USE THE INFORMATION BELOW TO ANSWER THE FOLLOWING 3 QUESTIONS Southeastern Electric has a target capital structure that calls for 40% debt, 10% preferred stock, and 50% common equity. The company s current aftertax cost of debt is 5%, and it can sell as much debt as it wishes at this rate. The company s preferred stock currently sells for $45 a share and pays a dividend of $5 per share; however, the company will net only $40 per share from the sale of new preferred stock. Southeastern Electric s common stock currently sells for $50 per share. The company recently paid a dividend of $1 per share on its common stock, and investors expect the dividend to grow indefinitely at a constant rate of 10% per year. 11.

4 13. What is Southeastern s weighted average cost of capital? a. 12.5% b. 8.3% c. 10.5% d. 11.9% e. 14.1% 14.

The firm now has only debt and equity, and estimates that it will continue to use only debt and equity in the future also. It has determined that the optimal capital structure is given by a debttoequity ratio of 0.5. At this ratio, its pretax cost of debt is 6%. It has estimated that if it had no debt, then its beta would be 1.2. Assume the riskfree rate is 2% and the market risk premium is 7%. Assume the firm s tax rate is 40%. Based on this information, what is the WACC at the optimal capital structure? a. 9.81% b % c. 7.00% d. 8.26% e % 16. Restown, Inc. has an optimal capital structure of 50 percent debt and 50 percent equity. The firm s weighted average cost of capital is 14.2%. All else constant, if the riskfree interest rate increases, due to higher expected inflation, Restown s WACC would: a. increase b. decrease c. either increase or decrease depending on the magnitude of the increase in the riskfree rate. The greater the increase in the riskfree rate, the more likely that WACC would increase. d. either increase or decrease depending on the magnitude of the increase in the riskfree rate. The greater the increase in the riskfree rate, the more likely that WACC would decrease. e. There is no relationship between the riskfree interest rate and Restown s WACC. 17. Suppose the firm's Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC) is stated in nominal terms, but the project's cash flows are expressed in real dollars. In this situation, the calculated NPV normally would a. be correct. b. be biased downward. c. be biased upward. d. possibly have a bias, but it could be upward or downward. e. More information is needed; otherwise, we can make no reasonable statement.
5 USE THE INFORMATION BELOW TO ANSWER THE FOLLOWING 3 QUESTIONS Pooh Industries is contemplating replacing a piece of existing equipment with a more efficient model. The old equipment was purchased 2 years ago for $330,000. It is being depreciated using the straightline method to salvage value of $30,000 over an original life of 10 years. Pooh could sell the existing equipment today for $255,000. The new equipment would cost $800,000 and would be depreciated over an expected life of 8 years to a zero salvage value using the straightline method. Pooh forecasts that the new machine would reduce operating expenses by $170,000 per year. The firm's marginal tax rate is 40% and its hurdle rate is 15%. The new machine would require additional net working capital (aka motor oil) of $60,000 when it is purchased and another $60,000 at the beginning of year 5. All the working additional net working capital would be returned at the end of the 8th year. Should Pooh make the replacement? 18. What is the net initial cash outlay of this replacement project. a. $ b. $ c. $ d. $ e. $ 19. What is the net operating cash flow in Year 1 for this replacement project? a. $ b. $ c. $ d. $ e. $ 20. What is the final year nonoperating cash flow for this replacement project? a. $ b. $ c. $ d. $ e. $ 21. Which of the following statements is most correct? a. Since debt financing raises the firm's financial risk, raising a company s debt ratio will always increase the company s WACC. b. Since debt financing is cheaper than equity financing, raising a company s debt ratio will always reduce the company s WACC. c. Increasing a company s debt ratio will typically reduce the marginal cost of both debt and equity financing; however, it still may raise the company s WACC. d. Statements a and c are correct. e. None of the statements above is correct.
6 22. Ridgefield Enterprises has total assets of $300 million. The company currently has no debt in its capital structure. The company s basic earning power is 15 percent. The company is contemplating a recapitalization where it will issue debt at 10 percent and use the proceeds to buy back shares of the company s common stock. If the company proceeds with the recapitalization, its operating income, total assets, and tax rate will remain the same. Which of the following will occur as a result of the recapitalization? a. The company s ROA will decline. b. The company s ROE will increase. c. The company s basic earning power will decline. d. Answers a and b are correct. e. All of the above answers are correct. 23. Which of the following events is likely to encourage a company to raise its target debt ratio? a. An increase in the corporate tax rate. b. An increase in the personal tax rate. c. An increase in the company s operating leverage. d. Statements a and c are correct. e. All of the statements above are correct. 24. Which of the following would increase the likelihood that a company would increase its debt ratio in its capital structure? a. An increase in costs incurred when filing for bankruptcy. b. An increase in the corporate tax rate. c. An increase in the personal tax rate. d. A decrease in the firm s business risk. e. Statements b and d are correct. 25. Volga Publishing is considering a proposed increase in its debt ratio, which will also increase the company s interest expense. The plan would involve the company issuing new bonds and using the proceeds to buy back shares of its common stock. The company s CFO expects that the plan will not change the company s total assets or operating income. However, the company s CFO does estimate that it will increase the company s earnings per share (EPS). Assuming the CFO s estimates are correct, which of the following statements is most correct? a. Since the proposed plan increases Volga s financial risk, the company s stock price still might fall even though its EPS is expected to increase. b. If the plan reduces the company s WACC, the company s stock price is also likely to decline. c. Since the plan is expected to increase EPS, this implies that net income is also expected to increase. d. Statements a and b are correct. e. Statements a and c are correct.
