Consider a firm with an EBITDA of $14,400,000 and an EBIT of $11,200,000. The firm finances its assets with $51,400,000 debt (costing 7.2 percent) and 10,700,000 shares of stock selling at $6.00 per share. The firm is considering increasing its debt by $25,800,000, using the proceeds to buy back shares of stock. The firm’s tax rate is 21 percent. The change in capital structure will have no effect on the operations of the firm. Thus, EBIT will remain at $11,200,000.
Calculate the EPS before and after the change in capital structure and indicate changes in EPS. (Round your answers to 3 decimal places.)

For the computation of EPS, it is important to compute Interest expense, tax and net income.
Debt=$51,400,000
Interest Expense=7.2%
Compute the Interest Expense:
Computation of tax:
Tax Rate=21%
EBIT=$11,200,000
Interest=$3,700,800
The computation of tax is shown below:
Computation of Net Income:
