Homework Problem, cont’d
|The projected sales for the forecast period is \$165,000. Assume that the existing profit
margin and payout ratio will be maintained in the forecast period. The firm estimates that
additional net fixed asset investment of \$18,000 will be required during the forecast period.
Assume that all current assets are spontaneous except Other Current Assets which is
assumed not to change. Assume that all current liabilities except Notes Payable are
spontaneous.
A. Prepare the pro forma Balance Sheet and pro forma Income Statement. The EFR will be
a plug number that makes the balance sheet balance like in the class example.
B. Using the existing financial statements as your basis, estimate firm XYZ’s EFR for the
forecast period again, but this time using the cookbook model. Also based on the cookbook
equation, how much funding is expected to come from each of the internal sources of funds
(change in SL and retained earnings). If firm XYZ must maintain a minimum current ratio
of 1.8 and a maximum debt ratio of 0.50, how would you propose the EFR be financed
(how much short term debt, long term debt, and equity)?
C. Based on your results in part B, prepare a Pro Forma Sources and Uses of Funds
Statement to reflect the financing allocations that you decided on in part B. The only format
change required is to break the total EFR down into the amounts of short term debt, long
term debt, and new equity. You will have to use the numbers for CA, SL, addition to
R.E., and EFR that you calculated in part B to make it balance, since they may be slightly
different than those from part A. Explain the basis for your financing allocations.

Hints:
Pro Forma TA = Existing TA + CA + NFA
Max Pro Forma Total Liabilities = (D.R. Constraint)(Pro Forma TA)
Max Additional TL = Max. Pro Forma TL –Existing TL
Pro Forma CA = Existing CA + CA
Max Pro Forma CL = Pro Forma CA / CR Constraint
Max Additional CL = Max Pro Forma CL – Existing CL
