a. sustainable growth rate:
c. internal growth rate:

 1 sustainable growth rate=(ROE * Retention Ratio)/(1-ROE*Retention Ratio) ROE =net income / total Equity =17300/59000 29.32% Retention Ratio =1-Dividend Payout=1-(9400/17300) 45.66% sustainable growth ratio =(29.32%*45.66%)(1-29.32%-45.66%) 15.46% 2 New Total Asset =(77000+59000)*(1+15.46%) 157025.4 New Debt =D/(D+E)*New total Aset==77000/(77000+59000)*157024.4 88904.11 Old Debt 77000 Increase in Borrowing 88901.11-77000 11904.11 3 internal growth rate =ROA *Retention Ratio/(1-ROA*Retention Ratio) ROA 12.72% Retention Ratio =1-Dividend Payout=1-(9400/17300) 45.66% internal growth rate=12.72%*45.66%/(1-12.72%*45.66%) 6.17%
