You work for a leveraged buyout firm and are evaluating a potential buyout of Associated Steel. Associated Steel's stock price is $20 and it has 10 million shares outstanding. You believe that if you buy the company and replace its management, its value will increase by 100%. You are planning on doing a leveraged buyout of Associated Steel, and will offer $20 per share for control of the company. Assuming that you use equity (your own money) to pay for this deal, what will be your gain from the deal? What about other shareholders? Now assume you use debt to finance the deal. How does this change your gains vs. other shareholders when compared to part (B)?
