Question 1

 

Table 9.2

A firm has determined its optimal structure which is composed of the following sources and target market value proportions.


Debt: The firm can sell a 15-year, $1,000 par value, 8 percent bond for $1,050. A flotation cost of 2 percent of the face value would be required in addition to the premium of $50.
Common Stock: A firm's common stock is currently selling for $75 per share. The dividend expected to be paid at the end of the coming year is $5. Its dividend payments have been growing at a constant rate for the last five years. Five years ago, the dividend was $3.10. It is expected that to sell, a new common stock issue must be underpriced $2 per share and the firm must pay $1 per share in flotation costs. Additionally, the firm has a marginal tax rate of 40 percent.

A firm has common stock with a market price of $100 per share and an expected dividend of $5.61 per share at the end of the coming year. A new issue of stock is expected to be sold for $98, with $2 per share representing the underpricing necessary in the competitive capital market. Flotation costs are expected to total $1 per share. The dividends paid on the outstanding stock over the past five years are as follows:

Answer

[removed]

 

Project A can be accepted because the payback period is 2.5 years but Project B cannot be accepted because its payback period is longer than 3 years.

[removed]

 

Project B should be accepted because even thought the payback period is 2.5 years for project A and 3.001 project B, there is a $1,000,000 payoff in the 4th year in Project B.

[removed]

 

Project B should be accepted because you get more money paid back in the long run.

[removed]

 

Both projects can be accepted because the payback is less than 3 years.
