Consider a firm with an EBIT of $1,000,000. The firm finances its assets with $4,500,000 debt (costing 8 percent) and 200,000 shares of stock selling at $16.00 per share. To reduce risk associated with this financial leverage, the firm is considering reducing its debt by $2,500,000 by selling additional shares of stock. The firm is in the 40 percent tax bracket. The change in capital structure will have no effect on the operations of the firm. Thus, EBIT will remain at $1,000,000. Calculate the change in the firm’s EPS from this change in capital structure.
