1. Organic Micros was established 8 years ago by Mary Mendoza. The firm reported EBIT
this year of $80,000. Mary typically reports about $2,000 in personal expenses through
the firm each year. She also pays herself a salary of $60,000 despite the market rate for
such a position being closer to $30,000.
2. The firm currently reports $10,000 in depreciation expenses every year.
3. The firm will need $25,000 of inventory replaced in year 1 and will also require the
replacement of equipment during year 4 in an amount totaling $50,000.
4. The firm currently has outstanding debt of $400,000. The firm has been historically
financed in a way that 30% of funds are a result of debt financing. The cost of this debt
financing is estimated to be 12% while the cost of equity financing is estimated at 22%.
5. Mary originally invested $120,000 of her own funds in the firm which establishes a cost
basis for the firm of $120,000. Mary typically falls in a tax bracket that results in a total
tax rate of 40%.
6. Based on the firm’s maturity and the state of the industry, it is estimated the EBIT will
increase by 9% each year for the next 5 years. Beyond this time frame, a reasonable
estimate of growth is neither possible nor relevant.
