The company's financial analysts expect the new facility's average EBIT level to be $6 million per year.

Plan 1 (Equity Financing). Under this plan, $2 million common shares will be sold at $10 each.
Plan 2 (Debt equity financing). Under this plan, $10 million of 12 percent long-term debt and 1 million common shares at $10 each will be sold.
