Degree of Financial Leverage (DFL)

Calculations for various entries are done below;
Sales forecast is 15% increase
Percentage sales are calculated by dividing values that affected by sales by the current sales. For example, cost as a percentage of sales QUOTE  
The percentage for tax rate is determined using the taxable income, which gives 30%.
Retained earnings and dividends respective percentages are determined by using net income.
External financing required (EFN) is the forecasted total assets minus forecasted total liability/equity

At a capacity of 85%

S0 = Current Sales,
S1 = Forecasted Sales
g = the forecasted growth rate is Sales,
A*0 = Assets (at time 0) which vary directly with Sales,
L*0 = Liabilities (at time 0) which vary directly with Sales,
PM = Profit Margin = (Net Income)/(Sales), and
b = Retention Ratio = (Addition to Retained Earnings)/(Net Income).

Since SFC is greater than the forecast sales, the above formula is used, but only the total current assets are used in the calculations.

Extra funding not needed in this case.

Sales forecast is 20% increase, which is calculated as;

External financing required (EFN) is the forecasted total assets minus forecasted total liability/equity

Addition to retain earnings is given as:

The Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR)

Where d-dividend payout ratio and ROE-return on equity

The sustainable growth rate has been calculated with values considering sales growth of 20%. Therefore, external funding needed is equal to that needed at a sales forecast of 20% increase, which is $25.6.
At the growth rate where no external funding is required, the total assets will equal the total liability/equity. Given that before a growth rate, Total assets equals total liability/equity. Therefore, external funding will not be required at no growth rate or at zero (0) rate.
