How firms estimate their cost of capital: The WACC for a firm is 13.00 percent. You know that the firm’s cost of debt capital is 10 percent and the cost of equity capital is 20%. What proportion of the firm is financed with debt?

Solution:Given, WACC=13%,Kd=10%,Ke=20%

We know, Ke=Ko+(K0-Kd)B/S

Or,.20=.13+(.13-.10)x B/S

Or,.20-.13=.03x S/E

Or,.07=.03S/E

Or,.07/.03= S/E

Or,S:E=70:30

Question 18

Your answer is correct.

The cost of equity: Gangland Water Guns, Inc., is expected to pay a dividend of $2.10 one year from today. If the firm’s growth in dividends is expected to remain at a flat 3 percent forever, then what is the cost of equity capital for Gangland if the price of its common shares is currently $17.50?

Solution: D1=$2.10,g=3%,P1=$17.50

Cost of Equity = (Next Year’s dividends per share / Current market value of stock) + Growth rate of dividends

=($2.10/$17.50)+0.03

Question 19

Your answer is correct.

If a company’s weighted average cost of capital is less than the required return on equity, then the firm:

Question 21

Your answer is correct.

M&M Proposition 1: Dynamo Corp. produces annual cash flows of $150 and is expected to exist forever. The company is currently financed with 75 percent equity and 25 percent debt. Your analysis tells you that the appropriate discount rates are 10 percent for the cash flows, and 7 percent for the debt. You currently own 10 percent of the stock.

If Dynamo wishes to change its capital structure from 75 percent to 60 percent equity and use the debt proceeds to pay a special dividend to shareholders, how much debt should they issue?

Solution: Given, Annual cashflow=$150, E=75%,D=25%,V=100,Ke=10%,Kd=7%,dividend=10%

WACC=(KexS/V) +(KdxB/V)

=(.10x.75)+(.07x.25)

=.0925 or 9.25%

Debt/Equity= 25/75=33%

When it changes its capital structure, reduces its equity by 15%, the debt to equity ratio=40/60=66.7%

Question 22

Your answer is correct.

Multiple Analysis: Turnbull Corp. had an EBIT of $247 million in the last fiscal year. Its depreciation and amortization expenses amounted to $84 million. The firm has 135 million shares outstanding and a share price of $12.80. A competing firm that is very similar to Turnbull has an enterprise value/EBITDA multiple of 5.40.

What is the enterprise value of Turnbull Corp.? Round to the nearest million dollars.

Solution: Given,

EBIT=$247 million

Depriciation & amortization expenses= $84 million

Number of outstanding shares=135 million, share price o$12.80

Enterprise Value/EBITDA multiple=5.40

We know that,

Enterprise value multiple=Enterprise value/ EBITDA[EBITDA=Revenue-Expenses

Or, 5.40=Enterprise value/EBIT+ Depriciation

Or, 5.40x$(247+84)=Enterprise Value

Or, Enterprise Value =$1,787 million

Solution: Given,

Total Assets= $4,417,665

Net income=$2,771,342

Dividend pay out ratio=60%

Net sales

Cost of goods sold

Cash conversion cycle: What is the cash conversion cycle for Ridge Company?

CCC=Operating cycle-Average payment period

Operating Cycle = Average age of inventory+ Average collection Period

AAI=Cost of Inventory/Cost of Goods sold x 365

=$12,890/$99,630 x 365

= 47.2 days

ACP= Accounts Receivables/(Annual sales/365)

= 37.5 days

Operating cycle=(47.2+37.5)days

=84.7

Average payment period=360 days/A/P Turnover Ratio[COGS/Average A/P=$99,630/{(12670+12890)/2}]
