Dividend Payout Ratio 40%
2009 Retained Earnings Balance 620.00 thousand
Common Stock 120.00 thousand
Long Term Bonds 80.00 thousand

You must show your work in order to receive credit
a . How much additional external capital will be required for next year given the sales increase as noted above? (Assume that the company is already operating at full capacity.)
b . What will happen to external fund requirements if The Niara Corporation reduces the payout ratio, grows at a slower rate, or suffers a decline in its profit margin? Discuss each of these separately.
c. Prepare a pro forma balance sheet for 2010 assuming that any external funds being acquired will be in the form of notes payable. Disregard the information in part b in answering this question (that is, use the original information and part a in constructing your pro forma balance sheet).
