Particulars Option 1 Option 2 Option 3

EBIT 30,000  50,000 80,000

(-) Interest 10,000 10,000  10,000

EBT 20,000 40,000 70,000

Tax @ 50% 10,000 20,000 35,000

EAT 10,000 20,000 35,000

Pref. Dividend 9,000 9,000 9,000

Earnings for equity 1,000 11,000  26,000

EPS = 0.1 1.1 2.6

EPS = (Earnings for equity/Number of equity shares)

DFL = 1.5 1.25 1.14

DFL = EBIT / EBT

Change in EPS =

When EBIT is 50,000 = (1.1 - 0.1) w 100 / 0.1 = 1000%,

When EBIT is 80,000 = (2.6 - 0.1) × 100 / 0.1 = 2,500%

Change in DFL =

When EBIT is 50,000 = (1.25 - 1.5) × 100 / 1.5 = -16.67%

When EBIT is 80,000 = (1.14 - 1.5) × 100 / 1.5 = -24%
