Last year;Bell Corp had $200,000 of assets, $300,000 of sales, $20,000 of net income, and;a debt-to-total-assets ratio of 40%. The;new CFO believes the firm has excessive fixed assets and inventory that could;be sold, enabling it to reduce its total assets to $150,000.

The;debt-to-total-assets ratio was 25%, the interest rate on the debt was 10%, and;the firm's tax rate was 35%. The new CFO;wants to see how the ROE would have been affected if the firm had used a 60%;debt ratio. Assume that sales and total;assets would not be affected, and that the interest rate and tax rate would;both remain constant. By how much would the ROE change in response to the;change in the capital structure?;a.5.01%;b.5.20%;c.5.35%;d.5.57%;e.5.69%;[xxix].Cooper Inc.;expects sales next year to be $300,000 and operating costs to be $270,000.
