From the NPV profile, it can be seen that Project A is preferred over Project B if
the discount rate is above 4%. At 4% and below, Project B has the higher NPV.

The current value of Sleepy is $20 million. and Immense believes it can increase the value by $5 million. 10.125 million. A firm cannot change the outcomes of its investment policy by changing its payout policy.000.000. the NPV of the merger to Acquiring will be zero.08 = $6. This equals the decrease in the value of the stock held by Velcro’s original shareholders.000. This is the increase in the value of the stock held by Pogo shareholders. The merged company will have a total value of: $20 million + $10 million + $6. The cost of the offer is $14 million – $10 million = $4 million.000  $40 = $400.000  $20 = $100. therefore.25 million (from cost savings) = $36.000 Takeover Target: Value = 5.b. 9. NPV = $6.

So Immense would have to pay the full value of the target firm under the improved management. Again. a. Acquiring can pay up to $25 per share for Target.000/0. The causation in this statement is reversed: Safer companies pay more generous dividends because their forecast cash flows are more predictable. If Acquiring pays this amount. 8.25 million.

This is the gain from the merger.000 The merger gain per share of Takeover Target is $25 million/5 million shares = $5.

and the price of SCC shares rises to reflect the NPV of the merger.800 = $52.000 + 800 = 3.00 = $150. SCC value = 3. SCC will sell for its original price plus the per-share NPV of the merger: $50 + ($10.50 to the tender price of $20.000 – $5.
