Assuming a 32 percent income tax rate, what was the times interest earned ratio?

Oct 20th, 2017

                           Net sales  =  $439,000

Less: Cost of Goods Sold  =  $219,200

Gross Profit                        =  $219,800

Les: Depreciation Exps     =  $58,900

Net profit                             =  $160,900

Dividend paid as per previous year  =  $1.45 

Therefore total Dividend paid   =  No of common stock  X  Dividend per share

                                                 =  24,000   X   1.45

                                                 =  $34,800

Tax payment   =   160,900  X  (32/100)

                         =  $51,488  

Time interest Earned Ratio  =  Income before interest and Tax  /  Interest expenses

                                                 =  160,900 / 34,800

                                                 =  4.62 times
