Suppose Apic Bank lends 1 million to Ken and 5 million to Kiptoo. The probability of default in the first year for Ken is 0.2 and for Kiptoo is 0.3. The probability of joint default (both Ken and Kiptoo default) in 1 year is 0.1. The loss given default (LGD) is 40% for Ken and 60% for Kiptoo. What is the expected loss of default in 1 year for the Apic Bank?

Based on his own analysis, Tom is recommending that the company increase its use of equity financing because, “debt costs 12.5 percent, but equity only costs 10 percent; thus equity is cheaper.” Ignoring all the other issues, what do you think about the conclusion that the cost of equity is less than the cost of debt?

In: Finance

Suppose Tom O’Bedlam, president of Bedlam Products, Inc., has hired you to determine the firm’s cost of debt and cost of equity capital. The stock currently sells for $50 per share, and the dividend per share will probably be about $5. Tom argues, “It will cost us $5 per share to use the stockholders’ money this year, so the cost of equity is equal to 10 percent (5$5/$50).” What’s wrong with this conclusion?

Castle-in-Sand generates a rate of return of \(20 \%\) on its investments and maintains a plowback ratio of \(0.30 .\) Its earnings this year will be \(\$ 4\) per share. Investors expect a \(12 \%\) rate of return on the stock.

(b.) What happens to the P/E ratio if the plowback ratio is reduced to 0.20? Why?

(c.) Show that if plowback equals zero, the earnings-price ratio, E/P, falls to the expected rate of return on the stock.

NBA stars Kevin Durant and Chris Paul own a company that faces a 40% tax rate and uses a 14% discount rate. They just invested $677,000 in equipment for the banking app “Goalsetter” that would be depreciated on a straight-line basis to zero over the 6-year life of the project.

What is the NPV of this project if it requires $52,000 initially for net working capital, which will be recovered at the end of the project?

a. −$15,126

b. −$12,763

c. −$11,486
