Bank loan to take cash discount The Reynolds Corporation buys from its suppliers on

Bank loan to take cash discount The Reynolds Corporation buys from its suppliers on terms of 2/10, net 55. Reynolds has not been utilizing the discounts offered
and has been taking 55 days to pay its bills. Mr. Duke, Reynolds Corporation vice president, has suggested that the company begin to take the discounts offered.
Duke proposes that the company borrow from its bank at a stated rate of 14 percent. The bank requires a 20 percent compensating balance on these loans. Current
account balances would not be available to meet any of this compensating balance requirement. Do you agree with Duke’s proposal?
