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 in which $2.1 million dollars would be raised be selling 88,000 shares of common stock.? Plan B would involve issuing $1.3 million dollars in long-term bonds with an effective interest rate of 11.8% plus $0.8 million would be raised by selling 44,000 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 35% 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 two financing plans.b. Prepare a pre forma income statement for the EBIT level solved for in part a. that shows EPS will be the same regardless whether plan a or b is chosen.
