5)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 proposed:
• Plan A is an all-common-equity structure in which $2.2 million dollars would be raised be selling 90,000 shares of common stock.
• Plan B would involve issuing $1.3 million dollars in long-term bonds with an effective interest rate of 12.4% plus $.9 million would be raised by selling 45,000 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 38% 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.

6) three recent graduates of the computer science program at the university of Tennessee are forming a company that will write and distribute new application software for the iPhone. Initially the corporation will operate in the southern region of Tennessee, Georgia, north Carolina, and South Carolina. A small group of private investors in the Atlanta, Georgia area is interested in financing the startup company and two financing plans have been put forth for consideration:

The first plan (plan A) is an all-common-equity capital structure. 2.1 million dollars would be raised by selling common stock at $10 per common share

- Plan B would involve the use of financial leverage. 1.1 million dollars would be raised by selling bonds with an effective interest rate of 10.9% (per annum) and the remaining 1 million would be raised by selling common stock at the $10 price per share. The use of financial leverage is considered to be a permanent part of the firms capitalization, so no fixed maturity date is needed for the analysis. A 30% tax rate is deemed appropriate for the analysis.
A. Find the EBIT indifference level associated with the two financial plans. (nearest $)

- B. A detailed financial analysis of the firms prospects suggests that the long term EBIT will be above $339,000 annually. Taking this into consideration, which plan will generate the higher EPS?
