Solution

Identify various items in balance sheet directly along with sales as:

  1. Accrued expenses
  2. Trade creditors
  3. Current Asset
  4. Fixed Asset

Net fixed assets   =     (300M/500M) x 100   =  60%

Current Assets     =     (100M/500M )x 100   =  20%    

Trade creditors      =    (50/50) x 100             = 10%

Accrued expenses =    ( 30/500) x 100          =   6%

a) Compute the increase in sales over the 2 years.

Year 2002 sales           =500 * (115/100) =575M       

Year 2003 sales           = 575* (115/100) = 632M      

Increase in sales in 2003-03-26=        632.5 - 500     =          132.5M

b) Compute the amount of external requirement of the firm over the 2 years of forecasting period.

i) Increase in F. Assets                    =          % of sales x increase in sales

                                                        =          60% x 132.5  =  79.5M

ii) Increase in C. Assets = % of sales x increase in sales

                                                       =          20% of 132.5  =  26.5M

  Total additional investment/asset required                          106M

Interpretation

For the company to earn increase in sales of 132.5M it will have to acquire additional assets costing 106M.

                                                                                                                                    Sh.'000'

Additional investment/asset required                                                                        106,000

Less: Spontaneous source of finance

Increase in creditors   = % of sales x increase in sales

                                    = 132,500 x 10%                                                                     (13,250)

Increase in accrued expenses = % of sales x increase in sales         

                                                            = 132,500 x 6%                                               (7,950)

Less: Retained earnings during 2 years of operation (initial sources)

            Net profit for 2003      = Net profit margin x sales of 2003

                                                = 12% of 575,000                    =          69,000

            Less: Dividend payable 80% of 69,000                                   =55,200           (13,800)

            Net profit for 2004      = Net profit margin x sales of 2004

                                                = 12% of 632,500                    =          75,900

            Less: dividend payable 80% of 75,900                                    =60,720          (15,180)
