Question

Question;(EBIT-EPS analysis) Abe Forrester and three of his friends from college have interested a group of venture capitalists in backing their business idea. The proposed operation would consist of a series of retail outlets to distribute and service a full line of vacuum cleaners and accessories. These stores would be located in Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio. To finance the new venture two plans have been proposed:? Plan A is an all-common-equity structure i n which \$2.2 million dollars would be raised byselling 82,000 shares of common stock.? Plan B would involve issuing \$ 1. 1 million in long-term bonds with an effective interest rate of 11.6 percent plus another \$ 1. 1 million would be raised by selling 41,000 shares of common stock. The debt funds raised under Plan B have no fixed maturity date, in that this amount of financial leverage is considered a permanent part of the firm's capital structure.Abe and his partners plan to use a 38 percent 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 regardless whether Plan A or B is chosen.a.
