Long-Term Financing Needed
At year-end 2018, Wallace Landscaping’s total assets were $1.94 million, and its accounts payable were $435,000. Sales, which in 2018 were $2.1 million, are expected to increase by 30% in 2019. Total assets and accounts payable are proportional to sales, and that relationship will be maintained. Wallace typically uses no current liabilities other than accounts payable. Common stock amounted to $480,000 in 2018, and retained earnings were $340,000. Wallace has arranged to sell $195,000 of new common stock in 2019 to meet some of its financing needs. The remainder of its financing needs will be met by issuing new long-term debt at the end of 2019. (Because the debt is added at the end of the year, there will be no additional interest expense due to the new debt.) Its net profit margin on sales is 7%, and 60% of earnings will be paid out as dividends.
