  1. 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 in which 2.1 million dollars would be raised by selling 84,000 shares of common stock. Plan B would involve issuing 1.1 million dollars in long term bonds with an effective interest rate of 11.6% plus a 1.0million would be raised by selling 42,000 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 firms 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 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 Plan B is chosen

 

  1.  Three recent graduates of the computer science program at the University of Tennessee are forming a company that will write and distribute new application software for the iPhone. Initially, the corporation will operate in the southern region of Tennessee, Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina. A small group of private investors in the Atlanta, Georgia area is interested in financing the startup company and two financing plans have been put forth for consideration: The first (Plan A) is an all-common-equity capital structure. $2.3 million dollars would be raised by selling common stock at $10 per common share. Plan B would involve the use of financial leverage. $1.5 million dollars would be raised by selling bonds with an effective interest rate of 10.7% (per annum), and the remaining $0.8 million would be raised by selling common stock at the $10 price per share. The use of financial leverage is considered to be a permanent part of the firm’s capitalization, so no fixed maturity date is needed for the analysis. A 30% tax rate is deemed appropriate for the analysis.
    1. Find the EBIT indifference level associated with the two financing plans. (Round the nearest dollar.)
    2.  A detailed financial analysis of the firm’s prospects suggests that the long-term EBIT will be above $350,000 annually. Taking this into consideration, which plan will generate the higher EPS? (Round income statement amounts to the nearest dollar except the EPS to the nearest cent.)
