FIN 534 Week 10 Homework Set 5 – NEW
Boehm Corporation has had stable earnings growth of 8% a year for the past 10 years and in 2013 Boehm paid dividends of \$2.6 million on net income of \$9.8 million. However, in 2014 earnings are expected to jump to \$12.6 million, and Boehm plans to invest \$7.3 million in a plant expansion. This one-time unusual earnings growth won’t be maintained, though, and after 2014 Boehm will return to its previous 8% earnings growth rate. Its target debt ratio is 35%.

Calculate Boehm’s total dividends for 2014 under each of the following policies:

Its 2014 dividend payment is set to force dividends to grow at the long-run growth rate in earnings.

It continues the 2013 dividend payout ratio.

It uses a pure residual policy with all distributions in the form of dividends (35% of the \$7.3 million investment is financed with debt).

It employs a regular-dividend-plus-extras policy, with the regular dividend being based on the long-run growth rate and the extra dividend being set according to the residual policy.

Use the following information for Questions 5 and 6:

Schweser Satellites Inc. produces satellite earth stations that sell for \$100,000 each. The firm’s fixed costs, F, are \$2 million, 50 earth stations are produced and sold each year, profits total \$500,000, and the firm’s assets (all equity financed) are \$5 million. The firm estimates that it can change its production process, adding \$4 million to investment and \$500,000 to fixed operating costs. This change will (1) reduce variable costs per unit by \$10,000 and (2) increase output by 20 units, but (3) the sales price on all units will have to be lowered to \$95,000 to permit sales of the additional output. The firm has tax loss
