(12-1 for reference only) Broussard Skateboard’s sales are expected to increase by 15% from $8
million in 2013 to $9.2 million in 2014. Its assets totaled $5 million at the end of 2013.
Broussard is already at full capacity, so its assets must grow at the same rate as projected sales.
At the end of 2013, current liabilities were $1.4 million, consisting of $450,000 of accounts
payable, $500,000 of notes payable, and $450,000 of accruals. The after-tax profit margin is
forecasted to be 6% and the forecasted payout ratio is 40%. Use the AFN equation to forecast
Broussard’s additional funds needed for the coming year.
Refer to problem 12-1. What would the additional funds needed if the company’s year-end 2013
assets had been $7 million? Assume that all other numbers, including sales, are the same as in
Problem 12-1 and that the company is operating at full capacity. Why is this AFN different from
the one you found in problem 12-1? Is the company’s capital intensity ratio the same or

a. $400 per year for 10 years at 10%
b. $200 per year for 5 years at 5%

d. Now rework parts a, b, and c assuming that payments are made at the beginning of each
year; that is, they are annuities due.
Sales for Hanebury Corporation’s just ended year were $12 million. Sales were $6 million 5
a. At what rate did sales grow?
b. Suppose someone calculated the sales growth for Hanebury in part a as follows: Sales

results in an estimated growth rate of 20% per year. Explain what is wrong with this

plus $1,000 at maturity. Bond L. has a maturity of 15 years, and bond S has a maturity of 1 year.

(1) 5%, (2) 8% AND (3) 12%? Assume that there is only one more interest
payment to be made on Bond S.
b. Why does the longer-term (15 year) bond fluctuate more when interest rates
change than does the shorter-term bond (1 year)?

As an equity analyst you are concerned with what will happen to the required return to Universal
Toddler Industries’ stock as market conditions change. Suppose rRF = 5%, rM = 12% and bUTI =
a. Under current conditions, what is rUTI, the required rate of return on UTI stock?
b. Now suppose rRF (1) increases to 6% or (2) decreases to 4%. The slope of the SML
remains constant. How would this affect rM and rUTI?
c. Now assume rRF remains at 5% but rM (1) increases to 14% or (2) falls to 11% the slope of
the SML does not remain constant. How would these changes affect rUTI?
