1.) Please refer to the spreadsheet for the FCF model. Under the debt scenario, the terminal value of the company is \$45,289,826. Under the equity scenario, the terminal value of the company is \$106,237,503.48.
For all debt, there will be a \$13M cash outflow to buy back the building, a \$7.25 M cash outflow to pay back the mortgage to Collin Bank of Commerce and Bank of McKinney, and a \$500k purchase of equipment. For all equity, the company will pay 2/3 of the cash flow in Year 7 to Comet Capital. Comet Capital is expected to earn a 25% before-tax internal rate of return.

2.) We will be able to calculate the net cash proceeds from the repurchased price of the real estate from Frank Thomas by setting NPV = 0 where NPV = PV (net cash proceeds from the repurchase price) + PV (Annual cash flows from the property) – Thomas initial investment, calculated at a 15% IRR.
With an IRR of 15%, the present value of all the annual cash flow is \$770,347.27.
PV (net cash proceeds) = \$770,347.27 - \$2,100,000 = -\$1,329,652.73
FV = \$1,329,652.73*(1.15)^7
Net cash proceeds = \$3,536,902.7

Calculations of capital gains tax owed:
(0.2)(X – \$8,669,384) = Y

Calculations of net cash proceeds:
X – Y – \$7,250,677 = \$5,245,075.08
X – 0.2X + \$1,733,876.8 – \$7,250,677 = \$3,536,902.7
0.8X = \$9,053,702.2
X = \$11,317,127

Harmonic must repurchase the building from Frank Thomas at \$11,317,127 to produce his 15% after-tax required rate of return.

3.) Please refer to my calculations in the sheet named “Question #3”. 59% of year 7’s terminal value must be distributed to Comet Capital to produce its required 25% before-tax rate of return. The value created under the debt scenario is \$37,089,386.37. The value created under the equity scenario is \$53,099,690.74.

4.) Please refer to my calculations in the sheet named “Question #4”. The rate of return for the debt scenario is 1756%. The rate of return for the equity scenario

The first option that Alexander has is through a savings bank, transferring the mortgage from seller to buyer. The mortgages account for \$400,000, bringing the total investment including Alexander’s contributions to \$480,000. Expenses already incurred include mortgage origination fees and legal expenses, which are not included in the closing costs, which include the price of the property, bank fees, and \$375,000 in escrow. After accounting for these calculations for remodeling, there is a \$60,000 gap required to be paid from the initial \$165,000.

Solutions to Valuation Questions 1. Assume you expect a company’s net income to remain stable at \$1,100 for all future years, and you expect all earnings to be distributed to stockholders at the end of each year, so that common equity also remains stable for all future years (assumes clean surplus). Also, assume the company’s β = 1.5, the market risk premium is 4% and the 20-30 year yield on risk free treasury bonds is 5%. Finally, assume the company has 1,000 shares of common stock outstanding. a. Use the CAPM to estimate the company’s equity cost of capital. • re = RF + β * (RM – RF) = 0.05 + 1.5 * 0.04 = 11% b. Compute the expected net distributions to stockholders for each future year. • D = NI – ΔCE = \$1,100 – 0 = \$1,100 c. Use the dividend discount (i.e., free cash flow to equity investors) valuation model to estimate the company’s current stock price. • Pe = D / re = \$1,100 / 0.11 = \$10,000 • price per share = \$10,000 / 1,000 = \$10 2. Same facts as in (1) above, but assume you expect the company’s income to be \$1,100 in the coming year and to grow at the rate of 5% in every subsequent year into infinity. Also, assume that the company’s common equity as of the end of the most recent fiscal year is \$8,000, and the investment needed to support the growth in net income causes common equity to increase by 5% each year. Assume the company is an all-equity firm; i.e., all financing comes from stockholders and none comes for debtholders. In this case, the company’s balance sheet has net operating assets (NOA) of \$8,000, common equity (CE) of \$8,000, and zero net financial obligations (NFO). a. Compute D1 for the coming year and the rate of growth in Dt for every year thereafter. • D1 = NI1 – ΔCE1 = 1,100 – 0.05 * 8,000 = 700 • D2 = NI2 – ΔCE2 = (1,100 * 1.05) – 0.05 * (1.05 * 8,000) = 1.05 * (1,100 – 0.05 * 8,000) = 735 = 700 * (1 + 0.05) • D3 = NI3 – ΔCE3 = (1,100 * 1.052) – 0.05 * (1.052 * 8,000) = 771.75 = 735 * (1 + 1.05) • so D is 700 in year 1 and grows at 5%…
