Question

Lake Corporation has €950,000 in current assets, out of which €425,000

are considered permanent current assets. In addition, the firm has €750,000 invested in fixed assets. The company has two financing plans under consideration:

The balance will be financed with short-term financing, which currently costs 6 percent. Lake's earnings before interest and taxes are €350,000. The tax rate is 40 percent.
 
Plan 2: As an alternative, Lake might wish to finance all fixed assets and permanent current assets plus half of its temporary current assets with long-term financing and the balance with short-term financing. Earnings before interest and taxes will be €350,000. The same tax rate and interest rates apply as in Plan 1.
