Question 12-1
Broussard Skateboard’s sales are expected to increase by 15% from $8 million in 2013 to $9.2 million in 2014. Its assets totaled $5 million at the end of 2013. Broussard is already at full capacity, so its assets must grow at the same rate as projected sales. At the end of 2013 current liabilities were $1.4 million, consisting of $450,000 accounts payable, $500,000 of notes payable and $450,000 of accruals.
