Assignment 2: Additional External Financing and Business Plan Project, Week 2
*****Part One: Additional External Financing
You have been running your small business, Craft’s Boat Shop, for several years now and have been very successful. You have come to the point where you expect sales to increase next year and want to be sure that you have enough assets available to support your sales. You also need to have the financing available to acquire those assets, if needed.
Accordingly, you have gathered the following data:
Craft’s Boat Shop
Sales Last Year $1,000,000
Assets at the End of Last Year 750,000
Accounts Payable 60,000
Notes Payable 60,000
Profit Margin on Sales 5%
Dividend Payout 50%
Note: All figures are as of the end of last year
• If you need $0.80 in assets for every $1.00 in sales, by how much can sales increase without obtaining additional outside financing? HINT: Use the AFN formula.
*************Part Two: Business Plan Project, Week 2
Continue working on your business plan. This week, you should create pro-forma financial statements for the first five years of operations. Document all your assumptions and support your use of the assumptions.
