Incremental change in AFB would be \$ 480,000

Explanation:

(a) Debt = \$ 4,000,000

Interest on debt = 10%

Therefore, Interest outgo on debt = 10% of Debt

=10% of \$4,000,000

=\$ 400,000

(b) Dividend payable = \$0.48 per share (given)

No of shares = 500,000 (given)

Therefore, Outgo on account of dividend = \$ 0.48 / share * no of shares

=\$0.48 * 500,000

=\$240,000

(c) Given, that tax in second would be \$160,000 lesser. i. e., outgo would actually be lesser to that extent

Therefore, incremental AFN = (a) + (b) - (c) = \$ 400,000 + \$ 240,000 - \$160,000 = \$480,000

Incremental change in AFB would be \$480,000
