#### Solution Preview

25-1 FCF1 = 2.00(1.05) = $2.1 million; g = 5%; b = 1.4; rRF = 5%; RPM = 6%; wd = 30%; T = 40%; rd = 8% Vops = ? P0 = ?

The value of operations is the present value of the cash flows. The cash flows are disdcounted at WACC to get the present value. We need to calculate the WACC.

We use the CAPM equation to calculate the cost of equity

rs = rRF + RPM(b)

= 5% + 6%(1.4)

= 13.4%.

WACC = wdrd(1-T) + wsrs

= 0.30(8%)(0.60) + 0.70(13.4%)

= 10.82%

Since the cash flows grow at a cosntant rate we use the constant growth formula

Vops =

=

= $36.08 million

VS = Vops - debt

= 36.08 - 10.82 = $25.26 million

Price = 25.26 million / 1 million shares

= $25.26 / share.

25-2 FCF1 = $2.5 million, FCF2 = $2.9 million, FCF3 = $3.4 million, and FCF4 = 3.57 million; Interest in the 4th year = $1.472 million. g = 5%; b = 1.4; rRF = 5%; RPM = 6%; wd = 30%; T = 40%; rd = 8% Vops = ? P0 = ?

In this case since the interest is separate, we need to calculate the unlevered value of operations and then add the interest shield. To calculate to unlevered value of operations we ...

#### Solution Summary
