At year-end 2013, Wallace Landscaping s total assets were $1.8 million and its accounts payable were $440,000. Sales, which in 2013 were $2.6 million, are expected to increase by 30% in 2014. Total assets and accounts payable are proportional to sales, and that relationship will be maintained. Wallace typically uses no current liabilities other than accounts payable. Common stock amounted to $390,000 in 2013, and retained earnings were $280,000. Wallace has arranged to sell $160,000 of new common stock in 2014 to meet some of its financing needs. The remainder of its financing needs will be met by issuing new long-term debt at the end of 2014. (Because the debt is added at the end of the year, there will be no additional interest expense due to the new debt.) Its profit margin on sales is 6%, and 55% of earnings will be paid out as dividends.
