6 1. DSO = REC/(Sales/365) Last year 35 = (460,000)/(sales/365) 35(sales/365) = 460,000 (35/365)(Sales) = 460,000 Sales = 460,000/(35/365) Sales = 4,797,143 New 28 = (REC)/[(4,797,143)/(365)] (28)[(4,797,143)/(365)] = REC 368,000 = REC 2. CR = CA/CL Presently 4.4 = (6,556,000)/CL 4.4CL = 6,556,000 CL = (6,556,000)/(4.4) CL = 1,490,000 Expand inventory (so current assets go up by X) Using short-term liabilities (current liabilities) so CL go up by same amount (X) Target 3.2 = (6,556,000+X)/(1,490,000+X) 3.2(1,490,000+X) = 6,556,000 + X 4,768, X = 6,556,000 + X 2.2X = 1,788,000 X = (1,788,000)/(2.2) = 812, ITR = Sales/INV 22.3 = (25,200,000)/(INV) 22.3INV = 25,200,000 INV = (25, 200,000)/(22.3) = 1,130,045 CR=CA/CL = CA/(290,000) (10.21)(290,000) = 2, 960,900 We are given that cash and marketable securities = 732,342 Current assets = cash and marketable securities + receivables + inventory 2,960,900 = 732,342 + REC + 1,130,045 REC = 1,098,513 DSO = REC/(Sales/365) DSO = (1,098,513)/(25,200,000/365) DSO =

7 4. ROE = ROA(1/(1-DR)) 39% of assets financed with equity, so 61% of assets financed with debt. The debt ratio tells us what % of assets are financed with debt so debt ratio = 61%. ROE = (19%)(1/(1-0.61)) = 48.72% 5. ROE = ROA(1/(1-DR)) 56% of assets are financed with debt (this is the debt ratio) ROE = (8%)(1/(1-0.56)) = 18.18% 6. CR = CA/CL Presently 4.5 = (8,505,000)/CL 4.5CL = 8,505,000 CL = (8,505,000)/(4.5) CL = 1,890,000 Expand fixed assets (so current assets do not change) Using short-term liabilities (current liabilities) so CL go up by X Target 3.6 = (8,505,000)/(1,890,000+X) 3.6(1,890,000+X) = 8,505,000 6,804, X = 8,505, X = 1,701,000 X = (1,701,000)/(3.6) = 472, ITR = Sales/INV = (25,200,000)/(INV) 22.30INV = 25,200,000 INV = 1,130,045 CR = CR/CL = CA/(290,000) CA = 2,960,900 QR = (CA INV)/(CL) QR = (2,960,900 1,130,045)/(290,000) QR =

8 8. ROE = (NPM)(TATR)(1/(1-DR)) ROE = (11.88%)(3.50)(1/( )) = ROE = 74.64% 9. ROE = ROA(1/(1-DR)) Debt ratio = 30% since that % of assets are financed with debt ROE = (19%)(1/(1-0.30)) = 27.14% 10.

BEP = EBIT/TA 0.42 = (EBIT)/(108,000,000) EBIT = (0.42)(108,000,000) = 45,360,000 ROA = NI/TA 0.11 = (NI)/(108,000,000) NI = (0.11)(108,000,000) = 11,880,000 NI = (EBIT INT)(1 T) 11,880,000 = (45,360,000 INT)(1-0.40) (11,880,000)/(1-0.40) = 45,360,000 INT 19,800,000 = 45,360,000 INT INT = 25,560,000 TIE = EBIT/INT TIE = (45,360,000)/(25,560,000) = ROA = (NPM)(TATR) 0.15 = (NPM)(3) NPM = (0.15)/(3) = 0.05 = 5% 16. PE ratio = (price per share)/(earnings per share) Earnings per share = EPS = (net income)/(shares outstanding) EPS = (241,000,000)/(13,240,000) = PE ratio = (price)/(eps) 15.1 = (price)/( ) Price = (15.1)( ) = ROE = ROA(1/(1-DR)) 0.25 = ROA(1/(1 0.40)) ROA = (0.25)(1 0.40) = 0.15 = 15% 18.

DSO = REC/(Sales/365) In this problem: TA = Cash + REC + INV + FA 8,000,000 = 960,000 + REC + 1,440, ,800,000 REC = 800,000 DSO = (800,000)/[(24,000,000)/(365)] = DR = (total debt)/(total assets) = (total liabilities)/(total assets) In this problem: TL&Eq = AccPay + LTD + Common stock + RE Total liabilities = AccPay + LTD TL&Eq = total liabilities + Common stock + RE 8,000,000 = total liabilities + 640, ,160,000 Total liabilities = 4,200,000 DR = (4,200,000)/(8,000,000) = = 52.50% 22.
