5 After-tax cost of debt = IRR = 4 + ((5 4) x 2 47)/( ) = = 4 4% Market value of equity = 10,000,000 x 7 50 =\$75 million Market value of Fence Co debt = 14 million x /100 = \$15 million Total market value of company = = \$90 million WACC = ((10 3 x 75) + (4 4 x 15))/90 = 9 3% (b) (c) (d) Since the investment project is different to business operations, its business risk is different to that of existing operations. A cost of equity for appraising it can be therefore be found using the capital asset pricing model. Ungearing proxy company equity beta Asset beta = 1 2 x 54/(54 + (12 x 0 8)) = 1 2 x 54/63 6 = Regearing asset beta Market value of debt = \$15m (calculated in part (a)) Regeared asset beta = x (75 + (15 x 0 8))/75 = x 87/75 = Using the CAPM Equity or market risk premium = 11 4 = 7% Cost of equity = 4 + (1 182 x 7) = = 12 3% Portfolio theory suggests that the total risk of a portfolio of investments can be reduced by diversifying the investments held in the portfolio, e.g. by investing capital in a number of different shares rather than buying shares in only one or two companies. Even when a portfolio has been well-diversified over a number of different investments, there is a limit to the risk-reduction effect, so that there is a level of risk which cannot be diversified away. This undiversifiable risk is the risk of the financial system as a whole, and so is referred to as systematic risk or market risk. Diversifiable risk, which is the element of total risk which can be reduced or minimised by portfolio diversification, is referred to as unsystematic risk or specific risk, since it relates to individual or specific companies rather than to the financial system as a whole. Portfolio theory is concerned with total risk, which is the sum of systematic risk and unsystematic risk. The capital asset pricing model assumes that investors hold diversified portfolios, and so is concerned with systematic risk alone. Capital market efficiency is concerned with pricing efficiency when weak form, semi-strong form and strong form efficiency are being discussed. In relation to pricing efficiency, the efficient markets hypothesis (EMH) suggests that share prices fully and fairly reflect all relevant and available information. Relevant and available information can be divided into past information, public information and private information. Weak form efficiency This form of pricing efficiency arises when share prices fully and fairly reflect all past share price movements. Past share price movements cannot therefore be used to predict future share prices in order to make an abnormal gain and share prices appear to follow a random walk, with share prices responding to new information as this arrives on the capital market. Semi-strong form efficiency This form of pricing efficiency arises when share prices fully and fairly reflect all relevant and available public information, which includes all past information. Public information cannot therefore be used to make an abnormal gain, since capital markets and share prices quickly and accurately respond to new information. Well-developed capital markets are held to be semi-strong form efficient. Strong form efficiency This form of pricing efficiency arises when share prices fully and fairly reflect all private information as well as public information. When capital markets are strong form efficient, no-one can make abnormal returns, even investors who possess private or insider information. This level of pricing efficiency is not found in the real world, which is why governments legislate against insider dealing. Significance of EMH to financial managers If the EMH is correct and share prices are fair, there is no point in financial managers seeking to mislead the capital market, because such attempts will be unsuccessful. Window-dressing financial statements, for example, in order to show a company s performance and position in a favourable light, will be seen through by financial analysts as the capital market digests the financial statement information in pricing the company s shares. Another consequence of the EMH for financial managers is that there is no particular time which is best for issuing new shares, as share prices on the stock market are always fair. Because share prices are always fair, there are no bargains to be found on the stock market, i.e. companies whose shares are undervalued. An acquisition strategy which seeks to identify and exploit such stock market bargains is pointless if the EMH is correct. It should be noted, however, that if real-world capital markets are semi-strong form efficient rather than strong form efficient, insider information may undermine the strength of the points made above. For example, a company which is valued fairly by the stock market may be undervalued or overvalued if private or insider information is taken into account. 14

6 4 (a) Objective 1 MFZ Co has stated an objective to achieve growth in profit before interest and tax of 4% per year. Analysis shows that profit before interest and tax growth was 3 4% in 2014 (18 3m/17 7m) and 3 5% in 2013 (17 7m/17 1m). MFZ Co has therefore not achieved this objective in either year. Objective 2 Year Profit after tax \$12 8m \$12 4m \$12 0m Number of shares 12m 12m 12m Earnings per share c c c Annual growth 3 2% 3 3% MFZ Co has stated an objective to achieve growth in earnings per share of 3 5% per year. Analysis shows that growth in earnings per share was 3 2% in 2014 (106 67c/103 33c) and 3 3% in 2013 (103 33c/100 00c). MFZ Co has therefore not achieved this objective in either year. Objective 3 MFZ Co has stated an objective to achieve growth in total shareholder return (TSR) of 5% per year. Analysis shows that growth in TSR was 11 4% in 2014 and 11 7% in MFZ Co has therefore achieved this objective in both 2014 and Year Equity market value \$56 4m \$55 2m \$54 0m Number of shares 12m 12m 12m Share price \$4 70 \$4 60 \$4 50 Dividends \$5 1m \$5 1m \$4 8m Number of shares 12m 12m 12m Dividend per share 42 5c 42 5c 40 0c On a per share basis: 2014 TSR = 100 x ( )/460 = 11 4% 2013 TSR = 100 x ( )/450 = 11 7% Alternatively, using total values: 2014 TSR = 100 x (56 4m 55 2m + 5 1m)/55 2m = 11 4% 2013 TSR = 100 x (55 2m 54 0m + 5 1m)/54 0m = 11 7% (b) (c) (d) Historical dividends per share have been 42 5c (2014), 42 5c (2013) and 40 0c (2012). There has therefore been zero growth in dividend per share in 2014, 6 25% growth in dividend per share in 2013, and an average dividend growth rate of 3 1% over the two-year period from 2012 to The same result could be found by considering total dividend paid rather than dividend per share, since the number of shares has been constant over the two-year period. If historical dividend per share growth is assumed to be an indication of future dividend per share growth, it seems reasonable to use a dividend growth rate of 3 1% or zero in the dividend growth model (DGM). Using zero future dividend growth, the 2014 share price using the DGM will be \$3 54 per share (42 5/0 12) and the 2014 total equity market value will be \$42 48m (\$3 54 x 12m). Using 3 1% dividend growth, the 2014 share price using the DGM will be \$4 92 per share ((42 5 x 1 031)/( )) and the 2014 total equity market value will be \$59 04m (\$4 92 x 12m). The 2014 equity market value on the capital market is \$56 4m. This is higher than the DGM value using zero future dividend growth and lower than the DGM value using 3 1% dividend growth. One reason for the difference between the 2014 equity market value and the values predicted by the DGM is that the capital market expects future growth in dividends to be different from the assumed value used in the DGM, e.g. slightly less than 3 1%. The future cost of equity of MFZ Co may also differ from the current cost of equity of 12% used in the DGM calculation and the current market price may reflect an expectation of a future change in the cost of equity. Cash needed for investment = \$9 2 million Cash to be raised = \$9 2m + issue costs = \$9 2m + \$0 2m = \$9 4 million Current share price = \$56 4m/12m = \$4 70 per share Rights issue price = 4 70 x 0 8 = \$3 76 per share New shares to be issued = 9 4m/3 76 = 2 5 million shares Total number of shares after issue = 12m + 2 5m = 14 5 million shares Theoretical ex rights price = [(12m x 4 70) + (2 5m x 3 76) 0 2m]/14 5m = \$4 52 per share Alternatively, theoretical ex rights price = (\$56 4m + \$9 2m)/14 5m = \$4 52 per share There are a number of sources of long-term debt finance which may be available to a listed company such as MFZ Co, with a variety of characteristics. 15

7 Long-term bank loan MFZ Co could obtain the \$9 2m which it needs for investment purposes via a bank loan, from either a single bank or from a syndicate of banks. Interest payments on the bank loan could be annual, twice yearly or quarterly, and at either a fixed rate or a floating rate of interest. Repayments of capital may be required along with interest payments and it is possible that a constant cash amount would be regularly paid, with the amount of interest in the payment declining and the amount of capital in the payment increasing over time. It is likely that the bank loan would be secured against particular non-current assets of MFZ Co, so that the bank could recover its loan if the company defaults on interest payments. Bonds or loan notes Bonds or loan notes may be redeemable or irredeemable (permanent), although in recent years irredeemable corporate bonds have been very rare. Fixed rate or floating rate interest is paid on the bonds, either annually or half yearly, with the interest being based on nominal (par) value of the bonds rather than on their market value. Bonds, like ordinary shares, are mainly traded on the capital markets and can be issued in a variety of foreign currencies. Redemption of a large bond issue can pose a serious cash flow problem for a company and may call for refinancing rather than outright redemption. The return required on debt finance (the cost of debt) is lower than the return required on equity (the cost of equity), and so MFZ Co could reduce its average cost of capital by issuing debt finance, as it is currently financed by equity alone. Convertible bonds or loan notes Convertible bonds or loan notes are bonds which, at the option of the holder, can be converted into a specified quantity of ordinary shares (the conversion ratio) on a specified future date (the conversion date). They have the advantage for the issuing company that, assuming conversion terms are set appropriately, conversion will occur and so redemption can be avoided. If conversion occurs, there can be a significant reduction in the gearing of the issuing company. The future option to convert into equity has value to investors and as a consequence, the interest rate on convertible debt is lower than that on ordinary bonds. Convertible bonds can pay interest annually or twice annually, at a fixed or a floating rate of interest. If conversion does not take place, however, redemption of the bonds or loan notes will be required. Deep discount bonds and zero coupon bonds The return to a bond holder consists of regular interest payments (income) and repayment of the principle amount on redemption (capital). Investors may accept lower interest payments (lower income) in exchange for an increase in capital return. This can be achieved if the bond is issued at a deep discount to nominal value, but redeemed at nominal value. This kind of financial security is called a deep discount bond and may be suitable for companies which do not expect an immediate return on invested capital. A zero coupon bond goes a step further and pays no interest (coupon) at all, so that the return to the investor is entirely in the form of capital appreciation. Bonds like these are useful for companies which expect cash flows from invested capital to occur mainly later in the life of an investment project, rather than more evenly throughout its life. 16
