Photochronograph Corporation (PC) manufactures time series photographic equipment. It is currently at its target debt-equity ratio of .7. It’s considering building a new $70 million manufacturing facility. This new plant is expected to generate aftertax cash flows of $7.3 million in perpetuity. The company raises all equity from outside financing. There are three financing options: |
1. |
A new issue of common stock: The flotation costs of the new common stock would be 6.9 percent of the amount raised. The required return on the company’s new equity is 13 percent. |
2. |
A new issue of 20-year bonds: The flotation costs of the new bonds would be 2.4 percent of the proceeds. If the company issues these new bonds at an annual coupon rate of 4 percent, they will sell at par. |
3. |
Increased use of accounts payable financing: Because this financing is part of the company’s ongoing daily business, it has no flotation costs, and the company assigns it a cost that is the same as the overall firm WACC. Management has a target ratio of accounts payable to long-term debt of .10. (Assume there is no difference between the pretax and aftertax accounts payable cost.) |
What is the NPV of the new plant? Assume that PC has a 23 percent tax rate. (Do not round intermediate calculations and enter your answer in dollars, not millions, rounded to the nearest whole dollar amount, e.g., 1,234,567.) |
