    Cannon Company has enjoyed a rapid increase in sales in recent years, following a decision to sell on credit. However, the firm has noticed a recent increase in its collection period. Last year, total sales were $1 million, and $250,000 of these sales were on credit. During the year, the accounts receivable account averaged $41,096. It is expected that sales will increase in the forthcoming year by 50 percent, and, while credit sales should continue to be the same proportion of total sales, it is expected that the days sales outstanding will also increase by 50 percent. If the resulting increase in accounts receivable must be financed externally, how much external funding will Cannon need? Assume a 365-day year.
