The Fast-Track Co. has thus far only used equity to finance its operations and currently has 1,000,000 shares outstanding with an EBIT of $1,500,000. The newly-hired CFO firmly believes that the firm would benefit its shareholders a great deal by issuing $10,000,000 of debt at the rate of 10% per year and buying back 400,000 shares. If interest is tax-deductible, the firm is being charged a rate of 10% interest on borrowed funds, and the firm is in a 35% tax bracket, is the new CEO correct?
