Consider a firm with an EBIT of $1,019,000. The firm finances its assets with $4,880,000 debt (costing 7.9 percent) and 219,000 shares of stock selling at $16.00 per share. To reduce risk associated with this financial leverage, the firm is considering reducing its debt by $2,800,000 by selling additional shares of stock. The firm is in the 40 percent tax bracket. The change in capital structure will have no effect on the operations of the firm. Thus, EBIT will remain at $1,019,000.

Calculate the EPS before and after the change in capital structure and indicate changes in EPS. (Negative answer should be indicated by a minus sign. Round your answers to 2 decimal places.)
