Spring 1998

Problem 1

Bond Rating = BBB

Interest Rate = 9.00%

After-tax Cost of Debt = 5.40%

Unlevered Beta = 1.06/(1+(1-0.4)(.1111)) = 0.993756211

Beta at 25% D/E Ratio = 0.99(1+0.6(.25)) = 1.1428196426

Cost of Equity = 7% + 1.14 (5.5%) = 13.27%

Cost of Capital = 5.40% (.2) + 13.27% (.8) = 11.70%

Problem 2

Change in Firm Value = (250 + 50) (.11-.10)/(.10-.05) = 60

Change in stock price = 60/10 = $ 6.00 ($10.00 if you assume buyback at current price)

Problem 3

(100/250) (2) + (150/250) (X) = 5

Solve for X, X = 7 years

Spring 1999

Problem 1

Value of Bank Loan = 4 (PVA,7%,5) + 50/(1.07)^5 = $52.05 Alternatively, you can assume that the bank debt is at market value

Value of Bonds Outstanding = $50.00

PV of Operating Leases = 10 (PVA,7%,7) = $53.89

Market Value of Outstanding Debt= $155.94 Market Value of Debt = 153.94

Market Value of Equity = 15* 10 = $150.00 If you do this, the cost of debt will be a weighted average of 7% and

Debt Ratio = 155.94/(150+155.94) = 50.97% 8%, the cost of debt will be around 7.5%.

Cost of Capital = 12.60%(.49) + 7% (1-.4)(.51) = 8.32%

31.5

Adjusted EBIT = 40 + 53.89*0.7 = $43.77

Adjusted BV of Capital = 50 + (50 + 50 + 53.89) = 203.89

Adjusted Return on Capital = 43.77 (1-.4)/203.89 = 12.88%

Problem 2

Change in Firm Value = 3 * 10 = $30.00

Firm Value (Chg in WACC)/(WACC(after)-.05) = 250 (Chg in WACC)/(.10 -.05)= 30

Chg in WACC = 0.60%

WACC before = 10.600%

Ke (.8) + 8%(1-.4) (.2) = 10.57%

Cost of Equity before transaction = (.106-.0096)/.8 = 12.05%

Problem 3

Value of firm before expansion = 300 + 70*10 = 1000

Duration of assets after expansion = 7.5 (1000/1250) + 1 (250/1250) = 6.2

Weighted Duration of Assets has to be equal to 6.2years

(200/550)(1) + (100/550)(4) + (250/550) (X) = 6.2

Solve for X

X = 11.24 years

Problem 1

PV of operating leases = $ 1,408

Straight Debt portion of convertible debt = $ 1,798

Total Debt = $ 3,206

Equity

Value of stock = $ 3,000

Value of conversion option = 2500-1798= $ 702

Value of Equity = $ 3,702

Cost of Debt (after-tax) = 7.5%(1-.4)= 4.50%

Cost of Capital = 13.375% (3702/6908) + 4.50% (3206/6908) = 9.26%

Problem 2

Change in Firm Value = 500

5000 (.10 - WACC after)/WACC after = 500

Solve for WACC after,

WACC after = 500/5500 = 9.09%

Cost of Equity after = 5.5% + 1 (6.3%) = 0.118

11.8(X) + 5% (1-X) = 9.09%

Solve for X,

X = (9.09-5)/6.8 = 60%

Debt to Capital ratio = 40%

Problem 3

Cody's should have long term debt: Negative coefficient suggests duration of 7.5 years

BAM should have floating rate debt: Oper income tends to move with inflation

Spring 2000

Problem 1

a. False. It has to be weighed off against the increase in both costs

b. True. It will reduce the marginal tax advantage of debt

c. True. The net operating loss carry forward will reduce the tax benefit of the debt. (No matter how the

the argument is structured, the firm without net operating losses will be able to borrow more money and get

a larger tax savings. The NOL will reduce the income available from which interest expenses can be deducted.

d. False. If you are more uncertain about future investment needs, you will value flexibility more and borrow less.

Problem 2

Current cost of capital = Cost of equity (because firm has no debt) = 9.20%

Change in firm value = .1375 = (Cost of capital before - Cost of capital after)/Cost of capital after Common errors

0.1375 = (0.092 - Cost of capital after)/Cost of Capital after 1. Reversed the cost of capital before and after in

Solving, firm value change calculation.

Cost of capital after = 0.092/(1+.1375) = 8.09% 2. Computed change in firm value incorrectly

Cost of equity after = 10.48% 3. Did not use after-tax cost of debt

Cost of debt after = 4.5% 4. Other math errors.

10.48% (1-X) + 4.5% (X) = 8.09%

Solving for X,

X = 40%

Problem 3

Duration of assets = 7 Common errors

Existing Debt = 1 (duration of this debt = 4 years) 1. Misread the problem to read change by instead of

New Debt = 3 change to.

(1/(1+3)) (4) + (3/(1+3)) X = 7 ! Since the asset mix does not change, the duration remains 72. Tried to change asset duration (why?)

Solving 3. Set up new debt incorrectly (had two unknowns with

Duration of new debt = 8 one equation)

Proportion on new debt that has to be 2 year debt = 25% (.25(2) + .75(10) = 8) 4. Other errors.

Problem 1

a. Current Cost of Equity = 10.72% ! 5% + 1.04*5.5% ! If you decide to use the effective tax rate, the rationale

Current cost of debt = 3.90% has to be that you do not have enough operating income to c

Current cost of capital = 8.47% ! 10.72% (.67) + 3.9% (.33) However, this will mean that the effective tax rate should be

If you did this, I gave you full credit.

b. New debt to capital ratio = 50%

New debt to equity ratio = 100.00% ! I gave full credit if you read the increase as 0.25%

Unlevered Beta = 0.8 of the existing interest rate (I did take off half a point

New Beta = 1.28 if you read it as 25%

New cost of equity = 12.0400% ! You lost a point if you did not unlever and relever betas

New after-tax cost of debt = 4.05%

New Cost of capital= 8.05%

c. Number of shares bought back = 21.7391304 ! Since the price at which you were buying back the stock wa

c. Change in annual financing cost = $6.30 cannot divide by the total number of shares outstanding.

Change in firm value = $78.26

Change per share = $0.58 ! Transfer of wealth to stockholders selling back stock = (11.

Problem 2

Market value of the firm = 2000 ! 1000/.5

Duration of debt at optimal

Let X be the proportion of the debt that is 5-year debt at optimal

X (4) + (1-X) (8) = 7

X = .25

The firm has to have $ 125 million in 5-year debt and $ 375 million in 10-year debt

It needs to pay off $ 275 million of 5-year debt and $ 225 million of 10 year debt.

Current cost of capital = 9%

Current debt ratio = 0.25

Current after-tax cost of debt = 0.036

Current cost of equity = 0.108

Current beta = 1.45

New levered beta = 2.30 ! Debt = 3000; Equity = 2000; Stock buyback reduces the value of equity

Cashflow last year = 50 1050 = 50 (1+g)/ (Cost of capital -g)

Expected growth rate= 0.05 1050 = 50 (1+g)/(.10-g)

Annual cost at current cost of capital = 105

Annual cost at new cost of capital = 94.5

Annual savings = 10.5

Increase in value per share = 3.28125

New stock price = 13.28125

Number of shares bought back = 18.8235294

Number of shares left = 61.1764706

Problem 3

6 (150/500) + 8 (100/500) + X (250/500) = 10

Solving for X,

Duration of new bond = 13.2

Since the firm has little pricing power, you would go with fixed rate debt

Since half of its revenues come from the EU region, half of its total debt of $ 500 million should be in Euros

Hence the firm should use 100% Fixed rate, Euro debt

Problem 3

Value of acquirer = 400 Errors on weights for duration of assets: -1 point

Value of target = 400 Errors on weights for duration of debt: -1 point

Duration of combined firm's assets 5.5 Math errors: -0.5 point each

Total debt of combined firm = 600

Duration of debt = (200/600)*4+(100/600)*6+(300/600)*X = 5.50

Duration of new debt = 6.33333333

Problem 1

a. Current Beta = 2.72 ! Did not after-tax cost of debt: -1/2 point

Cost of Equity 19.32% ! Error on weights: -1/2 point

After-tax Cost of Debt 5.40% ! Math errors: -1/2 point each

Market value of equity = $20.00

Market value of debt = $80.00

Debt to capital ratio 80.00%

Cost of capital 8.18%

New pre-tax cost of debt 6% ! Default spread goes from 6% to 3%

New after-tax cost of debt= 3.60%

Unlevered beta = 0.8 ! 2.72/ (1+ (1-.40)(80/20))

New debt to equity ratio = 0.42857143 ! Errors on unlever or relevering beta: -1 point

New levered beta 1.01 ! Did not unlever and relever beta: -1.5 points

New cost of equity = 9.0343% ! Wrong cost of debt: -1/2 to -1 point

New cost of capital = 7.40% ! Math errors: -1/2 point each

Problem 2 ! Used wrong discount rate for change in firm value: -1 point

Pre-change cost of capital = 8.25% ! Used equity value instead of firm value: -1/2 point

Post-change cost of capital = 8.00% ! Error on increase in firm value: -1 point

Pre-change value of firm = $1,000.00 ! Market value of equity + Debt ! Did not compute change in value from buyback: -1.5 points

Change in cost of capital = 0.25% ! Did not subtract out premium paid in buyback: -1 point

Savings in financing costs = $2.50 ! Change in cost of capital * Firm value ! Divided change by total number of shares: -1.5 points

Increase in firm value = $31.25 ! Savings per year/ New cost of capital

Price per share = $11.00

Number of shares bought back 40 ! New Debt/ Price per share

Premium/share $1.00 ! Buyback price - Old price

Total premium paid = $40.00 ! # Shares bought back * Premium/share

Remaining change in value = -$8.75 ! Increase in firm value - Premium paid in buyback

Remaining shares outstanding = 40.00 ! Original shares outstanding - Bought back shares

Change in value/share -$0.22 ! Remaining change in value/ Remaining shares outstanding

Price per share $9.78

Problem 3

Sheet1

Duration of the media business = 2 ! Duration of existing debt incorrect: -1 point

Value of Ulysses equity, pre-acquist 2000 ! Did not solve for new debt correctly: -1/2 to -1 point

Value of Ulysses debt, pre-acquisito 500

Value of Ulysses, pre-acquisiton = 2500 ! Value of equity + Value of debt

Value of Sylvan, pre-acquisition 1500

Duration post-acquisition 5.75 ! 8 (2500/4000) + 2 (1500/4000)

Existing debt

Duration of existing debt = 2 ! 0.5 (3) + 0.5 (1)

Value of new debt = 1500 ! Set equal to acquired company

(500/2000) (2) + (1500/2000)(X) = 5.75

Duration of new debt = 7

Problem 1 Grading template

Current cost of capital = Current cost of equity = 10% 1. Did not back out beta: -1 point

Unlevered beta for the firm = 0.75 2. Did not adjust tax rate: -1 point

Current value of firm = 1000 3. Did not relever beta: -1 point

If it borrows $ 800 million 4. Did not after-tax cost of debt: -1/2 point

Interest expense = 60 5. Error on new debt ratio: -1 point

EBIT = 45 6. Math errors: -1/2 point each

Adjusted marginal tax rate = 30.0%

New Debt to equity ratio = 400% ( I gave full credit, if you relevered the beta using the 40% tax

New Debt to capital ratio = 80% rate instad of the adjusted marginal tax rate)

New levered beta = 2.85

New cost of equity = 20.100%

After-tax cost of debt = 5.25%

Cost of capital = 8.22%

Problem 2

The first step is to estimate the current value of the firm

Debt outstanding = 100 1. Did not compute change in value correctly: -1 point

Market value of equity = 400 2. Did not set up for new cost of capital: -1 point

Value of the firm = 500 3. Used new firm value in computation: -1/2 point

The next step is to compute the value gained by stockholders in the buyback 4. Math errors: -1/2 point each

Number of shares bought back = 5

Premium paid on buyback = 5

Value gained by buyback investors 25

Remaining shares = 11

Premium on remaining shares = 2

Value gained by remaining shares 22

Total value gained = 47

The third step is to set the value gain, relative to the original firm value

(.09 - New Cost of capital)* 500/ New cost of capital = 47

New cost of capital = 8.23%

Number of shares outstanding after the buyback 11

Price per share after buyback = 27

Value of equity = 297

Page 12

Sheet1

Value of firm after buyback = 547

Change in value = 47

Then, use the same third step as before to get the same answer

Problem 3

a. Duration of assets = 6.8 1. All or nothing, unless egregious math error

b. Duration of debt = 6.4 1. All or nothing, unless egregious math error

c. After acquisition of new business 1. Did not compute new asset duration: -1 point

Duration of assets = 7.25 2. Did not set up for new debt duration: -1 point

To set the duration of the debt to 7.25 years after the debt issue 3. Math errors: -1/2 point each

Let the value of new bonds issued be X (Here is a test of the second part. If you plug in 7.25

Debt oustanding after = 5+X and don't get the right answer, the second part of

(3/(5+X)) *4+ (2+X)/ (5+X) *10 = 7.25 the problem is set up incorrectly)

Solving for X

X= $1.55

Check the answer 7.25

Spring 2014

Problem 1 Grading template

a. Current cost of capital

Current levered beta = 1.15 1. Wrong debt ratio: -1/2 point

Cost of equity = 8.7500% ! 3% + Beta *5% 2. Math errors: -1/2 point each

After-tax cost of debt = 3.00% ! Pre-tax cost of debt (1-.40)

Debt to capital ratio = 20%

Cost of capital = 7.600%

New debt to capital ratio = 60% 1. Wrong debt ratio: -1/2 point

New debt to equity ratio = 1.5 2. Did not adjust tax rate: -1 point

Unlevered beta = 1.00 3. Did not relever beta: -1 point

4. Other math errors: -1/2 point each

Interest expense on debt = 48

Operating income = 36

Maximum tax benefit on debt 14.4

Tax benefit on debt = 30.00% !Max Tax Benefit/ Interest expense

New cost of equity = 13.2500%

New cost of debt = 5.60%

New cost of capital = 8.6600%

Problem 2

Value of firm before buyback 2400

Cost of capital before buybac 10%

Growth rate in perpetuity = 2%

Page 13

Sheet1

Premium per share = $5 2. Firm value incorrect: -1 point

Premium paid on buyback = $200 3. Did not factor in growth: -1/2 point

4. Used wrong cost of capital in discounting: -1/2 point

Remaining shares = 60

Premium per share = 10

Premium to remaining shareh 600

Solving for X

Cost of capital after buyback 8.00%

Value before = 2400 = Cash flow next year / (.10-.02)

Expected cash flow next year 192

Value of debt after buyback = 1520

Total value after buyback = 3200

Solve for X

Cost of capital after = 8.00%

Problem 3

a. Duration of assets today Duration Weight Value

Hotel business 20 60% 600 ! Value of business = Debt + Equity = 800 + 200 = 1000

Travel business 2 40% 400 1. Weights incorrect: -1/2 point

Company assets 12.8 2. Math errors: -1/2 point

Zero coupon bond 15 50% 100 1. Weights incorrect: -1/2 point

Bank loan 1 50% 100 2. Math errors: -1/2 point

Company debt 8

c. After expansion

Expansion investment = 200

Duration of assets Duration Weight Value

Hotel business 20 0.5 600 1. Used old asset duration: -1 point

Travel business 2 0.5 600 2. Weights wrong for new duration: -1 point

Company assets 11 3. Weights wrong for debt: -1 point
