Given the level of current assets, anticipated sales adn Earnings Before Interest and Taxes (EBIT) for next year are $60 million and $6 million, respectively. The organizations income tax rate is 40%; Stockholders equity will be used to finance $40 million of its assets, with the remainder being financed by short-term and long-term debt.
