7. a. 12%, of course.

b. rE = .12 + (.12 - .075)(30/70) = .139, WACC = .075(1 - .35)(.30) + .139(.70) = .112, or 11.2%.

8. a. Base-case NPV = -1,000 + 1200/1.20 = 0

b. PV tax shield = (.35 X .1 X .3(1000))/1.1 = 9.55. APV = 0 + 9.55 = $9.55

17. a. Base-case NPV = –$1,000,000 + ($95,000/0.10) = –$50,000 PV(tax shields) = 0.35 × $400,000 = $140,000

APV = –$50,000 + $140,000 = $90,000

b. PV(tax shields, approximate) = (0.35 × 0.07 × $400,000)/0.10 = $98,000 APV = –$50,000 + $98,000 = $48,000

The present value of the tax shield is higher when the debt is fixed and therefore the tax shield is certain. When borrowing a constant proportion of the market value of the project, the interest tax shields are as uncertain as the value of the project, and therefore must be discounted at the project’s opportunity cost of capital. 19. a.

9 1,000 80 28 14.01

10 500 40 14 6.48

Total 575.74

APV = –$110,000 + $575,740 = $465,740

b. APV = Base-case NPV + PV(tax shield) – equity issue costs = –$110,000 + $575,740 – $400,000 = $65,740

Chapter #20: Understanding Options

10. The call price (a) increases; (b) decreases; (c) increases; (d) increases; (e) decreases; (f) decreases.

16. From put-call parity:

C + [EX/(1 + r)] = P + S

P = –S + C + [EX/(1 + r)] = –55 + 19.55 + [45/(1.025)] = $8.45 18. a. The payoffs at expiration for the two options are shown in the following position diagram:

Taking into account the $100 that must be repaid at expiration, the net payoffs are: b. Here we can use the put-call parity relationship: Value of call + Present value of exercise price = Value of put + Share price The value of Mr. Colleoni’s position is:

Value of put (EX = 150) – Value of put (EX = 50) – PV (150 – 50) Using the put-call parity relationship, we find that this is equal to: Value of call (EX = 150) – Value of call (EX = 50)

Thus, one combination that gives Mr. Colleoni the same payoffs is: Buy a call with an exercise price of $150

Sell a call with an exercise price of $50

Similarly, another combination with the same set of payoffs is: Buy a put with an exercise price of $150

Buy a share of stock

Borrow the present value of $150

Sell a call with an exercise price of $50

19. Statement (b) is correct.
