For CSC: DD+E=0.05. βA=DD+EβD+ED+EβE=0.05*0+0.95*2.27=2.16 For QRG: DD+E=0. βA=DD+EβD+ED+EβE=0*0+1*1.79=1.79 (3) Estimate Ameritrade’s WACC. The average asset beta of CSC and QRG = 1.972. WACC=Rf+avebetaassets*market risk premium = 6.61%+1.972*7.2%=20.81%. 6. Conclusion: Our estimated cost of capital, 20.81%, is lower than Ricketts’ expected return, 30%-50%, thus the investment is worthy. However, it’s higher than other pessimistic members’ expected return, 10%-15%, making the decision more complex and requiring further valuation。
Brenda Franklin had been serving Allied Tech for the past 8 years. As any other organisations, Brenda used to be a part of the lunch hour conversations with her colleagues. One day when her colleagues were discussing about corruption and politics, something occurred to her. As a result she prepared a list called “Ethically Dubious Conduct” and pasted it on the common notice board. Her colleagues were taken by surprise. Brenda was now anticipating the next lunch where she was expecting her list to be analysed among her colleagues.
1. Determine the reservation prices for BV and SS As a seller of SS to BV or IB, the reservation price for SS should be the minimum price for SS to accept the deal (either the cash deal offered by IB or the stock deal offered by BV). It is known that the minimum reservation prices of SS is the market price ($42.9) for cash deal ((Harvard Business Publishing, 2015). The determination of reservation price for BV needs to incorporate synergies and control benefits as a buyer. As a result, we will choose the highest reservation price using valuation methods and that is, $49.83 with the optimal synergies and WACC method. Though both differed from the average prices in the class, it is reasonable to suspect individuals neglected the cash deal option of IB and contributes to the higher reservation price for SS than my expectation. Also, for the overestimation of reservation price for BV, it is possible that single valuation methodology may trigger biases to lift up the result from its fair value. Hence, a weighted average of all valuation for the price may be more reliable and accurate.
The share price of $270,000 was significantly higher because the “fair value” as perceived by the dissenters, which accounted for the chance of an IPO. Taking into account the recently traded Kohler Co. share prices, the book value of a share, and the possibility of an IPO greatly inflated what the perceived value of each share should be. While Kohler believed their voting control and ownership structure would remain the same, the shareholders believed otherwise. Because shareholders assumed Kohler would go public, they argued for a higher valuation so as to receive the highest price, and thus profit, in the buyout. So based on the highest MVE, we picked Masco as the comparable firm of choice. Using Masco’s MVE, $9838.8, and LTM EBIAT, $437.3, we solved for Masco’s P/E ratio, which was equal to 22.5. By multiplying the P/E ratio by Kohler’s LTM EBIAT (22.5 * $93.76), we projected a market value of $2,109,610,000. To solve for estimated share price, we divided the projected market value by 7,587.89, the number of shares outstanding to obtain an estimated share price of $278,023.47. This estimate is near the $270,000 per share offer price.
Profit Margin (2002), $647,645 / $10,644,800 = 6.08 % Margin Return on Assets (2002), $2,675,250 / $10,796,200 = 24.78% Return Asset Turnover (2002) $10,644,800 / $2,271,400 = 4.69 Times Return on Common Stockholders’ Equity (2002) $647,645 / $1,928,960 = 33.58% Return
WACC Method Using the WACC method, we first derived UST’s return on assets (rA). Since we are given the firm’s market capitalization, debt and cash, we calculated the current Enterprive Value of UST. We were then able to derive the return on asset as a function of UST’s market value. Specifically, we followed the below steps:
Your required rate of return is 9 percent. Ignoring taxes, what is the value of one share of this stock today?

Context HCC Industries is a small publicly owned company headquartered in California that has four divisions across the United States. Three divisions manufacture and sell hermetically sealed electronic connection devices of various types, while one, Hermetite, produces microelectronic packages. HCC’s divisions are very self-‐contained and independent. A general manager runs
c. FVC worth assuming the merger occurs and the cost gains are derived It is determined that the company worth is $856,518 with a share price of $351.03 per value as per the discounting dividend cash flow valuation approach..In appraising the anticipated premerger performance of the company, the weighted average cost of capital is computed; the worth of the WACC for FVC is 9.2% as depicted in
Finally, we come up with the value for the operating after-tax operating cash flows for the next three years and the terminal value. We calculate the present value of these cash flows by discounting by the unlevered cost of capital, rU given as 8.7%, which gives us a value of the unlevered firm of ca. $566m.

HCC industries, a manufacturing company that produces hermetically sealed electronic connection devices along with microelectronic packages, is headquartered in Encino, California. Considering their highly sophisticated product line, one of HCC’s main clients was the U.S Military and government funded aerospace programs. HCC is made up of four distinct operating divisions: Hermetic Seal, Sealtron, Glasseal, and Hermetite. The divisions are highly decentralized and completely autonomous of each other. They all have different customer bases, different product lines and even different accounting systems. The divisions are also profit centers, by definition; each was responsible for their sales, costs, and bottom line. Each division also
