a. increase
b. decrease
c. remain the same
d. not be affected

Question 2.

In the year 2000 KMB company Reported an EPS of $3.00, and at the time the shares sold at a P/E multiplier of 9

In the year 2001 the company reported an EPS of $3.50 and shares had a P/E multiplier of 12

By how much did the share market price increase in the year 2001?

a. $4.50
b. $6.00
c. $9.00
d. $15.00

can anyone answer this question and please explain in language ( or a sum) that anyone can understand?

Answer 1.
The current ratio would increase in such case.

Current ratio= current assets/current liabilities

Before payment
Current ratio =2

After payment
Current ratio =2.25





Answer No 2.

there would be an increase of Rs.15 per share.

Price per share =P/E multipler* EPS

In 2000
Price per share=9*3=27

In 2001
Price per share=3.5*12=42

Net increase= 42-27 =15


please write back if any queries
