Question description

Please explain how to calculate the EBIT in the following problem:

(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 vacuum cleaners and accessories. These stores would be located in Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio. To finance the new venture two plans have been proprosed:
Plan A is all common-equity- structure in which 2.3 million dollars would be raised by selling 84,000 shares of common stock.
Plan B would involve issuing $1.1 million dollars in long term bonds with an effective interest rate of 11.6% plus $1.2 million would be raised by selling 42,000 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 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 that 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 financial plans is $__?
