Answer #1

Answer to Question 1:

Return on Equity, ROE = Net Income / Equity

Return on Equity, ROE = $63,000 / $168,500

Return on Equity, ROE = 37.39%

Dividend Payout Ratio = Dividend / Net Income

Dividend Payout Ratio = $37,800 / $63,000

Dividend Payout Ratio = 0.6

Retention Ratio, b = 1 – Dividend Payout Ratio

Retention Ratio, b = 1 – 0.6

Retention Ratio, b = 0.4

Sustainable Growth Rate = [ROE * b] / [1 - ROE * b]

Sustainable Growth Rate = [0.3739 * 0.4] / [1 – 0.3739 *0.4]

Sustainable Growth Rate = 0.1496 / [1-0.1496]

Sustainable Growth Rate = 0.1496 / 0.8504

Sustainable Growth Rate = 0.1759 or 17.59%

For a firm with $3 million in total assets, $400,000 in net
income, and $150,000 in dividend payments, first calculate the
maximum rate of growth in sales without tapping external sources of
funds. Next, show how that growth rate changes if the dividend
payout ratio is reduced to 20 percent. Do these two points suggest
that shareholders must be willing to trade dividends for
growth?
