Problem 16-7. Pro forma income statement At the end of last year, Roberts Inc. reported the following income statement (in millions of dollars):

Sales 3000
Operating costs excluding depreciation 2450
EBITDA 550
Depreciation 250
EBIT 300
Interest 125
EBT 175
Taxes (40%) 70
Net income 105

Looking ahead to the following year, the company's CFO has assembled the following information:

--Year-end sales are expected to be 7% higher than the \$3 billion in sales generated last year.
--Year-end operating costs excluding depreciation are expected to equal 65% of year-end sales.
--Depreciation is expected to increase at the same rate as sales.
--Interest costs are expected to remain unchanged.
--The tax rate is expected to remain at 40%.

On the basis of this information, what will be the forecast for Roberts' year-end net income? Round the answer to the nearest hundredth.

I'm having trouble figuring out the correct net income for this problem!!!

Hope anyone can help me!!!
Thanks!!!
