Sales growth rate = g 30% Last year’s notes payable $50

Last year’s total assets = A0* $500 Last year’s accruals $30

Last year’s profit margin = PM 5% Target payout ratio 60%

Answer

Question 3

  1. You were hired as a consultant to Quigley Company, whose target capital structure is 35% debt, 10% preferred, and 55% common equity. The interest rate on new debt is 6.50%, the yield on the preferred is 6.00%, the cost of common from retained earnings is 11.25%, and the tax rate is 40%. The firm will not be issuing any new common stock. What is Quigley's WACC?

    Answer

    8.15%
    b.
    8.48%
    c.
    8.82%

Question 4

  1. Which of the following statements is CORRECT? Assume that the project being considered has normal cash flows, with one outflow followed by a series of inflows.

    Answer
    a.

    The longer a project’s payback period, the more desirable the project is normally considered to be by this criterion.

    b.

    One drawback of the regular payback for evaluating projects is that this method does not properly account for the time value of money.

    c.

    If a project’s payback is positive, then the project should be rejected because it must have a negative NPV.

    d.

    The regular payback ignores cash flows beyond the payback period, but the discounted payback method overcomes this problem.

    e.

    If a company uses the same payback requirement to evaluate all projects, say it requires a payback of 4 years or less, then the company will tend to reject projects with relatively short lives and accept long-lived projects, and this will cause its risk to increase over time.
