15.2)(EBIT-EPS analysis) 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 vaccum 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 $2.5 million dollars would be raised by selling 80,000 shares of common
stock.



· 
Plan B would involve issuing $1.4 million
dollars in long-term bonds with an effective interest rate of 12.1% plus $1.1
million would be raised by selling 40,000 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 firm's capital
structure. Abe and his partners plan to use a 34% 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 EPS will be the same regardless
whether Plan A or B is chosen.



a. Find the EBIT indifference level associated with the two financing
plans.



  -The EBIT indifference level
associated with the two financing plans is: $______ (Round to the nearest
dollar).

plans.

the long-term EBIT will be above $314,000 annually. Taking this into
