8. If a company has $181,000 in total liabilities and $225,000 in total assets, what percentage of total assets is being financed with the use of other people’s money? 80.4 (http://www.cliffsnotes.com/study_guide/Ratio-Analysis.topicArticleId-21248,articleId-21213.html)
The firm has decided to increase the debt finance component portion from 20% to 30% which is a good decision since the interest payments are 100% tax deductible. The appropriate capital structure would be to
We would recommend the capital structure with 30% debt. This is because with 30% debt, they would be able to repurchase 19.8 million shares outstanding as well as save 37.8 million in taxes. EBIT is high in this company, and because of this, financial leverage will raise EPS and ROE. However, variability also increases as financial leverage increases, so the company would not want to take on too much debt and become very risky.
Problem 15-9: Capital Structure Analysis Present situation (50% debt): WACC = wd rd(1-T) + wcers = (0.5)(10%)(1-0.15) + (0.5)(14%) = 11.25%. V = FCF/WACC = (EBIT)(1 − T)/WACC = ($13.24)(1 0.15)/ 0.1125 = $100million 70 percent debt: WACC = wd rd(1-T) + wcers = (0.7)(12%)(1-0.15) + (0.3)(16%) = 11.94%. V = FCF/WACC = (EBIT)(1 − T)/WACC = ($13.24)(1 0.15)/ 0.1194 = $94.26million 30 percent debt: WACC = wd rd(1-T) + wcers = (0.3)(8%)(1-0.15) + (0.7)(13%) = 11.14%. V = FCF/WACC = (EBIT)(1 − T)/WACC = ($13.24)(1 0.15)/ 0.1114 = $101.2million
However, the Walgreens’ capital structure is similar to its stronger competitor CVS’ capital structure that I defined as the benchmark. CVS has a total liabilities and shareholders’ equity of $54,721.90, where total debt is $23,400 representing the 42.76% and total equity is $31,321.90 which represents 57.24%. Moreover, if we compare 2006 results to 2007, I realize that capital structure
2. Forecast the firm’s financial statements for 2002 and 2003. What will be the external financing requirements of the firm in those years? Can the firm repay its loan within a reasonable period? In order to forecast the financial statements of 2002 and 2003, the following assumptions need to be made. The growth of sales is 15%, same as 2001, which is estimated by managers. The rate of production costs and expenses per sales is constant to 50%. Administration and selling expenses is the average of last 4 years. The depreciation is $7.8 million per year, which is calculated by $54.6 million divided by 7 years. Tax rate is 24.5%, which is provided. The dividend is $2 million per year only when the company makes profits. Therefore, we assume that there will be no dividend in 2003. Gross PPE will be $27.3 million (54.6/2) per year. We also assume there is no more long term debt, because any funds need in the case are short term debt, it keeps at $18.2 million. According to the forecast, Star River needs external financing approximately $94 million and $107 million in 2002 and 2003, respectively. In order to analysis if the company can repay the debt, we need to know the interest coverage ratio, current ratio and D/E ratio. The interest coverage ratios through the forecast were 1.23 and 0.87 respectively, which is the danger signal to the managers, because in 2003, the profits even not
The cash flow statement consists of three parts: cash flows provided by operating activities of $13,831, cash flows provided by investing activities, and cash flows provided by financing activities effect of exchange rate changes on cash and cash equivalents of ($204)
In Scenario A, the Debt would remain at 0 for good. This results in a D/V ratio of 0 which gives us a WACC of 9.21. Using the WACC to derive the Enterprise value of the company, it is found to be $3.043B. Subtracting the debt of $1.25B, we have a Value of Equity of $1.79B. Subtracting the $765M that is
(10 points) Mango, Inc. has had debt with market value of $1 million that has paid a 6% coupon and has had an expiration date that is far, far away. The expected annual earnings before interest and taxes for the firm are $2 million and the firm has not grown, nor does it have plans for any growth. The firm however has just raised more equity to retire all its debt. If the required rate of return to equity-holders (after the capital structure change) is now 20%, what is the market value of the firm? Assume there are no taxes. (Enter just the number without the $ sign or a comma; round to the nearest whole dollar.)
