1. (Weighted average cost of capital). As a member of the Finance Department of Ranch Manufacturing, your supervisor has asked you to compute the appropriate discount rate to use when evaluating the purchase of new packaging equipment for the plant.

 Data Table Source of Capital Market Values Bonds \$4,300,000 Preferred Stock \$2,400,000 Common Stock \$6,200,000

To finance the purchase, Ranch Manufacturing will sell 10-year bonds paying 7.4% per year at the market price of \$1,039. Preferred stock paying a \$1.98 dividend can be sold for \$24.88. Common stock for Ranch Manufacturing is currently selling for \$54.18 per share and the firm paid a \$2.94 dividend last year. Dividends are expected to continue to grow at a rate of 4.7% per year into the indefinite future. If the firm’s tax rate is 30%, what discount rate should you use to evaluate the equipment purchase?

1. (EBIT-EPS analysis). Abe Forrester and three of his friends from college have interested a group of venture capitalists in backing their business idea. The proposed operation would consist of a series of retail outlines to distribute and service a full line of vacuum cleaners and accessories. These stores would be located in Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio. To finance the new venture two plans have been proposed:

· Plan A is an all-common-equity structure in which \$2.4 million dollars would be raised by selling 90,000 shares of common stock

· Plan B would involve issuing \$1.2 million dollars in long-term bonds with an effective interest rate of 12.1% plus \$1.2 million would be raised by selling 45,000 shares of common stock. The debt funds raised under Plan B have no fixed maturity date, in that this amount of financial leverage is considered a permanent part of firm’s capital structure.

Plan B has no fixed maturity date, in that this amount of financial leverage is considered a permanent part of the firm’s capital structure.

Abe and his partners plan to use a 35% tax rate in their analysis, and they have hired you on a consulting basis to do the following:

1. Find the EBIT indifference level associated with the two financing plans.

2. Prepare a pro forma income statement for the EBIT level solved for in Part a. that shows that EPS will be the same regardless whether Plan A or B is chosen.

3. Find the EBIT indifference level associated with the two financing plans

The EBIT indifference level associated with the two financing plans is \$______.(Round to the nearest dollar.)

1. Prepare a pro forma income statement for the EBIT level solve for in Pat a. that shows that EPS will be same regardless whether Plan A or B is chosen.

1. (EBIT-EPS analysis). Three recent graduates of the computer science program at the University of Tennessee are forming a company that will write and distribute new application software for the iPhone. Initially, the corporation will operate in the southern region of Tennessee, Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina. A small group of private investors in the Atlanta, Georgia is interested in financing the startup company and two financing plan have been put forth the consideration:

The first (Plan A) is an all-common-equity capital structure. \$2.5 million dollars would be raised by selling common stock at \$20 per common share.

Plan B would involve the use of financial leverage. \$1.3 million would be raised by selling bonds with an effective interest rate of 11.3%(per annum), and the remaining \$ 1.2 million would be raised by selling common stock at the \$20 price per share. The use of financial leverage is considered to be a permanent part of the firm’s capitalization, so no fixed maturity date is needed for the analysis. A 34% tax rate is deemed appropriate for the analysis.

1. Find the EBIT indifference level associated with the two financing plans.

2. A detailed financial analysis of the firm’s prospects suggests that the long-term EBIT will be above \$301,000 annually. Taking this into consideration, which plan will generate the higher EPS?
