    The internal rate of return (IRR) is defined as the discount rate that results in a net present value of zero. IRR uses the time value of money method to calculate the present value of the projects cash inflows and outflows. Cost of capital, or minimum required rate of return, is compared to the IRR to evaluate a project. The IRR needs to be equal to or greater than cost of capital for the project to be acceptable. If the IRR is less than the cost of capital, the project should be rejected. When using IRR the cost of capital is referred to as the “hurdle rate”.…

    PPC has been calculating their after tax cost of debt using the coupon rate of 12% instead of the actual interest rate which is 8%. Taking the 8% interest rate into account, PPC’s actual cost of capital would be calculated as: [.08(1-.34)]= 5.28%. PPC has simply been using 10% (their equity growth rate) as their cost, but must instead either use the CAPM model to calculate their cost of equity, or the Dividend-growth model. If they use the CAPM model, which is the most accurate, their cost of equity will be: .078+.8(.1625-.078)=14.56%. Or they can use the Dividend-growth model and their cost of equity would be: (2.7/63)+.1=14.29%. Both are acceptable but, because the Dividend-growth model is subjective, and the coupon rate (that PPC was originally using is a sunk cost, they should use the market rate). Thus using the market rate to calculate CAPM you use the Beta and market risk premium which are both based on the market rate and more accurate. Finally, their company WACC of 9% that they have calculated is incorrect and given the above calculations, their WACC using CAPM would be: [5.28(.5)+14.6(.5)]=9.94% and their WACC using Dividend-growth would be:…

    Per calculation, Torrington’s stand-alone valuation is 192.789 million dollars (see Exhibit X), with the assumption that NWC equals 13.5% of sales. All of the numbers in this Exhibit are from the attachments of Timken case. EBIT, capital expenditure, net sales, and depreciation expense are from Exhibit 5 of the Timken case. Tax rate is calculated based on Timken Corporate Income Statements from Exhibit 1 of the Timken case. For the WACC calculation, cost of equity is calculated the assumption of a risk premium of 6.5%, since the market premium decreased over time from 7.1% to 4.7% and it is reasonable to assume that the market premium would be close to 6% by 2002. Risk free rate and cost of debt is from Exhibit 9 of the Timken case. With the assumption that Torrington and Timken are similar to each other, beta is drawn from Exhibit 8 of the Timken case. Then, the weights of equity and debt are…
