Solutions Manual Fundamentals of Corporate Finance 9th edition Ross Wester eld and Jordan Updated 12202008 CHAPTER 1 INTRODUCTION TO CORPORATE FINANCE Answers to Concepts Review and Critical Thinking Questions 1 Capital budgeting deciding whether to expand a manufacturing plant capital structure deciding whether to issue new equity and use the proceeds to retire outstanding debt and working capital management modifying the rm s credit collection policy with its customers Disadvantages unlimited liability limited life dif culty in transferring ownership hard to raise capital funds Some advantages simpler less regulation the owners are also the managers sometimes personal tax rates are better than corporate tax rates The primary disadvantage of the corporate form is the double taxation to shareholders of distributed earnings and dividends Some advantages include limited liability ease of transferability ability to raise capital and unlimited life In response to SarbanesOxley small rms have elected to go dark because of the costs of compliance The costs to comply with Sarbox can be several million dollars which can be a large percentage of a small rms pro ts A major cost of going dark is less access to capital Since the rm is no longer publicly traded it can no longer raise money in the public market Although the company will still have access to bank loans and the private equity market the costs associated with raising funds in these markets are usually higher than the costs of raising funds in the public market The treasurer s office and the controller s office are the two primary organizational groups that report directly to the chief nancial of cer The controller s of ce handles cost and nancial accounting tax management and management information systems While the treasurer s of ce is responsible for cash and credit management capital budgeting and nancial planning Therefore the study of corporate nance is concentrated Within the treasury group s functions To maximize the current market value share price of the equity of the rm Whether it s publicly traded or not In the corporate form of ownership the shareholders are the owners of the rm The shareholders elect the directors of the corporation who in turn appoint the rm s management This separation of ownership from control in the corporate form of organization is what causes agency problems to exist Management may act in its own or someone else s best interests rather than those of the shareholders If such events occur they may contradict the goal of maximizing the share price of the equity of the rm A primary market transaction B p A p A p A N p n DJ p n J p A UI S OLUTT ONS In auction markets like the NYSE brokers and agents meet at a physical location the exchange to match buyers and sellers of assets Dealer markets like NASDAQ consist of dealers operating at dispersed locales who buy and sell assets themselves communicating with other dealers either electronically or literally overthecounter Such organizations frequently pursue social or political missions so many different goals are conceivable One goal that is often cited is revenue minimization ie provide whatever goods and services are offered at the lowest possible cost to society A better approach might be to observe that even a notforpro t business has equity Thus one answer is that the appropriate goal is to maximize the value of the equity Presumably the current stock value re ects the risk timing and magnitude of all future cash ows both shortterm and longterm If this is correct then the statement is false An argument can be made either way At the one extreme we could argue that in a market economy all of these things are priced There is thus an optimal level of for example ethical andor illegal behavior and the framework of stock valuation explicitly includes these At the other extreme we could argue that these are noneconomic phenomena and are best handled through the political process A classic and highly relevant thought question that illustrates this debate goes something like this A rm has estimated that the cost of improving the safety of one of its products is 30 million However the rm believes that improving the safety of the product will only save 20 million in product liability claims What should the rm do The goal will be the same but the best course of action toward that goal may be different because of differing social political and economic institutions The goal of management should be to maximize the share price for the current shareholders If management believes that it can improve the pro tability of the rm so that the share price will exceed 35 then they should ght the offer from the outside company If management believes that this bidder or other unidenti ed bidders will actually pay more than 35 per share to acquire the company then they should still ght the offer However if the current management cannot increase the value of the rm beyond the bid price and no other higher bids come in then management is not acting in the interests of the shareholders by ghting the offer Since current managers often lose their jobs when the corporation is acquired poorly monitored managers have an incentive to ght corporate takeovers in situations such as this We would expect agency problems to be less severe in countries with a relatively small percentage of individual ownership Fewer individual owners should reduce the number of diverse opinions concerning corporate goals The high percentage of institutional ownership might lead to a higher degree of agreement between owners and managers on decisions concerning risky projects In addition institutions may be better able to implement effective monitoring mechanisms on managers than can individual owners based on the institutions deeper resources and experiences with their own management The increase in institutional ownership of stock in the United States and the growing activism of these large shareholder groups may lead to a reduction in agency problems for US corporations and a more efficient market for corporate control CHAPTER 1 B3 16 How much is too much Who is worth more Ray Irani or Tiger Woods The simplest answer is that there is a market for executives just as there is for all types of labor Executive compensation is the price that clears the market The same is true for athletes and performers Having said that one aspect of executive compensation deserves comment A primary reason executive compensation has grown so dramatically is that companies have increasingly moved to stockbased compensation Such movement is obviously consistent with the attempt to better align stockholder and management interests In recent years stock prices have soared so management has cleaned up It is sometimes argued that much of this reward is simply due to rising stock prices in general not managerial performance Perhaps in the future executive compensation will be designed to reward only differential performance ie stock price increases in excess of general market increases CHAPTER 2 FINANCIAL STATEMENTS TAXES AND CASH FLOW Answers to Concepts Review and Critical Thinking Questions 1 Liquidity measures how quickly and easily an asset can be converted to cash without signi cant loss in value It s desirable for rms to have high liquidity so that they have a large factor of safety in meeting shortterm creditor demands However since liquidity also has an opportunity cost associated with itinamely that higher returns can generally be found by investing the cash into productive assetsilow liquidity levels are also desirable to the rm It s up to the rm s nancial management staff to nd a reasonable compromise between these opposing needs The recognition and matching principles in nancial accounting call for revenues and the costs associated with producing those revenues to be booked when the revenue process is essentially complete not necessarily when the cash is collected or bills are paid Note that this way is not necessarily correct it s the way accountants have chosen to do it Historical costs can be objectively and precisely measured whereas market values can be difficult to estimate and different analysts would come up with different numbers Thus there is a tradeoff between relevance market values and objectivity book values Depreciation is a noncash deduction that re ects adjustments made in asset book values in accordance with the matching principle in nancial accounting Interest expense is a cash outlay but it s a nancing cost not an operating cost Market values can never be negative Imagine a share of stock selling for 720 This would mean that if you placed an order for 100 shares you would get the stock along with a check for 2000 How many shares do you want to buy More generally because of corporate and individual bankruptcy laws net worth for a person or a corporation cannot be negative implying that liabilities cannot exceed assets in market value For a successful company that is rapidly expanding for example capital outlays will be large possibly leading to negative cash ow from assets In general what matters is whether the money is spent wisely not whether cash ow from assets is positive or negative It s probably not a good sign for an established company but it would be fairly ordinary for a start up so it depends For example if a company were to become more ef cient in inventory management the amount of inventory needed would decline The same might be true if it becomes better at collecting its receivables In general anything that leads to a decline in ending NWC relative to beginning would have this effect Negative net capital spending would mean more longlived assets were liquidated than purchased p n p A p A N CHAPTER 2 BS If a company raises more money from selling stock than it pays in dividends in a particular period its cash ow to stockholders will be negative If a company borrows more than it pays in interest its cash ow to creditors will be negative The adjustments discussed were purely accounting changes they had no cash ow or market value consequences unless the new accounting information caused stockholders to revalue the derivatives Enterprise value is the theoretical takeover price In the event of a takeover an acquirer would have to take on the company s debt but would pocket its cash Enterprise value differs signi cantly from simple market capitalization in several ways and it may be a more accurate representation of a rm s value In a takeover the value of a rm s debt would need to be paid by the buyer when taking over a company This enterprise value provides a much more accurate takeover valuation because it includes debt in its value calculation In general it appears that investors prefer companies that have a steady earnings stream If true this encourages companies to manage earnings Under GAAP there are numerous choices for the way a company reports its nancial statements Although not the reason for the choices under GAAP one outcome is the ability of a company to manage earnings which is not an ethical decision Even though earnings and cash ow are often related earnings management should have little effect on cash ow except for taX implications If the market is fooled and prefers steady earnings shareholder wealth can be increased at least temporarily However given the questionable ethics of this practice the company and shareholders will lose value if the practice is discovered Solutions to Questions and Problems NOTE All end of chapter problems were solved using a spreadsheet Many problems require multiple steps Due to space and readability constraints when these intermediate steps are included in this solutions manual rounding may appear to have occurred However the final answerfor each problem is found without rounding during any step

If inventory is purchased on credit then there is a decrease in the current ratio if it was initially greater than 10 Reducing accounts payable with cash increases the current ratio if it was initially greater than 10 Reducing shortterm debt with cash increases the current ratio if it was initially greater than 10 As longterm debt approaches maturity the principal repayment and the remaining interest expense become current liabilities Thus if debt is paid off with cash the current ratio increases if it was initially greater than 10 If the debt has not yet become a current liability then paying it off will reduce the current ratio since current liabilities are not affected Reduction of accounts receivables and an increase in cash leaves the current ratio unchanged Inventory sold at cost reduces inventory and raises cash so the current ratio is unchanged Inventory sold for a pro t raises cash in excess of the inventory recorded at cost so the current ratio increases 9 amp 00 2 The rm has increased inventory relative to other current assets therefore assuming current liability levels remain unchanged liquidity has potentially decreased 3 A current ratio of 050 means that the rm has twice as much in current liabilities as it does in current assets the rm potentially has poor liquidity If pressed by its shortterm creditors and suppliers for immediate payment the rm might have a dif cult time meeting its obligations A current ratio of 150 means the rm has 50 more current assets than it does current liabilities This probably represents an improvement in liquidity shortterm obligations can generally be met com pletely with a safety factor built in A current ratio of 150 however might be excessive Any excess funds sitting in current

rms in the same industry or line of business Comparing a rm to its peers allows the nancial manager to evaluate whether some aspects of the rm s operations nances or investment activities are out of line with the norm thereby providing some guidance on appropriate actions to take to adjust these ratios if appropriate An aspirant group would be a set of rms whose performance the company in question would like to emulate The nancial manager often uses the nancial ratios of aspirant groups as the target ratios for his or her rm some managers are evaluated by how well they match the performance of an identi ed aspirant group Return on equity is probably the most important accounting ratio that measures the bottomline performance of the rm with respect to the equity shareholders The Du Pont identity emphasizes the role of a rm s pro tability asset utilization efficiency and nancial leverage in achieving an ROE gure For example a rm with ROE of 20 would seem to be doing well but this gure may be misleading if it were marginally pro table low pro t margin and highly levered high equity multiplier If the rm s margins were to erode slightly the ROE would be heavily impacted The booktobill ratio is intended to measure whether demand is growing or falling It is closely followed because it is a barometer for the entire hightech industry where levels of revenues and earnings have been relatively volatile If a company is growing by opening new stores then presumably total revenues would be rising Comparing total sales at two different points in time might be misleading Samestore sales control for this by only looking at revenues of stores open within a speci c period a For an electric utility such as Con Ed eXpressing costs on a per kilowatt hour basis would be a way to compare costs with other utilities of different sizes b For a retailer such as Sears eXpressing sales on a per square foot basis would be useful in comparing revenue production against other retailers c For an airline such as Southwest eXpressing costs on a per passenger mile basis allows for comparisons with other airlines by examining how much it costs to y one passenger one mile CHAPTER 3 B17 d For an online service provider such as AOL using a per call basis for costs would allow for comparisons with smaller services A per subscriber basis would also make sense e For a hospital such as Holy Cross revenues and costs eXpressed on a per bed basis would be useful f For a college textbook publisher such as McGrawHillIrwin the leading publisher of nance textbooks for the college market the obvious standardization would be per book sold 11 Reporting the sale of Treasury securities as cash ow from operations is an accounting trick and as such should constitute a possible red ag about the companies accounting practices For most companies the gain from a sale of securities should be placed in the nancing section Including the sale of securities in the cash ow from operations would be acceptable for a nancial company such as an investment or commercial bank p A N Increasing the payables period increases the cash ow from operations This could be bene cial for the company as it may be a cheap form of nancing but it is basically a one time change The payables period cannot be increased inde nitely as it will negatively affect the company s credit rating if the payables period becomes too long Solutions to Questions and Problems NOTE All end of chapter problems were solved using a spreadsheet Many problems require multiple steps Due to space and

will be discussed in more detail in later chapters but this assumption is generally true Using the book value of assets assumes that the assets can be replaced at the current value on the balance sheet There are several reasons this assumption could be awed First in ation during the life of the assets can cause the book value of the assets to understate the market value of the assets Since assets are recorded at cost when purchased in ation means that it is more eXpensive to replace the assets Second improvements in technology could mean that the assets could be replaced with more productive and possibly cheaper assets If this is true the book value can overstate the market value of the assets Finally the book value of assets may not accurately represent the market value of the assets because of depreciation Depreciation is done according to some schedule generally straightline or MACRS Thus the book value and market value can often diverge CHAPTER 4 LONGTERM FINANCIAL PLANNING AND GROWTH Answers to Concepts Review and Critical Thinking Questions 1 N 03 P UI F The reason is that ultimately sales are the driving force behind a business A rm s assets employees and in fact just about every aspect of its operations and nancing exist to directly or indirectly support sales Put differently a rm s future need for things like capital assets employees inventory and nancing are determined by its future sales level Two assumptions of the sustainable growth formula are that the company does not want to sell new equity and that nancial policy is xed If the company raises outside equity or increases its debt equity ratio it can grow at a higher rate than the sustainable growth rate Of course the company could also grow faster than its pro t margin increases if it changes its dividend policy by increasing the retention ratio or its total asset turnover increases The internal growth rate is greater than 15 because at a 15 growth rate the negative EFN indicates that there is excess internal nancing If the internal growth rate is greater than 15 then the sustainable growth rate is certainly greater than 15 because there is additional debt nancing used in that case assuming the rm is not 100 equity nanced As the retention ratio is increased the rm has more internal sources of funding so the EFN will decline Conversely as the retention ratio is decreased the EFN will rise If the rm pays out all its earnings in the form of dividends then the rm has no internal sources of funding ignoring the effects of accounts payable the internal growth rate is zero in this case and the EFN will rise to the change in total assets The sustainable growth rate is greater than 20 because at a 20 growth rate the negative EFN indicates that there is excess nancing still available If the rm is 100 equity nanced then the sustainable and internal growth rates are equal and the internal growth rate would be greater than 20 However when the rm has some debt the internal growth rate is always less than the sustainable growth rate so it is ambiguous whether the internal growth rate would be greater than or less than 20 If the retention ratio is increased the rm will have more internal funding sources available and it will have to take on more debt to keep the debtequity ratio constant so the EFN will decline Conversely if the retention ratio is decreased the EFN will rise If the retention rate is zero both the internal and sustainable growth rates are zero and the EFN will rise to the change in total assets Presumably not but of course if the product had been much less popular then a similar fate would have awaited due to lack of sales Since customer39s did not pay until shipment receivables rose The rm s NWC but not its cash increased At the same time costs were rising faster than cash revenues so operating cash ow declined The rm s capital spending was also rising Thus all three components of cash ow from assets were negatively impacted B30 SOLUTIONS gt1 on 0 p n Apparently not In hindsight the rm may have underestimated costs and also underestimated the extra demand from the lower price Financing possibly could have been arranged if the company had taken quick enough action Sometimes it becomes apparent that help is needed only when it is too late again emphasizing the need for planning All three were important but the lack of cash or more generally nancial resources ultimately spelled doom An inadequate cash resource is usually cited as the most common cause of small business failure Demanding cash up front increasing prices subcontracting production and improving nancial resources Via new owners or new sources of credit are some of the options When orders exceed capacity price increases may be especially bene cial Solutions to Questions and Problems NOTE All end ofchapterproblems were solved using a spreadsheet Many problems require multiple steps Due to space and readability constraints

CHAPTER 4 B37 We rst must calculate the ROE to calculate the sustainable growth rate To do this we must realize two other relationships The total asset turnover is the inverse of the capital intensity ratio and the equity multiplier is 1 DE Using these relationships we get ROE 7 PMTATEM ROE 7 0821751 40 ROE 7 1531 or 1531 The plowback ratio is one minus the dividend payout ratio so b 7 1 7 12000

Intermediate To determine full capacity sales we divide the current sales by the capacity the company is currently using so Full capacity sales 550000 95 Full capacity sales 578947 The maXimum sales growth is the full capacity sales divided by the current sales so Maximum sales growth 578947 550000 7 1 Maximum sales growth 0526 or 526 B38 SOLUTIONS 17 p A on p A 0 To nd the new level of xed assets we need to nd the current percentage of xed assets to full capacity sales Doing so we nd Fixed assets Full capacity sales 440000 578947 Fixed assets Full capacity sales 76 Next we calculate the total dollar amount of xed assets needed at the new sales gure Total xed assets 76630000 Total xed assets 478800 The new xed assets necessary is the total xed assets at the new sales gure minus the current level of xed assts New xed assets 478800 7 440000 New xed assets 38800 We have all the variables to calculate ROE using the DuPont identity except the pro t margin Ifwe nd ROE we can solve the DuPont identity for pro t margin We can calculate ROE from the sustainable growth rate equation For this equation we need the retention ratio so b1730 b70 Using the sustainable growth rate equation and solving for ROE we get Sustainable growth rate ROE X b 1 7 ROE X b 12 ROE70 17 ROE70 ROE 1531 or 1531 Now we can use the DuPont identity to nd the pro t margin as ROE 7 PMTATEM 1531 7PM10751 120

Now we can use the DuPont identity to nd the equity multiplier as ROE PMTATEM 1473 0621 60EM EM 147360 062 EM 143 So the DE ratio is DE EM 7 1 DE 143 7 1 DE 043 We are given the pro t margin Remember that ROA PMTAT We can calculate the ROA from the internal growth rate formula and then use the ROA in this equation to nd the total asset turnover The retention ratio is b1725 b75 Using the internal

PMTAT 0872 05PM TAT 0872 05 TAT 174 times We should begin by calculating the DE ratio We calculate the DE ratio as follows Total debt ratio 65 TD TA Inverting both sides we get 1 65 TA TD NeXt we need to recognize that TA TD 1 TE TD Substituting this into the previous equation we get 1651TETD B40 SOLUTIONS N N Subtract 1 one from both sides and inverting again we get DE116571 DE 186 With the DE ratio we can calculate the EM and solve for ROE using the DuPont identity ROE PMTATEM ROE 0481251 186 ROE 1714 or 1714 Now we can calculate the retention ratio as b1730 b70 Finally putting all the numbers we have calculated into the sustainable growth rate equation we get Sustainable growth rate ROE X b 1 7 ROE X b Sustainable growth rate 171470 1 7 171470 Sustainable growth rate 1364 or 1364 To calculate the sustainable growth rate we rst must calculate the retention ratio and ROE The retention ratio is b 17 9300 817500 b 7 4686 And the ROE is ROE 17500 58000 ROE 3017 or 3017 So the sustainable growth rate is Sustainable growth rate ROE X b 1 7 ROE X b Sustainable growth rate 30174686 1 7 30174686 Sustainable growth rate 1647 or 1647 If the company grows at the sustainable growth rate the new level of total assets is New TA 1164786000 58000 16771084 To nd the new level of debt in the company s balance sheet we take the percentage of debt in the capital structure times the new

the additional borrowing will be Additional borrowing 10016004 7 86000 Additional borrowing 1416064 The growth rate that can be supported with no outside nancing is the internal growth rate To calculate the internal growth rate we rst need the ROA which is ROA 17500 86000 58000 ROA 1215 or 1215 This means the internal growth rate is Internal growth rate ROA X b 1 7 ROA X b Internal growth rate 12154686 1 7 12154686 Internal growth rate 0604 or 604 Since the company issued no new equity shareholders equity increased by retained earnings Retained earnings for the year were Retained earnings NI 7 Dividends Retained earnings 19000 7 2500 Retained earnings 16500 So the equity at the end of the year was Ending equity 135000 16500 Ending equity 151500 The ROE based on the end of period equity is ROE 19000 151500 ROE 1254 or 1254 The plowback ratio is Plowback ratio Addition to retained earningsNI Plowback ratio 16500 19000 Plowback ratio 8684 or 8684 Using the equation presented in the teXt for the sustainable growth rate we get Sustainable growth rate ROE X b 1 7 ROE X b Sustainable growth rate 125486841712548684 Sustainable growth rate 1222 or 1222 The ROE based on the beginning of period equity is ROE 16500 135000 ROE 1407 or 1407 B42 SOLUTIONS N 4 Using the shortened equation for the sustainable growth rate and the beginning of period ROE we get Sustainable growth rate ROE X b Sustainable growth rate 1407 X 8684 Sustainable growth rate 1222 or 1222 Using the shortened equation for the sustainable growth rate and the end of period ROE we get Sustainable growth rate ROE X b Sustainable growth rate 1254 X 8684 Sustainable growth rate 1089 or 1089 Using the end of period ROE in the shortened sustainable growth rate results in a growth rate that is too low This will always occur whenever the equity increases If equity increases the ROE based on end of period equity is lower than the ROE based on the beginning of period equity The ROE and sustainable growth rate in the abbreviated equation is based on equity that did not eXist when the net income was eame The ROA using end of period assets is ROA 19000 250000 ROA 0760 or 760 The beginning of period assets had to have been the ending assets minus the addition to retained earnings so Beginning assets Ending assets 7 Addition to retained earnings Beginning assets 250000 7 16500 Beginning assets 233500 And the ROA using beginning of period assets is ROA 19000 233500 ROA 0814 or 814 Using the internal growth rate equation presented in the teXt we get Internal growth rate ROA X b 1 7 ROA X b Internal growth rate 08148684 1 7 08148684 Internal growth rate 0707 or 707 Using the formula ROA X b and end of period assets Internal growth rate 0760 X 8684 Intemal growth rate 0660 or 660

Review and Critical Thinking Questions 1 The four parts are the present value PV the future value FV the discount rate r and the life of the investment t 2 Compounding refers to the growth of a dollar amount through time via reinvestment of interest earned It is also the process of determining the future value of an investment Discounting is the process of determining the value today of an amount to be received in the future 3 Future values grow assuming a positive rate of r39etum present values shrink 4 The future value rises assuming it s positive the present value falls 5 It would appear to be both deceptive and unethical to run such an ad Without a disclaimer or explanation 6 It s a re ection of the time value of money TMCC gets to use the 24099 If TMCC uses it wisely it will be worth more than 100000 in thirty years 7 This will probably make the security less desirable TMCC will only repurchase the security prior to maturity if it is to its advantage ie interest rates decline Given the drop in interest rates needed to make this viable for TMCC it is unlikely the company will repurchase the security This is an example of a call feature Such features are discussed at length in a later chapter 8 The key considerations would be 1 Is the rate of return implicit in the offer attractive relative to other similar risk investments and 2 How risky is the investment ie how certain are we that we will actually get the 100000 Thus our answer does depend on who is making the promise to repay 9 The Treasury security would have a somewhat higher price because the Treasury is the strongest of all borrowers 10 The price would be higher because as time passes the price of the security will tend to rise toward 100000 This rise is just a re ection of the time value of money As time passes the time until receipt of the 100000 grows shorter and the present value rises In 2019 the price will probably be higher for the same reason We cannot be sure however because interest rates could be much higher or TMCC s nancial position could deteriorate Either event would tend to depress the security s price B58 SOLUTIONS Solutions to Questions and Problems NOTE All end of

FLOW VALUATION Answers to Concepts Review and Critical Thinking Questions 1 The four pieces are the present value PV the periodic cash ow C the discount rate r and the number of payments or the life of the annuity t Assuming positive cash ows both the present and the future values will rise Assuming positive cash ows the present value will fall and the future value will rise It s deceptive but very common The basic concept of time value of money is that a dollar today is not worth the same as a dollar tomorrow The deception is particularly irritating given that such lotteries are usually government sponsored If the total money is xed you want as much as possible as soon as possible The team or more accurately the team owner wants just the opposite The better deal is the one with equal installments Yes they should APRs generally don t provide the relevant rate The only advantage is that they are easier to compute but with modern computing equipment that advantage is not very important A freshman does The reason is that the freshman gets to use the money for much longer before interest starts to accrue The subsidy is the present value on the day the loan is made of the interest that would have accrued up until the time it actually begins to accrue The problem is that the subsidy makes it easier to repay the loan not obtain it However ability to repay the loan depends on future employment not current need For example consider a student who is currently needy but is preparing for a career in a highpaying area such as corporate nance Should this student receive the subsidy How about a student who is currently not needy but is preparing for a relatively low paying job such as becoming a college professor CHAPTER 6 B69 10 In general viatical settlements are ethical In the case of a viatical settlement it is simply an exchange of cash today for payment in the future although the payment depends on the death of the seller The purchaser of the life insurance policy is bearing the risk that the insured individual will live longer than expected Although viatical settlements are ethical they may not be the best choice for an individual In a Business Week article October 31 2005 options were examined for a 72 year old male with a life expectancy of 8 years and a 1 million dollar life insurance policy with an annual premium of 37000 The four options were 1 Cash the policy today for 100000 2 Sell the policy in a viatical settlement for 275000 3 Reduce the death bene t to 375000 which would keep the policy in force for 12 years without premium payments 4 Stop paying premiums and don t reduce the death bene t This will run the cash value of the policy to zero in 5 years but the viatical settlement would be worth 475000 at that time If he died within 5 years the bene ciaries would receive 1 million Ultimately the decision rests on the individual on what they perceive as best for themselves The values that will affect the value of the viatical settlement are the discount rate the face value of the policy and the health of the individual selling the policy Solutions to Questions and Problems NOTE All end of chapter problems were

At a lower interest rate the total cash ow is more important since the cost of waiting the interest rate is not as great At a higher interest rate Y is more valuable since it has larger cash ows At

that the higher APR does not necessarily mean the higher EAR The number of compounding periods within a year will also affect the EAR The reported rate is the APR so we need to convert the EAR to an APR as follows EAR 1 APR m39quot 71 APR ml EAR1 quot 7 1 APR 365116 365 7 1 1485 or 1485 This is deceptive because the borrower is actually paying annualized interest of 16 per year not the 1485 reported on the loan contract For this problem we simply need to nd the FV of a lump sum using the equation FV PV1 r It is important to note that compounding occurs semiannually To account for this we will diVide the interest rate by two the number of compounding periods in a year and multiply the number of periods by two Doing so we get FV 21001 08423 850593 For this problem we simply need to nd the FV of a lump sum using the equation FV PV1 r It is important to note that compounding occurs daily To account for this we will diVide the interest rate by 365 the number of days in a year ignoring leap year and multiply the number of periods by 365 Doing so we get FV in 5 years 45001 0933655365 716364 FV in 10 years 45001 0933651 355 1140394 FV in 20 years 45001 0933652 365 2889997 B74

the previous problem the cash ows are monthly and the compounding period is monthly This assumption still holds Since the cash ows are annual we need to use the EAR to calculate the future value of annual cash ows It is important to remember that you have to make sure the compounding periods of the interest rate is the same as the timing of the cash ows In this case we have annual cash ows so we need the EAR since it is the true annual interest rate you will earn So nding the EAR EAR1APRmm71 EAR 1 101212 71 1047 or 1047 Using the FVA equation we get FVA C1 r 71r FVA 3600110473 7 1 1047

7 500000 50835 We need to nd the annuity payment in retirement Our retirement savings ends and the retirement withdrawals begin so the PV of the retirement withdrawals will be the FV of the retirement

19003763 withdrawal per month B78 SOLUTIONS 33 We need to nd the FV of a lump sum in one year and two years It is important that we use the number of months in compounding since interest is compounded monthly in this case So FV in one year 11011712 115 FV in two years 11011724 132 There is also another common alternative solution We could nd the EAR and use the number of years as our compounding periods So we will nd the EAR rst EAR 1 011712 7 1 1498 or 1498 Using the EAR and the number of years to nd the FV we get FV in one year 1114981 115 FV in two years 1114982 132 Either method is correct and acceptable We have simply made sure that the interest compounding period is the same as the number of periods we use to calculate the FV Here we are nding the annuity payment necessary to achieve the same FV The interest rate given is a 12 percent APR with monthly deposits We must make sure to use the number of months in the equation So using the FVA equation Starting today FVA C1 1212

length of time ie 20 years versus 40 years does not mean that the annuity payment is doubled In this example by reducing the savings period by onehalf the deposit necessary to achieve the same ending value is about twelve times as large Since we are looking to quadruple our money the PV and FV are irrelevant as long as the FV is three times as large as the PV The number of periods is four the number of quarters per year So FV 3 11 AU r3161 or 3161 36 DJ on CHAPTER 6 B79 Since we have an APR compounded monthly and an annual payment we must rst convert the interest rate to an EAR so that the

amount needed at retirement is the PV of the monthly spending plus the PV of the inheritance The PV of these two cash ows is PVA 200001 7 1 1 0678121225067812 288549645 Pv 900000 1 067812300 16582426 So at retirement he needs 288549645 16582426 305132071 He will be saving 2500 per month for the neXt 10 years until he purchases the cabin The value of his savings after 10 years will be FVA 2500 1 095712 1 71 095712 49965964 After he purchases the cabin the amount he will have left is 49965964 7 380000 11965964 He still has 20 years until retirement When he is ready to retire this amount will have grown to FV 1196596410957121220 80501023 So when he is ready to retire based on his current savings he will be short 3051320717 80501023 224631048 This amount is the FV of the monthly savings he must make between years 10 and 30 So nding the annuity payment using the FVA equation we nd his monthly savings will need to be FVA 224631048 C1 104812 2 7 1 104812 C 312744 To answer this question we should nd the PV of both options and compare them Since we are purchasing the car the lowest PV is the best option The PV of the leasing is simply the PV of the lease payments plus the 99 The interest rate we would use for the leasing option is the same as the interest rate of the loan The PV of leasing is PV 99 4501 7 1 1 0712 3 0712 1467291 The PV of purchasing the car is the current price of the car minus the PV of the resale price The PV of the resale price is PV 23000 1 071212 3 1865482 The PV of the decision to purchase is 3200071865482 1334518 B88 SOLUTIONS u 5 In this case it is cheaper to buy the car than leasing it since the PV of the purchase cash ows is lower To nd the breakeven resale price we need to nd the resale price that makes the PV of the two options the same In other words the PV of the decision to buy should be 32000 7 PV ofresale price 1467291 PV ofresale price 1732709 The resale price that would make the PV of the lease versus buy decision is the FV of this value so Breakeven resale price 17327091 0712 lt3 2136301 To nd the quarterly salary for the player we rst need to nd the PV of the current contract The cash ows for the contract are annual and we are given a daily interest rate We need to nd the EAR so the interest compounding is the same as the timing of the cash ows The EAR is EAR 1 055365365 7 1 565 The PV of the current contract offer is the sum of the PV of the cash ows So the PV is PV 7000000 450000010565 5000000105652 6000000105653 680000010565 7900000l05655 8800000105656 PV 3861048257 The player wants the contract increased in value by 1400000 so the PV of the new contract will be PV 3861048257 1400000 4001048257 The player has also requested a signing bonus payable today in the amount of 9 million We can simply subtract this amount from the PV of the new contract The remaining amount will be the PV of the future quarterly paychecks 4001048257 7 9000000 3101048257 To nd the quarterly payments rst realize that the interest rate we need is the effective quarterly rate Using the daily interest rate we can nd the quarterly interest rate using the EAR equation with the number of days being 9125 the number of days in a quarter 365 4 The effective quarterly rate is Effective quarterly rate 1 0553659125 7 1 01384 or 1384 Now we have the interest rate the length of the annuity and the PV Using the PVA equation and solving for the payment we get PVA 3101048257 C171101384 01384 C 152746376 60 5 p A CHAPTER 6 B89 To nd the APR and EAR we need to use the actual cash ows of the loan In other words the interest rate quoted in the problem is only relevant to determine the total interest under the terms given The cash ows of the loan are the 25000 you must repay in one year and the 21250 you borrow today The interest rate of the loan is 25000 212501 r r 25000 21250 7 1 1765 or 1765 Because of the discount you only get the use of 21250 and the interest you pay on that amount is 1765 not 15 Here we have cash ows that would have occurred in the past and cash ows that would occur in the future We need to bring both cash ows to today Before we calculate the value of the cash ows today we must adjust the interest rate so we have the effective monthly interest rate Finding the APR with monthly compounding and dividing by 12 will give us the effective monthly rate The APR with monthly compounding is APR 12108112 71 0772 or 772 To nd the value today of the back pay from two years ago we will nd the FV of the annuity and then nd the FV of the lump sum Doing so gives us FVA 4700012 1 07721212 7 1 077212 4869939 FV 4869939108 5259534 Notice we found the FV of the annuity with the effective monthly rate and then found the FV of the lump sum with the EAR Alternatively we could have found the FV of the lump sum with the effective monthly rate as long as we used 12 periods The answer would be the same either way Now we need to nd the value today of last year s back pay FVA 5000012 1 07721212 71077212 5180786 NeXt we nd the value today of the ve year s future salary PVA 7 55000121 7 1 1 077212125077212 22753914 The value today of the jury award is the sum of salaries plus the compensation for pain and suffering and court costs The award should be for the amount of Award 5259534 5180786 22753914 100000 20000 45194234 As the plaintiff you would prefer a lower interest rate In this problem we are calculating both the PV and FV of annuities A lower interest rate will decrease the FVA but increase the PVA So by a lower interest rate we are lowering the value of the back pay But we are also increasing the PV of the future salary Since the future salary is larger and has a longer time this is the more important cash ow to the plaintiff B90 SOLUTIONS 62 5 DJ 5 4 Again to nd the interest rate of a loan we need to look at the cash ows of the loan Since this loan is in the form of a lump sum the amount you will repay is the FV of the principal amount which will be Loan repayment amount 10000108 10800 The amount you will receive today is the principal amount of the loan times one minus the points Amount received 100001 7 03 9700 Now we simply nd the interest rate for this PV and FV 10800 97001 r r 10800 9700 7 1134 or 1134 This is the same question as before with different values So Loan repayment amount 10000111 11100 Amount received 100001 7 02 9800 11100 98001 r r 11100 9800 7 1 1327 or 1327 The effective rate is not affected by the loan amount since it drops out when solving for r First we will nd the APR and EAR for the loan with the refundable fee Remember we need to use the actual cash ows of the loan to nd the interest rate With the 2300 application fee you will need to borrow 242300 to have 240000 after deducting the fee Solving for the payment under these circumstances we get PVA 242300 C 1 7 110056673 005667 where 005667 06812 C 157961 We can now use this amount in the PVA equation with the original amount we wished to borrow 240000 Solving for r we nd PVA 240000 1579611 7 1 1 7 r360 r Solving for r with a spreadsheet on a nancial calculator or by trial and error gives r 05745 per month APR 1205745 689 EAR 1 7 00574512 7 1 712 UI GK CHAPTER6 B91 With the nonrefundable fee the APR of the loan is simply the quoted APR since the fee is not considered part of the loan So APR680 EAR 1 0681212 7 1 702 Be careful of interest rate quotations The actual interest rate of a loan is determined by the cash ows Here we are told that the PV of the loan is 1000 and the payments are 4115 per month for three years so the interest rate on the loan is PVA 1000 41151711 r36 r Solving for r with a spreadsheet on a nancial calculator or by trial and error gives r 230 per month APR 12230 2761 EAR 1 023012 71 3139 It s called addon interest because the interest amount of the loan is added to the principal amount of the loan before the loan payments are calculated Here we are solving a twostep time value of money problem Each question asks for a different possible cash ow to fund the same retirement plan Each savings possibility has the same FV that is the PV of the retirement spending when your friend is ready to retire The amount needed when your friend is ready to retire is PVA 1050001 7 11072 07 111237150 This amount is the same for all three parts of this question If your friend makes equal annual deposits into the account this is an annuity with the FVA equal to the amount needed in retirement The required savings each year will be 9 FVA 111237150 C1073 7 1 07 C 1177601 0 Here we need to nd a lump sum savings amount Using the FV for a lump sum equation we get Fv 111237150 PV1073 PV 14612904 B92 SOLUTIONS c In this problem we have a lump sum savings in addition to an annual deposit Since we already know the value needed at retirement we can subtract the value of the lump sum savings at retirement to nd out how much your friend is short Doing so gives us Fv of trust fund deposit 15000010710 29507270 So the amount your friend still needs at retirement is FV 111237150 7 29507270 81729880 Using the FVA equation and solving for the payment we get 81729880 7 C1073 7 1 07 C 865225 This is the total annual contribution but your friend s employer will contribute 1500 per year so your friend must contribute Friend s contribution 865225 7 1500 715225 67 We will calculate the number of periods necessary to repay the balance with no fee rst We simply need to use the PVA equation and solve for the number of payments Without fee and annual rate 1980 PVA 10000 2001 7 110165 0165 where 0165 19812 Solving for t we get

pay off 500000 The premiums are worth 24945256 more than the policy payoff Note we could also compare the PV of the two cash ows The PV of the premiums is Pv 900112 9001122 10001123 1000112 11001125 11001126 PV 404981 And the value today ofthe 500000 at age 65 is PV 50000010859 533296 PV 5332961126 270184 The premiums still have the higher cash ow At time zero the difference is 134797 Whenever you are comparing two or more cash ow streams the cash ow with the highest value at one time will have the highest value at any other time Here is a question for you Suppose you invest 134797 the difference in the cash ows at time zero for siX years at a 12 percent interest rate and then for 59 years at an 8 percent interest rate How much will it B94 SOLUTIONS 5 0 be worth Without doing calculations you know it will be worth 24945256 the difference in the cash ows at time 65 The monthly payments with a balloon payment loan are calculated assuming a longer amortization schedule in this case 30 years The payments based on a 30year repayment schedule would be PVA 7 750000 7 Cl 7 1 1 0811236 08112 C 555561 Now at time 8 we need to nd the PV of the payments which have not been made The balloon payment will be PVA 7 5555611 7 1 1 08112 08112 PVA 7 68370032 Here we need to nd the interest rate that makes the PVA the college costs equal to the FVA the savings The PV of the college costs are PVA 200001 7 1 1 rquot r And the FV of the saVings is FVA 90001 r6 71r Setting these two equations equal to each other we get 200001 7 1 1 r4 r 9000 1 r6 7 1 r Reducing the equation gives us

to nd the interest rate that makes us indifferent between an annuity and a perpetuity To solve this problem we need to nd the PV of the two options and set them equal to each other The PV of the perpetuity is PV 20000 r And the PV of the annuity is PVA 280001 7 1 1 r20 r N 03 CHAPTER 6 B95 Setting them equal and solving for r we get 20000 r 28000 1 7 1 1 r20 r 20000 28000 1 7 1 1 r20 7143 20 11 r r 0646 or 646 The cash ows in this problem occur every two years so we need to nd the effective two year rate One way to nd the effective two year rate is to use an equation similar to the EAR except use the number of days in two years as the exponent We use the number of days in two years since it is daily compounding if monthly compounding was assumed we would use the number of months in two years So the effective twoyear interest rate is Effective 2year rate 1 103653652 71 2214 or 2214 We can use this interest rate to nd the PV of the perpetuity Doing so we nd PV 15000 2214 6776007 This is an important point Remember that the PV equation for a perpetuity and an ordinary annuity tells you the PV one period before the rst cash ow In this problem since the cash ows are two years apart we have found the value of the perpetuity one period two years before the rst payment which is one year ago We need to compound this value for one year to nd the value today The value of the cash ows today is Pv 6776007l 10365365 7488544 The second part of the question assumes the perpetuity cash ows begin in four years In this case when we use the PV of a perpetuity equation we nd the value of the perpetuity two years from today So the value of these cash ows today is PV 6776007 l 2214 5547878 To solve for the PVA due PVAL C L 1r 1rZ 1r PVAdue CLWL 1r 1 rquot1 C C C PVAdue 1r 2 2 1

savings are increasing at 3 percent the percentage of salary will remain constant a The APR is the interest rate per week times 52 weeks in a year so APR 527 364 EAR 1 0752 71 327253 or 327353 b In a discount loan the amount you receive is lowered by the discount and you repay the full principal With a 7 percent discount you would receive 930 for every 10 in principal so the weekly interest rate

need to diagram the perpetuity cash ows which are Note the subscripts are only to differentiate when the cash ows begin The cash ows are all the same amount C3 C2 C2 C1 C1 C1 Thus each of the

The present value of this perpetuity is PV CR R CR2 So the present value equation of a perpetuity that increases by C each period is PV CR CR2 B 98 SOLUTIONS 77 l on We are only concerned with the

RATES AND BOND VALUATION Answers to Concepts Review and Critical Thinking Questions 1 No As interest rates uctuate the value of a Treasury security will uctuate Longterm Treasury securities have substantial interest rate risk All else the same the Treasury security will have lower coupons because of its lower default risk so it will have greater interest rate risk No If the bid price were higher than the ask price the implication would be that a dealer was willing to sell a bond and immediately buy it back at a higher price How many such transactions would you like to do Prices and yields move in opposite directions Since the bid price must be lower the bid yield must be higher There are two bene ts First the company can take advantage of interest rate declines by calling in an issue and replacing it with a lower coupon issue Second a company might wish to eliminate a covenant for some reason Calling the issue does this The cost to the company is a higher coupon A put provision is desirable from an investor s standpoint so it helps the company by reducing the coupon rate on the bond The cost to the company is that it may have to buy back the bond at an unattractive price Bond issuers look at outstanding bonds of similar maturity and risk The yields on such bonds are used to establish the coupon rate necessary for a particular issue to initially sell for par value Bond issuers also simply ask potential purchasers what coupon rate would be necessary to attract them The coupon rate is xed and simply determines what the bond s coupon payments will be The required return is what investors actually demand on the issue and it will uctuate through time The coupon rate and required return are equal only if the bond sells for exactly at par Yes Some investors have obligations that are denominated in dollars ie they are nominal Their primary concern is that an investment provide the needed nominal dollar amounts Pension funds for example often must plan for pension payments many years in the future If those payments are fixed in dollar terms then it is the nominal return on an investment that is important Companies pay to have their bonds rated simply because unrated bonds can be difficult to sell many large investors are prohibited from investing in unrated issues Treasury bonds have no credit risk since it is backed by the US government so a rating is not necessary Junk bonds often are not rated because there would be no point in an issuer paying a rating agency to assign its bonds a low rating it s like paying someone to kick you p n p A p A DJ p n J p A UI CHAPTER 7 B l 19 The term structure is based on pure discount bonds The yield curve is based on couponbearing issues Bond ratings have a subjective factor to them Split ratings re ect a difference of opinion among credit agencies As a general constitutional principle the federal government cannot tax the states without their consent if doing so would interfere with state government functions At one time this principle was thought to provide for the taxexempt status of municipal interest payments However modern court rulings make it clear that Congress can revoke the municipal exemption so the only basis now appears to be historical precedent The fact that the states and the federal government do not tax each other s securities is referred to as reciprocal immunity Lack of transparency means that a buyer or seller can t see recent transactions so it is much harder to determine what the best bid and ask prices are at any point in time Companies charge that bond rating agencies are pressuring them to pay for bond ratings When a company pays for a rating it has the opportunity to make its case for a particular rating With an unsolicited rating the company has no input A lOOyear bond looks like a share of preferred stock In particular it is a loan with a life that almost certainly exceeds the life of the lender assuming that the lender is an individual With a junk bond the credit risk can be so high that the borrower is almost certain to default meaning that the creditors are very likely to end up as part owners of the business In both cases the equity in disguise has a signi cant tax advantage Solutions to Questions and Problems NOTE All end of chapter problems were solved using a spreadsheet Many problems require multiple steps Due to space and readability constraints when these intermediate steps are included in this solutions manual rounding may appear to have occurred However the final answer for each problem is found without rounding during any step in the problem Basic The yield to maturity is the required rate of return on a bond expressed as a nominal annual interest rate For noncallable bonds the yield to maturity and required rate of return are interchangeable terms Unlike YTM and required return the coupon rate is not a return used as the interest rate in bond cash ow valuation but is a xed percentage of par over the life of the bond used to set the coupon payment amount For the example given the coupon rate on the bond is still 10 percent and the YTM is 8 percent Price and yield move in opposite directions if interest rates rise the price of the bond will fall This is because the xed coupon payments determined by the xed coupon rate are not as valuable when interest rates riseihence the price of the bond decreases B 120 SOLUTIONS NOT E Most problems do not explicitly list a par value for bonds Even though a bond can have any par value in general corporate bonds in the United States will have a par value of 1000 We will use this par value in all problems unless a different par value is explicitly stated 3 The price of any bond is the PV of the interest payment plus the PV of the par value Notice this problem assumes an annual coupon The price of the bond will be P 75l 7 ll 087510 0875 1000l l 08751 91889 We would like to introduce shorthand notation here Rather than write or type as the case may be the entire equation for the PV of a lump sum or the PVA equation it is common to abbreviate the equations as PVIFR l1 r which stands for Eresent yalue interest Eactor PVIFAM 1711 r r which stands for Eresent yalue Interest Eactor of an Annuity These abbreviations are short hand notation for the equations in which the interest rate and the number of periods are substituted into the equation and solved We will use this shorthand notation in remainder of the solutions key Here we need to find the YTM of a bond The equation for the bond price is P 934 90PVIFAR9 l000PVIFR79 Notice the equation cannot be solved directly for R Using a spreadsheet a financial calculator or trial and error we find R YTM 1015 If you are using trial and error to nd the YTM of the bond you might be wondering how to pick an interest rate to start the process First we know the YTM has to be higher than the coupon rate since the bond is a discount bond That still leaves a lot of interest rates to check One way to get a starting point is to use the following equation which will give you an approximation of the YTM Approximate YTM Annual interest payment Price difference from par Years to maturity Price Par value 2 Solving for this problem we get Approximate YTM 90 64 9 934 1000 2 1004 This is not the exact YTM but it is close and it will give you a place to start CHAPTER 7 B 121 Here we need to find the coupon rate of the bond All we need to do is to set up the bond pricing equation and solve for the coupon payment as follows P 1045 CPVIFA7 5 1000PVIF7 5mg Solving for the coupon payment we get C 8054 The coupon payment is the coupon rate times par value Using this relationship we get Coupon rate 8054 1000 0805 or 805 To find the price of this bond we need to realize that the maturity of the bond is 10 years The bond was issued one year ago with 11 years to maturity so there are 10 years left on the bond Also the coupons are semiannual so we need to use the semiannual interest rate and the number of semiannual periods The price of the bond is P 3450PVIFA3 mm 1000PVIF3 720 96510 Here we are finding the YTM of a semiannual coupon bond

payments are semiannual this is the semiannual interest rate The YTM is the APR of the bond so YTM 2 X 3837 767 Here we need to find the coupon rate of the bond All we need to do is to set up the bond

105960 Now that we have the price of the bond the bond price equation is P 105960 801711072 072 10001072 We can solve this equation for t as follows 1059601072 1111111072 7 111111 1000 11111 51511072 21570 1072 I log 21570 log 1072 1106 m 11 years The bond has 11 years to maturity CHAPTER 7 B 127 23 The bond has 14 years to maturity so the bond price equation is P 108960 36PVIFAR8 1000PVIFR728 Using a spreadsheet nancial calculator or trial and error we find R 3116 This is the semiannual interest rate so the YTM is YTM 2 x 3116 623 The current yield is the annual coupon payment divided by the bond price so Current yield 72 108960 0661 or 661 24 a b The bond price is the present value of the cash ows from a bond The YTM is the interest rate used in valuing the cash ows from a bond If the coupon rate is higher than the required return on a bond the bond will sell at a premium since it provides periodic income in the form of coupon payments in excess of that required by investors on other similar bonds If the coupon rate is lower than the required return on a bond the bond will sell at a discount since it provides insuf cient coupon payments compared to that required by investors on other similar bonds For premium bonds the coupon rate exceeds the YTM for discount bonds the YTM exceeds the coupon rate and for bonds selling at par the YTM is equal to the coupon rate Current yield is de ned as the annual coupon payment divided by the current bond price For premium bonds the current yield exceeds the YTM for discount bonds the current yield is less than the YTM and for bonds selling at par value the current yield is equal to the YTM In all cases the current yield plus the expected oneperiod capital gains yield of the bond must be equal to the required return 25 The price of a zero coupon bond is the PV of the par so a b P0 1000104550 11071 In one year the bond will have 24 years to maturity so the price will be P1 1000104548 12090 B 128 SOLUTIONS The interest deduction is the price of the bond at the end of the year minus the price at the beginning of the year so Year 1 interest deduction 12090 7 11071 1019 The price of the bond when it has one year left to maturity will be P24 100010452 91573 Year 24 interest deduction 1000 7 91573 8427 Previous IRS regulations required a straightline calculation of interest The total interest received by the bondholder is Total interest 1000 7 11071 88929 The annual interest deduction is simply the total interest divided by the maturity of the bond so the straightline deduction is Annual interest deduction 88929 25 3557 The company will prefer straightline methods when allowed because the valuable interest deductions occur earlier in the life of the bond The coupon bonds have an 8 coupon which matches the 8 required return so they will sell at par The number of bonds that must be sold is the amount needed divided by the bond price so Number of coupon bonds to sell 30000000 1000 30000 The number of zero coupon bonds to sell would be Price of zero coupon bonds 100010460 9506 Number of zero coupon bonds to sell 30000000 9506 315589 The repayment of the coupon bond will be the par value plus the last coupon payment times the number of bonds issued So Coupon bonds repayment 300001040 32400000 The repayment of the zero coupon bond will be the par value times the number of bonds issued so Zeroes repayment 3155891000 315588822 27 N on CHAPTER 7 B 129 c The total coupon payment for the coupon bonds will be the number bonds times the coupon payment For the cash ow of the coupon bonds we need to account for the tax deductibility of the interest payments To do this we will multiply the total coupon payment times one minus the tax rate So Coupon bonds 3000080li35 1560000 cash out ow Note that this is cash outflow since the company is making the interest payment For the zero coupon bonds the first year interest payment is the difference in the price of the zero at the end of the year and the beginning of the year The price of the zeroes in one year will be P1 1000l0458 10282 The year 1 interest deduction per bond will be this price minus the price at the beginning of the year which we found in part b so Year 1 interest deduction per bond 10282 7 9506 776 The total cash ow for the zeroes will be the interest deduction for the year times the number of zeroes sold times the tax rate The cash ow for the zeroes in year 1 will be Cash ows for zeroes in Year 1 31558977635 85680000 Notice the cash ow for the zeroes is a cash in ow This is because of the tax deductibility of the imputed interest expense That is the company gets to write off the interest expense for the year even though the company did not have a cash ow for the interest expense This reduces the company s tax liability which is a cash in ow During the life of the bond the zero generates cash in ows to the firm in the form of the interest tax shield of debt We should note an important point here If you nd the PV of the cash ows from the coupon bond and the zero coupon bond they will be the same This is because of the much larger repayment amount for the zeroes We found the maturity of a bond in Problem 22 However in this case the maturity is indeterminate A bond selling at par can have any length of maturity In other words when we solve the bond pricing equation as we did in Problem 22 the

Assuming 1000 par value the call value is 11973 In general this is not likely to happen although it can and did The reason this bond has a negative YTM is that it is a callable US Treasury bond Market participants know this Given the high coupon rate of the bond it is extremely likely to be called which means the bondholder will not receive all the cash ows promised A better measure of the return on a callable bond is the yield to call YTC The YTC calculation is the basically the same as the YTM calculation but the number of periods is the number of periods until the call date If the YTC were calculated on this bond it would be positive To nd the present value we need to find the real weekly interest rate To nd the real return we need to use the effective annual rates in the Fisher equation So we nd the real EAR is 1 R 1 r1 11 1 084 1 r1 037 r 0453 or 453 Now to nd the weekly interest rate we need to nd the APR Using the equation for discrete compounding EAR 1 APRm39quot71 We

VALUATION Answers to Concepts Review and Critical Thinking Questions 1 p A O The value of any investment depends on the present value of its cash ows ie what investors will actually receive The cash ows from a share of stock are the dividends Investors believe the company will eventually start paying dividends or be sold to another company In general companies that need the cash will often forgo dividends since dividends are a cash expense Young growing companies with pro table investment opportunities are one example another example is a company in nancial distress This question is examined in depth in a later chapter The general method for valuing a share of stock is to nd the present value of all expected future dividends The dividend growth model presented in the text is only valid i if dividends are expected to occur forever that is the stock provides dividends in perpetuity and ii if a constant growth rate of dividends occurs forever A Violation of the rst assumption might be a company that is expected to cease operations and dissolve itself some finite number of years from now The stock of such a company would be valued by applying the general method of valuation explained in this chapter A Violation of the second assumption might be a startup firm that isn t currently paying any dividends but is expected to eventually start making dividend payments some number of years from now This stock would also be valued by the general dividend valuation method explained in this chapter The common stock probably has a higher price because the dividend can grow whereas it is xed on the preferred However the preferred is less risky because of the dividend and liquidation preference so it is possible the preferred could be worth more depending on the circumstances The two components are the dividend yield and the capital gains yield For most companies the capital gains yield is larger This is easy to see for companies that pay no dividends For companies that do pay dividends the dividend yields are rarely over ve percent and are often much less Yes If the dividend grows at a steady rate so does the stock price In other words the dividend growth rate and the capital gains yield are the same In a corporate election you can buy votes by buying shares so money can be used to in uence or even determine the outcome Many would argue the same is true in political elections but in principle at least no one has more than one vote It wouldn t seem to be Investors who don t like the voting features of a particular class of stock are under no obligation to buy it Investors buy such stock because they want it recognizing that the shares have no voting power Presumably investors pay a little less for such shares than they would otherwise B 142 SOLUTIONS p n p A Presumably the current stock value re ects the risk timing and magnitude of all future cash ows both shortterm and longterm If this is correct then the statement is false If this assumption is violated the twostage dividend growth model is not valid In other words the price calculated will not be correct Depending on the stock it may be more reasonable to assume that the dividends fall from the high growth rate to the low perpetual growth rate over a period of years rather than in one year Solutions to Questions and Problems NOTE All end of chapter problems were solved using a spreadsheet Many problems require multiple steps Due to space and readability constraints when these intermediate steps are included in this solutions manual rounding may appear to have occurred However the final answer for each problem is found without rounding during any step in the problem m The constant dividend growth model is P2D2X1gRg So the price of the stock today is P0 D0 1 g R 7g 195 106 11 706 4134 The dividend at year 4 is the dividend today times the FVIF for the growth rate in dividends and four years so P3 D3 1 g R 7g Do 1 g4 Rig 195 106411706 4924 We can do the

stock price grows at the dividend growth rate So if we know the stock price today we can find the future value for any time in the future we want to calculate the stock price In this problem we want to know the stock price in three years and we have already calculated the stock price today The stock price in three years will be P3 P01 g3 41341063 4924 And the stock price in 15 years will be P15 P01 g 413410615 9907 We need to nd the required return of the stock Using the constant growth model we can solve the equation for R Doing so we nd R DIP0 g 210 4800 05 0938 or 938 CHAPTER 8 B 143 The dividend yield is the dividend next year divided by the current price so the dividend yield is Dividend yield D1 P0 210 4800 0438 or 438 The capital gains yield or percentage increase in the stock price is the same as the dividend growth rate so Capital gains yield 5 Using the constant growth model we nd the price of the stock today is P0 D1 R 7g 304 11 7 038 4222 The required return of a stock is made up of two parts The dividend yield and the capital gains yield So the required return of this stock is R Dividend yield Capital gains yield 063 052 1150 or 1150 We know the stock has a required return of 11 percent and the dividend and capital gains yield are equal so Dividend yield 1211 055 Capital gains yield Now we know both the dividend yield and capital gains yield The dividend is simply the stock price times the dividend yield so D1 05547 259 This is the dividend next year The question asks for the dividend this year Using the relationship between the dividend this year and the dividend next year D1 D01 g We can solve for the dividend that was just paid 259 D01 055 D0 259 1055 245 The price of any nancial instrument is the PV of the future cash ows The future dividends of this stock are an annuity for 11 years so the price of the stock is the PVA which will be P0 975PVIFA10711 6333 The price a share of preferred stock is the dividend divided by the required return This is the same equation as the constant growth model with a dividend growth rate of zero percent Remember most preferred stock pays a xed dividend so the growth rate is zero Using this equation we nd the price per share of the preferred stock is R DPo 550108 0509 or 509 B 144 SOLUTIONS 9 O 1 We can use the constant dividend growth model which is PDx1gR7g So the price of each company s stock today is 235 08 7 05 7833 235 11705 3917 235 147 05 2611 Red stock price Yellow stock price Blue stock price As the required return increases the stock price decreases This is a function of the time value of money A higher discount rate decreases the present value of cash ows It is also important to note that relatively small changes in the required return can have a dramatic impact on the stock price Intermediate This stock has a constant growth rate of dividends but the required return changes twice To nd the value of the stock today we will begin by nding the price of the stock at Year 6

payback period less than the project s life means that the NPV is positive for a zero discount rate but nothing more de nitive can be said For discount rates greater than zero the payback period will still be less than the project s life but the NPV may be positive zero or negative depending on whether the discount rate is less than equal to or greater than the IRR The discounted payback includes the effect of the relevant discount rate If a project s discounted payback period is less than the project s life it must be the case that NPV is positive If a project has a positive NPV for a certain discount rate then it will also have a positive NPV for a zero discount rate39 thus the payback period must be less than the project life Since discounted payback is calculated at the same discount rate as is NPV if NPV is positive the discounted payback period must be less than the project s life IfNPV is positive then the present value of future cash in ows is greater than the initial investment cost thus PI must be greater than 1 If NPV is positive for a certain discount rate R then it will be zero for some larger discount rate R thus the IRR must be greater than the required return a Payback period is simply the accounting breakeven point of a series of cash ows To actually compute the payback period it is assumed that any cash ow occurring during a given period is realized continuously throughout the period and not at a single point in time The payback is then the point in time for the series of cash ows when the initial cash outlays are fully recovered Given some predetermined cutoff for the payback period the decision rule is to accept projects that payback before this cutoff and reject projects that take longer to payback b The worst problem associated with payback period is that it ignores the time value of money In addition the selection of a hurdle point for payback period is an arbitrary exercise that lacks any steadfast rule or method The payback period is biased towards shortterm projects it fully ignores any cash ows that occur after the cutoff point 0 Despite its shortcomings payback is often used because 1 the analysis is straightforward and simple and 2 accounting numbers and estimates are readily available Materiality considerations often warrant a payback analysis as suf cient maintenance projects are another example where the detailed analysis of other methods is often not needed Since payback is biased towards liquidity it may be a useful and appropriate analysis method for shortterm projects where cash management is most important a The discounted payback is calculated the same as is regular payback with the exception that each cash ow in the series is first converted to its present value Thus discounted payback provides a measure of financialeconomic breakeven because of this discounting just as regular payback provides a measure of accounting breakeven because it does not discount the cash ows Given some predetermined cutoff for the discounted payback period the decision rule is to accept projects whose discounted cash ows payback before this cutoff period and to reject all other projects B 154 SOLUTIONS b The primary disadvantage to using the discounted payback method is that it ignores all cash ows that occur after the cutoff date thus biasing this criterion towards shortterm projects As a result the method may reject projects that in fact have positive NPVs or it may accept projects with large future cash outlays resulting in negative NPVs In addition the selection of a cutoff point is again an arbitrary exercise 0 Discounted payback is an improvement on regular payback because it takes into account the time value of money For conventional cash ows and strictly positive discount rates the discounted payback will always be greater than the regular payback period 5 a The average accounting return is interpreted as an average measure of the accounting performance of a project over time computed as some average pro t measure attributable to the project divided by some average balance sheet value for the project This text computes AAR as average net income with respect to average total book value Given some predetermined cutoff for AAR the decision rule is to accept projects with an AAR in excess of the target measure and reject all other projects b AAR is not a measure of cash ows and market value but a measure of nancial statement accounts that often bear little resemblance to the relevant value of a project In addition the selection of a cutoff is arbitrary and the time value of money is ignored For a nancial manager both the reliance on accounting numbers rather than relevant market data and the exclusion of time value of money considerations are troubling Despite these problems AAR continues to be used in practice because 1 the accounting information is usually available 2 analysts often use accounting ratios to analyze rm performance and 3 managerial compensation is often tied to the attainment of certain target accounting ratio goals 6 a NPV is simply the present value of a project s cash ows NPV speci cally measures after considering the time value of money the net increase or decrease in rm wealth due to the project The decision rule is to accept projects that have a positive NPV and reject projects with a negative b NPV is superior to the other methods of analysis presented in the text because it has no serious aws The method unambiguously ranks mutually exclusive projects and can differentiate between projects of different scale and time horizon The only drawback to NPV is that it relies on cash ow and discount rate values that are often estimates and not certain but this is a problem shared by the other performance criteria as well A project with NPV 2500 implies that the total shareholder wealth of the firm will increase by 2500 if the project is accepted 7 a The IR is the discount rate that causes the NPV of a series of cash ows to be exactly zero IRR can thus be interpreted as a nancial breakeven rate of return at the IRR the net value of the project is zero The IR decision rule is to accept projects with IRS greater than the discount rate and to reject projects with IRS less than the discount rate b IR is the interest rate that causes NPV for a series of cash ows to be zero NPV is preferred in all situations to IR IRR can lead to ambiguous results if there are nonconventional cash ows and it also ambiguously ranks some mutually exclusive projects However for standalone projects with conventional cash ows IR and NPV are interchangeable techniques C IR is frequently used because it is easier for many nancial managers and analysts to rate performance in relative terms such as 12 than in absolute terms such as 46000 IRR may be a preferred method to NPV in situations where an appropriate discount rate is unknown are uncertain in this situation IRR would provide more information about the project than would V O p A N CHAPTER 9 B 155 a The pro tability index is the present value of cash in ows relative to the project cost As such it is a bene tcost ratio providing a measure of the relative pro tability of a project The pro tability index decision rule is to accept projects with a PI greater than one and to reject projects with a PI less than one b PI NPV costcost l NPVcost If a rm has a basket of positive NPV projects and is subject to capital rationing PI may provide a good ranking measure of the projects indicating the bang for the buck of each particular project For a project with future cash ows that are an annuity Payback I C And the IR is 0 71 C IRR Solving the IRR equation for IRR we get IRR C I Notice this is just the reciprocal of the payback So IRR l PB For longlived projects with relatively constant cash ows the sooner the project pays back the greater is the IRR There are a number of reasons Two of the most important have to do with transportation costs and exchange rates Manufacturing in the US places the finished product much closer to the point of sale resulting in signi cant savings in transportation costs It also reduces inventories because goods spend less time in transit Higher labor costs tend to offset these savings to some degree at least compared to other possible manufacturing locations Of great importance is the fact that manufacturing in the US means that a much higher proportion of the costs are paid in dollars Since sales are in dollars the net effect is to immunize profits to a large extent against uctuations in exchange rates This issue is discussed in greater detail in the chapter on intemational nance The single biggest dif culty by far is coming up with reliable cash ow estimates Determining an appropriate discount rate is also not a simple task These issues are discussed in greater depth in the next several chapters The payback approach is probably the simplest followed by the AAR but even these require revenue and cost projections The discounted cash ow measures discounted payback NPV IRR and pro tability index are really only slightly more difficult in practice Yes they are Such entities generally need to allocate available capital ef ciently just as forpro ts do However it is frequently the case that the revenues from notforpro t ventures are not tangible For example charitable giving has real opportunity costs but the bene ts are generally hard to measure To the extent that bene ts are measurable the question of an appropriate required return remains Payback rules are commonly used in such cases Finally realistic costbene t analysis along the lines indicated should definitely be used by the US government and would go a long way toward balancing the budget B 156 SOLUTIONS 13 p A J p A UI The MIRR is calculated by finding the present value of all cash out ows the future value of all cash in ows to the end of the project and then calculating the IRR of the two cash ows As a result the cash ows have been discounted or compounded by one interest rate the required return and then the interest rate between the two remaining cash ows is calculated As such the MIRR is not a true interest rate In contrast consider the IRR If you take the initial investment and calculate the future value at the IRR you can replicate the future cash ows of the project exactly The statement is incorrect It is true that if you calculate the future value of all intermediate cash ows to the end of the project at the required return then calculate the NPV of this future value and the initial investment you will get the same NPV However NPV says nothing about reinvestment of intermediate cash ows The NPV is the present value of the project cash ows What is actually done with those cash ows once they are generated is not relevant Put differently the value of a project depends on the cash ows generated by the project not on the future value of those cash ows The fact that the reinvestment works only if you use the required return as the reinvestment rate is also irrelevant simply because reinvestment is not relevant in the rst place to the value of the project One caveat Our discussion here assumes that the cash ows are truly available once they are generated meaning that it is up to rm management to decide what to do with the cash ows In certain cases there may be a requirement that the cash flows be reinvested For example in international investing a company may be required to reinvest the cash ows in the country in which they are generated and not repatriate the money Such funds are said to be blocked and reinvestment becomes relevant because the cash ows are not truly available The statement is incorrect It is true that if you calculate the future value of all intermediate cash ows to the end of the project at the IRR then calculate the IRR of this future value and the initial investment you will get the same IRR However as in the previous question what is done with the cash ows once they are generated does not affect the IRR Consider the following example C1 Q IRR 10 110 10 C0 Project A 7100 Suppose this 100 is a deposit into a bank account The IR of the cash ows is 10 percent Does the IRR change if the Year 1 cash ow is reinvested in the account or if it is withdrawn and spent on pizza No Finally consider the yield to maturity calculation on a bond If you think about it the YTM is the IRR on the bond but no mention of a reinvestment assumption for the bond coupons is suggested The reason is that reinvestment is irrelevant to the YTM calculation in the same way reinvestment is irrelevant in the IRR calculation Our caveat about blocked funds applies here as well CHAPTER 9 B 157 Solutions to Questions and Problems NOTE All end of chapter problems were solved using a spreadsheet Many problems require multiple steps Due to space and readability constraints when these intermediate steps are included in this solutions manual rounding may appear to have occurred However the final answer for each problem is found without rounding during any step in the problem Basic 1 To calculate the payback period we need to nd the time that the project has recovered its initial investment After three years the project has created 1600 1900 2300 5800 in cash ows The project still needs to create another 6400 7 5800 600 in cash ows During the fourth year the cash ows from the project will be 1400 So the payback period will be 3 years plus what we still need to make divided by what we will make during the fourth year The payback period is Payback 3 600 1400 343 years 2 To calculate the payback period we need to nd the time that the project has recovered its initial investment The cash ows in this problem are an annuity so the calculation is simpler If the initial cost is 2400 the payback period is Payback 3 105 765 314 years There is a shortcut to calculate the future cash ows are an annuity Just divide the initial cost by the annual cash ow For the 2400 cost the payback period is Payback 2400 765 314 years For an initial cost of 3600 the payback period is Payback 3600 765 471 years The payback period for an initial cost of 6500 is a little trickier Notice that the total cash in ows after eight years will be Total cash in ows 8765 6120 If the initial cost is 6500 the project never pays back Notice that if you use the shortcut for annuity cash ows you get Payback 6500 765 850 years This answer does not make sense since the cash ows stop after eight years so again we must conclude the payback period is never B158 SOLUTIONS 3 Project Ahas cash ows of 19000 in Year 1 so the cash ows are short by 21000 of recapturing the initial investment so the payback for Project A is Payback 1 21000 25000 184 years Project B has cash ows of Cash ows 7 14000 17000 24000 7 55000 during this rst three years The cash ows are still short by 5000 of recapturing the initial investment so the payback for Project B is B Payback 3 5000 270000 3019 years Using the payback criterion and a cutoff of 3 years accept project A and reject project B 4 When we use discounted payback we need to nd the value of all cash ows today The value today of the project cash ows for the rst four years is Value today of Year 1 cash ow 4200114 368421 Value today of Year 2 cash ow 53001142 407818 Value today of Year 3 cash ow 61001143 411733 Value today of Year 4 cash ow 74001144 438139 To nd the discounted payback we use these values to nd the payback period The discounted rst year cash ow is 368421 so the discounted payback for a 7000 initial cost is Discounted payback 1 7000 7 368421407818 181 years For an initial cost of 10000 the discounted payback is Discounted payback 2 10000 7 3684217 407818411733 254 years Notice the calculation of discounted payback We know the payback period is between two and three years so we subtract the discounted values

because the IRR criterion has a ranking problem for mutually exclusive projects To see if the IRR decision rule is correct or not we need to evaluate the project NPVs The NPV of Project A is vaA 43000

IRRs the IRR decision rule is ambiguous Both IRRs are correct that is both interest rates make the NPV of the project equal to zero If we are evaluating whether or not to accept this project we would not want to use the IRR to make our decision 15 The pro tability index is de ned as the PV of the cash in ows diVided by the PV of the cash outflows 16 The equation for the pro tability index at a

Thinking Questions 1 In this context an opportunity cost refers to the value of an asset or other input that will be used in a project The relevant cost is what the asset or input is actually worth today not for example what it cost to acquire For tax purposes a rm would choose MACRS because it provides for larger depreciation deductions earlier These larger deductions reduce taxes but have no other cash consequences Notice that the choice between MACRS and straightline is purely a time value issue the total depreciation is the same only the timing differs It s probably only a mild oversimpli cation Current liabilities will all be paid presumably The cash portion of current assets will be retrieved Some receivables won t be collected and some inventory will not be sold of course Counterbalancing these losses is the fact that inventory sold above cost and not replaced at the end of the proj ect s life acts to increase working capital These effects tend to offset one another Management s discretion to set the rm s capital structure is applicable at the rm level Since any one particular project could be nanced entirely with equity another project could be nanced with debt and the rm s overall capital structure remains unchanged nancing costs are not relevant in the analysis of a project s incremental cash ows according to the standalone principle The EAC approach is appropriate when comparing mutually exclusive projects with different lives that will be replaced when they wear out This type of analysis is necessary so that the projects have a common life span over which they can be compared in effect each project is assumed to exist over an infinite horizon of Nyear repeating projects Assuming that this type of analysis is valid implies that the project cash ows remain the same forever thus ignoring the possible effects of among other things 1 in ation 2 changing economic conditions 3 the increasing unreliability of cash ow estimates that occur far into the future and 4 the possible effects of future technology improvement that could alter the project cash ows Depreciation is a noncash expense but it is taxdeductible on the income statement Thus depreciation causes taxes paid an actual cash outflow to be reduced by an amount equal to the depreciation tax shield th A reduction in taxes that would otherwise be paid is the same thing as a cash in ow so the effects of the depreciation tax shield must be added in to get the total incremental aftertax cash ows There are two particularly important considerations The rst is erosion Will the essentialized book simply displace copies of the existing book that would have otherwise been sold This is of special concern given the lower price The second consideration is competition Will other publishers step in and produce such a product If so then any erosion is much less relevant A particular concern to book publishers and producers of a variety of other product types is that the publisher only makes money B 178 SOLUTIONS p A O from the sale of new books Thus it is important to examine whether the new book would displace sales of used books good from the publisher s perspective or new books not good The concern arises any time there is an active market for used product Definitely The damage to Porsche s reputation is definitely a factor the company needed to consider If the reputation was damaged the company would have lost sales of its existing car lines One company may be able to produce at lower incremental cost or market better Also of course one of the two may have made a mistake Porsche would recognize that the outsized pro ts would dwindle as more product comes to market and competition becomes more intense Solutions to Questions and Problems NOTE All end of chapter problems were solved using a spreadsheet Many problems require multiple steps Due to space and readability constraints when these intermediate steps are included in this solutions manual rounding may appear to have occurred However the final answer for each problem is found without rounding during any step in the problem Basic The 6 million acquisition cost of the land six years ago is a sunk cost The 64 million current aftertax value of the land is an opportunity cost if the land is used rather than sold off The 142 million cash outlay and 890000 grading expenses are the initial fixed asset investments needed to get the project going Therefore the proper year zero cash ow to use in evaluating this project is 6400000 14200000 890000 21490000 Sales due solely to the new product line are 1900013000 247000000 Increased sales of the motor home line occur because of the new product line introduction thus 450053000 238500000 in new sales is relevant Erosion of luxury motor coach sales is also due to the new midsize campers thus 90091000 81900000 loss in sales is relevant The net sales gure to use in evaluating the new line is thus 247000000 238500000 7 81900000 403600000 3 We need to construct a basic income statement The income statement is Sales 830000 Variable costs 498000 Fixed costs 181000 Depreciation 77000 EBT 74000 Taxes3 5 25900

kilowatt hour is 1000 watts for 1 hour A 60watt bulb burning for 500 hours per year uses 2 5 30000 watt hours or 30 kilowatt hours Since the cost of a kilowatt hour is 0101 the cost per year is Cost per year 300 101 Cost per year 303 The 60watt bulb will last for 1000 hours which is 2 years of use at 500 hours per year So the NPV of the 60watt bulb is NPV 7050 7 303PVIFA1072 NPV 7576 And the EAC is EAC 7583 PVIFAIOWZ EAC 7332 Now we can nd the EAC for the 15watt CFL A 15watt bulb burning for 500 hours per year uses 7500 watts or 75 kilowatts And since the cost ofa kilowatt hour is 0101 the cost per year is Cost per year 750101 Cost per year 07575 The 15watt CFL will last for 12000 hours which is 24 years of use at 500 hours per year So the NPV of the CFL is NPV 7350 7 07575PVIFA10J4 NPV 71031 And the EAC is EAC 1085 Pym110 EAC 115 Thus the CFL is much cheaper But see our next two questions To solve the EAC algebraically for each bulb we can set up the variables as follows W light bulb wattage C cost per kilowatt hour H hours burned per year P price the light bulb The number of watts use by the bulb per hour is WPH W 1000 And the kilowatt hours used per year is KPYWPHXH B 190 SOLUTIONS The electricity cost per year is therefore ECY KPY X C The NPV of the decision to but the light bulb is NPV 7 P 7 ECYPVIFAR7 And the EAC is EAC NPV PVIFARW Substituting we get EAC 7P 7 W 1000 X H X CPVIFAR7 PFIVAMJ We need to set the EAC of the two light bulbs equal to each other and solve for C the cost per kilowatt hour Doing so we nd 7050 7 60 1000 X 500 X CPVIFA102 PVIFAIOWZ 45350 715 1000 X 500 X CPVIFA1024 PVIFA10YZ4 C 0004509 So unless the cost per kilowatt hour is extremely low it makes sense to use the CFL But when should you replace the incandescent bulb See the next question We are again solving for the breakeven kilowatt hour cost but now the incandescent bulb has only 500 hours of useful life In this case the incandescent bulb has only one year of life left The breakeven electricity cost under these circumstances is 050 7 60 1000 x 500 x CPVIFA1071 Pv1FAw1 7 350 715 1000 x 500 x CPVIFA1024 Pv1FAmz C 70007131 Unless the electricity cost is negative Not very likely it does not make financial sense to replace the incandescent bulb until it burns out 28 The debate between incandescent bulbs and CFLs is not just a nancial debate but an environmental one as well The numbers below correspond to the numbered items in the question 1 The extra heat generated by an incandescent bulb is waste but not necessarily in a heated structure especially in northern climates 2 Since CFLs last so long from a nancial viewpoint it might make sense to wait if prices are declining 3 Because of the nontrivial health and disposal issues CFLs are not as attractive as our previous analysis suggests 0 CHAPTER 10 B 191 4 From a company s perspective the cost of replacing working incandescent bulbs may outweigh the nancial benefit However since CFLs last longer the cost of replacing the bulbs will be lower in the long run 5 Because incandescent bulbs use more power more coal has to be burned which generates more mercury in the environment potentially offsetting the mercury concern with CFLs 6 As in the previous question if C02 production is an environmental concern the the lower power consumption from CFLs is a bene t 7 CFLs require more energy to make potentially offsetting at least partially the energy savings from their use Worker safety and site contamination are also negatives for CFLs 8 This fact favors the incandescent bulb because the purchasers will only receive part of the bene t from the CFL 9 This fact favors waiting for new technology 10 This fact also favors waiting for new technology While there is always a best answer this question shows that the analysis of the best answer is not always easy and may not be possible because of incomplete data As for how to better legislate the use of CFLs our analysis suggests that requiring them in new construction might make sense Rental properties in general should probably be required to use CFLs why rentals Another piece of legislation that makes sense is requiring the producers of CFLs to supply a disposal kit and proper disposal instructions with each one sold Finally we need much better research on the hazards associated with broken bulbs in the home and workplace and proper procedures for dealing with broken bulbs Surprise You should de nitely upgrade the truck Here s why At 10 mpg the truck burns 12000 10 1200 gallons of gas per year The new truck will burn 12000 125 960 gallons of gas per year a savings of 240 gallons per year The car burns 12000 25 480 gallons of gas per year while the new car will burn 12000 40 300 gallons of gas per year a savings of 180 gallons per year so it s not even close This answer may strike you as counterintuitive so let s consider an extreme case Suppose the car gets 6000 mpg and you could upgrade to 12000 mpg Should you upgrade Probably not since you would only save one gallon of gas per year So the reason you should upgrade the truck is that it uses so much more gas in the rst place Notice that the answer doesn t depend on the cost of gasoline meaning that if you upgrade you should always upgrade the truck In fact it doesn t depend on the miles driven as long as the miles driven are the same B 192

The capital spending on equipment and investment in net working capital are cash out ows are both cash out ows The aftertax selling price of the land is also a cash out ow Even though no cash is actually spent on the land because the company already owns it the aftertax cash ow from selling the land is an opportunity cost so we need to include it in the analysis The company can sell the land at the end of the project so we need to include that value as well With all the project cash ows we can calculate the NPV which is NPV 75825000 1583839 113 2213480 1132 1576002 1133 2978732 1134 NPV

so we will construct an income statement for each year Beginning with the initial cash ow at time zero the project will require an investment in equipment The project will also require an investment in NWC The initial NWC investment is given and the subsequent NWC investment will be 15 percent of the next year s sales In this case it will be Year 1 sales Realizing we need Year 1 sales to calculate the required NWC capital at time 0 we nd that Year 1 sales will be 35340000 So the cash ow required for the project today will be Capital spending 724000000 Initial NWC 71800000 Total cash

xed costs are given at 1200000 per year To calculate depreciation each year we use the initial equipment cost of 24 million times the appropriate MACRS depreciation each year The remainder of each

we need to account for any other cash ows The other cash ows in this case are NWC cash ows and capital spending which is the aftertax salvage of the equipment The required NWC capital is 15 percent of the increase in sales in the next year We will B 194 SOLUTIONS DJ 03 work through the NWC cash ow for Year 1 The total NWC in Year 1 will be 15 percent of sales increase from Year 1 to Year 2 or

NWC In Year 4 the NWC cash ow is positive since sales are declining And in Year 5 the NWC cash ow is the recovery of all NWC the company still has in the project To calculate the aftertax salvage value we rst need the book value of the equipment The book value at the end of the ve years will be the purchase price minus the total depreciation So the ending book value is Ending book value

trickier You might assume that since we already own the old computer there is no initial cost but we can sell the old computer so there is an opportunity cost We need to account for this opportunity cost To do so we will calculate the aftertax salvage value of the old computer today We need the book value of the old computer to do so The book value is not given directly but we are told that the old computer has depreciation of 130000 per year for the next three years so we can assume the book value is the total amount of depreciation over the remaining life of the system or 390000 So the aftertaX salvage value of the old computer is A ertax salvage value 210000 390000 7 21000038 377200 This is the initial cost of the old computer system today because we are forgoing the opportunity to sell it today We next need to calculate the aftertax salvage value of the computer system in two years since we are buying it today The aftertax salvage value in two years is A ertax salvage value

with whether or not to replace the machine now and are not worrying about what will happen in two years the correct analysis is NPV To calculate the NPV of the decision on the computer system now we need the difference in the total cash ows of the old computer system and the new computer system From our previous calculations we can say the cash ows for each computer system are E New computer Old

AND EVALUATION Answers to Concepts Review and Critical Thinking Questions 1 Forecasting risk is the risk that a poor decision is made because of errors in projected cash ows The danger is greatest with a new product because the cash ows are probably harder to predict 2 With a sensitivity analysis one variable is examined over a broad range of values With a scenario analysis all variables are examined for a limited range of values 3 It is true that if average revenue is less than average cost the firm is losing money This much of the statement is therefore correct At the margin however accepting a project with marginal revenue in excess of its marginal cost clearly acts to increase operating cash ow 4 It makes wages and salaries a xed cost driving up operating leverage 5 Fixed costs are relatively high because airlines are relatively capital intensive and airplanes are expensive Skilled employees such as pilots and mechanics mean relatively high wages which because of union agreements are relatively xed Maintenance expenses are significant and relatively xed as well 6 From the shareholder perspective the financial breakeven point is the most important A project can exceed the accounting and cash breakeven points but still be below the nancial breakeven point This causes a reduction in shareholder your wealth 7 The project will reach the cash breakeven first the accounting breakeven next and nally the nancial breakeven For a project with an initial investment and sales after this ordering will always apply The cash breakeven is achieved first since it excludes depreciation The accounting breakeven is next since it includes depreciation Finally the nancial breakeven which includes the time value of money is achieved 8 Soft capital rationing implies that the rm as a whole isn t short of capital but the division or project does not have the necessary capital The implication is that the firm is passing up positive NPV projects With hard capital rationing the rm is unable to raise capital for a project under any circumstances Probably the most common reason for hard capital rationing is nancial distress meaning bankruptcy is a possibility 9 The implication is that they will face hard capital rationing B 202 SOLUTIONS Solutions to Questions and Problems NOTE All end of chapter problems were solved using a spreadsheet Many problems require

the project can be found from the sensitivity of NPV with respect to price ANPVAP This measure can be calculated by finding the NPV at any two different price levels and forming the ratio of the changes in these parameters Whenever a sensitivity analysis is performed all other variables are held constant at their basecase values a To calculate the accounting breakeven we first need to nd the depreciation for each year The depreciation is Depreciation 724000 8 Depreciation 90500 per year And the accounting breakeven is QA 780000 9050043 7 29 QA 62179 units To calculate the accounting

40835500 2041731 You may wonder why we chose 95000 units Because it doesn t matter Whatever sales number we use when we calculate the change in NPV per unit sold the ratio will be the same 0 To find out how sensitive OCF is to a change in variable costs we will compute the OCF at a variable cost of 30 Again the number we choose to use here is irrelevant We will get the same ratio of OCF to a one dollar change in variable cost no matter what variable cost we use So using the tax shield approach the OCF at a variable cost of 30 is OCFneW 43 7 3090000 7780000065 03590500 OCFnew 285175 So the

LESSONS FROM CAPITAL MARKET HISTORY Answers to Concepts Review and Critical Thinking Questions 1 10 They all wish they had Since they didn t it must have been the case that the stellar performance was not foreseeable at least not by most As in the previous question it s easy to see after the fact that the investment was terrible but it probably wasn t so easy ahead of time No stocks are riskier Some investors are highly risk averse and the extra possible return doesn t attract them relative to the extra risk On average the only return that is earned is the required returniinvestors buy assets with returns in excess of the required return positive NPV bidding up the price and thus causing the return to fall to the required return zero NPV investors sell assets with returns less than the required return negative NPV driving the price lower and thus causing the return to rise to the required return zero NPV The market is not weak form efficient Yes historical information is also public information weak form efficiency is a subset of semistrong form efficiency Ignoring trading costs on average such investors merely earn what the market offers stock investments all have a zero NPV If trading costs exist then these investors lose by the amount of the costs Unlike gambling the stock market is a positive sum game everybody can win Also speculators provide liquidity to markets and thus help to promote ef ciency The EMH only says within the bounds of increasingly strong assumptions about the information processing of investors that assets are fairly priced An implication of this is that on average the typical market participant cannot earn excessive pro ts from a particular trading strategy However that does not mean that a few particular investors cannot outperform the market over a particular investment horizon Certain investors who do well for a period of time get a lot of attention from the nancial press but the scores of investors who do not do well over the same period of time generally get considerably less attention from the nancial press a If the market is not weak form efficient then this information could be acted on and a pro t earned from following the price trend Under 2 3 and 4 this information is fully impounded in the current price and no abnormal pro t opportunity exists CHAPTER 12 B 225 b Under 2 if the market is not semistrong form ef cient then this information could be used to buy the stock cheap before the rest of the market discovers the nancial statement anomaly Since 2 is stronger than 1 both imply that a pro t opportunity exists under 3 and 4 this information is fully impounded in the current price and no pro t opportunity exists c Under 3 if the market is not strong form efficient then this information could be used as a pro table trading strategy by noting the buying activity of the insiders as a signal that the stock is underpriced or that good news is imminent Since 1 and 2 are weaker than 3 all three imply that a pro t opportunity exists Note that this assumes the individual who sees the insider trading is the only one who sees the trading If the information about the trades made by company management is public information it will be discounted in the stock price and no pro t opportunity exists Under 4 this information does not signal any pro t opportunity for traders any pertinent information the managerinsiders may have is fully re ected in the current share prrce Solutions to Questions and Problems NOTE All end of chapter problems were solved using a spreadsheet Many problems require multiple steps Due to space and readability constraints when these intermediate steps are included in this solutions manual rounding may appear to have occurred However the final answer for each problem is found without rounding during any step in the problem Basic 1 The return of any asset is the increase in price plus any dividends or cash ows all divided by the initial price The return of this stock is R 102 791 240 91 1473 or 1473 2 The dividend yield is the dividend divided by price at the beginning of the period price so Dividend yield 240 91 0264 or 264 And the capital gains yield is the increase in price divided by the initial price so Capital gains yield 102 7 91 91 1209 or 1209 3 Using the equation for total return we nd R 83 7 91 2409170615 or 7615 And the

mean you were paying the company for the privilege of owning the stock It has happened on bonds B 226 SOLUTIONS 4 The total dollar return is the increase in price plus the coupon payment so Total

average real riskfree rate was 1R1r1h Ff 10421035 7 1 0068 or 068 And to calculate the average real risk premium we can subtract the average riskfree rate from the average real return So the average

mean return for small company stocks was 171 percent with a standard deviation of 326 percent Doubling your money is a 100 return so if the return distribution is normal we can use the Zstatistic So Z

above the mean This corresponds to a probability of about 000001 or about once every 1 million years 19 It is impossible to lose more than 100 percent of your investment Therefore return distributions

The best forecast for a one year return is the arithmetic average which is 123 percent The geometric average found in Table 124 is 104 percent To find the best forecast for other periods we apply

an extremely small chance of the government defaulting so there is little default risk Since Tbills are short term there is also very limited interest rate risk However as this example shows there is

but we are looking for the probability the return is greater than 10 percent Given that the total probability is 100 percent or 1 the probability of a return greater than 10 percent is 1 minus the

Review and Critical Thinking Questions 1 Some of the risk in holding any asset is unique to the asset in question By investing in a variety of assets this unique portion of the total risk can be eliminated at little cost On the other hand there are some risks that affect all investments This portion of the total risk of an asset cannot be costlessly eliminated In other words systematic risk can be controlled but only by a costly reduction in expected returns If the market expected the growth rate in the coming year to be 2 percent then there would be no change in security prices if this expectation had been fully anticipated and priced However if the market had been expecting a growth rate other than 2 percent and the expectation was incorporated into security prices then the government s announcement would most likely cause security prices in general to change prices would drop if the anticipated growth rate had been more than 2percent and prices would rise if the anticipated growth rate had been less than 2 percent a systematic b unsystematic 6 both probably mostly systematic d unsystematic e unsystematic f systematic a a change in systematic risk has occurred market prices in general will most likely decline b no change in unsystematic risk company price will most likely stay constant c no change in systematic risk market prices in general will most likely stay constant d a change in unsystematic risk has occurred company price will most likely decline 8 no change in systematic risk market prices in general will most likely stay constant No to both questions The portfolio expected return is a weighted average of the asset returns so it must be less than the largest asset return and greater than the smallest asset return False The variance of the individual assets is a measure of the total risk The variance on a well diversified portfolio is a function of systematic risk only Yes the standard deviation can be less than that of every asset in the portfolio However Bp cannot be less than the smallest beta because Bp is a weighted average of the individual asset betas Yes It is possible in theory to construct a zero beta portfolio of risky assets whose return would be equal to the riskfree rate It is also possible to have a negative beta the return would be less than the riskfree rate A negative beta asset would carry a negative risk premium because of its value as a diversification instrument CHAPTER 13 B 237 Such layoffs generally occur in the context of corporate r39estructurings To the extent that the market views a restructuring as valuecreating stock prices will rise So it s not layoffs per se that are being cheered on Nonetheless Wall Street does encourage corporations to takes actions to create value even if such actions involve layoffs Earnings contain information about recent sales and costs This information is useful for projecting future growth rates and cash ows Thus unexpectedly low earnings often lead market participants to reduce estimates of future growth rates and cash ows price drops are the result The reverse is often true for unexpectedly high earnings Solutions to Questions and Problems NOTE All end of chapter problems were solved using a spreadsheet Many problems require multiple steps Due to space and readability constraints when these intermediate steps are included in this solutions manual rounding may appear to have occurred However the final answer for each problem is found without rounding during any step in the problem Basic The portfolio weight of an asset is total investment in that asset divided by the total portfolio value First we will nd the portfolio value which is Total value 18045 14027 11880 The portfolio weight for each stock is WeightA 1804511880 6818 Weight 1402711880 3182 The expected return of a portfolio is the sum of the weight of each asset times the expected return of each asset The total value of the portfolio is Total value 2950 3700 6650 So the expected return of this portfolio is ERp 29506650011 37006650015 1323 or 1323 The expected return of a portfolio is the sum of the weight of each asset times the expected return of each asset So the expected return of the portfolio is 1302 6009 2517 1513 1160 or 1160 B 238 SOLUTIONS 4 Here we are given the expected return of the portfolio and the expected return of each asset in the portfolio and are asked to nd the weight of each asset We can use the equation for the expected return of a portfolio to solve this problem Since the total weight of a portfolio must equal 1 100 the weight of Stock Y must be one minus the weight of Stock X Mathematically speaking this means ERp 124 14wX 10517wX We can now solve this equation for the weight of Stock X as 124 14wX 105 7 105wX 019 035wX wX 0542857 So the dollar amount invested in Stock X is the weight of Stock X times the total portfolio value or Investment in X 054285710000 542857 And the dollar amount invested in Stock Y is Investment in Y 1 7 054285710000 457443 5 The expected return of an asset is the sum of the probability of each return occurring times the probability of that return occurring So the expected return of the asset is ER 25708 7521 1375 or 1375 6 The expected return of an asset is the sum of the probability of each return occurring times the probability of that return occurring So the expected return of the asset is ER 20705 7 5012 3025 1250 or 1250 7 The expected return of an asset is the sum of the probability of each return occurring times the probability of that return occurring So the

nd the squared deviations from the expected return We then multiply each possible squared deviation by its probability then add all of these up The result is the variance So the variance and standard deviation of each stock is 5A2 71505 7 08552 6508 7 08552 2013 7 08552 00060 5 00060 2 0246 or 246 CHAPTER 13 B 239 c552 157 17 7 11052 6512 7 11052 2029 7 11052 01830 5B 01830 2 1353 or 1353 The expected return of a portfolio is the sum of the weight of each asset times the expected return of each asset So the expected return of the portfolio is ERp 2508 5515 2024 1505 or 1505 If we own this portfolio we would expect to get a return of 1505 percent a To nd the expected return of the portfolio we need to nd the return of the portfolio in each state of the economy This portfolio is a special case since all three assets have the same weight To nd the expected return in an equally weighted portfolio we can sum the returns of each asset and divide by the number of assets so the expected return of the portfolio in each state of the economy 1s Boom ERp 07 15 333 1833 or 1833 Bust ERp 13 03 7063 0333 or 333 To nd the expected return of the portfolio we multiply the return in each state of the economy by the probability of that state occurring and then sum Doing this we find ERp 351833 650333 0858 or 858 This portfolio does not have an equal weight in each asset We still need to nd the return of the portfolio in each state of the economy To do this we will multiply the return of each asset by its portfolio weight and then sum the products to get the portfolio return in each state of the economy Doing so we get Boom ERp 2007 2015 6033 2420 or 2420 Bust ERp 20 13 2003 60706 70040 or 7040 And the expected return of the portfolio is ERp 352420 657004 0821 or 821 To nd the variance we nd the squared deviations from the expected return We then multiply each possible squared deviation by its probability than add all of these up The result is the variance So the variance and standard deviation of the portfolio is of 352420 7 08212 6570040 7 08212 013767 B 240 SOLUTIONS 10 11 p n N a This portfolio does not have an equal weight in each asset We first need to nd the return of the portfolio in each state of the economy To do this we will multiply the return of each asset by its portfolio weight and then sum the products to get the portfolio return in each state of the economy Doing so we get Boom ERp 303 4045 3033 3690 or 3690 Good 130213 3012 4010 3015 1210 or 1210 Poor ERp 3001 407 15 30705 70720 or 7720 Bust ERp 30706 40730 30709 71650 or 71650 And the expected return of the portfolio is ERp 153690 45 1210 3570720 057 1650 0764 or 764 b To calculate the standard deviation we rst need to calculate the variance To nd the variance we find the

times the beta of each asset So the beta of the portfolio is B 2584 20117 15111 40136 115 The beta of a portfolio is the sum of the weight of each asset times the beta of each asset If the portfolio is as risky as the market it must have the same beta as the market Since the beta of the market is one we know the beta of our portfolio is one We also need to remember that the beta of the riskfree asset is zero It has to be zero since the asset has no risk Setting up the equation for the beta of our portfolio we get Sp 10 1301313813Bx Solving for the beta of Stock X we get BX 162 1 DJ 1 4 CHAPTER 13 B 241 CAPM states the relationship between the risk of an asset and its expected return CAPM is ERa Rr ERM Rf X Bi Substituting the values we are given we nd ERi 052 117 052105 1129 or 1129 We are given the values for the CAPM except for the B of the stock We need to substitute these values into the CAPM and solve for the B of the stock One important thing we need to realize is that we are given the market risk premium The market risk premium is the expected return of the market minus the riskfree rate We must be careful not to use this value as the expected return of the market Using the CAPM we nd ERi 102 045 0853i 3 067 Here we need to nd the expected return of the market using the CAPM Substituting the values given and solving for the expected return of the market we nd ER 135 055 ERM 7 055117 ERM 1234 or 1234 Here we need to nd the riskfree rate using the CAPM Substituting the values given and solving for the riskfree rate we nd ER 14 R 115 in145 14 Rf 16675 7145Rf Rf 0594 or 594 1 Again we have a special case where the portfolio is equally weighted so we can sum the returns of each asset and divide by the number of assets The expected return of the portfolio is 1302 16 0482 1040 or 1040 B242 SOLUTIONS b We need to nd the portfolio weights that result in a portfolio with a B of 095 We know the B of the riskfree asset is zero We also know the weight of the riskfree asset is one minus the weight of the stock since the portfolio weights must sum to one or 100 percent So Bp 095 wsl35 17 ws0 095 135ws 0 70ws ws 095135 ws 7037 And the weight of the riskfree asset is wa 177037 2963 c We need to find the portfolio weights that result in a portfolio with an expected return of 8 percent We also know the weight of the riskfree asset is one minus the weight of

the riskfree rate to buy more of the stock 18 First we need to nd the B of the portfolio The B of the riskfree asset is zero and the weight of the riskfree asset is one minus the weight of the stock the B of the portfolio is 15p 7 wwl25 1 7ww0 7 l25ww So to find the B of the portfolio for any weight of the stock we simply multiply the weight of the stock times its B 0 CHAPTER 13 B 243 Even though we are solving for the B and expected return of a portfolio of one stock and the riskfree asset for different portfolio weights we are really solving for the SML Any combination of this stock and the riskfree asset will fall on the SML For that matter a portfolio of any stock and the riskfree asset or any portfolio of stocks will fall on the SML We know the slope of the SML line is the market risk premium so using the CAPM and the information concerning this stock the market risk premium 1s ERW 152 053 MRP125 MRP 099125 0792 or 792 So now we know the CAPM equation for any stock is 1302 053 0793310 The slope of the SML is equal to the market risk premium which is 00792 Using these equations to ll in the table we get the following results WW 130 159 000 530 0000 2500 778 0313 5000 1025

we are given for each stock we nd ERy 08 075130 1775 or 1775 It is given in the problem that the expected return of Stock Y is 185 percent but according to the CAPM the return of the stock based on its level of risk the expected return should be 1775 percent This means the stock return is too high given its level of risk Stock Y plots above the SML and is undervalued In other words its price must increase to reduce the expected return to 1775 percent For Stock Z we nd ERz 08 075070 1325 or 1325 The return given for Stock Z is 121 percent but according to the CAPM the expected return of the stock should be 1325 percent based on its level of risk Stock Z plots below the SML and is overvalued In other words its price must decrease to increase the expected return to 1325 percent B 244 SOLUTIONS N O N p A We can also answer this question using the rewardtorisk ratio All assets must have the same reward torisk ratio The rewardtorisk ratio is the risk premium of the asset divided by its B We are given the market risk premium and we know the B of the market is one so the rewardtorisk ratio for the market is 0075 or 75 percent Calculating the rewardtorisk ratio for Stock Y we nd Rewardtorisk ratio Y 185 708 130 0808 The rewardtorisk ratio for Stock Y is too high which means the stock plots above the SML and the stock is undervalued Its price must increase until its rewardtorisk ratio is equal to the market reward torisk ratio For Stock Z we nd Rewardtorisk ratio Z 121 7 08 70 0586 The rewardtorisk ratio for Stock Z is too low which means the stock plots below the SML and the stock is overvalued Its price must decrease until its rewardtorisk ratio is equal to the market reward torisk ratio We need to set the rewardtorisk ratios of the two assets equal to each other which is 185 7 Rf130 1217Rf070 We can cross multiply to get 070185 7Rf1301217Rf Solving for the riskfree rate we nd 01295 7070Rf 01573 7130Rf Rf 0463 or 463 Intermediate For a portfolio

245 22 We know that the rewardtorisk ratios for all assets must be equal This can be expressed as ERA RflBA ERB 7 erBB The numerator of each equation is the risk premium of the asset so 1PABA RPBBB We can rearrange this equation to get BBBARPBRPA If the rewardtorisk ratios are the same the ratio of the betas of the assets is equal to the ratio of the risk premiums of the assets 11 We need to nd the return of the portfolio in each state of the economy To do this we will multiply the return of each asset by its portfolio weight and then sum the products to get the portfolio return in each state of

09002 50 10 7 09002 2556 7 09002 a 11530 on 11530 2 3396 or 3396 Although Stock 11 has more total risk than I it has much less systematic risk since its beta is much smaller than I s Thus I has more systematic risk and II has more unsystematic and more total risk Since unsystematic risk can be diversified away I is actually the riskier stock despite the lack of volatility in its returns StockI will have a higher risk premium and a greater expected return 27 28 CHAPTER 13 B249 Here we have the expected return and beta for two assets We can express the returns of the two assets using CAPM If the CAPM is true then the security market line holds as well which means all assets have the same risk premium Setting the risk premiums of the assets equal to each other and solving for the riskfree

RM 1123 or1123 101 0559 80RM 7 0559 RM 1123 or 1123 a The expected return of an asset is the sum of the probability of each return occurring times the probability of that return occurring So the expected return of each stock is 15021 15708 7013 1548 1510 or 1510 ERB 15705 7014 1529 1340 or 1340 b We can use the expected returns we calculated to nd the slope of the Security Market Line We know that the beta of Stock A is 25 greater than the beta of Stock B Therefore as beta increases by 25 the expected return on a security increases by 017 1510 7 1340 The slope of the security market line SML equals Beta SlopeSML Rise Run SlopeSML Increase in expected return Increase in beta SlopegM 15107134025 SlopeSML 0680 or 680 B 250 SOLUTIONS Since the market s beta is 1 and the riskfree rate has a beta of zero the slope of the Security Market Line equals the expected market risk premium So the expected market risk premium must be 68 percent We could also solve this problem using CAPM The equations for the expected returns of the two stocks are ERA 151 Rf 3 25MRP ERB 134 R BBMRP We can rewrite the CAPM equation for Stock A as 151 Rf BBMRP 25MRP Subtracting the CAPM equation for Stock B from this equation yields 017 25MRP MRP 068 or 68 which is the same answer as our previous result CHAPTER 14 COST OF CAPITAL Answers to Concepts Review and Critical Thinking Questions 1 It is the minimum rate of return the rm must earn overall on its existing assets If it earns more than this value is created Book values for debt are likely to be much closer to market values than are equity book values No The cost of capital depends on the risk of the project not the source of the money Interest expense is taxdeductible There is no difference between pretax and aftertax equity costs The primary advantage of the DCF model is its simplicity The method is disadvantaged in that 1 the model is applicable only to rms that actually pay dividends many do not 2 even if a rm does pay dividends the DCF model requires a constant dividend growth rate forever 3 the estimated cost of equity from this method is very sensitive to changes in g which is a very uncertain parameter and 4 the model does not explicitly consider risk although risk is implicitly considered to the extent that the market has impounded the relevant risk of the stock into its market price While the share price and most recent dividend can be observed in the market the dividend growth rate must be estimated Two common methods of estimating g are to use analysts earnings and payout forecasts or to determine some appropriate average historical g from the rm s available data Two primary advantages of the SML approach are that the model explicitly incorporates the relevant risk of the stock and the method is more widely applicable than is the dividend discount model model since the SML doesn t make any assumptions about the rm s dividends The primary disadvantages of the SML method are 1 three parameters the riskfree rate the expected return on the market and beta must be estimated and 2 the method essentially uses historical information to estimate these parameters The riskfree rate is usually estimated to be the yield on very short maturity Tbills and is hence observable the market risk premium is usually estimated from historical risk premiums and hence is not observable The stock beta which is unobservable is usually estimated either by determining some average historical beta from the firm and the market s return data or by using beta estimates provided by analysts and investment firms The appropriate aftertax cost of debt to the company is the interest rate it would have to pay if it were to issue new debt today Hence if the YTM on outstanding bonds of the company is observed the company has an accurate estimate of its cost of debt If the debt is privatelyplaced the lm could still estimate its cost of debt by 1 looking at the cost of debt for similar rms in similar risk classes 2 looking at the average debt cost for rms with the same credit rating assuming the rm s private debt is rated or 3 consulting analysts and investment bankers Even if the debt is publicly traded an additional complication is when the firm has more than one issue outstanding these issues rarely have the same yield because no two issues are ever completely homogeneous B 252 SOLUTIONS p A O This only considers the dividend yield component of the required return on equity This is the current yield only not the promised yield to maturity In addition it is based on the book value of the liability and it ignores taxes c Equity is inherently more risky than debt except perhaps in the unusual case where a firm s assets have a negative beta For this reason the cost of equity exceeds the cost of debt Iftaxes are considered in this case it can be seen that at reasonable tax rates the cost of equity does exceed the cost of debt 9 9 RS p 12 7508 1800 or 1800 Both should proceed The appropriate discount rate does not depend on which company is investing it depends on the risk of the project Since Superior is in the business it is closer to a pure play Therefore its cost of capital should be used With an 18 cost of capital the project has an NPV of 1 million regardless of who takes it If the different operating divisions were in much different risk classes then separate cost of capital gures should be used for the different divisions the use of a single overall cost of capital would be inappropriate If the single hurdle rate were used riskier divisions would tend to receive more funds for investment projects since their return would exceed the hurdle rate despite the fact that they may actually plot below the SML and hence be unprofitable projects on a riskadjusted basis The typical problem encountered in estimating the cost of capital for a division is that it rarely has its own securities traded on the market so it is difficult to observe the market s valuation of the risk of the division Two typical ways around this are to use a pure play proxy for the division or to use subjective adjustments of the overall firm hurdle rate based on the perceived risk of the division Solutions to Questions and Problems NOTE All end of chapter problems were solved using a spreadsheet Many problems require multiple steps Due to space and readability constraints when these intermediate steps are included in this solutions manual rounding may appear to have occurred However the final answer for each problem is found without rounding during any step in the problem Basic With the information given we can find the cost of equity using the dividend growth model Using this model the cost of equity is RE 240105552 055 1037 or 1037 Here we have

dividend growth model Using the CAPM we find RE 05 08508 1180 or 1180 CHAPTER 14 B 253 And using the dividend growth model the cost of equity is RE 16010637 06 1058 or 1058 Both estimates of the cost of equity seem reasonable If we remember the historical return on large capitalization stocks the estimate from the CAPM model is about two percent higher than average and the estimate from the dividend growth model is about one percent higher than the historical average so we cannot de nitively say one of the estimates is incorrect Given this we will use the average of the two so RE 1180 10582 1119 or 1119 To use the dividend growth model we rst need to nd the growth rate in dividends So the increase in dividends each year was g1 1127105105 0667 or 667 g 1197112112 0625 or 625 g3 130 7119119 0924 or 924 g 143 7130130 1000 or 1000 So the average arithmetic growth rate in dividends was g 0667 0625 0924 10004 0804 or 804 Using this growth rate in the dividend growth model we nd the

value of debt is the total par value of all outstanding debt so BVD 80000000 35000000 115000000 To find the market value of debt we nd the price of the bonds and multiply by the number of bonds Alternatively we can multiply the price quote of the bond times the par value of the bonds Doing so we in MVD 9580000000 6135000000 MVD 76000000 21350000 MVD 97350000 The YTM of the zero coupon bonds

Using the equation to calculate the WACC we find WACC 6014 050635081735 1052 or 1052 b Since interest is tax deductible and dividends are not we must look at the aftertax cost of debt which is 081735 0520 or 520 Hence on an aftertax basis debt is cheaper than the preferred stock 10 p A p A CHAPTER 14 B 255 Here we need to use the debtequity ratio to calculate the WACC Doing so we nd WACC 151165

the capital structure of the company times the oatation costs so fT 63989708 32489706 225689704 0692 or 692 The initial cash outflow for the project needs to be adjusted for the oatation costs To account for the oatation costs Amount raised1 7 0692 35000000 Amount raised 35000000l 7 0692 37602765 So the cash ow at time zero will be CFO 75100000 7 37602765 7 13000000 744002765 There is an important caveat to this solution This solution assumes that the increase in net working capital does not require the company to raise outside funds therefore the oatation costs are not included However this is an assumption and the company could need to raise outside funds for the NWC If this is true the initial cash outlay includes these oatation costs so Total cost of NWC including oatation costs 13000001 70692 1396674 This would make the total initial cash ow CF0 7 75100000 7 37602765 7 1396674 7 744099439 CHAPTER 14 B 265 To nd the required return on this project we first need

Thinking Questions 1 A company s internally generated cash ow provides a source of equity financing For a pro table company outside equity may never be needed Debt issues are larger because large companies have the greatest access to public debt markets small companies tend to borrow more from private lenders Equity issuers are frequently small companies going public such issues are often quite small From the previous question economies of scale are part of the answer Beyond this debt issues are simply easier and less risky to sell from an investment bank s perspective The two main reasons are that very large amounts of debt securities can be sold to a relatively small number of buyers particularly large institutional buyers such as pension funds and insurance companies and debt securities are much easier to price They are riskier and harder to market from an investment bank s perspective Yields on comparable bonds can usually be readily observed so pricing a bond issue accurately is much less difficult It is clear that the stock was sold too cheaply so Eyetech had reason to be unhappy No but in fairness pricing the stock in such a situation is extremely difficult It s an important factor Only 65 million of the shares were underpriced The other 32 million were in effect priced completely correctly The evidence suggests that a nonunderwritten rights offering might be substantially cheaper than a cash offer However such offerings are rare and there may be hidden costs or other factors not yet identi ed or well understood by researchers He could have done worse since his access to the oversubscribed and presumably underpriced issues was restricted while the bulk of his funds were allocated to stocks from the undersubscribed and quite possibly overpriced issues a The price will probably go up because IPOs are generally underpriced This is especially true for smaller issues such as this one b It is probably safe to assume that they are having trouble moving the issue and it is likely that the issue is not substantially underpriced B 268 SOLUTIONS Solutions to Questions and Problems NOTE All end of chapter problems were solved using a spreadsheet Many problems require multiple steps Due to space and readability constraints when these intermediate steps are included in this solutions manual rounding may appear to have occurred However the final answer for each problem is found without rounding during any step in the problem Basic 1 a The new market value will be the current shares outstanding times the stock price plus the rights offered times the rights price so New market value 50000081 6000070 44700000 b The number of rights associated with the old shares is the number of shares outstanding divided by the rights offered so Number of rights needed 500000 old shares60000 new shares 833 rights per new share c The new price of the stock will be the new market value of the company divided by the total number of shares outstanding after the rights offer which will be 13X 44700000500000 60000 7982 d The value of the right Value ofa right 8100 7 7982 118 e A rights offering usually costs less it protects the proportionate interests of existing shareholders and also protects against underpricing 2 a The maximum subscription price is the current stock price or 53 The minimum price is anything greater than 0 b The number of new shares will be the amount raised divided by the subscription price so Number of new shares 40000000 48 833333 shares And the number of rights needed to buy one share will be the current shares outstanding divided by the number of new shares offered so Number of rights needed 4100000 shares outstanding833333 new shares 492 CHAPTER 15 B 269 c A shareholder can buy 492 rights on shares for 49253 26076 The shareholder can exercise these rights for 48 at a total cost of 26076 48 30876 The investor will then have EXrights shares 1 492 EXrights shares 592 The eXrights price per share is PX 49253 48592 5216 So the value of a right is Value ofa right 53 7 5216 084 d Before the offer a shareholder will have the shares owned at the current market price or Portfolio value 1000 shares53 53000 After the rights offer the share price will fall but the shareholder will also hold the rights so Portfolio value 1000 shares5216 1000 rights084 53000 Using the equation we derived in Problem 2 part c to calculate the price of the stock eXrights we can nd the number of shares a shareholder will have eXrights which is PX 7480 N81 40N 1 N 5613 The number of new shares is the amount raised divided by the pershare subscription price so Number of new shares 2000000040 500000 And the number of old shares is the number of new shares times the number of shares eXrights so Number of old shares 5613500000 2806452 B270 SOLUTIONS 4 If you receive 1000 shares of each the pro t is Pro t 10007 7 10005 2000 Since you will only receive onehalf of the shares of the oversubscribed issue your pro t will be Expected pro t 5007 7 10005 71500 This is an example of the winner s curse 5 Using X to stand for the required sale proceeds the equation to calculate the total sale proceeds including oatation costs is X1 7 09 60000000 X 65934066 required total proceeds from sale So the number of shares offered is the total amount raised divided by the offer price which is Number of shares offered 6593406621 3139717 6 This is basically the same as the previous problem except we need to include the 900000 of expenses in the amount the company needs to raise so X1 7 09 60000000 90000 X 66923077 required total proceeds from sale Number of shares offered 6692307721 3186813 7 We need to calculate the net amount raised and the costs associated with the offer The net amount raised is the number of shares offered times the price received by the company minus the costs associated with the offer so Net amount raised 10000000 shares1820 7 900000 7 320000 180780000 The company received 180780000 from the stock offering Now we can calculate the direct costs Part of the direct costs are given in the problem but the company also had to pay the underwriters The stock was offered at 20 per share and the company received 1820 per share The difference which is the underwriters spread is also a direct cost The total direct costs were Total direct costs 900000 20 7 182010000000 shares 18900000 We are given part of the indirect costs in the problem Another indirect cost is the immediate price appreciation The total indirect costs were Total indirect costs 320000 2560 7 2010000000 shares 56320000 CHAPTER 15 B 271 This makes the total costs Total costs 18900000 56320000 75220000 The oatation costs as a percentage of the amount raised is the total cost divided by the amount raised S0 Flotation cost percentage 75220000180780000 4161 or 4161 The number of rights needed per new share is Number of rights needed 120000 old shares25000 new shares 48 rights per new share Using PR0 as the

divided by the current stock price assuming the stock price doesn t change So Number of shares after offering 8000000 3500000050 8700000 Since the book value per share is 18 the old book value of the shares is the current number of shares outstanding times 18 From the previous solution we can see the company will sell 700000 shares and these will have a book value of 50 per share The sum of these two values will give us the total book value of the company If we divide this by the new number of shares outstanding Doing so we nd the new book value per share will be New book value per share

FINANCIAL LEVERAGE AND CAPITAL STRUCTURE POLICY Answers to Concepts Review and Critical Thinking Questions 1 Business risk is the equity risk arising from the nature of the lm s operating activity and is directly related to the systematic risk of the rm s assets Financial risk is the equity risk that is due entirely to the film s chosen capital structure As nancial leverage or the use of debt financing increases so does nancial risk and hence the overall risk of the equity Thus Firm B could have a higher cost of equity if it uses greater leverage No it doesn t follow While it is true that the equity and debt costs are rising the key thing to remember is that the cost of debt is still less than the cost of equity Since we are using more and more debt the WACC does not necessarily rise Because many relevant factors such as bankruptcy costs tax asymmetries and agency costs cannot easily be identified or quanti ed it s practically impossible to determine the precise debtequity ratio that maximizes the value of the film However if the rm s cost of new debt suddenly becomes much more expensive it s probably true that the firm is too highly leveraged The more capital intensive industries such as airlines cable television and electric utilities tend to use greater nancial leverage Also industries with less predictable future earnings such as computers or drugs tend to use less financial leverage Such industries also have a higher concentration of growth and startup firms Overall the general tendency is for rms with identi able tangible assets and relatively more predictable future earnings to use more debt nancing These are typically the firms with the greatest need for external nancing and the greatest likelihood of bene ting from the interest tax shelter It s called leverage or gearing in the UK because it magni es gains or losses Homemade leverage refers to the use of borrowing on the personal level as opposed to the corporate eve One answer is that the right to le for bankruptcy is a valuable asset and the nancial manager acts in shareholders best interest by managing this asset in ways that maximize its value To the extent that a bankruptcy ling prevents a race to the courthouse steps it would seem to be a reasonable use of the process As in the previous question it could be argued that using bankruptcy laws as a sword may simply be the best use of the asset Creditors are aware at the time a loan is made of the possibility of bankruptcy and the interest charged incorporates it CHAPTER 16 B 277 9 One side is that Continental was going to go bankrupt because its costs made it uncompetitive The bankruptcy ling enabled Continental to restructure and keep ying The other side is that Continental abused the bankruptcy code Rather than renegotiate labor agreements Continental simply abrogated them to the detriment of its employees In this and the last several questions an important thing to keep in mind is that the bankruptcy code is a creation of law not economics A strong argument can always be made that making the best use of the bankruptcy code is no different from for example minimizing taxes by making best use of the tax code Indeed a strong case can be made that it is the nancial manager s duty to do so As the case of Continental illustrates the code can be changed if socially undesirable outcomes are a problem 10

income taxes is I Allequity I EBIT 39000 39000 39000 Interest 16000 24000 0 Taxes 9200 6000 15600 NI 13800 5 9000 23 00 EPS 197 180 213 The allequity plan still has the highest EPS Plan II still has the lowest EPS We can calculate the EPS as EPS EBIT 7 RDD1 7 tc Shares outstanding This is similar to the equation we used before except now we need to account for taxes Again the interest expense term is zero in the allequity capital structure So the breakeven EBIT between the allequity plan and Plan I is EBIT1 7 4011000 EBIT 7 101600001 7 407000 EBIT 44000 The breakeven EBIT between the allequity plan and Plan II is EBIT1 7 4011000 EBIT 7 102400001 7 405000 EBIT 44000 And the breakeven between Plan I and Plan II is EBIT 7 101600001 7 407000 EBIT 7 102400001 7 405000 EBIT 44000 The breakeven levels of EBIT do not change because the addition of taxes reduces the income of all three plans by the same percentage therefore they do not change relative to one another 7 To nd the value per share of the stock under each capitalization plan we can calculate the price as the value of shares repurchased divided by the number of shares repurchased So under Plan I the value per share is P 16000011000 7 7000 shares P 40 per share And under Plan II the value per share is P 24000011000 7 5000 shares P 40 per share This shows that when there are no corporate taxes the stockholder does not care about the capital structure decision of the rm This is MampM Proposition I without taxes CHAPTER 16 B 283 8 a The earnings per share are EPS 32000 8000 shares EPS 400 So the cash ow for the company is Cash ow 400100 shares Cash ow 400 b To determine the cash ow to the shareholder we need to determine the EPS of the rm under the proposed capital structure The market value of the rm is v 558000 v 440000 Under the proposed capital structure the rm will raise new debt in the amount of D 035440000 D 154000 in debt This means the number of shares repurchased will be Shares repurchased 154000 55 Shares repurchased 2800 Under the new capital structure the company will have to make an interest payment on the new debt The net income with the interest payment will be NI 32000 7 08154000 NI 19680 This means the EPS under the new capital structure will be EPS 196808000 7 2800 shares EPS 37846 Since all earnings are paid as dividends the shareholder will receive Shareholder cash ow 37846100 shares Shareholder cash ow 37846 c To replicate the proposed capital structure the shareholder should sell 35 percent of their shares or 35 shares and lend the proceeds at 8 percent The shareholder will have an interest cash ow of Interest cash ow 355508 Interest cash ow 154 B 284 SOLUTIONS The shareholder will receive dividend payments on the remaining 65 shares so the dividends received will be Dividends received 3784665 shares Dividends received 246 The total cash ow for the shareholder under these assumptions will be Total cash ow 154 246 Total cash ow 400 This is the same cash ow we calculated in part a d The capital structure is irrelevant because shareholders can create their own leverage or unlever the stock to create the payoff they desire regardless of the capital structure the rm actually chooses 9 a The rate of return earned will be the dividend yield The company has debt so it must make an interest payment The net income for the company is NI 80000 7 08300000 NI 56000 The investor will receive dividends in proportion to the percentage of the company s share they own The total dividends received by the shareholder will be Dividends received 5600030000 300000 Dividends received 5600 So the return the shareholder expects is R 560030000 R 1867 or 1867 b To generate exactly the same cash ows in the other company the shareholder needs to match the capital structure of ABC The shareholder should sell all shares in XYZ This will net 30000 The shareholder should then borrow 30000 This will create an interest cash ow of Interest cash ow 08730000 Interest cash ow 72400 The investor should then use the proceeds of the stock sale and the loan to buy shares in ABC The investor will receive dividends in proportion to the percentage of the company s share they own The total dividends received by the shareholder will be Dividends received 8000060000 600000 Dividends received 8000 CHAPTER 16 B 285 The total cash ow for the shareholder

will increase with higher debt equity ratios CHAPTER 1 7 DIVIDENDS AND DIVIDEND POLICY Answers to Concepts Review and Critical Thinking Questions 1 p A O Dividend policy deals with the timing of dividend payments not the amounts ultimately paid Dividend policy is irrelevant when the timing of dividend payments doesn t affect the present value of all future dividends A stock repurchase reduces equity while leaving debt unchanged The debt ratio rises A firm could if desired use excess cash to reduce debt instead This is a capital structure decision Friday December 29 is the exdividend day Remember not to count January 1 because it is a holiday and the exchanges are closed Anyone who buys the stock before December 29 is entitled to the dividend assuming they do not sell it again before December 29 No because the money could be better invested in stocks that pay dividends in cash which bene t the fundholders directly The change in price is due to the change in dividends not due to the change in dividend policy Dividend policy can still be irrelevant without a contradiction The stock price dropped because of an expected drop in future dividends Since the stock price is the present value of all future dividend payments if the expected future dividend payments decrease then the stock price will decline The plan will probably have little effect on shareholder wealth The shareholders can reinvest on their own and the shareholders must pay the taxes on the dividends either way However the shareholders who take the option may bene t at the expense of the ones who don t because of the discount Also as a result of the plan the rm will be able to raise equity by paying a 10 otation cost the discount which may be a smaller discount than the market otation costs of a new issue for some companies If these rms just went public they probably did so because they were growing and needed the additional capital Growth rms typically pay very small cash dividends if they pay a dividend at all This is because they have numerous projects available and they reinvest the earnings in the rm instead of paying cash dividends The stock price drop on the exdividend date should be lower With taxes stock prices should drop by the amount of the dividend less the taxes investors must pay on the dividends A lower tax rate lowers the investors tax liability With a high tax on dividends and a low tax on capital gains investors in general will prefer capital gains If the dividend tax rate declines the attractiveness of dividends increases
