1. 6 month | 1 year | Investment | C1 = 10,000 | C2 = 20,000 | 26,000 | r1 = 0.03 | r2 = spot rate = s | |

100 = 31+0.03+ 1031+s where 3 is the coupon payment based on a 6% yield

s= 6.09%

NPV = -C0+ C1(1+r1)+ C2(1+r2)

NPV = -26,000+ 10,000(1+0.03)+ 20,000(1+0.0609)

NPV = 2560.66 with positive NPV, YES, we should invest

2. Based on the Annuity Formula and assuming the same 9%, 30 year, with time t=0 (10 years ago)
Monthly Payments = 4,023.11 Mortgage = 500,000
AC, r, t= Cr 1-1(1+r)t

500,000= 4,023.11(0.0912) 1-1(1+(0.0912))12(30)

500,000= 4,023.11(0.0912) 1-1(1+(0.0912))360

r≠ 0.09 r= 0.09*0.9122=0.0821 or 8.21%

New formula then becomes:
500,000= 4,023.11(0.082112) 1-1(1+(0.082112))12t

t= 23.2 years

3. Year | 0 | 1 | 2 | ∞ | Sales | | 100 | 110 | Cr-g=1100.05-0.03=5500 | Profit | | 20 | 22 | C∞= 1100 | Depreciation | | -10 | -10 | | ∆ NWC | | -10 | -1 | -55 | CAPX | | -11 | -12 | | Taxes (40%)(Gross Profit) | | -8 | -8.8 | -440 | Net Cash Flows | | -9 | 0.2 | 660 |

CF=Gross Profit-Taxes-CAPX- ∆NWC
R1 year: The 1 year rate should be equal to investing in four 3 month rates.
FV3 month@ t=1 year
FV=1 1+0.0344=1.03034
FVPV=1+r 1.030341= 1+r1 year
NPV=0= -C0-91+0.0303+0.21+0.042+ 660 already accounted for r

...Solutions to Homework 3, FINC-UB.0002.02 Xuyang Ma Topic 6: Equity Valuation 1. Suppose that the consensus forecast of security analysts of your favorite company is that earnings next year will be E1 = $5.00 per share. Sup- pose that the company tends to plow back 50% of its earnings and pay the rest as dividends. If the Chief Financial Ocer (CFO) estimates that the company's growth rate will be 8% from now onwards, answer the following questions. (a) If your estimate of the company's required rate of return on its stock is 10%, what is the equilibrium price of the stock? The equilibrium price of a stock can be determined using Gordon's growth formula as follows: P0 = where E1 (1 − b) R−g b = .5 the plow back ratio, R = .10 the required rate of return, and g = .08 is the growth rate. Thus, the price should be: P0 = $5(1 − .5) = $125 .10 − .08 1 (b) Suppose you observe that the stock is selling for $50.00 per share, and that this is the best estimate of its equilibrium price. What would you conclude about either required rate of return; or pany's future growth rate? Recall from the formula above, that a higher required rate of return implies a lower equilibrium price of the stock. On the other hand, a higher growth rate implies a higher stock price. a lower equilibrium stock price ($50 either: Thus, (i) your estimate of the stock's (ii) the CFO's estimate of the com- < $125) could indicate that (1) the required rate of return...

...Rebecca Logan Week 1 Homework Chapter 1 Exercise 14 In this situation, the opportunity cost is only the incremental revenue versus the costs to stay open. The revenues are $2500, while the costs total $1500. Rent and depreciation of office equipment are not included in this analysis because those costs will be incurred regardless of whether the company stays open on Saturday or not. Problem 2 a. The total variable costs for producing an additional 50,000 jars (375,000 jars total) are $480,000. The incremental costs for the additional 50,000 jars are $64,000. b. If Santiago’s reduces the price by $.40, they would sell an additional 50,000 jars. This would bring in a revenue of $1,725,000, versus $1,625,000 if they sell at $5 per jar. The incremental revenue would be the additional revenue ($100,000) – the incremental costs ($64,000), which equals $36,000. c. Santiago’s should lower the prices, as the incremental revenue would be more than the incremental costs. Problem 4 a. It would definitely be useful to investigate both increases. For the increase in the cost of merchandise, we should investigate to see specifically which merchandise we spent more on. We did have an increase in sales, but we need to make sure we are spending money on merchandise that is selling more. We also need to investigate the salaries of sales staff to make sure that the salaries that were higher than we expected were paid to sales staff that was also bringing in additional......

Summary Corp Finance - Chap11 Hawawini

...HAWAWINI – CHAP11. Managers need to make two major decisions: A – What investments to take; B – How to finance it; A company that decide to finance its projects with external funds, maybe fi nd itself in difficult situation to pay its debts (excessive borrowing). Managers will be under pressure to make decisions that may not be in the best interest of shareholders – example: sell of value –creating assets; Conversely, a firm with too little debt may pass up the opportunity to reduce its tax payments and increase its value through tax savings. The firm’s optimal capital structure is the debt ratio that maximizes the market value of the firm’s assets. We have to analyze how a change in firm’s debt ratio affects: 1 – Profitability, measured with earnings per share (EPS); 2 – Market value of its assets; 3 – Share price; 4 – Cost of capital. Example: 100% equity finance Example: Borrow $100M @ 10% and repurchase of 1M shares EPS increases, but firm’s value remains the same. MM Theorem – capital structure does not increase firm’s value (in a world without taxes and costs of financial distress). This is explained by risk, any gain in EPS is offset by higher risks company faces by taking debt. In the example above, shareholders would be better off with leverage, though company’s management might think it is riskier to do it. So shareholder can replicate leverage on his personal account, by borrowing and buying new shares. * Annual tax shield: Tc x Kd x D ...

...estimates, the OCF is the amount the firm received for its business operations. The FCF is the money that represents true profit. While the $4,000 is a larger number this money will be used to pay expenses, while the FCF is extra and can be used to pay investors or to pay more towards decreasing debt. P2-4 The appropriate action on Aluminum Industries Inc loan request, in regards to its debt ratio would be to deny the request. For three reasons: 1. The Firms debt ratio is 73%, which is 22% higher than the industry average of 51%. A firms debt ratio measures the proportion of total assests financed by the firm’s creditors. 73% is considered to be a high number and tells me that the firm has a high reliance on borrowed money to finance the company. Debt ratio = $36,500,000 / $50,000,000 = 0.73 or 73% 2. The Firms debt equity ratio is 1.48, which is also higher than the industry average of 1.07. Debt equity ratio = $20,000,000 / $13,500,000 = 1.48 3. The final measure is Aluminums times interest earned ratio which is 3, while the industry average is 7.30. The higher the ratio the more likely the firm will pay its obligations. Times interest earned...

...Sergio Park Homework 6 Chapter 16 Concept Review and Critical Thinking Questions 1-6, 9-10 1) Business risk is the equity risk that comes for the firm’s operating activity. While financial risk is the equity risk that comes from the capital structure of the firm. Firm A or Firm B could have higher cost of capital regardless of what kind of risk. 2) No, because there are points where the cost of debt is still less than the cost of equity. Use of debt doesn’t necessarily increases the WACC. 3) It is hard to determine the D/E ratio that will maximize the firm’s value because there are too many factors that differs across the different industries. However, the firm can find the optimum value of D/E ratio by comparing the cost of debt with cost of expected bankruptcy. 4) Fixed cost intensive such as airlines, cable television and electricity uses greater financial leverage. While industries that have higher risk uses less financial leverage. Firms with less variable cost and predictable revenue uses more debt financing. Some firms might actually benefit from high debt/equity ratio because of the tax cut (higher cash flow) 5) Because it magnifies gain and losses (?) 6) Homemade leverage is the use of personal borrowing instead of the corporate borrowing to fund. 9) It might be considered unenthical because if the company its losing money it means either that it is not beneficial to the market, or the company its not efficient. Therefore, no one should......

...Why is corporate finance important to all manager? Corporate finance is important to all managers due to the priority capital has in a company. That is, without effective financial management, a company will be unable to develop products, get them to market and grow the business. Organizational forms a company may have as it evolves from start up to major corporation are: Sole Propietorship. Effectively a person “hangs a shingle” and becomes a business. It is subject to few government regulations and income is taxes as the proprietor’s personal income. However, its structure makes it difficult to generate growth capital, the proprietor has unlimited personal liability for company debts and the company only lives as long as the propietor. Partnership: This can take the form of a limited partnership and a general partnership where liability and control is divided along these lines. A limited liability partnership or limited liability company is structured to where all partners have limited liability with respect to the business’s liabilities. This works well for the partners but is an area of concern for the partnerships lenders, customers and suppliers. Corporation: This is created as a separate legal entity under law and as such is “separate and distinct” from its owners and managers. The advantages are is has unlimited life and can continue after the death of the owners. It also has easy transferability of ownership interest through transfer and sale of......

...a. Why is corporate finance important to all managers? Corporate finance provides the skills managers need to: (1) identify and select the corporate strategies and individual projects that add value to their firm; and (2) forecast the funding requirements of their company and devise strategies for acquiring those funds. b. Describe the organizational forms a company might have as it evolves from a start-up to a major corporation. List the advantages and disadvantages of each form. The three main forms of business organization are sole proprietorships, partnerships, and corporations. Several hybrid forms are also gaining popularity. These include the limited partnership, the limited liability partnership, the professional corporation, and the S corporation. The proprietorship has three important advantages: (1) it is easily and inexpensively formed, (2) it is subject to few government regulations, and (3) the business pays no corporate income taxes. The proprietorship also has three important limitations: (1) it is difficult for a proprietorship to obtain large sums of capital; (2) the proprietor has unlimited personal liability for the business’s debts, and (3) the life of a business organized as a proprietorship is limited to the life of the individual who created it. The major advantage of a partnership is its low cost and ease of formation. The disadvantages are similar to those associated with proprietorships which are unlimited liability, limited life of......
