a.       Cumberland Industries’s 2010 sales were $455,000,000; operating costs (excluding depreciation) were equal to 85%  of sales; net fixed assets were $67,000,000; depreciation amounted to 10% of net fixed assets; interest expenses were $8,550,000; the state-plus-federal corporate tax rate was 40%; and Cumberland paid 25% of its net income out in dividends.  Given this information, construct Cumberland’s 2010 income statement.  Also calculate total dividends and the addition to retained earnings.  (Hint: Start with the partial model in the file and report all dollar figures in thousands to reduce clutter.)


b.      Cumberland Industries’s partial balance sheets are shown below.  Cumberland issued $10,000,000 of new common stock in 2010.  Using this information and the results from a part a, fill in the missing values for common stock, retained earnings, total common equity, and total liabilities and equality.
