This answer was rated:

Camping USA Inc. has only been operating for 2 years in the outskirts of Albuquerque, New Mexico, and is a new manufacturer of a top-of-the-line camping tent. You are starting an internship as assistant to the chief financial officer of the company, and the owner and CEO, Tom Charles, has decided that this is the right time to know more about the business and financial risks his company must deal with. For this, the CFO has asked you to prepare an analysis to support him in his next meeting with Tom Charles a week from today. To make the required calculations, you have put together the following data regarding the cost structure of the company: Output level 120,000 units Operating assets 6,000,000.00 Operating asset turnover 12 times Return on operating assets 48% Degree of operating leverage 10 times Interest expense $720,000 Tax rate 42% The CFO has instructed you to first determine the break-even point in units of output for the company. He requires that you prepare supporting documents, which demonstrate how you arrived at your conclusion and can facilitate his review of your work. Accordingly, you are required to have the information needed to prepare an analytical income statement for the company to be presented to the CFO. In a format that is acceptable for a meeting discussion with the CEO, you also need to prepare answers to the following questions: a. What is the firm’s break-even point in sales dollars? b. If sales should increase by 40 percent, by what percentage would EBT (earnings before taxes) and net income increase? c. Prepare another income statement, this time to verify the calculations from part d.

Hello againCustomer/p>


Thank you for getting back to me. The only problem is that when you are late to respond we lose valuable time, so for future posts, please make sure to check your email so that we do not lose time. I have also sent you a message through management regarding the amount offered for such a long problem. Since the deadline is tonight I am afraid you would miss the deadline so I will post the solutions, but for future posts please make sure you take the length of the questions into consideration when making your offer to avoid delays in providing solutions.
