Capital Budgeting project

1. Find the costs (rate of return under current market conditions) of the individual capital components.a. Long-term debt:
PV = -$874.78, FV = $1,000, PMT = $100, n = 15, i = need to solve for this first
Kd = i (1-T)
Kd = i% (1 – .40)
Kd = i% (.60)
Kd = 6.94%

b. Preferred stock:
Kp = Dp / (Pp – F)
Kp = Hint: D is *$100 par value times 9%
Kp = 10.35%

c. Retained earnings (avg. of CAPM and bond yield + risk premium approaches):
CAPM:15.76%
Kj = Rf + ß(Km – Rf)

Bond yield = 7.09% (calculated above) + 5% risk premium
= 16.56%
Average of two approaches: 15.76 + 16.56 / 2 = 16.16%

d. New common stock:
Kn = D1 / (P0 – F) + g
Kn = 17.40%

2. Compute the value of the long-term elements of the capital structure, and determine the target percentages for the optimal capital structure (based on current market value).

a. Long-term debt:
Market value = # bonds (bond price) = $140,000,000
b. Preferred stock:
Market value = # shares (share price) = $9,000,000
c. Common equity (retained earnings):
Market value = # shares (share price) = $52,486,800

Net profit margin:

Net earnings:

Dividend payout ratio:

New retained earnings in year 0:

*The firm also expects $10 million in retained earnings in year 1

Retained earnings breakpoint:

3. Compute the Year 0 investment for Project I.
$ (equipment) + $ (installation) + $ (AR/Inventory – Working capital) =

Year 0 Investment = $15,000,000 + $2,000,000 + $4,000,000
Year 0 Investment = $21,000,000

4. Compute the annual operating cash flows for years 1-6 of the project.

Long term debt 6.94%
Common stock 17.40%
Preferred stock 10.35%
