1. The Modern Language Corporation earned \$1.6 million on net assets of \$20 million. The cost of capital is 11.5%. Calculate the net ROI and EVA. (Negative amounts should be indicated by a minus sign. Do not round intermediate calculations. Enter "EVA" answer in millions rounded to 1 decimal place.)

ROI %

EVA \$ million

2. The table below shows a condensed income statement and balance sheet for Androscoggin Copper's Rumford smelting plant (figures in \$ millions). Assume the cost of capital is 9%.
Income Statement for 2013 Assets, December 31, 2013
Revenue \$ 56.66 Net working capital \$ 7.08
Raw materials cost 18.72
Operating cost 21.09 Investment in plant and equipment 69.33
Depreciation 4.50 Less accumulated depreciation 21.01

a. Calculate the plant's EVA. (Enter your answer in millions rounded to 2 decimal places.)
EVA \$ million

b. The table above shows, the plant is carried on Androscoggin's books at \$48.32 million. However, it is a modern design, and could be sold to another copper company for \$95 million. How should this fact change your calculation of EVA? (Negative amount should be indicated by a minus sign. Enter your answer in millions rounded to 2 decimal places.)
EVA \$ million

3. In 2011 Beta Corporation earned gross profits of \$760,000.
a. Suppose that it is financed by a combination of common stock and \$1 million of debt. The interest rate on the debt is 10%, and the corporate tax rate is 35%. How much profit is available for common stockholders after payment of interest and corporate taxes? (Enter your answer in nearest dollars not in millions.)
Profit \$

b. Now suppose that instead of issuing debt Beta is financed by a combination of common stock and \$1 million of preferred stock. The dividend yield on the preferred is 8% and the corporate tax rate is still 35%. How much profit is now available for common stockholders after payment of preferred dividends and corporate taxes? (Enter your answer in nearest dollars not in millions.)
Profit \$
