Bus 411 Assignment 5 Due March 19 at the beginning of class (12:30 PM) ASSURANCE OF LEARNING EXERCISE 8C: PERFORM AN EPS/EBIT ANALYSIS FOR WALT DISNEY PURPOSE: An EPS/EBIT analysis is one of the most widely used techniques for determining the extent that debt and/or stock should be used to finance strategies to be implemented. This exercise can give you practice performing EPS/EBIT analysis. INSTRUCTIONS: Let’s say Walt Disney needs to raise \$1.2 billion to build a new theme park in Africa. Determine whether Disney should have used all debt, all stock, or a 90-10% (and 10-90%) combination of debt and stock to finance this market-development strategy. Assume a 29% tax rate, 5% interest rate, Walt Disney stock price of per share, and an annual dividend of \$0.40 per share of common stock. The EBIT range for 2012 is between \$6 billion and \$9 billion. A total of 1.9 billion shares of common stock are outstanding. Develop an EPS/EBIT chart to reflect your analysis. Stock price should be from 2011.

ASSURANCE OF LEARNING EXERCISE 8D: PREPARE PROJECTED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS FOR WALT DISNEY PURPOSE: This exercise is designed to give you experience preparing projected financial statements. Pro forma analysis is a central strategy-implementation technique because it allows managers to anticipate and evaluate the expected results of various strategy-implementation approaches. INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Develop a 2012 projected income statement and balance sheet for Disney. Assume that Disney plans to raise \$900 million in 2012 to build a new theme park in Africa and plans to obtain 50 percent financing from a bank and 50 percent financing from a stock issuance. Make other assumptions as needed, and state them clearly in written form. 2. Compute Disney’s current ratio, debt-to-equity ratio, and return on investment for 2012. How do your 2012 ratios compare to the 2010 and 2011 ratios? Why is it important to make this comparison?
