Business is going well for Email Designers. The board of directors of this family-owned company believes that Email Designers could earn an additional $1,000,000 income before interest and taxes by expanding into new markets. However, the $4,000,000 the business needs for growth cannot be raised within the family. The directors, who strongly wish to retain family control of the company, must issue securities to outsiders. They are considering three financing plans. Plan A is to borrow at 6%. Plan B is to issue 100,000 shares of common stock. Plan C is to issue 100,000 share of non voting, $2.50 preferred stock of common stock. ($2.50 is the annual cash dividend for each share of preferred stock.) Email Designers currently has net income of $1,200,000 and 400,000 share of common stock outstanding. The company’s income tax rate is 40%
