#8) Abe Forrester and three of his friends from collage have interested a group of venture capitalist in backing their business idea. The proposed operation would consist  of a series of retail outlets to distribute and service a full line of vacuum cleaners and accessories. These stores  would be located in Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio. To finance the new venture two plans have been proposed: Plan A is an allcommon equity structure in which $2.2 million dollars would be raised by selling 82,000 shares of common stock. Plan B would involve issuing $1.4 million  in long term bonds with an effective interest rate of  12.1 % plus another $0.8 million would be raised by selling 41,000 shares of common stock. The debt funds raised under  Plan B have no fixed maturity date, in that this amount of financial leverage  is considered a permanent part of the firm's capital structure. Abe and his partners plan to use a 34% tax rate in their analysis, and they have hired you on a consulting basis to do the following. (a) Find the EBIT in difference level associated with the two financing plans. (b) prepare a pro forma income  statement  for the EBIT level solved for a part (a) that shows that EPS will be the same regardless whether plan A or B is chosen.
