Year Cash Flow
0 ?
1 $2,000

6. Below are the returns of Nulook Cosmetics and "the market" over a three-year period:

Year Nulook Market
1 9% 6%
2 15 10
3 36 24

Nulook finances internally using only retained earnings, and it uses the Capital Asset Pricing Model with a historical beta to determine its cost of equity. Currently, the risk-free rate is 7 percent, and the estimated market risk premium is 6 percent. Nulook is evaluating a project which has a cost today of $2,028 and will provide estimated cash inflows of $1,000 at the end of the next 3 years. What is this project's MIRR?

15. A company's balance sheets show a total of $30 million long-term debt with a coupon rate of 9 percent. The yield to maturity on this debt is 11.11 percent, and the debt has a total current market value of $25 million. The balance sheets also show that that the company has 10 million shares of stock; the total of common stock and retained earnings is $30 million. The current stock price is $7.5 per share. The current return required by stockholders, rS, is 12 percent. The company has a target capital structure of 40 percent debt and 60 percent equity. The tax rate is 40%. What weighted average cost of capital should you use to evaluate potential projects?

16. A company has determined that its optimal capital structure consists of 40 percent debt and 60 percent equity. Given the following information, calculate the firm's weighted average cost of capital.

rd = 6%
Tax rate = 40%
P0 = $25
Growth = 0%
D0 = $2.00

(The following information applies to the next six problems.)

Rollins Corporation is estimating its WACC. Its target capital structure is 20 percent debt, 20 percent preferred stock, and 60 percent common equity. Its bonds have a 12 percent coupon, paid semiannually, a current maturity of 20 years, and sell for $1,000. The firm could sell, at par, $100 preferred stock which pays a 12 percent annual dividend, but flotation costs of 5 percent would be incurred. Rollins' beta is 1.2, the risk-free rate is 10 percent, and the market risk premium is 5 percent. Rollins is a constant-growth firm which just paid a dividend of $2.00, sells for $27.00 per share, and has a growth rate of 8 percent. The firm's policy is to use a risk premium of 4 percentage points when using the bond-yield-plus-risk-premium method to find rs. The firm's marginal tax rate is 40 percent.

17. What is Rollins' component cost of debt?

18. What is Rollins' cost of preferred stock?

19. What is Rollins' cost of common stock (rs) using the CAPM approach?

20. What is the firm's cost of common stock (rs) using the DCF approach?

21. What is Rollins' cost of common stock using the bond-yield-plus-risk-premium approach?

22. What is Rollins' WACC?

23. Allison Engines Corporation has established a target capital structure of 40 percent debt and 60 percent common equity. The firm expects to earn $600 in after-tax income during the coming year, and it will retain 40 percent of those earnings. The current market price of the firm's stock is P0 = $28; its last dividend was D0 = $2.20, and its expected growth rate is 6 percent. Allison can issue new common stock at a 15 percent flotation cost. What will Allison's marginal cost of equity capital (not the WACC) be if it must fund a capital budget requiring $600 in total new capital?

24. Hamilton Company's 8 percent coupon rate, quarterly payment, $1,000 par value bond, which matures in 20 years, currently sells at a price of $686.86. The company's tax rate is 40 percent. Based on the nominal interest rate, not the EAR, what is the firm's component cost of debt for purposes of calculating the WACC?

25. The Target Copy Company is contemplating the replacement of its old printing machine with a new model costing $60,000. The old machine, which originally cost $40,000, has 6 years of expected life remaining and a current book value of $30,000 versus a current market value of $24,000. Target's corporate tax rate is 40 percent. If Target sells the old machine at market value, what is the initial after-tax outlay for the new printing machine?

26. Real Time Systems Inc. is considering the development of one of two mutually exclusive new computer models. Each will require a net investment of $5,000. The cash flow figures for each project are shown below:

Period Project A Project B
1 $2,000 $3,000
2 2,500 2,600
3 2,250 2,900

Model B, which will use a new type of laser disk drive, is considered a high-risk project, while Model A is of average risk. Real Time adds 2 percentage points to arrive at a risk-adjusted cost of capital when eval¬uating a high-risk project. The cost of capital used for average-risk projects is 12 percent. Find the NPV of Model A and Model B.

27. Klott Company encounters significant uncertainty with its sales volume and price in its primary product. The firm uses scenario analysis in order to determine an expected NPV, which it then uses in its budget. The base case, best case, and worse case scenarios and probabilities are provided in the table below. What is Klott's expected NPV, standard deviation of NPV, and coefficient of variation of NPV?

Probability Unit Sales Sales NPV
of Outcome Volume Price (In Thousands)
Worst case 0.30 6,000 $3,600 -$6,000
Base case 0.50 10,000 4,200 +13,000
Best case 0.20 13,000 4,400 +28,000

28. Pierce Products is deciding whether it makes sense to purchase a new piece of equipment. The equipment costs $100,000 (payable at t = 0). The equipment will provide before-tax cash inflows of $45,000 a year at the end of each of the next four years (t = 1, 2, 3, 4). The equipment can be depreciated according to the following schedule:
t = 1: 0.33
t = 2: 0.45
t = 3: 0.15
t = 4: 0.07

At the end of four years the company expects to be able to sell the equipment for a salvage value of $10,000 (after-tax). The company is in the 40 percent tax bracket. The company has an after-tax cost of capital of 11 percent. Since there is more uncertainty about the salvage value, the company has chosen to discount the salvage value at 12 percent. What is the net present value of purchasing the equipment?

29. Your company is considering a machine that will cost $1,000 at Time 0 and which can be sold after 3 years for $100. To operate the machine, $200 must be invested at Time 0 in inventories; these funds will be recovered when the machine is retired at the end of Year 3. The machine will produce sales revenues of $900/year for 3 years; variable operating costs (excluding depreciation) will be 50 percent of sales. Operating cash inflows will begin 1 year from today (at Time 1). The machine will have depreciation expenses of $500, $300, and $200 in Years 1, 2, and 3, respectively. The company has a 40 percent tax rate, enough taxable income from other assets to enable it to get a tax refund from this project if the project's income is negative, and a 10 percent cost of capital. Inflation is zero. What is the project's NPV?

30. The Unlimited, a national retailing chain, is considering an investment in one of two mutually exclusive projects. The discount rate used for Project A is 12 percent. Further, Project A costs $15,000, and it would be depreciated using MACRS. It is expected to have an after-tax salvage value of $5,000 at the end of 6 years and to produce after-tax cash flows (including depreciation) of $4,000 for each of the 6 years. Project B costs $14,815 and would also be depreciated using MACRS. B is expected to have a zero salvage value at the end of its 6-year life and to produce after-tax cash flows (including depreciation) of $5,100 each year for 6 years. The Unlimited's marginal tax rate is 40 percent. What risk-adjusted discount rate will equate the NPV of Project B to that of Project A?
