Owen’s Electronics has nine operating plants in seven southwestern states. Sales for last year were $100 million, and the balance sheet at year-end is similar in percentage of sales to that of previous years (and this will continue in the future). All assets (including fixed assets) and current liabilities will vary directly with sales. The firm is working at full capacity.

If sales grow by 30 percent next year, determine how many dollars of new funds are needed to finance the growth. (Do not round intermediate calculations. Enter your answer in dollars, not millions, (e.g., $1,234,567).)
Owen’s Electronics (All figures are in $ millions)
Additional funds needed = increase in assets ? increase in liabilities – increase in retained earnings
Increase in assets =Last year’s assets *sales growth rate= $112*30% = $33.6
Increase in liabilities = Last year’s liabilities*sales growth rate= $42*30% = $12.6
Increase in retained earnings = Current year sales * profit margin - retention rate =$100*130%*9%*60% = $7.02
Additional funds needed =$33.6-$12.6-$7.02 = $13.98
