (5) No interest is earned on cash. (6) Regular dividends grow at an 8% rate. (7) The tax rate is 25%. Calculate the additional funds needed (AFN). If new financing is required, assume it will be raised by drawing on a line of credit with an interest rate of 12%. Assume that any draw on the line of credit will be made on the last day of the year, so there will be no additional interest expense for the new line of credit. If surplus funds are available, pay a special dividend.

Key Input Data: Used in the

forecast

Tax rate 25%

Dividend growth rate 8%

Rate on notes payable-term debt, rstd 9%

Rate on long-term debt, rd 11%

Rate on line of credit, rLOC 12%

a. What are the forecasted levels of the line of credit and special dividends? Identify the financing deficit or surplus in this preliminary forecast and then add a new column that shows the final forecast that includes any new line of credit or special dividend.)

Begin by calculating the appropriate historical ratios in Column E. Then put these ratios and any other input ratios in Column G.

Forecast the preliminary balance sheets and income statements in Column H. Don't include any line of credit or special dividend in the preliminary forecast.

After completing the preliminary forecast of the balance sheets and income statement, go to the area below the preliminary forecast and identify the financing deficit or surplus. Then use Excel's IF statements to specify the amount of any new line of credit OR special dividend (you should not have a new line of credit AND a special dividend, only one or the other).

After specifying the amounts of the special dividend or line of credit, create a second column (I) for the final forecast next to the column for the preliminary forecast (H). In this final forecast, be sure to include the effect of the special dividend or line of credit.

Identify Financing Deficit or Surplus

Increase in spontaneous liabilities (accounts payable and accruals)

+ Increase in long-term bonds, preferred stock and common stock

+ Net income (in preliminary forecast) minus regular common dividends

Increase in financing

− Increase in total assets

Amount of financing deficit or surplus:

If deficit in financing (negative), show the amount for the line of credit

If surplus in financing (positive), show the amount of the special dividend
