Lear, Inc. has $800,000 in current assets, $350,000 of which are considered permanent current assets. In addition, the firm has $600,000 invested in fixed assets.
a. Lear wishes to finance all fixed assets and half of its permanent current assets with long-term financing costing 10 percent. Short-term financing currently costs 5 percent. Learís earnings before interest and taxes are $200,000. Determine Learís earnings after taxes under this financing plan.
The tax rate is 30 percent.
A. 175,000(half of working capital)+600,000(fixed assets)=775,000 in assets to be financed with LT Debt (10% interest rate)
The other $175,000(half of permanent current) will be financed at 5% as well as the 450,000 in variable current assets. ($625,000x.05)
Long term financing.
Can anyone tell me if one of these is correct? I have come out with these two figures but I am not sure which is the correct way to go.
LT Expense: 77500
ST Expense: +31250
Taxes (30%): -32625
Net Income: =76125 Or,
Long-term financing 775000
Short-term financing 625000
Less: Short-term interest 31250
Less: Long-term interest 77500
Less: Taxes 27375
