(a) The market value of debt is D = .15(1.25M ) × a13 7.4% + = 187, 000 × = 2, 026, 284 The market value of preferred equity is P = 5, 700 shares × \$87.75 = \$500, 175 The market value of common equity is E= \$2.2M × \$62.50 = 40, 000 shares × \$62.50 = \$2, 500, 000 \$55 1.25M 1.07413

1 − (1.074)13 + 494, 145 0.074

The cost of debt, preferred equity and common equity are RD = YTM on the debt = 7.4% RP = \$7.90 = 0.09 = 9% \$87.75

RE = 0.045 + 1.182 × (0.10 − 0.045) = 0.11 = 11% (b) The total value of the ﬁrm is V =D+P +E = \$2, 026, 284 + \$500, 175 + \$2, 500, 000 = \$5, 026, 459 and its overall cost of capital is D P E × (1 − TC ) × RD + × RP + × RE V V V 500, 175 2, 500, 000 2, 026, 284 = × (1 − .44) × .074 + × .09 + × .11 5, 026, 459 5, 026, 459 5, 026, 459

So, the most that True North can pay for the project and still earn the required rate of return of 8% is \$1,050,000. Solutions for Question 3 Drilling Rights = sunk costs NPV = −(Initial Investment) + PV(Tax Shield on drilling costs) + PV(Additional after-tax operating revenues) + PV(Depreciation tax shield on equipment) − (A.T. restoration costs) + PV (Salvage Value) − PV(Lost tax shield on salvage value) + PV(CF due to Terminal Loss or Recapture Depreciation) 15, 000 × 0.4 = − 15, 000 − 5, 000 + 1.15 5, 000(.5)(.4) 1 − (1.015)10 + + 5, 000(1 − .4) × 0.15 5 + .15 1, 000(1 − .4) 1, 000 1 1, 000(.5)(.4) − + − 1.1510 1.1510 1.1510 .5 + .15 1 + .4(5, 000(1 − .5)10 − 1, 000) × (1 + .15)10 = 1, 736.58

Solutions for Questions 4 (a) Initial Investment: Land Net of Capital Gain Tax: − 2(1 + 50%) + (2 × 50%)(40%) = −2.6M Building: − 1M Machinery: − 4 + 1 = −3M PV of Tax Shield Gained: 4M × 20% × 40% = 1.23M 6% + 20%

Initial Investment: 2.6 − 1 − 3 + 1.23 = −\$5.37M

(b) At the end of year 3: Land Net of Capital Gain Tax: 5 − (5 − 2)(40%) = 4.4M Machinery / Building: 2.2M PV of Tax Shield Loss: − 2.2 × 20% × 40% = −0.6769M 6% + 20%

CFs from Recap. Deprec.: 40%(4(1 − 20%)3 − 2.2) = −.0608M Cashﬂows at the end of year 3 = 4.4 + 2.2 − .6769 − .0608 = 5.8623M (c)

I. Cashﬂows derived from change in working capital: Year 0 Investment in WC Change in working capital Cf’s from WC investment II....
