BoothÆs Fixed Assets

12-6 The Booth Company’s sales are forecasted to double from $1,000 in 2010 to $2,000 in 2011. Here is the December 31, 2010, balance sheet:
Cash $100 Accounts Payable $50
Accounts Receivable $200 Notes Payable $150
Inventories $200 Accruals $50
Net Fixed Assets $500 Long-term Debt $400
Common Stock $100
_______ Retained Earnings $250
Total Assets $1,000 Total Liabilities & Equity $1,000
Booth’s fixed assets were used to only 50% of capacity during 2010, but its current assets were at their proper levels in relation to sales. All assets except fixed assets must increase at the same rates as sales, and fixed assets would also have to increase at the same rate if the current excess capacity did not exist. Booth’s after-tax profit margin is forecasted to be 5% and its payout ratio to be 60%. What is Booth’s additional funds needed (AFN) for the coming year?
