Broussard Skateboard's sales are expected to increase by 15% from $9 million in 2013 to $7.2 million in 2014. Its assets totaled $5 million at the end of 2013. Broussard is already at full capacity, so its assets must grow at the same rate as projected sales. At the end of 2013, current liabilities were $1.4 million, consisting of $450,000 of accounts payable, $500,000 of notes payable, and $450,000 of accruals. The after-tax profit margin is forecasted to be 5%, and the forecasted payout ratio is 65%. What would be the additional funds needed? Do not round intermediate calculations. Round your answer to the nearest dollar.

Assume that the company's year-end 2013 assets had been $2 million. Is the company's "capital intensity" ratio the same or different?

I. The capital intensity ratio is measured as A0*/S0. This firm's capital intensity ratio is higher than that of the firm with $2 million year-end 2013 assets; therefore, this firm is less capital intensive - it would require a smaller increase in total assets to support the increase in sales.

II. The capital intensity ratio is measured as A0*/S0. This firm's capital intensity ratio is lower than that of the firm with $2 million year-end 2013 assets; therefore, this firm is more capital intensive - it would require a smaller increase in total assets to support the increase in sales.

III. The capital intensity ratio is measured as A0*/S0. This firm's capital intensity ratio is lower than that of the firm with $2 million year-end 2013 assets; therefore, this firm is more capital intensive - it would require a larger increase in total assets to support the increase in sales.
