Last year Miami Rivet had $5 million in operating income (EBIT). Its depreciation expense was $1 million, its

interest expense was $1 million, and its corporate tax rate was 25%. At year-end, it had $14 million in operating current assets, $3 million in accounts payable, $1 million in accruals, $2 million in notes payable, and $15 million in net plant and equipment.
