Family fighting, drug use, poor parental guidance ultimately led to a life of anger and violence. As a child, his mother would often leave Ronnie and his brother Kenny alone while she went out to use drugs. On occasion, his aunt would look after the two boys while their mother was away. Not only did their aunt physically abuse them, but later on their mother’s boyfriend introduced them to using and selling drugs, stealing, and guns. Re-living these memories was as agonizing and traumatic as one could imagine but it was paramount in learning how and why he became the person he did. Many boys at Giddings were convinced that no one loved them, and Ronnie was no exception. Giddings therapists used these sessions to break through the wall he put up thinking that no one loved them or cared what happened to them. More often than not, they were successful reaching students this way.

1.a) To value Spyder Active Sports Inc., we decided to use the WACC method since we can easily value its cost of assets with the data immediately available to us in the case. We first unlevered the beta’s of 7 comparable companies and took the average to get a comparable unlevered beta for Spyder (Exhibit 1). Since we are assuming Spyder is entirely equity financed, its unlevered asset beta is equal to the beta of its assets. We now have a rough estimate of Spyder’s asset beta, we can

The reason for that I could make a call that there is a difference in the prices of houses sold via auction and non-auction for both suburbs while could not do so for them separately may be because that as mentioned before, Epsom has a considerably higher median price than One Tree Hill, while in Epsom auction is a more favoured method. The fact causes that in the random sample most of the houses sold via auction are in Epsom and most houses sold via non-auction are in One Tree Hill. With Epsom’s generally higher sale price compared with One Tree Hill, there appears to be a difference between house price via auction and non-auction but the difference may actually be greatly affected by the difference of prices of the two suburbs. However

Valproate, a commonly worldwide drug treatment used since 1967 (in France,) to prevent a series of epilepsy or bipolar disorder symptoms during a women’s pregnancy or a woman was likely able to reproduce at age of her mid-thirties and mid-forties. French studies shown Valproate is “four times likelier” to cause disfiguration during the development of the babies. About 2,150 to 4,100 children were affected by the “link ‘of’ the drug” causing severe defects including malformations and autism. Many families spoke out about the crisis. APESAC, a French umbrella organization, (a large association of institutions, which coordinates the activities of its member organizations and works to protect their shared interests) sued Sanofi, the drug’s manufacturer
As Star River is a private company and has not issued stock, we need to make several assumptions when calculating market value of equity and price of equity. Analysis of similar companies reveals that Wintronics, Inc. and STOR-Max Corp. are the most similar firms in the market. To calculate Star River’s market value of equity I used market to book value method. I found M/B for Wintronics to be 4.4 (market price per share/book value per share) and 3.9 for STOR-Max. an average M/B ratio is 4.15, so multiplying Star River’s book value of equity of 47004 by 4.15 I found Star River’s market value of equity to be SGD195,066.6M. Average beta of these two companies is 1.615. The global equity market premium is 6%, and I use 10 year Singapore T-bond yield of 3.6% as my risk free rate.
