Question No. 2:

## Compare the performance of East Coast Yachts to the industry as

a whole. For each ratio, comment on why it might be viewed as
positive or negative relative to the industry. Suppose you create
an inventory ratio calculated as inventory divided by current
liabilities. How do you interpret this ratio? How does East Coast
Yachts compare to the industry average?

pay current liabilities but very low as compared Median and Upper Quartile which means
low solvency position.
Quick Ratio is high than Lower Quartile but low than Median and Upper Quartile
showing that less solvent if inventory is deducted from Current Assets.

Question No. 3:

## Calculate the sustainable growth rate of East Coast Yachts.

Calculate external funds needed (EFN) and prepare pro forma
income statements and balance sheets assuming growth at
precisely this rate. Recalculate the ratios in the previous
question. What do you observe?

## Sustainable Growth rate:

ROE(1DIVIDEND PAYOUT RATIO)

## ROE = 12562200 / 55341000

= 22%
Dividend Payout = Total Dividend / Net Income

= 0.6

= 9.08%

= 11,84,77,242 - 11,54,14,104

= 30, 63,186

## Without Sustainable Growth Rate With Sustainable Growth Rate (9.08%)

Analysis:
Sustainable Growth Rate which is used to check to Firms ability of growing
without taking Loan. After calculating Sustainable Growth Rate, Long Term Debt,
Interest and Dividends are kept Constant to check it. According to the above
analysis, it is shown that Sustainable Growth Rate have no effect on Turnover,
Coverage, Equity Multiplier Ratios and Long Term Solvency Position but have an
effect on Profits and Equity Returns.
Question No. 4:

## As a practical matter, East Coast Yachts is unlikely to be willing

to raise external equity capital, in part because the owners dont
want to dilute their existing ownership and control positions.
However, East Coast Yachts is planning for a growth rate of 20
percent next year. What are your conclusions and
recommendations about the feasibility of East Coasts expansion
plans?

Here, the given Sustainable Growth Rate is 20%.Now according to that rate we
will form a new Balance Sheet and Income Statement.

## Calculation of External Fund Needed:

External Funds needed will be the value that a firm needs to take loan. Here Long Term
Debt is constant so External Fund Needed will be calculated as follows:

## External Fund Needed = Total Assets Total Liabilities & Equity

= 13,03,38,000 - 11,89,59,168

= 1,13,78,832

Conclusion:
If the East Coast Firm have a growth rate of 20% then its profit will be \$
2,68,18,200 without taking loan and extra fund they will need is of \$
1,13,78,832

Question No. 5
Most assets can be increased as a percentage of sales. For
instance, cash can be increased by any amount. However, fixed
assets often must be increased in specific amounts because it is
impossible, as a practical matter, to buy part of a new plant or
machine. In this case a company has a staircase or lumpy
fixed cost structure. Assume that East Coast Yachts is currently
producing at 100 percent of capacity. As a result, to expand
production, the company must set up an entirely new line at a
cost of \$30 million.

Purchase of Fixed Asset will cause changes in Depreciation in Income Statement and in
Total Fixed Assets in Balance Sheet.

## New Asset Purchased = 3 million

New Total Fixed Assets = 93,964,000 + 30,000,000

= 12,39,64,000

Effect on Depreciation

= 5.8%

= 7,203,221

## Calculation of External Fund Needed:

External Funds needed will be the value that a firm needs to take loan. Here Long Term
Debt is constant so External Fund Needed will be calculated as follows:

## External Fund Needed = Total Assets Total Liabilities & Equity

= 14,15,45,200 - 11,89,59,168

= 2,25,86,032

. Conclusion:
East Coast Yachts in increasing its fixed assets due to which there is cash
out flow but the growth rate for all is same 5.8% which means no cash
inflow. It will have to focus on generating more cash revenues to survive
because debt loan is already constant
