Chapter 16 Problems
1) Shapland Inc. has fixed operating costs of $500,000 and variable costs of $50 per unit. If it sells the product for $75 per unit, what is the break-even quantity?
2) Counts Accounting has a beta of 1.15. The tax rate is 40% and Counts is financed with 45% debt. What is Counts’s unlevered beta?
3) Ethier Enterprise has an unlevered beta of 1.0. Ethier is financed with 50% debt and has a levered beta of 1.6. If the risk-free rate is 5.5% and the market risk premium is 6%, how much is the additional premium that Ethier’s shareholders require to be compensated for financial risk?
4) Nichols Corporation’s value of operations is equal to $500 million after a recapitalization (the firm had no debt before the recap). It raised $200 million in new debt and used this to buy back stock. Nichols had no short-term investments before or after the recap. After the recap, wd _ 0.4. What is S (the value of equity after the recap)?
5)Lee Manufacturing’s value of operations is equal to $900 million after a recapitalization (the firm had no debt before the recap). Lee raised $300 million in new debt and used this to buy back stock. Lee had no short-term investments before or after the recap. After the recap, wd _ 1/3. The firm had 30 million shares before the recap. What is P (the stock price after the recap)?
6)Dye Trucking raised $150 million in new debt and used this to buy back stock. After the recap, Dye’s stock price is $7.5. If Dye had 60 million shares of stock before the recap, how many shares does it have after the recap?
7) Schweser Satellites Inc. produces satellite earth stations that sell for $100,000 each. The firm’s fixed costs, F, are $2 million; 50 earth stations are produced and sold each year; profits total $500,000; and the firm’s assets (all equity financed) are $5 million. The firm estimates that it can change its production process, adding $4 million to investment and $500,000 to fixed operating costs. This change will (1) reduce variable costs per unit by $10,000 and (2) increase output by 20 units, but (3) the sales price on all units will have to be lowered to $95,000 to permit sales of the additional output. The firm has tax loss carry forwards that cause its tax rate to be zero, its cost of equity is 16%, and it uses no debt.
a. What is the incremental profit? To get a rough idea of the project’s profitability, what is the project’s expected rate of return for the next year (defined as the incremental profit divided by the investment)? Should the firm make the investment?
b. Would the firm’s break-even point increase or decrease if it made the change?
c. Would the new situation expose the firm to more or less business risk than the old one?

Expert:  Manal Elkhoshkhany replied 6 years ago.

It is in word.. We are having technical problems with the file attachment feature on JA so I uploaded the solutions to an external file sharing website

 

Click on the link, it will open a new site, to your right you will see a link that says something like "Click Here to Download File", click on that and you will be able to access the file

Were you able to open it?

 

Also, please note that I have answered the question based on your message that said "

ok i have it now i will post my other question some time this weekend. I accepted your answer so you should have the money. The amount was 25 dollars that I put into my account
Expert:  Manal Elkhoshkhany replied 6 years ago.

No, you need to add that as a bonus. The money (if taken already from your credit card or bank account) is still in your JA account, you need to add a bonus so that the amount gets transferred to my account

 

Thank you

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
