1. Aero Company currently has net income of $3 million and 1. million common shares outstanding which sell for $20 per share. Aero has decided to issue new stock to raise $4,000,000 to expand its operations. Aero's investment banker will sell the new shares for $18 per share with a spread of 7%. There will be a $60,000 registration cost.
a. Calculate the current EPS and PE ratio.

PE ratio = Market value / Earning per share

20*1,000,000 / 3

b) 4,000,000 + 60,000 = 4060,000/18=225556 shares
