Dividend payout ratio %

What is the maximum sustainable growth rate for this company?

Sustainable growth rate %

Answer #1

ROE =(Profit margin)*(Total asset turnover)*(Equitymultiplier)

=4.9%*(1.09)*(1+.85)

=9.88%

Sustainable growth rate= [(ROE)(b)] / [1 – (ROE)(b)

Sustainable growth rate =15.75%

b=retention ratio

Payout ratio =1-b

=15.75%=(9.88%*b)/[1 – (9.88%)(b)

b= 1.377218

**Dividend Payoutratio= 1 – 1.377218 =-37.71%**

dividend payout ratio is negative which is impossible growth rate is inconsistent with the other constraints

The lowest possible payout rate is zero, which correspondsto a retention ratio of one

The maximum sustainable growth rate for this company is

= [(ROE)(b)] / [1 – (ROE)(b)]

= [0.0988(1)] / [1 – 0.0988(1)]

Sustainable growth rate **=10.96%**
