New Earth Mining Case Solution

...the equity holders’ perspective. This is the most appropriate method because NESA is assuming all the risks and returns for the project. Based on this approach, the WACC is calculated to be 9.45% (see Exhibit 1). Approach 1 does not take into consideration that a separate entity is undertaking the investment; therefore, using New Earth’s corporate WACC (14%) to discount the project cash flows is not feasible. Approach 2 takes a more conservative valuation by adding an expected return premium of 10%, resulting in a WACC of 24%. However, this does not accurately reflect the cost of capital for NESA. Under Approach 4, the leveraged cost of equity was estimated to be approximately 24%, which is a reasonable rate due to the risks that this investment brings to New Earth. However, this approach is not appropriate for this investment because it only takes into consideration the equity holders and does not focus on the subsidiary as a whole. NESA is the entity taking on the project so its own risks and return is important if New Earth wants the subsidiary to be profitable. Financing Package Adds Positive Return on the Iron Ore Project The financing package will add positive value to New Earth because its NPV is estimated to be $181.75 million (see Exhibit 2). First, the U.S. banks do not require interest to be paid or compounded in the first two years of investment, reducing the total interest expense to NESA. This positively affects the NPV due to higher cash flows in early......

...sheet presentation, and taxes. Each also has a different effect on a Company’s leverage, dilution, and a host of other metrics by which businesses are measured. Finally, each financing option brings a different type of relationship with the respective financing source. The Company’s planned use of funds, desired relationship with the capital source, and type/stage of the company will largely determine the optimal form of financing for a given situation. (DCap Partners 2012). In the case of NESA, New Earth Mining Inc has taken a senior subordinated debt of 60 million dollars from two Chinese steel makers at a rate of 9% pa, 40 million dollars senior unsecured debt from a Japanese and Korean bank at a rate of 7%pa and finally 60 million dollars on a 10% pa interest rate from syndicated bank loans. The priority of payments starts with the syndicated bank loan. The bank loan has a collateral of all mining equipment and its covenant states that after interest and contractual debt repayments, NESA would use all remaining discretionary cash flow for prepayments of debt and the issuance of dividends. (Fruhan, Wang 2013). An analysis of the structure of debt that New Earth Mining is to undertake shows that the initial debt to equity ratio is 80% debt : 20% equity. This indicates that firstly the project is capital intensive, secondly the project is highly leveraged and finally the tenure is long. * The advantages of using more debt than equity finance are as follows; the......

...New Earth Mining Paper Sample APA Style 1.0. Executive summary This study gives an analysis and appraisal of New Earth Mining (NEM) company investment prospect in the Iron Ore mining industry in South Africa. It looks at the current financial position of NEM and prospective success of the investment via a subsidiary New Earth South Africa (NESA). The analysis methods delve into the estimated returns on investment by use of approximated cash flows. Results of the analysis show that the returns from the investment are likely to be positive. The case study also investigates the financial soundness of NEM and so its susceptibility to new investments (Fruhan & Wang, 2013). The company’s data used is up to date and hence it is reliable making this study meticulous. The project should commence in year 2015 with an initial Investment cost of $200 million, 40% of which will be required in early 2013 and the remaining 60% in early 2014. The investment will include construction, insurance, operating assets and will have $20m worth of working capital. $40 million of loans will be required in 2013 and $120 million of loans required in 2014 (interest accrued over 2013 and 2014 and paid in 2015). Iron ore has high demand from the steel manufacturing industry. It is mined and transported from South Africa by sea to other countries that manufacture steel. This trade has recorded a steady increase of 4.4% over the years. South Africa produces 1 billion tons of ore annually, which puts......

Indiana School Data

...has struggled to recruit minority students and teachers. (Worland, 2010) About forty-two percent of all public schools in the United States have no minority teachers. Minority students make up thirty-three percent of enrollment in U.S. public schools, while the total of minority teachers reaches just 13.5 percent. By the early 21st century, the percentage of minority teachers is expected to shrink to an all-time low of 5 percent, while 41 percent of American students will be minorities. (NESA, 2010) Source: National Center for Education Statistics, Digest of Education Statistics, 1998 Turnover rates are high. An estimated 6 percent of the nation's teaching force leaves the profession and more than 7 percent change schools. Twenty percent of all newly hired teachers leave teaching within the first three years. In urban school districts, close to 50 percent of new teachers flee the profession during their first five years of teaching. (NESA, 2010) Source: National Center for Education Statistics There is a rather large disparity between minority students and minority teachers. While minority students are approaching nationally 33 %, teachers are hanging in at 13.5% with a projection of minority teachers shrinking to 5% during the early part of the 21st century. From these figures it is easy for school leaders to see the problem with minority teachers is now and in the future. Decisions in terms of recruiting and......

My Best Friend

...My Best Friend My best friend , Nesa is of mixed percentage – half Chinese and half Indian . She is a good girl. I got to know her when I was six . I remembered how the first time I met her. One day, as usual when I was playing with my playmate-Barbie Doll then the news I received that we are going to have a new neighbor from my mum. As my mum said we are going to have a new neighbour I was the first per son to get excited. This is because, since I was born I had never experienced living with a neighbor. My mother also said our neighbor had a child and we have to attend their house warming function . As my mother said our neighbor had a child I began to pray to the God that the neighbor child must be a girl and same age with me. The next day arrived, both my mother and I attended my neighbor ‘s house warming function. I went into her house excitedly hope that the child my mother referred was a girl and same age with me . First, I saw a man wearing traditional attire standing and welcoming the visitors who came to pay visit. After that I was introduced to the girl by her mum. The first word she utter to me is “vannakam” . On the function we did not get a lot of time to get to know each other but I found out that she is my age. From the first word “vannakam” Nesa and I became almost inseparable. Not only she was my age, she is also an only child like me, she also share my favourites such as playing Barbie Dolls,watching Tom and Jerry...

...first truly multinational corporation. The group operates in 33 countries, and is anchored by more than 132,000 employees belonging to 42 nationalities. Mission We will delight our customers while meeting their individual communication needs anytime anywhere. We survive because of our customers. Issue on hand The recent Supreme Court judgment in context of the unveiled 2G scam – mandates the cancelling of cancelling 122 licenses for multiple operators across India. This includes Idea’s 9 licenses and 4 licenses of the erstwhile Spice Communications which stands merged with Idea Cellular. * Operational Impact: Idea Cellular had rolled out telecom services in 7 license areas including Tamil Nadu, Kolkata, West Bengal, Orissa, Assam, NESA and Jammu & Kashmir. * The remaining 2 licenses of Idea Cellular and 4 licenses of the erstwhile Spice Communications are non-operational. * These licenses, as per the then stated Government policy, should have been granted to Idea Cellular much earlier than January, 2008. Hence it is an unfortunate scenario where an incumbent operator like Idea Cellular is got into this turmoil in spite of abiding by all legalities associated with the license procurement. The question now on hand is: 1. In case the authorities are oblivious to the concerns raised by Idea Cellular Ltd. and there is no option left but to re-bid to sustain operations, should it re-bid at all? 2. Does it make sense to bid for all circles? 3.......
