(EBIT-EPS analysis) Abe Forrester and three of his friends from college have interested a group of ventre capitalists in backing their business idea. The proposed operation would consist of a ceries of retail otlets to distribute and service a full line of vacuum cleaners and accessories. These stores would be locted in Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio. To fiace the new ventre two plans have been proposed:-Plan A is an all-common-equity structure in which $2.1 million dollars would be raised by selling 82,000 shares of common stock.-Plan B would involve issuing $1.4 million dollars in long-term bonds with an effective interest rate of 11.8% plus $0.7 million would be raised by selling 41,000 shares of common stock.

Abe and his partners plan to use a 38% tax rate in their analysis, and they have hired you on a consulting basis to do the following:a. Find the EBIT indifference level associated with the two financing plans.b. Prepare a pro forma income statement for the EBIT level solved for in Part a. that shows that EPS will be the same regarless whether Plan A or B is chosen.a. Find the EBIT indifference level associated with the two financing plans.The EBIT indifference level associated with the two financing plans is $__________. (round to the nearest dollar).b.
