# The raattama corporation | Accounting homework help

The Raattama Corporation had sales of \$3.5 million last year, and it earned a 5% return (after taxes) on sales. Recently, the company has fallen behind in its accounts payable. Although its terms of purchase are net 30 days, its accounts payable represent 60 days’ purchases. The company’s treasurer is seeking to increase bank borrowings in order to become current in meeting its trade obligations (that is, to have 30 days’ payables outstanding). The company’s balance sheet is as follows (in thousands of dollars):

 Cash \$100 Accounts payable \$600 Accounts receivable 300 Bank loans 700 Inventory 1,400 Accruals 200 Current Assets \$1,800 Current liabilities \$1,500 Land and buildings 600 Mortage on real estate 700 Equipment 600 Common stock, \$0.10 par 300 Retained earnings 500 Total Assets \$3,000 Total liabilities and equity \$3,000

a. How much bank financing is needed to eliminate the past-due accounts payable?

b. Assume that the bank will lend the firm the amount calculated in part a. The terms of the loan offered are 8%, simple interest, and the bank uses a 360-day year for the interest calculation. What is the interest charge for one month? (Assume there are 30 days in a month.)

c. Now ignore part b and assume that the bank will lend the firm the amount calculated in part a. The terms of the loan are 7.6%, add-on interest, to be repaid in 12 monthly installments.

1. What is the total loan amount?

2. What are the monthly installments?

3. What is the APR of the loan?

4. What is the effective rate of the loan?

d. Would you, as a bank loan officer, make this loan? Why or why not?
