 Temporary current assets \$ 3,100,000 Permanent current assets 1,605,000 Fixed assets 845,000 Total assets \$ 5,550,000

Assume the term structure of interest rates becomes inverted, with short-term rates going to 10 percent and long-term rates 2 percentage points lower than short-term rates. Earnings before interest and taxes are \$1,170,000. The tax rate is 40 percent.

#### Homework Answers

Answer #2

Solution-

Earning before taxes = Earning before interest and tax - interest expense

Earning after tax = Earning before tax - tax

Calculation of interest on short term financing :

Short term financing = Temporary current assets

Short term financing = \$31,00,000

Short term interest rate =10%

Amount of interest on short term financing = \$31,00,000*10%= \$3,10,000 - (A)

Calculation of interest on long term financing:

Long term financing = Permanent current assets + Fixed assets

Long term financing = \$16,05,000+\$8,45,000= \$24,50,000

Long term rates= 8%

Interest on long term financing =\$24,50,000*8%= \$1,96,000 - (B)

Total interest = (A) + (B)

Total interest = 3,10,000+1,96,000= \$5,06,000

Earning before tax= \$11,70,000 -\$5,06,000=\$6,64,000

Earning after taxes= \$6,64,000- ( 6,64,000*40%)= \$3,98,400
