-Beginning Annuity Do C0 + CAT-1R Infrequent Annuity Find interest rate over the period of intermittent cash flows ie 2 yrs. (1+r)*(1+r) -1 = new rate. Find the annuity over T/intermittent years at int rate new rate. Equate PVs of Annuities 1)Calculate PV of Annuities, discounted to date 0 2) Calculate annual Cs that would yield a PV of PV Annuity year 0 by C x ATr = PV, find C 3) This finds the necessary CFs. Get Monthly or Quarterly or SemiAnnual Rate - if is 12% compounded monthly, then monthly rate = .12/12 and semiannual rate = (.12/12)6-1. If it is x% compounded annually, then quarterly rate = (1+r)1/4-1 Get Nominal Cashflows increase each item in the income statement by the inflation rate, except for depreciation or recovery of networking capital. Find nominal cash flow for each year individually, increasing each value each year by inflation. NPV and IRR for Replacement Machine The same as two competing projects: purchase new vs keep old. Initial cost of new machine is cost of machine plus increase in net working capital. Initial cash outlay for old machine is MV of old machine plus any tax consequence. Depreciation is generally only CF consideration When to abandon a CF Project abandon if the cash flow from selling the equipment is greater than the present value of the future cash flows. We need to find the sale quantity where the two are equal. Set cf from sale = NET CF per sale * Q * AN-1R, find Q Breakeven Analysis Breakeven point is the after tax sum of the FC and the depreciation charge divided by the (selling price VC) = Q* ----- Then to find the financial break even of an initial investment ie liscensing do EAC = investment/Annuity Factor Stock Valuation For stock valuations with a stream of changes, start at the latest div or rate change chunk, then calculate the Price at that date start date, not the date of first dividends because stocks are valued at the date before dividends. With this Px, sub it into the last value of the next earlier chunk that you evaluate, and so on. Finding Number of Shares Divide amount invested by the stock price. The share price is the presnt value of the cash flows, so to find the price of the stock, we need to find the cash flows. CFs include dividends and sale price. Remember Tax. Calculating P/E Ration Always use the current earnings under the stock price, the stock price includes future cash flows, while the current earnings do not include future earnings Finding Rate for Discounting (1+APR/n)n = 1+EAY. What if given APR x% thats compounded semiannually, but want the quarterly rate?? THEN, take (1+ semiannual rate).5 -1 = quarterly rate. X% APR compounded semiannualy yields a x/5% semi annual rate. EAC Budgeting Comparison Use EAC, matching cycles, or salvage method only when projects flows continue in perpetuity, yet if projects for some reason have a clearly established cash flow just compare the total NPVs. Back to EAC method, after finding the NPVs of each project, do NPV = C ATT where C is the unknown and solve for the equivalent cash flow of each project, choose the higher cash flow.

If D/V = x, D=x*VL using VL not V! Although D+E=V, after leverage, E and V will have diff values with taxes because with taxes leverage increases value. When you recapitalize, you have a diff number of total shares than all equity While the expected return on equity rises with leverage, risk to stockholders rises After issuing shares, cash increases and equity increases. Shareholders equally well off with debt and equity financing in a world of no taxes!

NPV of move = - project cost outflow + CF/re. Price = (this NPV + total firm equity original)/#shares originally. This causes total equity to increase by NPV. To find number of shares needed to fund this project, divide project cost by new share price. Share price after purchase is made = total equity(original equity + project cost shares issued + NPV project)/(original shares + new issued shares). Share price stayed the same before and after immediately after announcement and after deal was done. -Finding effect on stock price immediately after funding project on all debt. NPV of announcement = - project cost outflow + CF/re. Price = (this NPV + original firm equity ie value)/#original shares. Share price stays same immediately after announcement and after deal is done. Price of Share after deal finalized = Equity(original + NPV project)/original shares. In absence of taxes, shareholders are equally well off with debt and equity!! Recapitalization Value and Price before recapitalization and before debt is taken on are found normally. P = total equity over number of shares After recapitalization is announced, APV company = VU + NPVrecap = VU + ProceedsInvested - (1-Tc)(rd)(ProceedsInvested)/rd APV = VL > VU. Since the company has not yet issued the debt, this is also the value of equity after the announcement, so new price per share = this VL/original number of shares Number of shares repurchased after the announcement = ProceedsInvested/Price per share that we just calculated Num Shares outstanding = original number of shares number repurchased New Value of equity after announcement and recap = VL after announcement but before recap ProceedsInvested So, Price per share after recap = New value of equity/outstanding number of shares

F2 = Expectations Hypothesis = f2 = E(1r2) Liquidity Hypothesis = f2> or < E(1r2). Buy a two year zero coupon bond or two one year zero coupon bonds. Under Expectation, those are equal when f2 = r2. Liquidity says they will only be equal when spot rate > forward rate because of risk. OR invest in 1 year bond or two year bond but sell after one year. Then forward has to be greater than the spot spot rate r2 to make them equal because of risk. 1r2 = return on a bond issued one year from now maturing in two years

Final Prac Issueance of Equity Ra = .12, E = 56 M, 4M shares, D = 70M r = .05 perp. Reorganization plan buy back some debt thru issuance of 15M of new equity. T = .34, no depr or cfd, r = .05 (a) Give: Stock Price at (i) now, (ii) at announcement, (iii) after announcement (b) After reorganization in (a), now want to acquire new company for 10M, generate EBIT of 3.5M perp annually. Re = .12, It will issue additional 10M of equity and use proceeds to buy company.(i) at announcement, what is D/E ratio? (ii) how many shares must be issued in order to get the 10M in new euqity? (a) (i) Stock Price Now = Total equity/number shares, price = 14 = 56M/4M (ii) Stock Price after announcement = (Current Equity Val Lost Tax Shield)/# Shares = (56M-.34*15M)/4M = 12.725 (iii) Stock Price after repurchase = New Val Equity / New # Shares = (Current Equity Val Lost tax Shield + Val Repurchased Equity)/(Old#shares + New Equity/Price/Share) = (50.9M + 15M)/(4M + 15M/12.725) = 12.725 (b)(i) NPV Project= initial investment + (1-T)(EBIT)/r = -10M + (.66*3.5M/.12) = 9.25M So, Equity is worth New Val Equity from (a) + NPV project = 65.9M + 9.25M = 75.15M, D = 70M-15M = 55M, D/E ratio = 55M/75.15M = .732 (ii) Stock Price after announcement = New Equity from (i) / new number of shares from (a)(iii) = 75.15M/5178781 = 14.511. Number of shares needed = money needed/new price = 10M/14.511 = 689132 Shares Midterm 2 APV (20 points) MomCorp is considering a two-year project that requires an investment of $1 million now. Under all-equity financing, the project would generate after-tax cash flows (after consideration of any depreciation) of $750,000 one year from now and $1,500,000 two years from now. The project has a zero salvage value at the end of two years. The appropriate cost of capital is 15% with all-equity financing.Suppose, however, that MomCorp will borrow $500,000 against the project and this debt will be repaid in two equal installments. The borrowing rate is 10%. The firms tax rate is 30%. Calculate the projects Adjusted Present Value (APV). Solution: The net present value of the project for an all-equity firm would be NPVU=1,000,000+750,000/1.15+1,500,000/1.15^2=786,389.414. If $500,000 of the project is financed with debt to be repaid in two equal installments of X, we must have 500,000=X/1.10+X/1.102 , which gives X=288,095.238. In the first years installment, interest repayment is 500 0000. 0 50 000 which generates a tax shield of 0.350 000 5 000. The rest is the principal repayment 288,095.23850,000=238,095.238, reducing the debt outstanding in the second year to 500,000238,095.238=261,904.762. Therefore, the interest payment in the end of second year is 6 904.76 0. 0 6 90.476 which generates a tax shield of 0.3 6 90.476 7 857. 4 86. The present value of tax shields is PVtax shields=15,000/1.10+7,857.14286/1.10^2=20,129.8701 and the adjusted present value of the project is AV=NPVU+PVtax

(10 points) Today is January 1. The stock of the NyanCat Corporation is currently trading at $40 per share. Analysts are expecting the NyanCat Corporation to have $5 of earnings per share in the coming year. The company will reinvest 60% of these earnings in projects that earn a 20% rate of return per year with the rest being paid out as dividends. Assume that earnings occur and dividends are paid at the end of the year. Assume that both the reinvestment rate of 60% and the rate of return of 20% will continue indefinitely. What would happen to NyanCat's stock price if, alternatively, the company were to cut its dividend payout ratio (i.e. the ratio of dividends to earnings) as of the end of this year to 25% every year with projects still earning 20% annually? Assume that the company's risk is unaffected by the change in payout ratio. (10 points) Again, today is January 1. The NyanDog Corporation paid a dividend of $1 per share yesterday. Analysts are forecasting that NyanDog will experience two years of growth of 10% per year in earnings and dividends, followed by three years of growth of 5% per year in earnings and dividends. Earnings and dividends are paid at the end of the year. Analysts are also estimating that, right after the dividends are paid at the end of year 5, NyanDog will have a ratio of price to year 5's earnings equal to the average P/E ratio in the relevant peer group, which is 22.4. Assuming that the discount rate for NyanDog is 17% and that NyanDog will pay 90% of its earnings in dividends every year from year 1 through year 5, calculate NyanDog's share price. Solution: If we denote E $5 k 0.6 and r 0. , then the expected dividend per share at the end of the year is k E 0.6 $5 $ and the expected growth rate in earnings and dividends is g kr 0.6 0. 0. . From we calculate 4 0. 0. 7. Therefore, if the company were to cut its dividend payout ratio to 25% every year, the plowback ratio would increase to 0.75 and the new price would be

Share Recap Midterm 2 (20 points) Big Kahuna Burger (BKB), an all-equity firm, is valued at $39.5 million. BKB expects $5 million in earnings after taxes each year into perpetuity. The firm has 500,000 shares outstanding. The firms tax rate is 35%. Suppose that BKB announces that it will borrow $30 million of perpetual debt at an interest rate of 8% and simultaneously buy back $30 million worth of equity with the funds. Ignore personal taxes. How many shares outstanding will BKB have after it buys back the equity? What are the firms expected earnings per share before AND after BKB issues debt and buys back the equity? What would the interest rate on the debt have to be so that the share repurchase has no effect on expected earnings per share? Solution: After the announcement of the stock buyback, the value of the equity is EL EU tCD $39 500 000 0.35$30 000 000 $50 000 000 and the per share price is $50,000,000/500,000=$100. The number of shares that the firm buys back is $30,000,000/$100=300,000, so the firm has 500,000-300,000=200,000 shares outstanding after it buys back the equity. For the unlevered firm, the earnings per share are EPSU=$5,000,000/500,000=$10. In order to calculate the earnings per share for the levered firm, we first calculate the total before-tax earnings, E=$5,000,000/(1-tc)=$5,000,000/(1-0.35)=$7,692,308. For the levered firm, the earnings per share are EPSL=(E-rD)(1-tC)/200,000=$7,692,3080.08$30,000,000)*(1-0.35)/200,000=$17.20. The interest rate on debt must solve EPSU=EPSL, i.e., 10=7,692,308-rD30 000 000 -0.35200,000, which givesrD=7,692,308- 0 00 000 -0.3530,000,000=0.15385. The forward rate between the end of year 1 and the end of year 3 is (1+r3^3)/(1+r1)- 7.3 %. The forward rate between the end of year 1 and the end of year 3, expressed in annual terms is:
