Problem 18-16
Build financial models
The following tables contain financial statements for Dynastatics Corporation. Although the company has not been growing, it now plans to expand and will increase net fixed assets (that is assets net of depreciation) by \$200 per year for the next 5 years and forecasts that the ratio of revenues to total assets will remain at 1.5. Annual depreciation is 10 percent of net fixed assets at the start of the year. Fixed costs are expected to remain at \$56 and variable costs at 80 percent of revenue. The company's policy is to pay out two-thirds of net income as dividends and to maintain a book debt ratio of 25 percent of total capital.

a. Produce a set of financial statements for 2001. Assume that net working capital will equal 50% of fixed assets.
b. Now assume that the balancing item is debt and that no equity is to be issued. Prepare a completed proforma balance sheet for 2001. What is the projected debt ratio for 2001?
