Current liabilities 28,000
Notes payable 7,000
Long-term debt 15,000
Common Stock 120,000
Retained earnings 30,000
Total liabilities and stockholders’ equity 200,000

Profit Margin = 20000/200000 = .10 or 10%

Dividend Payout ratio = 6000/20000 = .30 or 30%

Increase in Sales = 200000*20% = 40000

Increase in Retained Earning = 240000*10%*(1-.30) = $16800

Required Increase Increase in Asset = (120000/200000)*40000 = 24000

Required Increase in Liabilities = (28000/2000000)*40000 = 5600

Net Increase in Asset = 24000-5600 = 18400

Net Financing Required = 18400-16800= $1,600
